Started at a new job at the end of November. Last week was my first week on the floor after classroom training. Come into work today to see someone that I didnt see at all last week (found out he was sick). Coworker asks me about the game yesterday while explaining he's also a Packers fan. Then the next words out of his mouth are "We need Aaron back bad, Love just ain't getting us anywhere."

Send help y'all!

Perhaps you can look at this as an opportunity to educate him on the sport. You may start with a common ground statement...something like, "Yes, Rodgers was wonderful and it is clear he carried this team for a long time as the talent around him was clearly not championship calibre."

This would be preferred to "Hey you stupid bastard, Rodgers has almost nothing left in the tank!!! We have to get younger and Love is showing great promise. No go home and get your shine box."

I wish you good luck.

Go Packers!!!!

You're familiar with submitting notice of resignation, yes? Cite hostile work environment as reason for departure.

I cant say anything bad about Rodgers. I loved him as a packers QB and I still wish him the best. That dude can ball no doubt. All good things come to an end.

That's the thing, he even acknowledged that Rodgers didnt play well towards the end and was taking up tons of cap space. I think he's one of those "we need a 1st round WR" every year types who doesnt want to admit Love could be really good.

You're familiar with submitting notice of resignation, yes? Cute hostile work environment as reason for departure.

I dont think differences in who should start at QB for the Packers would qualify me for unemployment. 😅😬

Update on my coworker who's a Packers fan

Encounter #1 a few weeks ago

Coworker asked me if I thought Love would be QB after this season. Me, spending too much time here and on the Packers Twittersphere, reply that they'll probably give an extension this offseason since Love is under contract only for next season. Coworker isn't sure if that's a good idea.

Encounter #2 this week

Coworker shows April Fools joke picture saying Green Bay has traded for Aaron Rodgers. Coworker states that he thinks it would be better with Rodgers at QB and that Love didn't get it done in the crunch time last year and vs San Fran. I try to argue you gotta give Love more than a season. After all, the Packers missed the playoffs Rodgers 1st year as starter and didn't win a playoff game until his 3rd.

I don't know how you can look at how this offense performed last year with all the young guys, look at all the progress made during the season and go "We need to go in another direction after just one year with Love." Guys, SEND HELP!!!

If one is being realistic, after that horrible early/middle section, there is no way you could of expected them to make the playoffs, and they did. Yes, they were only a 7th seed... but they also became the first 7th seed in NFL history to win a playoff game (and making the Cowboys the first in NFL history to lose to a 7th seed which is just bonus points, thanks Jerry for damning a 7th seed be added.)

When has Rodgers beaten San Francisco in the playoffs? He's 0-4 against the 49ers in the playoffs.

Some of Love's passes clearly don't look pretty, but after they finally started getting their OL healthy and got Tuesday night players only review going at Love's place, at least for the receivers, the offense took off... and I believe they kept it going without Jones, Watson and Musgrave.

I'm not saying Love will be winning any MVP awards, but Love got the job done and maybe more surprising and impressive to me is simply how the teammates talk about Jordan....

Yes they talk about him being a star QB... but that's not what I'm talking about, they keep going in extra minor stuff, but when you start piecing them together, it seems like the guys have extra love for Jordan as a teammate... which I didn't feel with Rodgers. Not that anyone outside of Jennings, Finely, Sternbuger and mental case KGB ever said anything wrong about Rodgers.

But they seems to truly appreciate Love extra, as a person for some reason, which I can't explain, but they want to go extra in defending him with the questions. So I feel like Jordan has been great at making personal connections with guys.

Some Biblical advice...
Do not answer a fool according to his folly,
Lest you also be like him.
Answer a fool according to his folly,
Lest he be wise in his own eyes.

which I interpret to mean...you can't win with a fool.
Go Packers!!!!

Clearly your co worker is a Rodgers fan. Just remind him that if we took his advice, Rodgers would of never seen 2009 and beyond. Love did better with less his first year.

If he continues, kindly ask him to piss off as hes not a packers fan

buckeyepackfan (22-May) : Tom and Kraft both injured(pectoral muscle),
Zero2Cool (20-May) : I feel similar about person and product/service.
beast (17-May) : Not sure why a players views reflect on GB... instead of simply on the player
Martha Careful (17-May) : I bet some of us have had 6+ mRNA jabs, a UKR flag on our walls, and still think Fauci has a thread of integrity
Zero2Cool (16-May) : From what I've read, it's all Jets , not us.
CanPackFan (16-May) : Will there ever be a time when Rodgers' whacko views will not reflect on GB? He is the past, thank god.
Zero2Cool (16-May) : Jan 4th gonna be rough with that start time lol
Zero2Cool (16-May) : Packers schedule listed. Boom.

Zero2Cool (13-May) : I know we moved on. That tidbit just makes me a touch happier.
Zero2Cool (13-May) : Sources spoke of many, many times last summer where Hackett called a play, then Rodgers changed it completely at the line
Martha Careful (10-May) : 1. this is true of all our linemen. 2. His run block is fine. 3. If all OL played like he has, we would win SB.
beast (10-May) : Meyers pass blocking is really good, his run blocking is really not.
Zero2Cool (9-May) : Packers have claimed DE Spencer Waege off of waivers from the 49ers and waived DT Rodney Mathews.

buckeyepackfan (6-May) : The Green Bay Packers have signed WR Julian Hicks, OL Lecitus Smith (luh-SEET-us) and WR Dimitri Stanley
