Greg Jennings he has the Jerry Rice effect. I don't want people to jump on me that I'm comparing him to Jerry Rice. But I am comparing them in this aspect: Jerry Rice runs his routes at the same speed, all of his routes the same speed. The defensive backs don't know when he's running deep or when he's running shallow. They don't know when he's running intermediate. They don't know. Jennings runs with the same smooth, deceptive stride and it's confusing for a defensive back because you look at his speed and you go, 'He can't be running deep', and then he's got you...this guy is going to be a Pro Bowl player and be one of the top receivers in the league. He's one of the best young, up-and-coming receivers. As defensive backs we have a "numbers" tree: a 9 is a go route, an 8 is a post route and like that. He runs all those routes on the numbers tree the same speed. That is hard to defend.
Once again, I remind Corey that at the beginning of last season, I said Jennings was going to be a star, which caused my Transplants co-host to shower me with derision. I only bring this up to make myself feel better after my rough start to the day...
