If 2020 1st and 4th round draft choice Jordan Love does not get snaps for a 2022 Packers team that is not going to the playoffs, then the organization is fundamentally broken.

The only reasons NOT TO START Jordan Love are either (A) Rodgers is in control and won't allow it or (B) Love stinks and the team thus wasted two prime picks on a QB when it could have selected a WR or other players to immediately help the team compete for Super Bowls in 2020 and 2021.

If either or both are true, then the franchise needs a complete re-set.

1. Stokes - wow 6'3 very fast what a great pick.Ya but his brain is in la la land and they found out early on in training camp the guy aint a rocket scientist.
2. Gary - wow a 12 pick and very hyped. Problem is, Gutt didnt pay attention to the fact that Gary was so over hyped he never delivered any where college pundits expected. He was a mid second or early third at best, 12?
3. Wyat - oh he was on GA nat champion team. Ya surrounded by guys making great plays makes you look good too. If he is so good why is he mostly bench sitting? Reason, not bright enough to get it yet.
4. walker - makes some plays but the problem he is confused out there and often makes the wrong play too.
Piss poor drafting is the issue. Love has a noodle arm they discovered and are holding out as far as possible from all of us realizing this.

Unless they finally decide to sit Rodgers due to his thumb injury I doubt that the Packers will sit any player that they are paying $50 million. Thanks, Since '61

I think that we're not going to sit him while we could still make the playoffs. I mean, in 2016, we were 4-6, won our last 6, made the playoffs and went to the Championship game

I get that people are unhappy. But half-billion $$ organizations have an interest in not alienating people who've been a part of their success. Do we want Rodgers throwing shit on the Packers like Favre did? No, we'd like to keep Rodgers in the Packer family, I'm sure, and we're not going to just send him to the bench.

The organization obviously would like to see Love play,and I'm pretty confident that'll happen. But it's going to be done in a way that doesn't disrespect Rodgers.

Leatherhead I think that you're correct. I think AR plays until the Packers are eliminated. There is no way management wants to send the message that they have given up on the season along as they have even the slimmest of chances. Thanks, Since '61

The question is whether, once we are mathematically dead, there is any valid excuse for not playing Love. I can not think of one.

The same goes for players like Tom, Wyatt, Toure, Ford (both) and Rhyan. I’d also want to see some PSers getting chances, Heflin, Abernathy are examples.

Ya that wont fly with the fans, oh we gave the farm to one guy thinking this is the year, one more super bowl lets go get em. But first were shedding three top receivers we drafted and developed and going with the rookie movement. Ya this trip to the super bowl is working well for sure.

If they don't start Love Lafleur should give him a package to provide defenses different looks. A few run - pass options, moving Love outside the pocket could spark an offense searching for different ways to score. The team needs changes to be less predictable and give fans some excitement.

MLF isn't a strong enough coach to bench Swollen head Rodgers. But that would be the right thing to do for the team. All the younger guys should get a shot to play. Gute has done some good things . But when he signed and continues to keep players like Lowery I just don't understand. And he signed Lowery for 8 mill a year or close to it. I hope they clean house with this front office starting with Murphy.

I think the time for worrying about that is gone after elimination. The time has then come for proper evaluation, rather than supposition and unsupported conclusions. Love and other young faces too. Then it’s on to the draft. If we win some? It’s a good sign for the future. If we don’t then better draft position.

Maybe its time reality sets in and the fans get to see the real demise of the packers as we know them.
Funny, the Vikes had three ex packers playing today.
The KC chiefs must have six tight ends and they are all better then anything we have and the irony, none were draft and develop but picked up from other teams via free agency.
No these teams I watched today with winning records and playing good football werent doing it with 6 and 7th rounders but top free agents mixed in with some rookies and veterans.

I think they will use the thumb 'injury' to sit Rodgers-a face-saving move. I can see MLF setting up that scenario.

Here is what I think they should do. I think they should, once again, trade their star QB to the New York Jets in the offseason. They can negotiate something where New York takes on part of the salary for Rodgers, but not an incredulously large amount that would dissuade a trade.

The Jets have a great roster - an elite Defense, a great pass-catching corps, stars at RB, and studs along the O-line. The only problem with them being contenders is that Zach Wilson sucks. Really really badly. If they were to land Rodgers, they would immediately become contenders. Rodgers would like having lots of good pass-catching options and being able to contend once again, and we would get (hopefully) a first-round pick in return to assist our rebuild around Jordan Love

I wouldn't pay Jordan Love 20 million next year. Think about that first. The best thing for the Packers, and Rodger's Rookie WRs, is to keep playing him.

You have been anti- Jordan Love since the night he was drafted. You have continued this non-logical stance ad nauseum ever since without any logic, or evidence why he will not be a good QB for the Packers. It gets tiring!

None of us fans know whether Jordan Love will be a good, or great QB as we don't have enough information to make a full determination. Some of you seem extremely afraid to allow Love an extended opportunity to play in order for all of us to make knowledgeable evaluations of him. What I do know is we have an ALL PRO middle linebacker on the Packer defense who goes up against Jordan Love daily who sings Love's praises and claims Love is better than a number of starting QBs in the league right now. Oh yea, that just turned 24 year old QB, Jordan Love. Let's see....do I take your view/position of Jordan Love, or do I take an All Pro's (Campbell's) view/position who watches and plays against Jordan the last couple of years?

I say....it is time to play Jordan Love for the next five games to see what we have in him before the May 1st decision of whether his contract should be extended and he receives $20,000,000. Jordan Love has earned the opportunity, plus us Packer fans want to know. To do otherwise would be football malpractice!
