Aaron Rodgers called out his teammates after Packers loss

The Green Bay Packers less than stellar start to the 2016 NFL season carried on yesterday as they went down 31-26 to the Indianapolis Colts.

The Packers fell to 4-4 with the loss, handing the Colts and Andrew Luck their third win of the season. 

Speaking after the game, Aaron Rodgers wasn't exactly pleased with the play of his teammates, and he let them know it very publicly.

"I don't understand it," Rodgers said, via ESPN. "I mean, this is what we get paid to do, is to bring it every week, and I hope the guys would say I bring it every week. I mean, I love this game and I bring energy."

"I'm not a rah-rah guy, but I'm a focused, enthusiastic player, and I don't know what the lack of juice was. You kind of felt it over the entire sideline. We didn't have the same kind of enthusiasm and encouragement that we had the previous two weeks."

"So we've got to look deep in the mirror there, because that's just not acceptable."

The Packers really need to start turning things around. Hopefully, for the sake of their star quarterback and the fans at least, that will come this week when they travel to take on the Tennessee Titans.

Currently sitting third in the NFC North, the Packers are only one game behind the Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions. In that tight-knit of a conference, a playoff spot isn't too out of the question. It just needs a good run, that will need improved performances.
