Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has struggled recently, there’s no debating that. But why?
According to one ESPN writer, it could be problems at home.
In an article titled “Five reasons why Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is struggling”, Rob Demovsky suggests that it could be the lack of superstar wide receiver Jordy Nelson that’s contributing to Rodger’s struggles. It could be changes to the play-calling. It could be the fact that he’s hiding an injury.
Or, it could be problems with his girlfriend, actress Olivia Munn?
“A longtime NFL agent told me recently that when he sees one of his top-performing clients play differently, as Rodgers has of late, the first thing he wonders is if something is going on in his personal life. There’s no indication that Rodgers’ relationship status has changed. Lions reporters said they spotted Rodgers’ girlfriend, actress Olivia Munn, at Lambeau Field on Sunday. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that professional athletes have lives away from the field, and you never know what could be going on in their personal lives,” Rob Demovsky wrote for ESPN.com.
Munn is none too thrilled with this characterization, and has hit back on Twitter.
“Playing it fast & loose w/the journalism @RobDemovsky. Your professional skills are lacking… you must be having personal problems at home,” she wrote.

When a Twitter follower told Munn not to feed the trolls, she responded by saying,
“The trolls can have their comments, it’s not them I’m calling out, it’s the journalists. Thanks for the love though.”
