Aaron Rodgers playing for the Packers against the Vikings on Sept. 11, 2022.

The New York Giants defeated the Green Bay Packers 27-22 on Sunday. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw for 222 yards and two touchdowns in the loss.

After the game, Rodgers (seen above in September) made it clear that he’s a “firm believer in the power of words and manifestation” who did not appreciate comments from wide receiver Jaire Alexander saying he wasn’t worried unless the Packers lost next week as well.

“Talked with Jaire Alexander postgame about the defense,” Scheidman reported. “[Alexander said,] ‘I ain’t worried, but if we lose next week, then I’ll be worried.'”
“I relayed that quote to Aaron Rodgers as the premise for asking him if he’s worried about the offense. He said no. Asked why not, his full answer:”
And frankly, I don’t like all this conversation about losing next week. I’m a firm believer in the power of words and manifestation. And we got to check ourselves on that. Because talking about that, that’s not winning football. There was conversation about that in the locker room and I don’t like it.
Ja [Alexander] is my guy, but we don’t need to be talking like that. I understand there is a reality in this game, there’s a win and a loss every single game. But there’s also reality in life that what you’re putting your energy towards, that’s where your focus is going to go. So I’m not going to address the prospects of losing up here, other than we just lost this game.
Rodgers and the Packers are next in action Sunday, Oct. 16th, when they host the New York Jets.
