The Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers parted ways after the 2023 season, with Rodgers heading to the New York Jets.
Rodgers’ addition to Head Coach Robert Saleh’s team has sparked predictions of success for the 39-year-old future Hall-of-Famer.
Not everyone is all aboard the Rodgers hype train for 2023, however.
Greg Jennings, a two-time Pro Bowler and one-time Super Bowl champion, thinks that the Jets may be headed for a rocky start, even with Rodgers at the controls of the team’s offense.
He said as much during a segment with NFL pundit Craig Carton recently that had Carton disagreeing strongly with the former Western Michigan Broncos star receiver.

Rogers has been active this offseason, recently having a hilarious run-in with a pregnant woman that made national news headlines. The most recent, updated Jets depth chart after the 2023 NFL Draft has Rodgers listed as the starting quarterback ahead of last year’s starter Zach Wilson and other challengers.
A lot will depend on Jets starting running back Breece Hall this upcoming season. While Rodgers and the passing game get all the attention, Hall has quietly become one of the most promising young running backs in the American Football Conference.
Last season’s rookie phenom Garrett Wilson, former Packer Allen Lazard, and ex-Kansas City Chiefs star Mecole Hardman make up a receiving corps that could be among the league’s best — if Rodgers can consistently get them the ball.
Last season, concerns emerged regarding Rodgers’ ability to get and stay on the same page with his receivers. Injuries and a lack of continuity on offense caused problems for Green Bay as the team stumbled down the stretch to a third-place finish in the NFC North.
With a stacked lineup on offense, the hope among Jets fans is that Rodgers and company prove Jennings wrong in 2023 with the Jets in search of their first playoff appearance since 2010.
