I’ll admit it: I love Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers and I have had a complicated relationship. And it’s not really a relationship. It’s also not very complicated.

I’ve met him once. I’ve never met him, never spoken to him on the phone. In 2016, he called me out for analyzing the issues with the Packers, warning the public not to They waste their time reading crap like that. In 2021, I strongly objected to his “I’ve been vaccinated” verbal games with reporters.

But that’s all in the past. It’s water under the bridge. Days ago days ago. Right now, I love Aaron Rodgers.

Yes I said that. I love this guy who plays for the Jets.

he is happy. It’s loose. He loves his teammates. He loves the game. He is fully aware that he is reaching his last football orbit around the sun.

Is it a verb? At first, I thought he was exaggerating as a middle finger to the Packers front office. Now, I think he’s really happy with the direction his life and career have taken, and it shows.

Maybe it was a change of scenery. Maybe it was for hours in a dark closet. Whatever the case, the new Aaron Rodgers is just as likable as Fred Rogers.

Chris Sims and I discussed the dynamic on Thursday BFT Live. People can change, grow, and develop. Rodgers did. Maybe I have too.

Regardless, I find myself wanting to see him and the Jets do well this year. I know Bills, Dolphins and Patriots fans may not appreciate it, but I can’t help but feel the way I feel.

And I currently feel very differently about Aaron Rodgers than I have in a long time. Of course, he might feel the same way he always does about me. But that’s fine. It’s hardly the first, and far from the last.

Moreover, why is it required that we not like people who hate us? These “I’ll be nice to you if and only if you’re nice to me” things have to end. It’s okay to be kind to those who aren’t kind to us, and to love those who don’t love us back.

Right now, I love Aaron Rodgers.

Maybe it was something I ate.
