NFL fans blasted Bears’ Jaquan Brisker for saying Jordan Love is ‘nothing special’ for Packers

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.
