We noted recently that Packers receiver Greg Jennings had questioned whether the Lions would be able to keep their composure. Now one Lions player is questioning why Jennings can’t keep his mouth shut.
Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch took to Twitter on Sunday to take issue with Jennings, who said of the Lions, “They’re a very talented team, but they have struggles on the field containing their composure, and definitely, the things we’ve heard of, them being in the media with off-the-field problems and off-the-field issues. Can they maintain their composure? Can they be a professional ball club for 16, 17, 18 solid weeks throughout the regular season?”
Who is Greg Jennings to talk about the Lions? The guy should worry about his own team....—

Jennings does have a basis to talk about the Lions, having seen first hand that the Lions’ inability to keep their composure cost them when the Packers won at Detroit on Thanksgiving. When it comes to maintaining their composure, Jennings has a lot less reason to worry about his own team than Tulloch has to worry about his own team.
