Holding the distinction of being the third-oldest franchise in the NFL, with a rich history dating back to 1919, the Packers have emerged as a symbol of excellence. Notably, they are the sole major league professional sports club in the United States, owned by the local community rather than for business purposes. It is undeniable that the franchise owes much of its identity to its devoted fan base. Originally, the Packers joined the American Football League in 1921 as an amateur club.

Seahawks QB Geno Smith and Packers QB Jordan Love
Despite a standout 2022 season and securing a significant payday through a new three-year contract, Geno Smith of the Seattle Seahawks remains committed to maintaining his approach heading into the upcoming season. Smith, now entering his fifth season with the Seahawks, has solidified his position as the starting quarterback after earning recognition as the Comeback Player of the Year and his first Pro Bowl selection. This is in stark contrast to last year when he competed with former Broncos starter Drew Lock to take over from franchise icon Russell Wilson.
After losing their star quarterback Aaron Rodgers to the NY Jets, the Green Bay Packers confront a fresh challenge in the NFL landscape. The team will now rely on rookie quarterback Jordan Love to take on the mantle of the primary quarterback. Supported by cornerback Jaire Alexander, Love steps into this pivotal role. Alexander’s proficiency in man coverage and his capability to neutralize some of the league’s premier receivers have positioned him as an elite shutdown cornerback. Through a combination of toughness, speed, and exceptional ball skills, Alexander has firmly established himself as a cornerstone of the Packers’ secondary.
