The Green Bay Packers are going to be faced with a big decision. Jermichael Finley said this week he would not take a pay cut to re-sign with the team. Finley is due to receive $8.25 million in salary and bonuses this season but the Packers have other contract situations to deal with and Finley's inconsistent play has them thinking about re-doing that deal. Finley, who is going to be 26 this month, has always had an inflated perception of his talent and value and must believe that he can earn more on the open market. The Packers will owe him a $3.5 million dollar roster bonus this month so a decision will have to come soon. With the loss of Donald Driver and the probable loss of Greg Jennings, can the team also say goodbye to the potential of Finley as well. Or have they waited long enough for Finley's "potential" to manifest itself? It's the next big decision for a team that will have a bunch of them to deal with.

No songs of The Day today because they have changed some of our computer stuff for the new-look web site and my computer cannot cut & paste...only slightly annoying.
Have a great weekend!
