Wow! The kids in elementary school (in the insurance ad) aren’t as hard on Aaron Rodgers as the sister of Greg Jennings. No discount double check applicable to Valyncia Jennings. Despite the fact that her brother was targeted 12 times and had 120 yards receiving in the Green Bay Packers loss to the Minnesota Vikings, she was still less than satisfied.
She’s an example of how live tweeting a game can be stupid, and dangerous.

“Why was that ball under thrown like that, he was wide open make the throw for the receiver!!! Geeez!!”
“My God Aaron Rodgers holds the ball forever! GJ was wide open 5x for that touchdown! Goodness he acts like he doesn’t want to throw to him????”
“GJ is the only receiver that has to jump in the air with both hands up to get the ????!!! It’s ridiculous I pray he departs GB ASAP!”
“Aaron Rodgers smh! Had him in the slot wide open no one even covered him! Where is Peyton Manning when u need him! This is utterly pathetic”
“It is so obvi

In September, as the 2012 NFL season was just beginning, Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings knew this could be his last season as a member of the Green Bay Packers. As the season went on and players like James Jones and Randall Cobb began to emerge as legitimate threats to Jennings, it seemed likely that Jennings would not be returning to Green Bay. In fact, Jennings again admitted...

Five question-and-answer highlights:
1. Does playoff experience help?

Dismissing an utterly brilliant performance in a 37-34 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, legendary Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was criticized by the asinine sister of two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Greg Jennings, Valyncia. As a two-time … Continue reading →
Going into the Wild Card Weekend of the NFL Playoffs we’ve done a Top 10 ranking for the QB, RB, WR, and TE positions. Obviously, the player pools are greatly reduced and that is reflected in the rankings. If you’re still involved in any of the various playoff format fantasy leagues/challenges, then these are the [...]The post Aaron Rodgers tops the list for Wild Card Weekend...
Packers wideout Greg Jennings had 120 yards and two touchdowns on eight catches Sunday against the Vikings, his first 100-yard game of the season.Fantasy Spin:Jennings missed eight games this season but caught three touchdowns over the final two games.

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers weren't satisfied with their NFC North title. They went all out for a better seed, hoping for a one-week break.
Adrian Peterson didn't let them catch their breath. Minnesota's relentless runner will be coming right back at them next week.
Peterson finished 9 yards short of breaking Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record...
Green Bay receiver James Jones led the NFL with 14 touchdown receptions this season.Fantasy Spin:The 14 TDs are a career-high for Jones, who racked up 784 yards on 64 catches in 2012 (also career-highs). He and Randall Cobb both saw increased targets this season while Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson were dealing with injuries. Jones has now scored at least five touchdowns in each...

I am told by team sources the Dolphins have every intention of making an impact in free agency if the opportunity is there. But I am also told the Dolphins will be careful not to overvalue players who aren’t truly stars.
The Dolphins promise they will...
The Packers wanted to be the NFC's No. 2 seed in the playoffs and earn a first-round bye. Instead, Green Bay's loss Sunday in Minnesota not only forces the Packers to play next weekend, it also set up a rematch with the Vikings.

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that the sources have informed him that the Dolphins are prepared to make “an impact in free agency.“
Salguero cautions that Miami ”will be careful not to overvalue players who aren’t truly stars.“
The Dolphins could have as much as $46.8 million in salary-cap space at their disposal in the coming months, so it makes sense...
Green Bay Packers (11-4) at Minnesota Vikings (9-6)
There are many reasons to like the Vikings here. They’ve played great football at home, going 6-1 with wins over San Francisco and Chicago, as opposed to 3-4 on the road. They played the Packers tight a few weeks back and that was in Green Bay. They’re also playing very good football right now, winning 3 in a row since that...
