The Green Bay Packers are in a pickle as week 13 begins in the NFL.
During their Sunday night game against the Philadelphia Eagles, quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered an injury.
While the MVP quarterback is already dealing with a broken thumb, he now has a rib injury.
This led to Jordan Love finishing that game, with him passing for 113 yards and one touchdown.
However, should the Packers stick with Love, or keep their injured MVP quarterback in as the starter?
The Packers Have No Reason To Hold Love Back From Starting
With the Packers setting at 4-8, they have no reason to hold back Love from finishing the season.
While the Packers could finish 9-8, their chances of making the playoffs with that record is impossible.
Teams like the New York Giants and Washington Commanders, who both beat the Packers this season, only need two wins to lock out the Packers.
With those teams being the lowest seeded playoff teams, it makes no sense to keep Rodgers in as the starting quarterback.
So giving the team over to Love makes sense, as they can also see how he plays with five games remaining on their schedule.
"If you flew in and didn't know a thing, and just watched [Aaron Rodgers and Jordan Love], a healthier Jordan Love right now gives you a better chance to win."

Having him also lets Rodgers rest, which he needs with all his injuries going on.
However, his ego can easily derail any playing time for Love.

If Rodgers says he can start, coach Matt LaFleur will start him.
While it’s the worst thing to do, they will go along with his wishes.
With the season already over, the Packers should start Love.
However, Rodgers will continue to have the last word on this issue.
