It's now exceedingly clear that Jennings is unable to help himself when questioned about his former team. He will respond. It's Pavlovian conditioning.
We've reached the point where the question doesn't even have to be directly about the Packers. Case in point: On Wednesday, Jennings -- a Super Bowl winner in Green Bay -- was asked if the Minnesota Vikings had championship-type qualities.
"We do," Jennings told KFXN-FM, via FoxSportsNorth.com. "One of the things that obviously drew me to coming over here was the makeup of the team. When I came over here, I kind of had, I was kind of brainwashed. There's no 'kind of' to it. Being over in Green Bay, you're brainwashed to think that anyone in the division is just tiers below.
"So coming over here I meet the people within the organization and I'm like, 'Wow, these are really great people.' "
And this is how Jennings gets himself in trouble. He can claim the comment is innocent, which it mostly is (what team doesn't train its players to think they're the best?). But Jennings doesn't need to go out of his way to jab the Packers in order to pump up the Vikings.
There's nothing wrong with Jennings having a chip on his shoulder about his departure from Green Bay. It even can be helpful. But going against the public wishes of his coach helps no one. Move on, Greg.
