Aaron Rodgers, the legendary quarterback who played for the Green Bay Packers and now is with the New York Jets, famously yelled to Bears fans during his long winning streak against them, “I own you.” And he’s not about to let Bears fans forget it.
In the recent Week One game between the Packers and the Bears, Rodgers texted Jordan Love, his successor, to remind him that he’s now the Bears’ new owner.
“I did send J a text, right after the Bears, when they pulled away I sent him a message because I wanted him to see it when he got back to his phone,” Rodgers told Pat McAfee. “I said, ‘Congratulations on keeping the ownership in place.’ That was pretty awesome for him.”
Rodgers went 24-5 as a starter against the Bears, making him one of the most successful quarterbacks in NFL history. Love, who took over from Rodgers this season, is now 1-0 against them.
Rodgers is working on his rehabilitation
Rodgers, who was traded to the Jets this offseason and suffered an Achilles tendon injury in Week One, is now rehabbing in California. However, he’s keeping a close eye on the league and staying in touch with old teammates. He’s also hoping to see Love continue the ownership of the Bears.
Rodgers’ text to Love is a testament to his competitive spirit and his desire to see his former team continue to dominate their rivals. Despite being traded away from Green Bay, Rodgers still has a deep connection with the team and its fans. His text message shows that he’s still invested in their success and wants to see them continue to win.
In an interview with McAfee, Rodgers also spoke about his recovery from his injury and his plans for the future. He said that he’s taking things one day at a time and focusing on getting back to full health. He also expressed his gratitude for the support he’s received from his fans and teammates.
“I’m just trying to stay positive and focused on my rehab,” Rodgers said. “I know it’s going to be a long road, but I’m ready for the challenge. I’m grateful for all the support I’ve received from my fans and my teammates. It means a lot to me.”
