M.D. Jennings wants to get rid of his "Fail Mary" label

We all remember last year's stolen win in Seattle, but that doesn't mean M.D. Jennings, the defender who technically caught the ball, wants us to. 

"I won't say (the fans who only know me as the "Fail Mary" guy) don't know football," said Jennings in an interview with the Milwaukee JS, "but they'll say, 'We know you caught that ball, it was a touchdown.' They keep saying it was a touchdown. You know, I just go along with it."

While his frustration is understandable this reputation will never, ever go away. Even if he wins the Defensive player of the Year Award every year for the rest of his career history will still only know him for that one play.
