Every team is taking away the deep ball threat of Jennings. Driver and James Jones are the monsters of the passing game now. Andrew Quarless looked pretty good though, thought he was flying under the radar during the draft process.
For as highly regarded as Jennings is, he should be able to find other ways to get open especially with Aaron Rodgers as his QB. People talk about him as a top 10 receiver but he's never shown me the ability to take over games like a Miles Austin, Andre Johnson, Calvin Johnson, etc.
Finley was leading the team in receptions and yards I believe and really made that offense go. I was expecting a big leap out of him this year to prove he was truly an elite all around TE, but the good news is that he is really young and has plenty of time.
If this surgery actually repairs it and projects better long term I would have done it also. But I think it's gonna be alot tougher on everyone else.

The Packers offense is really going to be hurting without him. I guess this will be Greg Jennings last chance to prove to me that he's not massively overrated.
Alright, this definitely hurts. JerMichael Finley has been huge for us and was only getting better. However, we were still a top offense before he came around. We've have had pretty much the same offensive weapons for years. In 2007 with Favre we were the second ranked offense, and in 2008 in Rodgers first year we were the 8th ranked offense. It's not like we have an offense dependent on JerMichael Finley. I don't want to minimize this loss too much because he was damn good for us, but we can get by without him. It's not comparable to say the Chargers losing Gates. Their offense is kind of built around Gates to an extent. Take him out and the Chargers are hurting big time. Finley was more of a luxury on top of our already strong offense. It's the loss of Grant that has hurt and will hurt the most.
Any word on him? Is he expected to come in and contribute right away, be eased in, or are you guys just hoping he'll get a chance?
They seem to be counting an awful lot on a guy (Starks) who hasn't stayed healthy or played a game since 2008.
We see other teams get guys like today the Eagles with Jerome Harrison, last week the juggernaut Seahawks getting Marshawn Lynch, while our GM sits and waits for Starks..... or else he thinks Brandon Jackson can carry the load. The thing is, this team rarely runs, but they better start doing it more so.
