In all, Jennings said, Rodgers was doing a remarkable job under the circumstances.
"He's second to none," Jennings said. "I'll give you a statistic: He has one pick. One pick, and he's been hit more than any quarterback in the league."
Packers coach Mike McCarthy brushed off Jennings' comments Wednesday, and didn't want to delve into the problems the Packers had in their first four games.
"We've talked about it and it's been addressed," McCarthy said. "When your team statistics are in order, your individual statistics will be in order. That's where I am at on that."
McCarthy recently noted that Rodgers shoulders a significant responsibility for the team's sack total because he has held on to the ball too long in some situations.
Rodgers agreed, but said it would be counterproductive to radically change the way he plays.
"I'm playing quarterback the way that I know how to play quarterback: instinctually, trusting my feet, trusting my time clock," Rodgers said. "And that's going to happen at some point. I'm going to hold the ball too long, maybe feeling like I'm not under pressure, not seeing the pressure. But I'm not going to change."
