Dick Butkus is really enjoying his time on Twitter.
The Green Bay Packers suffered a crushing loss at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers when Robbie Gould knocked through a 45-yard field goal as time-expired to lift the Niners to a 13-10 victory and send the top-seeded Packers home after such a promising regular season.
Chicago Bears legend Dick Butkus had a subtle troll of the Packers when he joked that the “orange juice tastes a little bit sweeter” for him.
He offered a theory about why Rodgers and Green Bay struggled, saying the reigning MVP looked “distracted.”
Rodgers finished 20/29 for 225 yards in the Packers’ 13-10 loss.
The 79-year-old just got verified Twitter and wasted no time taking shots at Rodgers.
“Now that I have the blue mark I can kick people off of the platform right,” Butkus wrote on Friday. “You hear me @AaronRodgers12.”
29 passes were thrown by Rodgers and 21 of them only went to Davante Adams and Aaron Jones. It’s not hard to see why the team had trouble moving the ball all night long.
No matter how it happened, Dick Butkus and the Chicago Bears fan base just love to see Rodgers flame out in the playoffs. I’m sure they are all hoping it spells the last of him in the division.
