Aaron Rodgers finally realizes his season is over and it was a dud

Aaron Rodgers finally realizes his season is over and it was a dud

It’s all starting to sink in now for Aaron Rodgers.

Injured New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers had a lot going on over this first weekend in December. He turned 40 on Saturday, then stood on the sideline Sunday and watched the Jets lose to the Atlanta Falcons while scoring eight points. That could be when it dawned on Mr. Rodgers that suiting up again this year was highly unlikely. Some called Rodgers delusional from the start, thinking he’d play again this season. It seems that bubble finally burst during his birthday weekend.

Even if the Jets had won Sunday, the odds of Rodgers coming back and being effective on the field were slim. The optimistic attitude is something to admire, but whatever logic Rodgers had behind this was ludicrous at best. The Jets could be in a position to squeak into the playoffs, and his return would still be a waste of time. Having Rodgers on the field barely able to move around would be counterproductive.

Standing on the sideline next to Zach Wilson, looking like his uninterested stepdaddy, is the best place for Rodgers. Enjoy turning 40 and throwing balls in practice because the Jets are done. The only part that’s unclear is if Rodgers actually believed the Jets would be in a position for his return. A-Rod has said so many absurd things in the past few years that it’s hard to separate what’s real and what’s fiction with this guy.

What’s happened with the J-E-T-S Jets this year is what always happens. They wind up doing the Jets thing even when there is buzz surrounding the team. This is the organization Rodgers wanted so eagerly to play for. He’s supposed to be a good decision-maker — so much for that notion. Rodgers backed Green Bay into a corner because he only wanted to be traded to one team. Then, it all blew up in their faces immediately upon starting the season. Talk about the most Jets thing ever; you’ve got it right here. It’s time for Aaron to return home to his cave, sample psychedelics, and hibernate for the winter. He certainly won’t be part of any playoff games, at least not as a participant.
