The New York Jets couldn’t enjoy their legendary quarterback on the field for more than four plays.
Aaron Rodgers failed to complete a single pass as a member of the Jets, and we’ll now have to wait until the 2024 season to watch him take the field again — if ever.
Artificial turf, a terrible offensive line, or poor luck may have led to this unfortunate incident.
However, it seems like Rodgers may have predicted something like this could happen.
According to a report by Zack Blatt and Diana Russini of The Athletic, the former Super Bowl champion had let Jets coaches know that he wasn’t a fan of play-calls involving cut-blocks.

Notably, the Jets used cut-blocks twice in his four dropbacks on Monday night, including the play he was injured on.
Of course, it’s hard to blame this injury on his tackles or his coaches; it was just something unfortunate.
Rodgers could’ve and should’ve gotten rid of the football faster, especially knowing his tackles were about to do that.
Moreover, Rodgers definitely has the power to change the play-call; he’s earned that right throughout the course of his career.
At the end of the day, there’s only so much anyone can do to prevent an injury.
And while this is a massive blow and terrible news for the Jets, there’s no one to blame for it.NEXT: Fans React To Today's Aaron Rodgers News
