Aaron Rodgers claims Darryl Tapp bit him

Twelve years ago, Mike Tyson bit a piece out of Evander Holyfield’s ear during a boxing match.

And Seahawks linebacker Darryl Tapp apparently took a page out of the Tyson playbook last October, against the Packers.

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers claims that Tapp bit him.

Bit him.

You know, with his teeth.

“Yeah, he bit me through my long sleeve that I was wearing,” Rodgers
said Wednesday, per Greg Bedard of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.  “There wasn’t a whole lot of words
spoken.  I looked down and my arm was hurt and it felt like a bee sting. 
I was looking down and he was biting my arm so I had to get his teeth
off my shoulder.

“Luckily I was wearing a long sleeve so I don’t know if he actually [broke the skin].  I had a bruise for the rest of the season.  Other than
that I was good.”

Given that they played on October 12, that was one hell of a bruise.

Bedard has since found video of the incident, at 9:20 of the fourth quarter.  Though Tapp can’t be seen getting his Twilight on, Rodgers can be seen pushing Tapp’s head into the turf and then looking at his arm.

In Tapp’s defense, maybe Rodgers had been shaving with butter.

  1. I would love to talk trash about the Seahawks and their fans being whiny babies just getting their teeth but Aaron Curry’s wife and my wife are close friends so I will refrain.

  2. he must have some pretty big teeth to get a chunk of rodgers’ arm, through a facemask. either that or aaron rodgers is wrong/exaggerating/assuming/senile.

  3. If Rodgers had to get his teeth off of his shoulder, how did he have a bruise on his arm, and what did long sleeves have to do with it if he was bitten on the shoulder and not the forearm? And who has a bruise for almost 3 months? And wouldn’t you be able to tell if the skin was broken after taking off the long sleeves?
    I’m sure Tapp bit him though, pretty easy to do with a full facemask, chinstraps, and mouthguard. And people call Favre a drama queen.

  4. He was just thinking what every other Vikings defensive lineman thought this year: “Mmm, fresh blood!”

  5. He bit through his long sleeve, through his helmet, and through his mouthpiece?
    No. Absolutely not. I’m not a magic bullet theory kind of guy, sorry Rodgers.

  6. everyone bashing Aaron Rodgers is jsut sick of his supreme talent and good decision making, cause ya know you play football professionally and all…..sybian!

  7. This is funny as hell! What the hell? I know crazy stuff goes on down on the ground and under piles, but wow. Id like to see what question was asked for Rogers to bring this up. He should have brought it up when it happened. Not to whine about it, but so everybody can see what kind of bitch this guy must be to actually bite somebody. btw, I HATE gb. Still doesnt make it unless funny/messed up.

  8. Maybe in addition to shaving with butter he had warmed his uniform in the oven before gametime…

  9. Fan of Football,
    Aaron isn’t known for being a whiner or a guy who talks a lot to the press, unlike the former GB QB. That guy is still flapping his jaw every chance he gets and throwing his own coach under the bus.

  10. “I’m sure Tapp bit him though, pretty easy to do with a full facemask, chinstraps, and mouthguard. ”
    Are people serious? I especially can’t believe people are mentioning the facemask. Probably takes 2 seconds at most to solve all the issues you just mentioned there. Its not like its rocket science to unstrap the chinstrap and tilt the angle of the helmet on your head.
    Put on a helmet and try it.

  11. Fan of Football and Magik Man: The two dumbest posters on these boards, hands down. Lock it up.
    Rodgers doesn’t whine. Do you honestly think your hero with the gray hair and diva attitude would have said nothing being protected by THAT line?

  12. Majik Man-I’m sure Tapp bit him though, pretty easy to do with a full facemask, chinstraps, and mouthguard. And people call Favre a drama queen.

    Yes, because mouthguards can’t come out of a mouth once put in and it’s impossible for a helmet/facemask to be pushed back/up. Idiot.

