Oh.....wait.....if by "succeed" you mean they looked so much better when playing for the Vikings because the Vikings as a team are so much lower talent wise that the EX-Packer players LOOKED "great", yeah, i can agree with that!Big Grin


Well, they certainly didn't get several Super Bowl rings with the Packers.

I'd put money down on the Packers winning another, before the Vikings win their first.

Packers | Made offer to Greg Jennings
Sun, 17 Mar 2013 09:05:01 -0700

The Green Bay Packers made an offer to Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings that averaged about $8 million per season, but he decided to accept the Vikings' contract offer of about $9 million per season.


It's all about the money with Jennings face it.



Patriots | Made offer to Greg Jennings
Sun, 17 Mar 2013 09:15:35 -0700

The New England Patriots offered Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings a contract worth around $6 million per season but the talks between the two sides did not go far.

I hate to admit it, but I wouldn't be surprised. I've said this before, the Football Gods hate Minnesota. Hell, the Sports Gods hate Minnesota. '87 and '91 were flukes.

Where's the sources? I was seeing different numbers, but will admit being wrong if your source is accurate.

Oh STFU, God blessed Minnesota with all those awesome lakes; but shows his contempt for the ungrateful people by placing horrible leadership to run the sports teams. Just face it, Minnesota is full of fuckups. Middle Finger Don't blashphemy God, show some accountability, Dumbass!

A league source tells the Boston Globe the Patriots did not make an offer to Greg Jennings before he signed with the Vikings.It's the usual anonymous source tit-for-tat we get this time of year, but both reports come from highly respected reporters. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle, as in the Pats reached out to Jennings but never made a formal offer. Whatever the case is, it's clear the Pats aren't done remaking their receiver corps.Related: PatriotsSource: Greg A. Bedard on Twitter

Big deal, he's about money. He cashed in, no issues with that. He got a ring.

I didn't say 'God'. I said GODS. More specifically, Football/Sports Gods. There's a difference. Don't be ignant (not ignorant.. ignant).

I think the Packer defense will be hurt by this signing more than the Packer offense.

30 is not old for a receiver.

And Jennings has two abilities Packer DBs are going to have difficulty with:
1. He runs very, very precise routes.
2. He has great moves and ability to separate from press coverage. He does not have to play the slot to be effective.

Thompson has the ability to find quality receivers both in the draft and on the street. Even though I think Nelson is overrated, I'm not worried about WR.

Fortunately, the Vikings still have Jake Ponder. Because if they had a real quarterback, Jennings would be a handful for GB's DBs.
None of the above. It wouldn't have been a wasted vote. Obama and Romney -- Those were the wasted votes.

Ponder fires a deep shot downfield to Jennings... He got it! Jennings to the 32 for a 12 yard gain!
