Jennings says there’s “brainwashing” in Green Bay

AP

Well, at least Vikings receiver Greg Jennings won’t have to apologize to Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.  Again.

This time, Jennings used a broader brush to explain the prevailing mindset in and around the only other NFL team for which he played.

“When I came over here, I was kind of brainwashed,” Jennings told Paul Allen and Ben Leber of KFAN radio.  “There’s no ‘kind of’ to it.  Being over in Green Bay, you’re brainwashed to think anyone in the division is tiers below.  And so coming over here I meet the people within the organization and I’m like, ‘Wow, these are really great people.’

‘It’s like everything that you know in Green Bay is like the best, the best, the best, the best, the best,” Jennings said.  “And it’s like total brainwashing.  And I think you don’t open your eyes to see what other teams have to offer unless you are in that position.”

Apparently, Jennings’ recent brainwashing from Vikings coach Leslie Frazier didn’t take.  Frazier may have to try it again.

  1. If he couldn’t have figured that out on his own while still in Green Bay, then yes, he must have been braindead….errr… I mean brainwashed.

  2. Umm, I’m pretty sure your coach told you to quit talking about the Packers. What is wrong with you?

  3. “It’s like everything that you know in Green Bay is like the best, the best, the best, the best, the best”

    Maybe because they’re the best in the division?

  4. Ted Thompson & Mike McCarthy run a dictatorship over at Green Bay, they brainwash all the fans and make it seem like they are historic and great franchise when really they are just an overrated, over-controlled organization that’s run with no class

  5. Greg, get over it! The Packers didn’t want you and no amount of venom thrown their way will change what happened. You cannot seem to come to grips with your age, declining skills and propensity for injury. Move on already, you are acting like a scorned Fifth Grader.

  6. Green Bay is tiers above other teams. Ur supposed to act that way towards other teams. Jennings is just upset because he was let go. GET OVER IT.

  7. Note: in order to be brainwashed you need to have a brain…which clearly Greg Jennings does not…. Can’t wait for you to get DRILLED in your first game against GB…… If you even make it that far

  8. Can’t this guy just shut up?

    It’s looking more like he never had a brain that required washing to begin with.

  9. Somebody needs to put a muzzle on this dude. Who cares if Green Bay made you think they were better than the other teams in their division…isn’t that what a good team does?

  10. Cmon Greg, why do you keep talking about your past team? Vikings fans are happy you’re here, but we don’t need to hear smack talk to like you.

    Be above that yo! Show em what you’re missing with your play. The humble player is always to most respected.

  11. Well thats how you become the best… It to think your the best. That is why the Viking can never get over the hump. Because they only think that they are 2nd tear.
    WOW, what a dumb statement!!!

  12. C’mon Greg… what else would you expect from a team that won multiple Superbowls?!

    Green Bay sucks… I mean sucks… I mean really really suck???

    That’s what you want to hear from a franchise.

    I’m a 49er fan and I still expected to say they were the best or at least tried to be.

    That’s called setting the bar man.

  13. brainwashing can only be done to weak minds sooo…….

    but in all seriousness lets take a look at the record

    Packers 4 SuperBowls
    Bears 1 SuperBowl
    Lions 0 SuperBowls
    Vikings 0 SuperBowls

    Yes…everyone in the division is tiers below. What is the issue?

  14. Yes the countless division wins and division titles the past few years are brainwashing. It was all made up just to make the Packers seem good. Little known fact: the Packers actually went 3-13 last year. They just brainwashed everyone into thinking they won the division. I think someone is a tad bitter…

  15. “Apparently, Jennings’ recent brainwashing from Vikings coach Leslie Frazier didn’t take. Frazier may have to try it again.”

    HAHAHA! Green Bay has lots of Skeletons in the closet……..

  16. Smh. Keep your personal opinions of teams to your self. I’m so tired of this. It’s just a petty jab. Let your play on the field do the talking, and keep the idle smack in the bush leagues. Be professional.

  17. Honestly, at this point, Greg Jennings just needs to shutup and stop talking about Green Bay. He sounds like a fool.

  18. 2009 Packers: 11-5 (wild card)
    2010 Packers: 10-6 (wild card, won Super Bowl)
    2011 Packers: 15-1 (division champs)
    2012 Packers: 11-5 (division champs)

    Packers (since 1961): 7 NFL Championships, 4 Super Bowls won
    Vikings (since inception): 1 NFL Championship, 0 Super Bowls won

    Where’s the hypnotist?

  19. This guys keeps on putting up bulletin board material.
    The Green Bay Packers are clearly the better team here. Its like teasing a sleaping bear with a stick and the cage is unlocked.

  20. Wow….Greg Greeg Greeeg Greg GREG…sounds like you’re still a tad bit upset that the Packer’s realized you were expendable, actually lost money on your new contract, and ended up now being on a losing organization!

    Get over it and just play football….

    ————-

    Except the Giants, who OWN THEM.

  22. I thought the head coach was going to talk to Jennings ?? Coach do your job, this keep will be talking smack all day long if you don’t do anything.

