Aaron Rodgers is doing some incredible stuff. Three months after suffering a major Achilles Tendon injury, the quarterback has come back strongly. In a recent video, the 39-year-old was spotted throwing a dime in the team’s practice. The moment depicted Rodgers’ desperation to get back to the field as soon as possible.
However, not everyone was impressed with Rodgers throwing dimes just after three months of suffering a serious injury like an Achilles Tendon. Some people cautioned him that a bad move could make things worse for him. Some of the NFL enthusiasts are still in shock to see Rodgers returning so early. If he finally manages to hit the ground on December 2, then he will become one of the quickest ever to come back on the field from an Achilles Tendon injury.
This has triggered controversy among the analysts. Former player and present-day analyst Emmanuel Acho slammed Rodgers for being an attention seeker. He questioned Rodgers’ intention to come back so early. He believes that Rodgers is not doing it for the love of his teammates. Instead, he is doing it because he wants attention.
The Jets are in a poor position. They suffered a lot due to Rodgers’ absence. The backup quarterback Zach Wilson failed to fill the vacuum in the absence of Rodgers. They are standing at the bottom of their division with a 4-7 record. They have some of the interesting fixtures left this season. If Rodgers comes back and they manage to win those then the team will have more oxygen for the next season. This is the sole reason that the Jets fans are happy to see Rodgers training or practising with the team.
Fans criticized Aaron Rodgers for his desperation
As mentioned earlier some of the fans reacted in a negative way to see Aaron Rodgers throwing dimes at the team’s practice.
Losing their minds, they flocked in numbers and cautioned Rodgers. Check out some of the comments that they made.
Earlier it was thought that Rodgers would have a comeback if the Jets managed to get into the playoffs. However, a change in his mindset was reported by Jay Glazer. The Fox Sports reporter said that Rodgers decided to come back before playoffs just to ensure confidence in the team.
Well, that changed this past week. I think Aaron, even if they’re out of it, still wants to show he was able to come back faster from that Achilles tear, faster than pretty much any quarterback ever.
Rodgers is in New York and preparing for his comeback to the field. All eyes are now on December 2.
