Russell Wilson gets support from Aaron Rodgers’ brother after Rodgers’ post-game comments

By  | 

It all started last year after the NFC Championship Game in which Quarterback Russell Wilson praised God for the win over Green Bay. After a tough game in which Wilson was sacked four times and threw four interceptions, and the team trailed 16-0 in the third quarter, the Seattle Seahawks faked a punt and converted what was supposed to be a field goal into a touchdown. The Seahawks came back to win it, securing their space in the Super Bowl.

This week Green Bay once again met the Seahawks team, this time at Lambeau. Green Bay took home the win, and in a post game interview, Quarterback Aaron Rodgers said, “God was a Packers fan tonight,” obviously poking fun at the comments by Wilson last year.

In his response, Wilson told KIRO-AM radio in Seattle that “Everybody has the right to their own opinion…I know for me, I’m just grateful that God has given me the opportunity to play the great game of football. I’m so grateful.” He went on to say, “I know one of the things my parents always taught me was just to continue to remain humble in your victories and your losses. I think that’s just the thing that I’m grateful for, just to be able to play the game of football. I love it. Like I said, everybody is entitled to their own opinion.”

Yes, Wilson took the high road. And it turns out that Aaron Rodgers’ brother, Jordan, agrees. He posted the following to Twitter:’

My parents taught this as well, way to take the high road @DangeRussWilson

He followed up after a fan asked if he was complimenting Russell for taking the high road. He said:

I actually was. Thank you

It looks like Jordan Rodgers has since removed the comments from Twitter, in place of this:

San Diego resident for over 10 years, I now call this beautiful city home. Originally from the Bay Area, I'm a California girl at heart. I love the outdoors, fitness, food, and a good craft beer (from San Diego of course).
