Greg Jennings’ barbs at Aaron Rodgers become a bit more pointed

AP

The border war between the Packers and Vikings gets a little more intriguing than usual this year, with receiver Greg Jennings defecting from Green Bay to Minneapolis.  Now, Jennings is doing his part to make things even more interesting, by poking at a quarterback with a reputation for being sensitive.

Previously, Jennings would toss a random barb that could be laughed off as a joke.  But Jennings didn’t seem to be joking in his most recent comments about Aaron Rodgers.

“A lot of times when you have a guy who creates that spotlight for himself and establishes that and takes a lot of that, it becomes so-and-so and the team,” Jennings tells Dan Wiederer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “It should always be the team. . . .

“For me, I’m such a team person, I’m going to defer to my teammates.  I’m going to defer to the team, to the team, to the team.  And I think when you reach a point where you’re not deferring any longer, it’s no longer really about the team.”

Jennings then reportedly “paused and looked around,” perhaps because he feared Rodgers was lurking in the corner with a sock full of pennies.

“Don’t get me wrong, ‘12’ is a great person,” Jennings said.  “But when you hear all positives, all positives, all positives all the time, it’s hard for you to sit down when one of your teammates says, ‘Man, come on, you’ve got to hold yourself accountable for this.’  It’s hard for someone to see that now because all they’ve heard is I’m doing it the right way, I’m perfect.  In actuality, we all have flaws.”

That seems to mean that Rodgers doesn’t react well when someone tries to tell him that there’s something he’s not doing that he should do, or something he’s doing that he needs to quit doing.  It also suggests that there’s resentment of Rodgers within the Green Bay building, and that Jennings is trying to stir some of it up from afar.

Either way, look for Jennings to keep poking at Rodgers.  The former Packer seems to know how to get under his former quarterback’s skin — and the former Packer apparently thinks it will help his new team beat his old team.

  1. It’s just not very classy. The Packers were more than good to this guy. He’s the one looking bad here.

  2. So essentially Jennings is pissed because he wasn’t given enough (in his mind) credit for the Packer success. Then, in the next breath he says that he’s all about the team.

    Good riddance to bad rubbish. He’ll fit right in with Minnesota.

  3. If you read the quotes in their entirety, they weren’t that bad, but this Viking fan wishes Jennings would cool it. Then again, if Rodgers exacts his revenge against the Vikings like he did against the 49ers (for not drafting him) in the playoffs, maybe it’s not big of a deal.

  4. Jennings has always been jealous of the attention that Rodgers was getting and I don’t think he felt he got enough credit. He just comes across as a whiney cry baby with a bit of T.O. to him here. Let’s see you put up Pro Bowl numbers with Christian Ponder as your QB and then run your mouth.

  5. Jennings needs to stop with the jabs. He has caught passes from Favre and Rodgers and has benefitted from both. Goodluck with Ponder this year, his stats are going to decline

  6. Jennings, no one in Green Bay cares what you have to say or that you are gone. You are seriously a hypocrite. Saying you are a team player and Rodgers isn’t – and then you go to Minny and it’s all about how YOU have to show the NFL world you don’t need a QB like Favre or Rodgers to be good. So just shut up and play.

  7. all it shows is Jennings is still upset he isn’t with the packers anymore. he had to sign with the vikings because he was always injured for the packers and not useful for them anymore. as a bears fan it is my sworn duty to hate the packers but you can’t deny the greatness that #12 is. it’s all about him because he is the reason they win. will find out how big a team player jennings is when he does not get the perfect passes or the amount of catches he did with the packers now that ponder is his qb and not #12.

  8. So, Jennings came out and said months ago that he wanted to go where he’d have a greater role and more personal glory. Now, it’s all about the team. I used to think Jennings was a pretty classy guy, but this hating and fixation on his old team and old qb is getting kind of pathetic.

    BTW Florio, what part of Rodgers not commenting on any of this other than a playful “who” barb months ago is leading you to believe that Jennings is getting under his skin?

