(670 The Score) Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers got a chuckle out of former Bears center and current Score analyst Olin Kreutz proclaiming he wanted to punch Rodgers the face for screaming “I still own you!” at the Soldier Field crowd after scoring a game-clinching touchdown in Green Bay's win Sunday.
On Tuesday, Rodgers shot back at Kreutz while laughing about the entire situation.
“I saw Olin Kreutz said he wanted to punch me in the face,” Rodgers said on the Pat McAfee Show. “Look, that is to say, I don’t know Olin, I respect him, he played in the league for a long time. But are we getting that soft as a society that we can’t have a back and forth now? I mean, somebody can pay for a ticket and say whatever the hell they want, which I think they should be able to, it’s fine. But the one time you say something back to them, that gets caught on a hot mic – which like I said, there’s a lot that gets said from time to time – now I disrespected an entire city and organization and my own organization?”
Rodgers improved to 22-5 against the Bears in leading the Packers to a 24-14 win Sunday. As for trolling the crowd, Rodgers added, “My teammates and organization really loved it.”
