Packers CEO gives Jordan Love the most lukewarm endorsement possible

Green Bay Packers CEO Mark Murphy didn’t help convince fans that Jordan Love is worth the investment with a tepid take on the QB.

The Packers are pushing forward with Aaron Rodgers as the starting quarterback and Jordan Love as a backup.

The latter, for some inexplicable reason, is still not being done any favors by talking about him in the media.

CEO Mark Murphy appeared in Packast with Tom Grossi and spoke about love on the contrary in glowing terms.

“I think this preseason is important for him,” Murphy said. “We believe he can be a good player but we haven’t seen enough yet. So I think this pre-season will be good for him.”

Love is a backup, so Murphy doesn’t have to pretend he’s the second coming or anything, but it would be nice if he had something more positive to say than “we think he can be a good player.”

At this point, such talk can even hurt Love’s commercial value.

Murphy had more to say about Love when he was drafted by the Packers, which doesn’t inspire more confidence.

“He’s a talented player. I know the decision to draft him was questioned by a number of people, but it’s such an important position in our league that investing future assets in that position… They said the same thing when we called Aaron up [Rodgers]’ Murphy said.

However, there was one big difference when the Packers drew Rodgers and Love.

Rodgers was the second-best quarterback in the draft behind Alex Smith. He was in contention for No. 1 overall. He was apparently worthy of an early first-round pick. Then he fell and Green Bay took advantage.

With Love, the Packers traded in the first round to pick him up, but he was the fourth quarterback off the board and well outside the front row of quarterback prospects including Joe Burrow, Tua Tagovailoa and Justin Herbert. Where the Rodgers selection felt like a gift, Love’s selection felt like a stretch.

All of which makes Green Bay’s approach to love all the stranger. If they went to get him, shouldn’t they be more certain of his worth by now?

You shouldn’t have to argue about whether or not he’s the quarterback of the future. They should be able to say that with confidence.

No wonder no one is convinced of Love’s future with the team if the team themselves aren’t giving him their fullest support.
