Green Bay quarterback Jordan Love’s Father’s Day message backfires


Jordan Love of the Green Bay Packers saw very little action As Aaron Rodgers’ deputy quarterback, he might want to refrain from trolling fans of a division rival for now. (Check out the video below.)

But at first it seemed like Love took a different view on Sunday. He’s the putative starter now that Rodgers is playing for the New York Jets, and he didn’t seem afraid to tease Chicago Bears supporters. Or at least try.

“Happy Father’s Day to all the Bears fans out there. Go pack go,” Love said in a clip on social media.

There was a lot to unpack, as many fans emphasized.

Was Love merely sending sarcastic congratulations to a hostile fandom? Or was he referring to the Packers’ paternal dominance over the Bears under Rodgers (24-5 vs. Chicago), who once shouted to fans at Soldier Field, “I’ve owned you guys my whole damn life!”

And if so, then why did it sound like he was calling Bears fans dads?

As it turned out, it wasn’t any of that.

Love said Monday he was asked to deliver the wishes to a fan as a favor. “I didn’t think about it much lol but I see you guys really took it and kept walking with it,” he said wrote on Twitter. “Nonetheless, I hope everyone had a great Father’s Day.”
