3 takeaways from Packers’ second joint practice with Saints
Jordan Love impresses
Jordan Love has been frustratingly inconsistent, not just this summer, but throughout his Packers career.
Well, not today. According to various reporters, Love had an excellent practice on Wednesday up against the Saints’ defense.
“Jordan Love put the offense on his shoulders and had arguably the best practice of his young career,” wrote Andy Herman of Packer Report.
Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette called a 50-yard touchdown pass to Samori Toure the play of the day.
Here’s some more detail of the drive from Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, which he describes as “one of the best series of his career”.
Love has shown his talent throughout training camp. He has shown he can make some incredible passes. At times, his decision-making and ability under pressure have been at a high level.
But we’ve seen far too many mistakes and inaccurate passes on what should be easy throws at the NFL level.
Hopefully, this can be the turning point for Love. If he can find more consistency, the Packers could have their future QB1 after Aaron Rodgers retires.
It’s just one practice, but it’s an encouraging sign. Love now needs to back it up with more good play during the preseason.
