Greg Jennings "removed" himself from the clogged up depth chart of the Packers.... hmmm.. possibly.

Or maybe.. just maybe.. Greg looked at Donald getting phased out of the offense and thought.. maybe I should look for a spot where that is less of a possibly in the next couple years.

I like Greg Jennings.. I like his faith.. but it wasn't just about letting the other guys have a chance.

Anyway.. do I think Rodgers and Jennings play a little game of jest now and again.. yes. Is there issues between them.. only they and maybe a handful of players/coaches might know.

At the end of the day this game is a business first and friendships are forged in the fraternity that is the NFL and its players. Personally, I like the playful jawing... it adds some flavor, as long as it is respectfully done..


Why do you ignore me, jerk? Crying Lets Box!

I for one am reeaaally liking this back and forth and think that it adds a fun new dynamic to our rivalry.


I agree. And lets not forget who started the whole thing anyway.. "Jennings who?"

Me TOO!!!
It adds to the "who will win" thing.
Which team wins will give that much more satisfaction now. Just like when "Bert" went to the Vikqueens. They whipped us the one year, and the next the Packers whipped the Queens. Made it more fun to me.

It is kind of funny to read these comments he directs towards Rodgers.. then read the entire article to see that he really wanted the spotlight on him more singularly... it can't be about team in one sentence and in the next people forgot that I was his security blanket and helped him become the player he is.

Still maintained the primary reason he moved on, as he acknowledges in the article that the Packers had talent nipping at his heal.. but he also wants his name on the billboard more often. Me first.

Either way.. it is still over blown and I still like Greg Jennings.. but his team first guise is a might bit hollow if you read the entire article from paper to the west. Granted.. some of it biased reporting to generate more "buzz" from the writer.


Star Tribune said:
Throughout this offseason, Jennings has subtly jabbed Rodgers, rarely calling him by name and referring to him instead as “12” or “the guy they have now.”

“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,” he said. “It should always be the team.”

Asked in a later conversation to clarify those sentiments, Jennings expanded.

“For me, I’m such a team person, I’m going to defer to my teammates,” he said. “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 paused and looked around.

“Don’t get me wrong, ‘12’ is a great person. 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.”

A player who is worried about talent nipping at heals his and basing that as his reason for wanting out is a player who is insecure of his own talents.

Honestly I just don't think Jennings knows how to handle a lot of these questions. He just really speaks bluntly which I like.

And YES Rodgers started it. That Jennings who thing was in jest but if I am Jennings and I heat that... that is a war signal as far as I am concerned. Game on!

Greg Jennings started it by allowing his sister to have a Twitter account! We can't allege Mr. Rodgers is guilty of anything of any wrong doing!!!

I don't know it seemed like Jennings whole career he sold himself as the humble classy guy who let his game do the talking. Lately he's coming off as a bitter guy whose decided to let his mouth do some of the talking. Like he's done a complete 180 personality wise or else he was just being fake before. He keeps talking about how he's such a team guy but sounds jealous of his teammates success and thinks he should have gotten more credit himself.

I don't it is about that. I think it is an excuse answer. He is obviously the star in MN, so he gets asked about it and that is how he really has to answer. Every player should be confident in their abilities. He was dumped because we have enough guys and not enough money to pay them all at this time.

He had a chance to go somewhere where he will be THE guy so if then he goes around and says this gives me the ability to be the go-to guy then there is nothing wrong with him saying that at all.

NOW how funny will it be if Jerome Simpson steps up his game and turns into the guy. You just never know.

As I said, let the games decide it!

No he can answer those questions easily without throwing shots at Rodgers or GB. He's going out of his way to criticize. He's not acting at all like the Greg Jennings he was in GB. That's what bothers people. If Finley went to another team and acted like that nobody would be surprised and it wouldn't be that big of a deal.
