Few will give the Green Bay Packers a chance without Aaron Rodgers, but their potential starting lineup is an exciting one.
The Green Bay Packers could have several new starters this season as they begin a new era.
Just because the Packers won't have Aaron Rodgers starting at quarterback anymore, it doesn't mean they can't compete in the NFC North. They still have star players across their roster on both sides of the ball.
Whether the Packers become regular playoff contenders will mostly depend on whether Jordan Love can become a quality starting quarterback. We'll see.
When putting together a projected starting lineup, it's clear how much talent the Packers have, especially when factoring in the players who didn't make the 11 on either side of the ball. With that in mind, here's a potential starting lineup for the Packers in 2023.
Quarterback: Jordan Love
Jordan Love: Green Bay Packers starting quarterback.
Love has patiently waited for his opportunity, and here it is. This day was coming from the moment the Packers traded up to get him in 2020. The decision to trade Aaron Rodgers shows their confidence in Love, who has improved each year in the NFL.
An impressive fourth-quarter performance against the Philadelphia Eagles when replacing an injured Aaron Rodgers last season showed Love's potential.
With Rodgers gone, it's Love's job.
