Here is nine minutes of video featuring Minnesota Vikings receiver Greg Jennings justifying his decision to leave behind the quarterbacks he played with in Green Bay in favor of the Vikings' Christian Ponder. When ESPN's Stephen A. Smith noted the drop-off between Brett Favre/Aaron Rodgers to Ponder, Jennings had an interesting response:
"Brett Favre? Receivers around him. Aaron Rodgers? Receivers around him. Christian Ponder? Receivers around him."
Unlike previous interviews, Jennings did mention Rodgers' name. But he also somewhat cryptically said that "you get respect when you give respect" when asked why he apparently thinks more of Favre than Rodgers. The video is worth your time.
The Vikings went 4-for-4 last season on two-point conversion attempts, each coming in the fourth quarter.
The sudden release of Ray McDonald creates more uncertainty for a Chicago Bears defense stuck in transition mode.
