Aaron Rodgers is not about that kind of talk.
The Green Bay Packers Quarterback heard the talk even before someone relayed what Green Bay Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander said in the locker room after Sunday’s upset loss to the New York Giants.
And he didn’t like it. Alexander, the Pro Bowl cornerback, said he wasn’t worried about the defense despite its role in the second-half meltdown that led to Green Bay’s 27-22 loss in front of a pro-Packers crowd at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. At least not yet.
“I ain’t worried, but if we lose next week, then I’ll be worried,” Alexander said, referring to next Sunday’s game against the New York Jets at Lambeau Field. “But it’s a new situation for everybody. New circumstances, sleep patterns. It’s a whole adjustment here in London.”
Talked with Jaire Alexander postgame about the defense: “I ain’t worried, but if we lose next week, then I’ll be worried.”

Rodgers was not a fan of his message. And he wasn’t just singling out Alexander, apparently he heard it from others teammates as well.
“Frankly, I don’t like all this conversation about losing next week,” Rodgers said. “I’m a firm believer in the power of words and manifestation. And we’ve got to check ourselves on that, because talking about that is not winning football. There was conversation about it in the locker room, and I don’t like it. Ja’s my guy, but we don’t need to be talking like that.”
