After receiving an absurd amount of off-season hype, Aaron Rodgers officially made his debut as the new starting QB for the New York Jets. However, after just four snaps and 75 seconds into the game, the four-time MVP had to kiss the 2023 season goodbye — why? Well, an MRI confirmed that Aaron completely tore his left Achilles tendon.
Although there has been an outpouring of love and well wishes for Aaron, there are also countless memes about the unfortunate situation. With that said, keep scrolling because we've rounded up 20 of the best reactions that fans had about Aaron's devastating (and potentially career-ending) injury.
What a tenure...
We were looking forward to Aaron's season, and for this to be his only "highlight" is pretty heartbreaking.
Jets fans will never know peace.
As MJ says in Spider-Man: No Way Home, "If you expect disappointment, then you can never really be disappointed."
Another year, another awful Jets season.
Jets fans need to understand that they're a cursed franchise, and it's going to take more than Aaron Rodgers to turn it around. But hopefully, the organization gets it together soon enough!
Hello darkness, my old friend.
No one, not even God, will let Jets fans experience happiness.
The win made it much worse.
The minute they woke up and remembered Aaron's season-ending injury, their day was ruined.
This poor man!
Aaron didn't even have the chance to prove himself to the Jets community. He raised their expectations exponentially, and it all went away without him ever completing a pass. Ugh, talk about devastating.
This is devastatingly accurate.
For some reason, there's always a Spongebob reference that will sum up a tragic event.
Blink and you miss Aaron Rodgers' entire 2023 NFL season!
His season ended before it even actually started — if that's not heartbreaking, then we don't know what is!
MetLife is showing no mercy.
After allowing the ever-disappointing New York Giants to get shut out 40-0 by the Dallas Cowboys in their 2023 home opener, MetLife Stadium decided to shatter the hopes and dreams of the Jets as well. Gotta love it!
We love a good Eli meme.
Jets fans are currently sobbing.
Oh brother, this guy stinks!
And they're all going to be out buying new TVs this week.
There's no doubt in our minds that some Jets fans destroyed their electronics last night.
Jets fans are also experiencing the five stages of grief.
At first, Jets fans denied Aaron's injury. They quickly grew angry but eventually started praying for his health. However, once they learned he suffered a season-ending injury, they became depressed. Now, all that's left is for them to accept it and move on (but that could take a long time).
Tell us how you really feel, Pat.
That edit button really came in handy, didn't it Pat?
Those four snaps will go down in history.
There will never be anything like it. Ever.
Just absolute pain.
See, even Barbie understands how painful this for every Jets fan.
It's not looking too good...
The next best option? Zach Wilson.
They go hand in hand at this point.
Lets face it — misery will always follow the NY sports community.
Zach Wilson has a lot to prove this season.
Not one person has faith in him, but can Zach prove them wrong? Only time will tell.
Hopefully, he comes back stronger than before!
We wish Aaron a speedy recovery, and hopefully, this isn't a career-ending injury — the superstar QB doesn't deserve to go out like this, so here's to hoping he comes back better than ever.
