Friday Cheese Curds: Davante Adams Returns

The best receiver in the league has come off the COVID list. Having Adams back in the lineup will be a huge boost for Jordan Love.

Happy Friday, Packers fans.

It has been a WEEK hasn’t it? We’re all Rodgers’d out after news broke Wednesday the three-time MVP would be sidelined this week after testing positive for COVID-19.

Then we all had to debate “vaccinated” versus “immunized” and watched occasionally mindless debate fill our social media feeds. Not even a week after what should have been a season defining victory over the Arizona Cardinals, the entire narrative of the 2021 season has changed.

So rather than go through and recap all that stuff, how about a Rodgers-free zone and focus on some good news in Packer Nation in this edition of cheese curds?

Having Davante Adams back would be huge for Jordan Love in his first career start. Assessing the young quarterback during the preseason was tough because he wasn’t playing with the starters. Having Adams on the field would be a great security blanket.

As someone who has defended and continues to defend Love’s selection by the Packers, Sunday’s outcome could actually dictate the path the franchise will take in 2022 and beyond. The team will do whatever it takes for Love to succeed as QB1.

A Packers defender winning a monthly award? Hell really is freezing over. All jokes aside, this is a well deserved accolade for general manager Brian Gutekunst’s best signing of the offseason.