  9. I think there is a grain of truth to Jennings observations, some of you may remember that Finley was spraying some of the same stuff last fall about Rodgers. Has Rodgers ever claimed to be a leader? It baffles me that Jennings needs to be so vocal about this kind of stuff. Show some class Greg. It seems to me that he is a little bitter that he got left in the dust in Green Bay, and saw younger guys eating up his grabs. It was time for Jennings to go, he’s had multiple concussions and has been injured and missed multiple games in 4 of his 7 seasons.

  10. Sure seems like everyone in the Packers offense really likes and respects Rodgers outside of comments made by Jennings and Finley. Both of them had me first attitudes and were just mad that Cobb, Nelson, and Jones were getting a lot of “their” touches (which makes Jennings words even more ironic since he’s basically putting the spotlight on himself during parts of the full interview).

    History tells us that Rodgers loves to play with nice big chips on his shoulders which almost always works out for the Packers good. Whether Jennings thinks he can get under Rodgers skin or not, I would be careful if I were the Vikings. I could see Rodgers having a couple of career games against them this season.

  11. Don’t question my friend Ryan Braun! I said he’s clean, and that means he’s clean! Cuz I said it! And I ought to know better that you, or Dr’s, or any of you other hacks!

    signed,

    AR

  12. Jennings comes out looking rather poorly in all of this.

    It’s one thing to pump up and talk about your new team, it’s quite another to slag on old teammates. Particularly the ones of Aaron’s caliber for what they’ve done in the NFL.

    Greg isn’t to WR’s to what Aaron is to QB’s in the league. Not even close.

    It’s weird – for a guy out of a small college that was given the opportunity to play with possibly 2 HOF QB’s and coached rather well – he sure seems to be putting hismelf above the team he was part of.

    Didn’t want to be in GB because he wasn’t “the man” yet talks about “team” all the time.

    Greg was a good receiver in GB – made some amazing catches at big times but let’s be honest, some of those catches were because of amazing throws that maybe 3 QB’s in the league can make at this point in time (seam catch for TD in the SB is one) and objectively – Ponder isn’t one of those 3.

    You can be the best WR that catches everything close, runs perfect routes and blocks downfield but if your QB can’t get you the ball on that perfect route – you’re not going to put up numbers.

    Good luck Greg – may the best team win, you’ve already shown how much class you lack – don’t make it worse by coming down with some “injury” right before the Packers play MN. Get on the field and back it up.

  13. The funny part is that Rodgers always uses this kind of stuff as motivation… thanks 85, way to #begreat

  14. Sounds like sour grapes to me…..

    Let’s see how much of a team player he is when Ponder can’t get him the touches he’s looking for. That’s assuming he catches any of them.

  15. GJ is funny but it is true. The Packers team is basically Aaron Rodgers and the rest. Its all about Rodgers. He IS that good. I will give u that but it takes more than that to win it all. If Rodgers got hurt, even for 3-5 games the Packers season is done son!

  16. Considering Rodgers told his own fans to “shut up” in his first interview ever back in 2008 before the Favre unretirement saga, after which he was basically coached by PR to shut his mouth and spout cliches, it’s no surprise what people actually think of him in person. The media gave him a free pass because of the Favre debacle, and then he started running his mouth after the Superbowl because he thought he was untouchable. The guy’s a choad. He always was. It’s just funny that’s it’s becoming more apparent to people now.

  17. “I’m a team player but when Jordy Nelson, James Jones and Randall Cobb take receptions away from me, I’ll move on from a team that offered me more money and a quarterback that helped me get my first and probably only Super Bowl ring.” Greg, you’re only drawing negative attention to yourself and the Vikings by taking jabs at the Packers. (not a Packers or Vikings fan)

  18. We know Jennings’ sister has flaws. Good luck Christian Steele once she starts burning you on twitter. Greg, wtf? Why the hate? You were very good here, if you would have been healthy you would have been great.

