So yesterday Greg Jennings was asked to compare quarterbacks he's played with in his career; here's what he had to say:
“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.”
Ummmmmm what? Yo Greg, maybe stop talking for a while, sit the next few plays out. Like is he really trying to make a case for Christian Ponder here? I mean the Rodgers/Favre comparison you could probably have a pretty healthy debate on, but these are clearly jabs at Rodgers whom he can't even refer to by name. So just for Greg's sake, I thought we'd compare his past quarterback and his current, just for posterity.
3x Pro Bowler, first team All Pro, NFL MVP, Super Bowl Champion, Super Bowl MVP, single season QB passer rating record, highest career passer rating in NFL history, highest career completion percentage in NFL history, pre-season facial hair game is air tight, top notch pitchman, expert photobomber, movie star handsome (not ghey, don't fine me David Stern), helped get a guy named Greg Jennings a MASSIVE contract.
Married Samantha Steele, made Jay Cutler look tough while sitting out the Wild Card game last year.
Game, set, match. I'll take the guy we have now thanks.
