Green Bay packers wide receiver Greg Jennings made an appearance on 1050 ESPNRadio in New York with Ian O’Connor and was asked who he believes is a better quarterback between Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers.
“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 un-paralleled,” said Jennings.
There’s no question that Jennings has been a lot more productive with Rodgers then he was with Favre under center. With Favre he caught 98 passes for 1,552 and 15 touchdowns in two seasons. So far with Rodgers Jennings has 291 receptions for 4,619 yards and 34 touchdowns in 61 games.
“You haven’t really found a QB that has done it the way [Rodgers] has done it,” Jennings said. “I mean you have the young guys that are coming out and they’re making a huge impact in this game . . . but his attention to detail and his discipline to be perfect or so close to perfect I think that’s really going to separate himself . . . his study habits are . . . they speak volume for themselves.”
After missing some time with a torn MCL, Jennings is expected to be ready for Sunday’s playoff game against the New York Giants.
