Jennings should just go on his merry way and concentrate on playing for the Minnesota Vikings. All his comments are sour grapes. He saw his role with the Packers diminishing and he blames Rodgers for that. He says Rodgers is all about Rodgers and not a team guy. I don't see that at all. Apparently, neither does the coaching staff or Rodgers' teammates. Aaron Rodgers' play over the last several years has made him the face of the Green Bay Packers and Jennings, for some reason, couldn't handle that. Move on Jennings. Your continuing diatribe about Rodgers makes you look foolish and jealous.

I also find it funny that Jennings accuses Rodgers about being above the team. Didn't Jennings favorite QB Brett Favre do the same thing when he was going back and forth about retirement etc, etc? Fact is Jennings wanted to be the #1 guy in Green Bay and it just wasn't going to happen. He, of all players, should understand the Packer offense is about spreading the ball around. This whole situation makes Jennings look like the selfish player not Rodgers.

Well, I don't see Christian Ponder being all about himself. Ponder has to get a LOT better before he could be all about himself. So if Jennings wants to play with a "team" oriented QB, he certainly picked the right team. ROFLMAO

Jennings didn't really "leave." It would be more accurate to say he was shown the door. But if it makes you Viking fans feel better to think of Jennings and Favre as having made voluntary decisions, go right ahead. Do the 52 years of failure become easier when you play those kind of games? When guys like Peterson and Allen have their play no longer match their pay, will you want them to remain Vikings? GOOD! I think that will be great and a typical Viking move. As for me, I'm content owning a team where management makes good decisions about when to replace players. Jennings whining about being released doesn't bother me at all. I still appreciate all he did for the Packers and I even wish him all the luck possible with Ponder throwing him the ball, which he will need!

Hell hath no fury like a Jennings scorned.

He can whine and bi*** all he wants to try and get attention. Attention he didn’t get in GB because he was surrounded by greatness at QB and WR. At least he was quite while in GB. He shouldn’t have a problem getting attention in MN with their lack of WRs. In GB he would still have been a good target but just one of the many “cookies” in the bunch. One man leaves, one man takes over in the same way
–“cookie cutter style”!(like 2010)

Plus he saw what happened to Driver, my guess is he didn't want to go out like that in the next few years. He would have been on the outs soon enough in GB. In MN he can be their bestest WR ever for years to come!

How can you be about the team when you take all the salary cap away and strangle a team financially?

Maybe you should ask Stafford, Peppers, Allen, and Peterson. All of them have higher cap hits then Rodgers does, in that order.

All of which is hilarious to me seeing that none of them bring the value that Rodgers does to their team. Peppers and Allen higher cap hits than Rodgers? LMFAO!!!!

It is very fun to see Rodgers cap hit isn’t even in the top 10 in NFL- Rodgers is 24th in NFL!
Not even top 10 of QBS!!!! Imagine that Rodgers just got paid but his cap hit is not in the top 10 of all QBS!!!

If you are interested in just posting BS than keep on keeping on bro!

If you like to use FACTS about cap hits give this a try!

In all seriousness.

Have any of you ever had a look at this site that lists the cap hits for all players in the NFL? You can check by year, position, team, NFL, NFC, and Divisions.

Go have a look and see where Rodgers pr anyone else fits in compared to other players...... Packer fans will be happy!

Does that mean the highest paid player on every team is a selfish prick? If so, I would want that label! The fact is that the game is a business. The owners made the rules regarding salary caps. No player is going to punish himself by refusing money. Besides you almost seem to believe that Ted Thompson would be spending money like crazy IF Aaron made less. I kinda doubt that. On the other hand, I can see why Jennings may feel that Aaron's deal had an adverse effect on him. Perhaps. But I don't think the Packers would have outbid the Vikings in any event.

I think what LBF means is he hope Rodgers contract hurts the Packers so they quit kicking the living sh** out of the bears every year!

He is also clueless to the fact that Peppers has a higher cap than Rodgers this year. If he really cared or knew anything about cap hits he wouldn’t be happy with the bears paying so much for an old defender like Peppers. Same goes for viking fans… Allen and AD both take a larger cap hit than Rodgers does.

When you look at the cap hit Rodgers has viking and bear fans 'don’t want t'o or 'don’t know how' to discuss the numbers... It is beyond their realm of understanding. They only hear that Rodgers got a new deal and ASSUME it is taking all GB cap space.

Many QB deals are already matching or exceeding Rodgers deal. What seems large now will be a bargain by next year.

His cap hit will never be the highest in the NFL for any given year. As things stands now I believe he takes the 1st highest cap hit in 2019. Lots will change by then so I doubt it stands, if it does I am fine with it.

I wonder how the local bears fan feels about Peppers having a higher cap hit than Rodgers this year. Ouch!

Or

I wonder how the local viking fans feel about Allen having a higher cap hit than Rodgers this year. Ouch!

Either way it is beyond obvious they do NOT want to discuss Rodgers cap hits in comparision to other NFL players. They either know it is great for GB or they do not have the mental capacity to discuss the money side of football (not many do), or are rtarded and assume Rodgers cap hit is twice that of every player because he is the best in the NFL.

I'm sure the Viking and Bear fans wish the Packers would refuse to pay Rodgers at all. It's obvious that most of them are afraid of Rodgers and don't think their teams can beat a Rodgers led Packer squad. Why else would they try so hard to convince themselves that Aaron isn't worth what he gets paid?

I can understand why bears fans hate Rodgers.

After all he is 9 -2 against the bears in his career.

AND has won 6 straight against the bears.

No wonder they assume Peppers cap hit is less than Rodgers cap hit! It is NOT true, but I understand why they think Rodgers cap hit is so high after dominating the bears year after year.
