Packers HC Matt LaFleur highlights QB Jordan Love’s progress emphasizing room for improvement: “A lot of good things and a lot to clean up”

Aaron Rodgers, 18-year veteran player for the Green Bay Packers, was replaced by Jordan Love, a player with three years’ worth of experience, even though the team is aware that Love still has a long way to go before living up to the team’s expectations.

Love and the Packers had previously reached an agreement on a one-year contract extension worth up to $22.5 million, including $13.5 million fully guaranteed, yet the Packers weren’t on board with the fifth-year option on his rookie deal.

What did the Packers’ HC tell about Jordan Love?

Since Rodgers is no longer on the Packers’ roster, Matt LaFleur’s team is making a significant effort to embellish the ex-Aaron team. The players are currently participating in OTA, and the coaches are closely monitoring their shortcomings. LaFleur recently shared his thoughts on love with Packers reporter Rob Demovsky of ESPN NFL Nation.

The quarterback still needs to practice a lot and develop himself to meet the team’s expectations even though he has many good athletic prerequisites to be in charge of the team, according to the head coach.

“A lot of good things and a lot to clean up,” the head coach said about their expected starting quarterback. “We’ve got to see what everybody else around him can do, too.”

Is Love starting for the Packers?

A-rod spent 15 years as the Packers’ starting quarterback and finished his time with the team with a 147-75-1 record as a starter. However, the team had made every effort to get rid of Aaron before trading their veteran quarterback to the Jets for Love, despite the fact that the 24-year-old had made just one career start and had spent the previous three seasons sitting behind Rodgers.

Jordan gained notoriety and the confidence of the teams after he stood in for Rodgers against the NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles on the road last season and directed two second-half touchdown drives in the eventual 40-33 loss.

He was a three-year starter at Utah State before joining the Packers. During that time, he completed 60.2% of his passes, threw 29 interceptions, and scored 60 touchdowns. His era in Green Bay officially began as the 39-year-old cleared the way for him to take over as the team’s new starting quarterback.

For all these years, JL had to sit behind Aaron; now that Rodgers has been supplanted by Jordan, it will be even more difficult for him to establish his value.
