Jermichael Finley: YOTTO2

Jermichael Finley has been active for the Pack's past two Preseason games, Arizona and Indianapolis, respectively. Say what you want about his lack of a filter, but it's been exciting to see 88 back in action. QB Aaron Rodgers seems to look Finley's way the most of any other option when he's at full strength. Along with an All-Pro on the outside in Greg Jennings, opposing Defenses are going to have their work cut out for them trying to stop the spread attack of the Packers. Finley is the very definition of a "matchup nightmare"; he is too big for D-backs, and too quick for Linebackers.

We saw a glimpse of what may be to come for the Pack TE this season when we saw a beautiful 18-yard TD strike from Rodgers to Finley. J-Mike got a couple steps on Colts LB Pat Angerer, and capitalized on a beautiful ball from A-Rod for their first (unofficial) TD hookup of the season. Jermichael labeled last season as "YOTTO", for the "year of the takeover". We know how last season ended for the Pack; Finley is now slapping the "YOTTO2" label on the 2011 season. Pack Nation can only hope for a similar result, ideally ending right where we saw J-Mike's first TD last night - Indianapolis.
