NFL fans continue to react to the insanity of the Packers using a first-round pick on Jordan Love in 2020.
Aaron Rodgers is the clear NFL MVP and had arguably the best season of his career. That is why fans are losing it on Twitter following the game with continued reaction to the fact the Packers used their 2020 first-round pick on quarterback Jordan Love. Was it all some wild conspiracy to inspire Rodgers?
Fans react in ongoing disbelief over the Love selection
The Packers could have taken a wide receiver or literally anyone who was ready to contribute to the team in 2020. Instead, they saw Love as a player they just couldn’t pass up and put Rodgers’ time in Green Bay on the clock. Naturally, he went out and had the best season of anyone in the NFL.
Rodgers now has the Packers back in the NFC title game for the second straight season and is showing no signs of slowing down at the age of 37. He threw for 296 yards and two touchdowns Saturday in the win over the Rams and even ran for a score as well.
There is the argument to make that the Packers took Love and are still fighting for a Super Bowl, so his selection didn’t tank the season. However, there will be plenty of other quarterbacks to take in the coming years if Rodgers can continue to look great for 3-5 more years.
Next up for Rodgers is a showdown against either Tom Brady or Drew Brees with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. Players like Love may be ready to play, but the old guard at quarterback in the NFC are out to prove they aren’t done yet.
