Look, Aaron Rodgers may not be a Green Bay Packer for much longer. But don’t tell the quarterback he doesn’t rule over his rivals.
Since he first took over the starting job in Green Bay back in 2008, Aaron Rodgers has been a nightmare for opposing NFC North teams. He is 15-9-1 against the Minnesota Vikings. He is 18-5 against the Detroit Lions.
And now, he is 22-5 all-time against the Chicago Bears, and he let their fans know that. When the future NFL Hall of Famer reached the endzone on Sunday for a crucial late-game score against Chicago, he couldn’t help but lose himself in the moment.
That doesn’t look like a guy who is looking to leave Green Bay soon, but that energy could be more due to Chicago Bears fans than his love for the Pack. In fact, that’s what Rodgers credited in his post-game press conference.
“Sometimes you black out on the field,” Aaron Rodgers said. “In a good way. I’ve definitely blacked out from a concussion which isn’t a good way, but I looked up in the stands and all I saw was a woman giving me a double bird so I’m not exactly sure what came out of my mouth next.”
Fair enough, Aaron, fair enough.
As alluded to above, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers got out of Chicago with a 24-14 win, with his rushing score being the final points Green Bay put up. The win propelled the Packers to a 5-1 record on the season, with all five wins coming after a opening week loss.
Meanwhile, the Bears look to move on as they drop to 3-3. While rookie QB Justin Fields has shown serious signs of promise, Chicago is currently on a mediocre hump.
The (Possible) Reason Why Aaron Rodgers Has Grown a Mullet
It seems like whatever Rodgers does is a talking point. The quarterback is one of the most recognizable names in sports so that makes sense. Plus, the man is a former Jeopardy! host, which we still have a hard time believing was a real thing.
However, the subject of Rodgers’ mullet has been a favorite this year. Primarily, it’s been jokes about the hair, and understandably so. Mullets are always glorious, but Rodgers has an edge to his with his probable departure from Green Bay.
But, interestingly enough, the QB says the mullet isn’t about a new attitude. It’s about his Halloween costume.
“I have a month until Halloween and this has been a year in the making for my costume. I’m not going to give it away, but it’s somebody who is a hero of mine who has longish hair,” Rodgers said on the Pat McAfee show.
We still don’t know for sure which superhero that is, but it’s clear that whatever the costume is, it’s going to be absolutely incredible.
