Who knew that one of the biggest storylines from Aaron Rodgers' debut with the New York Jets would be his beef with Giants outside linebacker Jihad Ward? Yeah, this has all come as a major shock in recent days.

On Thursday, Rodgers decided to fire back a bit at the pass-rusher, who claimed that AR12 and his teammates were laughing after a brutal hit was laid on Bobby McCain. Rodgers even used an expletive to respond to Ward, saying he's 'making s*** up.' This is only going to anger Ward even more.

This Rodgers-Ward rivalry began when Ward gave Rodgers a nice little forearm shove. Rodgers took exception to that hit and understandably so. Even more words were exchanged after Rodgers hooked up with Garrett Wilson for a touchdown.

Ward called out Rodgers on Wednesday and now the signal-caller has delivered a response. This is all making the regular season showdown in late October that more interesting. People can't wait for that matchup to arrive.
