Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier is tired of hearing Greg Jennings talk about his former quarterback and told the wide receiver as much on Saturday.

Jennings was critical of Aaron Rodgers in a Star Tribune article last week, continuing a back-and-forth that has gone on between the two since Jennings left the Green Bay Packers to sign as a free agent with the Vikings in March.

"Don't get me wrong, '12' is a great person," Jennings told the paper, choosing to not call Rodgers by name. "But when you hear all positives, all positives, all positives all the time, it's hard for you to sit down when one of your teammates says, 'Man, come on, you've got to hold yourself accountable for this.' It's hard for someone to see that now because all they've heard is I'm doing it the right way, I'm perfect. In actuality, we all have flaws."

Frazier told reporters that he wants Jennings focused on the Vikings and not the Packers. 

"Yes I did, and hopefully there will be no more reporting on that with Greg Jennings," Frazier said. "We had a little conversation about that, so we're moving on."

Continued Frazier: "We're the Vikings and we want to talk about us and what we're trying to get done here. He understands that. That's where our focus has to be. We have so much work to get done. We don't really want to be looking at and describing other teams, other teams' players. It's us. We got to focus on us. He's good with that."
