Jordan Love charged with possession of marijuana

Recommended Posts

Actually this could help the colts if he drops to the second round. We can get our stud on defense and take him with the Washington pick. Would ballard still take a chance on him,   This is a big deal because this will get you suspended in the NFL. If your doing stuff like this that can get you suspended you can’t be the franchise.

Shane Ray, Jeremy Tunsil, Warren Sapp to name a few. 
 

If, Love test well, he’ll be fine. Agents have these guys well prepared for the “question.”

Well, that's less than ideal... it always amazes me how many stupid decisions those kids make and jeopardize multi-million dollar careers.

He certainly should be suspended.

Yeah it’s not that he did it. Your about ready to go in the NFL why would he want this to put a cloud around him and his decision making. Stupid decision.

Ok here is what I don't get.  They drug test them and charge them but thousands overdose and I never hear them get charged.

Rumor started by Ballard?

Now we don't need to trade up for him.

Heck, maybe even wait 'til the second round(?).

 

j/k of course.

The more concerning thing is not having the brains to put yourself up to make the most out of your situation.

Truly who cares, next CBA needs to follow baseball lead and get rid of it. I am a college student, you see how many people have it or use it.

As long as there are federal laws I highly doubt the NFL will overlook it.

I wouldn't really care if a guy was established and decided to smoke, but if I don't know what you're going to do in the pro's, this is nothing but a red flag.

It really does show bad decision making. As a franchise QB that is very important. Your about ready to get drafted pretty high. You should never put yourself in situations like this that might put your decision making in question. If this was any other position it wouldn’t matter as much.

at the very least thIs shows very poor judgment. Love should know that everyone is looking at him leading into the biggest job interview of his life. That is always the one thing I don’t completely understand. If you know people are going to be looking closely at you for a multi million dollar opportunity you should be smart enough to not put yourself in this position. This goes extra for a possible future franchise First round quarterback.

 

The consequences could really hurt him also. Hypothetically let’s say he is suspended for the bowl game and can’t play. That is one less evaluation that he gets. Then let’s say they pull his senior bowl invite. There goes another opportunity to elevate his stock. This could maybe not hurt him at all but it could also hurt him a lot. 
 

one other question. Name me a franchise qb that has this kinda thing hanging over him headed into the draft. (I know Baker Mayfield has the arrest video, so name me another because we also know he has shown to be very immature).

So, when he misses open receivers what are our thoughts? 


1. He’s only been a starter going on 2 years

2. His knees hurt

3. The injuries to the WR’s

4. The WR’s aren’t very good

5. Need to draft Ceede Lamb cuz that will make him better 

6. He needs more weapons

7. It’s Frank’s fault

8. He’s still “developing”

9. Hoyer sucks

Totally agree. I personally don't care about weed but someone makes this poor of a choice is that someone a team should look at as their franchise quarterback?

 

I recently read a book Bruce Arians wrote. In it he spoke about the importance of giving guys second chances (Tyrann Mathieu) but also stressed the importance of what's between the ears of the quarterback. I'm not thinking Jordan Love is a terrible person/teammate because of this but this is an example of some really bad judgment. Franchise quarterback and bad judgment do not go together.

Just to get the opinions of @stitches/ Others who would stand on the table for Jordan Love:

 

Does this news do anything when it comes to how you view Love (i.e. does he go down in your QB/player rankings or remain where he is?)


Because for me, I like Love but I would prefer to draft him in with the Redskins pick/ trade back into the 1st round for him and get a DT with our first pick and I feel like this news may consolidate this idea and I just wanted to get the thoughts of others who really like Love.

Meh. It's no bigger deal than underage drinking IMO. Utah has been trying to legalize (recreational) for a while an already OK'd it for medical. Sure it was stupid given the timing, but a meh nonetheless.

Problem is who's to say he won't do it in the pro's which would get him suspended. I personally don't think what he did is that bad but it is a bad look and a concern moving forward IMO.

I'm not thinking Jordan Love is a terrible person/teammate because of this but this is an example of some really bad judgment. Franchise quarterback and bad judgment do not go together.

Here is the quote from Love’s attorney:

Love’s attorney, Skye Lazaro, issued a statement via email to The Salt Lake Tribune regarding the incident.
“Contrary to initial reports Jordan Love was not arrested for any offense, but simply cited by the officer for a low-level misdemeanor possession charge," Lazaro said. "Based on the information available at this time, there was no marijuana or other illegal substances recovered at the scene. Jordan maintains his innocence and is confident he will be exonerated as this matter progresses through the judicial process.”

 

I understand attorneys have to argue in defense of the player, but if you look at the report, the  Logan, Utah police smelt weed after getting a complaint and charged everyone in the room they thought the smell had come from. I am a HUGE Utah State fan so I am hoping it was just a being in the wrong place at the wrong time kind of situation. I did not think he would be the type to do something like this at one of the most important points in his life. He has not had any previous drug or law issues, so I am hoping things get sorted out.

Whether it is legal and illegal is a whole other discussion. All I’m saying is it is a bad look. Just shows poor judgement. 

99% of college kids show some type of poor judgement

Correct but those 99% aren’t looking to land a multimillion dollar job and be the face of a Franchise. He can’t be one of the guys. He must be better than that.

My guess this won’t even be a issue by the time the combine rolls around. Especially if he does well in interviews and the whiteboard.

You won’t get an argument out of me on that. But when a team is gonna pay you 120 million dollars to play a game. Just make good choices and stay away from the weed.

Yup. And innocent until proven guilty.

 

It sounds like he was just in an apartment where the smoking happened. Still stupid, but I don't see it having a major impact so long as everything else is fine.

I had my suspicions.  Certain things just didn't add up based upon the way I see things.  I'd have to undo decades of the cover-up type of education you've likely received before you'd see what I see, and that type of re-education isn't appropriate for a football forum.

The story says they got a warrant to get a urine test and they all tested positive. What makes the story crazier is both his parents are cops.

    • Well, we already check two of those boxes last year. We were 7th rushing, and 7th against the run. Rivers, even with his horrible OL, was 6th in passing. So that's a realistic 3 out of 4 already......   So the pass D is the only outlier.... I said we need to be top 15 vs the pass. We were 23rd last year and had almost zero pass rush and a good amount of injury to our DBs. In 2018, we were only one off at 16th and didn't have the best pass rush either. We've added Buckner, so that should buy us a couple ticks up. If we have good health, Hooker returns to form, and Rhodes rebounds, top 15 is not so crazy.   Very doable IMO
    • Actually I think I may have went Vikings  . I love the Vikings this year, Captain Kirk , this flip flopping I do
    • It’s all about explosive plays. That was basically the stated offseason goal of the offense...more explosive plays. They don’t want to grind out games with TOP. That’s not to say they won’t be run heavy with a lead at times...but they are going to try to put points on the board often. 
    • Haha...just? A team like that is easily one of the top 2-3 overall teams in the NFL...a SB favorite heading into the playoffs.
    • My apologies to all.  I should have used "a distraction" vs. the terms I used in an earlier post.
