ANALYSIS

Player Analysis: Jennings enters the NFL with a chip on his shoulder. Of a higher caliber than his school of Western Michigan, he had a series of bad luck in the college recruiting process. However he performed well enough to earn a spot on the Packers roster. He'll contribute as a punt and kick returner, and is making progress as a receiver in practices.

Fantasy Football Impact: Jennings is looking like a draft day steal as he will most likely lock down the no. 3 receiver spot, while pushing for the no. 2 spot.

Receivers receive first aid - 12/12/2006

With their top three pass-catchers present and ailing, the Green Bay Packers could have held a wide receiver position meeting inside the visitors training room of Monster Park at halftime of Sunday's 30-19 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Donald Driver (shoulder), Greg Jennings (ankle) and Ruvell Martin (chest) all suffered injuries during the first half - in Jennings' case, it was an aggravation of his previously sprained right ankle - and all received treatment. As a result, all three will need to be monitored in practice this week in preparation for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field. Fortunately for the Packers, all three were able to play through their pain. "It was a (possibility) of maybe losing all three of those guys," Packers coach Mike McCarthy revealed Monday. "So I think it speaks volumes of all three of those guys, because they had significant injuries." While Driver's shoulder injury likely will keep him out of practice Wednesday but not the game, and Jennings' ankle has been a nuisance since he first injured it Oct. 22 at Miami, Martin's bruised chest was the most serious of the three. Martin did not return home on the team charter after the game; instead, he was kept overnight in San Francisco and was to be re-examined when he returned to Green Bay. "It's just precautionary with the chest bruise," McCarthy said. "I'm just playing it safe." With his three top receivers banged up, McCarthy was forced to play Carlyle Holiday, who was claimed on waivers from Arizona last Tuesday and arrived at Wednesday's practice without having attended a single meeting. "He was pressed into play more probably than we anticipated," McCarthy said. Asked if Holiday could play more against the Lions if need be, McCarthy said, "I may have no choice. But yes. He'll probably get potentially more opportunities in the next two games."

 

Driver has carried the big-play load - 11/30/2006

Right now, the only hope the Green Bay Packers have of scoring a touchdown from outside the opposition's 5-yard line is if Donald Driver catches a short pass and takes it the distance. It might seem like an exaggeration, but with the Packers' running game stalled, rookie Greg Jennings in a five-game touchdown drought, tight end David Martin on the shelf with a rib injury and tight end Bubba Franks a non-factor, it's a reality. In the last four games - three of them losses - Driver has three of the team's five touchdowns and is the only player to score on what would be considered a big play. In fact, if you go back six games, to the 34-24 victory over Miami, the only touchdown of any significant length other than a Driver catch was Ahman Green's 70-yard run. It's almost as though the Packers are back to being the one-dimensional team they were last year under former coach Mike Sherman when it was Driver or nothing. "I don't feel that way," coach Mike McCarthy said. "I think Greg Jennings has that ability. I think Ahman Green has shown he has that ability. David Martin and really any of our tight ends, particularly schematically. No, I don't feel that way."

 

Collins, Jennings suffer injuries - 11/06/2006

Free safety Nick Collins will undergo further evaluation today as the Green Bay Packers seek to determine the extent of an injury that he suffered Sunday in a 24-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Collins left the game early in third quarter with what initially was described as a bruised lower back. Later, coach Mike McCarthy said the medical staff was going to run tests on Collins' kidneys. The only other injury of consequence was suffered by wide receiver Greg Jennings. He left in the fourth quarter after aggravating an ankle injury that forced him to miss the Arizona game. Cornerback Charles Woodson, who was listed as doubtful with a knee injury until Friday afternoon, went the distance.

 

