Aaron Rodgers is getting the Jay Cutler body language treatment

After starting the season 6-0 and looking like the class of the conference, the Packers are in a rut. Green Bay has lost three straight games, and things are starting to get ugly.

The frustration continued to bubble over for Aaron Rodgers on Sunday during their loss to the last place Detroit Lions. Rodgers, who has played well even during his team’s recent struggles, could be seen visibly upset after the Packers appeared to mismanage the clock.

This isn’t the first time this season that Rodgers was caught on camera with what many would describe as poor body language. Last week, the All-Pro quarterback was caught throwing the team’s tablet after seeing a replay.

For years, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was compared unfavorably to Rodgers. From his record against the Packers to his inability to make those around him better, Cutler clearly isn’t in the same category as Rodgers.

However, after Rodgers’ most recent sideline complaints, football fans are starting to give the Packers quarterback the body language treatment normally reserved for Cutler.

Rodgers and Cutler will square off for their second meeting of the season in two weeks when the Bears head to Green Bay for their Thanksgiving matchup.
