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.


So you are saying they gave him OPTIONS on what questions they were to ask him? Did they run him through a battery of questions pre-interview and did he green light ONLY the A-Rod questions? What are you even saying here?!

You guys keep missing the point, which is why I love this. At least one of y'all has a clue!

Show your boy Greg Jennings that post so he can learn how to handle questions about non teammates.

Jennings isn't the poster boy for the Vikings, nor is he the leader. A-Rod cleaned up his 'act' when it came to Jennings. Too bad, I was hoping for a war of words. This offseason is going by too slowly.

Packers hold "wars" on the field, not in the media.

So did they ONLY ask him Aaron Rodgers / Green Bay Packers questions? Did he try to deflect answering those types of questions and refocus the interview? Players have most the control in interviews. They're not really "forced" to answer any questions, especially those that have nothing to do with the Vikings, which apparently you don't understand. Of course the media will pry for answers, but any intelligent person would easily understand that and be able to detect it and react accordingly. He could have still answered the questions, but not actually say much. Ted Thompson does it all the time. It's not that hard.

Again, I'm not necessarily saying Greg Jennings shouldn't have answered the questions. He's free to say any and all things he so chooses. It's America, right? People are allowed to act like dumb-asses. What I am saying is that answers like he gave reflect someone that is bitter, butt-hurt, has a personal vendetta against Rodgers/the Packers, or just loves media attention (or some combination of all). Regardless, it's not something I would want players of the team I follow doing (e.g. See Rodgers v. Ryan Braun), and I would do my best to prevent it as a coach.

I'm not missing the point, at all. Clearly, you are. My point is very straight-forward.

Craig Hennings needs some of this:

He Mad

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.


Again, it has absolutely nothing to do with "taking sides." It annoys me just as much when players that I'm a fan of spout off to the media. Keep that shit between the parties that it concerns. The tabloid culture really annoys the hell out me, personally.

I have always thought Jennings was a diva. I guess that is where part of the difference lies. I respected his talent. He was the best receiver on this team until I think Nelson started getting ahead of him. So what I am saying is that, for me, none of this has surprised me in the slightest. I expected it all the way.

True, I guess I agree with you. I can't say I'm surprised, either. He's a rich man, a celebrity, a physical specimen, and people always are willing to listen to what he says. I get how things like this can happen, especially an inflated ego. I don't necessarily have a problem with Craig Jennings, but his comments are lame and disappointing. Fortunately, the coach pretty much called him out, as I expected. Hopefully he'll learn to just shut up. Redirect the questions to the Vikings football team, and the many developments that I'm sure are coming out of their camp. Leave other team's business to the other teams. His play on the field will speak louder than any gossip he could ever spew to the media. He's good, but neither he or the Vikings intimidate me, as a Packers fan, at all. At least until they get a better quarterback.

That’s not something that we’re high on, and he and I are going to talk before we practice [Saturday afternoon]. I’ve got to grab him. That’s not how we do things. We’ll talk. We’re going to talk about it. He has strong feelings regarding his former team, and that’s good. But there is a way to get that communicated, and we’ve got to sit down and he and I have got to talk a little bit.



Formo, doesn't.