Rookie Jennings returns to practice - 11/02/2006
Source: Green Bay Press-Gazette

Greg Jennings inched closed to returning to the lineup by taking part in a portion of Wednesday's practice. The Green Bay Packers rookie receiver, who missed Sunday's win over the Arizona Cardinals due to a sprained ankle, participated in most of the early practice individual drills but was held out of the team (11-on-11) periods. Jennings was injured late in the second quarter of the Oct. 22 victory at Miami and was on crutches after the game. He made quick improvement last week and nearly was cleared to play Sunday against Arizona after working out for the coaches and team doctors a few hours before kickoff. "He made a lot of progress last week," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "We're just trying to get over that last hurdle." Jennings was listed as questionable, meaning there is a 50-50 chance he won't play, but that was an upgrade over last week, when he was listed as doubtful. "We're going to see how he feels in the morning," McCarthy said after Wednesday's practice, "and then our goal is try to let him go tomorrow." Even after missing the last 1 games, Jennings ranks second among NFL rookies in receiving yards (378) and second in the NFC in receptions by rookies with 21. Part of the debate about whether to play Jennings is the fear that he could have a setback early in the game that could leave the Packers short-handed at receiver. If they activated Jennings, there's a chance they wouldn't be able to have all five of their receivers on the 45-man, game-day roster. "Friday's practice will be a big indication of which way we go, whether it's four or five receivers," McCarthy said.

 

Jennings' status improves - 10/26/2006

Rookie wide receiver Greg Jennings was off crutches and walking without a noticeable limp, giving the Green Bay Packers some hope he'll be available Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he was hoping Jennings would be able to practice on Friday, if at all this week. Even if Jennings is able to practice, it doesn't mean his sprained ankle would be in good enough condition to allow him to play. The Packers have to think about the long-term effect playing might have on Jennings' injury. On Wednesday, they listed Jennings as doubtful, meaning they estimate there's only a 25% chance he'll play against the Cardinals. "Jennings is a lot better today than we anticipated," McCarthy said. "He's off the crutches. He's going to try to give it a run." Jennings was hurt Sunday late in the first half of the Packers' 34-24 victory over Miami and did not return to the game. The injury got worse Monday, but through regular treatment Jennings reported improvement. He made a brief appearance in the locker room but was escorted out by a public relations official as reporters gathered around his locker seeking comment. If Jennings can't play, the Packers will have two rookies and a first-year player serving as complements to starter Donald Driver. Ruvell Martin, the first-year pro who played a significant amount against Miami after Jennings went down, would probably be the starter.

 

Bodiford claimed from the Lions - 10/24/2006

The Green Bay Packers' receiving corps for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals could include Donald Driver and three guys who a week ago never had caught a pass in an NFL game. The Packers appear likely to be without injured starter Greg Jennings. With Koren Robinson suspended and Robert Ferguson on injured reserve, the Packers likely will start first-year receiver Ruvell Martin and play undrafted rookie Chris Francies as their No. 3 receiver. Their fourth receiver could be Shaun Bodiford, another undrafted rookie who was claimed Monday on waivers from the Detroit Lions and replaced Ferguson on the roster. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Jennings' ankle injury was diagnosed as a sprain, but he either didn't know the severity of it or refused to divulge it, perhaps as a way to keep the Cardinals off guard. Jennings was injured late in the first half of Sunday's 34-24 win at Miami. He caught a pass for a 14-yard gain, then was drilled by Dolphins safety Jason Allen and did not return. Jennings was on crutches after the game, but X-rays were negative. If Jennings can't play, it will mean Martin will go from the No. 4 receiver before the Packers' bye to a starter and Francies will go from the practice squad to the No. 3 receiver in a week. Martin caught two passes for 25 yards against the Dolphins and Francies had one catch for 12 yards. The latter came on a critical third-and-1 play on the Packers' final touchdown drive. "That's where we are right now," McCarthy said of his receivers. "Chris Francies had a big-play opportunity and cashed in on it. Ruvell did an excellent job. Those guys have been with us since Day 1. They've earned their spots on this team, and they will be counted on to play a role." The Packers tried to sign rookie receiver/kick returner Brian Clark off the Denver Broncos' practice squad, but the Broncos promoted him to their active roster. Instead, they took Bodiford, a 5-foot-11, 186-pound rookie from Portland State who played in three games for the Lions before he was released. He made one special teams tackle for the Lions. In the preseason, he also worked as a punt and kickoff returner. It's unlikely a new receiver will be able to contribute much right away. It took Robinson several weeks to become a significant part of the Packers' offense, and Robinson was a former first-round draft pick who had vast experience in the West Coast offense.

