Found June 22, 2013 on Down and Distance:
Since Greg Jennings defected from Green Bay and moved to in-division rival Minnesota, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and WR James Jones have taken some jabs at him. Jennings doesn’t have any hard feelings, though. It seems as though it’s all in good fun and there’s no bad blood between the former teammates. Aaron Rodgers fired the first volley back in April at the annual Wisconsin Sports Awards. Rodgers accepted an award on behalf of his teammate, James Jones, for “Inspirational Player of the Year”. When asked by reporters about his former target Jennings, Rodgers responded “…who?” The crowd reponded with an audible “ohhhhh!” and Rodgers responded to that with, “must be some Vikings fans in here,” which the crowd booed loudly. Wide receiver James Jones also took a shot at his former teammate when he was asked what it’s like not to have Jennings and Donald Driver around, causing people to believe that James Jones disliked Jennings. “Yeah, those are my dogs,” Jones said to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “But I don’t like Greg no more. He left us. But ‘D-Drive’ is my dog.” Do Greg Jennings and Aaron Rodgers have bad blood? Or is it all in good fun?(Photo Credit: Zimbio.com) Jennings responded at the beginning of this month. In a conversation with the Pioneer Press, Jennings was asked to compare the last two quarterbacks he caught passes from Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre, and his current quarterback Christian Ponder, he might have subtly taken a shot at Rodgers. “I’ll take Brett. He did it for so long. I got there in a period of time where Brett already was there (as an elite quarterback). Then the guy they have now, he sat behind Brett and he learned so much.” With the jabs coming from both sides, it’s understandable that some people might believe that there actually is bad blood between Jennings and his former team but he insists that’s not true. “I have no ill feelings for anyone over there,” Jennings wrote in Saturday’s edition of the Pioneer Press. “We’re just back and forth. (Rodgers) jokes. I joke.” The feud seems to be non-existent and nothing but joking between friends, which is probably for the best. Instead of former players trashing their ex-teammates in the media, they need to realize that at the end of the day it’s better to just move on and try to be the best player you can be. By the way, the first time that Jennings will have a chance to play his former team is in Minnesota on October 27th. Get ready for some fireworks in the Dome that day, folks.   Follow us on twitter! @realsportskings @downanddistance @tadjohnsonSK The post Greg Jennings: Feud With Packers is Just a Joke appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE - Presented by Sports-Kings.
