With Aaron Rodgers announcing he intends to play for the Jets rather than retire, the era of Jordan Love has all but started in Green Bay. And luckily enough for Love, he’s being entered into an offense where he can succeed from the start.
For starters, Love is being placed into an offense where the load can and will be taken off him. Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon are one of if not the best RB duos in all of the NFL. The Packers run game, when given the touches, is one of the best in the NFL and what’s a better way to help Love insert himself into the offense than taking the pressure out of his hands.
Helping Love settle in will take time, but giving the ball to Jones and Dillon will certainly speed up that process, while also allowing Love to get into a flow on offense and learn even faster. The Packers offensive line will also help with this, as they are more than likely retaining all their starters from last year barring a potential Bakhtiari trade which is unlikely at best.
Love will step into an offense with one of the best young offensive lines in football, while having veterans in David Bakhtiari and Elgton Jenkins protecting love. One of the bigger reasons Love can be a star is the WR play. We saw Love throw a TD pass to Watson last year in a game vs the eagles, and from the little time he played, he made Green Bay fans look excited for the future.
With Doubs also coming along great in his rookie year, this duo will immediately be able to develop a connection with Love, and could create a scary big three. The Packers will also more than likely look to get a WR and TE in the draft, and whatever young player they get will immediately make an impact, which should help Love settle in even more.
The Packers offense is one that makes it easy on quarterbacks once they are able to get the hang of it. Love will be tasked with a lot and have a lot on his plate, but the combination of all those factors should make it easy for him to get on a role quickly, and help the Packers make their return to the playoffs come next season.
