“If you don’t learn from history, then you are doomed to repeat it.” It’s a popular quote that we all know, and it also just so happens to summarize the Green Bay Packers in the past couple of decades. They had Brett Favre and undermined him and his ego by taking Aaron Rodgers in the Draft.
They then saw Rodgers blossom into the best quarterback in the league, for many, only to do generally the same sort of thing in the 2020 Draft. And as such, Rodgers has acknowledged, that like Favre, his career might not end in the frozen tundra that is Green Bay as a result. He said he was “surprised” about the team taking Jordan Love, after trading up to get him at #26, but he did also say that he understood it. He also stated that he does intend on finishing his playing days there, but he did make sure to say that it “may not be a reality at this point.” Obviously, he is hinting at the idea that Love will eventually take over, much like he did for Favre. For the Packers, they can only hope Love will be as good as the two that came before him- if and when the move is made, that is.