  23. When a player departs from an organization, is it mandatory to talk badly about their former employer?

    Greg Jennings should be thankful for his time with Green Bay. Because of the offense and stellar quarterbacks and coaching staff, he became an elite wide receiver. Yes, he obviously deserves credit as well.

    His comments towards his former team is getting to be a bit much. Move on, you’re starting to sound like a jealous ex-girlfriend.

  24. And apparently they’re brainwashed into making the playoffs and losing in the second round…

  25. To me, I don’t see the problem with this particular comment. It’s not worded very well, but he’s basically saying “the people here are much brighter, and the organization is run much better, than I believed when I was in GB”. The general idea seems like more of a compliment to Minny than a shot at GB

    Talking about brainwashing kind of goes off the rails, but this guy isn’t exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer.

  26. It’s funny to read all the Packer fans show their usual hatred for anyone who dares leave the team in free agency. Jennings had many great years playing for GB and may well have success in MN as well. If Jennings truly was as boneheaded, injury prone, over-the-hill, and nonessential as Packer fans think, then why did Thompson offer Jennings $10 million a year to stay? He’d sure look good in a Packer uniform now, especially with the injuries to the remaining Packer WRs. #GetOverIt

  27. Unlike every other team, where coaches and GMs tell players how the home team stinks and all the opponents are awesome?

  28. The Packers have the audacity to drill it into their players that they are the best in the division, which is then backed up by perennially winning the division.

    Yeah, what a mess GB is. Shut this idiot up.

  29. The Packers and their fans have a legacy. They through one of the greatest, most exciting QBs to ever play the game under the bus when he should have been allowed a year or two to retire a Packer. Instead he was mocked and ridiculed by a classless fan base. Sad really. I’ll never root for them again.

  30. BREAKING NEWS

    Professional sports team internally reinforces the idea they are the best and that opposing teams are not as good.

    More at 11.

  31. To quote the great philosopher Randy Moss: “The truth hurts. That’s why people don’t like the truth, because the truth hurts.”

    Maybe he shouldn’t be saying these things about Rodgers and the Packers, but that doesn’t make them any less true.

  32. From a Vikings fan: I was psyched when we signed Jennings. Now I’m starting to become embarrassed. When will he just knock it off? Quit obsessing over the Packers and focus on your current team! I guess if anything, he’s a great example to everyone to leave the past in the past. I hope he grows up and starts to represent the Vikings professionally or maybe he’ll be with the Lions next taking shots at us.

  33. Coming from someone who has no horse in the race, it amazes me how much Vikings fans/players trash talk the Packers.

    Your team has never won a Super Bowl…even the friggin Bears have one of those.

  34. Look at the record over the last 20 years. In general, we ARE better then the rest in the division. Not always…. but usually…. (thanks to stability at the qb position with Favre and Rodgers).

  35. with how unique an NFL Team is. with how much they are worth….Yes, I’d say they have the right to act like they are the best. and the packers? one of the teams with the best history? long term history. Yes, the Packers are a step above a lot of teams and have every right to act as such

    brainwashing? you religious greg?

  36. What this all sounds like to me is a guy who made a big mistake and doesn’t want to deal with the reality of the situation, so he’s desperately trying to justify himself, TO himself. It actually is a sad thing to witness. He’s gone from being a valued member of one of the most respected franchises in pro sports to a sideshow in one of it’s least. Not only that, but if he’d taken Green Bay’s original extension offer prior to last season, he’d be making more money than he is now.

  37. blah blah blah….can’t wait for the season to kick off. Here’s hoping fragile Greggy can stay healthy until week 8 so we can put the boot stomp on him and his queens.

  38. ‘brain’ and ‘washing’ are two words I don’t use when talking about anything having to do with Green Bay.

    _________________________________

    So the 4 offseasons that he had already spent flip-flopping on the issue don’t add into your equation?

  40. At some point Greg Jennings is going to have to shut up and start producing.

    Good luck with that

  41. Vikes fan, and Greg, most Vikings fans have known this for quite a while. Their fans are brainwashed as much as the team is. It’s like a big, arrogant fairy tale to them in the sense that they feel their team is better no matter what, and NEVER do any Packer fans disagree with management while they continue to be a mediocre team with one of the best QBs of all time. This year is just another year wasted of Aaron Rodgers due to horrible oline and horrific defense. While I can’t disagree with the super bowl rings, the fact is the Vikings have hisorically owned the NFC Central/North (18 div. titles, 9 wc births compared to 12 div. titles and 6 wc births for the packers). There will be packer fans who will look that up and still argue that it’s not true.

  42. Jennings has really lost it. How can he even compare a crappy franchise like the Vikings to GB? They can’t win a SB. They have a history of embarrassing their fans….Loveboat scandal….Whizzanator….Randy Moss mooning…..signing rapists after they get out of prison. GB on the other hand is TitleTown. They have been the cream of the division since ’92. They have the best stadium in the league….and a waiting list for season tickets that is endless.

    Ohhhh and now the Vikings owner was found to have cheated his business partners out of $50M. The judge said Zygi showed bad faith and evil motive. What a criminal. Talk about a match made in heaven!

    So Greg…..when GB talks about how they are the best….just remember this…..they are a hell of a lot better than MN. Good luck with Ponder!!!! LMAO!!

