Is Green Bay Packers quarterback Jordan Love ready for the regular season? He certainly seems to think so after just two preseason games.
"I’m definitely ready for Week 1 and carry on throughout the season. I think these first two games we did a lot of good work, getting the practice in with Cincinnati and the Patriots as well," said Love.
"Playing in that last game would just be getting more reps, getting more comfortable with seeing new looks, going against a different team, so I don’t think it would hurt".
Talk about confidence. Love has only appeared in five offensive series this preseason, completing 12 of 18 attempts for 130 yards and two touchdowns. While it is only preseason, the fact he appears to have full command of the offense and is not struggling with turnovers is encouraging.
Jordan Love has shown promise in Packers preseason
There have been plenty of cases of a team moving on from a future Hall of Fame quarterback only to have his replacement be a complete and absolute mess. This has not been an issue for Love and should bode well for the Packers' offense moving forward.
With Love seemingly picking up where Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre before him left off, Green Bay could be witnessing the beginning of a long, illustrious career of a Packers quarterback.
While some caution should be exercised as he has accomplished exactly nothing in the grand scheme of things these past two weeks, it is about identifying certain aspects of a player that should translate into the regular season. Love has shown that and should be able to man the quarterback position for the Packers for the foreseeable future.
The combination of a confident Love and the quarterback-friendly scheme of Matt LaFleur could be the latest to wreak havoc on the NFC North. It is only preseason, but the lack of major red flags from Love's play should lead to success once the regular season begins.
