Stephen A. Smith vehemently opposes the idea of Aaron Rodgers returning to play this season, even if he receives medical clearance for what would be a remarkable comeback.

While Rodgers is already back in practice, many believe the risks are too significant, considering his age, the unprecedented nature of his situation, and the New York Jets' 4-7 record. Smith strongly advised the quarterback to relax and continue his appearances on the 'Pat McAfee Show' every Tuesday, urging him to stay away from the football field.

Smith expressed his opinion, stating, "The New York Jets have lost four straight. They're sitting at 4-7. We have nothing to play for. What's the point? Stay at home. Continue your weekly appearances on The Pat McAfee Show. Take it easy... One wrong move, and it could be your Achilles or another injury, and for what? What's the purpose? It's a foolish decision. Stay at home."

Dan Orlovsky suggested that Rodgers could at least play one game to "tick the box" in terms of making history, arguing that it matters to some people. However, Smith remained steadfast in his position.


"What box? He's a Super Bowl champion, a guaranteed future Hall of Famer, one of the greatest quarterbacks in history. Seriously? ... We're talking about playing football for this team. For this team?" he countered.
