Alright guys, do I need to start getting hyped for real here? Last night a player for the chargers was caught on camera asking Arod when he is coming back. his answer was "a few weeks"

a date of 12-28 has also been talked about recently.

is this really happening? it seems impossible

    The Jets do technically have a chance at the playoffs. Realistically, I'm not so sure.

    But in any event, in my opinion, Rodgers would be crazy for coming back this season. Even if he feels like he may be healed up by that date, he should just milk it, and wait for next season to return.

    I could see him thinking his holistic or whatever type of black magic therapy he is involved in making him think it's ok and coming back only to re injure himself and then having to call it quits.

    It's a shame because even though I don't care for the Jets it would have been fun to see them.beat up on the division, like I think they would have easily leapfrogged Buffalo and Miami, the Pats were always out of the equation anyways

    If Jets are out of contention why risk it. Nothing to gain.

    He might have been being a little optimistic, but its not like hes sitting in a waiting room for 20 minutes twice a week for physical therapy like a normal person would. When Tua destroyed his ankle Alabama Drs developed a new surgery that got him back on the field way ahead of schedule. Rodgers had his surgery done by Neal ElAttrache whose one of a handful of doctors that get to work on high level athletes. He also used an advanced procedure thats not really available to the general public and only a handful of people can do.

    Rodgers also has access to zero gravity treadmills, hyperbaric chambers/bags, nutritionists adjusting his diet to maximize hormone levels which are almost certainly being monitored regularly, own PT staff etc. The level of care top athletes get blows the care the general public gets out of the water.

    The other thing that never gets talked about either, he might also be taking HGH or similar things to accelerate it. QBs especially the big name ones rarely if ever get "randomly" selected for testing. The NFL isnt dumb, they know the league depends on good QB play.

    I wouldnt expect him back if they fall out of the playoff race

    Rogers needs to spend a full off season in rehab if he comes back at all.

    My mother in law broke her Achilles tendon and actually managed to rip it a second time. It’s nothing fool with.

    Yeah, I'm guessing he was just being sarcastic.

    You gotta feel bad for Jets fans, so much hope at the beginning of the season, and now they must settle for a quarterback that looks like he belongs on the cover of a 6th grade math book.

    This is what a real quarterback looks like!

    All this makes sense but he is 40 not 27.

    He can do all of this but at 40 the body is much more unforgiving

    For sure recovery at that age is harder, but the fact he was still one of the better QBs in the league at the age of 40 also means hes not the average 40 year old. I was very skeptical of his ability to come back until seeing him doing things in his recovery at much earlier dates than they should have been.

    I dont know if he will come back this season. He is ahead of schedule on a a lot of things and did get a better surgery so I wouldnt rule it out at this point.

    I dont know if Arod will be back this season. But I do know I am rooting for him, and it definitely gives me something to think about. It sure would shake up the surgery/rehab world if a 40-year-old athlete could tear his Achilles tendon and come back to the field in only 4 months.

    Am I the only one here that feels that when someone misses work because of an injury, they should go back to work as soon as they are healed?
