Aaron Rodgers calls out Jets teammates for ugly sideline spats
Aaron Rodgers called out some of his Jets teammates Tuesday during his weekly appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show.”
Specifically, the quarterback said he wasn’t pleased with what he saw on the sidelines during Sunday’s 15-10 loss to the New England Patriots at MetLife Stadium.
Rodgers said the Jets offense needs to “grow up,” noting it’s “the sideline stuff that I don’t like.”
Garrett Wilson and Michael Carter were each spotted on the sideline Sunday airing their grievances as the Jets offense failed to establish any sort of momentum, aside from the one touchdown drive late in the fourth quarter.
Much of the blame on offense goes to quarterback Zach Wilson, who continues to fail as Rodgers’ fill-in while the four-time NFL MVP recovers from surgery to repair his torn Achilles tendon.
Wilson finished the game 18-of-36 for 157 yards and a QB rating of 61.9.
Through three games this season, Wilson is completing 52.4 percent of his passes and has four interceptions while being sacked eight times.
After watching Wilson come up small against the Patriots, the Jets are set to sign veteran quarterback Trevor Siemian to the practice squad.
However, as of right now, head coach Robert Saleh remains all-in on Wilson as the Jets’ starting quarterback.
That means Wilson will be on display for the entire nation on Sunday when the Jets host Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Chiefs demolished the Bears on Sunday, 41-10, with Taylor Swift in attendance supporting Travis Kelce.
