Maurice Jones-Drew is having one of the best seasons of his career. He is carrying the team on his back and is acting like the leader we thought he was going to be. With all this said, I am also glad about the development of Jennings in the past 2 games. He is doing exactly what we drafted him to do: compliment MJD. In the past 2 games Jennings has
@NYG: 7 carries, 53yds, 1TD
@TEN: 10 carries, 44yds, 1 TD
On track for 263yds and 3TD for the season.
Maybe i'm just partial to Jennings since i went to college with him, but i feel like the Jags offense isn't deflated anymore when MJD comes out and another RB comes in. Rashad knew he wasn't going to beat out MJD and only wanted to do his best for the team. The success of Jennings is allowing MJD to come out a few more plays and take some breathers, that he desperately needed at times last year.Not bad for a 7th round compensatory pick. If the Jags continue to succeed and make the playoffs, we will more than likely enter in with one of the best rushing units.
Best of luck MJD and Jennings! and Go Jags!
