Former Packers safety LeRoy Butler stirred the masses after he seemingly took aim at Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers completed 25 of 42 passes for 274 yards and one interception in a 24-17 loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday at Soldier Field.

Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky went 20-of-28 passing for 235 yards and two touchdowns in the NFC North-clinching victory.

Green Bay, which fired coach Mike McCarthy on Dec. 2, was eliminated from the playoff chase Sunday.

Butler, who helped the Packers win the Super Bowl with former quarterback Brett Favre during the 1996 season, tweeted Monday that he was not ripping Rodgers.
