Aaron Rodgers talks about not hosting the Thanksgiving party this year

While talking with the Packers QB, the former punter joked and asked him why he is not the host this year. In reply, Rodgers said, I got steamrolled, I think. There’s never really been too many competing parties, but this year the Crosbys, you know those kickers, they rose up and said not this year; this year is ours.

“So I was assuming the backyards, the Cobbs, would kind of triple host this thing in my house, gladly, like I have done in the past. But the Crosbys kinda jumped in and bogarted all of our guest lists,” he added.

As for the Packers, they have only won 4 out of their 11 games so far this season and are currently sitting in the third position in the NFC North division behind the Vikings and the Lions.
