Video: Did Aaron Rodgers just take a shot at Russell Wilson with God comment?

Revenge, the Green Bay Packers insisted last week, would not be a motivating factor during Sunday night's game against the Seattle Seahawks.

But, with an impressive 27-17 win over the Super Bowl runners-up secured, it looks like Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers may not have been able to put last season's heartbreaking NFC Championship game behind him after all.

Religion's role

This after Rodgers, speaking to the post-game media, appeared to take a shot at his opposite number, Russell Wilson, when referencing God's role in the outcome of the game.

As alluded to by Joe Giglio, host of the WFAN Sports Radio show, Russell Wilson claimed back in early 2015 that God had set up the dramatic circumstances that allowed Seattle to overcome Green Bay in the playoffs.

Subtle shot?

Were Rodgers' comments last night, then, a subtle dig at the young quarterback?

It would certainly appear so when you consider the veteran's original response to Wilson's religious reasoning back in January. Then, Rodgers suggested God had more important things to do than worry about football results.

“I don’t think God cares a whole lot about the outcome,” he said on January 20th. “He cares about the people involved, but I don’t think he’s a big football fan.”

With 2015 now two weeks old, and the Green Bay Packers off to a perfect 2-0 start, you might think that the Wisconsin franchise are ready to move on from the disappointing end to 2014. For Rodgers though, it looks like some wounds take longer to heal than others.
