After the top-seeded Packers went crashing out of the playoffs in the divisional round on Sunday, Twitter wasted no time in serving up jabs for Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
The three-time MVP — who may be en route to a fourth honor — put himself in the crosshairs of many with a turbulent season, after sitting out mandatory minicamp amid significant strife between quarterback and franchise, testing positive for COVID-19 after making misleading statements about his vaccination status, and making various controversial comments throughout the season.
So when Rodgers and the Packers failed to score a touchdown after the opening drive in yet another playoff disappointment, the social media reaction was swift and often ruthless.