  19. As a Viking fan, I really hate to say this, but what the heck has Rodgers done wrong recently?

    Even in the playoff loss to the 49ers, his offense put up enough points to win, but the defense got flattened. If the defense had showed up against Minnesota in Week 17, chances are the Packers get the 49ers in Green Bay, and stand a much better chance of winning.

    Every time I’ve seen Rodgers play, he’s been nearly flawless. What the heck is Jennings talking about?

  20. Jennings is like the jealous ex-girlfriend who has to continually criticize everything you do and everyone around you. Actually Jennings is more like his crazy sister who ruined Jennings relationship with the Packers.

  21. Greg, stop listening to your sister. Also, the Packers needed one of you on the field last year…it sure wasn’t you.

    Just wait until your sister starts whining about all the touches AP is getting while you are “wide open”.

  22. Rodgers has been sacked more than any qb in the past five years and we never see him show up a terrible O line. Imagine if he wasn’t mobile with a quick release?
    Between Finley & Jennings, they had more DROPS than a Visene bottle and still he put up with incompetence!
    You & your sister need to sail away

  23. I suggest that the Vikings not send Jennings across the middle when they play the Pack. Assuming he’s still healthy at that point.

  24. As a Vikes fan I wish Greg would keep his mouth shut and just let it go. That’s fine to feel that way, but you don’t go spouting that to the media because it ends up making you look bad, deservedly.

    That being said, he’s speaking the truth. Just look at Rodgers on the whole Braun thing. “He lied to me. I’m a victim too” It was all Ryan Braun and he had no part in bringing those questions upon himself. Nothing is ever Aaron’s fault. I feel as a player it would get annoying to play with someone that can’t see any fault in himself ever. Obviously he’s a great player, but like Jennings said, he’s still human and makes mistakes. Just less.

  25. From what I’m hearing, Rodgers was pretty well type casted in the “Discount Double-Check” commercials…. Can’t get enough glory! With Finley’s criticism last year, Rodgers retaliated by not throwing to him. Now, with Jennings, Crabtree, and Driver gone, that leaves him with Nelson, J Jones, and that kickoff returner. As for the criticism of Ponder, last year he was a 2nd year QB with no one to throw the ball to except the always injured Percy “My Toe Hurts” Harvin. (They are lucky he’s gone!) Now, with Jennings, Rudolph, and Corderelle Patterson, not to mention A.D,, it appears that the almighty Cheese-Eaters will be fighting it out with Da Bears for a Wild Card slot. And, for what it’s worth, I’m NOT a Vikings fan.

  26. Greg Jennings was a good receiver for the Packers – he helped them win the one and only Super Bowl ring he’ll ever have. With that said – it’s puzzling to hear him cackle about the Packers after his 4 touchdown reception season of 2012 earned him an 18 million dollar contract with the receiver-depleted Vikings.

    Looking for love Greg? Trying to endear yourself to your new purple fans? Well, so be it … keep talking. But come the first part of September … you’ll have to start living up to the ever-increasing attention you’re bringing to yourself by continuously running your big pie hole.

    Makes me wonder what you’ll be saying about the Vikings in a couple of years – after they cast you aside – and you’re no longer with the team (if you last that long).

    Greg Jennings – the new T.O. … he’s gonna luv him some ME!

    Still, even on his best days in Green Bay .. Greg Jennings couldn’t carry Donald Driver’s jock strap.

  27. Players can’t even level legitimate criticisms against Mariah Carey… errr…. Aaron Rodgers without Packers fans having a calf.

    This season is going to be heartbreaking for you Hillfolk.

  28. He said the truth.. nobody wants to hear it.. The packers are Aaron and everyone else. .

  29. The more trash talking Jennings does, the more and more he looks like the jerk. The Packers were very good to Jennings and Jennings has acknowledged this, so its hard to understand these verbal attacks. Vikings fans find this amusing right now, but they should be worrying if he is so bitter and critical about Rodgers what he will have to say about Ponder after a couple of years.

