My thing is I prefer honesty. I don't believe anybody is squeaky clean in their opinions. Everybody has their own thoughts and the more honest they are the more I trust him.

I feel like Packer fans are acting like the spoiled brat when it comes to this jennings thing or maybe they are insecure that the vikings are not too far behind them in talent now. The vikings beat us WITH ponder and WITHOUT jennings. So thinking about that and then seeing these fans be so defensive about jennings talking makes me put two and two together.

If we are comfortable knowing we are better, then why does it matter what he says. Let him talk and know in your heart that come game day, we will whoop there ass!

I agree with Vic on packers.com. Don't worry about the Jennings talk. Let Sunday speak for itself.


I can't agree with you at all. Of course honestly is better than dishonesty, but that doesn't mean a player, or any human, needs to give their OPINION on every single question that's asked. Brett Favre used to do that to some extent, too, and it was annoying. As has been said, the media will ask any and all questions, especially if a player/politician, etc. keeps answering them. However, if providing your opinion absolutely leads to no positive, and only negatives, what the hell is the point of doing so? I would say the exact same thing about any Packers player, or any politician, relative, or friend if they were doing the same things. For example, what benefit did Aaron Rodgers support of Ryan Braun bring? Sure, Rodgers felt that he was just being honest. So, in your opinion, I suppose you think that was a good thing. But in the long run, Rodgers just end up putting his foot in his mouth, and now has issues about betting his paycheck, speaking out strongly against the apparent truth, etc. Again, nothing positive, and only a pain in the ass for not only him, but his fans. That's just one example of an endless list in the NFL and beyond.

I understand occasionally a player will screw up and speak their mind. But to do it repeatedly just reeks of stupidly, bitterness, or just loving the attention. This has absolutely nothing to do with which team is better, necessarily. Even if the Vikings were obviously much better, nothing I said would change. Those two things aren't connected. In fact, it doesn't even really have anything to do with the games on Sunday, it's just personal gossip opinions that won't influence anything on Sundays, which is why they shouldn't be said in the first place. Feeding the media stories is just like feeding a fire gasoline or more wood; the more you feed it, the bigger it (the story, in this case) gets. If it's ignored, it eventually chokes out, and is non-existent. Obviously Jennings either doesn't get this, or wants to keep talking about his old team because he's butt hurt or loves the attention. In fact, if I was a head coach, I would insist that my players stop commenting about other players teams to the public. At best, it's unprofessional, and at worst, makes a player look like a petulant child.

Your logic is completely backwards, imo, and it seems you miss the underlying points, just as Jennings is, and just like Aaron Rodgers did with the Ryan Braun situation. It's just silly and pointless.

Greg Jennings could learn something from Aaron Rodgers.


Aaron Rodgers was asked about recent comments ex-Packers receiver Greg Jennings made about him. Jennings said that Rodgers was rarely criticized and needed to take more of the blame when it was warranted.

Aaron Rodgers said:
You know what, to me, I'm concerned about the opinions of the guys in this locker room and the guys we have here. We have 90 guys right now and it's exciting to be one of the leaders of this team and I'm very confident in my style. I think the guys respond well to it.

It's fun being the longest-tenured guy on the team and I've seen a lot and been around a lot and learned a lot of lessons. One of the lessons you learn is you can't control everything and you shouldn't worry too much about the things that are said outside the building. You worry about the opinions of your teammates and how they feel about you.

Not really. Rodgers didn't say anything differently than Jennings did it just hasn't been spun by the evil media to make him sound salty yet. Just wait till the Star Tribune gets ahold of this response. [-x

Personally, I find Rodgers "he lied to me" a worse offense against propriety than anything Jennings has said. [see other thread]

But I'm weird.

If you go on a media tour then it is your job to give the media something back. If we can start anywhere, let's go to the premise of the media tour itself. This is the Vikings new guy and everyone wanted a piece of him so he made the rounds at ESPN. So be mad that he went on the show to begin with not that he answered the questions he was asked honestly.

I am not a huge Jennings fan and I have NEVER enjoyed his interviews even when he was with the Packers, but I ain't going to get on his jock for him playing along with the media once he agreed. Imagine him just sitting there going to the first take desk and just feeding us a bunch of status quo... YAWN. That is not what makes good media... It makes for good documentaries.

If you people don't like it turn off ESPN and watch A Football Life instead.

Long winded.. But Rodgers basically says "next question".

That's just silly. There are many, many other questions that Jennings could answer that have nothing to do with the Green Bay Packers, and especially Aaron Rodgers. I'm still not buying into your argument in the slightest. As Rodgers said, be concerned about the people inside your respective building. Commenting in detail on other teams, especially in a negative light, is in poor taste, unprofessional, and doesn't achieve anything positive most of the time. Players usually do it because they are bitter about something, have a vendetta, or just love attention. That seems to be the case with Jennings currently.

Okay if this is about taking sides then I understand backing our guy over theirs.

I put this under the title of "busting someone's chops" and it is a thing guys do a lot, I am around it quite a lot around my friends, and I have zero problem with it.

That's just me.
