Jordan Love Film Breakdown

Love is a true boom or bust prospect, with great moments that scream first round talent, but he struggles with consistency.

Really good breakdown of new Packers QB Jordan Love's game here from Alex Rollins.

The reality is one pick won’t break this team. 1 pick like Rodgers( hopefully Love) can make this team for a decade. I’m ok with an occasional swing for the fence. It’s certainly paid off in the past for us. The over reaction about the use of one frickin pick is hilarious. When we “wasted a pick”on Rodgers as someone pointed out in an earlier comment, we still went to the nfc championship and lost in ot not long after. It had nothing to do with wasting a 1st on Rodgers. Just favre being favre

Sculls you are right on....whoever might be that late first and fourth round pick wasn’t probably going to take us to the promise land in the next two years. BUT, if this move, which isn’t unlike what KC did in 2017, works out and we have our QB for the next 15 years we hit the pot of gold. I’ll take that risk.

Who can say whether or not those now hypothetical picks would have helped us out tremendously?

And this move is not comparable to KC at all. Alex Smith had his limitations--like throwing the ball downfield. The Chiefs lost 4 out of 5 playoff games with him at the helm. Rodgers and Smith aren't even comparable.

"If we have our QB for the next 15 years...?" That's only if he is as good and or as durable as Favre and Rodgers. Such incredible optimism....

Too many of Gute's/Thompson's high-round picks are/were "swings for the fences"--and they often end up striking out, or at least making only a minimal impact in their first year. And as someone else pointed out, Love cost us two picks, which I really don't think we can afford.

It wasn't just one pick though. It was 2. While not a fan of the pick, the worst part is moving up to make it and costing another pick to do so.

A 4th round pick isn't guaranteed to make the team, so it isn't much of a wasted pick.

Yeah, right--what planet are you from? Ever heard of David Bakhtiari, Josh Sitton, TJ Lang, or Mike Daniels?

Awesome video. I think we can derive an idea of Gute's plan. I'm not sure I would have done what Gute is doing but at least there is some method here.

If it pays off we'll have another decade plus of pro-bowl Quarterbacking

Great video analysis! I get the excitement at 1265. But......
The fact is we're 2 or 3 players away from being in the SB. This guy MIGHT be the next Favre/Rodgers, but he could more likely not be (remember Hundley?). There was plenty of talent available at need positions at 26 (and at 30!). I hope Love develops into our next franchise QB, but he's not going to help us beat the 49ers or anyone else in the next year or two. We have too many pieces peaking in that window to not give the team the additional help they need. Sure, they'll argue we have 8 more picks, but a special player who can impact immediately is a very precious commodity.

Gutekunst said that looking at your team ever being 1, 2, 3, etc players away from being great can be dangerous. Gutey wants to make the very best team he can, and especially for as long as possible. I'd rather spend another decade or more being happy to have a really great QB on the team than having to rush out in the top 3 picks and hoping we secured a QB.

Looked at Love's numbers through 3 years in college. Roughly a 61% pass completion rate and for every 2 TDs he throws 1 INT. People say that he doesn't have the supporting cast like the guys from Bama or LSU but then he doesn't play anywhere near the level of competition either. I am sorry but what a player has done in their career up to this point is the best indicator of what they will do. The Packers keep ignoring the track record, thinking they can take any athlete to the next level. We drafted a backup who we hope might find another gear.

Razer not many would consider what a person does as a freshman. In addition, his senior year he ended up with a new head coach, O coordinator and a lot of key players graduating. His Junior year was 65% completion, 32 TD’s and 6 INT...I would say that is great numbers. Give this time, you might be surprised by the outcome.

What's done is done. Time will tell if this kid has the smarts to make the leap. If nothing else we may end up with a decent backup, if/when Rodgers goes down.

The reality is Bill Belichick passed and he didn't like him. So who needed a QB more? The Packers got a D on their draft from CBS. Lowest of all 32 teams. Theres is no doubt, Love will be starting in two years regardless. All for Guteys Glory.

Look at Belichick a record with first round draft picks. Not all that impressive so that tells me nothing. 23 teams passed on Aaron Rodgers as well

I hope it lights a fire under Rodgers butt. I am so tired of GB going to NFC championship games and looking like a deflated ballon. 2016 Atlanta same old crap. 2020 San Fran almost disinterested to be there. If a fire getting lit is all this pick accomplished, I would be okay with it.

I thought the idea was to win now. Gluteus Maximus needs to go. Offensive weapon to win now. Superbowl or bust? Bad disparaging pick.

Just because the draft didn't fall the way many so called experts thought it should. I trust our GM and his decisions. AR is a professional and has been paid untold millions to play the next four years and I expect nothing but his best. Who knows how the team will mature in the offseason. We could get a great second year jump form some of the guys they are trying to develop. We are just an injury away from having a great starting QB to question mark. It might be nice to have someone trained and qualified and developed to carry the torch. We had one a coupe of years ago and we would have made the playoffs if we didn't try to get cute. Sean Payton is still laughing about how the Packers tried to slip a young QB Taysom Hill through waivers.
