1. 'Up-and-down' start for Jordan Love

All eyes were on Jordan Love as he took the field for his first training camp practice as the Packers' starting quarterback. Unsurprisingly, there were good and bad moments.

Here is what Andy Herman of the Pack-A-Day podcast said about Love's first practice at training camp:

"It was an up-and-down day for Jordan Love, with probably a few more downs than ups if we're being totally honest," said Herman. "I would argue that this wasn't a bad or awful day for Jordan Love. There were no interceptions. There were no awful throws."

Paul Bretl of Packers Wire noted that Love went 7-of-14 in passing while having some issues throwing deep into windy conditions.

Not just Love, but this entire offense is a work in progress. Love has a new-look receiving corps. Experienced receivers like Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb, Marcedes Lewis, and Robert Tonyan are gone. There are going to be mistakes and frustrating moments.

What's great is that Love gets all of the first-team reps. That will help him build chemistry with his young receiving corps.

The encouraging sign is that he held his own. Despite all of the inexperience on offense, Love had a solid practice against a very talented Packers defense.
