Dear Greg Jennings: Don’t be swayed by the dark side

It’s moving toward the 10 p.m. hour on a night we’ve been told that midnight would be the threshold for Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings.

You see, it’s been publicly broadcast across these Internet digits that if Jennings isn’t signed by another team before midnight, that he would consider re-signing with the team that drafted him and helped him win a Super Bowl ring.

What we’re talking about here, Mr. Jennings, is right from wrong, good from evil, white from black, the light side from the dark side. We all know you’re struggling with the decision – we know you have a bank-breaking offer from the Minnesota Vikings. You’ve heard about a guy by the name of Brett Favre? He did it, he went over to the dark side – see how it turned out for him?

Do you want to be booed every time you return to Lambeau Field? Do you want to play on a team with a quarterback who struggles finding receivers in the correct time zone? Do you want to leave a team that has the best quarterback, the best set of receivers and is poised, with a few additions, to compete for another Super Bowl?

It’s not always about money, Mr. Jennings. You’ve already made millions, you will make millions more – more money than 99.999 percent of those who cheer you. It’s more than they will make in a hundred lifetimes. They know you are a Christian man, a man who speaks about being great every day. We strive to be like you … and we want to be able to continue to emulate you for years to come.

We can all do that if you do what Donald Driver did for so many years … he did it because he loved it, because he loved and appreciated those who cheered for him.

See how it all turned out for him?

We would love to see you continue to succeed in Green Bay … not in Minnesota … or any other NFL city to which you may be thinking about moving.

Stay with us, Mr. Jennings and provide us with what we all deserve – success and greatness.
