Packers OC confident in QB Jordan Love’s growth in altered offense following Aaron Rodgers final year struggles

Following legendary quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ departure from the Green Bay Packers, Offensive Coordinator Adam Stenavich expressed unwavering confidence in the caliber of young quarterback Jordan Love to step up and lead the team’s offense.

Jordan spent the first three seasons of his professional career as a backup for the Packers long-time quarterback and now Rodgers’ trade to the New York Jets has paved the way for the young signal-caller to prove himself as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.

Packers OC says the entire playbook is on the table for Jordan Love

Following the Packers’ huge change from future Hall of Famer Rodgers to 2020 first-rounder Love, Green Bay may not look like before, and offensive coordinator Adam Stenavich shed light on the fact on Tuesday.

“It might yeah, it might. I think it might. And it’s not just because of not having Aaron Rodgers. It might just be these other pieces that we’ve added as well. So, again, it’s OTAs right now so we’re just going to kind of see how it all fits and once we figure out kind of how we’re going to attack defenses, then we’ll roll from there. But I think it might”, he said.

Aaron inked two NFL MVP awards during four seasons of tenure with the Packers, albeit the 39-year-old struggled in his final season in Green Bay, throwing the second-most interceptions of his career. Love also may not perform according to the expectation in his first year as the QB1, however, the team remains confident in his ability and Stenavich said the whole Packers playbook will be opened up for the promising player.

“Obviously he doesn’t have the playing experience that Aaron had, but from a playbook standpoint, I think pretty much all of it’s on the table. He’s been around for three years and has really attacked it. Even last year, you could see him come into his own, felt a lot more comfortable, so this year he’s really hitting it on all cylinders so I’m really excited to see what he’s going to bring”, the OC said.

The absence of the 10-time Pro Bowler in Green Bay will be huge, however, Adam is excited to kick off the new era keeping Love at the helm and he also ensured their new starting passer is up to the task.

“We’re starting on Step 1 instead of starting at Step 8, where you can start with Aaron Rodgers. So, you’re going to take a step back and you’re just going to keep working ahead. Can’t really look at the end result right now. We’re just going to look at one day at a time and just go from there, but he’s ready, he’s excited. I think all the guys, you can feel good vibes, good energy around the locker room, so it’s going to be fun”, he added.

Aaron skipped the offseason program in the past two years, giving Love the chance to prove his ability to replace the team’s QB1 and he became successful ultimately. The first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft completed 14 of 21 pass attempts in the 2022 season for 195 yards, one touchdown, and no interceptions.

As the Packers embark on a new era without their long-time QB1, the franchise remains confident in their new signal-caller’s potential to step up and deliver results. While acknowledging the challenges ahead, Stenavich and the coaching staff are committed to supporting his growth and guiding the team toward continued success.

Time will tell how the 24-year-old adapts to the starting quarterback role, albeit the Packers’ belief in his abilities remains resolute. Fans’ eyes will be on Love as he steps into the spotlight and aims to build his own legacy in Green Bay.
