Packers coach Matt LaFleur was not happy after his team dropped to 4-7 with a 27-17 loss to the Titans on Thursday night.

In a brief interview with the Packers’ YouTube channel, LaFleur used the words “extremely disappointing” three different times to describe his feelings.

“They whipped us in pretty much every phase,” LaFleur said. “We’re disappointed. Give them credit. We didn’t complement each other enough. It’s obviously extremely disappointing, especially coming off a few days ago. To come back and play like that is extremely disappointing.”

LaFleur said he doesn’t even have the words to describe how frustrated he is with how this season has gone.

“I don’t think any of us thought we’d be in this spot, and we are,” LaFleur said. “To have seven losses at this point of the season is extremely disappointing.”

  1. Maybe LaFleur should spend more time coaching during the game rather than acting like a cheerleader on the sidelines. Waiving his hands at the crowd to get them to yell louder when opposing team has third or fourth down. He looks foolish doing that.

  2. The only reason the Vikings are good is because the Packers, Bears and Lions all suck.

  3. When you give away 98% of your payroll to ONE guy that’s what ya get. You won’t have to worry about it much longer because I’m sure you’ll be fired in January.

  4. Really Matt?
    Its extremely disappointing to hear that’s all you have to say, Matt!
    How about something like “ah yeah, we’re absolutely terrible on defense despite a bucket full of high draft picks and FAs. Joe Barry has to go.”

  5. Terrible defense all season, a quarterback that’s up and down all season, mostly down, special teams that have been consistently bad all year and just plain bad coaching, game planning, motivating, looks exactly like Lindy infante is the head coach all over again.

  6. Time for this team and management to reevaluate how this team is “run”. It’s starts at the top all the way down. President Mark Murphy, Gm Gute, Head Coach MLF, Off and Def coordinators … everybody. This year has been a massive failure which shouldn’t be overlooked. Over-reaction will come into question but there are underlying reasons for this meltdown from what was supposed to be a top contending team.

  7. Years and years and years of ignoring skilled position players early in the draft has finally caught up to them. They leaned on Rodgers way too much, believing he could turn water into wine with any WR they put out there, and now they’re being proven wrong.

  8. Since Amazon’s hostile take over of the thursday games i haven’t seen a one but who is surprised by this i’m sure the hit Rodgers a lot ( which is how you beat him he’s old and hates being hit ) Titians are a physical team who don’t play games like Jerrys soft team does.

  9. Soooooooooon we need to let Love play one game is not enough he needs to start at least the last 4
    12 will whine and complain as usual but so what he’s the past not the future.

  10. It seems like fans from all the other NFL teams, and even some from my own, are celebrating my failures. I don’t know why.

  11. Are you going to release arrogant Rodgers because he sucks or was it his call to release any player?

  12. What happen to your standard and expectations like Kylin? Are you going to release Rodgers? He sucks

  13. The defense is pretty suspect despite investing 90% of your draft capital on that side over the last few years. While neglecting the offense.

    I’m not a fan of owners and it’s cool the Packers don’t have a know nothing billionaire trying to call shots, but damn. They have let mediocrity take root in the front office and coaching staff. Lé Fluér is a joke

  14. What happen to your standard and expectations like Kylin?

    LaFraud is lying as usual. Murf the Surf, Gutman and La Fraud have been riding the AR / DA train the last 3 yrs. Now that the train has gone off the tracks they’re being exposed for the incompetent folks they are. Now you can add Joe Bob to the dust bin that needs to get emptied.

  15. This team is limp. Rodgers was a beast the last 2 years, but this year he isn’t even average. Excuses are like losses. Everyone has them except champions.

  16. What isn’t surprising, apparently to everyone but Gutey and a couple cheeser diehards, is that the Pack went into the season without sufficient WR talent. Only if Rodgers was playing at MVP levels and the defense played lights out, could that deficiency be overcome.
    Whether its the thumb injury, age or indifference, Rodgers is playing subpar. The biggest surprise is the defense, which has been lousy on all levels (particularly with Gary now out). The Pack fan joy last week was cute, but last night was yet one of 7 reality checks.

    Rogers has ZERO playoff wins against the titans….ZERO. class dismissed!
    ————————————
    Rodgers has never played the Titans in the playoffs. #schooled

  18. Supercharger nails it here:

    “Years and years and years of ignoring skilled position players early in the draft has finally caught up to them. They leaned on Rodgers way too much, believing he could turn water into wine with any WR they put out there, and now they’re being proven wrong.”

