Aaron Rodgers may officially be calling signs for the New York Jets during the 2023 season, but the road to the Super Bowl for Gang Green isn’t exactly a smooth paved road.

The Jets finished the 2022 season with a 7-10 record as the team started with four quarterbacks over the course of the year, including Zach Wilson, Joe Flacco, Mike White, and Chris Streveler. The Rodgers acquisition is definitely a boon for what’s to come in 2023.

New York will have one of the most complicated schedules in soccer. The Jets have NFC East and AFC West opponents on the docket, as well as the Houston Texans, Atlanta Falcons and Cleveland Browns.

It means the Jets will play the Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, and Los Angeles Chargers, all of whom made the playoffs in 2022. Not to mention, they’ll face the Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, and New England Patriots. during the season. The Chiefs and Eagles met in the Super Bowl and combined for 73 points.

New York ranked 29th in points scored and 25th in yards gained. The Jets posted seven wins for the second time since the 2015 season, which was the last time the team had double-digit victories. Since 2010, the Jets have only had at least 10 wins twice. They haven’t appeared in a playoff game since 2010.

Yet even with all that known, Rodgers made his intentions clear last month on an episode of «The Pat McAfee Show.» He said his intention was to play for the Jets in 2023.

Rodgers called the decision «bittersweet» but added that there are no hard feelings between him and Green Bay.

«No one has bled green and gold like me. I mean, I love that city,» he said. «I love those fans. I love that region.»

Since then, the Jets have signed Allen Lazard to bolster their offense. New York’s Garrett Wilson won Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2022.
