Green Bay Packers wide receiver Romeo Doubs expressed his belief that quarterback Jordan Love can be just as good as Aaron Rodgers.
In case you may have missed it, the Green Bay Packers made a change at the quarterback position. Aaron Rodgers, who expressed uncertainty about his playing status after the 2022 season, expressed his desire to play for the New York Jets. A deal was finalized days before the 2023 NFL Draft, and it officially paved the way for the start of the Jordan Love era.
The Packers had high hopes for Love, as they traded up to select him in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, while Rodgers was still with the team. Now, the comparisons between Love and Rodgers will go on for quite some time with the fourth-year quarterback getting his first full-time opportunity as the starter.
During an interview with Dennis Krause of Spectrum News 1, Packers receiver Romeo Doubs was asked if he saw a difference in Love as compared to Rodgers. Doubs said no, and expressed his belief that Love could be just as good as Rodgers.

“I think Jordan can do it. 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. So I don’t really see what’s the big difference,” said Doubs.
Packers fans certainly hope that this will be the case.
In Love’s first two years in Green Bay, he stood on the sidelines behind Rodgers on the depth chart and watched him win back-to-back NFL MVP awards. So, the standard has been set pretty high for Love to be viewed as a success with the Packers.
Love started in just one game for the Packers, and that was in the 2021 season against the Kansas City Chiefs, where he threw for 190 yards, one touchdown, and one interception while completing 19-of-34 pass attempts. In 10 games through his first three years, Love completed 50-of-83 of his passes for 606 yards, three touchdowns, and three interceptions.
This offseason, the Packers signed a one-year, $22.5 million contract extension.
The Packers have high hopes for Love to be the team’s answer at the position for the foreseeable future. Doubs believes he can be as good as Rodgers, who will look to lead the Jets to their second Super Bowl title.
