The Green Bay Packers made the decision to move on from four-time MVP Aaron Rodgers in favor of 2020 first round NFL Draft pick Jordan Love this offseason. The team would not have made this decision if they did not have complete faith in Love’s ability to lead their team.
However, there are and will be questions regarding whether or not it was the right decision until the regular season begins and Love proves them right. One Packers insider, Rob Demovsky of ESPN, gave an update on Love’s performance in training camp on Thursday, and it was not what Packers fans wanted to hear.
It Could Be a Long Year for the Green Bay Packers Under Jordan Love
Appearing on ESPN’s “Get Up,” Demovsky was asked to share what he has seen from Love so far during training camp. He responded:
“We’ve seen Jordan Love have one really good day, maybe the best day in the four years that he’s been here. He’s had one sort of decent day. And the rest? Well, you walk off the practice field thinking this might be a really, really long year.
“Now, that day that he was great, he went 16 of 22 and a bunch of those incompletions were actually throwaways or spikes. The next day that was sort of decent, he had a 67-yard touchdown pass to Christian Watson on a deep ball down the sideline.
“The other days make you think, ‘Boy, this could be a long year.’
Demovsky referenced Love’s own comments about being frustrated with the offense’s performance during camp as well.
He did state that the Packers have really committed to Love for two years by extending his contract. Demovsky does not think that this is a make-or-break year for Love, LaFleur, or Gutekunst. “No one is getting fired,” he said.
However, he did say that the Packers need to see progression from Love as the starting quarterback. The Packers were 6-10 in Aaron Rodgers’ first year as a starter, so wins and losses will not be the indicator of their stance on Love as the future of their franchise. It will be on what kind of football he plays.
