Future Hall of Fame quarterback for the New York Jets Aaron Rodgers is controversial figure in sports because he says what he means, means what he says and doesn’t just blindly parrot the pre-approved talking points that the NFL is very well known for (see the NFL’s racism messages in every team’s end zone).

Just a few plays into his first game for a team not named the Green Bay Packers, Rodgers went down with a torn Achilles tendon, which usually means that’s the end of your season.

Since having surgery to repair the injury, Rodgers has undertaken a very stringent and aggressive rehab, even hinting that he could conceivably come back to the Jets this season. But it’s one of the motivators in his rehab “mindset” that’s encouraging.

“This is just my mindset,” Rodgers said on Tuesday’s edition of “The Pat McAfee Show. “I believe in the power of intention. I believe in prayer. I believe in your mental status and the power of will. I believe in making room for the miraculous to happen.”

For someone that went to Cal-Berkeley, and someone who’s been famous for the majority of his adult life, it’s nice to hear that Rodgers believes in the power of “prayer.”

It remains to be seen if the combination of his prayers and hard work will enable the all-time great to suit up this season, but we’ll keep his recovery in our prayers as well.
