Aaron Rodgers Takes Shot at Atlanta, Insinuates Fake Crowd Noise
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was in the midst of his press conference on Friday, when he commented on the atmosphere in the Georgia Dome.
He’s well aware that he would going into a raucous atmosphere in Sunday’s NFC Championship game against the Atlanta Falcons, but he’s not quite sure if all that noise is coming from the fans.
“It’s really loud in there,” Rodgers said, via Sports Illustrated’s Greg Bishop. “Whether that’s all natural or not remains to be seen.”
The Falcons were stripped of a fifth-round pick in the 2016 NFL draft and fined $350,000 after they were caught pumping fake crowd noise over the PA system while the opposing offense was on the field during the 2013 and 2014 seasons.
Green Bay lost 33-32 at Atlanta in Week 8.
