Aaron Rodgers and his delusions of grandeur about returning this season

Aaron Rodgers’ first season in New York came to a complete standstill last Monday after suffering a devastating Achilles tendon injury on his fourth snap in his debut game. When it comes to football injuries, a ruptured Achilles tendon is one of the most serious injuries that usually takes at least six months to recover from. Even for professional athletes, it can take over a year until they feel completely comfortable again. Rodgers (as delusional (it sounds like) says he could be back in time for a Jets playoff run. You know, we expect the Jets to make a playoff run without Rodgers.

“So, give me your schedule, give me your doubts, give me your prognosis and watch what I do.” Rodgers said on the Pat McAfee Show.

It’s nice to see the confidence and good mood after the operation. Still, it’s obvious that Rodgers should have waited a bit before going on TV with his attitude, as it appears he may have been a little crazy from what he was given to treat his pain. The idea of ​​returning by January sounds good but is highly unlikely given the nature of the injury. Even if the Jets are able to move on after the season and Rodgers is free, there’s no way he’ll reach the level necessary to make a significant impact.

Emmanuel Acho: “There should be no expectations when Aaron Rodgers returns”

If we want to keep a buck here, it has less to do with him coming back for “the team” and more to do with Rodgers doing this for himself. With all the talk about proving doubters wrong and timelines, it’s obvious he knows what people are saying, and as usual, A-Rod is internalizing it all. Kevin Durant It took him a year and a half to return to the court after tearing his Achilles tendon during the 2019 NBA Finals.

The two are not an exact comparison, but it is about the type of injury. Durant was more cautious in his return, but he was 30 years old when it happened. Two different sports and two different players, but Rodgers’ game and style require a certain agility. Additionally, Rodgers is about to turn 40 in December. A comeback in January would leave him sidelined for almost four months from the time of the injury.

Nobody expects anything from Rodgers should he return this season, and he knows it. So it’s truly a win-win situation for the four-time MVP. Rodgers wants it to be about him and wants the spotlight to shine brightly as he grins for the cameras. If he comes back (which is doubtful), don’t expect much from Rodgers and Jets fans. It would be a miracle if Rodgers could run normally by playoff time. Achieving this may require further retreat into the darkness and a lot of ayahuasca.
