1.) Jermichael Finley is indeed the real deal. I got a little nervous this off-season when I read reports that he skipped team meetings and missed curfews, but if TGIFinley can keep up this kind of production, he will definitely be Rodgers go-to-guy in the clutch this year.
2.) Matt Flynn is still very raw and I don’t feel comfortable having him as a backup if Rodgers goes down.
3.) I want Tim Masthay to win the punting battle. He has more hang time and yardage than Chris Bryan and played a big part in holding ball perfectly for Crosby’s 51 and 53 yard converted field goal kicks. It was also great to see Mason Crosby regain his confidence again kicking in a big stadium atmosphere.
4.) Props to Sam Shields for his 98-yard interception return. I hope he makes the team in some way either as a cornerback or a key role on special teams.
5.) Quinn Porter should get cut. I remember watching him at mini camp and he either
dropped, bobbled, or muffed every punt during one practice. He also slightly bobbled one kickoff tonight deep in the end zone. He has scared me enough this year already.
