Aaron Rodgers can certainly walk the walk, but everybody was happy about him talking the talk.
On Sunday, the Packers took a late 24-14 lead over the Bears following a Rodgers fourth-quarter rushing touchdown. The reigning MVP then got up off the ground and decided to pass on some verbal jabs to Bears fans watching in the nearby stands.
“I still own you! I still own you!,” Rodgers screams to the Bears fans following the score.
Aside from Bears fans, not many people could say that they disliked what he said. However, just like everything in life, there will still be some who find issues with anything.
During his weekly appearance on the ‘Pat McAfee Show,’ Rodgers spoke on society and how weak it has gotten if he is being blasted for trash-talking fans that do the same to him every week of every year he has played n the league.
“Are we getting that soft as a society where we can’t have a back & forth now.. somebody can pay for a ticket & say whatever the hell they want which they should be able to but the ONE time I say something back I’ve disrespected an entire city & organization”
“There’s a PC woke culture that exists,” Rodgers told Pat McAfee Tuesday afternoon. “And there’s a cancel culture at the same time and it’s based on people’s own feelings of maybe personal miserability or distaste for their own situations or life or just the enjoyment of holding other people down underneath their thumb.”
“Pick a topic, from my family to my leadership style…they run with these stories and when I respond to it…then I’m being sensitive,” Rodgers explained on SiriusXM’s Pat McAfee Show, adding that he’s able to ignore all of it.
“There’s a game within the game,” the Packers quarterback continued. “If the player abides by the rules of the game, he’s part of the game. The rules of the game are you must acquiesce with the woke mob at all times. However, when you live above the game, the game does not exist and that’s where I’m at.”
Following the game, Rodgers made his way to the tunnel, with a matter-of-fact statement to a stadium hand: “They want me to get out of here fast.”
While speaking with reporters, Rodgers said he “blacked out” after seeing a Bears fan flipped him the double bird after the score.
With two more TDs on the day, Rodgers now owns 57 touchdowns passes against the Bears, most against any opponent.
The win knocked the Bears down to 3-3 on the season.
