Aaron Rodgers Happy To Keep Trolls Quiet After Packers’ Week 2 Win Vs. Lions

The Packers came to play in Week 2


It was easy to understand why many questioned whether Aaron Rodgers really was committed to the Packers after Green Bay was shellacked by the New Orleans Saints in Week 1.

But it looked as if the quarterback was out to prove those naysayers wrong Monday night.

Green Bay bounced back with a 35-17 victory over the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field on “Monday Night Football.” Rodgers completed 22 of his 27 pass attempts for 255 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions.

After an offseason of rumors regarding Rodgers’ future with the Packers, as well as the lackluster Week 1 performance, the 37-year-old was happy to quiet the trolls.

For now, anyway.

“There’s so many overreactions that happen from a week-to-week basis,” Rodgers told reporters after the game, per ESPN. “So it’s nice to come out, have a good performance and get the trolls off our back for at least a week.

“… “People like to say a lot of (expletive),” he added, “and it’s nice to come back in here after a game like that.”

Had the Packers fallen to 0-2 to start the season, it would have been the first time they did so with Rodgers under center.

Green Bay now shifts its focus to a tough Week 3 game against the 2-0 San Francisco 49ers at Levi’s Stadium.
