Matt LaFleur on offense: That’s how you want it to look

Getty Images

After the Packers beat the Cowboys a couple of weeks ago, quarterback Aaron Rodgers said that he liked the direction the team’s offense was moving in as the season moved into its second month.

Things got even better on Sunday. Rodgers threw five touchdown passes and ran for another score in a 42-24 win. Rodgers posted the first perfect quarterback rating in his career and said after the game that it was “the most complete I’ve played” this season.

Head coach Matt LaFleur was pleased with how the entire group performed against Oakland.

“That’s how you want it to look,” LaFleur said after the game. “This is the National Football League, it’s not going to be like that every week, but again, our guys, especially coming off six days, I thought they were locked in. I think we’re starting to learn our players a little bit better, what they do really well. I think the communication’s been on point between coaches and players. Today it came together.”

The Packers put together Sunday’s effort without wide receiver Davante Adams and with fellow wideouts Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison at less than 100 percent. If they can get healthier this week, the Packers may be even more dangerous against the Chiefs next weekend.

    Uhm yeah, but aren’t you forgetting someone, Matt?
    Who?
    The refs, that’s who. Outstanding job there, simply outstanding.

  2. Purples before the season: Rodgers is a diva who will eat that rookie LaFleur alive! It’s like the Titanic all over again!

    Purple looking up at the Packers at 6-1: (Sniff)(Sob) They’re only winning because of the refs…I’m gonna go bite my pillow now!

    Your offense looks really good if you never, EVER, get called for holding.

    You would be a better poster if you said anything at all that wasn’t complaining about the officals.

  4. Oh, give it up, you bunch of crybabies. GB was gifted one last week, but not today. Are most of you under the age of 10?

  5. Didn’t their defense give up 500 yards. And didn’t Oakland fumble at the 1, fail to convert from the 1, and throw a pick in end zone? Seems to me they were 3 plays away from losing 45-42. This team is far from a SB contender.

  6. Can’t really blame viking fan for crying and whining have you ever been to Minnesota real is one of the most depressing pathetic places to live so go ahead and blame whoever queen fans we do have sympathy for you and your living conditions

  7. It was too obvious last week calling phantom penalties against the Packer’s opponent to give the Packers the win so today the approach was changed and next to no calls went against the Packers. Same result

  8. These crybabies have a lot of nerve picking on our refs. Those clowns have nothing else to hang their hat on so they mock our refs.

    Real men would go out and get their own instead of being envious of the Jones’s, Rodgers’ and Smiths.

    Lazy trolls complaining about their lot in life. Get off your butt and change your pathetic lot in life…stop expecting a handout.

  9. Well, if the tuck rule didn’t exist the Raiders would have won Super Bowl XXXVI.

    It’s just not fair.

  10. It’s quite clear that the Packers are the best team in the NFC North this year.

    The Vikings being 1-2 in the division is just further proof that the team currently in second is just a few tiers below the Packers.

    6-1, with a real possibility of winning the rest of their games. Probably winning the rest of the division games.

  11. Did Rodgers just call the the Raiders are trap game AFTER they win? Saying a game is a trap game is for fans not for players. Rodgers has no respect for any nfl players not named Rodgers.

    Yeah! And if the Packers had decided to go to the mall instead of Lambeau Field, it could have been 647-0!

    You’d be a respectable team if you didn’t have the league fixing divisional wins for you.

  14. You know at the rate this defense is performing Mike Pettine is going to get some serious HC offers at the end of the year, maybe he’s been a good coach all along and his first go around as an HC ended in failure because of the front office and owners of the Browns are awful?

    First congrats on your win. 2nd, can’t really tell how living in MN is pathetic. LASTLY, I have only seen whining this weekend as to why offensive players and entire stadiums of fans have booed calls played dead from officials when the NFC North Rodgers thrives on those plays while the refs let the play go on and give Rodgers a free play he relies on every week…

  17. Green Bay’s defense…much improved from years past.
    Their offense….starting to get the feel of a new system, even while banged up at receiver.
    Aaron Rodgers….5 TD’s by air, one on the ground and a perfect passed rating.

