The drama in Green Bay does not seem to be slowing down any time soon. After an embarrassing 38-3 defeat today to the New Orleans Saints, one would think that Aaron Rodgers would be a bit more dismal, especially after he was benched for poor play only to be replaced by backup quarterback, Jordan Love. However, he simply wrote it off as just “one game” with little to no emotion when speaking to the press.
The cadence in Rodgers voice during the post-game press conference came off as very non-chalant. His attitude about the game does not help considering he essentially abandoned his team during the offseason and early preseason workouts because he was upset about how the team did not take his thoughts into consideration about the NFL Draft earlier this year and who the Packers should select. During the press conference, Rodgers seemingly came across like this embarrassment of a loss was not a big deal at all. You can check out the press conference below.
The question is now, will Jordan Love be starting when the Packers go on to play Detroit next week in the Monday Night prime time game? The assumption is that Rodgers will still be the starter, but I don’t expect head coach Matt LaFleur to wait nearly as long to bench Rodgers again if his gameplay is similar to this weeks. Aaron Rodgers should be absolutely embarrassed with his performance today, and if he showed even the slightest bit of emotion during the above press conference, it would be easier to forgive him for his terrible play today and what he put his team and it’s fans through during the off-season.
