The second-year wideout told Dennis Krause of SpectrumNews1 on Friday he didn’t “really see what’s the big difference” between Love being under center from when Rodgers was in 2022.
“I think Jordan can do it,” Doubs said. “I think Jordan is a really good quarterback. When you go from Aaron Rodgers to Jordan, Aaron was a really great quarterback, but I believe Jordan can do the same exact thing.”
Those are some incredibly bold words for a player in Love who remains unproven that will now step into a role vacated by a Super Bowl-winning four-time MVP in Rodgers.
Rodgers, in addition to a title and four of the NFL’s highest trophies, has reached 10 Pro Bowls, passed for nearly 60,000 yards, 475 passing touchdowns, and completed 65.3% of his passing attempts in 15 seasons as a full-time starter.
How fans reacted:
This isn’t the first time a current player has talked about their confidence in Jordan Love.
Aaron Jones previously spoke glowingly about Love and what he thinks he can do in the Packers’ offense.
The Green Bay Packers are in the middle of a franchise-altering off-season. The Aaron Rodgers trade that was finalized just days before the 2023 NFL Draft ushered in a new era in Green Bay.
2023 will be the first time in 31 years that the Green Bay Packers won’t have someone named Brett Favre or Aaron Rodgers under center for week one.
That is going to be a tough bar to clear for any quarterback, let alone one who has attempted just 83 passes for 606 yards, three touchdowns, and three interceptions in 10 games.
