Sorry, Jets fans … Randy Moss says despite New York’s huge offseason, Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs are still the team to beat in the AFC. But, the NFL legend tells TMZ Sports he’s stoked for the year NY is about to have regardless … saying he can feel a completely different energy emanating from the Big Apple after the arrival of Aaron Rodgers.
Moss, who works in New York for his role as an ESPN analyst, expressed his excitement for the Jets and their potential under Rodgers. He mentions feeling a buzz around the team even when they were down, and now he believes that buzz is turning into anticipation for big things from the organization.
Moss is particularly impressed with the way Rodgers has seamlessly integrated himself into his new team and community. He notes that Rodgers’ body language and demeanor are different from what he has seen in the past. This change in behavior could have a significant impact on the team’s performance and overall atmosphere.
According to Moss, Rodgers’ presence could potentially lead to an MVP-type caliber season for the 39-year-old quarterback. The sky’s the limit for the New York Jets, in Moss’ opinion.
Despite his enthusiasm for the Jets and Rodgers, Moss still sees the Kansas City Chiefs as the team to beat in the AFC. While he acknowledges the improvements the Jets have made in the offseason, he believes that Mahomes and the Chiefs are still the favorites to win the conference title this year.
The Jets will have an opportunity to prove Moss wrong in just a few weeks. They are scheduled to face the Chiefs in Week 4 on October 1st, in a highly anticipated game.
The arrival of Aaron Rodgers has undoubtedly brought a new energy to the New York Jets. Moss’ observations of Rodgers’ integration into the team and community indicate a positive shift that may contribute to the team’s success.
However, it remains to be seen if the Jets, with Rodgers at the helm, can dethrone the formidable Kansas City Chiefs. While Moss recognizes the Jets’ potential, he still considers Mahomes and his team the favorites in the AFC.
Jets fans will have to wait and watch as the season unfolds to see if Rodgers can lead their team to AFC dominance. The game against the Chiefs will serve as a crucial test for the Jets and their newfound energy.
