Why Green Bay Packers fans are laughing at the Detroit Lions this week

Green Bay Packers fans — and fans across the NFL in general — are laughing at the Detroit Lions this week.

The Packers and the Lions play on Sunday night in a massive game. If Green Bay wins, they make the playoffs. If they lose, Detroit or the Seattle Seahawks (if they beat the Los Angeles Rams) makes the playoffs.

Detroit is apparently trying to motivate themselves by pretending that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been disrespecting the Lions this week.

 

 

In all actuality, Rodgers has actually been complimentary of Detroit.

Here’s a sampling of what Detroit players have been saying.

Rodgers actually said that the Lions have been playing “as good as just about anybody in the league the last nine weeks”.

 

 

The Athletic’s Matt Schneidman is correct — the Lions are going full Michael Jordan here. They’re just making stuff up to try to get motivated for a big game.

 

 

Whatever works I guess. But everyone in the NFL knows that Rodgers wasn’t talking trash about Detroit this week. Quite the opposite.

Maybe it’ll work for the Lions. We’ll find out Sunday night. But there’s one thing they need to realize — Rodgers and the Packers can find motivation in the most unlikely places as well. And I’m sure they’ll take note of the Lions twisting Rodgers’ words this week.
