MINNEAPOLIS - The war of words is continuing, and possibly escalating, between Greg Jennings and his former team.
ESPN's Kevin Seifert cited an interview Jennings did Tuesday about his former team, and was asked why he preferred Brett Favre over Aaron Rodgers between his former Packers quarterbacks.

There has been much speculation about whether the summer-long rhetorical barbs between Jennings and Rodgers have been in jest or serious.
The teams play October 27th in Minneapolis and November 24th in Green Bay.
