Remember when Greg Jennings said Aaron Rodgers is a better quarterback than Brett Favre back in January 2012? Well, it looks like Jennings has had a change of heart because recently, the newly acquired Minnesota Vikings receiver was asked to compare his current quarterback Christian Ponder to his former Green Bay Packers QBs, Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre. Check out what Greg said and how he chose his words.
“When you talk about comparing quarterbacks, it’s hard to compare guys. I’ll take Brett. He did it for so long. I got there in a period of time where Brett already was there (as an elite quarterback). Then the guy they have now, he sat behind Brett and he learned so much.
“Christian didn’t really have that opportunity. He had to jump in. The way you compare them has to be a little different. The guy they have now (Rodgers) was (essentially) a veteran rookie. It’s a little different, but Christian has tremendous upside. I think what I see now is a quarterback who’s maturing and who’s growing and wanting to learn and grow, which is huge.”
Did you see it? Jennings referred to Rodgers as "the guy they have now" twice. Man, is Greg holding a grudge or what?
