Charlie McAvoy Pokes Fun at Big Injury In The Sports World

Published September 14, 2023 at 2:55
As NHL training camps approach, Boston Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy, a devoted New York Giants fan, couldn't hide his disappointment after the Giants' devastating 40-0 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in their season opener.

The following night, the New York Jets faced their own setback as quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a torn Achilles tendon just four plays into his debut with the team.

In an interview with ESPN's Greg Wyshynski, a passionate Jets fan, McAvoy didn't mince words about New York football's state after Week 1.

"My Giants might just be broken," McAvoy lamented. "That's the kind of loss that breaks you. You're like, 'Should we even be in this league?' That broke my heart.

"But honestly, you guys (the Jets) are in trouble."

Despite the Jets' optimism, McAvoy, like many football fans, remains skeptical about their prospects with Zach Wilson as the starting quarterback, given Wilson's history of 16 touchdown passes and 19 interceptions in 23 career games.

As the NFL season unfolds, McAvoy will be among the Boston fans supporting the New England Patriots when they face the Jets in Week 3 at MetLife Stadium.
