Gutenkunst likely engaging in typical fluff talk, otherwise he's delusional. If Rodgers retires or goes to another team the Packers will be one of the worst teams in the league from a CF perspective and their W-L will likely suffer as well:
Packers GM Brian Gutekunst said he'd "absolutely" be comfortable if Jordan Love starts for the Packers in Week 1.“I think he’s ready to play and I think he’s ready to be an NFL starting quarterback. Not every quarterback comes into this league ready to go out there and play. I think he needed a little time, but over the last year and a half or so, we’ve seen that’s the next step in his progression. He needs to go out and play," Gutenkunst elaborated. It's been suggested by Matt Schneidman that Love could ask for a trade if Aaron Rodgers returns to the Packers. The delicate tight-rope walk of non-committal by Gutekunst is probably about not stepping on Love's toes as much as it is leaving things open for Rodgers to return.
The amount of ass kissing by the owners, coach's and scouts shows just how well the propaganda and indocrination has worked in sports
as in society. They all move in lock step towards their goals.
To think that Jordan Love is just gonna put down his clip board and become a good starting qb at this point doesn't make much sense
to me. Why do I know? If Love plays he may become an mediocre qb at best. I could be wrong but countless others just don't see the
talent their either. This in my opinion is about replacing an all time legendary quarterback with a black qb regardless of qualifications.
They have changed the rules and offenses however to help these magical smile qb's. Geno Smiff is proof of that and it's really helped
guys lower on the bell curve of scholastics. Just my opinion. Hope Rodgers comes back and retires as a Packer. That's how it should
end out. If not I hope for his sake he can go to a playoff potential team.
