Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers will take on the Philadelphia Eagles tonight after a four-game losing streak.
With a 4-6 record, the Packers haven’t been the 10-6 team fans saw last year, and throughout their struggles, Aaron Rodgers’ performance has been questioned. However, according to Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, Rodgers is still playing at a “high level.”
“They’re still putting up points, they’re still putting up yards, and they’ve still got Aaron Rodgers back there, who’s still playing at a high level,” Jenkins said, according to a report by the Inquirer. “Obviously, they’re not necessarily getting the results that they want in wins. But if you take the scoreboard off of the tape and just watch the game, their offense is still moving the ball… So I don’t think their record necessarily reflects what they’re doing offensively.”
As the outlet pointed out, Aaron Rodgers has been stellar in the past. In addition to a Super Bowl win, he has received two MVP Awards and been named to five Pro Bowl teams.
As Aaron Rodgers’ record with the Packers continues to worsen, rumors continue to swirl in regard to his relationship with girlfriend Olivia Munn and how the romance has allegedly impacted his strained relationship with his family, including his brother, Jordan, and his father, Edward.
Earlier this year, during episodes of the latest season of The Bachelorette, Aaron Rodgers’ brother, Jordan, who became engaged to Jojo Fletcher during the show’s finale, was seen discussing their broken relationship, as was Aaron and Jordan’s father. However, the men failed to mention the exact reason that they were no longer in touch with Aaron Rodgers. Then, weeks after Jordan and Jojo became engaged, an Us Weekly report claimed Aaron Rodgers’ girlfriend, Olivia Munn, was allegedly at the center of his family feud.
During an episode of The Bachelorette, Aaron Rodgers dad said “fame can change you,” and according to Us Weekly magazine, so can a famous girlfriend.
In their August report regarding Aaron Rodgers’ strained relationship with his family, an insider spoke to Us Weekly and claimed Munn was allegedly at the center of his family feud. Munn “has a strong personality and every meeting she has had with them has gone badly,” the magazine’s source explained.
“The family says [Aaron Rodgers] stopped talking to them.”
Although the insider claimed it was Aaron Rodgers’ decision to allegedly stop talking to his family, the source also claimed Rodgers says he and his family don’t speak because they reportedly don’t like Munn.
While both Aaron Rodgers and Olivia Munn have stayed silent in regard to his reported family feud, a source close to the actress claimed Rodgers’ decisions are his own.
“[Aaron Rodgers] makes his own decisions and wouldn’t be swayed by Olivia,” the insider explained.
In a more recent report, shared by the Bleacher Report weeks ago, it was alleged that Aaron Rodgers hadn’t seen his family in two years — and that he had reportedly missed his grandfather’s funeral. According to the report, people who were once close to Aaron Rodgers reportedly believe his strained relationship with his family has affected his game.
“Immediate family members don’t even have his cellphone number,” the report claimed.
And when Aaron Rodgers’ parents reportedly sent Christmas presents to him and Munn in 2014, the gifts were allegedly mailed back to them in February of the following year.
“The family was told they were no longer welcome in Green Bay. If Dad wants to attend a game now, he buys tickets on StubHub or goes through another player’s family.”
