Packers Calendar: M.D. Jennings Joins SiriusXM Radio

Green Bay Packers safety M.D. Jennings will be a guest on SiriusXM satellite radio's Press Pass on Sunday morning, which airs from 7:00 to 11:00 a.m. CT.

Hosts on Sunday are Ralph Vacchiano and Solomon Wilcots. No specific time for Jennings' interview has been published.

Potential topics to be discussed include the battle at safety and Jennings' reaction to recent actions by former NFL replacement referee Lance Easley.

Last week Easley took posed for a photo with Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate, he of the now infamous touchdown from the "Fail Mary" game of 2012. Easley has also maintained he made the correct touchdown call and published a soon-to-be-released book.

As for the competition for a starting job in the Packers secondary, Jennings is set to take on Jerron McMillian, with the winner to line up next to Morgan Burnett.

Whereas McMillian's strength is his in-the-box physicality, Jennings' forte is his pass coverage, which provides a natural contrast in style of play.

Bat the ball down.

Batting the ball down guarantees nothing, just ask Glover Quin, but let's blame Jennings for making a play that wasn't called correctly.

Knock it down,knock it down,knock it down

And had he batted it and it was caught for a real TD...y'all would be bitching that he didn't just catch it. "But it was such an easy catch!!"

Some people are doomed to always second guess things they don't fully understand.

I'm so happy that you are able to deny human nature and not second guess anything in your life and others remain doomed.
Without looking up any data,I suspect that nearly every coach in football from PeeWee to the NFL instructs their players to knock it down.
Can a batted ball be caught for a 'real' TD,sure,but the odds of that are IMO much less than the odds of the call going against the Receiver in a equal or even less than equal possession argument or as seen in Seattle where the defender clearly had majority of such.
The best defense against 'Hail Mary'game ending end zone passes...knock it down.

With how bad the officials were in that game, if the ball had been batted down they probably would've called a defensive pass interference. Too many what ifs. I think he made a great play on the ball and we all got screwed by the officials.

Exactly. I think this play was such a one in a million shit show that to complain about anything Jennings did is silly. Bottom line is he made the play.

Knocking it down puts it right into Tates hands. Only effective knock dowm is over Jennings head. In which case catching it is the better option. There was literally nowhere to knock it down in front or to side. Watch the replay.

You're changing the play in your head & telling us what would have happened? You have one vivid imagination, dude!!

Jennings could very well have punched the ball into another galaxy if he had tried. ... Hey, sounds even better!

Stroh's picture

Seriously dude your an idiot! Watch the damn replay. Tate is below and a bit to Jennings Right, there are players everywhere in front of Jennings, mostly Packers, but knocking it down means a probable ricochet off another player. Jennings was behind everyone else and there were about 4 other players right in front of Jennings. The only thing to do is catch it or try to cause it to go over his head! Jennings made the best choice to catch it.

" ...every coach in football from PeeWee to the NFL instructs their players to KNOCK IT DOWN."

One of the very first things taught to any DB at any level but yet Stroh & his aliases still don't get it.

Jennings made a major mistake. GB lost the game as a result. However, let's still blame an inept replacement ref. ... Hilarious.

Actually, what Jennings made was an interception. The officials blew that call, as well as missing Tate's PI on Shields. The inept officiating was one reason for the loss, as well as the crap performance of GBs offense. Jennings is far, far down the list of reasons GB lost that game, if he's on it at all.
