Minneapolis, MN, United States (4E Sports) – Minnesota Vikings receiver Greg Jennings insists he was brainwashed by his former team, the Green Bay Packers, to think they were far superior from the competition.
He described the supposed scheme by the Packers as “like total brainwashing,” blurring how players perceive other teams.
During his seven years with the Packers, Jennings said they didn’t get to open their eyes to see what other teams have to offer.
He says he is now afforded that position to see the real deal upon signing with Minnesota Vikings in the offseason.
Jennings also criticized the leadership skills of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers last month.
But he is all praise for Packers coach Mike McCarthy when asked about the difference between training camps of the Packers and Vikings.
McCarthy, said Jennings, is one of those guys who are very mindful of how to evaluate the team for improvement and makes a big difference because of his experience with the game.
According to Jennings, the Packers coach would check what needs to be cut back and implemented on a day-to-day basis to get the team fresh. He tries to get to get quality work versus quantity.
“We are pushing through everything, working hard every single day, which is always great to work out, but at the same time, you’ve got to give and take a little bit,” Jennings described the training with the Packers.
He clarified that he’s not saying Vikings coach Leslie Frazier doesn’t do what McCarthy does.
