Greg Jennings disses Aaron Rodgers

Now that he's with the Minnesota Vikings, wide receiver Greg Jennings can't bring himself to mention Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers by name.

Now that he’s with the Minnesota Vikings, wide receiver Greg Jennings can’t bring himself to mention Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers by name.

How fast a man’s feelings can change.

Barely a year and a half ago, back when he was still with the Green Bay Packers, wide receiver Greg Jennings claimed that Aaron Rodgers was a better quarterback than Brett Favre had ever been.

While a guest on the Ian O’Connor show out of ESPN New York 1050, Jennings said:

They both bring different things to the table, but honestly right now I definitely have to go with . . . Aaron, his body of work at such a young age, his attention to detail, his discipline, I think it’s really second to none — its unparalleled.

In the same interview, he went on to describe Rodgers’ “attention to detail and his discipline” as “perfect or so close to perfect” that he thought Rodgers was “really going to separate himself.”

Just a few short months ago, he went on the Jim Rome Show, and when asked whether he would pick Rodgers or Favre, responded with “Give me Aaron.”

Now that he’s turned in his green-and-gold jersey for Minnesota Vikings purple, it seems that Jennings is singing a new tune. In an interview with Twin Cities Pioneer Press reporter Bob Sansevere yesterday, Jennings was asked yet again to compare Favre and Rodgers. His answer was most revealing:

When you talk about comparing quarterbacks, it’s hard to compare guys. I’ll take Brett. He did it for so long. . . . Then the guy they have now, he sat behind Brett and he learned so much. Christian didn’t really have that opportunity. He had to jump in. The way you compare them has to be a little different. The guy they have now was (essentially) a veteran rookie.

Did you catch that? If you didn’t, go back and read the quote again.

The old Greg Jennings thought Aaron Rodgers might well be the greatest quarterback ever. The new Greg Jennings can’t even bring himself to say Aaron Rodgers’ name. Notice how he uses the peculiar and awkward phrase “the guy they have now” twice in a just few short sentences.

So which is it, Greg? Is Rodgers really one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, or was he basically nothing more than an overgrown rookie?

For a man who has built his charisma and popular appeal around his supposedly rock-solid Christian values, Jennings seems to have a little problem with consistency and honesty. Or maybe he have a latent streak of bitterness that’s finally starting to show itself. Neither peccadillo jives well with his normally impeccable and sunny persona.

Whether he’s genuinely changed his mind — and it’s almost impossible to believe that a player as intelligent as Jennings truly thinks that Christian Ponder is remotely comparable to Rodgers or Favre as a quarterback — or he’s merely nursing a case of sour grapes, Jennings seems to be continuing a trend of deliberately alienating himself from the teaming masses of Packers fans who idolized him for so long.

As far back as September of 2012, when he subtly impugned the sexuality of fans who he complained got too “grabby” during Lambeau leaps, I have suspected that he either wanted out of Green Bay or he was trying to cushion the blow of a separation he’d come to conclude was inevitable.

In either case, it seems cracks have appeared in that perpetually grinning façade that won the hearts of so many, exposing a side of Jennings that is not nearly as appealing. It’s a pity that he would to stoop, if ever so slightly, to the diva stereotype he avoided for so long.

All those years he seemed like the perfect wide receiver — or at least so close to perfect that he was really going to separate himself.

On this blog, as in the law, you can reach the right conclusions based upon the wrong reasons:

.

"Calm the fuck down! Nobody here hates any one. It is impossible. We are all fuckers, and it is impossible for fuckers to hate, because fuckers hate everyone, therefore, there is no alternate emotion, hence, the hate is not real.  Got it? Good. Go fuck yourselves." - BFB

.

If you were right, I'd agree.  Your conclusion is correct, your reasoning is flawed.

.

Hatting another poster, here, is no different that hatting on the LOLoins of the last few decades.

.

No one here, merits hate.  You deserve only pity.  If you, like the LOLoins, can finish above .500 for a few years in a row... 

.

Then, and only then, might your merit hate.

Matt Williams visited the camps and his grades are:

Bears B+

Packers B

Lions B

Vikings B-

The part I didn't understand is his take of Lions as "Expect the Lions' pass defense to be significantly improved. … But another area of weakness was created this offseason for the Lions. Their offensive line played quite well overall last year but lost three starters to retirement and free agency."

And I ask....HOW?  Which which DB?

So how'd the visit from the new VP go, BearsFan?

Did you clean up and look busy enough? Or did he catch you fapping to cat videos like the last one?

The Sam Hurd Diary, Day 1:

Jay Cutler tried to touch my dick again. I was drying off in the locker room after practice when he approached me, puffing on a cigarette like usual. He blew a thick dark grey smoke ring out in a very seductive way. I watched as the smoke ring slowly fell, his gaze never left mine, right before the smoke ring completely dissipated he pierced the opening with his boner. "Cool, right?" he said with a yellow smile. I didn't reply, I just turned and gathered my things then headed for the door. "Hold on BRO." I turned, "What the fuck do you want you creepy mother fucker?" "Do you like cocaine?" he said. I had tried it before in college, a few times. I never did it on a regular basis, I really couldn't afford to, but the times I had done it, I remembered it being a great time. Still, the thought of me doing anything with Jay more personal than a team photo revolted me. "No man, no thanks." I replied as I shuffled through the door.

Sam Hurd diary, Day 2

Wow! This coke is really, really, really, really, really, really gooooooood! Hey, I have to go to Columbia. I am starting to get a plan. See you tomorrow.

Oh yeah, Cutler tried to grab my wiener, and we kissed.

Sam Hurd Diary Day 3:

Jay and I are now in what most would call a "relationship." It's been tough since we've both gone back home after OTAs, but we try talk on the phone every night for a couple of hours. We have a trip planned in a week to Florida, where we're supposed to pick something up from a guy named Esteban. Jay won't tell me exactly what it is that we're picking up, but I assume it's the shipment of coke he talked about back at camp. I'm still not completely on board with the idea, I mean, after all I do make about half a million a year, which if invested right I could live off modestly for the rest of my life. Jay promises so much more though, beach houses, sports cars, gay sex retreats, he makes it all sound so exciting. I really am torn. I just got a text from jay, It's a pic of his wiener in a brownie. He has a weird sense of humor. Now he's calling. Until tomorrow, diary.

Proof Titus young is better than Megatron

He caught 2 TDs and had ~100 yards against Sherman last year

Calvin had 0 TDs and only 50 yards against Sherman, the best CB in the NFL

" Fluke turnovers and injuries. We've been over this. The talent and coaching are there. They will execute in (2013 , 2012 , 2011 , 2010 , 2009 , 2008 , 2007 ...) and they've gotten rid of KVB and Peterman aka the biggest problems plus the Lions got healthy and deeper"
