The media is looking for answers to the Green Bay Packers three-game losing streak and that means ESPN writer Rob Demovsky had to come up with a post trying to figure out why Aaron Rodgers is struggling. Rob managed to come up with five possible reasons. The first four were football-related issues.
Possible off-field issues?: A longtime NFL agent told me recently that when he sees one of his top-performing clients play differently, as Rodgers has of late, the first thing he wonders is if something is going on in his personal life. There’s no indication that Rodgers’ relationship status has changed. Lions reporters said they spotted Rodgers’ girlfriend, actress Olivia Munn, at Lambeau Field on Sunday. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that professional athletes have lives away from the field, and you never know what could be going on in their personal lives.
And Olivia Munn went off.
Playing it fast & loose w/the journalism @RobDemovsky. Your professional skills are lacking… you must be having personal problems at home.

She also went after the Washington Post and Fox Sports, who loves Aaron Rodgers and wishes he was in every NFC Championship for the next 25 years.
This is all being fueled by a comment on the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Monday where one person thought Rodgers’ struggles started when Olivia started talking about their sex life. And now look where we’re at. This has turned into a week-long war that now has Munn tweeting about her real life, something that doesn’t happen that often.

Let’s look at the three losses: Rodgers throws for 77 yards in a loss to Denver; Rodgers is forced to throw 48 times in a shootout with the Panthers; Rodgers throws 61 times in loss to the Lions. His TD to INT ratio in those games is 6:1.