    Meanwhile, the Lions have no pass rush, the Bears offense has regressed and the Vikings compete for a trophy that says “Participant”
    Normalcy returns to the North.
    Now we can turn our attention to solving climate change.

  18. I got no dog in this hunt (Saints fan) but do Vikings fans cry like this every week the Packers win? They didn’t even play the Packers! That liberalsruineverything poster and the cheeseisfattening poster seem particularly disturbed. Get a life and go root for your team.

    Yes, but it gets noticably louder and less coherent as the Packers improve. What you need to understand is the Vikings are like the little brother that doesn’t have anywhere near the athletism of his big brother. All he does is shoot off his mouth and belittle whatever accomplishments his big brother achieves (4 Superbowl wins) knowing he could never come close (4 Superbowl losses)

  22. Hilarious that the same handful of Viking “fans” who have posted 3-4 times each in this story didn’t post nearly that much in the Viking stories today. And when they did, it was about the Packers lol. What a sad state of affairs when these “fans” are more interested in what our team is doing than what theirs is.

  23. And didn’t Oakland fumble at the 1, fail to convert from the 1, and throw a pick in end zone? Seems to me they were 3 plays away from losing 45-42.

    Lol….really? This is what you’re stooping to now? Pathetic.

  24. How does LaFleur make Aaron Rodgers happy? simple. eliminate all running plays from the Redzone turn them into screens or forward handoffs, so Rodgers will always get statistical credit…

    This QB’s insecurity and obsession with stats and personal praise is out of control.

  25. Your team with the rat faced coach won today
    —–
    Lol your coach is Mike Zimmer. You shouldn’t be talking about any other coach having a rat face because that dude should be on YouTube dragging a slice of pizza down the stairs.

  26. Your team with the rat faced coach won today with Teddy Bridgewater and Latavius Murray. You’re welcome….
    ___
    Teddy is 5-0 and playing great. I could not be happier for him. As a human being he is the anti-Rodgers

  27. The Packers are 6-1. While Packer fans are averaging 8 arrests and 30 ejections game day at lambeau. Did Packer fans improve their stats today?
    —-
    If you really want to talk about arrests, let’s talk about players. Since 2000, the Vikings have the 2nd most player arrests in the league with 50 (Denver has 51.) Green Bay has 26.

  28. The Packers are 6-1. While Packer fans are averaging 8 arrests and 30 ejections game day at lambeau. Did Packer fans improve their stats today?
    —–
    It warms my heart watching you have a meltdown after every Packer victory. It really does.

  29. You are what your record says you are. And 6-1 is impressive. But there are 9 games to go. And 6 of those for the Packers are on the road. Packer fans should wait until the next 5 weeks, and 4 on the road, play out. A 1 game lead in the division with 9 to play isn’t anything.

    Good game. Cheers to lion fans. they a great people and i cheer for the lions every game they do not play the vikings

    That was my first post today. In a Vikings story. And it had nothing to do with the Packers. Then the Packer trolls showed up, the ones you fellow Packer trolls act like they don’t exist. So then I did too.

  32. Besides the obvious off sides on the packers, and the obvious false start, the packers were perfect in the eyes of the refs…Never saw a o-line hold as much as they do on every pass play, and not a single flag.

  33. Its a shame, PFT is a great forum for fans to discuss all things football. Unfortunately, every mention of the Packers brings a deluge of halfwitted childish mocking comments by the same small number of repeat offenders. An ignore feature would be welcome.

  34. eliminate all running plays from the Redzone turn them into screens or forward handoffs, so Rodgers will always get statistical credit…

    This QB’s insecurity and obsession with stats and personal praise is out of control.

    And two weeks ago when Jones had 4 rushing td’s Viking fans said Rodgers couldn’t get it done anymore. You guys should just stop, it’s embarrassing for all of us.

    And here I spent the whole summer hearing that it was all about the failed audible struggle. Huh.

    Also I just love all the hand wringing and sobbing coming from the Barneys.
    Hilarious and Priceless. As always.

    ———————————-

    His defense just gave up 484 yards to a team without a wide receiver that would start anywhere else in the NFL. Any team that offers him a HC job is destined for 6-10.

