Ndamukong Suh sacked Aaron Rodgers disrespectfully, but did Rodgers spit at him?
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were up 28-10 in the final seconds of the first half over the visiting Green Bay Packers. Rodgers threw two picks in back-to-back possessions that resulted in 14 points for the Buccaneers. This was a get-right game for the Buccaneers after losing 10 days ago to the Chicago Bears on Thursday Night Football. It looks like Tampa Bay is going to roll today.
If you want Ndamukong Suh to stop, then stop him and not spit at him.
Suh’s reputation for playing through the whistle, ad-libbing and doing all sorts of extracurricular nonsense precedes himself. He’s been doing this since he played for the Detroit Lions after an unforgettable college career with the Nebraska Cornhuskers. So if you thought he wasn’t going to whip out the hit stick on an easy sack of the Packers quarterback, you are sorely mistaken.
It may have been bountiful ejection of saliva from Rodgers’ mouth, but we all know he has a tendency to be petty from time to time. Though Suh may have gone over the top to bring Rodgers to the turf, it is part of his job description to bring opposing quarterbacks to the turf. Who knows what’s in Rodgers’ Packers contract, but I don’t think spitting at an opponent is in there at all.
Spitting at people is one way to get their attention, especially after they tackle you to the ground.
