Packers star Aaron Rodgers was hoping to bury the hatchet with Ndamukong Suh
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has had a rivalry with Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh for pretty much his whole career since Suh and Rodgers had plenty of battles when the defensive tackle was with the Detroit Lions.
In Week 6 during the Packers-Buccaneers game, Rodgers and Suh started jawing with each other to rekindle that rivalry. The Packers lost to the Bucs for their first defeat of the season and Rodgers didn’t play that well.
On the Pat McAfee Show on SiriusXM Mad Dog Radio on Tuesday, Rodgers talked about the beef between him and Suh. The Packers star shockingly said he was hoping to bury the hatchet after the game on Sunday, but Rodgers couldn’t find Suh.

“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,” Aaron 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.
“I was looking forward to that conversation. 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.”
Rodgers, one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history, looked human in Week 6. The Packers’ future Hall of Famer threw two interceptions and failed to throw a touchdown for the first time all season.
The Packers will look to bounce back in Week 7 against the Houston Texans. Knowing Rodgers, he’ll probably have a vintage performance versus the Texans since the future Hall of Famer rarely plays badly in back-to-back weeks.