  43. Enough is enough, we realize your a Viking now! Doesn’t he realize how much Aaron Rodgers and that whole Green Bay Packer Organization has done for his career. Pretty sure they had a big part of him getting that big contract. As a Packer fan, I used to respect and admire Greg Jennings, but now, not so much. He will surely find out how good 12 and the Packers are soon enough.

  44. The Packers are 25-7 in against NFC North opponents since the 2008 season. Plus, they won a Super Bowl during that time period.

    But yes, it’s total brainwashing to say the Packers are better than the rest of the division.

  45. PA asked him a direct question about the difference in culture between the Packers and the Vikings and he gave an honest answer. It wasn’t even insulting. You don’t think players and staff within the Pats organization or Niners or Giants think the way they do things is the better than everyone else? Of course they do.

  46. I love the delusion that Packers fans have where they think they’re entitled to say “we” because they bought worthless paper for $250. That about sums up the brainwashing.

  47. Hey Greg ~ to avoid looking (more) like a tool learn your division’s history before crying into a microphone.

    In your lifetime (’83) the division has been won by:
    Chicago – 10 times
    Green Bay – 9 times
    Minn. – 7 times
    Detroit – 3 times

    In the last 20 years the division has been won by:
    Green Bay – 9 times
    Minn. – 5 times
    Chicago – 4 times and
    Detroit – 1 time (Tampa won in ’99)

    Since the NFC North began in ’02 the division has been won by:
    Green Bay – 6 times
    Chicago – 3 times
    Minnesota – 2 times

    Any round table discussion with kids (It’s Not Complicated) they’ll tell you that Minnesota IS NOT the best organization in the NFC North.

  48. Well…Green Bay is usually 3 tiers above Detroit, 2 tiers above Minnesota, and 1 tier above Chicago…if you go by the standings. Oh and this is coming from a Lions fan.

  49. Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought it was a common thing for teams to think they were the best so that they had the confidence to go out and beat anyone. That goes across all sports.

    ——

    Huge fan, but I don’t think you really believe that. Although, nice quote – that part was awesome.

  51. Has Vegas set the over/under on how many balls Jennings catches against Green Bay this year?
    I’m going low.

  52. Of course the packers want their players to believe they are the best in the division. What else would they want them to believe? It’s called positive thinking. What an idiot.

    It did not stop him from cashing those big paychecks, did it!

  53. I can just picture Belichick and Kraft telling all their players that the Jets, Dolphins and Bills are just as good as they are.

  54. Jennings should really not talk until he plays for Minnesota. The odds of Jennings putting up the numbers he had with the Packers are probably slim. There are too many factors against him. Ponder is not elite. Peterson will get the ball way more than any RB in GB ever got the ball. I hope he has a great year, but he could be done bashing GB and instead reminiscing around halfway through the season.

  55. @ pillowporker

    While I can’t disagree with the super bowl rings, the fact is the Vikings have hisorically owned the NFC Central/North (18 div. titles, 9 wc births compared to 12 div. titles and 6 wc births for the packers). There will be packer fans who will look that up and still argue that it’s not true.
    …………………………………………………………………….

    I’m an NFC west guy, but what do these stats mean exactly? I want to see two things. NFL Championships and record head to head. You cant call the Packers organization mediocre and then determine which franchise is better based on who has more wild card berths and division titles. All that means is that Minnesota has squandered homefield more than most teams.
    How do you guys stack up head to head? Hang your hat on that instead.

  56. The more he opens his mouth, the less excitement I’m having for his addition to the Purple…

  57. Greg is highly motivated in chipping away at the wheel of cheese. & although he voices his opinion, there has to be underlying truths.
    Too much pride is a sin, packers. Decline is apparent in gb. Sell your stocks.

  58. Of course Packer fans are brainwashed. How else can you explain a fanbase that thinks 3 NFC North Titles in 8 years constitutes a ”’dynasty”?

    We won’t argue it, we just find it humorous when Viking fans start bragging about division titles. The guy who brings a knife to a gunfight is always good for a chuckle, no matter how nice his knife may be.

  60. The Packers decided that Rodgers and Matthews were bigger priorities than you and you didn’t get the Larry Fitzgerald contract that you wanted. We get it, Greg. Thank you for helping bring a Super Bowl title to Green Bay, and I’m sorry you had to leave to get paid, but man, you are making it hard to root for you.

  61. Jennings was a class guy who generally didn’t say much when he was in Green Bay. Let his game do the talking and flew under the radar. He does some Old Spice commercials, gets hurt, doesn’t get the payday from the Packers and goes to Minnesota… and now he won’t shut the hell up.

    Even though I hate the Vikes, Frazier is a solid dude and I’m sure he is seething to hear GJ talk more about his former team than he is about his current team.

    I’m really at a loss at this point.

  62. I mean, his jabs at “12” were petty, but not a huge deal. This whole conversation is just patently absurd.

    So you mean winning the Super Bowl DOESN’T make you “the best, the best, the best?” In that case please return your Super Bowl ring to:

    1265 Lombardi Ave
    Green Bay, WI 54304

  63. As a Vikings fan, Greg Jennings needs to follow Coach Frazier’s advice and focus on the Vikings, and leave the Packers in the past where they belong.

