Aaron Rodgers Former Teammate Greg Jennings Calls Him Out For Criticizing His Teammates

Greg Jennings loves to talk about Aaron Rodgers.

Greg Jennings, a Green Bay Packers receiver from 2006 to 2012, accused the Packers quarterback of overstepping when Rodgers suggested on the “Pat McAfee Show” Tuesday that some players should be benched. Rodgers, who ranks a shockingly low 26th in total quarterback rating as the Packers ride a three-game losing streak, did not appear to include himself in that scenario.

“You can’t do this. … You can’t sit down on a show and start talking about who should and shouldn’t be playing because of mental errors,” Jennings said, per Fox Sports’ Carmen Vitali.

Rodgers complained in the interview that the team is now making critical mistakes an unacceptable 20% of the time.

“Guys who are making too many mistakes shouldn’t be playing,” he said. “Gotta start cutting some reps. Maybe guys who aren’t playing, maybe give them a chance.”

Jennings, who once called Rodgers “a very selfish guy” over salary demands, posted a video Tuesday on Twitter saying Rodgers “just has to play better.”

Hard to argue with Greg Jennings on that.

Rodgers’ played pretty average in a  23-21 loss to the Washington Commanders, which is probably a game they figured they’d win.  Aaron Rodgers went 23-of-35 for 194 yards and two touchdowns. Decent stats   but not good enough when you are the highest paid player on the team.

It’s your job to put up enough numbers to win games.
