Packers’ Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams warn those who mock quarterback’s belt celebration

As the saying goes, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. In Robert Quinn’s case, it’s anything but sincere or flattering,

Quinn is no stranger to mimicking Aaron Rodgers’ belt celebration; it’s something he has done it in the past. Sunday night, during the Packers’ 45-30 win over the Bears, the Chicago defensive end againย mocked Rodgers’ famed championship belt gestureย following a sack of the Green Bay QB in the first quarter.

The Bears would take a 27-21 lead into halftimeย before seeing the Packers storm back and score 24 consecutive points.

Rodgers weighed in on the gimmick infringement after the game:

“It hasn’t ended well for the most part,” Rodgers said.

Packers wideout Davante Adams weighed in on Mondayย with a warning to those who dare mock the famed celebration:

“Question . . . when has mocking the belt ever worked out well?? Lol,” Adams tweeted.

Adams has a point: The history of players to mock Rodgers’ belt celebration is lengthy but largely unsuccessful.ย 

Earlier in the season, Seahawks safety Jamal Adams strapped on the belt after grabbing a pick against Rodgers (Rodgers called it an “early Christmas present.”)ย It was all for naught: The Packers would win the game 17-0.

“I didn’t see him do it, but there hasn’t been a lot of positive things that come from guys doing it over the years,” Rodgers said following the game.

On Sunday, the Packers quarterback continued to stake his claim as part-owner of the Bears: He finished with 341 yards and four touchdowns on 29-of-37 passing and, most importantly, another W in the ledger.
