GREEN BAY - It's hard for Packers fans to forget the "Fail Mary" debacle in Seattle, particularly when the Seahawks come to town for a preseason game at Lambeau Field on Friday (5:00 p.m. on 620WTMJ and online.)
It's even harder for the man who intercepted the Fail Mary throw, but was ruled not to have made the pick - defensive back M.D. Jennings - at least when reporters bring it up all week.
"A lot. Just about every interview I do, it comes up," he told TODAY'S TMJ4's Lance Allan.
Could the Packers be out for revenge in the contest, even as this is just preseason?
"It's not about revenge. This is a new year, a new team. It's all about going out, about getting better as a player and a team. We're trying to get ready for the regular season."
Lance asked Jennings if he circled the Seahawks preseason game in his mind as a game to get up for, even more than normal.
"I didn't think about it at all. You've got to go out there and focus. We talk about it all the time on a back end, having a short memory...when plays happen, you learn from them and move on."
Does he have a message for Golden Tate, the man whom referee Lance Easley ruled as the player who caught the football, leading to the Seahawks win?
"No, I don't...we've got to go out there and play Packers football."
