Former Packer LeRoy Butler slams Aaron Rodgers with ‘Trubisky’ taunt

Not everyone considers Aaron Rodgers a top-tier quarterback.

As the Packers fell to the Bears on Sunday, 24-17, with Chicago wrapping up the NFC North in the process, former Green Bay safety LeRoy Butler took aim at Rodgers’ talent.

“I mean really if you can’t out play Mitch Trubisky, how good are you?” Butler tweeted, jabbing both Rodgers and the Bears quarterback. “Aaron’s only job is to OUT play the other QB! Agree? You will never win scoring 17 points.”

Rodgers completed 25-of-42 pass attempts for 274 yards, without a touchdown, and threw his first interception in 402 attempts. He also was sacked five times in Sunday’s outing, which dropped the Packers to 5-8-1 and officially eliminated them from the playoff hunt.

Butler, who was part of the Packers’ championship squad with Brett Favre in 1996, played all 12 seasons of his NFL career in Green Bay, though his tenure did not overlap with Rodgers’.

Unlike the Packers of the past, the 2018 squad will finish with another losing record for the second year in a row. Team brass started to clean house early, firing head coach Mike McCarthy after 13 seasons following a loss in Week 13 to the Cardinals. But even without McCarthy, the offense has not come around.

Following McCarthy’s firing, former Packers assistant Winston Moss has taken a few shots of his own at Rodgers, who he joked “has been the head coach for the last nine years.” Moss was let go by interim head coach Joe Philbin.
