The Green Bay Packers are under new management with rookie head coach Matt LaFleur calling the shots, and Aaron Rodgers has an issue with something he’s doing.
LaFleur has the Packers running live special teams drills, which Rodgers sais isn’t “very smart.”
“I don’t think doing live special teams drills is very smart,” Rodgers said via Pro Football Talk. “I think the [NFL]PA is going to look at that, for sure. The kickoff especially is one of the most dangerous plays in football, and that’s why they’ve tweaked different things over the years. Close to a live kickoff drill I don’t think is best use of a [joint] practice.”
The point he’s making is salient, but to say that it is no “very smart” here may not have been the best approach. Even though he’s not saying the name “Matt LaFleur” he’s absolutely pointing to the coach here.
This isn’t the first time Rodgers has been on a different page than his new head coach, either. It truly makes one wonder if Rodgers is going to clash during the season with yet another head coach.
