I'm quite sure that Brett and/or Aaron would have frrickin Madden-like numbers with Adrian Peterson in the backfield, lol.

Greg Jennings said:
Brett Favre, receivers around him. Aaron Rodgers, receivers around him. Christian Ponder, receivers around him. He [Ponder] has always been in a position where the stress and pressure was on him. He really didn’t have the help around him to take that load off, outside of ‘All Day’ [running back Adrian Peterson].

Was a great exchange that many will take the wrong way.

I can't provide much input. I haven't seen/heard the entire discussion. After posting this, drove home and on the radio the guys were saying Greg Jennings is coming off a little bit of a sour puss. Which, he is. He wants to be "the guy" and now he is. No harm in that, but why take the shots at the old team? I don't see Desmond Bishop doing that.

That, again, taken out of context. He can't let it rest? Are you KIDDING me?! He was being asked about it, constantly by Stephen A. Jackson and the other First Take people. Instead of READING the text of the interview, lets actually WATCH it, in all it's context, with the actual TONE that it was said in:

http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=espn:9482508

I know the Lombardi article had a link to the clip, but I'm posting it here in hopes you guys will watch it.

I was excited when I read that he was taking shots at the Packers/Aaron.. Until I saw the clip and felt that it was more of a joke to get First Take/Aaron 'going' than something he was serious about. Also took it as his way of defending his new teammates. Because, lets be honest here, that's what this was about anyway.

What have Packers WR done after they left Brett Favre and/or Aaron Rodgers? I think Greg Jennings (because of Adrian Peterson) will be the most successful.

The QB's are making the WR more than the WR making the QB.

I agree.. They haven't done much. I remember having Ferg on the Vikings and he didn't add much. So, yes, as much as the WRs make the QB, the QB also makes the WR. And then you factor in coaching and chemistry, and you get a completely different environment that'll breed either success or meh. And sometimes complete failure. Age and declining level of play also factor in as well.

I also agree that Jennings will be the most successful of the former Packer WRs that moved on, also because of the situation he's going into. But also because the level of talent.

Greg or anybody can talk all they want in the pre preseason. It don't mean jack. Let's review in January. If Gregorious has a 3000 yard 55 td season and the vickies go home and watch the big boys continue to play, who cares?

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..
