    Didn't realize he was hurt. Could be the return of DD.

    I'm hoping the emergence of Jarrett Boykin. Either way one of them and Finley will have to step up.

    He just tweaked it. Not sure what they will do with him Sunday but not too worried about it. Rodgers is still going to torch Jacksonville. Might be better to just sit him just in case.

    Another Packers name that either starts or ends with a J?
    What's up with all these names with the letter J in them?
    And who do we play?
    The Jacksonville Jaguars.
    Oh noes! It's a conspiracy.

    I'll hope that the coaching and medical staff knows best, and knows Nelson's specific injury better than all of us. That said, if there is any potential to make it worse, I would rather sit Jordy against Jacksonville. Different story if we were playing the Giants or Bears.

    This is would be a blow. I'd advocate resting him and using Jones, Cobb, Driver, and Boykin. You kept Driver "just in case," well, "just in case" has happened. To have Jordy pop his hamstring in a game that we should win by 3 touchdowns would be foolish.

    It's Donald Driver.
    Not Jermichael Finley.
    So why the worry?

    We have very talented receivers, yes. Losing Jordy for the game would suck, yes. But, what we need to remember is that we have a quarterback that makes all of our receivers play better by throwing them open. Whoever steps up, Rodgers will help lift them.

    Yep. Say hello to Boykin!!!

    Let's say theoretically: What if Boykin does extremely well... Would that automatically end Jennings chances of coming back to Green Bay?

    No, Jennings could sign a 1 yr deal and re enter FA the next year after putting up good numbers. It's a possibility but it depends how the rest of the season goes

    Personally, I don't think Jennings would like that. Unlike Finley who did that, Jennings is getting "old"

    Yeah I think it's doubtful but wouldn't rule it out.

    I'd say 20% chance he is on the team next season

    I actually don't agree with you on the Super Bowl. Jennings already has a ring, at this point in his career it is more about long term deals a guaranteed money. A chance at another Super Bowl ring (especially if he gets another one this year like you are saying) means nothing. If he remains injured and teams are afraid to give him big bucks and a long term deal, THEN he would take the one year deal with the Pack. Yes a super bowl might have something to do with the one year deal being signed but the bigger part would be trying to put up big numbers (whether the Packers win or lose) so he can get a long term deal with big bucks during the 2014 off season. He would be more likely to sign a one year deal with the Packers knowing that he has and can put up big numbers in their offense as opposed to the Redskins or Dolphins who are more of an unknown. Again this would only happen if teams do not offer him the big bucks during this off season.

    I disagree haha. After 2 superbowls, a dynasty would form. Jennings could make a lot more money off of ads, etc.

    I don't think Boykin has any real impact on Jennings sticking around after the season. Jennings probably wants top-5 money. He probably deserves it. If that is what the market will bear for his services, he's gone to whoever will throw the most money at him.

    With him being injured, it's possible (likely) the market will be depressed. TT probably has a number in mind that he is willing to pay for Jennings. Maybe we'll get lucky and it'll play out like that ala James Jones.

    Assuming both Jennings and Driver are gone next year, we'd still have Jones, Nelson, and Cobb as the top three. That's pretty good. Boykin should make a huge improvement from year 1 -> 2 (though exactly what his ceiling is remains to be seen.) It's all but a given TT takes a receiver in the top 3 rounds and just like that, the position is restocked. Not quite as good top to bottom as this year and last year, but still quite good.
