Meet the NFL’s newest diva.  Greg Jennings.  Former star WR for the Green Bay Packers, who signed with the Minnesota Vikings for a five-year, $47.5 million ($18 million guaranteed) contract, has been spewing negativity about his old team. With NFL odds online (click here to view) for the Vikings to win the NFC Championship at +2000,the Vikings are not being shown the respect they should be with future hall of fame players like RB Ardian Peterson and DE Jared Allen on their roster. Greg Jennings’ rants against the Green Bay Packers came to an odd high when he appeared on KFAN radio in Minnesota on Wednesday. He claimed the Packers organization “brainwashed” him during his seven seasons in Green Bay. This follows comments by Jennings questioning Aaron Rodgers’ leadership skills, and a subsequent apology in which the wideout claimed he was “just kidding”. Here is a transcript of Jennings statement on Wednesday: When I came over here, I was kind of brainwashed. There’s no ‘kind of’ to it. Being over in Green Bay, you’re brainwashed to think anyone in the division is tiers below. And so coming over here I meet the people within the organization and I’m like, ‘Wow, these are really great people.’ It’s like everything that you know in Green Bay is like the best, the best, the best, the best, the best. And it’s like total brainwashing. And I think you don’t open your eyes to see what other teams have to offer unless you are in that position. With comments like this Jennings will be without the luxury of catching passes from an elite QB.  Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel are not in the same league as Favre and Rodgers.  Recently Jennings injury problems and twitter rants have overshadowed his 2 Pro-Bowl appearances, NFC championship and Super Bowl ring. We won’t know until September if Jennings will do his talking on the field or in the media, but this will make for great drama when the Packers visit Minnesota on Sunday Night Football on the last Sunday in October.  For those who are keeping score the Vikings have won just one of the last seven matchups against the Packers.
