Greg Jennings: Recapping Jennings’ Week 6 Fantasy Performance
Back to what Jennings said: He (Ponder) has always been (in) a position where the stress and the pressure was on him, and he really didnt have the help around him to take that load off, outside of All Day (Adrian Peterson).

Then, there was some Favre-vs.-Rodgers talk, during which Jennings said, You give respect when you get respect, and brought up the well-worn incident when Rodgers said, Who? when asked about Jennings signing with the Vikings. I know Im messing with him, Jennings said of Rodgers. He got a little sensitive when I try to push him. Finally, there was some more very interesting stuff on Ponder and the Vikings as a whole: At some point, youve got to do something for yourself, so that whole, Man, hes always had great quarterbacks, throw that out the window now. If LeBron wouldve went somewhere where there was no one else, it wouldnt have been a big deal if he went somewhere where he had no Dwayne Wade or Chris Bosh. I expect nothing but greatness (with the Vikings this year). When you see what they were able to do last year, with the guys they had on that team, great guys, but it goes beyond that.

“We’re looking forward to him making some of those plays for us.” Frazier, a former cornerback, adds that Jennings remains an elite route-runner. “You don’t have to be a blazer because he knows how to run routes, knows how to set DBs up, and he understands different coverages,” Frazier said. “That’s a big asset of his.” Jennings takes pride in his route-running, pointing to a few notable players who excelled with that skill. “One person who I admired for years was Hines Ward,” Jennings says. “He just knew how to get http://www.nflpackerspro.com/116-greg-jennings-jersey5 open.

Vikings sign WR Greg Jennings
You don’t have to be stirring it up any more. It’s just not necessary. I think he got the message. He understood and he agreed with me and hopefully there won’t be anything more like that.” Attempting to soften the impact of his critique of Rodgers, Jennings said Thursday that a piece of himself was still in Green Bay, and that “everything I said, I’m joking. I’m messing. I’m pulling Aaron’s arm.
Vikings snatch Greg Jennings from division-rival Packers
You were very good here, if you would have been healthy you would have been great. fwippel says: Jul 26, 2013 7:06 PM As a Viking fan, I really hate to say this, but what the heck has Rodgers done wrong recently? Even in the playoff loss to the 49ers, his offense put up enough points to win, but the defense got flattened. If the defense had showed up against Minnesota in Week 17, chances are the Packers get the 49ers in Green Bay, and stand a much better chance of winning. Every time Ive seen Rodgers play, hes been nearly flawless. What the heck is Jennings talking about? granadafan says: Jul 26, 2013 7:10 PM Jennings is like the jealous ex-girlfriend who has to continually criticize everything you do and everyone around you. Actually Jennings is more like his crazy sister who ruined Jennings relationship with the Packers. filthymcnasty1 says: Jul 26, 2013 7:12 PM I think Jennings is still bent out of shape about being sent down to the minors in MN.
