He’s one of the best in this business

Groundhog Day? So, what year will the Packers sell future Hall of Famer quarterback Jordan Love to the Jets?

I’m sure Packers fans would be thrilled with such a scenario. Quarterbacks are the currency of this sport. At the end of the day, it’s a predicament that every NFL would love to find itself in.

Losing superstars who were part of your football family is tough. I’m saddened by the departures of Davante Adams and Aaron Rodgers. They delivered moments that made millions of fans smile and I’m grateful for that. Knowing that every player’s tenure will inevitably come to an end, I’m also grateful that their departures have resulted in draft capital (obviously the Rodgers deal is ongoing) that will ease the transition to some extent .

In the NFL, that wheel never stops turning. As we discussed earlier this week, Joe Montana was traded, Peyton Manning was cut and Tom Brady left New England as a free agent. Brett Favre was traded for a third-round pick. Dave Robinson was traded for a second-round pick. Herb Adderley was traded to Dallas for Malcolm Walker and Clarence Williams.

Now that we have direction at QB1, do you have a sense of how players are feeling (remember what Aaron Jones said a while back when he was campaigning for AR to come back)? Personally, I’m really looking forward to the Jordan Love era.

I’m submitting my nomination for next season’s Most Valuable Packer: Tom Clements. Rodgers was a work in progress out of college and credits Clements with making him the quarterback he has become. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that Jordan Love has shown dramatic improvement under Clements’ leadership over the past year. I hope he is well compensated.

He’s one of the best in this business. Clements is an extremely intelligent individual who has a Midas touch for teaching footwork and fundamentals – two areas where I felt Love had shown significant growth over the last season. Clements has extensive experience mentoring young QBs (Rodgers, Matt Flynn and Kyler Murray). He also helped bring out the best in Tommy Maddox in Pittsburgh and Kelly Holcomb in Buffalo. Clements was built for this task.

As inevitable as it has felt for a while, part of me still can’t believe I’ll never see Aaron Rodgers in green and gold again. Now let’s turn to the Jordan Love era page together. He mastered his training under the age of 12 with real professionalism. I look forward to his next interview. I’m curious to hear his perspective on all that has happened and his perspective on the future of the franchise. He’s been waiting for this moment for a long time, go out and grab it!

If (if) Love and the Packers continue on their winning streak with wins this season, do you think a multi-year QB development/transition process would be emulated by other teams? In my opinion, learning the NFL QB position and slowing down the game before taking the reins is beneficial. But with the potentially short lifespans of NFL coaches and GMs, that may not be possible in other NFL markets.

I don’t know if QBs have to wait three full seasons, but far too many teams drop rookies when A) they’re not ready and B) their offensive support isn’t stable. Teams may be okay with one of these things being true, but not both. In this particular case, I don’t think a young QB could be asking for a better offense to get into. The Packers have two Pro Bowl-caliber offensive linemen protecting Love’s blindside, speed on the perimeter, and two veterans holding the backfield together.

No question, just a thought. Now that it looks like AR won’t be playing for the Packers, I believe it’s time for Packer Nation to get behind JL and help this young man start his era well. We look forward to what the future holds for JL and the Packer organization as a whole. Can the AR salary cap be softened in any way? Thank you for all the great work you are doing to keep Packer Nation in the loop.
