Greg Jennings

I just don't think the Packers can afford to offer him anything close that the Vikes can...maybe I'm wrong. IMO, it's all a smokescreen coming from GB.

They still have to pay Rodgers and Mathews next year and they already have 3 above average receivers on board...who'll they'll have to pay shortly as well.

The Pack needs to worry more about protecting Rodgers and getting better on defense...

Free agent Greg Jennings is dining with Vikings brass on Thursday evening, including coach Leslie Frazier and GM Rick Spielman.

Even Jared Allen is in attendance as the Vikings "clearly (try) to make a strong impression," according to reporter Tom Pelissero. In other words, it's more than a tire kicking as the Vikes try to sell the market's top remaining wideout on Minnesota. A deal isn't expected Thursday night. Pelissero spoke with an NFL executive who "could see" Jennings bringing home a two- or three-year deal worth between $7-$8 million annually.

But if you were Jennings, who would you rather be throwing you the ball, Rodgers, or Ponder?

Amen...I dont want him to leave GB. At this stage in his career...why leave to play with a guy who can't throw? Well, MN did pick up Matt Cassel.....a guy who is better than Ponder IMO.

I read from a questionable source the Vikings are offering 3yr, 22 million. Seems about the appropriate number to lure him here. Not sure I would pay more then that though. We will see how it turns out.

I still think he is just using us for leverage though, but we will see.

You are more then likely correct here. But how much money does GB have to pay him??? I would think if GB really wanted him THAT bad they would have already signed him and not let it get to this point. I doubt they will match any vikings offer. Its just a matter of if another team jumps in and offers more

I am kinda wondering if visiting the Vikings would give bad blood between them? But it is just a business right?

HAHAHA, gotta love when the GM and coach bring the DE to dinner to try and get a WR to sign.

Ponder- "Hey guys are you going out for dinner tonight with Greg?"

Owner and Coach- "No, no, you just stay home tonight and don't watch any tv or read any reports."

I think he is doing it to get his price up too. Jackson did it by visiting with GB to get his $$ number up when in reality wanted to go to Atlanta to begin with. From what I heard was GB offered him 10 mil, not sure if it was 1yr or 3. But that offer has been whipped off the table since free agency hit. I wouldnt pay anymore than what the vikings are so called offering him.

Not much of an update

Quote:
ESPN's John Clayton reports "things are going well" for the Vikings with their Greg Jennings visit, but that Green Bay remains in the mix to re-sign him.

Clayton's reports often consist of gut feelings these days, but it sounds like Jennings' dinner with top Vikings officials went well. The sides are expected to exchange numbers on Friday. If their bids are close to equal, it's hard to see Jennings leaving the Pack for the Vikes.

I'd have liked to have seen Fred Smoot, Moss and Mount McKinnie take Jennings under their wing back in the day lol. They wouldn't have been grazin steaks, they would've entered the back door to Sheiks. I think Jared Allen's cowboy hat and duds were the clincher last night, those born in Kalamazoo Michigan like Jennings love to ride rope and clean calf pens. He probably tried to line up Greg a turkey hunt here in a month.

Oh yes and Ponder, when is his wife due ? If that was a falacy then he should be way too busy to hook up with Jennings and Greg could respect that, Jennings text would read........"don't blame u bro".

Regarding Allen, and why he probably sat in on the meeting. Allen is a comedian, he is fun to be around, and is interesting to talk to. Allen gets out and does stuff in the public, without the media involved, he tries to be a regular person, and stay low key, and will do positive things without it having to be on tv, or in the papers. He will talk to you like you are a friend, and not act like he is better then you, like a lot of "pro players" do. This of course is just my opinion, on why he sat in with the talks.

From what I have heard/read.....if Green Bay brings back Jennings they are going to have to get rid of Finley or try to get him to sign for a pay cut. How do you think that will go over?

IF Green Bay offered Jennings $10M he never would have came to Mpls for a steak. wink

Finley is an silly-me if he doesn't take a paycut. Look at the market for Jennings, not good. Finely is supposed to make 8.25mil this year, not going to even come close to that anywhere else. I'd rather have a sure handed jennings for 2-3 more years and pay him 6-7mil yr than a ball dropping diva like Finley. He's been a headcase since day one and his share of injuries. He cant run block at all and blames his drops on Rodgers for "no chemistry". The guy single handly lost the packers 2 or 3 games because of the drops.

One of the worst signings in recent years by the Pack... Finnley needs to go away! He has already publicly stated he will NOT accept a pay cut or restructure his contract.

Good Luck!

I think the Packers are paying very close attention to the mass departure of the Baltimore Ravens "key" players this year after signing Flacco to that huge contract.

Rodgers is up next....

Finely at $8 million would be one of the worst contracts in the NFL. He likely had more drops than receptions last season. He also had the most annoying first down celebration in the league. I realize him making a catch is a rare event and he probably thought it worthy of celebration but it just makes him look like a tool considering all of the plays he "should" have made.

