Greg Jennings appears to have been slightly miffed by the ribbing he’s been receiving from his former Green Bay Packers teammates – namely quarterback Aaron Rodgers and wide receiver James Jones.
Last month, when asked about Jennings at a function, Rodgers replied “who?” in reference to the receiver who walked away from a contract proposal offered by the Packers and signed instead with the Minnesota Vikings in February.
Again today, here’s what Jones had to say in referencing a question about not having either Jennings or former Packer Donald Driver on the team:
“Yeah those are my dogs, but I don’t like Greg no more. He left us. But ‘D-Drive’ is my dog.”
Jennings who was interviewed today and asked to give comparisons between Rodgers, former Packers and Vikings QB Brett Favre and current Vikings QB Christian Ponder, Jenning said, “I’ll take Brett. He did it for so long. I got there in a period of time where Brett already was thee(as an elite quarterback). Then the guy they have now, he sat behind Brett and he learned so much,” he said in referencing Aaron Rodgers.
First of all, Rodgers’ “who” comment was in jest, whereas Jennings’ seems a bit on the arrogant and irritated side of things. We know he doesn’t forget those two perfectly placed touchdown passes Rodgers threw to him in Super Bowl XLV. When he treats him like Voldomort and won’t mention him by name, that’s a slap in the face.
In my opinion watching his reaction this season when he starts to figure out a way to catch the ducks thrown by Ponder, no doubt Jenning will be forced into fond memories of his former quarterback.
