2. Tim Boyle continues to impress

With each practice, it’s looking more and more likely that Tim Boyle will remain the backup quarterback this season with first-round pick Jordan Love beginning his NFL career as the number three. And that’s probably the ideal situation for the Packers and Love.

And it sure sounds like Boyle had another strong practice. Throughout the session, many tweets were posted like this one.

One of those plays was a pass down the seam to rookie running back AJ Dillon, perhaps a sign Dillon will be a factor in the passing game this year.

Speaking to the media in a Zoom call following Monday’s practice, Boyle spoke about how gaining more familiarity in the offense has helped him.

“I feel comfortable. The terminology is coming to me,” Boyle said. “I’m definitely seeing the defense a lot smoother. Year two in a system, year three overall.”

“I definitely feel comfortable, confident, and in control.”

That experience in Matt LaFleur’s offense gives Boyle an immediate advantage over Love this early on in the summer, and it doesn’t seem like, at this point, there is much debate over who will be the number two quarterback when the regular season gets underway.

Boyle continues to impress and looks set to be the backup this season.
