Greg Jennings achieved much in his years in Green Bay, but he strives to help the team more than himself.

I sure am glad the vikings are paying Greg Jennings 9 million dollars a year. Now that Ponder has a high priced receiver to throw to he has performed much better than last year. With his level of performance the vikings should have Ponder as a starter for the next 10 years.

I do believe Jennings' name has been called a couple times - by the TV announcers - because he was wide open and, of course, Ponder didn't see him.

I'm happy we have Jennings. I like his attitude and his passion for the game. It is sad he has to deal with Ponder... I could say the same for Kyle R. Cassel is not the be all but I expect him to make a 3rd down throw 5 yards and I expect he'll see someone who is open. I am completely fine with the Jennings signing.

Superstar QB Brett Favre is looking again to be on a NFL team! Why not get him..... again. He is reported to be in better shape now then he was when he was in his prime at Greenbay!

Ponder's accuracy has been orrible. Excuse me. I just had a British moment. Anyway, his horrible accuracy will keep him from reaching any respectable level of QB competence unless he can improve that. The prospects for that improvement happening are bleak. Aside from that it might be important to mention that Aaron Rodgers and his Green Bay team are currently 1-2 in the standings and oh yes, defense does matter. Green Bay and Minnesota are currently giving up the most points in their division. That speaks a lot for their records also.

He is probably wishing he signed with Cleveland so he could have played this season with Hoyer who is twice as good as Ponder!

Bet he misses winning and catching a lot of passes. He made his choice.

Greg Jennings was a great FA signing by the Vikings knowing they were going to use a high draft pick on the WR position. I cannot think of anyone I would want mentoring our young WR's than Greg Jennings. What a fantastic attitude he appears to have. If they are bad enough this year he will have Teddy Bridgewater throwing to him next year. Skol Vikings!

Last year the excuse for Ponder's poor play was no receivers. Jennings, a $9 million receiver and the addition of Patterson puts the blame for the pathetic record and passing game clearly on Ponder.
