    Aaron Rodgers' grudge against Greg Jennings might last forever

    © (Getty Images) Greg Jennings and Aaron Rodgers Those who question Aaron Rodgers and his leadership can bank this one for their arguments. Greg Jennings, who announced his retirement Monday after a 10-year NFL career with the Packers, Vikings and Dolphins, still isn't feeling the love from his former quarterback.

    He's feeling the opposite of love, in fact.

    Jennings during an NFL Network interview Tuesday was asked about the war of words that erupted in the summer of 2013, when the wide receiver had just signed with division-rival Minnesota after seven seasons in Green Bay. Jennings said that "was all out of frustration," and the incident is "in the past."

    Jennings claims he's over it. Rodgers, on the other hand, might never get over it.

    "I haven't spoken with Aaron since we met on the field when I was in the Vikings uniform. But there is no ill feeling from my seat towards him. I love him like a brother ...

    "Now, I know how Aaron is," Jennings continued with a smile. "And once you've kind of jumped on that other side, I don't know if there's a forgive and forget for him. From what I know of him, that little chip is going to stay right there."

    Jennings' 2013 comments seemed to take a shot at Rodgers' leadership qualities, which have been questioned by others, too.

    "A lot of times when you have a guy who creates that spotlight for himself and establishes that, it becomes so-and-so and the team," Jennings said at the time, via Sports Illustrated. "It should always be the team ...

    "Don’t get me wrong, '12' is a great person. But when you hear all positives, all positives, all positives all the time, it’s hard for you to sit down when one of your teammates says, ‘Man, come on, you've got to hold yourself accountable for this.’ It’s hard for someone to see that now because all they’ve heard is I’m doing it the right way, I’m perfect. In actuality, we all have flaws."

    Donald Driver, who retired in 2013 after a 14-year career in Green Bay, reiterated Jennings' point during a 2013 radio interview.

    "We’ve always said that the quarterback is the one that needs to take the pressure off everyone else," Driver said, via ESPN. "If a guy runs the wrong route, it’s easy for the quarterback to say, ‘Hey, I told him to run that route’ than for the guy to be like, 'Well, I ran the wrong route.'

    "Sometimes you ask Aaron to take the pressure off the guys so we won’t look bad, but he didn’t want to do that. He felt like if you did something bad, you do it. But I think that’s the difference. You want that leadership, and I think sometimes you may not feel like you got it. You have to earn that respect at the end of the day, and I think that’s what Greg was probably referring to."

    Jennings went on to play two seasons with the Vikings before signing with the Dolphins in 2015. Drafted by Green Bay in the second round of the 2006 NFL Draft, he played two seasons with Brett Favre before Rodgers took over as the Packers' full-time starter in 2008.

    With the majority of his career spent catching passes from Rodgers, Jennings claims he has nothing but love for the quarterback. The fond memories include a Super Bowl win after the 2010 season, a game during which Jennings caught two touchdown passes.

    His message now to Rodgers, via Tuesday's interview: "Aaron — I'm your guy! I love you, man. I'm gonna root for you, man. You my guy!"

    We'll wait for Rodgers' reply ... or lack thereof.

    I think if I had to make a choice, I'd probably agree with you as the GOAT has to be Montana.
    Peyton makes a hell of a case, if only he had won more SuperBowls,
    Brady could end up #1. The guy is amazing but I lost a lot of respect for him through his handling of the whole stupid ass deflategate scandal.
    My father was a Johnny Unitas guy. While I did see him play some, I was extremely young and don't remember any specifics.

    I hear ya, as I don't remember much of unitas/starr/etc. I watched them, but the game was so different then I don't know how they compare?

    They were good no question, but to watch montana drop a ball perfectly on a receiver going flat out across the middle time and again was quite a sight. When he would drop in the perfect deep ball, or just flat make something out of nothing.

    Some years earlier, bud grant at minnesota developed the west coast offense with tarkenton, but bill walsh and montana turned it into a art form.

    Brady, I certainly get what you say, but have to wonder what it would be if he actually played in a division with some teams, where he wasn't guaranteed a bye every year?

    I don't even know if manning could crack my top 10.

    You can see it in his face during games. He is quick shoot a scowl at a receiver he thinks was in the wrong place (not where the ball landed). Sometimes he'll even point them out to make sure the television audience understands it is not his fault. I've never seen Rodgers signal to anyone on his team "my bad."

    This is one thing I liked more about Favre. He was quick to take the blame and quick to pass the praise to those around him. Rodgers is a Prima Donna, and sometimes I think his attitude ruins the season for his team.
