Aaron Rodgers appears to be getting fed up with his team's lack of passion and effort.
The Green Bay Packers' quarterback admitted that his team played badly in their 31-26 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. He believes the team is not playing with the same level of energy that they usually do, and knows the team needs a spark.
"I have no idea [why], I don't understand it," Rodgers said via Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. "This is what we get paid to do. I would hope the guys would say I bring it every week. I don't know what the lack of juice was. We've got to look deep in the mirror there because that's not acceptable."
There were mistakes on offense, defence, and special teams on Sunday and the entire team looked out of sync. This loss is particularly hurtful to the Packers, as they missed out on a chance to share the NFC North lead with the Minnesota Vikings.
"It's everybody's job," Rodgers said. "Different guys bring that energy. We've all go to be a little mentally tougher. I don't understand the way the sideline was after the first play (the kickoff return for a touchdown). We've got to be a little tougher. How you deal with adversity says a lot about the kind of team you've got."
