Chiefs head coach Andy Reid didn’t remember Jordan Love, giving the Packers quarterback all the motivation he’ll need later this year when the teams meet.

Jordan Love definitely remembers everything about Nov. 7, 2021 when the Packers faced the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. It was the one and only start of his professional career thus far.

As for Chiefs head coach, Andy Reid, the opposing quarterback didn’t make much of an impression. Love has the greatest bulletin-board material ever because of it.

At the NFL’s league meetings on Monday, Reid was asked what he thought of Love when he faced him in 2021. Reid’s answered with crickets.

“Who’s that?” Reid asked. “I’m trying to remember a Jordan Love.”

Sure, Love was just a lowly backup when he stepped in for Aaron Rodgers, who had COVID-19, that Sunday in 2021. But it’s not like Love is a name people in NFL circles have reason to forget.

In fact, Love has been the talk of the Packers for several months as the franchise grappled with Rodgers’ future. He may not be a household name nationally, but he was a first round draft pick and he’s been tapped as Green Bay’s starting quarterback for 2023. Has Reid been living under a rock?

Maybe he has. The head coach just won another Super Bowl. Maybe he was so focused on the Chiefs playoff run that he wasn’t paying any attention to the other major story in the NFL. Still, that’s a pretty big oversight.

Fortunately for all of us, the Packers and Chiefs are slated to play in 2023. Last time out, Love was 19-of-34 with 190 yards, a touchdown and an interception in a 13-7 loss. He will have the opportunity to burn himself in Reid’s memory with a strong enough performance this time.
