Yep! Excited to see it! I doubt we'll see Love change many plays at the line like I suspect Rodgers does.

Love did not look too bad against backups during in his couple of games in preseason. Yet he missed a game with injury. So us fans don’t have a real clue what he will be able to do during a real game.

He actually played against a bunch of starters in Buffalo and held up pretty well, save for the one really bad play on the interception.

Jordan Love was great in college. No reason to think Gute swung and missed on this one when you consider all the other hits he's had: Rasul, Jaire, Cobb, the ILBs

GPG!

Well, I have to tell you I don't Love this news at all. However, I do Love that Love has a chance to show Packer Nation that he can play and it's not too big for him, especially if we get the W, I would Love that! GPG!

Rodgers if not vaccinated by nfl rules has to wear mask at all pressers on field after game and at practice if not in play. Wait till NFL finds out about the Halloween party. Fines and maybe suspension?

Didn't the team allow him to do this? And what about the NFL? Sure, perhaps Aaron may get suspended or be forced to sit out but Green Bay may suffer harder in the long run. Only time will tell

Rodgers deliberately misled the fans and the media alike. When you reply to a reporter asking whether you've been vaccinated that you've been "immunized" you are lying. Immunization is the result of vaccination. If you say you're immunized then you are saying that you have been vaccinated since a vaccination results in immunity. Homeopathic medicine does not give anyone immunity against anything!

I'm shocked that a man of his intelligence and integrity would choose not to get vaxxed. Tremendously disappointing and irresponsible. According to the NFL, 94% of players are vaccinated. At least that speaks to the commitment of most players which makes Rodgers' apparent homeopathic attempt at "vaccination" a pathetic delusion.

I'm sure the anti-vaxxer MAGA people out there in the commentariat will defend his choice. But we live in an age of disinformation and irrational fear. When the polio vaccine was developed, did people see it as a matter of personal choice? No, it was seen as a matter of necessity and social responsibility to helping protect one's fellow human being. What was AR12 thinking? ESPN is reporting that Rodgers sought an alternative homeopathic treatment that raised his "immune level" and thus causing him to believe that was "immunized" and wanted the NFL to consider him vaccinated which they apparently refused. Perhaps this is all speculation. But so much for the power of mind management, Buddhist tranquility, and Zen living. Anyone can check the statistics about how unvaccinated individuals are 9 times more likely to be hospitalized with severe COVID.

How did getting the Vaccine help Adams and Barry any, if they got sick too and may very well have given it to Rodgers? Maybe you should quit acting like a medical expert here let people make there own medical decisions and focus on Football instead of injecting politics into it, which nobody wants to hear.

Rodgers acts like he's smart, but his actions often show that off the field, he really isn't. I'm sure his family would agree.

Rodgers made a past statement that he was immunized he never said vaccinated , yet people here want him cut and suspended , grow up , he also never said he wanted off the Packers but I guess there's a lot of love here for Adam Schefter, all the diva talk is just childish , the Packers can beat the chiefs with a good run game and solid defense, they could hardly beat the Giants who were decimated at the skill positions, RELAX !

This will be a good test for Green Bay either way. Might actually work to Aaron's benefit if he took a few weeks off. Lord knows he got us to 7-1 with Gute's draft picks and FA pickups, so anything that happens from here would automatically be on the rest of them. Especially considering they knew about his vaccination status. Kinda makes you think how ALL IN they are with Love....nobody to rescue them for at least a week, maybe more.

there pass rush was ferocious. their very fast running backs lit it up in the flats.
Packers are in serioys trouble, lets chalk this up to Rodger's and HOPE we dont have more end of season injuries in a game we couldnt win because of his diva anti vax attitude.
ps just because he has covid doesn't man he wont be sick. we have no idea the effect hut his immunization didnt work did it

Evidently not! But I feel cheated by Rodgers in the sense that I never expected his Zen Buddhist maximum chill philosophy to make him doubt the science and choose strange potions from quack homeopaths to "immunize" him from COVID. This is kook thinking and I thought AR12 was far above that. I am particularly disturbed by his "immunized" remark which was clearly a deliberate deception leading the public to believe that he had in fact been vaccinated and chose a clever synonym to reflect that status. Given the pandemic era, just be a man and say whether you're vaccinated or not - particularly after his six months of reflection regarding his intention to play for the Packers this season or not.

AR12 has set himself up for a storm of criticism by prevaricating about his vaccination status. One could also make the case that he lied, period, by choosing the synonym "immunized" for vaccinated so he could curry public favour by suggesting that he was vaccinated when he was not. Further, he may violated NFL protocols by not masking up during media sessions and in other Packers practice activities. The result is that he may have irreparably tarnished his legacy when many people were already beginning to see him as an arrogant egotist owing to his six months keeping the public in suspense over whether he would return to the Packers. He has let his team down, he has let Packers fans down, and he has created yet another needless distraction for a team that was on the verge of reaching its potential. And all because he is too dumb - yes, dumb - to get the jab that 94% of NFL players have accepted.

I am intrigued to read all the moral blabbering on both sides . I look forward to seeing Kenny Clark and Dean Lowry pin Rodgers to a wall as he gets the jab and Aaron Jones kicks his balls. Then they they leave him hanging before the Pack beat the Chiefs with Love and a Hell of a ground game and defense. Rodgers hypocrisy here and failure to the Packer's ranks up their with so many things including Favre's dick pics to the Jet's worker. Football is in so many ways a gross if engrossing entertainment. It echoes back to my days as a bit of a nerdist intellectual type who played tennis , basketball and ran track but never was one of the jocks .GPG since ' 21
