Packers RB Aaron Jones hails Jordan Love’s patience ahead of taking over as post-Aaron Rodgers era QB: “He did it the right way, waited his turn”

It’s not simple to fill in for the four-time MVP, Aaron Rodgers. Jordan Love finally replaced Aaron Rodgers as the Packers’ starting quarterback with the passage of time thanks to his astonishing and game-changing abilities. This seems as thrilling for Aaron Jones as it is for the rest of us, and he recently shared his feelings.

A-rod enjoyed a successful career in Green Bay, the team he played for 15 years as a starting quarterback, led the team to win a super bowl, and broke numerous records during his tenure with the Packers.

Jordan Love collected huge support from Jones

The Utah State player was taken by Green Bay in the first round (No. 26 overall) of the 2020 NFL Draft. The quarterback observed, picked up tips from, and seemingly obtained almost everything he could experience from the 39-year-old, sitting behind Rodgers the previous three years.

Love has demonstrated a great deal of patience and confidence during this time, and Jones believes that this is the reason for his success today. He also described Love as a diligent quarterback who never misses an opportunity to get better.

“He believes in himself, first off,” he said. “That’s No. 1. You’ve got to believe in yourself or nobody else is going to believe in you. He believes in himself, he cares about everybody around him and we’ve seen him just come in consistently and just work, work, work. As an athlete, you want to come in and play right away. That wasn’t Jordan’s case, he didn’t have that opportunity. He did it the right way, he waited his time and you never heard one peep or complaint out of him.”

Jordan has played in 10 games for the Packers, making one start, but he earned praise when he swapped Rodgers against the NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles last season and created two second-half touchdown drives in the eventual 40-33 defeat.

The 24-year-old’s career at Utah State places him third in completion percentage and second all-time in passing yards, completions, and attempts. He is also tied for second all-time in touchdown passes. Due to his exceptional quarterback abilities, he was named All-Mountain West (2019); Phil Steele’s Magazine, Second-Team All-Mountain West in 2018, Third-Team All-Mountain West in 2019, and so forth.

Jordan still seems to have a long career ahead so it might be too soon to come to any definitive conclusion regarding him.
