Groundhog Day? So, what yr will the Packers be buying and selling future Corridor of Fame quarterback Jordan Like to the Jets?

I am certain Packers followers can be thrilled with such situation unfolding. Quarterbacks are foreign money on this sport. On the finish of the day, it is a predicament each NFL would like to be in.

Shedding superstars who’ve been a part of your soccer household is hard. I am unhappy in regards to the departures of Davante Adams and Aaron Rodgers. They delivered moments that introduced smiles to the faces of thousands and thousands of followers, and for that I am grateful. In realizing that the tenure of each participant will inevitably come to an finish, I am additionally grateful that their departures have resulted in draft capital (clearly the Rodgers deal is not finalized but) that can assist ease the transition to some extent.

Within the NFL, that wheel by no means stops turning. As we talked about earlier this week, Joe Montana was traded, Peyton Manning was reduce, and Tom Brady left New England as a free agent. Brett Favre was traded for a third-round decide. Dave Robinson was traded for a second-round decide. Herb Adderley was traded to Dallas for Malcolm Walker and Clarence Williams.

Now that we now have path at QB1, do you may have a way how the gamers are feeling (pondering of what Aaron Jones stated a short while again, lobbying for AR to return)? I, personally, am extraordinarily excited for the period of Jordan Love.

Properly, Jones was equally complementary of Love, too. De’Vondre Campbell additionally had form phrases for the younger QB’s readiness throughout his look on the Appleton Submit-Crescent’s Clubhouse Stay final yr. I could not let you know how gamers really feel proper now apart from Love has earned the respect of the locker room during the last there years. I really feel assured in saying that.

I submit my nominee for most dear Packer for the upcoming season: Tom Clements. Rodgers was a piece in progress out of school and credit Clements for creating him into the quarterback he grew to become. I do not assume it is a coincidence Jordan Love confirmed dramatic enchancment this previous yr underneath Clements’ management. I hope he’s well-compensated.

He is top-of-the-line on this enterprise. Clements is extraordinarily clever particular person who has a Midas contact for educating footwork and fundamentals – two areas I felt Love confirmed vital progress final season. Clements possesses in depth expertise mentoring younger QBs (Rodgers, Matt Flynn and Kyler Murray). He additionally helped get essentially the most out of Tommy Maddox in Pittsburgh and Kelly Holcomb in Buffalo. Clements was constructed for this project.

As inevitable because it has felt for a while now, there’s a part of me that also cannot consider I will by no means see Aaron Rodgers don the inexperienced and gold once more. Now we collectively flip the web page to the Jordan Love period. He has dealt with his apprenticeship underneath “12” with true professionalism. I look ahead to his subsequent interview. I’m keen to listen to his viewpoint on all that is occurred and his tackle the way forward for the franchise. He is waited a very long time for this second, exit and seize it!

Once more, this can be a course of and there is nonetheless work to be carried out. However Jordan Love has stated all the best issues and carried out every part the Packers have requested. Love additionally has been a respectful apprentice underneath Rodgers and by no means raised a fuss. There could be quite a lot of unknowns about Jordan Love as a QB, however I feel we have realized the kind of man he’s.

If (when) Love and the Packers proceed down the profitable path with profitable seasons, do you assume a multiyear QB improvement/transition course of can be emulated by different groups? In my view, there’s a profit to study the NFL QB place and sluggish the sport down earlier than taking management of the reins. However with the potential brief lives of NFL coaches and GMs, perhaps this isn’t attainable in different NFL markets.

I do not know if QBs want to attend three full seasons, however far too many groups throw rookies on the market when A) they don’t seem to be prepared and B) their offensive assist just isn’t secure. Groups may get by with a type of issues being true, however not each. On this explicit case, I do not assume a younger QB might ask for a greater offense to step into. The Packers have two Professional Bowl-caliber offensive linemen defending Love’s blindside, pace on the perimeter and a pair of veterans tying the backfield collectively.

Not a query, only a thought. Now that it seems AR won’t be taking part in for the Packers, I consider it is time for Packer Nation to rally behind JL and assist this younger man get his period off to an incredible begin. Wanting ahead to what the longer term brings for JL and the Packer group as an entire. Can the wage cap hit for AR be mitigated in any method? Thanks for all the good work you do to maintain Packer Nation updated.

One factor that helps Inexperienced Bay is Love continues to be on his rookie contract. That offers the Packers extra respiratory room than a yr from now, when Love would both be taking part in on a assured fifth-year possibility exercised or getting into unrestricted free company.
