Obviously being a Packer fan I would take Jennings, but in all seriousness, you have to look at both players from an all around standpoint.
Jennings is the more precise route runner (other than the first play of OT yesterday), but Boldin will go up and win more jump balls. Jennings has deceptive speed, while Boldin is deceptively fast as well, he doesnt utilize his speed the same way Jennings does.
Boldin is more of a big play receiver wrapped up in a possession type attitude. I love both players, but clearly Jennings has been much more healthy in his time in the league.
I think the slight edge goes to Boldin, but I would take Jennings over him just for the simple fact of what some people have said before: He is humble, and healthy.
To those that say its not even close either way, arent approaching the subject from an objective standpoint.
If I facepalmed any harder I would have cracked my own skull.
I'd take Boldin over Jennings 3 years ago. Today I take Jennings, He's younger, healthier, humble and still got his best years ahead of him.
Greg Jennings. Love what he does, and i love his attitude toward the game. He's worth every penny the Packers gave him.

Jennings has to many games where he simply does not show up, has 4 catches for 45 yards or something, or even 2 catches for 100 yards which in my eyes is not an elite WR...
Boldin is the guy that if he dresses for battle, you are damn glad the guy is on your side, he is a freaking warrior, and football is war.
I would feel good about future with Rodgers if I were you...and consider yourselves lucky.
How many teams search for a franchise QB forever after losing one.
Namath...haha (30+ years)?
*disclaimer - i'm not saying the only thing jennings can do is go deep so don't freak out.
If you could guarantee me a healthy Boldin him hands down. He is one of the best recievers in the league when hes not hurt but he is awlays hurt.
Going with Greg Jennings. I really like how he sprouted on the scene and became an awesome WR real quick. Boldin has to, but has attitude problems and injury history.
