Ex-Packer LeRoy Butler rips Aaron Rodgers, whose world seems to be crumbling around him

It's going from bad to worse for the Packers QB.

Honest to the football gods, we're starting to feel a little bit bad for Aaron Rodgers. 

Ok, not really, but it seems like ever since the Packers quarterback walked into A-Barr and snapped his collarbone last season everything has gone awry.

He was set to bounce back better than ever according to a lot of preseason prognosticators who picked the Packers to reach the Super Bowl, but that's not the case after the Pack was sacked by the Bears in a playoff-eliminating loss on Sunday. 

After the game, Packers great LeRoy Butler took a shot at Rodgers on Twitter, saying: "I mean really if you can’t out play Mitch Trubisky, how good are you?"

Statistically, Rodgers still looks good with 3,974 passing yards, 23 touchdowns and just two interceptions, but people watching him play have seen him miss a ton of wide open receivers, and it might've been the difference between a win and a loss on Sunday. 

"There's missed throws for sure," Rodgers said, via ESPN. "But some of the ones you probably think are missed throws maybe we're just not on the same page."

It was so negative after the game that reporters were asking interim Packers head coach Joe Philbin if Rodgers would play the final two weeks or if he'd be benched to ensure his health and give backup QB DeShone Kizer a look. 

Rodgers tweaked his groin during the game and it tightened up on him during the second half, but a below the belt injury is just the latest low blow the 35-year-old former MVP has been on the receiving end of this season.

His brother Jordan Rodgers called him out on Twitter for not calling their mom when she was preparing to evacuate her California home during last month's devastating wildfires, and ex-Packers and Vikings receiver Greg Jennings aired some locker room laundry on Fox Sports saying Rodgers "messed" him up and "disturbed" him during his final season in Green Bay. 

Those embarrassing events came after the Packers released his good buddy, wide receiver Jordy Nelson, and parted with one of his favorite assistant coaches before the season began. 

And if you don't have your best buds with you in Green Bay, what are you supposed to do, drink alone?