 

Injured Ferguson out for the season - 10/24/2006
Source: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

If Robert Ferguson heals well enough and shows no aftereffects of a serious foot injury, the Green Bay Packers want him back next year. Ferguson was put on injured reserve Monday with a Lisfranc injury in his right foot, ending yet another disappointing season for the former second-round draft choice. The injury is to the Lisfranc joint, where the metatarsal bones attach to the rest of the foot. Given his salary cap number will be $2.5 million next season and it's unlikely he'll be a starter, it wouldn't be surprising if the Packers decided to negotiate an injury settlement and let him go. But general manager Ted Thompson said emphatically that he wanted Ferguson back next season. "Absolutely not, no" Thompson said when asked if the Packers were considering an injury settlement. "We want Robert with us. We want him to be a Packer. This doesn't have anything to do with any history he's had in the past and any injury he's had. This is just a bad-luck injury. It's just part of the price you pay in the National Football League." At the end of this season, Ferguson will have missed 36 of a possible 96 games since being selected in 2001, 21 of which were because of injury. He was also inactive for 15 games his rookie year for non-injury reasons. In the four seasons before this one, in which he had started 25 games, he averaged just 27 catches. In training camp, he lost his starting job to rookie Greg Jennings and served as the No. 3 receiver until his injury. He had five catches for 31 yards and a touchdown and was in danger of falling behind Koren Robinson into the No. 4 spot. Nevertheless, Thompson appears to like Ferguson's toughness on special teams, experience in the offensive system and locker room presence. "We want Robert to be a healthy, happy member of this organization," Thompson said.

 

Packers are thin at receiver - 10/19/2006
Source: Green Bay Press-Gazette

The Green Bay Packers have only two available receivers who have ever caught a pass in an NFL game. Much like the running back position a year ago, the depth of the receiving corps has been decimated. Gone are Koren Robinson and Robert Ferguson, the Nos. 3 and 4 receivers, respectively, leaving behind a pair of inexperienced backups, Ruvell Martin and practice-squad call-up Chris Francies. With Robinson lost because of a one-year suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy and Ferguson out indefinitely and perhaps all season with a foot injury, the Packers came out of their bye week scrambling to assemble a cast of receivers for Sunday's game at Miami. Martin, a first-year player who failed in two attempts to make the San Diego Chargers' roster in 2004 and 2005, has played in three of the Packers' first five games but hasn't caught a pass. Francies, a rookie free agent out of UTEP, was promoted Wednesday to the active roster for the first time in his career. It leaves the Packers with only Donald Driver and rookie starter Greg Jennings as proven receivers. Combine that with a running game that ranks 26th of 32 NFL teams, and it could make the Packers even easier to defend. "When you're playing us (now)," Packers quarterback Brett Favre said Wednesday, "You go, 'OK, we shut down Driver and Greg (and) force them to beat us elsewhere, and until they prove they can run the ball and beat us, they have to prove that. Otherwise, we're going to load up on those two guys.' So, it does make it more difficult, but it gives other guys an opportunity to play and show what they can do.

 

Peak performance? - 10/12/2006
Source: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

It took 51 selections to occur before receiver Greg Jennings was picked in the 2006 NFL draft, so it's not surprising that a brilliant start to a rookie season would be widely overlooked nationwide. But such is life when you enter the league with Reggie Bush and Vince Young. Jennings is among one of the top producing rookies through the first five weeks of the season, and his presence has been a bright spot in an otherwise dismal 1-4 start for the Green Bay Packers. Every week since being held to one catch for 5 yards against Chicago in the season opener, Jennings has done something special. Yet you can forget about him being in the running for offensive rookie of the year honors because unless Bush gets hurt or somehow fades into oblivion he'll win the award. And if it's not him, you can bet it will be Young, who became a starter last week and is off to the races. "You know what, I'm glad that that's there because no focus has been shifted over to myself," said the likable Jennings. "The spotlight is on him. I can kind of play underneath that spotlight. That way there's no expectations elsewhere but here in this family and around here. "Other than here, there's nobody talking about Greg Jennings as rookie of the year. There's no add-on pressure." It's premature, of course, to think about post-season honors, but the point is that Jennings has produced about as much as any rookie in the draft thus far and looks to be the real deal. He and New Orleans seventh-round receiver Marques Colston have been the two biggest surprises in the draft, at least where offense is concerned. Among all rookies, Jennings ranks third behind Bush (34) and Colston (23) in receptions with 20, tied for second behind Jacksonville's Maurice Jones-Drew (four) in touchdowns with three, second behind Colston (374) in receiving yards with 364 and second behind Colston (18) in receiving first downs with 13. Among all NFL receivers with a minimum of 18 catches, Jennings ranks tied for third with Indianapolis' Reggie Wayne (18.2) in yards per catch and fifth in the league in yards after the catch with 178, according to STATS.

