Aaron Rodgers beating the Bears is inevitable. Even in games where he’s mediocre. So it wasn’t a surprise when the Packers delivered a 24-14 loss to Chicago in a game that was for the taking by the Bears.

There were many frustrating things from Sunday’s loss, including the offense’s inability to score points and the defense struggling against the run. But the most frustrating was Rodgers’ comment to the Bears and their fans after he scored a game-clinching touchdown run late in the fourth quarter.

“All my (expletive life), I own you,” Rodgers shouted to the crowd. “I still own you.”

While Rodgers wasn’t wrong — he’s 21-5 against the Bears in his career — there are some that aren’t happy with his taunting the Bears and their fans. That includes former Bears center and Hall of Fame finalist Olin Kreutz.

“I’d like to punch him in his face,” Kreutz said on the Mully & Haugh Show on 670 the Score on Monday morning.

After the game, Rodgers explained what prompted his “I still own you” comments, where he essentially deflected blame for his actions in the moment.

“Sometimes you black out on the field — in a good way,” Rodgers said after the game. “I looked up in the stands and in the front row all I saw was a woman giving me the double-bird. So I’m not sure exactly what came out of my mouth next.”

Kreutz called it a “lame excuse.”

“We all know this is the kind of guy you are,” he said. “You’re competitive, and that’s the way you feel, and you’ve won a lot of games here at Soldier Field. Just because you’re right doesn’t make you right for doing it.”
