Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers went viral on Sunday for shouting “I still own you!” during the Bears game on Sunday afternoon. It turns out there’s a bit more to the story.
Rodgers made the comment after finding the end-zone on a six-yard rushing score to take a touchdown lead over the Bears in the fourth quarter. After scoring, Rodgers turned his attention to Bears fans and shouted “I still own you!” It wasn’t unprompted, either.
Plenty of Bears fans were giving Rodgers the bird following his go-ahead touchdown run. That’s why he said what he did. Point, Rodgers.
Take a look.

It looks like Aaron Rodgers had every right to say what he did.
The 2020-21 NFL MVP spoke about the play and fan’s reactions during his postgame press conference.
“Sometimes you black out. In a good way. I’ve definitely blacked out from a concussion, which isn’t a good way. … 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,” Rodgers said.
