When asked on Monday about what the Jets need to do to achieve success in 2024, New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers didn’t mince words.
“The (expletive) that has nothing to do with winning needs to get out of the building,” Rodgers asserted during a press conference on Monday morning.
This statement, however, comes from a quarterback who frequently makes headlines on The Pat McAfee Show, discussing controversial topics such as the COVID-19 vaccine and making insinuations about Jimmy Kimmel’s potential connection to the Jeffrey Epstein list. Predictably, Rodgers is now facing criticism for what some perceive as a hypocritical comment.
“You can’t make this stuff up,” remarked one fan.
“Does that mean he’s retiring?” pondered another.
“Is this a comedy? HAHA,” joked a different fan.
“Oh, so Aaron Rodgers is retiring?” questioned yet another fan.
As the Jets navigate their way into the 2024 season with various challenges, Rodgers, who has been a notable distraction since his early-season injury, faces scrutiny for what some view as an attempt to remain relevant. The irony of Rodgers calling out distractions while himself being perceived as one is not lost on observers.
