Aaron Rodgers took an apparent dig at Russell Wilson’s comments on God and football.
“It’s a top-down mentality. It’s being very confident in your preparation,” Rodgers said in reply to a question from a reporter.
“And then getting help from God. I think God was a Packers fan tonight, so he was taking care of us.”
It appears a subtle jab at Wilson, who gave credit to God after the Seahawks beat the Packers in January’s NFC championship game.
From The MMQB’s Peter King on Jan. 19:
I found Wilson afterward, and asked him about the four picks, and going from the worst game of his life to the most exhilarating in the span of eight minutes of game time. “That’s God setting it up, to make it so dramatic, so rewarding, so special,” he said, alone for a moment in the locker room before heading out for the night. “I’ve been through a lot in life, and had some ups and downs. It’s what’s led me to this day.”
Rodgers said on his radio show later that week that he doesn’t think God cares about the outcome of football games.
