Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says he has zero regrets over taunting the Chicago Bears and their fans during a week at Soldier Field eight weeks ago. After scoring a touchdown in the fourth quarter that ultimately sealed the win for the Packers, Rodgers yelled toward the Bears fans: "I still own you!" "I don't know that you can question a whole lot of what I said," Rodgers said on Wednesday, per ESPN.
"We have gotten the better of them the last, I don't know, 27, 28 times we've played them for the most part ... A lot of times in situations like this, the trash talk is only going to be used if you're getting after that individual that was trash-talking.
So in order to trash-talk, you have to have a lot of confidence in what you accomplished and what you're going to accomplish in the future. "At some point, what I said will be used against me -- that's just part of it.
But I have no regrets for saying what I said, and obviously I think the record kinda speaks for itself. But I get it. At some point that will be used against me. It is what it is. I don't regret saying it at all."
Rodgers set to take on the Bears again
The Packers are set to host the Bears at Lambeau Field this Sunday and Rodgers will be aiming to claim another win over the Bears.
"I'm sure they will have some comments maybe, but it's not untrue," Packers receiver Davante Adams said. "It's not like you can get too upset about the comment that 12 made. It is what it is. We'll see if they have anything to say on Sunday."
Rodgers has played through a fractured toe over the last few weeks. "I've got to see how it reacts on Sunday when I get back out there and play," Rodgers said when asked how his toe felt. "But this was really, really positive, the time to heal and not doing anything for now going on 10 days.
That's been really, really helpful. So we're hoping that we can get on the other side of this. "Again, we don't know until Sunday after the game and Monday how it's going to react to all the healing that's taken place and then the pounding that will happen on Sunday. So we'll see what happens, how it recovers on Sunday or Monday."
