We noted this week that the Packers’ receiving corps is as healthy this week as it’s been since the very start of the season. That has them feeling pretty good about themselves.
“It makes us very dangerous,” Greg Jennings told the Associated Press. “It’s pretty obvious when we have all four guys healthy, the amount of big plays that we can accumulate goes up. Aaron has a lot more options.”
Jennings missed Week 2 and Weeks 5-12 of the regular season, Jordy Nelson missed Week 8 and Weeks 14-16 and Randall Cobb missed Week 17. Only James Jones played all 16 games of the 2012 season. (Veteran Donald Driver missed Weeks 13, 15 and 17, but when Jennings mentions “all four guys,” he’s subtly acknowledging that the 37-year-old Driver doesn’t have a lot left to contribute.)
Nelson said he doesn’t believe there’s another team in the NFL that can spread the ball around among as many different wide receivers as the Packers can when everyone is healthy.
“I don’t think so,” Nelson said. “I don’t think you can go four and five deep like we can.”
Aaron Rodgers will be happy to have all those weapons at his disposal against the Vikings on Saturday night.