  30. This aspect of AR’s personality is no surprosed. It was reported in the press several years that as a rookie AR was very arrogant which turned many veterans off to him. This is the main reason why Favre said he had no interest in mentoring him, even though he had no prolems working with his previous back-ups (Brunell, Hassleback, etc.) Of course you will never see it reported again in the Wisconsin local press errrr I mean the Packers extended PR department.

  31. It seems that Jennings feels jaded. Rodgers doesn’t throw his teammates under the bus and I think Jennings, who is also an inspiring actor, wants the spot light and was jealous. Jennings knows his days in the spot light are numbered and he is trying to draw all the attention he can. He is becoming a diva.

  32. ive always liked Jennings but could he possibly be heated because like wr’s in NE, they are replaceable because the QB is that good?
    AR seemed to do just fine whether or not Jennings was in there.

    I don’t recall if he played with Favre but either way, GJ has played with one or maybe 2 great qb’s. Imagine playing with Trent Edwards/ Ryan Fitzpatrick

  33. This is nothing more than a bitter former teammate who feels jealous and wronged. If Jennings truly felt this way and considered it a problem while playing in Green Bay, than he should have gathered up the courage to say this to Aaron Rodgers face to face (like a man would do). Rodgers doesn’t “create the spotlight for himself,” and I’m sure he would be the first to tell you that he cannot accomplish anything at all without the help of his teammates. If you ask everyone in America how they view the Packers, I bet the vast majority of them would agree that they see it as Aaron Rodgers…and then everyone else. That isn’t Rodgers’ own doing, all the guy does is play football at a hall of fame level and let the chips fall where they may.

    Jennings is clearly annoyed by the pedestal that everyone has put Rodgers onto, and he’s desperately trying to convince anyone who will listen that #12 isn’t a perfect person.

  34. I’m glad someone thinks this is a double secret plan to mess up the Packers chemistry, because as a Viking fan it’s borderline red-flag material that he’s still talking about Green Bay. Seems a bit classless — suddenly I’m not looking forward to daily Jennings quotes.

  35. I don’t get why everyone is killing Jennings. He just reaffirmed what we all thought. AR can’t take criticism, he’s a big whiny bit and nobody around him will dare open their mouths because AR is told 50x a day how great he is.

    Rodgers has been sacked more than any qb in the past five years and we never see him show up a terrible O line.

    This is exactly what Jennings was talking about. Everybody blames the line for the sacks, but nobody will blame golden boy for holding onto the ball to long which causes more sacks, which he does way too much.

  37. It could be worse. We could still be talking about Favre Watch. Still, I can’t help but get a good laugh at this. Settle down Packer fans, rivalries can bring out this kind of stuff. i. e. it just doesn’t matter.

  38. Jennings is a lot like me in that he’s fed up with the media and fans’ obsession with quarterbacks. I’m surprised more players haven’t spoken out about this epidemic that’s been fueled the past 30 years by ESPN.
    I saw Jeff Saturday’s debut on ESPN the other day. The first question asked of him was to tell a “good Peyton Manning story.”
    Really?
    The Ultimate Team Sport is about blocking, tackling and coaching.
    As great as Aaron Rodgers is, he plays on a team with a lousy defense. As average as Ben Roethlisberger is, he plays (or has played) on a team with an exceptional defense. That more than anything explains the reason one QB has more rings than the other QB.

  39. Jennings will fit right in with the Viking fan base. He makes stupid comments that have little to do with reality, he feels inferior to the Packer franchise and he acts like a small child.

    Enjoy the one Superbowl ring you already own because there will not be another.

  40. OK Greg, you were jilted and you cannot get over it. We all get that.
    And then you say that the reason YOU left the Packers was because you were concerned that you would be taking catches from the good young receivers in GB. But no one buys that. Unfortunatly the truth hurts: you are older and injury prone and no better than a forth receiver.
    It’s over in GB, Move on please.

  41. how will Jennings feel when in 10-15 years when they have a super bowl reunion and hes not invited?

