Jordan Love’s performance draws comparisons to Brett Favre after game-ending interception

Saturday night was a rough start to Jordan Love’s postseason career. And after an awful final sequence, he’s going to be compared a lot more to the wrong Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame quarterback.

After a late San Francisco comeback, an uneven Love (who had already thrown a pick earlier) was tasked with rescuing the Packers’ season. With just under a minute left, he responded by running right and throwing across his body deep back to the middle of the field, where a swarm of 49ers defenders was waiting to make a play on the ball.

Dre Greenlaw did, intercepting Love (again) on a horrific decision that may haunt him and the Packers for their entire offseason:

What was notable about this Love interception was how similar it was to when an erratic Brett Favre — the NFL’s all-time leader in thrown interceptions — threw a season-ending pick to the New Orleans Saints during the 2009 NFC title game. In fact, it almost literally looks like the same play in mostly the same situation:

It’s still way too early to make any definitive conclusion about Love and his career prospects in Green Bay. Sometimes, when he makes sparkling off-platform throws in the pocket, he resembles Aaron Rodgers. And sometimes, when he trusts his playmaking a little too much and goes for it all at the worst possible time, he looks just like Favre. Though, to be fair to Love, Rodgers never beat the 49ers in the playoffs, either. So maybe he is still more similar to his predecessor. For now.

But for the most part, Saturday night was an excellent example of Love living up to a Favre-like reputation, especially on the Packers’ season-ending play.
