After two seasons in the shadow of Aaron Rodgers, Jordan Love is finally the number one quarterback on the Green Bay Packers. The fourth QB taken in the 2020 draft, Love has a big arm and has learned from one of the greats of the position.
Despite all the hype and all the expectations of Packers fans it’s hard to ignore that Jordan Love has only thrown 83 passes in the NFL so far in his short career. Only 21 of those came in the 2022 season and while learning from Rodgers has been the theory, how much Love has picked up from the often surly Rodgers will be interesting to see.
JORDAN LOVE’S HAD A SOLID PRESEASON
While preseason is a notoriously shaky way to judge an NFL QB the key for Love has been the way he has progressed over the three seasons.
With Love’s better decision making we see a very clear improvement in TWP% and his overall PFF Grade. While his BTT% has also dropped, knowing the times when to make the big throws and when to take what’s available seems to be coming to him as the seasons progress.
Clearly head coach Matt LaFleur has been impressed with Jordan Love in the preseason. “I thought it was solid,” LaFleur said. “Obviously, he would love to have the one throw back to Luke Musgrave over the middle in that third down, but I thought all in all, he went out there and executed the plays, and he didn’t force anything. I thought he made great decisions and played the position really well.”
