No lack for Pack attack
By AJ Mass
While Packers fans come to grips with the fact that Greg Jennings is following in the footsteps of Brett Favre and taking his talents to North Star country, the fact is that in terms of wide receivers, there's not a lot for the team to worry about going forward.
Jennings only started five games for the team last season, and the trio of Jordy Nelson, James Jones and Randall Cobb combined for 29 touchdowns. Jarrett Boykin can easily step in and add 30-40 receptions as the team's No. 4 option.
As disappointing as it might be to see a long-time favorite join a divisional opponent, the truth is that Aaron Rodgers is not going to fall short of a 4,000-yard passing season because Jennings is no longer taking any Lambeaux Leaps. Green Bay will survive - and flourish.
