Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers delivered a message for nervous Packers fans who might be worried about the team’s 1-2 start this season, telling them to relax.
"Five letters here just for everybody out there in Packer-land: R-E-L-A-X," Rodgers said on ESPN Radio. "Relax. We're going to be OK."
Green Bay has started 1-2 for the third season in a row. The two previous seasons it rebounded and made the playoffs.
Rodgers has completed 63 percent of his passes this season for 697 yards, five touchdowns and one interception. Green Bay’s offense is averaging 289.3 yards per game, 28th in the NFL.
Rodgers was asked if the team’s slow start had anything to do with his collarbone injury, which forced him to miss seven games, or his reported relationship with actress Olivia Munn.
"Everybody's wondering that? Those are so idiotic it's not even worth responding to either one of those," Rodgers said.
