Aaron Rodgers ‘Misty-Eyed’ After Post-COVID Packers Win, Avoids Talking Vaccine ‘What-Ifs’

After more than a week of hate from the liberal media over having not received the COVID-19 vaccination, Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers shut them up with a major win. Rodgers missed the last Packers game due to having COVID-19, but savored his win on Lambeau Field admitting he was a bit “misty-eyed” as he was greeted with cheers.

Rodgers was 23-for-37 with 292 passing yards and an interception, as Green Bay defeated the Seattle Seahawks 17-0. “I just don’t take these things for granted, walking off the field as a winner. Just walking out with Preston [Smith], who I have so much love and appreciation for, and then hearing that type of response from the crowd, it was a little extra special today,” Rodgers said, via the Packers’ website.

Fox News reports Rodgers created a firestorm with his explanation for being unvaccinated and his reasoning for seeking homeopathic treatments to be “immunized” instead of vaccinated against the coronavirus. He said on his last “Pat McAfee Show” appearance he took responsibility for misleading people.

“Everybody has an opinion and I understand that it’s a very polarizing issue for some individuals but I’m just focusing on the support that I got and it was deep and wide, and greatly appreciated,” Rodgers said Sunday night, via ESPN. “There’s always going to be criticism in this world. I don’t define myself by the criticism but I understand it’s a part of this because this issue is definitely polarizing. But again, I’m just so deeply grateful for all the people that reached out.”

When he was given a hypothetical suggestion about the possibility of missing the Super Bowl because of his vaccination status, Rodgers wasn’t biting on a “what-if” question.

“I don’t really like playing the what-if games. So what I do know is I have more than two months right now where my protocol’s not testing every single day. So that’s kind of the only thing I’m thinking about. I don’t like playing the hypothetical game. Obviously, you’d love to be playing the second weekend in February and hopefully we’re in that position,” he concluded.
