Aaron Rodgers on Ndamukong Suh: “That goes back a long time”

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Buccaneers defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh have a long history, and today they once again went at it.

Suh was flagged for roughing the passer on Rodgers on one play, sacked him after that, and then the two could be seen exchanging words multiple times during the game. Afterwards, Rodgers acknowledged that his rivalry with Suh goes way back.

“That goes back a long time and I’m sure the cameras caught some stuff,” Rodgers said.

The most memorable moment between the two players came late in the 2014 season, when Suh stepped on Rodgers’ leg in a December game at Lambeau Field. The NFL initially suspended Suh for that, but he later appealed — arguing that he couldn’t feel his feet because it was so cold and didn’t realize he was stepping on Rodgers — and had his discipline reduced to a $70,000 fine.

Nothing like that happened today in Tampa, but Suh did blast Rodgers a couple of times in a one-sided Buccaneers win. Perhaps they’ll see each other again in the playoffs.

  1. Such didn’t play dirty today – just nasty. That was a vintage performance. Respect to the Bucs.

    Suh is the dirtiest player in the league.

  3. I’m a Packers fan; they got worked today. Rodgers was bad. The two picks totally changed the game. Twice against good teams on the road, San Fran and Tampa, they got punched in the mouth and had no counter.

  4. Meh, nobody goes 16-0 in the NFL … at least not very often. Just get up, dust yourself off, and get ready for next Sunday.

  5. The camera caught Rodgers flop and look at the refs for a call that he normally gets but they walked away.

  6. Hey Rodgers you end zone poser. Take responsibility for your crap play just one stinking time!

    Just like Bakhtiari flopped at the end of the Detroit game last year to draw a penalty. The Packers ate like a European Soccer team

  8. The Bucs have had the leagues top run defense for the past two seasons. When Suh was with Detroit they had a great defense too. Suh doesn’t get the respect he deserves.

  9. I’m a transplanted Bucs fan whose fanship followed Brady, and Gronk, to Tampa, so I’ll now always want “New England South” to win all their games, but Suh has been a dirty player since his days at Nebraska. He’s a punk. Glad to have his GAME on Tampa, but that’s about it. Big jerk. Great game today. Nice to see Rodgers on his butt all day. No doubt who the real GOAT is. Go TOM!

  10. It was his leg wasn’t it? Back when Rodgers had that calf injury, Suh was backing up away from the line of scrimmage for no reason. He totally did it on purpose. couldn’t want Suh to do it to a more deserving guy though! Haha.

  11. Hey Rodgers, your whining and posturing “goes back a long time”……when all said and done , you won’t be remembered for qbr, or 70k yards passing, or your 3 Hail Marys…….it’ll be for 1 super bowl vs. 6 for Brady.

  12. the lionsnearly signed him to a cap killing cotract then miamu offerred him like 5m more so he turned down a team that had been very good to him because if he left money on the table he would not be able to face his children- in his case future children.

  13. Think if I was a big ole green bay lineman I’d be getting up in Suh’s face and getting him out of my QB’s face.

  14. Tampa Bay the place where all the old guys go to play out their last few years in the warm weather. Hopefully the Geritol will not run out before February 7th. As for Suh, he just gets mad every time he sees green and yellow. Because of all the games he lost to them before. On a serious note that was a great win for the Bucs, I guess they are for real.

  15. its awesome to see Rodgers get smoked and decleated by Suh on a good, clean hit.

    Not so awesome when the hit comes after he’s already thrown

    Suh hasnt changed a bit since his detroit days

  16. Packers always look great when they play subpar defenses. When they play a good defense they totally crumble. They beat up on Minnesota, Detroit and Atlanta and everyone jumped on the bandwagon. They are the same as last year. Paper Tigers!!!

  17. I really miss #4.

    He would have gotten up, slapped Suh on the -$$, found the zone, and probably would have thrown 4 tds.

    Rodgers… folded like a cheap deck chair.

  18. Aaron Rodgers is a chump. What a big baby. Suh did nothing but shove him to the ground like in a backyard game.
