So, this is where we are now. Hot tech for hot tech’s sake. whenever you choose new york jets For anything other than performing like the Jets, this is a hot take. Suddenly, because they’ve acquired an over-the-hill, entitled, cave-dwelling quarterback in Aaron Rodgers, We must believe that the Jets are going to be something other than the Jets. is a revelation. A New Yorker historically picking his worst team to make it to the big game before the season even starts. It only makes sense in New York. but that’s it Adam Schein of NFL.com And Sirius XM wants you to believe.
Not only did Schein pick the Jets to represent the AFC in Super Bowl LVIII, but he also felt it would be a reunion between New York and one of his former QBs. shane chose san francisco 49ers, led by none other than Sam Darnold, to compete against the Jets for the next Vince Lombardi Trophy. oh merciful, this Sounds like a terrible movie script the way he put it.
Let’s talk about Sam Darnold
Darnold faltered in NYC, he couldn’t hack it in Carolina, and now he’s about to lead the Niners back to the promised land. Highly Doubt Darnold Will Be The Niners The QB has opportunities late in the season as well. Unless there’s another repeat of last year in San Francisco QB Musical Chair, Darnold will be holding that iPad. Say what you will about Jimmy Garoppolo, and most of you have, but Darnold is not even on that level.
Yes, the Niners have a great team and coaching staff, but once Brock Purdy is healthy, he should be a good player. Trey Lance may be the odd man outBut he’s a wildcard in that 49ers’ QB room now. The chances of Darnold taking SF to another Super Bowl are minimal.
It is even less likely that Darnold will play against the Jets (the team that drafted him) if he can navigate the Niners to the last game of the 2023 season. One of the biggest reasons this won’t happen is because the jets wouldn’t be there anyhow. The AFC is a challenge, and ’22 wasn’t the greatest year for Rodgers.
2023 Aaron Rodgers is a different animal entirely
Sure, you can point to him losing his best wide receiver, Davante Adams, and being forced to rely on a bunch of young guys. This is probably fair to some extent, but Tom Brady played with no-name receivers or above-average goals Worked in New England for years and many times.
Rodgers had a resurgence a few years ago, winning back-to-back league MVP awards, and he showed us last season that time is closing in on his career. forget the numbers; watch the game. He wasn’t making the passes we’ve become accustomed to completing, and overall, Rodgers looked as it was falling,
But a-rod is the jets boy, and that’s what they’ve hitched their wagon to, thinking it can get them through a tough AFC. Good luck with that, and Mr. Shen with his choice. We’ve got a long way to go, as it’s only June, but three months before the season starts is already sounding absurd.
