08:02 AM ET 07.13 | Fans in the Motor City aren't the only ones wondering about whether Jim Schwartz's crew can keep things together. [Jennings] joined "NFL Total Access" on the NFL Network on Thursday to discuss the offseason happenings with his team as well as the rest of the NFC North. When asked about his biggest concern with division rival Detroit Lions, Jennings smirked, saying the answer was simple. "Can they maintain their composure, both on the field and off the field?" Jennings responded. "They're a very talented team, but they have struggles on the field containing their composure, and definitely, the things we've heard of, them being in the media with off-the-field problems and off-the-field issues. Can they maintain their composure?"

Short answer? No.

Jennings is talented but I think he probably needs some interview tips from Rodgers how to avoid controversy in an interview. Think it all you want but the first sign of anything for a Packers teammate and this will come back.

I don't think anyone in the NFL will even notice this interview. They're too busy flushing drug residues out of their systems before training camp starts.

Prove your smarter than the football, then I may listen to your opinion about yourself and your team.

Long form...no chance.

It's hard to believe that with their HC attitudes will change.

All that talent and no smarts. Too bad Johnson doesn't have a more reliable team around him.

As TxHeat said, it starts with the HC. He sets the tone.

Nothing wrong with this statement...why does everyone want the antiseptic sterile answers? I like taking a little nudge at a division rival. Isnt this how it should be? Brings an extra something to the game..its not like he called anyone out, just minor kidding, chill out ppl

As bulletin board material goes, this is pretty minor and certainly no surprise to anyone. If the Lions allow Jennings' comments to get under their skin it will become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Amen

Jennings has earned enough respect of his peers to smack Detroit around with words. Not to mention with Jim Schwartz running the show, I would fully expect Detroit to be getting a ton of Personal Foul. The guy is a ticking time bomb of anger.

+1. Tell it like is so long as your tactful about it. There's nothing wrong with what Jenning's said or he said it.
