Jennings: I'll take Brett (over Rodgers)

When asked by the Pioneer Press who he preferred as a quarterback, Favre or Rodgers, former Packers WR Greg Jennings continued to grow into a hated rival by saying that he would take Brett.

"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."
I don't really consider that statement big, but apparently some people do.

I don't think he was asked to choose Brett over Aaron. It was an odd response to the question. Jennings was asked how he can help Christian Ponder and his reply was comparing how Rodgers (as a rookie) learned from Favre by example while Ponder (as a rookie) didn't have a veteran QB to learn from. It was a comparison of the situation, not the QBs. However, it was odd that Jennings wouldn't mention Rodgers by name.
