    Greg Jennings is not getting big bucks by the Packers. He may get it elsewhere, but not with them.

    He can blame Cobb for that. What a player. He can play the slot all his life, it doesn’t matter.

      I have to agree. Jennings’ time as a Packer is done after this season…

        Unless he stays hurt or ineffective so long that his price is insanely low.

        But yeah, he’s probably done with GB. Just don’t sign with the Bares or Queens Greg.

        Hmm, you guys think so?

        I’ll admit, I think Jennings is probably done in Green Bay but I can’t help but think he’ll be missed when it counts.

        What happens when the Packers meet a good defense? Doubling Nelson, LB spying Cobb when he’s in the backfield, and good rush on Aaron could neutralize this offense.

        Jennings is a guy you know you can rely on to get open. Finley’s not reliable because of the drops, Driver’s not reliable because of his age, and the young TE’s are unproven at best.

        You need that 4th guy in this offense.

        Thoughts?

        A LB can cover Cobb? I don’t think so… And you left out James Jones…

        I meant when Randall is in the backfield but yes, fair point.

        And James was included in the 3. The three: Nelson, Cobb, Jones.

        Both Jennings and Finley are big variables moving forward.

        This is easy… Let fumble fingers Finley go and keep Jennings..

        Cutting/trading Finley would free up about $8 million dollars (I believe) which would help pad out a year or two for Jennings but I’m not sure it’s enough.

        Jennings getting injured probably gives the Packers some leverage in negotiations but I’m not sure Ted would want to sign him to a deal longer than 2-years.

        Rodgers and Matthews would probably have to take pay cuts of some sort, too.

        We’ll see how it plays out.

    Did you get a feel for M.D.Jannings play. It didn’t look good to my very unprofessional eye.

    Cobb is now a crucial component of the team, he keeps the chains moving.

    Hayward is doing so well, its hard to believe the guy is a rookie. His college coaches said he had freakishly good awareness, looks like they weren’t exaggerating.

      Wasn’t watching him specifically, but Jennings was OK – I’m a little confused why he has played as much as he has the last two weeks. I thought McMillian had earned the job outright.

        I think it’s just because McMillian missed some assignments in the Colts and Saints games. But he is getting more consistent so I’m not real sure what it is now. Guess it’s just extra competition to keep the rookie sharp…

    There can’t be a better QB in the league at taking advantage of the free play than Rodgers, right? I feel like he LOVES that opportunity and almost always takes advantage.

    I’m happy with the win, but I’ll take Kuhn running the ball over Green anytime. To me, Green hesitates too much and is indecisive, the running game stinks without Benson. Not a great day for the “D”, but you gotta love those young D-Backs, if they keep improving Tramon will have to step it up to keep his job!

      Couldn’t disagree more. he hesitates when there is no hole, as does any RB – and there was a lot of that today. Packers OL did not have a great game against a tough RAMS front 7. TJ Lang admitted he had a sub-par game himself.

        Ditto for the d line and backers. We just can’t keep giving up all that yardage on the ground esp. against two subs on their line.Wow no interference calls on Woodson, that hasn’t happened in a long time. However, it’s a win and in the end the team with the hot hand will win it all.

    Brian Billick the color commentator said that the short passes to the running backs is really the Packers running attack. These got good yardage almost every time.

    Also, when No 12 retreats into the backfield and then hands off to Benson or Green, our line must hold their blocks a long time. If you have a stellar running back who is shifty, speedy and can change direction and hit holes that’s ok. We don’t have those. Hand the ball off quickly like that 8 yard run/dive that Kuhn had.

    I’m glad Mike Neal returned too.

    O-line got man-handled. Bad. You just cannot blame our rb’s, no matter who it is, when the o-line is this bad.
