Former Green Bay tight end Mark Chmura has beef with current Packers’ tight end Jermichael Finley about something. What that something is I don’t know, but Chmura’s recent comments about Finley on his radio show on ESPN 540 Milwaukee were nothing short of laughable.
From Total Packers.com:
“He is a great player, but he is a moron.” Chmura said Sunday during his gig as a host on ESPN Radio 540. A silly post-game quote sparked the derision, but this isn’t the first time Chmura has questioned Finley’s intelligence.
“Is Jermichael Finley stupid, arrogant and/or both?” Chmura asked beat writer Jason Wilde back in May.
Wilde eventually offered up that he doesn’t think Finley is “a terribly bright person . . . what’s the saying? All the tools and no toolbox?”
Chmura said at the time he “smelled a pending disaster” brewing when it comes to Finley and continued to ask if he was a moron.
“First thing I’d do, I’d say Shut your mouth. Shut up. Shut up! You’re dumb,” Chmura said. “You’re a heck of a player but . . . be quiet!”
Finley missed a couple of team meetings during the 2009 season and reportedly stayed out later than he was supposed to the night before the Packers’ playoff game in Arizona last year. I don’t know if that’s why Chmura called him a moron, but if so, I would argue that Finley was more irresponsible than unintelligent.
Besides, Chmura is the same clown that was accused of having sex in 2000 with the then 17-year-old babysitter of his children following a post-prom party. Granted, he was found not guilty of the charges but he was also a married man who decided that getting into a hot tub drunk with a bunch of teenage girls was a good idea, too.
The only moron here is Chmura. And the only person who should shut his mouth is Chmura.
