Dear, Jets' Fans
First of all, thank you for taking a leap of faith on Aaron Rodgers. All good things come to an end, and the relationship between the Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers had expired over a year ago.
Let me tell you, the city of New York is in for a wild ride. You have a 4 time NFL MVP as your quarterback, so the standards have changed. No longer is competing acceptable, you must win and you must win often.
Speaking of winning, that's not enough. Even if you win, and make it far in the playoffs, have fun with the media. Having such an incredible quarterback sets such incredible standards, that sometimes it blinds you from what incredible football you get to watch.
On the field, I don't think you know what level of play you are about to see. With Rodgers under center, every play is an adventure.
I hope you don't like screen passes, because you won't be having those.
I hope you love deep balls on 3rd and 2, because you'll see 1.2 of those every game.
I hope you enjoy empty sets. Lots of them. I know you have Breece Hall and some cool running backs, but AR12 (or 8 I guess now?) is in town. It's air raid city baby, all aboard.
And I REALLY hope you enjoy hand signals. Lots of them. I am talking "Angry TSA agent in the arrival lane at the LAX airport" amount of signals.
But in all seriousness, watching Aaron Rodgers was part of the reason I fell in love with football. The wrist flick deep balls, the Hail Mary's and the million dollar smile all made it the ride of a lifetime.
To the New York media, don't go easy on him. Rodgers is one of the smartest players I have ever seen, and he will be very specific in his wording. Dig deep, and ask good honest questions and he will give good honest answers.
To the New York Jets staff. Cherish your chance to watch greatness. Rodgers loves making friends with everyone in the building, so go up to him, introduce yourself, and enjoy the adventure for as long as it lasts.
To Joe Douglas, thanks for finally getting it together and getting this deal done. Jordan Love is going to really enjoy all the weapons we draft in the first round in the next two years, since ya know Green Bay hasn't drafted a skill player in Round.1 since 2002.
And finally, to Aaron Rodgers. QB, friend, and majority owner of the team up north. Thank you for the memories, thank you for the Super Bowl, and thank you for beating the Chicago Bears so many times. I will never forget the Miracle in MoTown, running the table, and hoisting the Lombardi. We'll see you in Canton, 12.
PS... I swear, Jets' offensive lineman, if you don't protect this man enough for him to play 65% of the total snaps next season, then you are doing yourselves and Packers' fans a disservice.
