The end usually creeps up out of nowhere. Rarely do you ever get the chance to offset what has already been set in motion. This is one of the inevitabilities of NFL life. Greg Jennings may experiencing “the end”, one way or another. Lost in the daily fawning over Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay juggernaut is the fact that Pro Bowl wide out Greg Jennings has been unable to finish three of the last four games he has played in dating back to Week 14 of the 2011 season. He exited that contest with a sprained MCL. He would return a few weeks later for the Packers NFC Divisional Round loss to the Giants, a game which he exited early with a rib injury. This past Sunday versus the 49ers, Jennings suffered a groin injury that may keep him out of tonight’s matchup with division rival Chicago Bears. All of this lost time has to be weighing on the minds of the Packers front office. Continue reading
Up until this season, the Green Bay Packers could always count on their defensive backs winning the physical battle against Chicago Bears wide receivers. With the acquisition of the 6’4”, 235lbs Brandon Marshall and 6’3”, 220lbs rookie Alshon Jeffery, Bears QB Jay Cutler is looking forward to the Packers relying heavily on bump and run coverage. Continue reading
Greg Jennings thrust himself onto the scene during his rookie year back in 2006 by catching Brett Favre’s 400th touchdown pass early in the season. One Super Bowl victory and two Pro Bowl appearances later, it’s safe to say that Greg Jennings has become a stalwart presence within the organization. Could that be set to change? With his contract set to expire at the end of this season, Jennings has his future in mind as he approaches what could very well be his final season in green and gold. Continue reading
Well, this one is a surprise.
Earlier today, the Green Bay Packer agreed to terms with free agent running back, Cedric Benson. Surprisingly, Benson remained unsigned despite the fact that he’s racked up three consecutive 1,000 yard seasons. Fantasy players hoping to snatch up Benson this fall for their rosters may want to temper their expectations – although Benson will make a case to start and threaten the reps of incumbent starter James Starks, the Packers run a passing offense and Benson has never been known as a receiving threat out of the backfield. However, this move should help the Packers in the win column.
I certainly get where New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck is coming from. If you’ve watched ESPN over the last few months as they incessantly covered Tebow and the Jets and Peyton’s arrival in Denver, you could easily forget that the Giants won the Super Bowl last season. Add to that Clay Matthews’ blatant disrespect of how things went down in the NFC Divisional Playoffs this past January, and you’ll be able to slowly paint a picture of under-appreciation for the Giants. That has Justin Tuck feeling a little blue. Continue reading
The New York Giants shocked many observers when they strolled into Lambeau Field this past January and laid down a 37-20 butt whooping on the defending Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers. Apparently, Packers defensive end Clay Matthews hasn’t gotten over the loss and refuses to give proper respect the the Boys in Blue. Continue reading
Green Bay Packers quarterback and 2011’s Most Valuable Player Aaron Rodgers has been known to “Put the Belt On” after scoring touchdowns. However, I think we all can agree that the move has become a little stagnant at this point. Never fear, Packers fans. A-Rod may have just come up with new signature move. Continue reading
