The Green Bay Packers are reportedly ready to move on from Aaron Rodgers and give Jordan Love the keys to the offense.
Some fans might not be thrilled to hear that, as Love hasn’t looked all that great in the limited chances he’s gotten.
He’s thrown fewer than 90 passes in the NFL, logging three touchdowns against three interceptions.
However, former offensive guru and HC Mike Martz seems to be quite high on the Utah State product as Rodgers’ replacement.
Martz recently raved about Love’s mobility and delivery, stating that he’s often quite calm and poised in the pocket while also praising his quick release and throwing mechanics.
He added that Love is perfectly familiar with the offense now after three seasons on the sidelines and claimed that the Packers need to do whatever it takes to hold on to him, even if they have him as a backup for another season:
“He’s got a very dynamic delivery; much like Aaron [Rodgers] has,” Martz said. “Whatever you gotta do to keep him. Invested three years in him in the same system. I think you hang on to him, do whatever you can. Whether it’s another year or two years down the road, I think he’ll end up being a heck of a player for them.”
“Just watching him, I’ve never been so shocked or taken by a guy at first glance.”

Packers GM Brian Gutekunst has also raved about Love recently.
He believes that he’s ready to prove his worth and silence his critics once and for all, and he went as far as to say that he needs to play in 2023.
Some believe that Love is ready to force his way out of Green Bay if he’s not the starter this season, and the word around the league is that the Packers don’t actually want Rodgers to come back.
So, with one of the best offensive-minded guys in recent NFL history showering him with praise, maybe Packers fans can breathe after all.
