Greg Jennings claims being 'brainwashed' while with Packers

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Aug 7, 2013

MANKATO, Minn. - Greg Jennings is at it again.

This time, the former Green Bay Packers receiver is not just commenting on Aaron Rodgers, but the whole culture of the Packers franchise.

"Being over in Green Bay, you’re brainwashed to think anyone in the division is tiers below," Jennings said to Vikings announcers Paul Allen and Ben Leber on KFAN Radio Wednesday afternoon.

"Coming over here I meet the people within the organization and I’m like, ‘Wow, they're great people over here.' "

"Everything that you know in Green Bay is the best, the best, the best...total brainswashing. You don't open your eyes to see what other teams have to offer."

Click below to listen to his interview on KFAN Radio (Jennings' "brainwashing" comment is 33 minutes or so into the audio file.  He starts at the 25 minute mark.)

Jennings tried to put the point into context by discussing the positives of the Vikings, specifically running back Adrian Peterson.

During the interview, Jennings also made the point that makes all of his summer-long commentary toward Rodgers and the Packers essentially useless.

"At the end of the day, wins and losses are all that matter."
