Green Bay, Wes – one bad, one good and one somewhere in the middle.
This great deal could be seen by anyone inside the gates of Clark Hinkle Field.
But what only those in the crowd knew was how insulting coach Matt LaFleur had already had to work with.
Did LaFleur and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett run an abstract version of their scheme and bring only part of the rules of the game with them to practice?
“No, we set our offensive and threw everything at him,” LaFleur said Thursday at the conclusion of the three-day camp.
If it seemed like love had overshadowed him on Tuesday, when he struggled with precision and rarely threw the ball far from the line of scrimmage, then Wednesday was 180. He hit the receivers a big stride down the field and showed poise during a successful two-minute workout.
Thursday was a combination: he threw his first interception when picking the first round Eric Stokes jump in front of the receiver Marquis Valdes-Scantling On a break road and brought him back to land. Love later lost confusion in a bad exchange with retreat Dexter Williams. But in the red zone period, he threw a pair of touchdown passes: 7 yards to the receiver Joan Winfrey In the back of the end zone and 12 yards in a cheat play for a court end Robert Tonian.
LaFleur continued his pattern of giving actor love after rep. Of the 31 snapshots on Thursday from 11 to 11 on Thursday, Love took 26 of them while Blake Burtles I got two and Kurt Bunkert Took three.
This is very different from the usual quarterback style, where the initiator takes the first four or five shots of a period followed by three or four shots for the second and a couple for the number 3. On Thursday, Love took the first 10 shots. , Bortles got two and Love got another five before Benkert took three. At some point on Tuesday, Low stayed on the field for 16 consecutive plays.
“He’s a guy who hasn’t had as much experience as the others,” LaFleur said. “We have to get him to look at a lot of different plays and really find out what he’s doing best and what our team is doing because things change every year in the NFL.
“Just trying to get a sense of how much he can really handle, and I think he’s done a great job of being intentional about his work, how he goes to train every single day, and I think it pays off for him. I think he’s made some progress.”
best moment: Love did his best at impersonating Rodgers, getting defense to jump, and free play win. Love went deep and hit Allen Lazard In a 45-yard touch move between a pair of defenders. He was part of a stretch in Wednesday training where Love had three more completions for at least 30 yards.
worst moment: On Tuesday, during a two-minute drill, he faced the fourth and seventh of the 46-yard defense line with 31 seconds left. receiver saw owner taylor Wide open on the sideline after the first down mark, but Love sailed the ball well over his outstretched arms, ending the practice.
statistics: Love completed 40 of 70 passes (57.1%) during competitive periods 11 through 11 over the three days (12 of 23 on day 1, 20 of 31 on day 2 and 8 of 16 on day 3). By comparison, Low attempted only 64 passes during team stints (11 vs. 11) at all training camps last summer as the third quarterback, and completed 37 (57.8%).
Although the numbers might not seem very different, Loew was more outspoken and confident as a leader.
“It’s part of my game that I’m trying to improve as well, just to be able to take responsibility for this crime and to be able to lead these guys and take a leadership role,” Love said. “Last year, I obviously wasn’t in that role. That was Aaron’s voice being heard etc. Now I have to be able to take that next step and take the reins and lead these guys.”
Mike Tannenbaum and Dan Graziano report how the Packers play the latest wrinkle in the Aaron Rodgers saga.
In other notes from minicamp:
Packers often line up with two starters as part of their first regular unit up front: the second round pick Josh Myers In the center and fourth round Royce Newman in the correct treatment. Billy Turner, normal right intervention, act on the left side during David Bakhtiari He continued his left anterior cruciate ligament rehabilitation.
The two up-and-coming defensive backs also made noteworthy games: Stokes had six players and a fifth corner back. Shemar Jean Charles Breaking pass on the sideline dedicated to Valdes-Scantling.
While Davant Adams Attended, he didn’t take any shots during 7-on-7 or 11-on-11 periods. Adams, who has skipped the OTAs, said it will be full by the time boot camp starts.
Speaking of the start of the training camp, no official date has been announced, but LaFleur several times referred to July 27 as the start.
