Packers might be grossly overcompensating for Jordan Love

Jaire Alexander says the Packers have the best QB in the NFL

Apparently, the Minnesota Vikings will be facing the best quarterback in the NFL twice next season when they take on Jordan Love of the Green Bay Packers.

Green Bay Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander has made plenty of foolish comments during his time in the NFL. But Alexander's latest declaration about Packers quarterback Jordan Love should give Minnesota Vikings fans a good chuckle.

While Love was answering questions from local reporters during Green Bay's minicamp last week, Alexander interrupted to let everyone know that the team's new starting signal-caller is the "best QB in the league."

Yes, the guy who has attempted less than 100 passes since he was drafted in 2020 is the best quarterback in the NFL.

Possible overcompensations should lower any Minnesota Vikings concerns about Green Bay Packers QB Jordan Love in 2023

Alexander could be serious with his recent statement about Love. But it could also be another instance of a teammate attempting to build up the confidence of a young quarterback.

This happens around the entire NFL all of the time and Windy City Gridiron's Jacob Infante recently uncovered a number of past examples of this that went on to become terribly incorrect.

Love ending up with a career similar to Paxton Lynch, Johnny Manziel, Josh Rosen, or Blake Bortles would be great for the Vikings. But Packers fans are likely in denial about the possibility of this being an actual outcome.

No one will really know how good Love will be until he steps on the field next September for Green Bay's first game of the 2023 regular season against the Chicago Bears.

So it's certainly possible that Alexander could turn out to be right about his new quarterback. However, it's also possible that the cornerback and the rest of his Packers teammates are showering Love with compliments this offseason to overcompensate for any struggles that the young quarterback might have experienced on the field during the last few months.
