NY Jets: What happened to Aaron Rodgers in 2022?

The New York Jets hope they can help Aaron Rodgers reverse the issues that caused his down year in 2022

Aaron Rodgers is a future Hall of Fame quarterback. But which version of him are the New York Jets getting?

Just one year ago, Rodgers was the NFL’s reigning back-to-back MVP. However, Rodgers’ 2022 season was a major disappointment.

Rodgers posted career lows as a starter in passer rating (91.1) and passing yards per game (217.4). He also threw his most interceptions (12) since his first season as a starter in 2008. Ultimately, Rodgers’ Packers went 8-9 and missed the playoffs.

The full, member-only Aaron Rodgers film breakdown (1:44:00 in length) can be found at the bottom of this article (must be a Jets X-Factor member and logged into the site). 

Many theories have been brought up to try and explain what happened. Some blame Rodgers’ down year on his supporting cast in Green Bay. Others pin it on the thumb injury Rodgers suffered early in the season. There is also the group who believes Rodgers is simply falling off as he approaches 40 years old.

What is the truth? Why did Rodgers not look like Aaron Rodgers in 2022?

On the newest edition of Blewett’s Blitz, we break down the film from the first half of Rodgers’ 2022 season to figure out what happened.

  • How much was Rodgers hurt by his supporting cast?
  • Did the thumb injury affect him?
  • Which issues can Rodgers take full blame for?
  • Are there any concerns that could carry over into 2023?

This is part three of a four-part series on Rodgers. Be sure to check out part one and part two.
