We know absolutely nothing except that Franklins career is over. Other then that, we have no details at all. Situations have nothing I do with each other and I wouldn't take anything away from Franklins situation and try and apply any positive or negative spin towards Fin.


I've got to imagine Franklin has stenosis of the spine. Same type of thing that Murphy had. No surgery over the off-season and they come out right away before TC and call him done, seems like thats the plausible outcome here. If it was a serious neck injury he would've remained down on the field, not ran off and probably required a fusion as well. I think he suffered a concussion on the opening kickoff of the home Vikings game and they found something they didn't like in the process.

Another kick-off injury leading to bad things. Same thing happened with Murphy. The Packers, who in TT's time have steadfastly refused to get a kick returner (instead, putting their talented WR's, CB's and RB's through the KO return meat grinder). Jeremy Ross was fine returning kicks, but the Packers have trotted out Nelson (who got an injured knee returning kicks) Justin Blackmon, Harris, Franklin, Hyde, Cobb's returned kicks and a dozen others.
Clearly, Franklin was not a talented returner last year. But, it didn't matter. As with Murphy, we've just sacrificed another promising young 'un doing something they should not have been doing.

As for Finley: Does he have to come up in every thread? You'd think Finley was as important to GB's success as Aaron Rodgers. Get over it, already, people. He's not coming back. At least, not in 2014.

I agree with you on Finley. But the opinion of jeremy Ross was not fine with me. He fumbled way to much. Put Packers in the hole to much. Rodgers opinion (showed all over his face) on TV. Wish them all a good life. Finley had his time. Move on.

Obviously he's become, even more-so, someone to talk about. We've definantly lost a few in-depth posters here and the Finley stuff is relatively easy to talk about. We all know he isn't Rodgers important but addind a healthy Finley to this roster and it would add a great problem for us at TE. Also, who knows if we take a shot adding Lyerla to the roster and look how interesting that has been so far even though we haven't even seen anything. All in all i lean towards Finley not returning but the discussion isn't a total farce.

Also, on Ross and our return game. Dude had to go, point-blank. No way to get around that one, but it's unfair to think our methods have been lacking. Sure we've tinkered with many guys at the spot but name me 5 teams who haven't. It's a hard position to obtain and sustain. Finding a perfect match is seemingly impossible, ntm it seems like only the great returners are allowed roster spots when they don't contribute elsewhere.

To the bolded part, did you happen to check the thread title? Makes sense to discuss Finley in the thread that is coinciding with his name. Seems appropriate enough.

On the Franklin front- I've got to agree with Packerraymond. Most likely he suffered the concussion and when they did the concussion tests they found something they didn't like. Probably something he's played with his whole career, but that puts him at a significantly high risk for neck injuries. Spinal Stenosis would be a good guess.

Not saying Ross didn't cost the Packers with the fumbling, just that he was the #5 receiver in a thin receiving corp., and therefore more expendable than the others I mentioned. That Ross could return kicks without the Packers risking a key offensive or defensive contributor in case of injury was a big plus. Ross had a very good year (compared to his previous years) with the Lions means the ability was there.

(As an aside---many blame Ross for the loss to the 49ers in the 2012 playoffs for fumbling the punt inside the 5. In that situation you trot out a Randall Cobb or Tramon Williams to fair catch the damn ball.)

Someone mentioned stenosis re: Franklin. Pretty good speculation.

The 45 man game day roster is too limited. You already are wasting 3 spots on specialists (K, P, LS), plus a few for backups you hope you never have to play (QB, OL) Your KR/PRs HAVE to be able to be contributors at their positions. Jeremy Ross wasn't a contributor AT ALL at WR, and he showed to be a liability as a returner.

Unless you have a rare talent like Devin Hester, it's just not worth wasting the roster spot on a returner who isn't capable of being a key contributor at a position.

You do not do that either. If a punt is coming down inside the 10 yard line you get the heck away from it, deck one of the guys coming down the field, and hope the ball bounces into the endzone. That one play did not necessarily cost the Pack that game, but it sure impacted the momentum and how the game was played from that point forward.

You aren't gonna say that a turnover in the last minute of a basketball game didn't cost you the game though because there are so many possessions to right the ship. Is's just like giving away a TD in a close football game, It definitely did cost us the game It made us a whole possession behind and 2 if we wanted to be ahead.

Seems they should have diagnosed the spinal stenosis before this. The numbness is the key. I say its a c-3 like Nick collins, and not just a bruise like Finley. It does explain the football being dropped! His body shook like Collins. He should of had neck warnings while on the IR. C-3 you can't take a chance. Move on.

This is one of my biggest beefs. IMO why have a 53 man roster if you can't suit ALL of them on game day?? Evil or Very Mad

Is spinal stenosis something you can easily diagnose before the draft? I feel like if it was more teams would be throwing red.

The 45 man game day roster is too limited. You already are wasting 3 spots on specialists (K, P, LS), plus a few for backups you hope you never have to play (QB, OL) Your KR/PRs HAVE to be able to be contributors at their positions. Jeremy Ross wasn't a contributor AT ALL at WR, and he showed to be a liability as a returner.

Unless you have a rare talent like Devin Hester, it's just not worth wasting the roster spot on a returner who isn't capable of being a key contributor at a position.


This is one of my biggest beefs. IMO why have a 53 man roster if you can't suit ALL of them on game day?? Evil or Very Mad


I agree Pugger...what sort of equity or balance or solution to an unknown problem is the league trying to achieve with this rule?
