Aaron Rodgers' plan for getting over Cowboys loss involves alcohol
The Packers quarterback had some interesting postgame plans
After a rough day at work, sometimes there's only one way to get over: make a stiff drink and pretend the day never happened.
"Have a glass of scotch and chill out a little bit," Rodgers said, via ESPN.com.
Scotch has a pretty good way of solving almost every problem, so you can't really blame Rodgers for turning to the bottle. That being said, this guy's an All-Pro quarterback, so he also has something else planned besides drinking.
"Watch the film," Rodgers said of what he's going to do. "I'm my biggest critic, and I look at this as finely as I look at every other game and improve."
Rodgers was uncharacteristically bad against the Cowboys. Not only did he throw one of the ugliest interceptions of his life against Dallas, but he also lost a fumble on a first-and-goal play from the Cowboys' 1-yard line in the third quarter. If the Packers had scored on that drive, they would've cut the Dallas lead from 20-6 to 20-13.
Things actually got so bad in Green Bay on Sunday that fans started booing the Packers offense.
"Look, we're upset, they're upset, it's part of it," Rodgers said of the fans. "It's not the first time, probably won't be the last time."
Through six weeks of the season, the Packers have one of the worst offenses in football (ranked 26th), and one of the worst passing games (ranked 25th). However, Rodgers isn't thinking about any of that right now, he's just thinking about his next opponent: the Chicago Bears.
"The only silver lining is we play again in four days," Rodgers said. "Hopefully wash this taste out of our mouths pretty quickly."
Apparently, quarterbacks have a thing with washing bad taste out of their mouth. Besides Rodgers and his scotch, we've seen Cam Newton use floss this year and then on Sunday, we saw Tyrod Taylor using some mouthwash.
It's nice to know everyone cares about their personal hygiene.
Anyway, the Packers game against the Bears kicks off at 8:25 p.m. ET on Thursday and will be televised by CBS.