  42. Big deal. Jennings is an idiot who has apparently never learned that talk is cheap. If he wants to make himself look like a fool, that’s his business.

    The Packers will now have extra motivation to beat his Vikings and shut him up for good. I for one am looking forward to it.

  43. justintuckrule awesome I agree-remember when #85 was slicing and dicing the great Steeler D; plus he broke TD and was in tune in Brett. The Packers got rid of Favre and Jennings and Bishop, I didn’t want them to leave, so why should I not like them?

  44. Jennings knows Rodgers did not go to upper management and say “we must keep Jennings.” Do you know why? Because they didn’t need him anymore. Sour grapes come in a dark shade of purple.

  45. What Jennings said was bad it was his opinion, which has a right to voice. And you never hear criticism of Aaron rodgers and no one is perfect. He has wholes in his game thsat he can work on like the next player. Maybe people with in the organization could tell Rodgers that but Jennings never had a problem saying it. And people say Packers wont miss Jennings, well Rodgers said he will miss him on the field because he is a big time receiver

  46. When Jennings came to GB he was the rare WR who was not a Diva. Just a professional 22 year old wise beyond his years. Went about his business. Shut up and learned to run routes. Favre said he was better than Driver at the same age.

    By the beginning of 2010, he became the Diva, wanting his ‘love’ like all other so called top WRs. The problem was he dropped passes so #12 started hitting TE Finley, who before 2 knee injuries, was a better target. That is when it started, #12 looking for other targets, #85 with a quiet whine. Then Finley got hurt and #12 had to use Jennings. GB wins the SB.

    why would not Jennings question #12. After all, #12 was 15-1 in 2011 and lost to the NYG when Jennings was 50% with a bad knee, OT Clifton at 50% with a bad back and #12 rusty from 3 weeks off.

    in 2012, Jennings missed most of camp with a concussion and then missed 10 weeks during the year. GB won without him. 12-6 in a year with a ton of injuries to the RBs, Jennings and to OL.

    Cannot wait to see Jennings run a great route and Ponder misses him. Hope the money was guaranteed Greg, otherwise incentives might be more difficult.

    So AR does not take criticism well? What specifically is the issue over the past 3 years? I think the GB QB play has been as good as the position can be played.

    Let’s see how Jennings takes criticism and the hard hit. It will be an interesting season. Next topic.

  47. So Aaron Rodgers can criticize Mark Sanchez, the NFC Pro Bowl team, a laundry list of reporters, 60 minutes, and basically anyone he wants, but as soon as someone criticizes him, then its a foul?

  48. captainwisdom8888 says: Jul 26, 2013 8:34 PM

    This is nothing more than a bitter former teammate who feels jealous and wronged. If Jennings truly felt this way and considered it a problem while playing in Green Bay, than he should have gathered up the courage to say this to Aaron Rodgers face to face (like a man would do).
    ———————————-
    Actually he did on 60 Minutes last November, and Clay Matthews did too. Their whole point was that you can’t criticize Rodgers because he’s too sensitive due to the world they’ve created around him. Now that he’s not on the Packer payroll anymore, he’s getting into more specifics!

  49. This coming from the same guy who signed with the queens shortly after proclaiming that he’d only sign with a team that had an elite QB. The same guy whining about “Aaron Rodgers and the Packers” who signed with “Adrian Peterson and the Vikings”. Minnesota is where washed up Packers go to die. Good luck breaking the trend, Gregory.

  50. 1. Rodgers took and accepted criticism for holding the ball too long and causing some of the sacks.

    2. Rodgers deserves a lot and I mean A LOT of credit for the teams success. Jennings will see this season the gigantic gaping chasm between Rodgers and Ponder.

  51. All these Pack fans on here talking garbage about the same QB that bent their defense over in Week 17…

  52. Jennings….move forward and get past A-Rod—you sound like a big whiner.

    I would think you would want your qb to be confident and you didn’t seem to be complaining when he was putting the ball on your numbers. You seem to have a short memory but you might want to thank your ex-qb for helping you get an inflated contract. Do you think you’re going to have 80 catches…..1,200 yards and 10 td’s catching balls from Ponder? You’ll be lucky if you put up #’s of the 3rd option in GB this year.

