For some fans, it’s been rather frustrating to see all those Greg Jennings Old Spice commercials and not see the star receiver on the football field.
Due to a variety of injuries, it’s been since September 30th since Jennings saw live action for the Green Bay Packers.
With his expected return to the gridiron this weekend against the Minnesota Vikings, Old Spice’s official facebook page issued fantasy football coupons in honor of Jennings.
It may be a bit too late as many fantasy players are starting their league playoffs and if you drafted Jennings there’s a good chance you’re not taking part in the playoffs. He played in only three games and has 12 receptions for 78 yards and one touchdown.
However, Old Spice is trying to make amends by offering a fantasy coupon “good for 17 fantasy touchdowns.” Not sure where they get the number 17 as Jennings has recorded only season-highs of 12 touchdowns in 2007 and 2010.
For his loyal fans and fantasy owners, Jennings conveys the message “I’m ...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The past few games have been filled with cringing, head shaking, curse flinging, eye covering moments for Packers’ fans everywhere. These moments have been the result of the Packers’ starting kicker. Mason Crosby has been in a bit of a sump this season, and suggestions for his replacement have already surfaced. McCarthy and the rest of the team, however, are standing by their...
Fantasy Football News - Green Bay Packer’s wide receiver, Greg Jennings, has been practicing this week and says he feels great heading into week 13. It’s worth noting that Jennings was close to returning against the Giants (and maybe they could have used him) but the Packers made him take one more week off. Now he’s practicing in full and the during the portion of practice...
GREEN BAY, Wis. Green Bay Packers running back Cedric Benson will remain on injured reserve for the rest of this season after undergoing surgery Wednesday.
Benson initially was placed on Green Bay's injured reserve Oct. 10 after a Lisfranc foot injury, but the team designated him for return under the NFL's new rule. Under this rule, Benson had to sit out six weeks of practice...
Not even Randall Cobb could rescue the Packers against the Giants.
I’ve been doing the Packers Stock Report weekly for over two years now. Most of you know how it works.
But just in case, it’s important to know this while you’re reading and agreeing/disagreeing with my selections:
I don’t base the rising/falling/steady selections solely on the most recent game. The most...
Linebacker Clay Matthews will remain sidelined this week with an hamstring injury, but the Green Bay Packers are hoping to get wide receiver Greg Jennings back on the field for Sunday's game against Detroit. Matthews has missed two games in a row with the lingering injury. And while the All-Pro linebacker has made some strides in his rehab work, he hasn't practiced all...
Green Bay Packers running back Cedric Benson will remain on injured reserve for the rest of the season after having surgery on his foot.
The Packers made the announcement Thursday, one day after coach Mike McCarthy says Benson had surgery.
Benson was placed on injured reserve but designated to return on Oct. 10 after spraining his left foot. He was eligible to resume practice,...
Transition from Bryan Bulaga to T.J. Lang at right tackle hasn’t gone smoothly
I, a blogger who knows more about F. Scott Fitzgerald than Larry Fitzgerald, saw this coming months ago. How one of the best GMs in the National Football League didn’t is mind-boggling. From the time the 53-man roster was set in early September, the Packers were playing with fire on the offensive line...
Hot News for WR Greg Jennings
The Packers continue to try to find ways to protect Aaron Rodgers, with mixed results. Enter Jared Allen and the Vikings.
So in an effort to forget about the Packers dismal showing against the Giants, I instead decided to analyze something completely different, namely the first and only pass that one Graham Harrell has thrown in the National Football League. Some of you might know but Harrell was the only backup quarterback in the NFL who had never thrown a pass in a game (though it has to be said...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- For the Minnesota Vikings (6-5) to make the playoffs this season, they'll need to win at least one of their two upcoming games with the division-rival Packers (7-4). The first of those two NFC North showdowns is Sunday at Lambeau Field, with both teams' regular-season schedules concluding four weeks later in Minnesota.
"I want to go ahead and control...

Eden Prairie, Minn. -- For Minnesota quarterback Christian Ponder and Green Bay strong safety Morgan Burnett, the Florida State-Georgia Tech rivalry will extend beyond Saturday night's Atlantic Coast Conference championship game.
Ponder was an FSU quarterback when he first faced Burnett and the Yellow Jackets in 2008. The two will meet again during the FOX America's Game...
