The Green Bay Packers appear to have quite the decision looming: do they hand over the keys to Jordan Love or roll with Aaron Rodgers for one more year. Of course, their decision is highly dependent on whether or not Rodgers even wants to play football at all in 2023. Then again, perhaps the Packers are going to go with Love at quarterback regardless of what Rodgers decides. During his media session at the NFL Combine, Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said that starting is the next step in Love’s progression. He also added that Love is ready for such a step.
Former Green Bay Packers Fullback John Kuhn Says the Team Should Just Go For It
John Kuhn was on the Packers when the team decided to transition from Brett Favre to Rodgers. He has a much clearer perspective of the situation than most fans do. Here is what Kuhn had to say about Gutekunst’s comments at the NFL Combine regarding Love:
“This is the deal. They do have what they believe to be two great commodities right now. And when you have two great commodities, you don’t need to keep both of them. You need to go that way. They’ve done that for three years. They did that with Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers as well and look how Rodgers turned out.
“Not saying Jordan Love is going to turn out to be that way. Only the Packers have a feel or a belief about what Jordan Love could potentially be. But if Brian Gutekunst feels like, and he is truly honest about Jordan Love being comfortable at quarterback one to go into 2023, this is the time. This is the time to make the move and this is the time to move on and see Jordan Love finally play.”
Kuhn’s comments, of course, were made on his show “Nine 2 Noon” which he co-hosts with Wisconsin Badgers legend Brian Butch on 97.3 The Game.
