The Packers won 13 games during the regular season and were sixty minutes from appearing in the Super Bowl, but that doesn’t mean head coach Matt LaFleur is resting on his past successes this offseason.
When asked about possible changes to his staff this off-season, LaFleur said they were still in the evaluation stage, “We’re still sorting through everything right now… obviously the last game was disappointing in terms of our performance… it just wasn’t good enough.”
Despite the defense giving up 285 rushing yards to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, LaFleur didn’t put the blame entirely on defensive coordinator or his unit, “our offense and special teams weren’t up to par; I was just disappointed with just, it didn’t seem like we had the same energy and effort that we displayed over the course of the season.”
In a lighter moment this morning, LaFleur said he learned a lot about himself in his first year of coaching and heaped praise upon quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Of Rodgers, LaFleur said he still thought he was one of the best players in the game and, “looked forward to another off-season with him.”