  53. So lets get this straight. Jennings is upset that Rodgers gets credit for all the packers success and he didn’t get enough credit? Team team team. Good luck with that vikes

  54. The Packers organization and fans can ignore Jennings remarks as ‘purple-tainted’ or diva comments or whatever, but basically the same thing is coming from a lot of Packer players- both ex-Packers and current.

    Rodgers may be one of the best QBs in the game today, but it’s pretty clear he rubs a lot of his teammates the wrong way. Desmond Bishop wasn’t exactly endearing about Rodgers either. Nor Jermichael Finley. And these are just the players whose comments made the media, which are usually few and far between.

    And with guys forced to restructure, or shown the door, to make room for Rodgers new deal, the sentiment toward him isn’t likely to improve.

    Rodgers and the Warm Bodies isn’t a good recipe for team chemistry. If the Packers disappoint this year, this issue will get more attention.

  55. I can only imagine how many of them are just getting home from their local bar and are trying to dial up their DSL Internet for the latest packer BS!

  56. Poor Greg..has lost a step and is having a hard time facing reality.You think AP isn’t everything to the Vikings? Of course Rodgers is the man in GB,he’s the best player and QB in the league.I’m a big fan of Adrian Peterson,but his main goal this year isn’t to win the Super Bowl,it’s to set the rushing record.You were not anywhere near worth the money you wanted to stay in GB Greggy,so now you whine and talk about people behind their back.Come up with some examples when AR wasn’t a leader,when he didn’t admit to errors,don’t just run your mouth just to run it,you look stupid.Good luck Greg,you’re going to need it.Take a cue from a class act like Desmond Bishop,keep your piehole shut and realize it’s a business and it’s nothing personal, like you’re trying to make it

  57. Oh well….Having the best QB in pro-football sure gets the dander up for those that can only wish they had the same. To resort in demeaning someone reveals a real pain for a top performer like Jennings to have to settle for less then what he had.

  58. 1). what qb in the nfl isn’t arrogant? is this really news?

    2). people who make cliched claims about the packers just look clueless and uneducated: packers d was much better last year than most people claim, rodgers did not “punish” finley for his comments when you consider finley had one of his best receiving years as a packer, rodgers actuakky did take responsibility for his over the top tweets last year. educate yiurselves, people, before you make comments.

    3). shouldn’t jennings be spending more time talking about his new teammates than his old ones? i know if i was dating a girl who kept talking about her ex i woukd be pretty annoyed.

  59. Haters are gonna hate, but I don’t know how Rodgers could have handled the recent Braun news any better. On one hand he said he was disappointed, he said it sucks to be lied to, and he basically said Braun is no longer a friend. On the other hand he rationally explained that he and Braun were friends and didn’t have any reason to not believe him at the time, so he publicly supported his buddy. What more can he do or say???

  60. I think Greg was miffed that after the Superbowl he was pretty low on the totem pole when it came to endorsements and accolades.

    Matthews, Rodgers, and Raji all had national commercials. Rodgers, Woodson, and McCarthy were featured in America’s game. Donald Driver was Dancing with the stars. His biggest notoriety was the “team on your back guy” from youtube, and Old Spice guy 2 years later.

    Then the year after the super bowl he was dinged up and missed 3 games. Then because Finley was back healthy, James Jones resigned because teams were afraid of his drops, and the Packers added Randall Cobb. So all of a sudden the Packers had 6 decent receivers, and he was just one of many guys in the mix. When your 4,5,6 recievers combine for 90 catches and almost 1500 yards, someone isn’t going to get the stats – and that guy was Jennings.

    And lastly, I think he was probably mad because Rodgers missed him 3 or 4 times when he was wide open deep. That probably cost him 200 yards a couple more TDs. Without that his statline looks mediocre in 2012, and he feels that probably cost him 2 to 3 mil per year.

