Aaron Rodgers says he and Matt LaFleur weren’t “yelling how much we love each other”

AP

Aaron Rodgers and Matt LaFleur got into it . . . and got over it.

Winning surely helped.

The Packers quarterback smiled when asked about the animated conversation he had with his coach on the sideline in the second quarter.

“We got it all sorted out there on the sideline,” Rodgers said, via Matt Schneidman of TheAthletic.com. “It wasn’t a big deal. . . .I can’t say we were yelling how much we love each other, but we definitely weren’t MF’ing each other.”

Rodgers indicated he appreciated LaFleur sitting by him on the bench while the defense was on the field.

After throwing the ball away under pressure late in the second quarter, Rodgers barked at LaFleur, “What do you want me to do?”

The back and forth continued for a few more seconds.

    You are going to be talking about this for the next few weeks
    ================================================================
    Yep second time already they have written bout it

  2. Not a Pack fan but somehow the Purples will find a way to spin this into being a far bigger deal than GB getting the W. In fact by the time they are done twisting reality to suit them this will actually be a Vikes win.

  3. Can you imagine Brady, Brees, Mahomes, Watson, or Rivers doing that with their head coaches? Rodgers’ doesn’t respect LaFleur and is actively working to undermind him like he did with McCarthy.

  4. Rodgers throws more balls away than every other QB each year because he tries to protect his stats and avoid INTs.

    Hope he was being called out on his “me first” approach to being a QB. If he listens it will help the Packers make another SuperBowl run.

  5. Brady does it and it’s written off as he’s competitive. Get over it people these are competitive dudes playing an emotional game. This topic is so much overkill it’s ridiculous.

    So you would rather him force throws? Not me. Picks are killers. Ask a Cousins today, that pick in the end zone was a killer.

  8. Here we go, love it, 2 guys arguing and this isn’t gonna stop. Yes big win but can’t wait when they start losing.

    The fact you genuinely don’t realize that these sideline disagreements don’t go on with the top QBs and their coaches speaks volumes to just how niave you really are.

  10. So…Rogers wants to be able to call plays at the line and when he does and it doesn’t work it is the coaches fault….Can’t stand him as he is a diva and takes no responsibility.

  11. I am not a fan of Rodgers personality but I am a fan of his play – which is all I care about. If I look around that Division I’d be smiling too. Stafford – love the guy but never gonna take you anywhere. The other two will never be stars. Bears got Mad Defense but I still think it is GBs to lose.

    Most of us have seen Brady, Brees and Rivers go at with a HC or OC. Give Mahomes and Watson a chance. They haven’t been at it all that long, they are passionate about winning they’ll get there

    ======================================

    Brady has done it with McDaniels. Brees has done it with Payton. Rivers has done it with multiple coaches.

  14. It happens. Brady snapped at his OC once and people just took it as him being the ultimate competitor.

  15. I think Rodgers is getting a taste of the unfair treatment Favre got in the media during the final years of career. Which is ironic because it benefited Rodgers at the time.

  16. Secretly all of the Viking fans are cursing the draft where they passed on Rodgers not once but twice and because of that and another poor decision are saddled with Kirk Cousins this year and next. I’d rather have two guys like Matt and Aaron than the duo you have in Minnesota. What a shame to waste your defense and play makers like this. Our guys are passionate about winning. Nothing to see here. Move on.

  17. Erin is wierd. Had Cousins not thrown a first down pick in the end zone, this would be all about how he is such a narcissist.

  18. I like the competitive passion during the game from both. You don’t want to see them in a exchange like that 15 times a game, but you also don’t want a head coach and QB that are afraid to question eachother in the heat of battle.

    Aaron was honest about exactly what happened and LaFleur said he wouldn’t want a QB who isn’t competitive like Aaron is.

    I didn’t see Savage get hurt but I hear there is a little something with him. I also hope we get positive news on Raven Greene tomorrow. I fear it is a bad high ankle deal like EQ. Raven Greene would be a big loss for this defense.

    Glad we won this one for Bart! I am man enough to admit that seeing Cherry Starr in tears today brought a tear to my eye. I miss Bart too Cherry!

    Actually, Brady has done this at least twice. with O’Brien in 2011 when he was the Pat’s OC, and he’s done it with Mc Daniels. Re the O’Brien Brady beef, it appeared that O’Brien initiated it, but Brady definitely didn’t back down and it was Belichick who broke it up.

    I think the fact you genuinely are confusing yelling at McDaniels vs yelling at Belichick speaks volumes to just how little football you watch. Yelling at your OC, sure. That’s why I specifically wrote head coach.

    Snapping at McDaniels is a far cry from snapping at BB…

    This is such a petty issue. Having said that, McDaniels calls the plays for the Pats, LaFleur calls them for the Packers. BB does not call the plays. One small detail to consider.

    The Packers are undefeated and in first place after 2 divisional wins.
    Good place to be.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Too bad it’s not a two game season for the Packers. They won’t win the division.

    Instead it is once again about Purples embarrassing themselves

  25. The officials should wear GB gear, or GB needs to switch to stripes. You are going against all of them every time you play them. Give the “fans” some slack, it’s all they got. When the Bucks played good, they all came out of the woodwork, now that cooled off. When the Brewers were good last year, everyone jumped on the bandwagon, now they turn their backs on them because they aren’t playing well. Once Rodgers gets hurt or retires and they go 15-20 years of poor play like they did in the 70’s-80’s, everyone around here will be back to talking smack about them. A fair weather fan base if there is one. How do I know, because I live in GB.

