How Good Is Greg Jennings?

LeRoy Butler:

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...

Jennings and Rodgers are both going to get paid soon (I hope). Back to my Gonzalez post, we have older guys in key positions (Woodson, Harris, Driver, Clifton, Tauscher) and it will take a few bucks to extend or renegotiate our good young players as well as acquire some help for our vets. I suspect KGB is gone at the end of the year so that will help

That's why I just laugh when people scream about Thompson not spending money: Yes, he does. On his own players. Jennings and Rodgers will be taken care of, I have no doubt.

I'm glad your day gets better by telling me I told you so twice....whatever makes you happy. Nothing makes me happier than Greg Jennings being a stud. You can't blame me for being resistant when the last 2 - supposed #2 WR stars were busts...Ferguson..(had me sold after that Vikings game) and Walker..(still mad I have that Jersey). U r the man and I am sure you will remind me tonight on the podcast. :)

If you checked my Dumbass of the week, there are still those that think Gregorious is nothing.

I laugh at them.

As per the JS article a little while back - Jennings has (likely) been offered an extension and turned it down. He wants to test the free market. Somebody will offer him $10 million a year. Do you think TT will match? Or franchise and trade?

He turned it down last offseason so that he could get to this season and prove himself and probably to see how Rodgers fared. (Can you blame him?) My hunch is he wants to resign with Green Bay and will do so before hitting the market.
