It is just the beginning of May but the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers hatred for one another is still in mid-season form. Bears linebacker Lamarr Houston appeared on ESPN’s SportsNation and said that Aaron Rodgers is “a little too arrogant.” Houston seems to be annoyed by Rodgers’ touchdown celebration saying,
He’s a cheesehead. I’m a Bear. He’s a cheesehead. But I have a lot of respect for his game, I will say that. He’s a great quarterback. As a player, I have a lot of respect for him … but the whole championship belt thing kind of gets on my nerves.
Houston has gone after Rodgers in the media before. The Bears beat the Packers last Thanksgiving night and Houston finished with nine tackles, a sack, and a fumble recovery. After the game, Houston told reporters exactly how he feels about Rodgers.
I didn’t really look at him after [the sack], because I don’t give two flying [expletive] about him. I really don’t like that guy.
Now who’s ready for some football. The Bears and Packers meet for the first time in week 7 at Lambeau Field.
