Lay Off Greg Jennings

Earlier today in a Sports Center interview, former Packers WR Greg Jennings said that he would take Aaron Rodgers over Brett Favre if given the option. Everyone, including Cari Champion, who was interviewing him, flipped out immediately. Every cheesehead purist seemed to be at a loss that Jennings would discount the greatness of their man, Brett Favre. The clip that Sports Center posted on Vine (see below) doesn't show Jennings very logical reasoning for his choice.

Obviously Aaron Rodgers has a long way to go before we can say he is better than Brett Favre, but that wasn't the argument Jennings was making. He said that his chemistry with Rodgers made him a better QB for Jennings to play for. He cited the length of time they had played with each other as the biggest reason for their great chemistry on the field. And is chemistry not the key to a good offense that everyone always talks about? The Rodgers-Jennings connection helped lead the Packers to a Super Bowl, obviously it was substantial.

Give ol' Greg a break and listen to what the man has to say.
