Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers wasn't interested in trading barbs Wednesday with former teammate Brett Favre. But Rodgers did wag his finger at the Atlanta Falcons, the Packers' Week 5 opponent and a familiar foe.
"We were a better team than those guys," wide receiver Roddy White said after the Falcons' 48-21 loss, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "We went out there, and we didn't perform at our highest level.â
Rodgers didn't single out White's remarks during a conference call, but he said he was upset with what he heard after the game.
"I don't care to expand a whole lot on that," Rodgers said. "I just think that some of the general comments that I heard that that game was kind of a fluke, maybe. I would just say that I think you need to respect your opponents. We definitely respect the Falcons. ... I just felt like that maybe the respect level, just as far as those comments were concerned, maybe weren't there at times."
