Packers coach Matt LaFleur is hoping quarterback Aaron Rodgers returns to Green Bay, but as long as Rodgers is staying away, LaFleur is liking what he’s seeing of quarterback Jordan Love.

LaFleur said today that it’s obvious from watching Love at Organized Team Activities that he’s been working hard at getting better. The Packers traded up in the first round to draft Love last year, but Love never saw the field while Rodgers was winning the league MVP award. This year, if Rodgers doesn’t play, Love would presumably be the Packers’ starter.

The ball is “jumping out” of Love’s hand when he throws in practice this week, LaFleur said.

The Packers are in a difficult spot with Rodgers unhappy and wanting out, but Love giving LaFleur confidence that he can handle the starting job if necessary would put the Packers in a much better place.

  1. Most heir-apparent young quarterbacks are brought to bottom-tier teams with the intent and hope of being a savior. But, due to the fact the bottom-tier team is there for a reason they oftentimes fail with very, very few exceptions. That is not the case with the Packers. Whoever is starting on Opening Day is going to have a very solid team and a lot of tools to work with. I predict Rodgers will soon realize his last/next best chance at a SuperBowl is to stay where he is. If not, so be it. The next guy will take over that next/best chance for free.

  2. No surprise the ball is “jumping out” of his hand. Not a secret that J-Love has a cannon.

    GoPackGo!

  3. it’s obvious from watching Love at Organized Team Activities that he’s been working hard at getting better…does not mean he likes what he sees.
    Plus at this point with Rodgers pooing all over the Packers would LaFleur really admit if love is still as bad as reported last year?

  4. Cheese is fattening, how many Super Bowls have your Vikings won so far?

  5. I feel sorry for Love. GB fans are not rational. He had big shoes to fill before the front office fiasco, now they are even bigger.

    No team in NFL history has had 3 HOF QB’s in a row. It isn’t going to happen here either. The poor kid is in a lose/lose situation. If he is only so so the lunatic fans will be screaming.

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    ….except LaFleur said he likes what he sees and nobody said he was bad last year. They couldn’t, because he didn’t take any snaps. Except for that.

    Can you find an example of Rodgers trashing the Packers? I haven’t heard or read anything to that effect. Thanks buddy,

  9. So did the Packers draft Love in the 1st round with the intent of sitting him for 7 years till Rodgers retires? They knew Rodgers was leaving and Love was a panic pick. It’s just an act now till the trade is finalized.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    What I learned a long time ago: Those who say do not know. Those who know do not say.

    So many genius experts here! What would the NFL do without them!!??

  11. The Packers are getting exactly what they deserve. They’ve refused to give Aaron Rogers the tools he needs to succeed, then they totally disrespect him by drafting a QB who is a media creation. Jordan Love was never a 1st Rd prospect until Daniel Jeremiah made him into one with his inane ‘scouting’ and non-stop, pre-Draft media barrage.

    Prediction: Rogers will go on to win for another team that will surround him with talent. Love will be a quick flame out and LaFleur will be fired within 3 seasons.

  12. So many packers fans heads in the sand.

    Denial is not just a river in Egypt.