  61. ITT: Packer fans show how much they care about losing Greg Jennings.

    Don’t worry about the thumbs up/down for this comment fellas, you’ve already spoken, and we know…. denial THEN acceptance, it takes longer for some to move on. That’s OK.

  62. It’s pretty funny.

    Topic 1: “Greg Jennings is too old, too slow, he’s garbage.”

    Topic 2: “GJ said something? I’ll defend the opposite to the death”

    ….

    Make up your minds.

  63. Aaron Rodgers is the best QB in the NFL….. He is great in the community….. I’m going to miss him and wish the Packers wanted me but they didn’t so I have to wear this ugly a$$ purple uniform now and play with the worst QB in football and get used to losing a lot of games !!

    Greg Jennings ( translation )

  64. Just what the NFL needs another diva wide receiver in the making. First it was about McCarthy now AR. You can sure tell the different management styles, while in GB it was serious and all about football. In Minnesota its everyone look at me I want to be noticed. it only took 2 months for the minny fans to rub off on him.

  65. Aaron Rodgers is NOT thinking about Greg Jennings, Aaron Rodgers is trying to figure out how the hell can they beat San Francisco this year.. Greg Jennings and the Minnesota vikings not so much…

    If you read the quotes in their entirety, they weren’t that bad, but this Viking fan wishes Jennings would cool it. Then again, if Rodgers exacts his revenge against the Vikings like he did against the 49ers (for not drafting him) in the playoffs, maybe it’s not big of a deal. ——————————————————————————————————————————————————- as a packers fan this was a funny comment. however rodger’s didn’t have a bad game against the niners. but he didn’t have a great game against them either. mike mccarthy was actually having some success running the ball against the niners, and for whatever reason stopped running the ball. and our defense well??? let’s just agree they didn’t show up. either way i’m pumped football season is here!

    Jennings, no one in Green Bay cares what you have to say or that you are gone. You are seriously a hypocrite. Saying you are a team player and Rodgers isn’t – and then you go to Minny and it’s all about how YOU have to show the NFL world you don’t need a QB like Favre or Rodgers to be good. So just shut up and play
    —————————————————
    No one in Green Bay cares what he says?
    You and plenty of other pack fans obviously do care. Lol

  68. I did a “Discount Doublecheck” on what a 2 time NFL starter did with the offensive weapons that AR has had.

    What I discovered is that AR was the second best QB in GB since Favre left.

    Some hack named Matt Flynn did better than AR has done with all those offensive weapons in Green Bay…

    You know, the same guy that couldn’t beat out a rookie for the starting job in Seattle.

    I’m interested on how the fans of the slime and pee are going to attempt to deny this…

  69. For such a “team guy”, Jennings using “I” an awful lot!

    That being said, if he perceives that Rogers is a bit sensitive to criticism, it certainly makes sense to try and get under his skin.

  70. In addition to taking his head off his body, do it away from the ball, at the end of the play. It’s legal, just ask W. Sapp, another big mouth.

  71. I think he is starting to realize that you can’t do the Lambeau Leap in the Humpty Dump, and CP is now his quarterback.

    Time for some ‘Old Spice”?

    Hey Jennings, we know you are reading this…you might want yo keep your sister on a tighter leash in Minny.

  72. Lol… Jennings was saying all the right things in Green Bay for the longest time.

    Hope you inbreeders enjoy this as much when it’s happening to you when he leaves your team, disgruntled and still all about himself.

    Vikings fans are so naive, it’s painful.

  73. All that’s missing is him saying in a teary eyed statement ” I played with Brett Favre and you sir are no Brett Favre.”
    What a joke he has become of himself. Is he even trolling for his own show on TV where he’ll appear in the Viking’s helmet?

