Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers were eliminated from the NFL Playoffs thanks to an incredible comeback effort from the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional Round.

After the loss, there were plenty of memes and comments mocking Rodgers with references like “Throw Rogan” and “Qaaron Rodgers,” and the quarterback definitely noticed.

During his weekly appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers commented on the reaction and said fans were rooting against him and the Packers because of his COVID-19 vaccination stance.

“There were a ton of people tuning in, rooting against us for one reason and one reason only,” Rodgers said. “It’s because of my vaccination status and them wanting to see us lose so they could pile on.”

That’s just part of the internet culture for fans.

Any time a team loses, there will be plenty of memes and jokes — just ask the Dallas Cowboys. It just so happens that Rodgers gave Twitter some extra ammunition to work with.

But now that Rodgers is out of the postseason, the big question is whether he will return to Green Bay next season.

If he does leave, Rodgers will be happy to know he gets to drop the Marjorie Taylor Greene Bay nickname.
