Even though the final result of Week 2's matchup in Atlanta did not go their way, the Green Bay Packers are still in a good spot at the most important position in all of sports. Following his first two games, Jordan Love looks the part of the next Packers quarterback to have an extended stay in Green Bay.
Love currently leads all quarterbacks in touchdown passes (6), touchdown percentage (11.5%), adjusted air yard per attempt (9.9), and rating (118.7). Granted, this is an incredibly small sample size of just two games, but the fact he was able to come out and be a productive thrower of the football during his first real time as Green Bay's starter is not insignificant.
There are plenty of instances that see other quarterbacks in situations like this that struggle out of the gate, subsequently facing an uphill battle the rest of the season.
Packers are in good hands with Jordan Love, who has room to grow
If there is one area that Love needs to improve, it is accuracy. Love has completed just 55.8% of his passes in the first two games of the season. This is not a case of his accuracy being torpedoed by one bad outing, as his 15-27 and 14-25 lines in Weeks 1 and 2 produce nearly identical completion percentage numbers of 55.6% and 56% respectively.
Love should improve as the season progresses due to being more comfortable as Green Bay's starting signal caller and the eventual return of Christian Watson to the Packers' lineup. Adding Watson's talent and experience back into the equation will only improve the overall production for a very young group of receivers and make Love's job easier when it comes to targeting them in the passing game.
There are going to be bumps in the road this year as Love continues to grow as a quarterback, this is simply an indisputable fact. But so far it appears that Love is more than capable of commanding the offense of Matt LaFleur and making the Packers a much more competitive team than what many expected them to be.
