Aaron Rodgers is under fire after the Green Bay Packers suffered a 27-10 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday.

The quarterback finished with 246 passing yards and a touchdown in the Week 6 game, but he also lost a fumble and failed to sustain long drives in the disappointing effort.

After what was initially a low-scoring battle, tied 3-3 at halftime, the Packers couldn't keep up with the Jets in the second half.

Rodgers was widely criticized by fans on social media throughout the game for his inconsistent play:

When is the next flt to Peru? Rodgers needs to be on it and go drink some more of that hallucinate medicine. Maybe someone could go grab it for him. He’s been really bad so far this season

What can the Packers get for Rodgers? Like a 2nd and a 2024 4th?

Are we sure that’s Aaron Rodgers out there? Not that comedian guy?

The quarterback did have some quality plays during the game, including a 25-yard touchdown pass to Allen Lazard.

Rodgers also entered with a thumb injury, which he suffered during last week's game against the New York Giants. The offensive struggles were still enough for some to call for backup Jordan Love to see the field.

Matt Reynoldson @Matt_Reynoldson

At this point, why not try Jordan Love? Nothing in this offensive game plan is working. This performance is lifeless and the team is scrambling.<br><br>The MVP is hurt. Put 10 in.

Peter Bukowski @Peter_Bukowski

We might need to see Jordan Love in the second half

Not Matthew (wink) @larsonmatt2

You CAN NOT CONVINCE ME the offense would look worse with Jordan Love right now

Ryan Horvat @RyanHorvat

If Rodgers hand is this messed up - get Jordan Love ready. This is why you moved up for him. No?

Al Alfredo @riccitann

Hate to be the one to say it, but put in Jordan Love now!

Jacob πŸŽƒ @NotionsOfJacob

I am ready to begin the Jordan Love era.

Love eventually came into the game down 17 points in the final minutes, and the crowd showed its approval.

Matt Schneidman @mattschneidman

Biggest cheers in a while when Jordan Love is introduced as the QB. Hoo boy.

Even though Rodgers won MVP in each of the last two years, fans can turn quickly after back-to-back losses to the Giants and Jets.

The Packers are now 3-3 on the season, with the offense seemingly looking worse each week. Green Bay will look to get back on track against the struggling Washington Commanders in Week 7.
