Aaron Rodgers Uses 1 Word To Describe How He Feels About Playing In London

Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers

This Sunday, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers will play overseas. 

It's the second week in a row an NFL game will be played in London. Roger Goodell and Co. are clearly trying to make the sport more international. 

However, some players have a tough time with the NFL's scheduling idea. Well, except for Aaron Rodgers.

The Packers quarterback is "excited" for Sunday's game in London. 

“We’re all excited,” Rodgers said. “I think the reason I said I wanted to go over early was just to experience a little bit of that culture, to be able to get out and see some sights and interact with fans and … shoot, go to a pub and have a Guinness or whatever the local brew is. That’s what we all want to do, those of us that want to go over early.”

Packers cornerback Rasul Douglas feels different, though. 

He played in London several years ago while with the Eagles. He hated it. 

It f—ing sucked,” Douglas said, via Ryan Wood of PackersNews.com. “You don’t get to do nothing over there. You just f—ing get on a plane, get over there and f—ing practice, and then you play a game. You get back on a plane and travel f—ing eight hours somewhere else.”

Rodgers will enjoy the London trip. Most of his teammates clearly won't, though.