    The passing game is now intrinsic to success in the NFL. If you don’t have at least one or two guys that can consistently run correct routes and create separation, your offense is cooked. The only alternative is to play the ground and pound game (which the Packers tried in Buffalo) but the caveat is that you’ve got to have a killer defense for that offensive approach to work. The Packers have an average defense at best.

    Rodgers missed some throws last night, yes. Watson seems to have begun emerging in the past 10 days. But otherwise, Rodgers has nobody he can count on to get separation and that’s the death knell for a modern NFL offense no matter who is playing quarterback.

  19. The offense is really bad, but they could win ugly.

    The defense is giving them no chance whatsoever.

  20. Can’t hide behind Rodgers anymore. McCarthy 2.0. And I’m a huge Packer fan.
    ===========

    Proven, creative scheme, and the offense had been fantastic prior to this year.

    I think he could snap the team out of this if the defense could stop anyone.

  21. As a fan for 30 years! This is part of the equation! First, start playing better in in the preseason! The Packers always keep all their starters on the bench and they don’t have any cohesion.Come to camp in shape! Too many hamstring injuries etc. This crap like Bahktiari isn’t able to practice. We’re resting his knee? If you can’t play then go away! Every week they mix up the Online like a deck of cards! Injuries happen to every team! If Rodgers wants to play golf and not show for mini camp then tell him see ya! Get an aggressive DC. Little things separate the good from bad!

  22. When you give away 98% of your payroll to ONE guy that’s what ya get.

    You’re only off by 85%……………

  23. Years and years and years of ignoring skilled position players early in the draft has finally caught up to them.

    7 1st rounders on the D.

    Why can’t tehy carry this team?

  24. It’s called ‘smash-mouthed football’.

    Henry had less than 90 yards rushing.
    It’s called no pressure on the QB and the worst zone pass defense in football.

    This guy’s a fraud. Without Rodgers he’s Rich Kotite.
    Oh puh-leaze! So, the guy who’s won 39-games in the preceding 3-seasons is Rich Kotite? Yes, all those wins were because he had good QB play from Rodgers, no good coaching, no other good players on the team, nothing. I suppose the defending world champion Rams are also complete frauds?? No, it’s a team game. The Packers are bad this year for a variety of reasons. Coaching is high on the list. Rodgers thumb is also clearly not right, and of course, inevitably he is showing some age. The bigger puzzle and disappointment is the defense. This group had/has the talent to be dominant, but they’ve come nowhere near showing it. Their two best players, Kenny Clark and Jaire Alexander are both having bad years, at least by their standard and their other best player Rashan Gary is out for the year. And, oh yeah, Joe Barry is a clown who will be unemployed on or about January 10-11. That’s not to say it’s all his fault. Much blame does lay with LaFleur,….but calling him Rich Kotite is comical fan over-the-top hyperbole.

    —————————————————————————-
    🙄 Perhaps the Vikings are good, because they are good? Watch the game from last week, a “bad” team doesn’t play like that.

  27. Translation: I failed to have my team prepared to play, probably because our QB spent the summer doing drugs instead of helping his teammates be better and prepared to play in the NFL.

  28. Aaron is planning for a longer offseason and spend more time out of the country maybe hallucinating just bit.

  29. What is really disappointing is the glee some are taking at the Packers being in a slump. I am a fan of players and football is just better when Rodgers and Brady are playing at a high level. Be better people.

    To the so-called Packers fans complaining. Stop it. You have had top quality quarterback play for DECADES. One thing is certain…if it can be corrected…it will be corrected. The Packers model is to make the playoffs AT LEAST to remain relevant. The front office will fix this. In the meanwhile, stop behaving like petulant children. No one can win all the time.

    I didn’t see them as a legit Super Bowl contender.

    But there is no acceptable or logical reason they should be a 5 or 6-win team.

  31. So Green Bay Packers are “quietly quitting?” or is just Rodgers? Both? Zonks!! Rodgers will soon be able to solve mysteries with a dog and a van…coming to a steaming platform in January. You can discount double check it!!

    Pack it all up. No playoffs for you.
    =========================
    Broncos fans have zero room to talk. They’ve are one of only two teams bad enough to lose to the Raiders.

  33. Packers are slowly sliding into mediocrity as Rodgers skill set diminishes and Love ain’t the guy. They’ll join the other teams in that years long search for another franchise QB…

  34. As much as I dislike Rodgers, most of the blame should be on LaFleur.

    The team is not playing as a unit. They look like they’ve barely played together. The Have a good QB, good receivers, a good RB….but they are all on different pages.

  35. “Rogers has ZERO playoff wins against the titans….ZERO. class dismissed!”

    Odd comment considering the Packers never played the Titans in the playoffs. And that it could only happen in a Superbowl.