    Today we saw a contender beat up on a very poor 3rd place football team, and take sole possession of first place in the NFC North.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Contender? Beat up? This game came down to the wire, it came down to one play with several questionable calls. Really, how much better do you actually think one of these teams is?

    Zimmy looks completely bewildered by the Rodgers/LaFleur combo.//////

    Sure Zim was that is why he shut them out in the last 3 quarters of the game.
    Down 21-0 and the Vikings made a game of it. And if it wasn’t for the kicker and QB. The Vikings come from behind and beat your pack.

  28. The football gods have a way of handing delicious Karma paybacks to arrogant fools like Ewwin Wawgers.

  29. Can’t believe some people think he is the best of all time. Give me a break. He’s definitely not better QB than Brady, never mind Montana, Marino and a bunch others.

    Vikings will be 0-3 after the Raiders beat them next week

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    Vikings record is 1-1. Math is hard.

  31. My favorite part of the game was Diggs being Diggs. He makes a play with his team down significant points and what does he do? He jaws. And he jaws. And he jaws. And he costs his team a point.

    Diggs never met a camera he didn’t want to jaw into.

  32. Man, two articles today filled to the brim with Barneys shedding tears as big as apples.
    It absolutely warms my heart with every crybaby post.
    What a great day!!!

  33. Lol,anyone see or hear anything from Vikings4Life? He said the Bears are gonna be in the basement for years,,I guess its possible,but not likely ,but I just wanted him to know,as a Bear fan,we just moved over, and made room for him,and his team!

    Rodgers should win something before he flaps his gums
    ————-

    Like multiple MVPs? Like a Super Bowl? Yes, it was almost 10 years ago, but how many have the Vikings won in their 58 years?

    Now go kiss Mommy and then cry yourself to sleep. Tomorrow is a school day.

  35. Congrats Pack fans — thought the game was going to be a blowout there in the first quarter. We all got to see the difference between a team with a good QB/good D and a team with a good D/lousy QB.

  36. >> patswinyoucry says: Rodgers is such a drama queen. <<

    A Pats fan … talking smack … about the character flaws … of a player named Aaron. Riiiiiight 👌

  37. Packers fans are unbelievable, they are one play and a bad call from being 0-2. Better talk your trash now because it’s only downhill from here.

    ________________________________________

    Regarding the start of a blowout and this article we’re commenting on….

    I give credit to MN. for adjusting after the 1st quarter, but I have to wonder how much of that adjustment was LaFleur taking his foot off the gas and that being the reason for Rodger’s frustration

    Rodger’s biggest complaint regarding McCarthy was always his conservative play calling.

    Those two 3rd and short calls and the 4th and short call were not Aaron’s first choices I’d wager.

    The Vikings will end up with a world class QB after Rodgers signs with them when he’s 45….he’ll lead them to the NFC championship game only to have an old Mason Crosby miss a last second field goal ending their season.

    Shoulda, woulda, coulda. If that’s all you’ve got, by all means stick with it.

    It’s simple: Packers W, Vikings L

  40. Vikings fans commenting:

    Would you rather have a competitive QB that has won a super bowl and multiple MVPs, or a guy that can’t beat winning teams, and is statistically a .500 QB?

    I mean, you don’t get a choice. You have the crappy one for another 2 seasons.

    Where’s Rob? He was saying Rodgers arm isn’t what it used to be. He was throwing dimes off his back foot today that Cousins couldn’t dream of throwing.

  41. It’s funny. Vikings fans are always talking smack in September, but when January and February come, they are already on the golf course.
    Vikings fans were pounding their chests all week about what they were going to do to the Packers, but as usual, their team let them down.
    The bottom line is — Aaron Rodgers is on another level from Kirk “Fumble Man” Cousins. You’re stuck with Cousins, who is playing like he has always played — mediocre.
    Packers 2 and 0. Lions 2 and 0. Vikings 1 and 1. Bears 1 and 1.
    It’s a long season and I’m content to wait to see what happens down the road. But we know one thing for sure — Kirk Cousins and Mitch Trubisky are the 3rd and 4th best quarter backs in the NFC North. Rodgers is #1, Stafford is #2, Cousins is #3, and Trubisky is #4.

    >>><<<<<
    Believe us, we're 2-0, not 0-2 as your fairy tale scenario would indicate.

  43. My wife and I have been married 45 years. We yell at each other all the time. When are all the media types and fans going to realize that a head coach and QB yelling at each other is no big thing???

  44. I’m not a Packers fan but their defense is getting it done and their 2-0 in their division. And leading their division. And that’s the bottom line.

  45. “Can you imagine Brady, Brees, Mahomes, Watson, or Rivers doing that with their head coaches? Rodgers’ doesn’t respect LaFleur and is actively working to undermind him like he did with McCarthy.”

    Brady has yelled at McDaniels before. Competitors get frustrated and when you play in the league for 10+ years it’s bound to happen. It might be a result of the media constantly putting thoughts in his head that there is a rift between them. Way overhyped.

    First off I don’t believe you aren’t a packer fan and secondly if giving up 200 yards on the ground is getting it done I don’t like your other team.

  47. Rodgers ABSOLUTELY does not want to be coached. His reactions when LeFleur talks to him on the sidelines CLEARLY indicates he does not want to be coached. He wants to be left alone to do whatever he wants!
