After joining the Minnesota Vikings, wide receiver Greg Jennings criticized his former Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Jennings spoke about Rodgers being an “all about me” type of guy and that Rodgers never wanted to be held accountable for any mistakes.

Some fans believed the bitterness stemmed from Green Bay not wanting to sign Jennings. Others felt that Jennings’ statements possessed some truth.

In an interview on ESPN Radio with “Mike and Mike,” Donald Driver, one of Green Bay’s legendary wide receivers who retired after last season appeared on the air.

Aside from speaking about his retirement, Donald Driver was asked about his opinions regarding the feud between Greg Jennings and Aaron Rodgers. Surprisingly, Driver fully understood why Greg Jennings said what he said.

In speaking about accountability and for the quarterback to be able to take pressure off the team, Driver mentioned below:

“We’ve always said that the quarterback is the one that needs to take the pressure off everyone else,” said Driver on ESPN. “If a guy runs the wrong route, it’s easy for the quarterback to say, ‘Hey, I told him to run that route’ than for the guy to be like, ‘Well, I ran the wrong route.’ Sometimes you ask Aaron to take the pressure off the guys so we won’t look bad, but he didn’t want to do that. He felt like if you did something bad, you do it.

“But I think that’s the difference. You want that leadership, and I think sometimes you may not feel like you got it. You have to earn that respect at the end of the day, and I think that’s what Greg was probably referring to.”

For another former receiver, such as Donald Driver to come out and agree with Greg Jennings, it seriously places Aaron Rodgers’ personality in a bind. Rodgers has said in the past that the comments don’t bother him, but there’s no way that Donald Drivers’ statements doesn’t sting.

  1. Both players Jennings and Driver , each has a Superbowl ring that came courtesy of Aaron Rodgers . What a bunch of hissy little jerks ! Quit the whining and live in the moment and the damn fact you have both scaled the mountain , and have received the game`s highest team honor .

    Greg Jennings should look at his own game and what he as been able to achieve since he began to play alongside Rodgers . Jennings as 53 career touchdowns of which 38 came courtesy of Aaron Rodgers . Is there anything else that needs to be said about or concerning a blowhard and @ss like Greg Jennings ?

    tophatal ………..

  2. What the guy really needs to do is text a picture of his junk to Jenn Sterger. It worked for his predecessor.

    • CDR says:

      By doing that, it would cause such a stir and bring back the whole Brett Favre/Aaron Rodgers comparison. Rodgers would hate for that to happen.
