Obama Greets Packers; Wants Rodgers Trade To Bears

President Barack Obama indirectly joined a list of Jay Cutler haters while greeting the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers at the White House on Friday.

During his salute to the Pack, the Chicago Bears fan paid a compliment to Super Bowl XLV MVP Aaron Rodgers and took a subtle swipe at quarterback Jay Cutler.

“If I’m a part owner, what I’m thinking is we should initiate a trade to send (Aaron) Rodgers down to the Bears.”

The president is perhaps a bit bitter towards Cutler after Chicago’s NFC title game loss to the Packers back in January when the quarterback failed to return to the contest after suffering a knee injury.

Besides the Rodgers comment, the other main attraction came while Obama addressed Packers cornerback Charles Woodson.

“Basically Charles has been giving me a hard time for months. Now I know what every NFL quarterback knows, don’t mess with Charles Woodson.”

During the playoffs, the 2009 NFL Defensive Player of the Year took exception to Obama preference towards seeing his hometown Bears in the Super Bowl over the Packers.

The only down note for the Packers today came when linebacker Desmond Bishop could not make the White House trip after forgetting his ID.
