Aaron Rodgers clearly did not like Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson thanking God for beating the Packers last year in the playoffs.
Aaron Rodgers appeared to take a shot at Russell Wilson after the Green Bay Packers defeated the Seattle Seahawks 27-17 on Sunday night.
Rodgers, who was 25-of-33 for 249 yards and two touchdowns in the win, spoke to the media after the game and thanked a higher power for the victory.
“God was a Packer fan tonight,” said Rodgers. “He was taking care of us.”
Rodgers was trying to hide a grin as he made his religious references and could barely contain himself.
So why the notion he was taking a shot at Wilson? Remember the sobbing, on-field interview the Seahawks quarterback gave immediately after beating the Packers in the NFC Championship Game in January?… Wilson also spoke of God’s impact on that comeback victory with Peter King later in the week, saying “That’s God setting it up, to make it so dramatic, so rewarding, so special.”
Rodgers reacted to that comment in an answer to a fan question at the time: “I don’t think God cares a whole lot about the outcome. He cares about the people involved, but I don’t think he’s a big football fan.”
Right. Everyone knows God loves baseball most.
But seriously, if God liked the Seahawks so much why would He allow them to pass the ball on the one yard line instead of just handing it to BeastMode. I guess that gets into a whole free will discussion, right?
I guess, what I’m trying to say is hey guys, leave God out of your tiff. K?
