Players like Aaron Rodgers don’t need any help during tight games. It sounds like the Buccaneers gave the rival quarterback just that in the loss.
There are a lot of reasons why the Buccaneers fell short in their third game of the 2022 campaign. The defense was a little too flimsy at the start of the game. The offense being unable to score more than one touchdown in a game is concerning.
Trying to put any blame for the loss on the need to get a 2-point conversion and then win in overtime is silly. The game should have never been in that position in the first place, but it is where the game officially ended.
Unfortunately for the Bucs, it sounds like the reasons behind the loss go beyond poor execution.
According to Aaron Rodgers, who finally gets a quality win against Tampa after losing the last few matchups, the Bucs tipped their hand with the jumbotron.
What Rodgers was talking about still remains to be seen, but it does make sense that something could pop up on those giant screens that shouldn’t. Whether it was a play that popped up, a signal, or someone saying something, Rodgers seems to think that he saw something that helped the Packer defense in their game-winning stand.
Is this real? As of now, we have no reason to believe otherwise. Rodgers making this up just for the sake of it to make life Hell for some of the camera operators seems out of character.
Something probably did pop up, no matter how insignificant it might have seemed to the camera operators, and the Buccaneers need to figure out how to minimize this in the future if they don’t want to lose other close games against Hall of Fame quarterbacks.
Onto the Chiefs.
