Fans still reeling over Packers game, Aaron Rodgers' post-game comments

NOW: Fans still reeling over Packers game, Aaron Rodgers’ post-game comments

GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- If you're still reeling from the Packers loss Sunday, you aren't alone.

Packers fans Sunday and Monday had very different tones.

A lot of the high energy became non-existent overnight, Packers fans were actually kind of hard to find. One bartender said they're probably in bed drinking Pedialyte still, but the ones who were out and about had a lot to say about the game and Aaron Rodgers' comments.

"Go Pack, go!," yelled Isaac Bustamante, rip rearing and ready to go at the start of the Packers vs. Saints game Sunday night.

People like Bustamante and Dan Lantsch say they'll go all the way.

"Honestly, I hope that the Bucks victory pulls down to Brewers victory and then we get a Packers win as well. So Super Bowl champs, like that's, that's what I want," said Lantsch.

Over on 1250AM The Fan, Ramie Makhlouf heard a very different tune from fans on the phone and Twitter Monday.

"People are not happy, people are not happy and there's a lot to not be happy about it. A lot of it falls on just like when things are good, they're gonna give the credit to Aaron Rodgers and the quarterback, and when things are bad, they're gonna put the blame on Aaron Rodgers and the quarterback," said Makhlouf.

Especially after his comments post-game.

"Didn't execute very well," Rodgers said. "One game, we got 16 to go."

"He certainly deserves a lot of that today after what was maybe his worst performance since he became the starter for the Green Bay Packers yesterday," said Makhlouf.

Fans like Tom Jahnke said if he doesn't want to be here, he doesn't have to be.

"It is a young man's game, and, you know, if he's not going to show some leadership and take charge of this thing, then maybe you should go back to 'Jeopardy!,'" said Jahnke.

Other fans like Praveen Sankrithi said they believe he'll do good long-term.

"He's not going to go out to Green Bay and not at least put up a fight in the season," said Sankrithi.

Another concern fans have -- how will businesses fair after a rough year last year if bars and restaurants don't have a good season ahead of them?
