Packers’ James Jones hates the helmet-to-helmet rule that protects receivers

Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones was on the NFL Network and admitted that he hates the helmet-to-helmet rule that the league instituted to protect defenseless receivers.

“I think the helmet-to-helmet rule, where defenders have to hit at a certain target, I think they need to eliminate that,” Jones said, per ProFootballTalk.com. “I’d rather get hit in the helmet and shoulder than have a defender take my knees out.”

Jones was then asked if he thinks he needs the extra protection.

“That’s what my helmet is for,” Jones replied.

I wonder if Jones will feel the same way in 15 years when he can’t remember where he put his car keys.

Rodgers spoke with the Green Bay Press-Gazette from the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am about the team’s personnel direction and his admiration for the Baltimore Ravens and in particular their quarterback Joe Flacco. Rodgers stated that he has no plans to ever play in another city. “I’ve had eight great years there, the last five as a starter,” Rodgers said. “Hopefully I can give them another eight plus years of playing at a high level.” “We’ll see what happens with [my next contract], I’m not stressing about it,” Rodgers said. “I think the Packers would like me to be around for a few more years and I’d love to finish my career there.” One of his primary targets Greg Jennings has vocally stated and made moves that suggest that he is not going to be a Packer moving forward. Rodgers said that he wants Jennings to get a new deal done to stay in Green Bay. “We’d love to have Greg back, he’s been a great player for us for a long time,” Rodgers said. “I’ve been fortunate to play seven years with him so hopefully we can find a way to get a deal done because he’s a great player.” Rodgers also commented the status of his tight end Jermichael Finley. “He’s under contract,” Rodgers said, “so far as I know he’s going to be a Packer.I haven’t heard anything (otherwise).”

Funny or uncomfortible!?

Favre_celebrates_touchdown_098e Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers reunited on a public stage for the first time since Favre retired following the 2010 NFL season.  The relationship between the two was an interesting one. Rodgers was selected in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers and expected to eventually replace an aging Favre. He sat on the bench for three seasons and finally thought he would get to start in 2008 after Favre retired. Favre unretired, causing an extraordinarily difficult situation for the Packers, who chose to move forward with Rodgers and trade their former quarterback to the New York Jets.  Favre and Rodgers squared off after Favre retired/unretired again and went to the rival Minnesota Vikings for two seasons. Though Favre initially got the best of Green Bay going 2-0 against them in 2009, Rodgers got him back by beating the Vikings twice in 2010.    The two former MVP quarterbacks were paired together to present the 2012 NFL Comeback Player of the Year award at the “NFL Honors” show on Saturday in New Orleans. They went through a scripted routine that included some jokes about Favre coming back from retirement. They patted each other on the back, shared a handshake, and then things got awkward when they couldn’t decide if they should go in for the bro hug to complement the shake. We don’t know if the awkward shake/hug was part of the script or not, but it sure was interesting to watch, especially after Rodgers said, “that was awkward.”They then presented the award to Peyton Manning, who predicted he would one day be in a similar situation presenting an award alongside Andrew Luck, who replaced him as the Indianapolis Colts’ quarterback. As far as the handshake/hug goes, I tend to think it was intentionally awkward. Why?

Greg Jennings’ house for sale. VIEW GALLERY »

<!- END SINGLE BAR –>

GREEN BAY, Wis. – If there was any remaining doubt whether two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Greg Jennings is going to be back with the Packers next season, it may have been erased Monday.   Jennings’ 4,788 square-foot home in De Pere, Wis. — located 10 minutes from Lambeau Field — was put up for sale with an asking price of $525,000.   The listing is currently being featured on Realtor.com in a blog from the company’s staff writer, Neal J. Leitereg.   The house features five bedrooms and five bathrooms on a 0.37-acre lot.   Jennings was drafted by the Packers in the second round in 2006. He’s played all seven of his NFL seasons in Green Bay but is now an unrestricted free agent.   As Jennings cleaned out his locker following the Packers’ divisional-round playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers, the 29-year-old seemed ready to move on to another team.   “I’m going to play football,” Jennings said on Jan. 13. “I’m going to train hard this offseason and be prepared to play football next year. That’s all I can control and that’s what I’ll do. That’s what I’m best at, and I’m excited for that.   “They’re going to do what’s best for the Packers and the organization. And as the other half of the businessman sitting down at that table, I have to do what’s best for myself and my family.”   Jennings also didn’t seem too heartbroken if he had just played his final game with Green Bay.   “I don’t know if there is a difficult part,” Jennings said about the possibility of leaving the Packers. “Like I said, I’m excited for the future. Football is going to be football. I’m excited for that.”   In Jennings’ career, he has 425 catches for 6,537 yards and 53 touchdowns. He is coming off the worst season of his career, however, playing in only eight games due to injury and finishing with just 36 receptions for 366 yards and four touchdowns.  

Will Jennings Be Back!?

, Greg Jennings of the Green Bay Packers,  only played in a total of eight games during the 2012 season but there sure seems to be a ton of hype surrounding the potential free agent.

In case you have not seen his commercials, Jennings is currently pimping out Old Spice and the NFL’s own ticket exchange website through television, but most importantly, he’s pimping his own brand out.

That last fact is very important because Jennings will be a free agent at the end of this season and needs the rest of the world to know him because he will not be playing in Green Bay next year. With the depth that the Packers’ have at wide receiver, it doesn’t make sense for them to pay Jennings the money he will almost assuredly be asking for. So now is the time for him to market his own name and to make his next contract a hefty one because he didn’t do it on the field.

Jennings finished the year with a career-low 36 receptions, 366 yards and four touchdowns. The question remains, is he an actual No. 1 receiver or is another team going to overpay?

He has been more of a product of the Packers’ system than a superstar wide-out  Over the last couple years, he has even lost his status as the number one receiver on his own team to Jordy Nelson (also a free-agent). With his production on the field lacking, he has to make up for it in other areas, and evidently for him that means getting his face in commercials.

In the advertisements that Jennings is currently in, he has scored two touchdowns. One of those touchdowns even comes with a bed attached to his waist. Unfortunately that will be the last touchdown scored in a Packers jersey
