The New York Jets gave up a lot to get Aaron Rodgers to MetLife Stadium.
It seemed like Rodgers was having the time of his life, and he looked more motivated, driven, and happier than ever.
That’s why it was so heartbreaking to see that his tenure on the field was so short-lived, as he had to be carted off the field after just four plays.
But as tough as this was, Jets owner Woody Johnson still hasn’t lost faith in his quarterback.

He took to Twitter to wish him a speedy recovery and remind him that they still have some work to do next season, all while sharing an epic clip of Rodgers taking the field while waving the American flag.
The stage was set for an epic matchup.
Rodgers took the field while MVP chants came from all over the stadium, and the Jets looked to start their Super Bowl-hopeful campaign by making a statement vs. a divisional rival like the Buffalo Bills.
Now, they’ll head to Dallas with Zach Wilson as their QB1 to face the Dallas Cowboys, and the expectation is that the BYU product will be their starter for the remainder of the season.
Needless to say, that will have to force the media, the fans, and even the staffers to take down their expectations a notch.
But still, they’re a very talented team on both sides of the field, so there’s a chance they end up making the playoffs anyway, even without their best player.NEXT: Matt Ryan Explains Why Jets Should Remain Confident