  41. Probably the most complete win of the season. As Pack fans, we can sure enjoy 6-1, 3-0 in the division. But, the truth is the challenging part of the season lies straight ahead. The offense needle is pointing straight up, but the defense, sans pass rush and turnovers needs to step up their game. A daunting task, but if we can grab 3 wins in those next 5 weeks, the NFC North is their for Green Bay’s taking. It will be in their hands to make it happen.Go Pack!

    ….but not good enough for the Vikings, even though they could’ve kept him for a stack of old People magazines.

  43. Typical Packer fan way of thinking. Insulting all other fan bases or teams is ok just nobody say again bad about their beloved Packer or them. Biggest likes to dish it out but can’t take even a little bit of it fan base ever. In any sport.

    Really?
    So the 22nd ranked defense is worthy of this much praise?

  45. Ranking defenses by yards just shows how stupid you kids are.

    The Packers have given up a lot of points and yards in garbage time to teams like the Raiders, Vikings, Cowboys, and Broncos.

    If Brady had Rodgers’ arm, Brady would have 10 SBs.
    —————————–

    You’re actually probably right. But by that same logic, if Rodgers had Brady’s defenses and coaches, he would have more than 10 SBs.

  47. It was the Raiders, and keep in mind Most of your 2nd half games are on the road. You won’t have home field and the refs on your side, just the refs.

  48. This is a good win for the Packers. It will help them tremendously on the road in the upcoming weeks. They already have 2 road wins (at Chicago and at Dallas). There is still a lot of talk about the refs. Whatever. Every team has penalties that are not called or calls that go their way, it’s football, get over it. I just wonder what you guys used to do before replay? As for the Barneys, they are what they are and will never change. That’s their problem not mine. I support my Packers when they win and when they lose, that’s what true fans do. I don’t need to troll them. What matters is that the Packers have a chance to win every week. I almost wish they would go to robotic refs but then, the whiners would find something about that to complain about. Oh well, I’m just happy to be a Packer fan. Go Pack!

    Well you better alert the NFL and the broadcast networks, because when you watch a game the stats that they use come from the NFL.

    But the real point is, GBs defense is ranked 26th and are not as good as packer fans and the media think. But they are 6-1 so congrats.

  50. This offense is as usual, Oh AR save our ass again. An eye popping total of 60 yds running. There’s nothing modern or balanced about it,

    Running from other NFC games yesterday:

    Cowboys – 189
    Vikes – 166
    Saints – 151
    Hawks – 105

    Good luck with that.

  51. Crickets from those who said Rodgers and his new head coach would never mesh. Crickets from those who said Rodgers ego wouldn’t allow the Packers to win. Crickets from those who said he was washed up. 6-1 without their best wr and safety. Crickets are great!

  52. I remain delighted the Packers already beat the Vikings. It was way too soon for a new Packer offense to play them, but it worked out. The Vikings are pretty dang good, and the Packers seem to be getting better every week. The early victory over the Vikings has caused their trolls’ brains to overheat. They really expected to be busting their buttons by now, and some are, but the Vikings are still in the Packers’ rearview mirror, aren’t they? That can’t be fun if you’re a fight-picking troll! Without ammunition all they’ve got is their old standby, insults and putdowns.

    “When debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.”

  53. Rodgers is now among leading rushing quarterbacks with 3,000 yards or more, and also broke Staubach’s NFL record for rushing TD’s by a quarterback. He tops it all off by pitching a “perfect game!”

    Yup, he’s washed up. He’s all done.

    The Raiders had zero problem moving the football including 155 yards on the ground.

    Must have been garbage time….

  56. LOL. Did they wind the game is the real stat here. Yards doesn’t mean squat for winning a game; Points scored against is what counts. Even that doesn’t reflect the real game as many of the points scored against the Packers has indeed been in garbage time. Find another excuse beside that and the refs.

  57. The point of pointing this all out was the post saying Mike Pettine was doing a great job as DC in GB and was going to be getting a head coaching job again because of it.

    155 yards on the ground says otherwise.