  64. Greg’s really starting to validate GB’s decision to not pay him. He’s also validating that his sister is the brains of the family. Good luck w/ this guy Minnesota.

  65. and to everyone that has to use history, YES, the Pack have the 4 SB titles. And EVERY Vike fan is jealous of that. Since 1920 the Vikes have 18 division championships and 27 total playoff berths. The Pack have 16 championships and 28 playoff berths. 2 less divisions and one more berth in 41 years of existing before Minnesota…not bad considering GB has been around twice as long. Neither team sucks. They BOTH have an amazin legacy…give credit where credit is due.

  66. There is a reason former Packer Offensive Coordinator and current Miami Head Coach Joe Philbin didn’t want Jennings when he became available. Now we may be seeing why.

  67. What is it with this Packer fetish?

    Nobody forced you to sign with the Vikes – but you did – so just go play football for them now. The Packers plucked you out of a little college in Michigan, made you a millionaire, and got you a Super Bowl ring.

    You turned down an eleven million dollar offer from the Pack because you wanted MORE … and after it dawned on you that there weren’t going to be any takers, and the Packers withdrew their offer, you signed with the purple for less.

    Okay, so you were brain-washed – but you brain-washed yourself into thinking you were this stud receiver that apparently nobody else did. Now take your nice clean brain, put a purple helmet on it, and go play football for Minnesota – and just pray you don’t stink.

    You were okay in Green Bay, but you’re gone now, and we really don’t miss you that much – we’ve got our team and you’ve got yours. The best way to endear yourself to your new fan base is to play good football – if you’re still capable of it …

    True, the local wankers will love you for taking shots at the Pack … but leave that little activity to both fan bases, shut up, and see if you can manage to drag your fat wallet over to Gopher Hole Stadium and just do your damn job.

    Fear not, we will boo your ass into the next county when you next step onto the Lambeau turf … but you shouldn’t be thinking about that EVERY DAY!

  68. All you haters may not like the Packers, but apparently PFT does. 6 of the 11 current posts on this site are about GB. Each of those posts have more than an average number of responses. The more people viewing this site, the more ad $.

    America’s team. Case closed.

    The sad part is what you consider passing for grammar. The Packers come first above any one player. Jennings is still mad he was let go by the Packers. Have fun getting less money than GB originally offered (went down when Cobb was just as good) and playing for a team that has NO shot at winning the division let alone a Superbowl. Jennings realizes he is soon to be forgotten by football forever. Most people can name Adrian Peterson and that is it. That is their only player worth knowing.

  70. Jennings is a talker, he’s going to talk. When you come over to MN you get caught up in the rivalry because it’s greater between the two. Chicago only challenges every 20 years, and the Lions run around in the powder blue unies. Desmond Bishop when asked about Green Bay angrily asks to not be asked about it again. We’ve had 3 players now (favre & those 2) who’ve come from GB and don’t follow “it’s a business” line. There’s something going on in GB that’s going to break.

  71. He’s talking about the management, and how the organization treats people.
    And about the stock, –Hey, I have a receipt from Piggly-Wiggly, …I am part owner, right?

  72. They certainly weren’t “the best” when they were getting embarrassed on National TV against the 49ers in the playoffs last year.

  73. MARYLANDPACKER4LIFE!!!!!!! Greg I love u man, but what the HELL MAN!!!!!!! I understand u mad at the organization, but brainwash !! By saying best best best, man!! I pray u dont brainwash ur kids by telling u r the best best best.

  74. There’s a saying in the salary cap era of pro football that it’s smart to let a player walk a year too early than keep him around a year too late..the Packers never ever were going to sign Jennings to the big dollar multi year contract the Vikes did because he had become a bit injury prone and they had someone better and younger than him to play the slot receiver in Cobb. Instead of trying so desperately to endear himself to Vikings fans by trashing Rodgers and the Packers organization I’d like to personally tell him what most Vikings fans REALLY want him to do…stay healthy and play like the #1 receiver they are paying him big bucks to be. If he gets hurt again like he was the last 2 years in GB all the trash talking in the world won’t stop him from being booed and they will be the ones trash talking him.

    Always a bridesmaid, never the bride. Just shows they’ve choked far more often.

  76. I honestly don’t understand why keeps throwing digs at GB.

    The first time I get it. You just moved to a rival team in the division and just wanna add some spice to the rivalry.
    It’s beyond that now.

    It’s funny to read all the Packer fans show their usual hatred for anyone who dares leave the team in free agency. Jennings had many great years playing for GB and may well have success in MN as well. If Jennings truly was as boneheaded, injury prone, over-the-hill, and nonessential as Packer fans think, then why did Thompson offer Jennings $10 million a year to stay? He’d sure look good in a Packer uniform now, especially with the injuries to the remaining Packer WRs. #GetOverIt
    _____________
    The Packers offered him 10 million a year and he said no. Then Cobb was able to replace him effectively and the 10 million a year was lowered which infuriated Jennings and allowed him to go and play for a second tier team. Pretty common knowledge actually.

  80. GB brainwashes players into thinking they are the best…i love it. Huge history of winning in that town and they expect to win every year. Sounds like they are doing something right in GB.

