Happy Hour Replay: QB coach Steve Calhoun on 'quiet assassin,' Jordan Love
The private coach to the Packers quarterback hangs out with Go Long subscribers. Watch the full hour right here.
If Jordan Love is everything the Green Bay Packers hope he is, this a cut-and-dry decision for GM Brian Gutekunst: You trade your unhappy starter for picks and players and move on.
If… If… of course.
That’s the multi-billion dollar question right now. And, frankly, the Packers never had a chance to see Love be Love as a rookie. He was on the scout team all year, pretending to be someone else.
You all know where I stand here, in writing the Packers should fully embrace their first-round pick and enter a new era. But I figured we’d have the one coach who knows Love best come onto our Happy Hour: Steve Calhoun of Armed and Dangerous.
Calhoun has worked with Love since high school and, as we found out, was much more than a football coach. He’s been a mentor for Love since the QB’s father passed away. He’s seen Love grow as a person and a player.
A huge Thank You to our new subscribers who joined — we’ll be getting several former Packers players on the Happy Hour over the coming weeks, too. Calhoun was phenomenal throughout the full hour, dissecting Love’s game, Love’s mentality and what could make him special as an NFL quarterback. Calhoun also offers a prediction for how this stalemate ends.
