The Green Bay Packers had a rough season starter against the New Orleans Saints. With a defeat so embarrassing, the franchise and the veteran quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, faced lots of criticism throughout the week.

Although this did not stop the Packers fans to stop supporting them. The true and loyal fans stepped up before the ‘Monday Night’ game of the Packers against the Lions. One of those fans was the ‘Olympic Legend’ and the ‘Fastest Man On Earth’, Usain Bolt.

Yes, the Jamaican beast is supporting the Green Bay Packers in the 2021 season. Usain Bolt took to Twitter to express his raw emotions for the franchise and uploaded a video saying, “Yea!! Almost game time. If you know you know, I’m ready”.

Sitting comfortably on the couch while sporting the jersey of Aaron Rodgers (12) and a distinct pre-game chatter coming from behind, these were the ‘Monday Night Football’ scenes shared by the legend athlete.

This only proves that Aaron Rodgers has an enormous fan base, which supports him through thick and through thin. And presumably, the support did pay off as the Packers took over the Lions with a double-digit victory of 35-17.

The surreal bouncing back by the Packers is a sign that Aaron Rodgers and his associates will not slow down after the defeat. In fact, they will come back even stronger game after game to make his last season with the Packers count.