  81. wow first ap rats out players for taking peds
    now jennings snitches on a entire organization for brainwashing
    welcome to Minnesota where the men snitch on each other and wear purple

  82. Various Heidi fans shriek with glee while clad in their official purple “A.D.” Dr. Dentons.

  83. yeah us viking fans will look at the score board at the end of the games and have a big smile on our faces and hopefully we wont have to hear your dreaded chant go pack go. Like we did on last monday raw how annoying.

    I love the delusion that Packers fans have where they think they’re entitled to say “we” because they bought worthless paper for $250. That about sums up the brainwashing.
    //////////////////////////////////

    I have news for you….you know that Randy Moss jersey that you won’t let your wife throw away? It’s not real. It’s a knock-off. Sorry to burst your bubble.

    In the meantime the stock certificate will be framed and can hang on the wall for the next one-hundred years. I wouldn’t wash my car with your old jersey.

  85. Jennings IQ is on display and must be about the number MN gave him. What team doesn’t tell their players that they are the best????

  86. With how delusional the fan base is you would have to think there is some kind of brain washing or government experiment that is changing the Packer fan base. Evidence from this has been proven; brain size, and large increases of body fat are the main symptoms, officials have said.

  87. Mike McCarthy presser, August 2006

    Bedard: “Mike, do you have any reservations starting Jennings as a rookie being that he came from a small school and everything?”

    McCarthy: “No, I don’t. Greg earned the right to start with his play in camp. He worked hard and separated himself and has really bought into the program here. He will start alongside Donald and that’s where we are at right now.”

    So….

    Hey Greg…that guy brainwashed you? You are an undersized wideout from Central Michigan. He gave you your shot. You played with Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers, and won a Super Bowl in Green Bay. I hope you trip on the front steps of the Dome and knock your two front teeth out. That is, if the Dome doesn’t fall down again before you make it there.

  88. You guys are blind, this guy is doing this to rile up both sides on the rivalry since it brings good ratings and keeps the flames hot. Favre did the same thing when he came to the purple and gold, albeit his delivery was different.

    From the comments on here, it’s pretty obvious it’s working.

  89. Hey Kingpel,

    To answer your question, the Pack leads the all-time series 55-49-1, they are tied 1-1 in the postseason. This info is from Wiki, so hopefully it is correct.

    I am looking forward to a few good battles this year. I am not looking forward to the stupid chit spewed by morons on the internet.

  90. Gregory, I get the whole come to the division rival that your old team knocked of the playoffs this past year & now you want to defame your old team to rival fans, I do. The thing that I “Ponder” (pardon my pun) is, you knew it was a good chance you wouldn’t be re-signed by Green Bay because they generally don’t pay huge FA salaries to their own of-injured players, especially when they know Cobb & Nelson had more production than you & they went 12-4 (Seattle loss was bs) why did you go to the 10-6 division rival? As for brainwashing, sorry Greg, the Patriot Way is true brainwashing. What you experienced was a weak division now getting stronger & the King of the hill gloating in it’s current success.

  91. Strong words from someone who took their money the past two years and couldn’t complete a season. As a Viking fan, I wonder what he will say about our team when he leaves. Play football, keep your mouth shut.

  92. Is he still that bitter about not getting paid by the Packers?

    I don’t mean to add to the hate between the two fanbases, but I see Vikings fans brining up 0-14 or 0-18 when Rodgers is trailing in the 4th quarter. One question – who do you think the Vikings would rather have? Rodgers or Ponder?

  93. I admit I have always enjoyed watching Greg on the field, but did doing push-ups with a wave-runner on his back do something to his head??
    #S-H-U-T-U-P!!

  94. GJ is a decent guy and a fine football player. Followed his entire career. His problem is they assigned him to Brett Favre’s locker and bunk. The bad karma/bad mojo has overwhelmed him. Give it a few more meetings with Leslie Frazier, and a locker change all will be fine. Oh, GJ, remove Brett from speed dial. He’s not helpin’, man!

  95. “The Packers offered him 10 million a year and he said no. ”

    Yes Jennings was originally offered $10 mil by TT, which is what I wrote. But the bidding didn’t stop there. When Jennings found out no one would pay his $14 mil/yr asking price, TT made another play for Jennings at $8 mil/yr. As the Milwaukee Sentinel reported, “Sources familiar with negotiations said Jennings had an offer averaging about $8 million from the Packers before he took a five-year contract from the Minnesota Vikings that averaged about $9 million.” So TT offered Jennings long-term deals at $10 and $8 mil/yr…which is my point. You can’t write off Jennings as some flop or has-been when your own GM was offering tens of millions of dollars to keep him.

  96. I used to work in Milwaukee and trust me, Green Bay’s biggest rival is the Chicago Bears. Sorry Minnesota, but it’s true.

    To you it’s the coveted “border battle”

    Green Bay has 3 of them.

  97. Just a couple things to say here from a Vikes fan…

    1. Greg Jennings, please keep your mouth shut.

    2. I read this article as Jennings was expecting to
    show up at the Metrodome and finding burnt out
    cars in the parking lot, members of the
    management shooting up drugs in their offices,
    and teammates betting on dog fights in the
    locker room showers, and all this because
    his former team in Green Bay said it was true.
    Totally false! They do all that stuff over at
    Winter Park….

