Jordan Love “super excited” for first game action since 2020 Senior Bowl

A lot of things have happened in and around the Packers organization since the team decided to draft quarterback Jordan Love in the first round of the 2020 draft, but Love taking snaps in a game are not on the list.

The preseason was wiped out by the COVID-19 pandemic last year and Love never saw any action in the regular season, which means that he has not seen game action since he was in Mobile, Alabama for the Senior Bowl after leaving Utah State. That is set to change against the Texans next week and Love is fired up about getting back into the swing of things.

“I’m super excited for it,” Love said, via Matt Schneidman of TheAthletic.com. “The last time I played a game was the Senior Bowl coming out of college. Over a year and a half ago, I think. I’m super excited. This is the moment I’ve been preparing for even since last year. It’s almost like I’ve been training a year just for this first preseason game. I’m super excited to get out there and get back to playing ball.”

Love’s last game with ramifications on his team’s record came in December 2019 against Bowling Green. It’s not clear when the next one will come, but that shouldn’t make it any less enjoyable to knock the rust off a week from Saturday.

  1. Jordan appears to be super-excited. Packers fans everywhere are thinking, show us, don’t tell us.

    Wishing the kid well! It’s a first step with many to follow.

  2. Wasted draft pick. Rodgers was right to be angry. By the time this talented kid gets any action he will be a free agent.

  3. Us Packer fans are pretty excited too Jordan. This kid has already shown tremendous poise and patience under such a spotlight over the past year. This pressure will only benefit the kid as he grows into a starter in the NFL. Go Pack Go!!!

    If the kid is talented then it can’t be a wasted pick. Getting a starting caliber QB is never a waste. If he is no good then its a wasted pick.

  5. He shows much promise but he needs one more year watching and learning……just like Rodgers did.

  6. Great presser from J-Lo(As Aaron calls him) today. The more I see him at practice, and the more I hear him speak, I am even more confident in the successful NFL career this quality individual is going to have.

    I’ve seen J-Love throw and in 11 on 11 drills for 2 training camps now. But most here in Wisconsin will see J-Love live for the first time at Family Night in Lambeau on Saturday.

    Nice to have J-Lo on the squad. The present and future looks bright in TitleTown.

  7. I’d imagine that DBs will be excited to see the guy who led the country in INTs in his last season of college ball in a subpar conference.
