In today's NFL, when a wide receiver makes a big play of any kind, you can be sure that at the end of said play, whether or not it results in a touchdown, the receiver in question will treat the crowd and the television viewing public to some kind of self-congratulatory dance/celebration.
Unless that receiever's name is Greg Jennings.
Seriously, go back and watch almost any of Jennings' big plays. At the end of almost every single one that doesn't end up in the end zone, you will see Jennings, with a half-smile, pound the football in frustration with an expression that says "Man, I ALMOST broke that one..." I mean, almost every time. He's not out there dancing or making an ass out of himself. He's thinking about what he could have done better. It's rare for a modern player, and it's one of the biggest reasons Jennings has become one of my favorite players on this Packers team.
(Now having said all this - watch him thump his chest after a big play on Sunday night...)
