Area of concern from Packers OTAs: Jordan Love struggles early
Just as we shouldn't overreact to the positive takeaways, the same goes for the negatives. Starting quarterback Jordan Love made some beautiful throws during practice, but there were also plenty of areas to improve.
According to ESPN's Rob Demovsky: "Late into Tuesday's OTA session, Love had completed just 3 of 12 passes during 11-on-11 periods. He finished 6 of 16 with three touchdowns -- all of them in the final red zone period."
It was far from the perfect start to OTAs for the Packers' new starting quarterback. But he is working with several new receivers, didn't have the full starting offensive line, and it's May. It's early.
While Love has been in the league for three years, he is still an inexperienced quarterback. And the time for experimenting and making mistakes is during the offseason program and training camp. It's here where Love and the offense can try new things and learn from them.
But Love is the new QB1 in Green Bay. He is replacing Aaron Rodgers. His play will be placed under the spotlight all summer and into the regular season.
Love did finish Tuesday's practice strong, which is a positive, but there are plenty of areas to improve moving forward.
