It’s the Jordan Love show now with the Green Bay Packers, having officially taken over the starter’s role after Aaron Rodgers was dealt to the New York Jets.

Rodgers is out for the season after suffering a ruptured Achilles just four plays into his Jets debut last month, meaning he will have plenty more time to pay attention to how his successor in Green Bay performs in 2023. 

And according to Packers icon Donald Driver, it was time for the Packers and Rodgers to part ways. 

"I’m not gonna say they made the right decision, and I’m not gonna say they made the wrong decision. There comes a point where both sides has to be happy. It’s like a marriage," Driver said. "Both sides have to be happy, and if one side isn’t happy, they’re gonna break up. I think that’s what happened. I think it got to a point where both sides wasn’t happy, and they decided to part ways."

"At the end of the day, Green Bay Packers fans, we have been spoiled. We’ve had two Hall of Fame quarterbacks over the last 30 years. You can’t complain about that, right? And both of them turned out to be Hall of Famers and great players. But Jordan Love can be that, too. 

"It’s gonna take him time. I think the Packers organization is willing to give him time. He sat three years behind Aaron. Aaron sat two or three years behind Brett. So, it’s a learning thing. It’s a process. Jordan Love has gotta have the talent around him to be successful. That’s what it’s gonna take."

The good news is that in Driver's mind, Love will be just find in his role as Rodger's successor. Do you agree with Driver that it was simply the time for the two sides to part ways after a long marriage?
