After all that has been made of Jordan Love, this may just be who he is

There is no one correct way to develop an NFL quarterback. Success stories include those who started from Day 1 and those who waited their turn for years.

The Green Bay Packers have employed the latter strategy twice in succession because they had two Hall of Fame quarterbacks play out their time in Green Bay before being moved aside for a successor.

Brett Favre gave way so that Aaron Rodgers could flourish, and Rodgers was eventually ushered out so that the Jordan Love era could commence.

Though the early signs were encouraging, the more we see of Love, the more it looks like he may be the same player he was four years ago in college.

The Packers drafted Love in the first round in lieu of receiving weapons for Rodgers because they saw a chance to jumpstart the future. He was an unusual prospect, as his best college season was not his final one. In 2018, he passed for 8.5 yards per attempt, earned an 83.5 PFF grade and threw only six interceptions.
