With all of the talk of the super TE, Jermichael Finley, the breakout year of Jordy Nelson, the early disappearance of James Jones (only to reappear with a 70-yard TD catch) and the exciting rookie Randall Cobb - no one is talking about our biggest playmaker of all, Greg Jennings. I haven't seen any reference to the absolutely amazing run after the catch and dive into the endzone by Jennings in the Atlanta game on APC at all.
This has to be one of the most amazing runs after a catch that we've seen. Watch it again. Jennings catches the ball around the 16-yard line and runs toward the sideline making a 110 degree cut - at full speed -toward the endzone at the 11, then he dives from the 4-yard line, while switching the ball from his left hand to his right hand. And he scores by diving, Jordanesque, 14 feet through the air.
No one else on the Packers could have made such a play, and very few if any other receivers in the league could have done so. Greg Jennings is a unique talent.
Among fans, at least, so much focus has gone to Finley and his talent, which is special in itself, that we seem to have forgotten that the Packers also have one of the most talented WRs in the NFL. Even in all the build up to the Atlanta game, we heard of how the Falcons didn't respect the Packers. But I never read mention of the fact that Roddy White was on ESPN and he told the ESPN football people that Jennings was not a top WR.
I'd like to ask where others rank Jennings among the best WRs in the NFL.
