Greg Jennings says hes unhappy with his sisters tweets that criticized quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers organization during last weeks game against Minnesota but that he didnt ask her stop tweeting or take down her Twitter account.
During the game, Jennings sister, Valyncia Jennings, wrote a series of tweets saying that Rodgers was ignoring her brother and at one point called him the most overrated QB in the league! He is no where near Peyton or Brady! It sickens me, Peyton would avg. 5 TD with this squad!!!
By Monday, shed taken down her Twitter account, though Jennings said today he wasnt aware of that.
I didnt (ask her to take down her account), Jennings said. I just told her she should probably say these are (her) feelings and not mine. I kind of play both sides of it because as a person thats on Twitter and people who are on Twitter, you feel like you can say whatever you want to say. Shes no different; shes just my sister so its a big deal.
There are people who are on Twitter that say whatever they want to say every single day and its no news. Its only news because shes my sister. There are probably more than her that are talking about Aaron, myself, the Green Bay Packers. Its not news when it comes to that but because shes my sister and my position and my situation, it can be news.
Jennings will be a free agent after the season, and the Packers havent approached him about a contract extension, apparently because theyve determined they cant afford to re-sign him if theyre also going to re-sign several other key players over the next year.
Two of Valyncia Jennings tweets said her brother needs to leave what she called a "cheap" and unappreciative organization, and most of the rest criticized Rodgers for looking to other receivers, including one that ended, if this idiot could see the coverage!!Then he holds on to the ball & fumbles!
I didnt care for it, particularly, but everyones entitled to their own opinion, Jennings said. Social medias like that. I look at my timeline sometimes and there arent too many Greg Jennings fans out there sometimes. You know, shes entitled to her own opinion. Im going to give her a call and let her see the playbook and maybe shell be more satisfied with the playbook this week and see if Im implemented as much as she would like.
