She has to be related to Skip Bayless


She actually retweets a lot of what Bayless says about Rodgers...so there is that.

I actually responded to her and regretted it afterwards. Jennings wife also got into the mix after Wilde retweeted what she said. She sounds dumb to say Manning and Brady would have 5 touchdowns on this team. Clearly, she doesn't watch Rodgers scrambling +50% of the time...Manning or Brady would be chopped liver behind this offensive line.

To add, I confidently say that Jennings is running most of the deep routes and with the pressure and time Rodgers has to throw the ball, he most likely doesn't have time to wait for Jennings to break open. After seeing what she said though, I watched closer and there were a few plays where Jennings was standing WIDE OPEN and waving his arms...haha.

I just find it funny when she said Aaron was ignoring Jennings.[roflmao]

If this was truly during the game, she must get her head checked for brain damage. [wallme]

I guess she got all pouty when people took umbrage to her tweets. Maybe Greg told her to cool it.


I ended up at Greg's wife Nicole's site to see what she had to say. There was nothing there that would condemn the Packers or anybody. She seems like a classy lady.

I just glanced at a few of her posts. I liked many but these two stood out.

Jason Wilde: "Aren't you @GregJennings' sister? RT @VLacri: ARod is the most overrated QB in the league! He is no where near Peyton or Brady!"

Nicole Jennings: "@Da_mrs_85: @vlacri she is and has a right to her opinion.."

I tried finding what else she had said, but she deleted it all. I am assuming Greg told her to...
She had said something along the lines of "you know we do not share those opinions" to Wilde about Greg's sisters tweet. It was a big mess overall and I am sure the girl received plenty of blowback for the things she was saying.

Emotional ties to a player, or just plain emotions in general, often distort ones view upon things. When you think nothing your player does is of their own making, you need to place said blame somewhere.

Old story, can't see the trees from the forest.

But this whole season of Greg "Drama" brings back thoughts of Cal2GB's statement that their was a Packer receiver that thinks he doesn't get the touches he should. And often states it behind the camera.

Another adage... where there is smoke, there is a flame. Not the first time Greg or his family have been in the news in a complaining light this season.

The Packers, post Favre leaving, were pretty drama free in terms of personnel (guys that left were pretty professional about it.. IE Kampman and Harris for example).. we seem to be making up for it this season in terms of personnel complaints. But alas, contracts were going to come up eventually with this maturing team.. generally that is when the bitching begins.

I don't think so. There was some fuss about his agent's comments but for the most part people knew that he didn't say it. You will never get 100% of the people to say the same thing or agree on the same thing no matter what is involved.

Exactly. If Greg was delighted with his situaiton with the Packers, I doubt we read about this even during an 8-120 yd, 2 TD performance. I'm sure the sentiments we heard from his sister were uttered by Greg at Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners with the family.

This can be difficult to imagine from a fan perspective since we love the team. But we are not a part of the inner workings of the organization and don't know what it's like to work there.

Agreed.. we have little to no clue what happens in the locker room unless a player takes it to the media. So any comments upon a players thinking is speculative in nature without them giving the press some quotes.

Even the little birdies that chirp from around the team are suspect.. but it will not stop us from forming an opinion or speculating on a cause.

Well.. here is more to the story.. I wonder if Jennings now understands how his comments in the press may impact others in the locker room?

Quote:

Jennings left to explain sister’s Rodgers rant

Jennings called his sister, who has since changed her Twitter name and made her account private, the moment he stepped out of the locker room.

"I'm like, 'C'mon, you can't do that to me,' " Jennings said Wednesday. "I'm not mad at her, I'm not saying it was right, I'm not saying it's wrong. It's her opinion. She puts me in a position where I have to answer to you guys, which, selfishly, that's unfair."

.......... {snip}

The timing of the comments were particularly notable because Jennings had by far his best game of the season, catching eight passes for 120 yards and two touchdowns. Rodgers, meanwhile, completed 28-of-40 passes for 365 yards, four touchdowns and a near-perfect 131.8 QB rating.

"I didn't care for it, particularly, but everyone's entitled to their own opinion," Jennings said. "Social media's like that. I look at my timeline sometimes and there aren't too many Greg Jennings fans out there sometimes. You know, she's entitled to her own opinion. I'm going to give her a call and let her see the playbook, and maybe she'll be more satisfied with the playbook this week and see if I'm implemented as much as she would like."

