If the Cowboys thought DeSean Jackson was a handful Monday night, wait until they see Greg Jennings on Sunday.

Jackson was a small, fast and inexperienced rookie wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles. Jennings is a compact, fast and powerful wideout with polish for the Green Bay Packers.

Ask the Detroit Lions, who surrendered bombs of 62 and 60 yards to Jennings last week. He finished the day with six catches for a career-best 167 yards.

Ask the AFC West. In 2007, Jennings singed the Denver Broncos for an 82-yard touchdown, the Oakland Raiders for an 80-yarder, the Kansas City Chiefs for a 60-yarder and the San Diego Chargers for a 57-yarder.

More Cowboys
Brett Favre looked to Donald Driver for first downs last season. But Jennings emerged as his deep threat with 12 touchdowns and a 17.4-yard average. Jennings is becoming both the go-to guy and deep threat for new Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Driver and Jennings have 11 catches apiece through two games this season. But Jennings has 258 yards and a 23.5-yard average. Driver has 90 yards and an 8.2-yard average.

Jennings (5-11, 198 pounds) will be more difficult for the Cowboys' cornerbacks to contain at the line than the 167-pound Jackson, who ripped Dallas for six catches and 110 yards, including a 60-yard bomb.

If the Cowboys play back against Jennings, he is a slant route waiting to happen. And few in the NFL run them better or are more dangerous after the catch. He can turn a 10-yard reception into a 60-yard gain.

Jennings caught five passes for 87 yards and a touchdown last year in his first game against the Cowboys. He caught Rodgers' first career TD pass during that game on a nifty 11-yard curl and spin. He also turned a quick sideline out into a 43-yard gain earlier in the same possession. So the Cowboys have already seen what Jennings can do.

The Cowboys didn't bring their A game for Jackson. They'd better bring it for Jennings.

And dont you guys forget Jennings is THE-MAN :whipitgood:

That's too bad, really. Williams couldn't cover his head with an umbrella.

So disappointed to hear that Williams is out, he's such a catastrophy at safety, and our recievers would have lit him up.

The way I see it, the Cowboys have a slight edge in this matchup because of their two big-play guys, Owens and Whitten. But is it possible that Jennings is now good enough to match what Owens does for the Cowboys? He's young and improving, while Owens is getting a little long in the tooth, though I admit that I still see no signs from Owens that he is in decline.
