NY Jets: To believe or not to believe in Aaron Rodgers

The New York Jets’ success or failure in 2024 depends on Aaron Rodgers

While the national media may not be as fixated on Aaron Rodgers as they were in his first season with the New York Jets, he’s still a constant topic of conversation. The haters say he’ll just get injured again; the skeptics say he’s no longer a top quarterback; the homers expect an MVP season from him. The truth, as usual, lies somewhere in the middle.

For every reason to believe that Rodgers can carry the Jets to a Super Bowl, there’s a corresponding reason he won’t. Michael Nania joined The Score Boord podcast to discuss many of these pros and cons and come up with reasonable expectations for Rodgers in 2024.

Here are just some of the factors we addressed:

  • Arm talent
  • Injury concerns for Rodgers + the offensive line
  • Lack of depth at receiver beyond Garrett Wilson and Mike Williams
  • What to make of his 2022 season, and how it compares to Patrick Mahomes’ 2023 performance
  • How his lack of mobility could hurt him
  • Play-calling and how it will affect both Rodgers and the rest of the Jets’ offense
  • What level of play the Jets need from Rodgers to make a Super Bowl run

We also addressed the battle for the AFC East, sneaky games on the schedule that could be more difficult than anticipated, the safety competition, the lack of defensive tackle depth and its effect on the run game, and projections for Will McDonald in 2024.

You can listen to the full episode on Apple Music, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.
