Suggests to me thst Aaron might be more of an issue than they let on.

Not only did they not make a "win now" pick, but now Matt will have some leverage the next time Aaron won't step into his throws, or keeps running the clock down. Or wants to call the plays.

The franchise is no longer exclusively worried about getting Aaron another ring, they're more focused on what is good for the franchise.

From Bob McGinn:

4. JORDAN LOVE, Utah State (6-3 ½, 224, 4.71, 1-2): Love is a fourth-year junior from Bakersfield, Calif. “He has the most physical upside of any of these guys,” said one scout. “The great ones make things look easy. He makes it look easy. He’s an effortless thrower. He played with nobody around him. This year he was just out there winging it trying to make plays to win games. Did he develop some bad habits? Yeah, of course he did. But you can rein that in. It’s (easier) to get guys that like to play it safe and check down and be chain-movers. It’s hard to get those guys that push the ball down the field. He’s the only quarterback I ever scouted who will throw into bigger windows as a pro than he did in college. Those guys did not get open for him. If he ends up outside the top 10 we could be saying, ‘How the heck did Jordan Love last that long?’ He’s just got that play-making ability.” In 2018, his best season, his NFL passer rating was 110.7. Last year, with a depleted supporting cast, it was 82.8 for a career mark of 92.0. Career record was 21-11. “The body language was awful and the accuracy was worse,” another scout said. “He didn’t look like he knew what he was doing or that he wanted to play. There were numerous times he’s looking right at an open wideout or a tight end coming right in the middle and the two linebackers are on the hashes and there’s a receiver standing in the middle of the field and he doesn’t throw it to him. Or he throws it to him late. I don’t think he’s correctable.” His vertical jump of 35 ½ inches tied Herbert for the best among the top quarterbacks. Cited for marijuana possession in December. “He’s a risk-reward guy,” a third scout said. “You question the makeup. He got (cited) for weed. You don’t want the face of your franchise getting (cited) for weed … (Editor’s note: Charges were ultimately dropped in January). It’s really going to take some time because the offense he played in is pretty simple. But a terrific athlete, quick release, plenty of arm, big hands (10 ½), great touch, accurate on the move. But poor decisions, question his focus, his vision, his accuracy against pressure. He’s soft-spoken and confident. Not great on the board. You know, good luck.” Love posted a Wonderlic of 27.

It blows my mind that they continue to do everything but actually try to put viable weapons around Rodgers to win now.

I don't know a damn thing about Jordan Love. I really have nothing against him and maybe he will be great and Gute will look like a genius down the road, but it's certainly not going to help us maximize the time we have left with Rodgers or win next season.

I'm just so tired of us neglecting ILB literally year after year now...Chargers trade up over us to get Murray, Steelers last year for Bush, Ravens perfectly fine with Queen...

I won't comment on Love. If we think he's a good QB, fine. Just tired of dumbass GMs/DCs that think ILB in a 3-4 isn't worth any type of significant resources.

They're. Flat. Out. Wrong.

Will be interesting to see how Aaron handles this, since he was on the other side of this once. Does he act like Favre and go "I'm not paid to mentor a backup" and carry a grudge against the GM, or does he welcome Love as a teammate and act graciously and not like a d***?

WTF is human movement science one of those degree you take as a athlete and hope to never need because it's a useless major?

Human Movement Science is the study of how people move in different contexts and of the factors related to the analysis, improvement and recovery of physical activity. Focus is on issues encountered in physical activity in every-day life, related to work and free time, as well as recreational and top-level sports.
