New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers had some select words for people that are buying into the conspiracy theory that he never tore his achilles.

The origin of the theory was first made famous by The Dan LeBatard Show with Stugotz when one of the producers on the show (jokingly) threw out the idea that Rodgers never tore his achilles. Hot take machine Colin Cowherd also added in his two cents on the matter at some point, asking how it was possible that he was healing so fast.

To be honest, that’s something that a lot of people in the sports world are wondering. Before Rodgers, the fastest player to recover from an achilles tear was NFL running back Cam Akers, who came back in just under six months.

Aaron is on pace to return to the field in just around three months, and was just recently upgraded from the Jets’ injury reserve to resume practicing with the team. If you don’t believe me, here’s video proof from earlier today:

So now, you’ll be seeing videos of Aaron Rodgers practicing on your timeline probably as much as you’ll see clips of Rodgers’ weekly guest spots on The Pat McAfee Show. Even if you don’t watch the chaotic, comedic-informative show led by Pat McAfee, you’ve probably seen plenty of clips of it online.

And one that has really been making the rounds is this one from Rodgers’ latest stop on the show. McAfee asked how Rodgers felt towards those who don’t believe he tore his achilles, as well as if we’ll ever see photographic proof of the injury (just look up the video of his achilles popping if you need that).

Rodgers responded by saying this:

“Let me just say, to anyone out there that doesn’t think I tore my achilles, G.F.Y.

First word is go, and the last word is yourself. The middle is probably what you are not doing living in your parent’s basement.”

Yeah, I think it’s safe to say that Aaron Rodgers is saying anything that’s on his mind at this point in his career. Why not right? He’s the one that’s been aggressively rehabbing every day for three months, and is somehow going to come back and play for the New York Jets.
