Minnesota Vikings: Greg Jennings Expects ‘Nothing but Greatness,’ Will Be Sorely Disappointed
The Minnesota Vikings have had an interesting offseason. Starting it off by trading All Pro wideout Percy Harvin away didn’t bode well right away. But, they followed that up with bringing in free agent wide receiver Greg Jennings and all was well in Minnesota.
In an interview with ESPN Wednesday, Jennings talked about his transition to his new team and what he expects out of the Vikings in 2013. Two things that he said stuck out to me in particular.
First, Jennings said that he can see a hunger in the Vikings that apparently wasn’t present with the Green Bay Packers in 2012. What the heck is that supposed to mean? I guess none of us really know what was going on in that locker room last season, but I have a hard time believing there was a lack of hunger.
Second, he said that he expects “nothing but greatness” out of the Vikings in 2013.
I’m sorry, but do you realize what team you are speaking of right now? I mean, yeah, Adrian Peterson is by far the best running back in the NFL and deserves every bit of praise he’s received. But, who’s going to throw you the ball?
Christian Ponder was atrocious last season, and Vikings fans know it. If there are some that don’t believe that, they are living in denial. Bringing in Matt Cassel was a puzzling move, as he wasn’t exactly the best man to compete with Ponder, but he could likely be a better option midway through the season when Ponder shows us all again why he’s not cut out to be an NFL quarterback.
I don’t have a lot more to say about this matter other than the fact his comments made me laugh. When the Vikings are sitting on the couch again next year either because they missed the playoffs or they exited in the first round yet again, remember this: I told you so.
