Having a playoff game in January in Lambeau Field is supposed to be an advantage for the Green Bay Packers
But Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings doesn't see it that way, Paul Imig of FOX Sports Wisconsin reports.
"Absolutely, I would be on turf quick," Jennings said Wednesday. "(Playing in a) dome? Are you kidding me? Would you rather play outside?"
When it was suggested to Jennings that the customary response is to say that it's always better to play at home, the soon-to-be free agent didn't change his mind.
"No, no, that's a politically correct answer," Jennings said. "I'm done with politically correct right now. I'm realistic. Do you guys want to go report out there in the cold?"
"OK, as long as you guys report that you don't want to be out there," Jennings said. "But, because you have to, you do your job and do it to the best of your ability."
It was in the 2010 postseason that the Packers, as the NFC's No. 6 seed, won three consecutive road playoff games to advance to the Super Bowl where they then defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers.
"I'm not opposed to playing here (in Green Bay)," Jennings said. "Obviously, with our crowd and our fans, that's what we want as a team. But going on the road being isolated away from everyone, I think the focus level and the sense of urgency is just a little tad higher. Because you're dependent on your teammates.
"You travel, you're in a hotel you're all together. It's you guys against everyone else outside of that hotel. So it's a little different."
