It is no secret that Chicago Bears fans absolutely hate Aaron Rodgers, not because he has said anything bad about the team, fans, or city, but because he has been a thorn in their side for years whenever they go against him.
With that said, it’s only natural that the idea of playing for the team he has tormented comes up in the midst of his eventual departure from the Packers.
Ahead of the Packers’ Week 6 showdown with the Bears on Sunday, Rodgers was asked if he could ever see himself playing in Windy City. As fully expected, he shot that down fairly quickly.
When asked about possibly playing for the Bears, he answered: “No. No. It’s just not gonna happen.”
“I’ve always enjoyed the city, enjoyed the fans, even though they haven’t enjoyed me,” Rodgers said when asked about Chicago, per Matt Schneidman of The Athletic.
Aaron Rodgers became the full-time starter of the Packers in 2008 and currently has a 18-5 record against the Bears. He also tried to name all 16 quarterbacks the Chicago Bears have started since he took over as the Green Bay Packers starting quarterback.
“Counting playoffs? Yeah, I could come close probably,” Rodgers said when asked the trivia question during his press conference Wednesday. “Jay Cutler. Kyle Orton. Rex Grossman. Mitch [Trubisky]…”
He then gave up.
“I’m giving up, I got a meeting to go to,” Rodgers said. “Can’t wrack the memory banks.”
For the season, Rodgers has 1,241 passing yards to go along with 10 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. He has recovered nicely since that Week 1 debacle against the Saints.
