During a podcast by AXIOS, Suh was talking about the preparations running up to the Super Bowl. And during that conversation he talked about his favorite QB to go after in the league.

“Truthfully, (Tom) Brady is always great to hit when I’m going against him when we’re not on the same team. But Aaron Rodgers even more,” he said.

“It’s always a pleasure to go after him and frustrate him as we’ve been able to do twice this year.”

The Green Bay Packers QB and Suh share some bad blood from the past. To trace the origins of this rivalry, one will have to go back all the way to 2014.

In a Week 17 tie at Lambeau Field. Suh was caught stepping on Rodgers’ leg in the fourth quarter of the game. While Rodgers let it slip the first time, he was none of it the second time around. And when push followed shove, the two players had to be separated by officials and teammates.

Even this season, the two have shared a heated moment on the pitch. In the regular season game that the Buccaneers won, Rodgers was viciously sacked by Suh. And Aaron Rodgers was not a happy customer.

While in the NFC Championship game, the two didn’t have a direct square off, Suh and his Buccaneers side had the last laugh as they rolled out victors and are now set to play in the Super Bowl.

The Buccaneers will hope that against the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl, Suh will envision Aaron Rodgers in the pocket for extra motivation.