    I did a “Discount Doublecheck” on what a 2 time NFL starter did with the offensive weapons that AR has had.
    What I discovered is that AR was the second best QB in GB since Favre left.
    Some hack named Matt Flynn did better than AR has done with all those offensive weapons in Green Bay…
    You know, the same guy that couldn’t beat out a rookie for the starting job in Seattle.
    I’m interested on how the fans of the slime and pee are going to attempt to deny this…

    Easy response for this in the form of a question:
    Name the starting Minnesota quarterback that has a Superbowl ring?

  75. Straight up Aaron Rodgers has luckily won 1 super bowl. OK now let’s check reality. The new National Felon League has the young qb’s and man they got some wheels and can cut and juke just like a running back and also throw on a rope. With that said Rodgers is done and he also needs to pay his bet he is crawfishing on. Pay up you SLEEZE

  76. What this all screams is that Jennings is a typical diva WR desperately in need of attention, something I never would have took him as before. He’s trying to get whatever headlines he can before he slides into obscurity as a WR for a run first team with a bad quarterback. A year or two down the road his desperate pleadings for attention will be met by the media and general public the same way they were met by Rodgers himself. “Who?”

  77. LOL @ Jennings. Old Spice All Star, but defers to his team. I guess he picked the Vikings over the Packers because he wanted to play with a terrible QB so he can try to make Ponder look good so he can take all the credit, as opposed to the BEST QB making Jennings look good.

  78. This is a microcosm of the Packers-Vikings “rivalry” as a whole.

    Vikings: “Packers this, Packers that, Packers Packers Packers”

    Packers: “Who?”

  79. I’ve got to hand it to Jennings, as he made Viking fans look like dummies as a member of the Packers, and now he’s doing the exact same thing as a member of the Vikings.

    Thanks Greg!

  80. Jennings is going to try too hard to beat the Packers and he will fail as a result. He cannot get over being told he was no longer good enough to be a Packer.

  81. JEAL-OUS-Y [jel’-uh-see] noun
    jealous resentment against a rival, a person enjoying success or advantage, etc., or against another’s success or advantage itself.

    Synonyms: envy – heartburning – gregjennings

    HYP-O-CRITE [hip’-uh-krit] noun
    a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, especially one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements.

    Synonyms: deceiver – dissembler – pretender – gregjennings

  82. He sounds like a jealous ex who is with someone now, but still isn’t over his ex. He is with someone else because he has to be, but would secretly still be with them. So he is dropping shots, but still being nice just in case he still has a shot to get back with the ex. And to the clown who made the 49ers comparison as to get revenge, his defense let him down. That game wasn’t on Rodgers. He was carving up Frisco pretty bad, and had the defense done anything to stop Kap, they would have probably won that game.

  83. As a Bear’s fan, I usually love anything said to slam the Packer’s, but I have to say I find this pretty tacky. I deal with a lot of charities for my work and I know how much Aaron Rodgers does under the radar to help those that are less fortunate or ill. He donates to countless charities and gives more time than people have a right to ask of him. Do you see him flashing this all over the media? No…and that would be solid gold. He shows up, works hard, and let’s his actions speak for him.
    As much as it pains me to say it, Aaron Rodgers seems like a pretty decent, classy guy. Maybe Jennings should try shutting his mouth and start figuring out what to do now he has third rate quarterback throwing to him.

    From what I’m hearing, Rodgers was pretty well type casted in the “Discount Double-Check” commercials…. Can’t get enough glory! With Finley’s criticism last year, Rodgers retaliated by not throwing to him. Now, with Jennings, Crabtree, and Driver gone, that leaves him with Nelson, J Jones, and that kickoff returner. As for the criticism of Ponder, last year he was a 2nd year QB with no one to throw the ball to except the always injured Percy “My Toe Hurts” Harvin. (They are lucky he’s gone!) Now, with Jennings, Rudolph, and Corderelle Patterson, not to mention A.D,, it appears that the almighty Cheese-Eaters will be fighting it out with Da Bears for a Wild Card slot. And, for what it’s worth, I’m NOT a Vikings fan.

    There are no Viking fans well except before the season or if they are winning
