Packers: 3 reasons to believe in Jordan Love in 2023
Uncertainty. That's what faces the Green Bay Packers as they enter the new season.
After years of MVP quarterback player under Aaron Rodgers, Jordan Love is set to become the Packers' new starter in 2023. Love was a first-round pick three years ago but only has one career start.
Could Love become the third straight Hall-of-Fame quarterback in Green Bay?
Nobody knows, but he doesn't need to be Aaron Rodgers to be successful. Packers fans should have confidence in their new quarterback, and here are three reasons why.
3. Jordan Love impressed in limited game action in 2022
Jordan Love showed significant improvements to his game last season, most notably in his performance against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Coming off the bench to replace an injured Aaron Rodgers, Love attempted to help the Packers overturn a 14-point deficit. And he played well.
Love immediately made a difference. He threw completions of five and seven yards before connecting with Christian Watson for a 63-yard touchdown.
He kicked off the next drive with another completion, this time a 15-yarder to Watson. His next pass was incomplete, but it was a beauty. Love hit Aaron Jones on a perfect back-shoulder pass, but Jones couldn't make the catch. Love did get a first down on a 17-yard pass to Allen Lazard.
With time running out and a touchdown needed, Love fired towards the end zone, barely missing out on another touchdown.
Love threw on time, in rhythm, and with great accuracy. It was an impressive performance from Love and wasn't dissimilar from Aaron Rodgers against the Dallas Cowboys in 2007.
