It seems more or less guaranteed that the Jets will be a must-watch team this year, and in ways we can’t even know yet. As my editor (and tortured Jets fan) explained to me, “Before playing a single game, Aaron Rodgers instantly becomes the best Jets quarterback of my lifetime, and quite possibly in franchise history. I am registering for Super Bowl tickets, and I can’t wait to see the insanely painful and hilarious way things go south.”
There’s really no reason this unit shouldn’t be able to put up points. Rodgers will have some fun toys to play with, and the offensive depth chart is littered with first-round picks, but it’s also important to remember that these are literally the Jets. Dysfunction runs deep with this organization. And, for years, it’s manifested most prominently under the centre.
Last year that position was manned by Zach Wilson (who is straight out of central casting for a Gen Z Karate Kid villain), the Mike White who didn’t create White Lotus, washed icon Joe Flacco, and a man named Chris Streveler, who was basically doing Tim Tebow cosplay. After a November loss to the Patriots where Wilson & Co. He scored three points and totaled two total yards in the second half, head coach Robert Saleh described their performance as “dogshit.”
With a more experienced man slinging the rock, a few breakouts who should thrive with a competent QB at the helm, and even one of Rodgers’ boys from Green Bay wide receiver Allen Lazard, the Jets have now at least guaranteed that they won’t. t be dogshit television. There’s trainwreck potential, to be clear—but those are famously hard to take your eyes off as well. Bringing Rodgers into the fold likely secures the Jets a few primetime games, too, which should be a fun and different vibe than what Gang Green’s fans have become accustomed to. The Jets fly into their upcoming season with the reigning Rookies of the Year on offense and defense, in Garrett Wilson and Sauce Gardner (making them just the third team ever to have both), a solid offensive line, and a fearsome pass rush. That’s a recipe for a pretty good team, and if Rodgers really gets cooking, the meal could be phenomenal.
He could also, you know, lobby for Andrew Tate to be the offensive coordinator by Week 6. Stay tuned!
