GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It didn't take long for Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings to find out that his sister, Valyncia Jennings, had taken several shots at quarterback Aaron Rodgers via Twitter during Green Bay's regular-season finale. As soon as the game ended Sunday, the team's public relations staff informed Jennings about his sister's comments, which included calling Rodgers an "idiot," and writing, "It is so obvious that @GregJennings is being blatantly ignored by ARod." Jennings called his sister, who has since deleted her Twitter account, the moment he stepped out of the locker room. "I'm like, 'C'mon, you can't do that to me,' " Jennings said Wednesday. "I'm not mad at her, I'm not saying it was right, I'm not saying it's wrong. It's her opinion. She puts me in a position where I have to answer to you guys, which, selfishly, that's unfair." Among Valyncia Jennings' other remarks: "ARod is the most overrated QB in the league! He is nowhere near Peyton or Brady! It sickens me, Peyton would avg. 5 TD with this squad!!!" "Aaron Rodgers smh! Had him in the slot wide open no one even covered him! Where is Peyton Manning when u need him! This is utterly pathetic" "My God Aaron Rodgers holds the ball forever! GJ was wide open 5x for that touchdown! Goodness he acts like he doesn't want to throw to him" "Who can make a play @GregJennings can! He's the best freakin receiver these clowns got! Now take your talents to south beach & get paid!" "@GregJennings ball out so you can leave this team! They will miss u when your gone! It's all good bye packers! Cheap team, can't afford him" And, in a tweet to Jennings' wife Nicole: "@Da_mrs_85 I don't freakin care he should have more catches, if this idiot could see the coverage!! Then he holds on to the ball & fumbles!" The timing of the comments were particularly notable because Jennings had by far his best game of the season, catching eight passes for 120 yards and two touchdowns. Rodgers, meanwhile, completed 28 of 40 passes for 365 yards, four touchdowns and a ridiculous 131.8 QB rating. "I didn't care for it, particularly, but everyone's entitled to their own opinion," Jennings said. "Social media's like that. I look at my timeline sometimes and there aren't too many Greg Jennings fans out there sometimes. You know, she's entitled to her own opinion. I'm going to give her a call and let her see the playbook, and maybe she'll be more satisfied with the playbook this week and see if I'm implemented as much as she would like." Jennings, who is a free agent this season, has stated several times in recent months that he's not sure if he'll remain with the Packers after this year. "I just told her that she should probably say, 'These are your feelings and not mine," Jennings said. "I kind of play both sides of it because, as a person that's on Twitter and people who are on Twitter, you feel like you can say whatever you want to say. She's no different; she's just my sister, so it's a big deal. There are people who are on Twitter that say whatever they want to say every single day and it's no news. "It's only news because she's my sister. There are probably more than her that are talking about Aaron, myself, the Green Bay Packers. It's not news when it comes to that, but, because she's my sister and my position and my situation, it can be news." Jennings added that he has talked to Rodgers this week about the comments and that he believes there are no issues between the two. Jennings also said his sister's opinions were not the result of any private comments he's made around his family. "We all have siblings," Jennings said. "Our siblings are going to say some things sometimes; hopefully they don't, but we have to answer the questions for them because we're in the spotlight. It's just the nature of the game. "I remember I saw something on the timeline that said, 'I love Greg Jennings, but he has to control his familly.' My feelings about that is if we all controlled our loved ones, there would be no hate, no crime, no anything in the world. It would be a better place. Everyone can't control that. As a parent, I can't control everything my kid does, so how do you expect me to control an adult? It's just not the reality that we live in. "Do we hope people will make the right decision and do the right thing? Absolutely. Is that going to take place? No. Not every time." Follow Paul Imig on Twitter.
