The New York Jets are going to be one of the most-watched teams in the NFL this season. While they have not had a winning season since 2015, and just one winning record in the last 12 years, expectations are high in 2023.
Of course, expectations skyrocketed when the team acquired four-time MVP and future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who even at age 39 and coming off arguably the worst season of his NFL career is a massive upgrade from Zach Wilson.
Several former Green Bay Packers teammates of Rodgers’ followed him to New York, and a former rival running back Dalvin Cook signed with them as well. In short, the offensive skill players have a good mixture of veterans and exciting young players that, if offensive line is not a complete disaster (which it could be), could take the Jets to a level they have not seen in, well, decades.
Lil’ Wayne Believes a Spite Aaron Rodgers Will Be the Reason the New York Jets Are Successful (NFL)
While Lil’ Wayne is best known for his music, he is also a life-time football fan, specifically of the Packers. Somehow, he has become good friends with the divisive sports talk show host Skip Bayless, who recruited the artist to be one of his co-hosts on “Undisputed.”
On Tuesday, Bayless asked Lil’ Wayne his thoughts on how well the Jets will do this year with Rodgers as their quarterback. He responded:
“I see success. I think they will definitely be better than what they were. It’s impossible not to be with Aaron [Rodgers] there.
“And also, we know how Aaron is. To me, now this is to me, in my opinion, Aaron is spiteful. He’s spiteful. So when you got a spiteful person, you know they’re going to do the most to get it. And right now, I guess, he’s trying to show somebody, I guess maybe Green Bay or whatever.
“And here’s the thing, no one, no fans have Aaron, has seen this Aaron. So there’s a reason why he’s being this way, and it’s spiteful, in my opinion.”
Rodgers is certainly known for playing with a chip on his shoulder, whether it be legitimate or one he’s talked himself into having. Regardless of which it is, he does play better when he feels people are doubting him.
