08:02 AM ET 11.21 | Thirty-five points and a win weren't enough for the Packers Sunday. Aaron Rodgers walked into the Green Bay Packers' media auditorium on Sunday for his postgame press conference with a somber look on his face. "I'm just frustrated," Rodgers said. "I didn't throw the ball very well. I'm not going to speak for anybody else, but personally I just didn't play my best game, so I've got to look at myself first. I've got to play better." This more than anything is an indication of how good the Packers have become. They put up five offensive touchdowns in a 35-26 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Lambeau Field and boosted their record to 10-0, yet Rodgers looked like he had just lost the game.

Whining when you are 10-0 makes you look like a tool.

When you settle in and say, "Wow, we're great," that's when you lose a game that you should have won.

Rodgers knows that he and his team can't lose focus. Pedal to the metal, all the way to Indy.

This one had "trap game" written all over it. Take the win and start worrying about Detroit.

Keeping focus is great but yeah whining when you're 10-0 is kinda punk

Cheer up Aaron, you didn't break your thumb

how is it whining when you acknowledge you didn't play well? actually he did play well, just not Aaron Rodgers well. it's better than saying, "wow, I cooked everybody out there! we're unstoppable!" nothing wrong with admitting when you could've played better. whining would be blaming the less than stellar performance on the refs or somebody besides yourself. he didn't do that. he manned up.

Wow, I wish I could be deflated if I lost,..............GROW UP!

November 21, 2011  08:43 AM ET

How is 5 Ofenssive TDs not playing well? It just sounds like whining to me!

November 21, 2011  08:43 AM ET

Hes probably just upset that some Statefarm agents stole his touchdown dance.

Didn't see the press conference, but it sounds like insincere humility to me.

Absolutely. And disrespectful to your opponent. somewhere along the way you have to acknowledge that the other guy had something to do with what happens.

Maybe he's complaining about doing a better job because he knows that the defense isn't going to stop anyone anytime soon. That was indeed a trap game like Devi8ed said and Green Bay could've lost it. That's one hell of a defense the Packers have to give up almost 400 yrds(career high) to Josh Freeman. Nice run by Blount too, BTW!
