“It was about the look on defense,” Rodgers said. “I was actually kind of surprised that he was coming over to talk about that, but we got it all sorted out over there on the sideline. It actually wasn’t a big deal. … We’re a little animated at times. I can’t say we were yelling how much we love each other, but we definitely weren’t MF-ing each other or anything. It was talking about the look there and getting on the same page.”

LaFleur sat next to Rodgers on the bench while the Packers’ defense was on the field. Rodgers couldn’t remember many times when his head coach sat next to him on the bench while the game was going on.

“It’s different,” he said, noting that interim coach Joe Philbin did it a couple of times last year in the final four games after Mike McCarthy was fired.

“It’s definitely helpful, when he’s bouncing stuff off — ‘Do you like this? Do you like that? Do you want to start with this? You want to get to this?'” Rodgers added. “Obviously I did that with Mike a bunch, I’d kind of go to over where he was at, but Matt likes to get cozy on the bench.”

Neither Rodgers nor LaFleur was surprised or seemed annoyed by the line of questioning — a sign they had already moved on from the exchange.

“That’s just two competitive guys, and I’m sure it’s not going to be the last one we have,” LaFleur said. “But you know, just competitors, heat of the moment, and it is what it is. I would much rather have that than anything else because you want guys that are extreme competitors, and that’s what he is.”

Fights are ok when you’re winning. 

But we’ll see how they fare if the L’s start piling up.
