Bears' DL Houston Calls Aaron Rodgers 'Arrogant'

One current member of the Bears' defense doesn't like Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers -- probably because Rodgers boasts a 150-2 overall record against Chicago (not really, but you get the point).

The actual reason why Bears pass-rusher Lamarr Houston dislikes Rodgers is due to his alleged arrogance. Well, that and Rodgers' belt celebration.


"He's a little arrogant for me. He's a little too arrogant. He's a cheesehead. I'm a Bear," Houston told ESPN's SportsNation on Monday.


Shortly after the Bears beat the Packers at Lambeau Field on Thanksgiving and Brett Favre night, Houston said something similar.

"I didn't really look at him after [the sack], because I don't give two flying [expletive] about him," Houston said after a one-sack, seven-tackle performance, per ESPN. "I really don't like that guy."


Houston recorded eight sacks last season, even though he was coming off a torn ACL. So, despite the Bears' upgrades this offseason, Houston should factor into their plans moving forward. Perhaps, if he sacks Rodgers this year, Houston should steal Rodgers' belt move, which hasn't led to a torn ACL -- unlike Houston's own celebration.
