Guess what the 'D' stands for?

Ex-Packers teammates are ripping Aaron Rodgers again

These stories just keep on coming.

When leaving Green Bay, it's customary to find a media outlet and start ripping Aaron Rodgers. Unless, of course, you're the brother of Rodgers. Then it's customary to bash him as often as possible. 

The latest ripping barrage was first revealed in an article in Forbes, where the writer documents multiple ex-teammates recently questioning whether new head coach, 39-year-old Matt LaFleur, will able to co-exist with Rodgers.

“He’s coachable to a point,” said former Packers tight end Jermichael Finley on the Bill Michaels Sports Talk Network. “Once you try to overcoach him, that’s when he’s going to do his own thing. With (former coach Mike) McCarthy, McCarthy used to call a play and Aaron would look at him and (then) it’s a whole different play.

“And we just ran the play that No. 12 called. Sorry. And I think it's going to be a lot worse with a young guy (LaFleur) and with where Aaron’s at in his career.

In the NFL, every team has a head coach, a quarterbacks coach and a quarterback. It sounds like Rodgers is trying to hold all of those job titles in Green Bay. 

Allow ex-Packers defensive end Kabeer Gbaja-Bjamila to explain his experience with Rodgers. 

“When Aaron became ‘The Man,’ he was ‘The Man’, especially in his own eyes,” Gbaja-Biamila says in the Forbes story. “Let’s just put it that way. Things just changed. I don’t know what to say. I don’t want to lie to you. It’s hard for me to say this without causing drama."

Perfect trophy for Rodgers, probably the last one he will ever get. He has actually barely earned a HOF bust at this point. 

Train like you are 2nd, but play like you are 1st.

I hate Rodgers, I truly hope we are seeing his fall from grace.

Matt LaFleur will lean on analytics for in-game decisions

Posted by Darin Gantt on February 20, 2019, 6:48 AM EST

New Packers coach Matt LaFleur has never been a head coach at any level, so he won’t have a wealth of experience to draw from when he gets in game situations this year. He’s hoping he has numbers on his side.

Via Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, LaFleur has been thinking about the role of analytics in his future decision-making process, and is implementing plans to use numbers as a tool. He didn’t hire a specific game-management coach as others have, but he retained Mike McCarthy’s analytics staff, and plans to have General Manager Brian Gutekunst come up with specific situations during OTA practices to test his decision-making. He did similar things as the offensive coordinator of the Titans, but the pressure is obviously different now.

“Being the play caller I want to think on my feet,” LaFleur said. “Tell me you’re going to throw one in — and we’ll throw one in randomly, because that’s what this game is about, it’s about sudden change, it’s about being able to react to any adversity.

‘[In Tennessee] it was really beneficial, because there were a couple times where I was like, ‘Ooof.’ I’m trying to think real fast, I haven’t thought about this, what am I going to do? Then you do whatever you can in that moment, then go back and reflect, OK, was it good or could I have done something different?”

He’s going to meet regularly with his staff during the offseason, to create those scenarios to test players (and himself) in practice, as he learns the whens and the hows of being in charge.

“Numbers are great but they don’t tell the whole story,” LaFleur said. “That’s why I think you need to go along with the story. You can’t just blanket-statement stuff. . . . Going back to [an end-of-half] example, who’s the quarterback? How’s our defense playing? There are so many variables you have to take into account. Sometimes you have to trust your gut.”

That might sound like an old-school coach’s take, but LaFleur seems prepared to embrace the help, as he enters a new realm of responsibility.

******

and Aaron D. Rodgers will change his play in the huddle to what ever Aaron thinks is cool.

Next year will be even better!

“He has to embrace it, and I think he is. I hope he adapts well. I’m excited. I know he’s excited. I’ve had some discussions with him,” Packers president Mark Murphy told ESPN Tuesday when discussing Rodgers and LaFleur. (RELATED: Packers QB Aaron Rodgers Says He Won’t Get Surgery On His Knee)

I can already tell this is going to be an absolute disaster. I’ve never once believed that Rodgers is an easy guy to work with.

In fact, he’s always come off to me as a dude that is a headache. Now, he’s got a new coach, he’s on a massive contract, and they’re expecting him to just “embrace” what’s happening.

Good luck. There’s a better chance in my mind that I marry a supermodel by the end of the week than there is Rodgers rolls over for changes coming down the pipeline.

What do you think is going to happen if LaFleur starts to take the team in a direction Rodgers doesn’t like or approve of? I’m sure it won’t be handled well.

The good news is that it’s going to be incredibly entertaining if this whole thing goes down in flames in Green Bay.

It will all be roses until they lose a couple two three games and then shit will hit the fan and the finger pointing will begin.

I just read they got the team bus power washed to get all the McCarthy stains off, now they gonna get some new stains? Aaron better watch out or he might just get stuck with that difficult label.

Next year will be even better!
