Packers de Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers – .

GREEN BAY, Wisconsin – The last time Aaron Rodgers saw the Chicago Bears he was speaking to them and their fans at Soldier Field about the power he held over them with his memorable “I still own you!” ” to boast after his touchdown run in another Green Bay Packers victory.
Eight weeks later, they meet on Sunday evening at Lambeau Field.

When asked if he expected any offensive language or retaliation in return from the Bears players, he was keen to say that he had directed him to the fans who were “giving me the bird.” .

Either way, it looks like he wouldn’t change that.

“I don’t know if you can question a lot of what I said,” Rodgers said Wednesday. “We got the better of them the last time, I don’t know, 27, 28 times we played them for the most part… A lot of times in situations like this, the trash talk is only going to be used if you you pick on that person who was talking about garbage. So, to talk about garbage, you have to have a lot of confidence in what you have accomplished and what you are going to accomplish in the future.

“At some point what I said will be used against me – it’s only part of it. But I don’t regret saying what I said, and obviously I think the record speaks for itself. But I understand. At some point that will be used against me. It is what it is. I do not regret having said that at all.

Rodgers has won five straight wins against the Bears and is 22-5 overall as a starter against NFC rival North of the Packers. It’s the third-best winning percentage (.815) by any quarterback with at least 25 starts against a single opponent since 1950, behind only Tom Brady against the Buffalo Bills (32-3, .914) and Ben Roethlisberger against the Cleveland Browns (24-3-1, .875).

“I’m sure they might have some comment, but that’s not wrong,” Packers wide receiver Davante Adams said. “It’s not like you can be too upset by the comment 12 makes. It is.” We’ll see if they have something to say on Sunday. “

Rodgers did not train on Wednesday, continuing to sit down to rest his fractured pinky finger. Coach Matt LaFleur said it was not yet clear whether Rodgers would train on Thursday or Friday. Rodgers didn’t practice at all until the most recent game, the Nov. 28 win over the Los Angeles Rams.

The Packers (9-3) took time off last week, and Rodgers opted out of surgery and instead used the rest to see how much the injured toe can heal before the stretch run.

“I have to see how he reacts on Sunday when I come back and play,” Rodgers said when asked how his toe felt. “But it was really, really positive time to heal and do nothing for now for 10 days. It was really, really helpful. So we hope we can get to the other side of the issue.

“Again, we don’t know until Sunday after the game and Monday how it’s going to react to all the healings that have taken place and then the hits that will happen on Sunday. So we’ll see what happens, how it recovers on Sunday or Monday. ”
