In the narrative-oriented world of sports media, it’s easy to fall into the trap of wanting a story to be true so you have, well, a story.
After a few improved offensive performances, for instance, it’s really tempting to dive fully into the idea that the young Packers have turned a corner, that Jordan Love is the answer, and that a new age of great quarterbacking is upon us.
It’s possible that’s true, but progress is rarely so easily defined. You really don’t see a defined moment where, in real time, you can point to a game or a play and say “yes, now things have all come together.”
But on the other hand, if Jordan Love is the answer, if he does secure another decade of great quarterback play in Green Bay, he and his young teammates will have turned the corner at some point. If he’s going to be great, there will have been an inflection point — perhaps even several. And if that’s the case, why can’t that inflection point be right now? As always, we’ll have to wait and see.
Whatever it means for the long-term success of the Packers, Sunday’s win was nice to see.
