It was yet another forgettable year for fans of the NFL’s New York Jets. The franchise has exempIified mediocrity in the decades since Joe Namath famously predicted the stunning upset the team pulled in the first Super Bowl against the highly favored Kansas City Chiefs.

Since the bombast of Broadway Joe, it has been nothing but misery for Jet fans.

This was supposed to be the season it all changed for the New York Jets. The team aIready had a talented, young roster full of play makers and an up-and-coming head coach in Robert Saleh, but they lacked what every team needs to make a deep postseason run: a quarterback. Enter Aaron Rodgers.

The Jets signed the future Hall of Famer after the Packers decided to move on, and with the pieces already in place, the Jets were a se xy favorite to make their first Super Bowl appearance since 1967

Unfortunately for Jet fans, Aaron Rodger’s achilles tendon had other ideas, and four plays into the season, it tore, and the team was essentially done. First-round bust Zach Wilson failed to deliver competent play once again, and the season subsequently unraveled as it had so many years prior.

Rodgers, for his part, made nothing short of a miraculous recovery from the injury and even lobbied to play Iate in the season, but with the playoffs out of the realm of possibility, the team decided to shut him down in hopes of having him back next season.
