What a great attitude Jennings!! Too many athletes today feel entitled to greatness and adulation because they're a professional football player or some other sport. Jennings sounds like a real team player and a true professional! If the young vikings choose to "hitch their wagon" to Jennings, his philosophy and work ethic, that will bode well for the Vikings future!!! I really look forward to Thusday and kickoff of a new season!! GO VIKINGS!!!!!!!!!!

Greg Jennings is the best possible wide receiver we could have signed in free agency. He's more than a great player; he's a leader--much like Cris Carter was. Keep following your calling, Greg. Don't let anyone get you down. You can be a big part of a Vikings' championship season.

I have loved the Jennings signing since day 1. Although he has been injured last year and is climbing in age, he is still a very talented player that can bring a lot to the table for a team that is on the verge of contending. He has always been a fantastic leader and is a strong, positive presence in the locker room. He will fit in great with the Vike's young team. I expect great things from Greg, the rest of the players, the coaches, the front office, and the fans. SKOL!!!

Vikings have a good thing going here, but we have to see it on the field, CONSISTENTLY. I expect them to dominate the Lions in the Motor City out of the gate, but winning @ CHI in week 2, something Vikings teams RARELY DO, would open my eyes a little wider. Can't wait!

The posts are all positive and upbeat, but each one has a negative reply. Is there a packerbacker trolling the site or just someone who has to be negative. How could a real Viking fan give these posts a thumbs-down? Amazing.

Just a fantastic article, Dan. Great job! A great read and I gotta say, Greg Jennings motivated me! A truly inspiring man who can help cement a winning culture in this up and coming team. What a great signing. Have good health and a successful year. Welcome, Greg. Welcome.

How in the world could the limo not be there for him when he arrived early? That ride should have been at the airport when Jennings flight left Michigan! Hopefully somebody's head rolled over that blunder because that cannot happen to an organization we are giving $500 million to.

Nice work Jennings - on one hand saying how you want your abilities to noticed more but on the other saying it is all about the team. Good riddance, you left the best organization in pro sports and we will bring the Lombardi back home again without you. GO PACK GO!!!

Bold talk from a guy that has spent more time on the trainers table then on the playing field. He got his $47 million now he'll be hurt most of the year. He'll just be going through the motions for the next 5 years.
