The Green Bay Packers defense underperformed against the Titans on Thursday Night Football (27-17) but it was their 15-year quarterback Aaron Rodgers who took the brunt of Lambeau Field fans’ frustrations.
The QB’s performance wasn’t exceptional, but it was solid and far from the worst thing the Packers displayed on TNF. Rodgers threw 24/39, for 2 TDs and no turnovers.
However, it was Rodgers who received audible boos throughout the game and was asked about it during the post-game press conference. The one-franchise player was taken aback.
How Aaron Rodgers reacted to beeing booed at Lambeau Field
“What’s it like hearing the boos?”, the journalist asked Rodgers. To which he simply replied one word after a nine second pause: “… Interesting.” A few second later, the quarterback looked at the reporter and with a slight smirk said: “That’s the best I can give you.”
In regards to the loss, Aaron Rodgers did not throw his teammates under the pass, and was very critical of his own play: “I have to throw the ball better than I did tonight. I threw some wobblers and just didn’t have the same type of consistent grip.
Coach Matt LaFleur didn’t “know what to say” after the performance
Green Bay (4-7) has fallen two games behind San Francisco (5-4) in the race for the NFC’s final wild-card spot, and their playoff hopes are looking very bleak. Which is far from where the team expected to be in Week 11 of the 2022 NFL season.
Head coach Matt LaFleur, in a post-game press conference said he was “extremely disappointed to put on a performance like that”, and didn’t “even know what to say.” The Packers will now have a daunting task of traveling to Philadelphia to take on the NFC East-leading Eagles (9-1).
