Packers wideout Greg Jennings had some memorable moments with Brett Favre as his quarterback. Now, with Favre potentially the Vikings’ next QB, Jennings told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune he is just happy that the all of the offseason drama has moved from Green Bay to Minnesota.
“It’s the beauty of the game,” Jennings said of the fact the Favre distraction won’t bother his team. “Last year we had a lot of ‘What ifs?’ That “if” was kind of floating around above everybody’s head. But this year there is no doubt about who’s the guy. We’re coming in solid, everybody knows what to expect from everyone else and there’s no excuse.”
