Wide receiver Greg Jennings had plenty to say about the Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers after signing with the Vikings and some of the unkindest cuts generated a strong response among Packers fans.
They’ll get a chance to voice their thoughts about Jennings directly to Jennings this Sunday when the Vikings travel to Lambeau Field and Jennings said Tuesday that he hopes to be on the field to hear it. Jennings missed last weekend’s game with an Achilles strain and said that the plan is for him to play this week and receive the chilly welcome from the Packers faithful that he’s expecting.
“It will be different, just even entering into that stadium and that locker room on the other side. It will be a different experience. But changes aren’t always bad. It’s what you make of it,” Jennings said, via the Pioneer Press. “I’m coming in there with a rival team, so I don’t expect they’re going to be [cheering for me]. Not at all. I don’t think they’ve ever done that. They didn’t do that for Brett [Favre]. So I don’t expect anything else.”
With Rodgers injured and three straight losses in the rearview mirror, there are bigger things on the Packers’ plate at the moment than Jennings’ return to Green Bay. That and the very different circumstances for this year’s Vikings team should make for a more subdued game than Favre’s first trip back to his old stomping grounds.
