Aaron Rodgers did not throw Richard Sherman’s way a single time during the Green Pay Packers’ loss to the Seattle Seahawks last Thursday night. Naturally, Sherman was flattered and had to brag about it after the game. Did that lead to an uncomfortable exchange with Rodgers? It doesn’t seem that way.
Although the GIF you see above led to speculation that Rodgers was annoyed with Sherman, Rodgers said Tuesday on his ESPNMilwaukee radio show that he joked around with Sherman after the game.
“I think I said, ‘I hope you get some work this year,'” Rodgers explained. “By that point, I knew that we hadn’t really looked to his side or thrown to his side, and I just said that to him, and I think we kind of laughed about it and went on the way.”
Sherman was definitely busting Rodgers’ balls, but there was no confrontation, as some wanted to put it. If there was, how do you explain this lovely moment?
Sherman had every right to brag, and we know he never misses an opportunity to do so. He completely shut down one side of the field and made Green Bay’s offense look mediocre in the process. Rodgers knows he avoided him intentionally.
