Aaron Rodgers had hoped to bury hatchet with Ndamukong Suh

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Buccaneers defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh exchanged some pleasantries after Sunday’s game in Tampa. Rodgers previously said that the issues between the two of them go back a long time.

On Tuesday, Rodgers said that he had hoped to bury the hatchet with the guy who once buried his cleat into Rogers’ lower leg.

“There was a little conversation in the third quarter, and this is where I say sometimes it goes to slightly more cordial after its hostile, I was under the impression we were going to have a conversation after the game,” Rodgers said Tuesday on The Pat McAfee Show on SiriusXM Mad Dog Radio. ” It was one of those, hey, I’m old, you’re old, let’s talk some things out.  I don’t know if he ran off the field after the game. I didn’t see him after the game.”

Rodgers was disappointed that Suh didn’t show.

“I was looking forward to that conversation,” Rodgers said. “I didn’t know how it was going to go. I didn’t think it was going, like, look, I’m not going to fight Ndamukong Suh. . . . After all these years playing together we’ve never had that conversation off the field. I think it would be interesting.”

It definitely would be interesting. Suh, however, probably prefers to have blind hatred for Rodgers, since it makes it easier to pin the proverbial ears back and go after him. Indeed, whatever was motivating Suh on Sunday worked.

He performed like he did in his prime, and Suh may have to bring that fire if/when these teams cross paths again in the postseason. The last thing he needs is to reach some sort of understanding with Rodgers that would make Suh less inclined to bring that same fire in January.

  1. Props to Rodgers for being such a class act about it. Of course the Viking trolls woun’t let this stop them from accusing him of “whining.”

  2. Well, Aaron it would be really big of you if you’d invite Suh to your Hall Of Fame induction ceremony. That would be the final word in that conversation.

    Rogers has ZERO playoff wins when trailing after the 4th quarter… ZERO…yes ZERO…

  5. Extreme competitors often hate their opponents.

    After both retire they can kiss-and-makeup…

  6. Maybe Rodgers should focus on throwing accurate passes during the game rather than updating his social calendar.

  7. I’m having trouble understanding just what Rogers wanted to say to Suh or what he wanted Suh to say to him. It almost sounds like he was hoping for an apology.

    Uh, Rodgers has never played in a playoff game where he trailed in OT.

    You just reminded me of the 2015 NFC championship game.

    You might remember this game, the Packers were up 19-7 with 2:10 on the clock, and proceeded to lose 28-22 in OT in an epic choke job.

  10. Funny to see Viking fans with so many comments. If my team had just given up 40 pts to a winless squad I wouldn’t be running my mouth.

  11. You might remember this game, the Packers were up 19-7 with 2:10 on the clock, and proceeded to lose 28-22 in OT in an epic choke job
    ————————————————————-
    When the Packers took a 19-7 lead they only had the ball one more time. The Seahawks had 3 possessions from there. Rodgers led the game-tying drive to force OT the one possession he did get.

    The defense and special teams choked. That’s the part you seem to be leaving out.

  12. You might remember this game, the Packers were up 19-7 with 2:10 on the clock, and proceeded to lose 28-22 in OT in an epic choke job.

    It was 3:58 to go, not that it makes it any better.

    Rodgers had to lead a drive to get a FG just to GET to OT. Probably would have been better if he hadn’t.

    Just an incomprehensible loss.

    Worst collapse in post-season history.

  14. Calvin, don’t forget about Rogers 4-10 playoff record.

    Fake news.

    He’s 12-10 as a playoff starter.
