This look shared by Mike Tomlin and Aaron Rodgers has Steelers fans all sorts of hot and bothered

October 04, 2021

This past offseason was a tumultuous one for Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, and the situation between both parties nearly reached a Defcon 5 level after Green Bay was waxed by New Orleans Week 1. Since then, though, Rodgers has played at his usual MVP level, ripping off three straight wins to climb to the top of the NFC North standings. All is well in Packer-land.

That said, there is still a massive elephant in the room - the threat of Rodgers forcing his way out of GB is still extremely real, and a look shared by Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin and Rodgers on Sunday at Lambeau Field has turned up the concern meter to 11 for Packers fans. As for Steelers fans, they are all sorts of hot and bothered by the prospect of Rodgers coming to Pittsburgh in 2022. 

The Rodgers-to-Pittsburgh buzz has seemingly increased overnight, especially considering the fact longtime Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is playing like he needed to retire two years ago. That would open up the door for No. 12 to trade in his green and yellow for black and yellow, a suddenly likely scenario should the Packers fail to win a second Super Bowl with Rodgers under center. 

The "look" in question between Tomlin and Rodgers came when Rodgers nearly got Pittsburgh's defense popped for a too many men on the field penalty, only for Tomlin to sneak in a timeout first. 

Welp, that settles it. Rodgers to Pittsburgh in 2022, confirmed. Did the internet do it again or did the internet do it again:  

Incredible stuff. Of course, this look could mean absolutely nothing, and it probably does. Just a fun little eye-locking between two dudes playing some mental chess on a Sunday. But man, if it does mean something, if Rodgers does end up a Steeler in 2022, then this "look" will be memorialized in the form of a plaque or statue outside of Heinz Field if Rodgers goes on to to great things in Steel Country. Listen to us. This is what this league does to people - a two-second look between opposing coach and player turns into a week-long discussion about the 2022 offseason. The NFL remains undefeated.
