Aaron Rodgers isn't the type of man to beat around the bush when asked questions. In fact, he's a truth-teller. When he was asked immediately after the Sunday night's win over the Minnesota Vikings whether he could expound a bit on what his former teammate and now Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings


Wow.

Taking the high road when someone crosses you isn't always necessary. Sometimes being a prick is justified. Fock Greg Jennings.

BTW, I have a home and away Jennings jersey for sale - real cheap.

So Greg Jennings says some things about Aaron Rodgers and he is a prick.. Now Aaron Disses him back and he is a hero. Just another example of the kind of attitude that I find so hypocritical in sports fans. The bad guys can do no right and the good guys can do no wrong.

Apparently the "just between two men" didn't apply once Rodgers had some time to think about his comments and be able to word them in such a way that people would take his side. Not that the majority would not have taken his side regardless of what he said.

I know I am in the minority on this but Rodgers' comments about the hug and the conversation didn't do anything to increase my opinion of him.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I have a low opinion of him or anything like that but I know don't think of him as highly as a lot of people do. I've said it before, he is not my favorite person on the Packers team.

Taking the high road when people worship you is apparently not as important as when you are on the outs with them.

I wonder what Jennings had to say about it.

To dakota, If I collected jerseys I'd take you up on your offer in a heartbeat. I might have even traded you a Rodgers one for them.
I respect your right to have your opinion but that doesn't mean I agree with it or respect you for having it.

Well, I just got a Cobb and Nelson - so Greg's jerseys are going to the back of the closet with Favre, White, Levens, Woodson. Yeah, I'm a dumbass. Face. Palm.

I watched the interview and I believe this "writer" totally got this wrong. Wilbon was asking about how Rodgers lets people's COMMENTS roll off his back, not hugs. Honestly, what does it even mean to let a post-game hug roll off your back?

This "writer's" assumption is just another example of how incompetent that website is, IMO. It's safe to say LombardiAve is not somewhere I go for any info on the Packers.

Honestly, who the hell cares about this? This is fodder material that's only worth reading if one has time to kill. I could care less about what Jennings or Rodgers said, in this case. All I care about is Rodgers winning games for the Packers. I don't even know the guy, and he doesn't even know I exist, so I'm not about to get wrapped up in his personal situations. Save this crap for the tabloid readers. I prefer things to be kept private, but I'm not a famous celebrity, so what do I know. Something like this certainly isn't going to change my opinion. I understand both players positions. They don't have to like each other, at all, and we as fans shouldn't really care one way or another.

Moving on to more important things.