  13. Looking at the pics on Bedard’s blog (specifically the last one) I don’t really see how a bite would even be possible through that kind of facemask…What do I know, I’m just a commenter on a website.

  14. I feel you Fred look at these haters bet they will really be hating when the diva herself is finally playing the banjo on a porch in hickville, ms and whatever joke of a qb is playing for their beloved(since they started winning) biqueens who still will not have won a superbowl hahahahahah but i guess we cant talk shit because they’ve won the meaningless division for two years in a row hahahahahahahah way to go queens get those regular season wins cause history know

    Thats for the “we dont give a shit, but clearly this makes you feel good psychologically” comment of the day

  16. I have that game. And at about 9:40 Rogers says something to Tapp, pushes he’s head down as he gets up and then looks at his LEFT BICEP. Hope that clears things up.

  17. If you listen to what some of the old-school players say happened in a typical NFL scrum back in the day, this really shouldn’t come as a much of a surprise.

  18. also @osterhouse
    I actually get what you’re saying, you think I was trying to make myself feel good, by saying I am friends with Aaron Curry, I am not nor have I ever met him. I was just taking a nice jab at all the crying Seahawks fans out there who still claim that Super Bowl XL. Usually my wife tries to keep me from doing this. But obviously you try to make yourself feel better by belittling others via blogs. Hooray for you, you must be proud.

  19. To everyone calling me an idiot for saying there’s a good chance Rodgers is jumping the gun a bit…
    Did you read the article and look at the pics? I did, and his helmet is clearly on during the time in question, the pic where Rodgers is pushing his head down. And yes, some facemasks are easy to move around, but not the full cage style Tapp is wearing. In order for Tapp to bite anyone, he would have had to totally remove his particular helmet.
    I get it, you’re still pissed that Favre is gone and he dominated the Packers, and his new team has locked up the division. But just because you’re bitter doesn’t mean you need to throw logic out the window. Read the article, look at the pics, and use your heads. I know that Packer fans have trouble thinking for themselves, but try just this once.

  20. Should have went for the right hand thumb. Now if it would have been a puker doing the biting. . .he would have been going for the zipper. Because that is what the puker fans could understand

    LMFAO, yea because A-Rod causes drama like Brent. Who do you REALLY think you are fooling? Reading your frivolous blogs makes me happy that Florio allows children to contribute to PFT!

  23. Rodgers, whining about a bruise … from last year. Beautiful.
    Our fearless leader !!!!
    Heaven help us.

  24. Erin Rodgers to the press:
    “WAA WAAAA! Somebody bit me several months ago!”
    “WAA WAAAA! some little kid flipped me off on the way to practice today!”
    “WAA WAAA! Brett Favre never returned my calls!”
    “WAA WAAAA! Erin Andrews turned me down on a date!”

  25. @ FoF
    Merry Christmas dude.
    Hope Santa brings you through puberty.
    Man I wish school would hurry up & get back in.

  26. @ Majik
    After looking at the pictures I see your point–it is a full face mask. However, if you look at the first one where Rodgers is pushing his helmet it looks like his helmet is about halfway off possibly. Personally, I think his facemask probably pinched his arm against the ground & Rodgers mistook it for a bite. That would also create more of a bruise, especially one that would hang around for 3 months.

  27. “Erin Rodgers to the press:”
    and this is why people never take Viking ‘fans’ seriously. They think it’s still cool to change player’s names to girl names.
    Brett Favre to the press:
    “Why don’t you hire my best friend as coach? Waaaa”
    “Waaa. Go get Randy Moss! Waaaa”
    “I wanna play again!! Waaaaa”
    “Waa Ted Thompson hurt my feelings.”
    “Waa why is everyone so mean to me”
    “Waaa. Who stole my tractor? Waa”
    I can’t wait until Viking fans go through next season with the great Sage Rosenfels. Then they will be the one’s crying hiding under their rock.
