Jordan Love Doesn’t Believe Packers Need True WR1

Jordan Love Doesn’t Believe Packers Need True WR1

I think it goes without saying that the first season that Green Bay Packers quarterback Jordan Love took over as the full-time starter was a success in spades. Love had an incredible season, throwing for more than 4,000 yards and 32 touchdowns compared to 11 interceptions.

Normally, when you hear those kinds of stats, you expect there to be one dominant receiver on the team, but that was not the case this season, as the leading receiver on the team last season was Jayden Reed with 793 yards. Not having a true WR1, in my opinion, is a recipe for disaster, but not to Love.

Jordan Love was speaking to reporters for the Packers website this week, and he believes this team does not need a bonafide top guy for this team to still be successful going forward.

Full quote via NFL.com:

“I think you don’t have to have a No. 1 receiver,” Love said this week, via the team’s official website. “I think it works out well when you can spread the ball out and you got different guys making different plays and you can put ’em in different areas.

“I think it puts a lot more stress on the defense and the calls that they can get in, so I think in the long run it helps us not having a No. 1 guy, a true No. 1 guy, but I think all those guys can step up and be the one any given day.”

When the Green Bay Packers drafted Christian Watson No. 34 overall in 2022, many expected him to take the role as the WR1 on the team. However, Watson’s career had been plagued with injuries thus far, so guys like Jayden Reed and Romeo Doubs had to step up last season.

Maybe it’s just me, but if you have multiple guys who could be a WR1, you have no guys who will be the WR1. If Jordan Love thinks this can work for them, good for him. But eventually, this is going to turn into a whole mess.
