Aaron Rodgers Blows Up On Teammates, Says Some ‘Shouldn’t Be Playing’
The team hasn’t won a game since beating the New England Patriots in week four in overtime.
There have been some mental errors, which were heavily criticized by Rodgers.

“Guys who are making too many mistakes, shouldn’t be playing,” the 38-year-old said on The Pat McAfee Show.
“Gotta start cutting some reps. Maybe guys who aren’t playing, maybe give them a chance,” he added.
Funny enough, backup quarterback Jordan Love’s name was trending after the news escalated on Twitter.
In particular, there were many satirical responses.
For example, one user said: “Never thought I’d see him openly hand the reins over to Jordan Love.”
Love has been with the organization since 2020 when he was selected with the 26th pick in the first round.
At the time it was a polarizing selection because the Packers just came off an NFC conference championship loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Many thought the Packers should draft Rodgers as an offensive playmaker – but it went with his potential future successor at quarterback instead.
To make matters worse, the Packers traded star wide receiver Davante Adams in the offseason for a first and second-round pick.
Now the Packers rank 23rd in points per game.
Rodgers has justifiably been frustrated – but despite that, he signed a three-year deal worth more than $150 million in the offseason.
But it will be interesting to see the backlash Rodgers gets from his coaches and teammates in the coming days after his comments.
But if the Packers continue to lose, the team might turn to Love to see what he’s got.
The Packers will have a tough matchup Sunday against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday Night Football next week.