Fantasy Impact: Jennings should be a solid play all year.

 

Rams hold on to win in Green Bay, 23-20 - 10/08/2006
Source: NFL.com

The St. Louis Rams used to be the most stylish team in the NFL. Now they're winning ugly -- to the tune of a surprising 4-1 start. The Rams staved off a fourth-quarter comeback attempt by Brett Favre and the Packers, walking away with a 23-20 victory at Lambeau Field after a big defensive play in the final minute. "I don't think anyone would have predicted it," Rams quarterback Marc Bulger said. They might be lacking style points, but the Rams have won three straight close games. The Rams made plenty of mistakes, including a few rare slip ups by Bulger. But the Packers couldn't make them pay until it was too late. Favre was relatively quiet for three quarters before rallying the Packers for a fourth-quarter touchdown to rookie Greg Jennings that cut the Rams lead to three with 6:42 remaining. Favre then got the ball back with 2:46 remaining, and drove the Packers to the Rams 11-yard line with 44 seconds left. But Favre was pressured by defensive lineman Jimmy Kennedy, and Leonard Little poked the ball away from Favre. The ball bounced around before landing in the hands of Rams defensive back Jerametrius Butler. Little, who needed three IVs after the game, was prodded to make a play on the sideline by defensive coordinator Jim Haslett earlier in the game. He finally did, but watched as the ball nearly was recovered by Packers offensive lineman Daryn Colledge. What looked like another dose of Favre magic instead became another loss for the Packers (1-4). "This is not a lot of fun," Favre said. "Losing is not a lot of fun. Not that it ever has been, but more so now." Bulger threw for two first-half touchdowns and extended his league-best interception-free streak to 214 attempts -- thanks in large part to Packers cornerback Al Harris. Bulger finished 18 of 28 for 220 yards, as Packers defensive back Charles Woodson and linebacker A.J. Hawk also whiffed on potential interceptions to keep his streak alive. Favre was 22 of 39 for 220 yards and didn't throw an interception either. After the game, he said he would be watching the team's young players to see how they respond to a poor start. The Packers did find one positive in third-string running back Noah Herron, who ran for 106 yards and a touchdown. Starter Ahman Green was inactive for the second straight week for the Packers with sore hamstrings, and second-string back Vernand Morency fumbled twice, losing one, in the Packers' first two series of the game. Notes: McCarthy said Packers offensive lineman Jason Spitz was taken to the hospital for tests after he was kicked in the stomach and left the game in the third quarter. ... Rams kicker Jeff Wilkins had three field goals, all in the second half. ... Rams running back Steven Jackson had 98 yards on 23 carries.

 

Favre carves apart Detroit's defense with barrage of short and safe passes - 09/25/2006

This is what the Green Bay Packers' coaching staff meant when they said they wanted their quarterback to be a game manager. Brett Favre who will go into the Pro Football Hall of Fame some day in part because of the gunslinging, free-wheeling style that led to three NFL MVP awards in the mid-1990s and a Super Bowl title took almost no risks on Sunday against the Detroit Lions, and his team walked out of Ford Field with its first victory of the season. Coincidence? Perhaps not. Favre didn't turn over the ball for the first time this season, settled for check-down pass after check-down pass, and nickel-and-dimed the Lions' defense to death. Oh, there was the spectacular play or two like his improvised, 24-yard completion to Koren Robinson in the third quarter, and his audible that turned into a 75-yard touchdown to Greg Jennings but in large part, Favre accepted the notion that first-year coach Mike McCarthy and offensive coordinator Jeff Jagodzinski want him to play smart, conservative football. "He's doing a great job of managing the game," tight end Bubba Franks said. "They're asking a lot of Brett, and many people don't know that. But he's doing a great job of putting us in the right place and communicating to everybody. The guy still has it. I wouldn't care if he was out there gunslinging, but right now, he's putting us in the best position on every snap."

