Bucs’ Todd Bowles responds to Aaron Rodgers’ Jumbotron comments
The Buccaneers fell to the Packers, 14-12, at home on Sunday after failing on a two-point conversion attempt that could have forced overtime with 14 seconds left in the game.
The conversation following the marquee game took an interesting turn after the Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers hinted to Fox’s Tom Rinaldi that he noticed information about the Bucs’ game plan on the Raymond James Stadium jumbotron and passed it on to his team.
“Sometimes you see things in the game. Sometimes the Jumbotron shows things that they probably shouldn’t show, even at home. I saw something. I just passed on the information,” Rodgers said in his postgame interview.
On Monday, Bucs coach Todd Bowles acknowledged Rodgers’ remarks during his media briefing, telling reporters he planned to meet with the team’s football operations department to resolve the issue. by Rick Stroud of Tampa Bay Weather. Bowles noted that the purpose of the meeting will be to see what information, if any, Rodgers and the Packers could have gleaned from the Jumbotron photo from the Tampa sideline.
While it’s unclear what the QB star may have seen, Rodgers shared his perspective while discussing his thoughts on the Bucs’ last game. Tampa started on the 7-yard line after being penalized for late play, which ultimately led to Tom Brady’s incomplete pass to Russell Gage. Green Bay recovered the next inbounds kick to end the game.
“Well, they showed that on the previous play as well,” Rodgers told Rinaldi. “It was a delay on both games.”
“Jumbotron-gate” on our hands by the end of the week? The mystery continues for at least a little longer.
