Greg Jennings has succeeded in one thing: making Aaron Rodgers address his leadership style.

The new Vikings WR, along with retired Packers WR Donald Driver, have offered various critiques about Rodgers in the offseason.

On his radio show today, Rodgers addressed it:

"I feel like I'm going to continue to lead the way I've been leading, and I think guys respond very positively to that and appreciate my style of leadership," Rodgers said on his radio show. "There's a reason I'm on the leadership council. There's a reason I'm voted a captain. I stand by those things, and you learn all the time about leadership. It's a constant educational process to gather information about your teammates and try and find the best ways to inspire those guys and push those guys and get the most out of them.

"But I'm very confident in the way I lead. I think [coach] Mike [McCarthy] believes in my style of leadership, and I think the guys respond favorably to that. It's not going to change. I enjoy what I'm doing. I love my job. I love the game of football and put a lot into it and expect to get a lot out of it as well.

But don't take our word for it ... have a listen yourself!
