I still think the Packers will end up missing Jennings more than the Vikings will gain.

As others have said, Jennings only has Ponder to work with. Imagine what ANY of Packers receivers would be like if they had Ponder throwing to them rather than Rodgers.

But the Packers don't have Ponder.

And they also don't have anyone as good as Jennings at running routes and separating at the line.

Yes, I know, they didn't have him a lot last year and look where they ended up.

Ahem. Yes, indeed. Look at where they ended up
.


They made the playoffs and had a good offense.

The only thing that the Packers lost was some depth at the WR position IMO. Maybe it's because we didn't see a lot of Jennings last year, but I think Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and James Jones are just as good if not better than Jennings.

I don't think his sister's twitter rants had anything to do with the Packers parting ways with Jennings. If anything they were just reflective of what Greg's feelings really were.


Jones is one of my favorite players. And IMO currently their best WR. But I still think Jennings, who was never a favorite, is better.

I definitely think Jennings is better than Nelson. As for Cobb, I think Cobb can and hopefully will become greater than Jennings ever was or will be, but I don't think he's there yet

As for the twitter crap of sis being no factor, I agree.

To me Jennings doesn't add any more than Cobb individually, especially when considering intangibles. He didn't seem like the best team mate. What we do lose is being 4 deep in receivers.

Is Jennings better than any one of the current Packers wide receivers? I don't know, honestly. He used to be, but it's probably close to even now. And even if he is a little better, the difference isn't very significant to be worth the contract he received. It would be great to still have him for depth and such, but I think he's over rated. Good, but that's about it. The Packers already have 4 "good" receiving threats, a few of which could very well be, or are, better than good (if you will).

Homers, God bless em. I just love it when Packers players move on to another team and all of a sudden they suck and they were always over rated. Not everyone here fits that mold, maybe not anyone for that matter but I really have to laugh when I see some of these comments. Yes Jennings' numbers will suffer with Ponder throwing him the ball but for people to say he was not a good receiver and he was a product of the QB when he was with the Packers is just plain stupid. For a time Jennings was a legitimate #1 receiver and he still could be in the right offense. Prior to Nelson coming on two years ago there was no doubt for the previous few years that GJ was our best receiver and one of the better ones in the league. Maybe not top 10 perhaps but top 15. If that is not a legit #1 I don't know what is.

I get it, he spurned your team, and its even worse because he went to those purple guys, so he must pay but don't let your sudden hatred for a turncoat cloud your judgement. Had he resigned a lot of you would be saying how great he is and that its a good thing the Packers resigned their best receiver. I'm not going to point out anyone in particular but if you cant see what I am talking about you are not looking very hard. IMO I do think Wade and Dodd get it. I don't see why it is so hard to give an ex Packer his props even if he is playing for the enemy

At his age with his salary I was actually happy we didn't sign him. His been injured the passed two years + we need the $$$ to re-sign Raji, Finley etc... it was more a business plan for Thompson then actually wanting or needing him to sign back. It's a blessing in disguise.

Nobody's saying that he sucks and few people are calling him overrated - just not worth the contract for us.

Money issues and age aside, some of the slam on Greg is simply dishing out the kind of crap he gave to GB and Aaron Rodgers recently. Certainly he is a good player. But some of his top 15 comes from playing in GB with Brett and Aaron. Because they excel he was able to reap the benefits. It doesn't mean he isn't a good player. He runs good routes and he has good hands and he has decent speed and all of that. He had to get open or at least almost open for the QBs to throw the ball to him.

It kind of comes back to don't p!ss on my leg and tell me it is raining. There would be a lot more respect for Greg if he said my time with GB was special. Let's focus on my new team now. He couldn't do that. Some of it was in jest on his part. Some of it wasn't. If he and Aaron was to talk smack go ahead. They have each others phone numbers they can do it all they want. Aaron is a big boy and can certainly handle himself without anyone coming to his rescue. Greg crossed the line by doing so in the media. The Packer fans are flipping him off in return.

When he retires and comes back to GB with Starr and the rest of the old timers he will be appreciated once again for what he did while wearing G&G. Until then not so much.

My opinion would be the combo of Porforis & WPR's last two posts. It is not that I think he GJ sucks. I don't think he is worth the money the Vikings are paying him and given that he has only played with HoF caliber QBs I am guessing posssibly over-rated although a very good route runner. His talking smack also doesn't help. I agree with WPR if he would have kept his mouth shut and had been humble about his departure alright, but he didn't do that. Will I cheer for him when he retires and comes back, sure, but as of right now his diva behaviour has lowered my opinion of him.

I agree with you but if your gripe (not you personally but people in general) with Jennings is the way he runs his mouth now then say so. Don't try to belittle the guys on the field accomplishments. Not only does it makes YOU look as bad as you are trying to paint him it makes you look a little stupid. When people say he was a #2 receiver at best it just shows their football ignorance.

Wait, "your" team? I thought the Packers were your team as well?

Greg Jennings didn't "spurn" the Packers. He chose a team where he could be the number one WR, so he felt.


Greg Jennings at one point was a top 10 WR. That point was a few years ago.


I don't think Jennings signing with the Vikings instead of the Packers hurts the Packers that much. However, I do think Jennings helps the Packers more than he will help the Vikings.


As for suddenly sucking and being over rated. Several people on this site were saying just that while he was playing for the Packers. Those who have jumped ship, that's just them being loyal to their team.

Well I am glad you are saying not me specifically because I do not recall belittling his playing ability.

Remember to praise a guy one day and then criticize him the next is the way of sports. Think Phillie fans and many/most East coast fans. I find their attitude rather annoying.

I have however gotten more than a little frustrated with a guy who has made mistake after mistake after mistake but I don't say he was never any good. I suppose Finley for the past couple of years sort of falls into the category. It is really fun when a player who the fans have been complaining about, perhaps even in a game, makes a great play and the fans jump back on his side. It is not so much that they hate him. They just want him to live up to his potential.

Greg is a different matter since he won't wear the G&G again. It may in deed look bad that people complain about his skills but that is the way of sports. I don't think it will ever change.

I agree Jennings wasn't a #2 for a majority of his time here but after 2010 he did sort of get passed by Jordy. I know he was getting hurt but even when he played he was less productive. Then with Cobb showing up Jennings really wasn't needed on this team anymore and especially not for the amount of money he got. Saying those things isn't really ripping on Jennings because he's on a different team now it's just reality.
