    A lot of people were down on Greg Jennings these past two weeks, even comparing him to Robert Ferguson because of the injuries, but he looked fine today.

    In his entire time here, did Fergie EVER make a play like the one Jennnings made today for the go-ahead TD? That was spectacular.

    Rejoice doubters, for Gregorious has (kindly) decided not to make your heads explode for doubting him. :p

    Let me take this opportunity to note that I have the same first name as Greg Jennings.

    Thank you. Thank you very much.

    Greg Jennings came back with a boom!

    Jones plays another great game and Driver has a big day as well! We have a pretty good receiver group! Ruvell Martin is a decent 4th receiver as well.

    Jennings said all along that he would play if the training staff would have let him.

    Looks like the medical staff made a good call by sitting him the first two games.

    Let's hope this approach work whenever Morency gets back. Because as much as I love watching Brett throw it all day, we still need to get a running game going before the playoffs start.

    too bad Ted Thompson didnt go out and buy up a speed receiver....


    Jones was really solid today man. he made a bunch of tough grabs and got the possesion side of the passing game going. and donald... well hes just the donald.

    Nice breakdown, millertime. Donald Lee made a couple of very athletic plays today. He reminded me of some of the really good receiving tight ends we've had in the past, like Jackie Harris and Keith Jackson.

    Okay, the announcers said Jennings was fast and now we have a post'er saying he is fast.

    When did this happen?

    Did he pull a Jerry Rice? (****** 40, burner on the field?)

    SHHHHHHHHHH! Don't tell anybody!

    HE'S SLOW. HE'S SLOW. JUST LIKE ALL OF OUR OTHER RECEIVERS. WE DON'T HAVE ANY PLAYMAKERS.

    I always thought Jennings was our fastest receiver. He's very deceptive with his speed as we saw in the beginning of last year. It doesn't look like he's running fast, but he manages to out run the defensive back.

    The best part of Jennings' game is the run after the catch. And I know we're all glad to see him back.

    That was a nice dive Lee had towards the end zone. You could tell he wanted to get in there for Brett. The offensive pass interference was a bad play, but i think Lee is used to pushing linebackers not corner backs. He sent that guy flying.

    I don't know what his 40 time is, but if they ran the 40 with a football in their hands, he would probably be near the top. He seems to hit another gear the moment he catches the ball.

    I've been watching the Channel 5 postgame show, and both guys they interviewed, Bubba Franks and Nick Barnett, said "The G Force is in full effect." I think they were talking about Jennings. I can't think of what else the "G Force" could be.

    That's a good take. It was still a blatant pushoff, but that does explain why he may have thought he could get away with it.

    Not quite, my head did explode when he made that td catch and I hadn't even gotten to the point of doubting him yet. Gregorious, that was sick.

    I think he'll always have injuries but the question is whether or not he can come back from that. In Fergy's case he couldn't. Now someone like Terrell Owens can. That's what I see in Jennings, just minus the mouth. :)

    Let's go with something a little more reliable, shall we?

    his time at the combine could have been faster than his pro day.

    but who cares??

    the guy is elusive. i'm glad he's back and so is the rest of packer nation. right now, i still think greg's better than jones. but i really like having all three out there once.

    i really want to see a fade thrown to ruvell martin in the endzone. we tried once in giant's game but ruvell got tripped up by the cornerback before he made it in the endzone. he got the pass interference and we got the touchdown. but i'm really curious if ruvell wouldbe a great fade route / jump ball kind of guy, ala TO, plaxico

    We are on the same page here. I was calling for this before last week's game. But with the top three receivers all healthy now, they probably don't need to throw a fade to the Rooster.
