Aaron Rodgers says Green Bay Packers would be 'in big trouble' if they 'freak out' over one loss

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- People who gave Aaron Rodgers grief about his seemingly laid-back approach after the Green Bay Packers' blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints in Sunday's season opener should know this: He was talking to his teammates more than he was talking to those on the outside.

"If we're starting to freak out after one week," Rodgers said Thursday, "we're in big trouble."

Rodgers prefaced it, of course, by acknowledging that the Packers have to perform much better than they did in their 38-3 loss to the Saints at a neutral site in Jacksonville, Florida -- a game that was one of the worst of Rodgers' career and his largest margin of defeat in games he's started and finished.
