In actuality, we all have flaws."Rodgers said he wasn't spending time or energy on Jennings' comments."I'm concerned with the opinions of the guys in this locker room and the guys we have here," Rodgers said.
"It's exciting to be able to be one of the leaders of this football team, and I'm very confident in my style."Not surprisingly, the current Packers had the quarterback's back."It is what it is," receiver Randall Cobb said about Jennings' remarks. He puts us in some great situations on and off the field.
The tempo has picked up a little from previous years, in part because music is being played on loudspeakers during what are being called "TV timeouts." It's designed to give players a breather and, in part, to mimic the routines during games. — Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers talked Friday about suspended Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun, Rodgers' friend and business partner, during his post-practice press conference.In the locker room, however, the off-the-field questions didn't stop at Braun.Earlier this week, former Packers receiver Greg Jennings -- now with the archrival Minnesota Vikings -- criticized his ex-quarterback.The Milwaukee Brewers outfielder was suspended for several months during the Major League season this year, after admitting that an overturned positive performance-enhancement drug test in 2011 had been accurate.
In February 2013, it was revealed that Braun's name appeared in the records of a Miami clinic which allegedly distributed performance-enhancing drugs to several baseball players, including Alex ‘A-Rod’ Rodriguez.
Describing himself as shocked and disappointed, Rodgers said Friday after the Packers' first training camp practice that Braun "looked at me in the eye on multiple occasions and repeatedly denied the allegations" that the Milwaukee Brewers slugger was using performance-enhancing drugs.
Braun this week accepted a season-ending 65-game suspension after admitting to violating baseball's rules against using PEDs.
In an interview with the Star Tribune, Jennings questioned Rodgers' leadership and implied the quarterback had become bigger than the team."Don't get me wrong, '12' is a great person," Jennings was quoted as saying, referring to Rodgers.
"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.
Rodgers felt duped by his buddy and business associate, a sentiment being expressed by many in Wisconsin.
