The Green Bay Packers have had their share of battles with Richard Sherman over the years. He played a vital role for the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers during playoff matchups with the Packers.
Sherman was a phenomenal player and had many great games against Green Bay. However, he didn't do much to endear himself to Packers fans over the years, from criticizing Green Bay's preparation for the 2019 NFC Championship Game to his cheap shot on Davante Adams during a 2016 regular-season matchup.
The five-time All-Pro cornerback was critical of the Packers' decision to trade Aaron Rodgers in the spring.
And his latest comments won't go down too well with Packers fans.
Richard Sherman is already writing off Packers QB Jordan Love
The Packers have been tough to watch this season. The offense is a mess, and Green Bay has lost four in a row. Speaking on his podcast on Monday, Sherman took a victory lap for the Packers' recent struggles.
"I told Green Bay. I told their fans. You're not getting three in a row. I feel you; you want to love Jordan Love. But maybe, just maybe, you should've shut up and enjoyed the guy you had," said Sherman.
"Careful what you wish for, because now you've got what you wish for. Your team is 2-5 and could easily be 1-6. You're on your way to picking top five in the draft. You are probably considering drafting another quarterback."
Where do we start?
Sherman is effectively blaming Jordan Love for the Packers' performances. Does he forget that Aaron Rodgers struggled in this offense a year ago?
The Packers traded Davante Adams and gave Rodgers an inexperienced receiving corps to work with. Rodgers had one of his worst seasons in Green Bay, throwing for 3,695 yards, 26 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions.
Rodgers struggled to get on the same page as the young receivers, who were regularly at fault for running wrong routes, not making the right adjustments, and dropping passes.
If Rodgers, coming off back-to-back MVP seasons, struggled in this offense, how can we expect Jordan Love to do any better with an even less experienced supporting cast?
All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari played 11 games last season. Love had him for one game (and he looked great). Rodgers didn't have Rasheed Walker protecting his blindside.
Last season, Rodgers had veterans he trusted, like Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb, and Robert Tonyan. Love is throwing exclusively to rookies and second-year players. Add in Aaron Jones' injury and the offensive line's regression, and Love has had no support.
Can he play better? Absolutely. Is Love the Packers' long-term answer at QB? That remains up in the air. But it seems odd that Sherman is busy taking victory laps on his preseason predictions. It's hard to watch Sunday's loss to the Minnesota Vikings and put the blame on Love. The offense around him is an absolute mess.
Most quarterbacks would struggle in Green Bay's offense, including Aaron Rodgers.
