Packers’ Rodgers, Saints’ Brees refuse to blame replacement officials for starts
METAIRIE, La. – Two days after the Green Bay Packers lost to Seattle on one of the most bizarre endings in NFL history, quarterback Aaron Rodgers didn’t sound a player who had moved on quite yet.
“I’m not going to mince words – it’s difficult,” he said. “You learn in this league that every loss is difficult, even more when it shouldn’t have been a loss.”
For the third week in a row, replacement officials have dominated the headlines and Rodgers’ Packers were at ground zero for the latest gaffe. Officials missed a blatant pass interference foul on a Seattle receiver and then questionably ruled simultaneous catch on what appeared to be an interception.
And yet, Rodgers wouldn’t place blame on the officials, instead putting on himself and his offensive cohorts.
“There’s a lot of blame to go around and I think for us, it’s better to focus on blaming ourselves because we put ourselves in that position than trying to blame the refs even though that wrong,” Rodgers said.