I'm sure GB is trying to plan a head a little for the contract that Rodgers is certainly going to command. It doesn't look like Baltimore planned ahead as much as they should have and now they are losing guys right and left. Not sure how Baltimore is going to be able to compete next year, they may not even make the playoffs if they can't patch the holes being left behind. It wasn't like they were lights out last year during the regular season.

All this darn Baltimore talk lol, 2 championships 1 with Dilfer at the helm and a rocket or was it missile Ismail ring fitting ceremony and a Brian Billick and a Mount McKinnie and a Matt Birk and can we just do a fake ceremony for the vikes ? Back to G. Jennings, just sign him so maybe he can share what he's learned to Ponder via Rodgers.

UMMM its strictly about money at this point in Jennings career and rightfully so.

And I know this isn't exactly breaking news but the Packers have no worries at all at the WR position and Jennings won't be missed much to be truthfull.

      I do mark my hole with a stick like spears do.

      Variable conditions seems to be the trend this season. This past weekend we had yet another snow storm which dumped approximately 10-12 inches in the Remer, Longville, Outing, and Walker area. Travel has been best still with sleds or track machines. Colder temps the past few weeks have firmed things up on some bodies of water which were once heavy laden with slush, however there are still several lakes that unfortunately we would not advise to travel on until things improve, and with the "January thaw" approaching that might be a while. If you are planning on traveling to the area, call the area resorts or bait shops to get current conditions prior. This past weekend was the Winter Inland Trout Opener. Stories of success were across the board. As some people had great success, others struggled. We ourselves definitely had noticed more lookers than takers on the Vexilar, but managed to get a few topside. Fighting the cold front that hit mid Saturday morning, being on the right body of water, and having the right presentation all factored in. Lake Trout: Lakers are hitting tipped tubes and spoons in 35'-70' of water. Look to the inside turns, points, and shelves. And the best advice I can give any fisherman targeting trout is STAY MOBILE. Keep moving until you get one on the graph, never spending more than 5-10 minutes in an inactive hole. And not only should you stay on the move, but keep that lure moving consistently, working the entire water column. Stream Trout: Try searching around 4'-9' of water on the stocked trout lakes. Small spoons like the Clam Speed Spoon tipped with a Maki Plastic or waxie have produced the best. Panfish: Hit the shallow weedlines for those big Gills, and drill out over the deep basins in 22'-35' feet of water to catch the Crappies. Tungsten jigs tipped with waxies have worked well. Again, the key to success is staying mobile. Walleye: Still can be found on the shoreline points anywhere from 11'-26' feet of water and on the sunken humps. Jigging using spoons tipped with a minnow head have been best when they have been aggressive. If your noticing them coming in yet seemingly shy of the jig, slow down your movement, and try a simpler presentation. Toss down a set-line with a plain hook tipped with a medium Shiner or small Sucker Minnow. Alice Wiese Wheezy Outdoors 218-275-7525 [email protected]

      Good tip on the sight fishing trout option Nick 👍
    • IceHawk
      I fish walleyes a bunch that's why I opted for the 8 inch K drill. But like we all know its not a true 8 😉 I know a lot of guys have 6 inch bits but most of them really only fish panfish from what I've seen.  Yes you can slip a decent eye through a 6 inch hole and many do with there accidental catches of them . But you start getting fish in the 24 plus range fairly often and the larger hole is definitely nicer to turn the head to get her to come up the hole. Its all a preference thing but personally if I'm targeting eyes I will go no less than 8 . And if you start chaseing greenbacks in Winninpeg  a 10 is even a better choice for there. Yes you can cut multiple  holes side by side with a 6 and this is another option if you rarely fish walleyes  with consistency.

      I'm not sure how the ice road is but I had -18 at my place near Ely last night. Tonight it should be right around 0 with a high tomorrow at 20. Hopefully that will help you out.     
    • Wanderer
      I won’t hold you to that! 😂  Thanks for the “offer”.   The hunt is fun too, I really don’t mind but a guy only has so much time.
    • monstermoose78
      I have not had an issue, but look at the 7 inch lazer hand auger. For trout I cut 4 -6inch holes so I can sight fish. I should add I use a 6 inch bit. 
    • Wanderer
      I’ve been able to get mid 20 inch pike up a 6 inch hole a few times but the 8 will help you turn the head easier, especially when the line is wrapped around the back side of the mandible.   Honestly my plan is to continue running the 6 inch but when I think I’m going to pike or walleye fish, the 8 will be with too.  I’ll used that after I dial in with the 6.   I’ll that I’ve over lapped 6’s in a pinch to get a bigger hole too.  I just wouldn’t do it for more than 1 tip up if I had an 8 handy.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      For those who run the drill rigs ( like myself) do you feel the 6” bit is big enough for walleye and pike fishing as well? Saves a lot of wear and battery life with the 6” than throwing the 8” on. What I’ve heard is most cases the 6” will be fine unless you hook into a lifetime fish.
