Aaron Rodgers hasn't been looking like himself and ahead of tomorrow night's game against the Chicago Bears, the Green Bay Packers quarterback addressed his issues.
Following rumors regarding his girlfriend Olivia Munn possibly having a negative impact on his career, Rodgers said it was all about accuracy.
“I just think it’s accuracy,” Rodgers said on Tuesday during a briefing with reporters, via the Wisconsin State Journal. “I’ve missed a couple that I’m used to hitting. And (if) you hit those and you take away the throwaways, (if you’re) able to hit some things on some of those plays instead of extending and throwing the ball away, (then) we’re right where we need to be.”
“We’ve set the bar so high here for so long,” Rodgers continued. “We know that when we don’t reach those standards that we’re going to deal with questions like this for a stretch until we get this thing right. There’s a heightened sense of urgency but there’s definitely not any panic around here.”
Days ago, a source claimed the staff of the Packers was concerned about how Munn may be impacting her man.
“The Packers front office, teammates and others associated with the Packers are starting to question Aaron’s personal life i.e. Olivia and his estranged relationship with his family, and how it is starting to take a toll on his performance," a source told Terez Owens on Monday. "Coach McCarthy always stresses how important family is and they believe his head is not in the game."