    FACT: When trailing in the 4th Qtr., Aaron Rogers is 0-14 in his career.
    ________________________________

    FACT: Aaron Rodgers has more super bowl victories than every Vikings quarterback in franchise history combined.

  99. Ted Thompson & Mike McCarthy run a dictatorship over at Green Bay, they brainwash all the fans and make it seem like they are historic and great franchise when really they are just an overrated, over-controlled organization that’s run with no class

    _______________

    13 NFL Championships says it all. When another team has more than that they can say they are the best.

  100. Jealous Greg, did you not learn anything from the likes of TO, Tiki, and Chad Johnson? Diva players who throw teammates/teams under the bus and talk too much will soon find themselves out of a job.

  101. The more he talks, the more he convinces me that in his case, it doesn’t take a very large bucket to wash his brain.

  102. The job of any boss/coach is to sell his organization to his employees – essentially brainwashing them.

    Sounds like the guys in Green Bay are doing a great job. Or maybe that Jennings is just surprisingly obtuse.

  103. So he’s in Green Bay, and the coaches and players talk about being the best. Now he’s a
    Viking, and the coaches and players don’t talk about being the best.

    Makes sense to me.

    Ummm. Favre has 1, Brad Johnson has 1.

  105. I don’t hear anyone in GB mouthing off about Jennings everyday. Something just happens to people when they go play for the Vikings.

  106. I would expect every team to “brainwash” their players in a similar way. I can see why GB wanted this guy out of town……..

    Just wait until Ponder can’t get him the rock enough.

  107. jagsfan1 says:Aug 7, 2013 3:13 PM

    They certainly weren’t “the best” when they were getting embarrassed on National TV against the 49ers in the playoffs last year.
    —————————————-
    You’re right. They weren’t the best that day. In fact, they were almost Viking like in how pathetic they were. Luckily, for them, it was just a bad day. The Vikings have to live that nightmare everyday.

  108. @daryllh

    He meant as a vik. Typical delusional vik fan, you probably think you “won” the Super Bowl because Birk and McKinnie have rings!

  109. Chicago & Green Bay ARE on another tier. Your purple wearing teammates have never accomplished anything and Detroit hasn’t been relevant in decades

  110. I had no idea that Jennings was the perfect Viking till he starting yapping. He feels inferior, he’s jealous and he realizes that he is playing for a second rate franchise. Much like the Viking fan base only they don’t realize they are cheering for a second rate franchise.

    Enjoy your lone Superbowl ring, its the only one you’ll ever get.

  111. I’m pretty sure that selling stock to dumb packer fans that pays no dividends, benefits from no earnings, isn’t tradeable and has no securities-law protection would constitute as brainwashing..

  112. I’m getting ready to “brainwash” my fantasy football team right now. Sorry Greg, you won’t be on it this year. You seem to be in your own fantasy world lately.

    How do you know what he meant? I’d suspect a Packer fan to be oblivious to most NFL history that didn’t include their favorite team.

    I’m not a Vikings fan. I’m a Gerby fan.

    yeah us viking fans will look at the score board at the end of the games and have a big smile on our faces and hopefully we wont have to hear your dreaded chant go pack go. Like we did on last monday raw how annoying.

    Dude, no offense, but it can’t be any more annoying that that Damn horn they blast in the Metrodump after every positive yardage play.

    Ummm. Favre has 1, Brad Johnson has 1.

    FACT: Those were with other teams!!!!!!!!!! How would that even apply here? This is the stupidest logic I’ve ever heard.

  116. Vikings fans wanted Jennings, I guess be careful for what they wish for cuz they just might get it.

    I don’t think anyone realized that he was going to Jennings was going to be as vocal as he is right now.

    I appreciate everything he did in GB. I don’t get why his grapes are so sour over this.

    Ifyou go into an game or fight thinking you’re going to lose, you usually do.

  117. I have to wonder if Jennings hired a new PR firm starting prior to last year. We rarely heard anything from him in interviews or TV prior to that.

    Then come the old spice commercials, loud mouth sister, etc. Now that he is gone he is a human quote machine.

    I still think some of the bitterness goes from him being the primary guy in a 1-2 punch to being one of 5 guys that put up similar stats. And then when he was out of action, the guys behind him put up decent numbers at a fraction of the salary.

  118. Just when I thought I couldnt respect Jennings more..

    Everything about GB…they all think no matter what, they are the best. They have the best this. The best that. They all remind me of UofM fans.

  119. It’s called a Winning Mindset, not brainwashing. But it is a perfect example of why Green Bay continues to win and Minnesota continues to want to win.

    Seriously. Take a look around the league at the better teams. They all have a winning mindset. It’s an expectation. Compete to be the best, nothing less. 24/7

  120. To be fair….the Bears since 2008 have a point differential of +183 which is respectable.

    The Lions since 2008 have a differential of -466

    It’s really not that close now is it Greg?

