The Packers CEO shares optimistic expectations for the post-Aaron Rodgers era and underscores the players’ positive reception of Jordan Love
Amid the rumored departure of star quarterback Aaron Rodgers from the Green Bay Packers, the team’s CEO Mark Murphy shared his optimistic expectations for the team’s future, citing the positive reception Jordan Love has had among players.
2011 Associated Press Athlete of the Year Aaron won 6-10 in 2008, the year he was selected as the starting QB by the Packers, replacing Brett Favre.
The 10-time Pro Bowler led the Packers to the 2011 Super Bowl title over Pittsburgh and holds several records with the team, including passing yards in a season, most touchdown passes and total touchdowns in a season, and highest percentage at end of the season.
However, both the former Super Bowl champ and the Packers seem indifferent to continuing their golden past as the team paves the way for young QB Jordan Love, and Aaron himself publicly stated his intention to join the Jets this season to join squad.
What did the Packers CEO say about the post-Aaron Rodgers era?
WFRV esports reporter Kyle Malzhan shared Packers CEO Mark Murphy’s optimistic words after the Rodgers era via Twitter.
#Packer President/CEO Mark Murphy on how he expects the dressing room to handle Aaron Rodgers’ QB move to Jordan Love: “It’s a big change. I think our players are excited. The majority of our players are close to Jordan. You like him & you want him to succeed.”

Although Jordan Love was drafted in 2020, he did not play any games that year, then he appeared in 6 games in 2021, so he is undoubtedly too fast to be voted over A-Rod’s level of play. The young star is 50-to-83 with a 60.2 completion percentage with 3 touchdowns, 3 interceptions and 3 fumbles.
While fans might be expecting promising QB Love Jordan to fill the four-time MVP’s gap, Packers coach Matt LaFleur is realistic given his lack of experience, particularly as a main offensive leader, and urged at the NFL owners meeting to limit expectations 24 years as he prepares to be a full-time starter for the first time in his career.
While many fans were initially skeptical of Love’s ability to fill in Rodgers’ shoes, the Packers’ CEO and coach’s comments show their confidence in the young quarterback. Packers fans will surely be excited to see how Love fares next season and if he can live up to his predecessor’s high expectations.
With Jordan Love’s promising potential and a roster full of talented players, the Packers could be poised for continued success in the years to come.
