Packers fans fire back at Justin Jones on Twitter

Justin Jones struck a nerve with Packers fans

The pitchforks are out in Green Bay after Justin Jones shared some harsh complaints about Packers fans with the media on Tuesday.

When asked about the new-look NFC North on the first day of veteran minicamp, the Bears defensive tackle took the opportunity to shred our neighbors to the north.

“They’re really shitty,” Jones said bluntly. “They’re just freaking obnoxious. Just yelling about all sorts of things that don’t even matter… half of them don’t even know football. It’s so weird to me.”

Jones’ displeasure stems in part from Aaron Rodgers’ departure. Players took note when Rodgers said he owns the Bears, and Jones wanted the opportunity to prove him wrong this year.

“I wish he played one more year with Green Bay, honestly… I wanted to go back up there and I wanted to play them and I wanted to beat them and I wanted him to see it.”

With Rodgers or without Rodgers it is very clear that Jones has the Week 18 trip to Lambeau Field circled on his calendar.

“I want to go out there and I want to beat the hell out of them on their field, and I want to hear the boos. That’s what I look forward to.”

Packers fans, of course, came out in droves to defend themselves and their former quarterback on Twitter. And they clearly never learned how to take constructive criticism.

There were many of variations of this tweet, and the answer is that he's someone important enough for you to tweet about.

You will never be able to prove he’d win the ninth.

Don't make us list all of your failures, Zack.

For the record, most Bears fans do not claim this take.

Someday our broken clock will be right, though.

Technically, it can’t not age well because it’s a hypothetical.

He’s lucky Bears fans can’t read.
