Remembering the curious saga of former Packers receiver Greg Jennings

Jennings, Super Bowl, Packers

Jennings went from receiver No. 1 to Public Enemy No. 1 in Green Bay, and it virtually happened overnight. Here’s a look back at how we got there.

 

 

 

Former Green Bay Packer Greg Jennings is among the best wide receivers to ever don the green and gold – you don’t have much ground to stand on if you argue otherwise.

Jennings ranks No. 5 all time in receiving touchdowns for the Packers, and has played in significantly fewer games than everyone ahead of him on the list. Only Don Hutson and Sterling Sharpe averaged more touchdowns-per-game than Jennings.

Jennings also ranks No. 7 all time in receptions and receiving yards with the Packers, and was pacing to be one of the most productive wide outs the organization had ever seen.

A fan favorite – Jennings seemingly embodied a small town, hardworking mentality. He played college ball at a mid-major university (Western Michigan), is the father of four, and acted humbled to be in the NFL. He always wore a big smile and had a knack for coming up with big, crunch-time catches.

Like this for example…

Brett Favre hits Greg Jennings on the first play from scrimmage in overtime.

And this…

OK, last one…

Aaron Rodgers converts 3rd-and-10 to Jennings to help secure 31-25 victory in SB XLV.

From The Benches: Holiday Lows

From the Benches Podcast - Packers Talk Radio Network

After another prime time Packer game threw off their schedule, Ross and Ryan are back to talk about the Pack just in time for Thursday night’s tilt against the Lions in Detroit. They start with what went wrong against the Bears on Thanksgiving before diving deeper. They yet again discuss the solid play of the defense and give some thoughts on how to further improve that side of the ball. Then it’s on to the bad. What is wrong with the quarterback? Eddie Lacy looks more like himself but has he developed ball security issues? What would you do to fix the offense? Why haven’t the Packers been good at Lambeau? Is Davante Adams any good? There are plenty of questions surrounding the Packers and the guys try to find some answers. Then it’s time for Detroit. Ross and Ryan preview the game and give their predictions.

Packers Therapy #266: Bears Get High Score, Packers Puke on Thanksgiving

Packers Therapy Podcast

Chris and Dave needed a few days to digest what happened at Lambeau Field last Thursday. They’ve stuffed down their anger, replacing it with sadness. But that doesn’t keep the boys from carving up the carcass of the game, reheating what’s leftover and serving it to the dozens of shut-ins who have 90 minutes to kill.

——————-

Posting its first show in 2005, Packers Therapy is the longest-running Packers podcast on the Internet. Hosts Chris and Dave began the show as a way of capturing the spirited chats the two co-workers had about the team around the office. The two have no pretense about being experts: they are just two opinionated shareholders who love the team, follow it closely, but don’t always see the Packers fortunes eye to eye.

The guys encourage comments and questions via their Twitter feed @PackersTherapy and read and respond to as many as they can during each show. Or you can sent them an email to packerstherapy at packerstalknetwork.com
