09:57 AM ET 12.24 | The Green Bay Packers couldn't be more confident that wide receiver Greg Jennings will play in the NFC divisional playoff game the weekend of Jan. 14-15 at Lambeau Field. Jennings apparently has made a strong recovery from the sprained medial collateral knee ligament that he suffered 13 days ago against Oakland.

Yes, we need him back, pronto... those other receivers lost a lot of their luster without him in there.

What the Packers need is healthy linemen ...

They're still plenty dangerous without him.

I don't think they are really worried with or without him. Of course that may be their downfall. Not hungry and over confident.

Doesn't matter. Rogers won't get time to pass to whomever is on the field so the Pack is going down. The O line is in taters. Can't win against the best teams with that. Not to mention no running game because the o line can't run block either.

If JF would catch the balls thrown to him, the need for Jennings to return would not be as critical.

Lead the league in dropped passes....defense is pedestrian....troubles on the horizen

Roger that -- the PACK will be watching the 49s game and if it looks like the 49s will go "tango-uniform" you can bet the Packer bench will play the game ... rest the starters and remove the chance of more injuries ...

What the Packers need is a good arse kicking by the Bears. Even though they kept winning, they've gotten a bit complacent lately. A good shellacking by the limping, inept Bears will snap them back to reality damn quick. It'd be tragic if it became one-and-out for the Pack in the playoffs. It's happened before. Just ask the Bears.

That's not going to do them any good if they don't have their offensive linemen healthy.

You idiots are forgetting that the Packers have lost ONE game all season! They will smash the Care Bears tonight and lock up the #1 seed! The Aints and 69'ers aren't winning at Lambeau in January! Get yo' head checked fools!

Yeah... we got your "point" the first time. Just remember that winning at Lambeau in January doesn't automatically give you a Super Bowl title.
