Many Green Bay Packers are remorseful about their previous Aaron Rodgers take here in Week 8 after the team is off to a disappointing 2-4 start. The Jordan Love era has gotten off to a slow start.
Matt Schneidman of The Athletic posted some feedback he received from Packers fans on regret about the end of Rodgers’ tenure in Green Bay.

Week 8 is premature to decide if the blame lies with the Packers’ management or with Love. Love hasn’t played well, but he doesn’t have enough skilled talent around him to have an elite offense.
However, the Packers didn’t need to have an elite offense to score points on the Denver Broncos Sunday. It’s inexcusable for the Packers to be shut out at the half against the league’s worst defense, especially given that Green Bay came off a bye.
Love shares in the blame for that. He also is to blame for throwing two game-ending interceptions in back-to-back contests. Unfortunately for the Packers this summer, late turnovers and mishaps were common in training camp.
Green Bay Packers fans miss Rodgers after 2-4 start
One narrative was clear amongst most Packers fans following the Rodgers trade: Fans wanted to see how the offense would play in head coach Matt LaFleur’s system under Love.
It’s been awful so far.
Rodgers, while being an attention-seeking diva, is an elite quarterback. The Packers would be in a much better position if he were under center this season. And some fans who were ready for the distraction to leave are eating their comments in Week 8.
Here are the best takes on X of Packers fans having remorse on the Rodgers trade.
A lot of Green Bay media needs to start apologizing and start criticizing gute asap

Man enough to admit when I’m wrong. I was wrong about Jordan Love and Matt LaFleur. I love my packers but I cannot rock with Matt LaFleur or Jordan love anymore the coaching/development is horrible
Aaron Rodgers masked a lot of LaFleur bad coaching and this game proves it. https://t.co/N1vrqfjbSx

Remember Matt’s first year, when the Packers had Aaron Rodgers, a bunch of shiny defensive upgrades, and a DC who wasn’t Joe Barry, and the Packers kept “winning ugly?”
It feels a lot like that, but without the winning. These are ugly games.
Love just isn’t the QB 12 was then.

Live stream directly into most Packers fans brains yesterday. Harsh dose of reality.

Aaron Rodgers basically carried the players, coaches, and GM on his back for the last decade. This organization is getting exposed now. 😒

Aaron Rodgers was the only reason the Packers were relevant for the past couple years. Terrible negligence wasting a league MVP year after year.

Oh also, as I’ve been saying all off-season, Matt Lafluer is a bad head coach. He has been exposed this year. Aaron Rodgers made him look good. This is tending in the wrong direction for the Packers. #FireLafluer
