Packers’ fans taunt Jermichael Finley

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley says fans will some times taunt him when they see him out and about doing normal things like going to the store.

“When I’m out and about, people will say, ‘Hey don’t drop your keys!'” Finley said, per the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “I get pretty much everything. It became second nature. It doesn’t bother me at all. It’s just something I had to overlook.”

Finley learned to tune out the negative feedback and focus on playing football.

“I just built a wall, built a shell and was a man about the situation,” Finley said, “by shutting them up and playing football.”

Finley was able to haul in 61 receptions this past season, which is the most ever by a Packers’ tight end in a season.

It will be interesting to see if the Packers re-sign Finley since it’s been reported that it’s a “coin flip” whether or not he comes back.

    It’s to bad when people are such A-holes. The man works hard and must have the skills needed to play the game. Most of the people that are taunting Finley have more than likely never caught anything more than a Nerf football from a 5 year old and not an all pro NFL quaterback. I’m not a Finley fan I’m a Packer fan and cheer on the team and all of it’s players.

    and you people call yourself Packer fans? how dumb are you? i grew up in Gb but live out west now and would LOVE to be in town to see the guys out in the community. What a blessing to have such a high-profile and successful team in your small back-yard. You have no clue how many other towns would love that honor and privelege. If you can’t control your idiotic, juvenile remarks, go to some other town without a football legacy and leave GB for the real fans. Finley, i hope you stay in Gb so i can see ya at august training camp.
