Matt LaFleur changed the culture surrounding the Green Bay Packers in his first year as head coach. He came in and helped lead the team to an impressive 13-3 regular season record. In addition to that feat, he also led Green Bay to the NFC Championship Game.
While the Packers are excited about their future, many fans and media members are concerned about the future of star quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Some think he is slowing down due to age. Others are starting to say that he was overrated from the beginning.
Despite all of the criticism, LaFleur shared his thoughts on Rodgers’ 2019 season and his opinion is much different than the mainstream beliefs.
In a quote shared by Lily Zhao of WFRV, LaFleur had nothing but good things to say about Rodgers.
“I thought he played pretty damn good last year.”
Short but sweet is sometimes the best way to go. LaFleur is very excited about working with Rodgers throughout the offseason and preparing for an even bigger 2020 season. Green Bay’s championship window is officially open once again.
Rodgers completed 62 percent of his pass attempts in 2019 for the Packers to go along with 4,002 yards, 26 touchdowns, and just four interceptions. Those numbers don’t look too shabby do they? Green Bay should still be very confident in their franchise quarterback.
It will be interesting to see what the Packers do this offseason. They should add more weapons for Rodgers to work with.
Expect to see Rodgers come back in 2020 and put together another impressive season. A full offseason of work with LaFleur will help get the offense on the same page.
