The Green Bay Packers and Jordan Love have had a roller coaster of a season. There have been the highest of highs with dramatic comebacks and the lowest of lows with the beating they took in week 4 against the Lions. After the week 4 loss, head coach Matt LaFleur challenged every player to pick one thing to work on. Love has a very simple thing that he is going to improve.
Green Bay Packers Jordan Love On What He Needs To Improve
Love wants to improve his completion percentage. Currently, he is sitting at 56.1% which puts him near the bottom of the league. “My thing is just completions,” Love said Thursday. “Going out there and getting positive plays and just finding completions on every play.” Accuracy was the big question mark for Love when he was taken out of Utah State. Those concerns are still there. While Love has the ability to make huge plays with his arm, his inaccuracy often limits big plays.
Part Of The Development
LaFleur doesn’t seem too concerned about the inaccuracy issues. He has seen improvement in the three years Love has been with the organization. “I think he’s come a long way in every [facet] in terms of the fundamentals of playing the position,” LaFleur said. “I think that always leads to better accuracy.” Part of the inaccuracy is that Love isn’t playing conservatively. He is pushing the ball down the field and trying to make big plays. If he can inch that completion percentage up a little, he could become a lethal quarterback.
The good news for the Green Bay Packers and Jordan Love is that they get a little reprieve in the schedule. They already are on a mini-bye going into Monday night’s contest against the Raiders. Then after their bye, they face the Broncos, Vikings, and Rams. These defenses are much less scary and will give Love and the offense an opportunity to show how they have improved.
