Rodgers fires back at critics

Posted: Updated:
GREEN BAY (WKOW) -

The Green Bay offense has not performed to it's usual standards. In particular, Aaron Rodgers has not been posting the numbers fans have grown accustomed to seeing from the All-Pro. He currently ranks 27th in the NFL in passing yards and 25th in passer rating. Still, Rodgers is not ready to hit the panic button. In fact, he fired back at the media on Wednesday.

"No offense, but you guys are predictable. We knew when we came in here, and I knew I had this Wednesday, I knew what the line of questioning was going to be. You guys have a job to do. You scrutinize. You analyze. And you make opinions based on how you feel a team is progressing or not progressing, or playing. We appreciate that. But inside we don't think the same way that you guys think. We are very honest about our performance and about the way we are playing and about what we've gotta do. But we don't worry about the outside opinions. We have the confidence that we can get this thing going in the right direction. This is not an end of the world type moment, everything is coming down on top of us. We knew what was going to happen when we came in here, because we have set a standard for so long, myself, our team, of playing at such a high level. When you have a couple disappointing performances, we know what's coming. We appreciate what you do, but we are not ultimately judged or worried about your opinions of us."

Rodgers and the Packers will make their home debut on Sunday at noon against Detroit.
