Green Bay Packers: Quarterback coach Clements believes in Jordan Love – “Has all the skills”.

Jordan Love succeeds Aaron Rodgers as the starting quarterback for the Green Bay Packers. The Cheeseheads’ playmaking coach expresses his confidence in the 24-year-old.

Before the start of last season, Tom Clements returned to the Green Bay Packers as quarterbacks coach – primarily to work with Aaron Rodgers.

But while the latter has since departed for the New York Jets, Clements has stayed on and now has a new starting quarterback in Jordan Love as his protégé.

Just recently, Packers head coach Matt LaFleur stressed that Clements was responsible for some of the “great strides” Love made last year. Now the Packers playmakers coach has spoken out himself.

So, speaking to US reporters, he stated that he feels Love has what it takes to be a franchise quarterback.

Packers quarterbacks coach praises Jordan Love

“First of all, he can throw the ball,” the coach is quoted as saying by the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “And that’s what he has to do in the NFL. He’s very athletic. He can move and make time. He’s very intelligent.”

He added: “He generally makes good decisions, just has to play right now and work on processing information, making good decisions and getting the ball to the right player. He has all the qualities you want in a player to be successful.”

In his three years with the Packers so far, Love got little playing time behind Rodgers. Overall, he completed 50 of 83 passes for 606 yards and three touchdowns.

Incidentally, when asked how long it might take to know if Love can truly succeed, Clements tempered expectations, saying, “I don’t think you can put a time on it. “
