I had a chance to visit with ex-Packer Greg Jennings at a Vikings practice a couple days ago. Here is a little of what was said:

Cheesey: So Greg, tell me, what is it like practicing as A Minnesota Viking as compared to when you were a Packer?
Greg Jennings: It's really different. I kind of like it here. It's SOOO different then being a Green Bay Packer. I mean, here, they have such low expectations that if you drop a pass or don't bother to complete a pass route, no one yells at you or even seems to care. They just call you "Randy Moss" and laugh!
Cheesey: This whole complaint you seem to have with Aaron Rodgers, about him not being willing to take the blame when you, or any of the WR's screwed up, how is it different now that Ponder is throwing the ball to you?
GJ: That's pretty simple. Anyone that has watched Ponder play will automatically blame him if a play implodes. With Rodgers, he was so damn good that people KNEW that 99.9% of the time it HAD to be the receivers that screwed it up. I wanted him to take the blame so that I wouldn't look like such a doofus.
Cheesey: What about the whole complaint that the Packers acted like they were better then everyone else?
GJ: That's really what they pounded into us! "We're better then everyone! We should win the Super Bowl!" All that crap. Here in Minnesota, there' NO talk like that. It's more like "We're lucky to even be in the same division as the Packers, Bears and Lions! The closest we will ever be to a Super Bowl trophy is if we break into the Packers locker room before we play them!"
Cheesey: Have any of the Vikings players asked to see your Super Bowl ring?
GJ: Yes, and they were quite surprised when i showed it to them.
Cheesey: Why?
GJ: It's kind of like "bigfoot" to them........they hear that they exist, but never actually think they will ever SEE one.

With that, I exited Minnesota and headed back to wonderful Wisconsin.
A big thank you to Greg Jennings for allowing me to talk with him.[grin1]

uffda udfa (2h) : Had it been other way around I would've been screaming and so would u.
uffda udfa (2h) : It's just true. I try hard to see it and tell it like it is. Was OPI.
Zero2Cool (5h) : which is of course ok, i just personally see it as weird.
Zero2Cool (5h) : Just odd that a Packers fan points out when Packers perceived to get away with something, yet ignore opponent. Weird.
Zero2Cool (5h) : Packers added RB Christine Michael (back) to the injury report as questionable

Zero2Cool (8h) : one... that's just how it goes. They let the players play. But go ahead
Zero2Cool (8h) : Everyone knows on the hail mary type passes, those little shoves won't be called. Think replacement refs 2012. So, no did not get away with
Dulak (8h) : ya I think they mentioned that U U ... but you see this alot - even in the dallas game they pushed off at least 1 time (they as in dallas)

uffda udfa (22h) : It's just fine.
musccy (22h) : 5 questionable Packers, none for Falcons. Not good.

uffda udfa (20-Jan) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (20-Jan) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (20-Jan) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