 

Favre connects with 10 different players - 09/25/2006
Source: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

he Green Bay Packers have someone other than Donald Driver who can catch the ball. It probably seemed like a Motor City mirage for those who witnessed the Green Bay Packers defeat the Detroit Lions on Sunday with an offensive attack that featured 10 different players catching passes from quarterback Brett Favre. But it wasn't. Going into the game, Driver had accounted for roughly a third of the team's receptions and just under 50% of the receiving yardage. No one who had caught more than three passes was averaging better than 11.0 yards per reception except Driver (16.6). But facing the prospect of a 0-3 start, Favre put his trust in players like rookie receiver Greg Jennings, tight ends Bubba Franks and Donald Lee and wide receiver Koren Robinson. It was faith well placed because all four of them made plays that helped the Packers roll up 400 yards of offense in a 31-24 victory.

 

Favre surpasses TD milestone - 09/25/2006

Brett Favre was welcomed to the National Football League's ultra-exclusive 400 club Sunday, but it was in the context of the way he achieved the milestone that mattered most to him. "What can I say? We needed a win a lot more than I needed 400 touchdown passes," Favre said. "That's the icing on the cake." When Favre's medium-range pick-route pass to rookie Greg Jennings broke free for a 75-yard score with 7:03 left in the first quarter, the landmark play achieved two distinctive ends: It was the catalyst for Green Bay's 31-24 victory against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field, the first successful taste this season for the Packers and rookie coach Mike McCarthy, and for the record books the touchdown pass was the 400th in Favre's legendary 16-year career. Only all-time leader Dan Marino, who retired after the 1999 season with 420 touchdown passes, is in the same stratum as Favre. "The good thing is I've been able to do it and be around for a long period of time," said Favre. "It wouldn't be near as special if we'd lost."

 

Favre's three TDs lift Packers over Lions - 09/24/2006

Brett Favre sprinted toward the end zone, signaled touchdown and then pumped his right fist. The 36-year-old quarterback had just become the second player in NFL history to throw 400 career touchdown passes. He added two more scores to lead the Green Bay Packers to a 31-24 win over Detroit for their first victory of the season. With his first TD pass of the game -- a 75-yarder to Greg Jennings -- Favre joined Hall of Famer Dan Marino as the only quarterbacks to reach 400 touchdown passes. Marino has 420. "We needed a win a lot more than I needed 400 touchdown passes," the three-time MVP said. While the Lions (0-3) remained winless under new coach Rod Marinelli, they had their chances in the fourth quarter -- just as they did in the season-opening loss to Seattle. "We were close," Marinelli said. "We have to finish." After Jon Kitna threw behind a wide-open Mike Furrey on third down, Jason Hanson kicked a 40-yard field goal to cut the lead with 5:24 to play. The Lions got the ball back at their 31 a couple of minutes later, but gained just 8 yards before Kitna was sacked on fourth down. Then, the Packers' Ahman Green fumbled at the 32 with 54 seconds left. The Lions got to midfield and Kitna heaved a pass that fell incomplete into a crowded end zone. Notes: The Packers have won 10 of the last 12 games against Detroit. ... The Lions were without two starting DBs -- Kenoy Kennedy (foot) and Fernando Bryant (personal issues). ... Green Bay DT Ryan Pickett (ankle) was injured, but returned. ... Detroit OG Ross Verba, playing in his first game since 2004, left the game with an aggravated hamstring. ... The Lions activated WR Mike Williams for the first time this season, but he didn't play extensively until the end of the game.

Greg Jennings took a leap of faith that he could play college football at Western Michigan and still have a pro career. On Sunday, Jennings -- a rookie wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers -- caught his first NFL touchdown and celebrated with a "Lambeau Leap," jumping into the arms of fans in the front row of the end zone at Lambeau Field. The Packers selected Jennings with the second of two second-round picks in the 2006 draft after he led the nation with 8.91 receptions per game as a senior. Jennings and the Packers (0-2) will visit the Lions (0-2) at Ford Field at 1 p.m. Sunday.

Thus, it was significant that Jennings, the second-round pick who has been the star of training camp, continued to flash big-play ability and show that he could be the relief Driver and the Packers will need. Jennings caught three passes for 115 yards, including an 85-yard touchdown in the second half on a strange catch-and-run in which the ball was deflected at the line of scrimmage but still managed to make it into his arms. But Jennings also caught two passes for 21 yards in the first half against Atlanta's No. 1 defense, including a 16-yard shot from Brett Favre down the middle of the field that helped set up the team's first touchdown. He also went over the middle on third and 5 and caught a first-down pass that kept alive the Packers' second touchdown drive.
