Green Bay Packers superstar Aaron Rodgers was asked, what do you say to your Green Bay Packers teammates after winning just one of the season’s first three games?

Sounds about right.
Things have not gone all that well for Rodgers and Co. so far, and as the Packers (1-1-1) look ahead to hosting the Buffalo Bills next week, there is plenty to work on.
“We’ve got to clean our own house,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “It’s sloppy right now.”
Rodgers said he expects to start against Buffalo after again dealing with an injured left knee, which he hurt in Week 1.
He wore a bulky brace on his left knee against Washington, and he came up hobbling a bit after some plays where he moved around in the pocket or scrambled for a gain.
“I got a little banged up,” said Rodgers, who was 27 for 44 for 265 yards passing with two TDs, “but finished the game.”
Added Rodgers: “It can be painful at times moving around, especially lateral movement. But I’m going to be out there if I’m up to it and try and get this thing back turned the right direction with a win next week.”
Let’s hope for Aaron’s sake he’s not mixing his scotch with pain pills.
