Jennings knew the Packers threw him to the curb just like they did Ryan Grant.One year hes the best reciever in the league and the next year the Packers fans say hes injury prone because he had one year with a groin injury.Now hes with a team that appreciates him and you can see why he'd be happier.When Jordy Nelson misses 4 games like last year they'll wish they had him back.

You and Jennings need some Preperation H for that butthurt! Jennings was PROBABLY our best receiver when healthy. Unfortunately, he wasn't healthy enough. In the NFL a player can't produce without being on the field and Jennings numbers reflected that simple fact. It was a business decision. The Packers let him go. They didn't kick him to the curb like the Vikings did to Percy Harvin. Jennings definitely SHOULD feel more appreciated and happier to be with a team willing to pay him more. The Vikings are in desperate need of receivers so it makes sense for them to pay Jennings big money even if he has been injured a lot lately. It simply didn't make the same sense for the Packers to take the chance that the Vikings are taking. I wish Greg Jennings luck, except when the Vikings play the Packers of course.1551

If Jennings was on the sidelines as much as the last few years, it is possible that he would have been passed by Finley also. I expect that Finley will be used on the outside a lot this season. The Packers have Mathew Mulligan and Quarless (or any other TE) to block. Putting Finley on the line will fool nobody. He may as well be used as a wideout.

C’mon guys...

These comments back and for between Rodgers, Jones, and Jennings are all in good fun. The players really don’t take things as far as us fans do. These guys take their jabs here and there but it is not serious and the players don’t take it serious either.

Like Jones said “ I don’t like Greg no more, he left us”. I think they are still close, Jennings is the godfather of Jones’s son.

And Rodgers saying “who?” when asked about Jennings at some event was meant in fun and to make the crowd laugh.

Jennings had a good shot too saying he would take Favre over Rodgers, maybe he would and why not Favre was great. But “the other guy they have now” comment was funny and in response to Rodgers “who?” comment.

Truth is Jennings is a great guy, a great character, and a lot of fun to have on your team. He is very positive and smiling all the time. I like Greg he is a lot of fun and really likable.

I see he picked up in OTAs at the same position he played for the Packers most of last year... rotating in at the #1 Spectator spot!

Yes it's all in good fun. The same as what should be with the fans. I always root for the NFC north all season long. I figure our divisions need to be the toughest division in the league. And let the winner win it all.(Except if its the packers :))

I considered Finley and his drops.If he matures ( with the stupid comments and complaints) straightens out the drops and finally plays like they think he could,Yea,I would put him up there.Im looking forward to seeing if TE Bostick makes the roster.He played well enough last year IMO but they placed him on the P.S. so heres to hoping he makes the roster

I'm actually more interested to see what Quarless can do. He is the most complete TE we have in terms of passing and running. I think he will have one of the best chances of strengthening the group. Although Finley has bulked up a bit so maybe his blocking might improve a bit. I hear FInley is more focused "now" I only ask why was he not "more focused" before hand? He is talented but he needs to produce this year or else he is gone. I think he can but I will wait and see. Either way he is still a good TE and a threat a major threat. I am just waiting for him to explode to the next level of elite TE who can take over games.

At least the Vikings didnt send Harvin to the Jets like some team we wont mention did.Harvin went where he wanted to go and the Seahawks had the cap space to pay him.The Vikings were good to Harvin.If Rhodes and Floyd turn out we got two players for one.Plus we still have a third round next year from the deal.The difference is Jennings was a free agent and he could go where he pleased.

Your also forgetting how many teams could afford Favre and his cap number.Minn and NYJ were the only teams interested and guess who GB would trade with? a Rival? No, why would they.Favre put himself in that situation. Not to mention look what GB did after.
They basically traded Favre for Clay Mathews and replaced Favre with Aaron Rodgers.Id say Ted Thompson looked like one of the best GMs in the NFL on that one and he is

It agree with you on Quarless,he was the TE for a team that won the SB but hes coming back from a pretty serious injury,hopefully hes fine and ready to go,but, Brandon Bostick was pretty darn impressive in the preseason games i watched him in and personally i thought he would make the roster but as a rookie,TT and Co. thought better of it and let him learn his craft on the P.S.for a season 6 3 250 and i believe he has a legit shot at the roster and very well will contribute.Finley is more focused i bet,,ill give you 9M reasons and a contract year as to why hes focused.
I expect Finley to have a probowl quality season with his career in GB and a huge payday on the line so GB can benefit from it.Question is,If he has a huge year,WIll GB give us the "he matured and turned the corner speech" and sign him L.T.( and we pray he did mature and can play at the high level for several years) OR do they look at the whole package and let him see whats out there and take our chances, as Quarrless is still here ect.Im sorry but i am suspicious of anyone who has a shitty year UNTIL the word out is he is being cut after the season is done,then he has a great last few games ( vs Chic.Minn and Det,,3 good defenses) and his im still young enough to break the bank comment after signing his current deal,,but, it seems to me Coach Mc likes this kid enough,they would resign him if the cash is there..( Granted coach Mc knows him better then any of us) but yea, if he ever gets his head out of his ass and plays the way he could,we will benefit for the 13 season and he may play himself out of GB

I thought that Tampa Bay was interested.The Packers kinda set themselves up when they gave Favre his own locker room and shower.

The Vikings didn't kick Harvin to the curb you can't say that when they got a first round pick & a third for him. Anyway this is about how Jennings did everything in his power not to say Aaron's name. I think it was funny & cool how he said Aaron was a Vet by the time he played his first season so you can't compare him to Ponder's

How about this If you want to compare their first full season Let's look at a full win loss record for a full season played. Ponder's 10-6 Rodgers 6-10 If the first full season is any indication on how a QB turns out Ponder should be one of the best. lol

The Vikings would have sent Harvin to the Jets or any team that would have made a deal like the Seahawks made. And Jennings was a free agent and did go where he pleased, so obviosly the Packers didnt dump him like the Vikings dumped Harvin.
IF the draft picks turn out the Vikings will get 2 for one, but will either or both be as good as Harvin? Many draft pick never play to their potential, espeially not the way Harvin did.

I root for the division for the same reason. Of ourse, it's easier when, as with last year, I knew that the Bears and Vikings had tough opponenets, including the PACKERS, near the end of the season. The Packers had the season in their own hands so there never was a doubt!

The Bears traded Gabe Carini to TB.I wonder if thats an opening for Kyle Long.

Kind of a blow for the Bears when their first rounder from 2011 doesnt pan out.Especially with how few picks theyve had the last few years.The Bears are destined to be the oldest team in the North.

Theres more to this than meets the eye.There irrenconcilable differences behind the scene.Who knows what it really was but it may be that he didnt like Musgrave.The Vikings did allot for Harvin.The Wilfs paid for him to go to the Mayo clinic during the playoffs when we really needed him.Ill never say that Harvin wasnt a great player but he had emotional problems or something.Hes caused problems every where hes been.He didnt want to come to otas and work with the other guys which is alright for some players but when the offense isnt clicking thats not the time to do it.Maybe now that hes making all that money that will change for him but I doubt he'll be content with a diminished role like he has in Seattle for more than a year.Keeping Harvin at this point would have hindered the offense more than helped it.If Patterson breaks a couple kickoffs for touchdowns Harvin will be forgotted cause he really only gave us one good year in 09.

Getting back to Jennings he really had no choice but to come to Minnesota.When the Dolphins signed Mike Wallace the market was dried up.Rodgers started it all by referring to Jennings as who.We all know that in the end Jennings will most likely retire as a Packer cause hes not going to get 7 years here at his age.
