Ndamukong Suh likes to piss off Aaron Rodgers on the field, hopes to connect off the field

NFL: OCT 18 Packers at Buccaneers

Buccaneers defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers have a longtime rivalry. They’ve played against each other many times, and Suh was once suspended for stepping on Rodgers’ arm. (The suspension was overturned on appeal.)

Suh’s Buccaneers got the best of Rodgers’ Packers in the NFC Championship Game, and Suh says he took delight in that. But Suh also said he approached Rodgers after the game and said he’d like to get together over the offseason, as Suh believes the two of them might go into business together.

“I’m gonna always want to piss off Aaron and make him not want to be my friend on the football field,” Suh said on Shannon Sharpe’s podcast. “When it’s off field we’ll definitely find the time and I’m hoping to connect.”

Suh said trying to piss off Rodgers is nothing personal, and he tries to piss off every quarterback he faces, including Tom Brady on the practice field.

“Without question, all quarterbacks. Even Tom, I want to piss Tom off during practice,” Suh said.

Perhaps Suh pissing off Rodgers will prove to be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

  1. Some of Suh’s on-field antics in the past have been less than classy, but everyone wants a D tackle who turns into a complete animal on the field. I sort of like this about him.

  2. After taking out Rogers and Mahomes, Suh probably won’t be getting that special rate at State Farm.

  3. Early on, this guy had a rep for being over the line and a dirty player…probably well deserved. You never want to see anyone get hurt. I just like and respect the fact he’s never tried to apologize or duck who he is or what his job is on the field. His job is to be disruptive, make plays and, if you have the ball, punish you. He’s been all of those things for awhile. He still brings a ton of value to that Buc’s D.

  4. kind of reminds me of that Johnny Cash song,
    My name is Sue,how do you do, your gonna die
    Gotta love Suh

  5. Shannon Sharpe’s podcast has some really good content. I thought Suh was a nasty sometimes dirty player on the field but he seems like a very likeable person off the field and seems like a great mentor for business as well.

  6. Suh wants to be friends with Rodgers off the field as long as Rodgers the MVP can help Suh make money off Rodgers name and reputation.pretty smart move by Suh.

  7. He has to decide if he wants to get after Rodgers twice a year . . . or have a chance at another ring . . .

  8. Dirty player, but also extremely talented. I highly doubt Rodgers is eager to be friends with him though after the crap he’s pulled.

  9. Guys on winning teams tend to have their history glossed over when it comes to bad behavior on the field. That is now happening with Suh. His behavior used to be beyond horrible and while now matured somewhat, you can still see regular glimpses of the old. Would you really be surprised to one day hear he lost his temper off the field and something really bad happened? Make excuses for him if you would like but players like Reggie White could generate fear and disruption in the mind of the opposition while still being professional, classy and respectful.

  10. Come to Minnesota and pummel him twice a year.
    —–
    You should check your team’s sack totals vs GB the last couple years. Not much pummeling going on. Hunter and Suh on the same line would be a challenge for sure though.

  11. Aaron could do a lot worse. Suh co-owns one of the better local eateries here in Portland. Their service and quality are top tier, and before downtown went to pot their location there was one of the neatest appointed. They’ve been thriving when others haven’t.

  12. One of the most overrated linemen in the history of the NFL. If he was so good, why is he on a different team every year? Couldn’t cut it playing next to Aaron Donald for 2 years on the Rams?

  13. Aaron is downright terrified of Suh. Just knowing Suh is on the other side of the line rattles Aaron before the play even begins.

  14. Haven’t liked Suh for all of the dirty play back with the Lions. That being said, he and Rodgers go back and forth and it reminds me of John Randall/Favre or Warren Sapp/Favre (who was dirty in his own right, ask Chad Clifton)

    Also, he was one of the most impressive players in college I have watched. He single handedly brought Nebraska a year of glory. The league needs more of these Dline-qb “rivalries” so we can stop pretending like qbs play a 1v1

    He cant control himself ON the field.

    Did you miss the forearm shiver to Mahomes head in the Super Bowl.

    Late in a game WELL out of hand. Relentlessly chased him all night. NO chance of getting back in the game.

    The man has no buisness being on the field. Proof positive that the League could not care less about player safety.

  16. When Suh played for the Dolphins in a 2014 Patriots-Dolphins game, Suh rolled onto Brady on a sack and left Brady with a messed up ankle. Suh is a nasty man on the field.

    Off the field, he comes across as very smart & thoughtful.

  17. As a Packers fan I can’t stand Suh. But I totally respect his position. I like players who get after their opposition on the field and why shouldn’t they? And to separate on field attitudes from off field makes me appreciate Suh even more. I like thinkers and both Suh and Rodgers fall in that category.
