3. Jordan Love is throwing the highest rate of uncatchable passes in the NFL

Going along with the completion percentage conversation, we can also come to the conclusion that this particular number is, in fact, on the shoulders of Love. Although we have seen some Packers receivers drop a couple of passes that would have resulted in key plays, many of Love's incompletions have been squarely on him.

Take a look at this number, for example. Pro Football Focus' Sam Monson recently pointed out that Love is throwing the most uncatchable passes in all of football. His 31.5 percent "uncatchable" rate is leading the league, and that has to change.

Again, we can blame some drops on the youth of the Packers' offensive skill players. But, by that same token, it is the younger guys who also need some help in their own development from their starting quarterback.

Throwing catchable passes is only going to help further the confidence in guys like Christian Watson (when he returns), Romeo Doubs, Jayden Reed and company.

Love's touchdown-to-interception ratio is fantastic. His overall sack rate is one of the best there is. He has played smart with the football and has not turned it over often. But, the Packers need him to start honing in on his accuracy. Love has to play better. It sounds funny saying that since the Packers are 2-1, but he does need to play better. That's a fact.
