We’ve already heard from Aaron Rodgers and Packers President Mark Murphy on the now infamous B/R article.
Now in the wake of the Bleacher Report article that dove into the previous relationship between ex-coach Mike McCarthy, quarterback Aaron Rodgers, and the rest of the Green Bay Packers organization, it wouldn’t be a surprise if coach Matt LaFleur was feeling stressed about his new job.
LaFleur spoke to The MMQB:
“Honestly, I haven’t put a whole lot of thought into that,” LaFleur said. “I wasn’t here, so I don’t know what happened. And quite frankly, I don’t really care what happened. All I care about is how we move forward as a football team. All I care about is the partnership that we’re forming, how that goes, and our communication. That’s all I really care about.”
The new Packers man in charge understands a good relationship with Aaron Rodgers is essential.
“That relationship is critical, and it’s not necessarily because I’m the head coach-it’s because I’m the play-caller,” LaFleur told Breer. “You have to develop relationships with everyone in that building. But when it comes to Aaron, it’s so critical, because I’m the play-caller. And so anytime you’re the play-caller, you better have a relationship with that quarterback. I do believe this, and I’ve said it from Day 1 — it’s a partnership.
“And I’ll tell you what, I don’t care what’s been said, I’ve spent a week with him, and I’ve really enjoyed every second of it.”
If the Packers come out of the gate with some wins, all will be forgotten.
If not, this guy’s job is going to suck.