Jennings, who is a free agent this season, has stated several times in recent months that he's not sure if he'll remain with the Packers after this year.

"I just told her that she should probably say, 'These are your feelings and not mine," Jennings said. "I kind of play both sides of it because, as a person that's on Twitter and people who are on Twitter, you feel like you can say whatever you want to say. She's no different; she's just my sister, so it's a big deal. There are people who are on Twitter that say whatever they want to say every single day and it's no news.

"It's only news because she's my sister. There are probably more than her that are talking about Aaron, myself, the Green Bay Packers. It's not news when it comes to that, but, because she's my sister and my position and my situation, it can be news."

Jennings added that he has talked to Rodgers this week about the comments and that he believes there are no issues between the two. Jennings also said his sister's opinions were not the result of any private comments he's made around his family.

Thanks for the article.

I get that it's his sister but cut this "entitled to your own opinion" B.S. Your sister just made you look like an ass. Tell her to S.T.F.U. and tell the media that you told her to S.T.F.U.

You have to ask, WHY does she hold that opinion?
I would believe it's because her brother feels "dissed" by the Packers, and told her so. So SHE is going out and making all the fuss.
Pretty classless thing she did.
I mean, what if Jennings DOES resign with GB? THEN how does all this nonsense look?
She should keep her opinions to herself. She isn't making anything better by opening her HUGE mouth.

Greg Jennings says he’s unhappy with his sister’s critical tweets about quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ organization during last week’s game against Minnesota but he didn’t ask her stop tweeting or take down her Twitter account.

During the game, Jennings’ sister, Valyncia Jennings, tweeted a series of comments saying that Rodgers was ignoring her brother and at one point called him “the most overrated QB in the league! He is no where near Peyton or Brady! It sickens me, Peyton would avg. 5 TD with this squad!!!”

By Wednesday she had opened a new but private account, which means only people she’s approved can follow her Tweets. Jennings said Wednesday he wasn’t aware of any changes.

“I didn’t (ask her to take down her account),” Jennings said. “I just told her she should probably say these are (her) feelings and not mine. I kind of play both sides of it because as a person that’s on Twitter and people who are on Twitter, you feel like you can say whatever you want to say. She’s no different; she’s just my sister so it’s a big deal.”

Different times we live in now where people can broadcast any random thought to the entire world. I just wish people would use more discretion in doing so.

I loathe twitter for many reasons, this being one of the main ones. 10 years ago there is absolutely no way that someone who is as irrelevant (w/ respect to football) has their opinion broadcast across the country and ESPN.

Maybe this squelches some of the over sensitive comments about Rodgers.. either way, he understands the game. Emotions of people are sporadic and overpowering at times.. why fret over it.

My opinion, this incident probably strengthens the chance of Jennings returning more than hurts it.

Quote:

Rodgers, Jennings 'fine' after Twitter outburst

When Greg Jennings' sister took to Twitter during last weekend's Packers-Vikings game to mercilessly criticize Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Packers fans immediately began to wonder what the rant might do to the NFL MVP's relationship with his two-time Pro Bowl receiver.

Apparently, not that much.

Jennings was left to explain why his sister called Rodgers the most overrated quarterback in the league – among a lot of equally unflattering things – in the locker room Wednesday, and on Thursday Rodgers made his first public comments about Valyncia Jennings' Sunday tirade.

On his weekly radio show, Rodgers told ESPN 540 in Milwaukee that the remarks will not damage his relationship with Jennings, whom he has played with for seven years and who had his best game of the season Sunday.

"(We're) fine. Totally fine," Rodgers said. "I mean, that kind of stuff is never going to come between myself and my teammates. I think we've all seen over the years, and in training camp we got a presentation about some of the stuff that athletes have said on Twitter that is a little silly. You just remember the power that Twitter has. The fact that someone's opinion can ring all over the country and get a lot of press like that. Stuff on the Internet, like it's said in one of my favorite movies The Social Network, it's written in ink. It stays there for a while. That being said, it's never going to come between Greg and I. We've got a great relationship. My brother says some silly stuff on his Twitter from time to time. I'm not going to fault Greg or his sister for anything that was said. There's family and emotions, so it's not a big deal."
