The New York Jets have put all of their eggs into the Aaron Rodgers basket. It was a disastrous decision in 2023, as he was injured on the first offensive series of the campaign and missed the remainder of the season.

Heading into the 2024 season, there is a cautious optimism surrounding the Jets. If Aaron Rodgers can remain healthy, this is a team that could do some damage in the AFC.

Should he not be able to stay on the field, New York will at least be more competitive than in years past. Tyrod Taylor is a top-of-the-line backup quarterback and will keep the team afloat if his number is called.

But, the Jets’ best chance to win is with Aaron Rodgers staying healthy. It is anyone’s guess how productive he will be after missing an entire season and turning 41 in December.

His presence alone has people excited about this team’s potential. One player looking forward to working with him is the team’s new wide receiver, Mike Williams.

Williams spent the first seven seasons of his career with the Los Angeles Chargers, who selected him No. 7 overall in the 2017 NFL Draft. Recently, he made some comments about what to expect from the team’s offense, which Aaron Rodgers evidently has full control over.

“Just seeing the way that he throws the ball and puts these guys in the right position. It don’t matter the plays that are being called [because] he is switching it at the line [of scrimmage],” Williams said to Jets.com’s Caroline Hendershot. “Seeing what the defense is in and putting everybody in the right position to be successful. I like that he do that.”

While Williams was speaking up the intelligence and attention to detail of Aaron Rodgers, his comments emphasis one of the biggest issues the Jets face; Nathaniel Hackett remaining the team’s playcaller in 2024.

Outside of working with Aaron Rodgers during his MVP campaigns in 2020 and 2021, Hackett has accomplished virtually nothing as a playcaller in the NFL. He was the worst coach in the league for 15 games with the Denver Broncos before they fired him in 2022.

Sean Payton, the current head coach of the Broncos, bashed Hackett’s job with the franchise as well. His playcalling will once again be something to keep an eye on, as there is only so much Aaron Rodgers can do on the field.
