Packers WR Greg Jennings questions the Detroit Lions.
Packers WR Greg Jennings fired off the first shots in the battle for the NFC North yesterday.
Jennings said what was on his mind in regards to the Lions when when he appeared on the NFL Network.
The Detroit Lions have been creeping up the division’s status ladder over the past three years having made key draft choices, trades and a couple of nice free agent signings.
As they move forward, Jennings is calling out their ability to act accordingly after they have succumbed to a series of off-season arrests and other acts that have cast a negative light on them.
“Can they maintain their composure, both on the field and off the field?” Jennings asked. “They’re a very talented team, but they have struggles on the field containing their composure, and definitely, the things we’ve heard of, them being in the media with off-the-field problems and off-the-field issues. Can they maintain their composure? Can they be a professional ball club for 16, 17, 18 solid weeks throughout the regular season?”
In truth these are all great questions and points but coming from the team that you plan on taking the division crown from, it’s got to sting a little bit.
Make note of it as these words will come up again later on down-the-road when they are cited as bulletin-board material for a upcoming contest.
The unfortunate part is that the Lions’ true weak spot is their secondary, so there really isn’t anybody that can step to Jennings during their games and punish him for the things that he just said.
Last I checked, Chris Houston is hardly what you would call an enforcer.
