Packers wide receiver Ruvell Martin says the most resounding block of his three-year career came in the Seattle playoff game last January. On a reception to James Jones, Martin broke off his route, latched on to to cornerback Kelly Jennings and pancaked him five yards out of bounds among the photographers.

After that game, Martin said Marcus Trufant came up to him and told him he blocked well enough to be a starting fullback.

    Since then, Jennings has totally sworn off getting that close to another opposing receiver ever again.

  2. This post is out of left field. Did you have a flashback Frank? Doing drugs at a young age can cause that.

    Man…the board’s pretty loose. I like that :)

    As for flashbacks, I was told many decades ago that dropping acid would cause them. Now I want to know, where are they??? :)~

    GO HAWKS!!!

    I read through my comprehensive NFL notes on Fridays to work on my Sunday stuff, and occasionally something Seahawks-related pops up. Just thought I’d share.

  5. Why though would you bring up some stuff when you know this guy is going thru some confidence issues?

  6. lol. Jennings doesn’t read this site.

  7. My 10 year old niece could pancake block Kelly Jennings 5 yards outta bounds, give me a break Mr. Martin. And I know Marcus has seen this guy without his pads on, how can he be impressed by that? The guy weighs 160lbs soaking wet, regardless what the press guide says.
