Jermichael Finley: Packers should be prepared to switch to Jordan Love by Week Four
It is far too early for the Packers to panic. Former Packers tight end Jermichael Finley believes panic may soon be warranted.
Finley was open about quarterback Aaron Rodgers after Green Bay's embarrassing performance against the Saints.
Previously, Finley said that Rodgers "looks tired" and that he has apparently lost his "hunger" to play. Now, Finley says, the Packers should be ready to switch to Plan B if Rodgers lost him.
"If you don't see it, let's go to [Jordan] Love," Finley said.
Finley said Rodgers should be given four weeks to show he still has it. If he doesn't then go with love.
"They have one of the highest paying backup quarterbacks sitting right behind Aaron Rodgers, so you might as well use him and keep him going for the future," said Finley.
That assumes a lot. There's no reason to believe the Packers won't change things on Monday night when their departmental punching bags known as the Detroit Lions return to town.
If the Packers look like they did six days in two days, Finley may be on the trail. However, the likelihood of this seems very small.
The Packers follow their no-goodbye to the Lions with a trip to California to take on the 49ers and a visit from the Steelers. At this point, a 1-3 start is out of the question for a team with 13-3 consecutive seasons.