  121. This is a surprise to no one. GB lives in the past in a fog of arrogance. To boot, GB fans, in spite of the team’s history, are among the most insecure in the league. Throw all the stones you can, but you might be better served preparing for a harsh reality check this year. Bottom of the division is a very real possibility for the broken down green machine. The Pack is like a rust-bucket with its wheels about to fall off that has been fitted with a corvette engine (A-rod). Sure to crash and burn.

  122. 1. Greg Jennings thinks its bad that his former team knows it is the best. 2. All packers fans and most Vikings fans see the flaw in his argument. 3. The usual viking fan idiots try to turn his idiocy into some sort of truth, but fail miserably . Just business as usual on the PFT boards.

    By the way, I thought Minnesotans were the kings of ugly… But after spending a few days in Ohiopyle, I have to say that there really are zero attractive Pennsylvanians. So Minnesota, you’re still the queens.

    ///////////////////////////////////////////////

    This is the phenomena fans of other teams, not all, do not understand. We have achieved a state of mind for expectations of sustained success and take pleasure in that success. The universal identity we share within that frame of mind enables us to withstand periods of little or no success. We feel strongly it will return. Kismet. And our numbers are huge. Where did we learn it…….we learned by extension through Lombardi and the Packer Way. Our grandparents and parents shared this deep attachment and it has been learned continuously since birth. If you hate it, you don’t understand it. That’s OK. If you ridicule it we unite and expel you. Do you now know why your insults have no effect on us? Because we know. We have it. And we know that you can only hope to have what we have. It’s that special. Good luck in your pursuit of the same. I hope you get there.

  124. The reality is now sinking in for Jennings that he did a money grab. He’s figuring out he’s going to be doubled all the time and he has a college qb throwing to him with a 50% completion rate. He’s also realizing that the Vikes have AP and the favorite target is Rudolph in the passing game.

    Might want to give a jingle to Bernard Berrian to ask for some tips.

  125. We’ve been brainwashed long before us Packer fans ever heard of TT. I’m so brainwashed, we got on the season ticket waiting list 22 years ago. Now, being one of the 85,000 or so brainwashed fans in the seats and amongst a brotherhood of millions, it will be our pleasure to welcome you back to GB…that is if you’re not injured and not able to play by then.
    Greg, please return to the class act you were before the move to Minnesota and Shut. Your. Pie. Hole!

  126. The thing I got from the Jennings interview (I listened to all of it) was not the GreenBay touted themselves as much as they bashed on the other teams in the division. Sounds pretty classless coming from Packers brass. He also said that Rodgers could call out other players but he, himself was untouchable. I don’t see the problem here.

  127. Well, that obviously struck a nerve with Packer fans. And here I thought most Packer fans had no nervous system at all. Seriously though, as a Viking fan I wish Greg could just keep his mouth shut or maybe just reply with a “no comment”.

  128. Nice job Greg. Bets are the Packer fans have forgotten all about Brett now because you have now brainwashed them into hating you the most. Hope they hate you even more when the purple sweeps the puke and pee. Packer fans are so easy to upset………………………………..

  129. No surprise here. Brainwashing has been Ted “Timid” Thompson and Mike McLardy’s specialty ever since they got to Green Bay. All you need to do is go back and look at their big propaganda machine during the Favre Fiasco and how they brainwashed thousands of fans into hating Favre.

  130. “tiers below” is accurate Greg. As long as the Vikings continue to bottom feed on Packer rejects, such as yourself, it indeed makes sense they would be tiers below.

  131. FACT: When trailing in the 4th Qtr., Aaron Rogers is 0-14 in his career.

    Ummm. Favre has 1, Brad Johnson has 1.

    FACT: Those were with other teams!!!!!!!!!! How would that even apply here? This is the stupidest logic I’ve ever heard.

    Incorrect! The statement was” Every Viking QB in franchise history”. BASED OFF THAT STATEMENT Rodgers 1: Vikings 2. DOesnt matter if it was for other teams, its simplly according to the logic of the poster. So really you , and anyone who votes thumbs down, is the idiot. It’s math..

  132. Oh funny.. noone wants to listen to when Jenning said, MM was great at resting players when needed and not over working players in training camp.. funny. The brainwashing is every nfl fan who simply looks at the title of a article and goes to comment.. pathetic.

  133. Yeah keep talking Jennings, you’re going to regret going to a team that’ll go 0-16 while the Pack go 19-0.

  134. The Vikings are not that bad. Since 1968, the Vikings have won 18 divisional championships,
    made 27 playoff appearances, and 4 Super Bowl appearances. Since 1936, Green Bay has won 15 divisional championships and made 28 playoff appearances. The Vikings are a lot like the Boston Red Sox were before they finally won a World Series in 2004.

  135. Wow what a beating his comments took and even the viking trolls like contra, 28, pride, pillager know enough to stay under the bridge than to defend these idiotic comments. At least in GB there was enough respect to keep his mouth shut and let his play do the the talking but in Minnesota not so much he needs to be like the fan base and throw out the stupid comments to get noticed. Its not hard to believe being brainwashed to believing you are the best would be a foreign concept and rejected by the viking faithful thats why you have been mired in futility since your inception.

