The Chicago Bears didn’t fare well against new Green Bay Packers starting quarterback Jordan Love on Sunday, but safety Jaquan Brisker didn’t seem all that impressed.
It was Love’s first official start in the post-Aaron Rodgers era for the Packers, and he performed quite admirably to help get Green Bay a key division victory early in the season.
While talking with reporters after the team’s 38-20 home loss to the Packers, Brisker dismissed Love’s 245-yard, 3-touchdown performance as nothing that anyone should be too concerned about in the future.
“He’s just Jordan Love,” Brisker told reporters when asked about Love’s performance on Sunday, per NBC Sports Chicago. “Number 10. Packers quarterback. He’s nothing special.”
That’s a brutal comment from a guy whose team you just beat if you’re love, but it’s ultimately meaningless until the Bears actually defeat him on the field. It’s something Brisker promises will come later this fall.
“We’re going to stay the course,” Brisker said of what’s next for Chicago and Green Bay. “We’re going to focus on Tampa [for next week]. We see [the Packers] again. They’ll get theirs.”
Well, if Love winds up having the kind of career the other recent Packers quarterbacks have had, Brisker might feel a little silly for saying this and perhaps a bit responsible for adding bulletin board material for the Green Bay locker room.
NFL fans felt that Brisker was being far too cavalier with his comments.
NFL fans (especially Packers fans) weren't having it.
the year is 2067 and the bears have just lost their 119th consecutive game to the packers. starting safety roberto higginsworth IV is furious, vowing to get revenge: “yeah they got us this time. but that’s okay, we meet again this year. they’ll get theirs” https://t.co/5ETUB8jTQj

It's dumb to do this because it's just a huge self-own.

If your team lost to a QB who isn’t special then that’s says a lot about your own team. https://t.co/YBRMJke49i

Everyone at Halas Hall needs to not say anything. You lost badly to the Packers and Jordan Love.
Until you beat them convincingly, no room to talk. https://t.co/nZkNfqFvsA

Gotta respect the complete lack of self awareness to an extent. If I lost 9 straight to my biggest rival I’d never open my mouth again https://t.co/4c5EnaF0rm