  136. This is what happens when the “gag” is finally removed. Everything Jennings has been saying about the Packers since he left makes sense. Sorry but I don’t think he’s making this stuff up.

  137. Jennings is clearly just trying to tweak people. Because he has to know that every team is either telling you they’re the best or are promoting themselves as trying to turn things around and become the best.

  138. So to casually sum up what I’ve read:

    Greg Jennings says the Packers want their players to think that the Packers are the best team in the division. He thinks that wanting to be the best is a bad thing. The usual Vikings trolls agree with him. As such, Greg Jennings and Vikings fans think being the best is a bad thing.

    This explains SO MUCH.

    Yeah keep talking Jennings, you’re going to regret going to a team that’ll go 0-16 while the Pack go 19-0.
    _________

    That is what I call a bold prediction. Also, it’s exactly the attitude that Jennings was talking about.

  140. Jennings is not wrong. I respect the Packers’ accomplishments and the support they receive, but the media and their fan base make it seem like everything good in football begins and ends in Green Bay. That’s the definition of arrogance right there.

    The Packers have done a fabulous job marketing the uniqueness of being in the smallest sports market while operating under the guise of being “owned by the fans.” And good for them. All of that is nice and cute but Packer fans aren’t the only ones who live and die with their team.

    They have their share of scumbags in their fan base just like everyone else. There is more than just one good organization in this league. A lot of people up in Wisconsin are delusional and think everything and everyone from up there is perfect.

    I have one question for Packers fans: How much are you earning from your “ownership” of the team?

  141. Jennings speaks the truth. You can tell by the hate coming his way. People never get vitriolic over untrue comments, they simply laugh them away.

  142. ‘It’s like everything that you know in Green Bay is like the best, the best, the best, the best, the best,” Jennings said. “And it’s like total brainwashing. And I think you don’t open your eyes to see what other teams have to offer unless you are in that position.”

    Like totally.

  143. Well, Jennings lasted one day. That’s better than he was doing in Green Bay, where he couldn’t even make it out of the office without NOT following orders. You have to remember Jennings doesn’t have AHAD or whatever they were calling Attention Disorder, it’s more like a case of reverse reaction to every other word, making what he does become wrong for every other word he hears. It’s in his ears. The inside cone that should be pointing in wiggles around, moving part way in and part way out. This happens at about the speed of normal conversation. Because it’s hard to understand he will do what he thinks is good, then forget about it because he’s not sure he should think it’s good.

    This happened after he took a hit so hard against the 5 inch diameter pipes that run around the fans, ahead of the seats in Tampa Bay, in college. The pipe actually bent inward four inches. The helmet saved his life. Since that day he’s had this problem and he drops every other pass too, for the same reason we described above. We (the people of Packerland) wish him the best of good luck, and that he gets it turned back in. Clyde Mathews will be pumping iron on overtime until he comes to town. So, we might fix the problem with him, throwing a hit on the other side, or if that doesn’t work, Clyde will…
    This just in: HOT LINE-BREAKING NEW’S
    Vikings Coach Frazier just ordered a book: “On Hypnotic Brainwashing”, a former CIA classroom material the CIA bought the rights to in 2001 They now sell the book along with a course on using it. The coach will be gone for three days next week, in Washington DC to get his book and training. We hope Jennings will be in Minnesota when he returns, not in Green Bay, hypnotized.

    gr

  144. Isn’t it a coach’s job to get the team to believe they are the best one on the field that week, no matter who they are playing?

    If Leslie Frazier’s pregame speech is “The other team is better than us, but just go out there and try your best”, I promise you he won’t last long in Minnesota, although I’d hope he would.

    Like this? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

  146. Greg Jennings.

    I don’t remember ever hearing you say anything controversial while you were with the Packers.

    Now this sort of talk defines you.

    What gives?

    Show a little class. You are burning bridges.

  147. Seriously Greg, do you have any idea how badly you have embarrassed yourself and the Vikes? Almost as badly as you embarrassed yourself against the Giants in 2011. I really don’t expect much from you this year either and that is even with the obvious chip you have on your shoulder.

  148. The Vikings are not that bad. Since 1968, the Vikings have won 18 divisional championships,
    made 27 playoff appearances, and 4 Super Bowl appearances. Since 1936, Green Bay has won 15 divisional championships and made 28 playoff appearances. The Vikings are a lot like the Boston Red Sox were before they finally won a World Series in 2004.

    ————————————–
    Actually I think he alluded to that by stating his comments about the Red Sox.

  150. In addition with the amount of times Packer fans post the amount of championships you shouldn’t have to post it again.

  151. Packer fans have to constantly remind Viking fans how many championships the Packers have won since most Viking fans seem to think that that is not one of the criteria for team success.

  152. HEEEE HEEEE look how many championships my team has won! when i have nothing else to say, i point that out! hehehehe. oh please. have a real dialogue, people.

  153. I heard the interview. I don’t know a team in the NFL that doesn’t want their players to feel they are the best. If AP liked a team other than the Vikings we’d kill him. Additionally, if GJ had used a different term or than brainwashed, such as “you’re trained to believe”, I bet none of this would have gotten any attention. BTW, he started by staying “I was brainwashed” he did accuse anyone of doing it.
