Jordan Love's first NFL start a reminder of the rarity of a new Packers starting quarterback

  Jordan Love's first NFL start a reminder of the rarity of a new Packers starting quarterback The Packers have had more stability at quarterback than any other team has for the last 30 years.And let's not forget the Jets, who have used a variety of stopgap veterans and young, potential-packed starters over the last couple of decades.

“ That ' s embarrassing ,” LaFleur said after the Packers ' 34-31 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. “Ultimately everything falls on me. I have to make sure that doesn't happen because that cannot happen coming off a stopped-clock situation. Can't happen anytime, but especially when you have a The Packers ' offense finished with five of the eight penalties .

But before intermission, the Packers ' offense committed three

Packers coach Matt LaFleur said the Saints “absolutely embarrassed ” Green Bay. That ’ s not the kind of assessment anyone wants to land on in Week 1, coming out of a noisy offseason. “We played bad — I played bad,” Rodgers said in his postgame news conference. “Uncharacteristic of how we’ve practiced in training camp [and] obviously how I’ve played over the years. This is hopefully an outlier moving forward.” Aaron Rodgers and the Packers had a nightmare of a start to the 2021 NFL season on Sunday.

MINNEAPOLIS — Matt LaFleur was practically disgusted. The Green Bay Packers had been caught with 12 men on the field on defense, late in the fourth quarter of a tied game.

“That's embarrassing,” LaFleur said after the Packers' 34-31 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. “Ultimately everything falls on me. I have to make sure that doesn't happen because that cannot happen coming off a stopped-clock situation. Can't happen anytime, but especially when you have a … stopped-ball situation and you've got 12. That's just – it’s inexcusable.”

Case study of young QBs: Over-the-top protection of Jordan Love vs. unfair criticism of Justin Fields

  Case study of young QBs: Over-the-top protection of Jordan Love vs. unfair criticism of Justin Fields When it comes to the performance of an NFL player, let alone an entire NFL team, comments made in postgame media conferences are unlikely to be of much significance. What a coach tells a player, or a team, in private matters more. That said, this is the NFL, a game of proverbial inches where control freak coaches try to seize every small advantage they can in every facet of the job. Controlling the noise is one of them.

It' s something that 49ers fans can point back to that gives them confidence heading into this weekend, but Packers head coach Matt LaFleur feels like his team is much different than it was in late November. "I don't want to give too much information away. The 49ers' divisional-round 27-10 victory over the Minnesota Vikings was much more impressive than the Packers ' 28-23 win over the Seattle Seahawks, but LaFleur is confident his Packers are ready to rewrite what happened in November. "You always want to learn from past mistakes and performance whether it' s good or bad," LaFleur said.

Check that, those were the top three winning percentages. Green Bay’s Matt LaFleur has coached just 14 divisional games since taking over the Packers in 2019. LaFleur is a remarkable 13-1, though, in those games and his .929 winning percentage dwarfs the legendary coaches that have passed through this rugged division. LaFleur will look to add to his divisional dominance when the Packers (8-2) travel to Minnesota (4-5) Sunday at noon. “I think it’s a credit to everybody in this building, from the top down,” LaFleur said. “ That ’ s a credit to (team president) Mark (Murphy) and (executive vice

The 12-men-on-the-field penalty was just the last of many flags, though. The Packers committed more penalties in this game than they had all season. Green Bay drew eight flags for 92 yards, surpassing its previous high of seven for 87 yards in a win against the San Francisco 49ers.

The Packers' offense finished with five of the eight penalties. The offense found more sync in the second half, putting up 21 points as opposed to 10 points in the first. And the two latter offensive flags were both nullified with touchdowns. But before intermission, the Packers' offense committed three penalties, all procedural, that doomed drives.

OPINION: Even in spoiled return, Cam Newton sparks hope for Carolina Panthers

The first, a false start, began with quarterback Aaron Rodgers arguing with an official over the call and ended with a punt on the drive. The second time, Green Bay actually moved downfield after the false start, but stalled in the red zone and missed a field goal.

NFL chief medical officer pushes back on Aaron Rodgers' claim that some COVID-19 protocols are 'not based in science'

  NFL chief medical officer pushes back on Aaron Rodgers' claim that some COVID-19 protocols are 'not based in science' Allen Sills said the NFL's COVID-19 protocols are "always based on science" despite Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' claim to the contrary.“We've been very consistent,” Sills told reporters during a conference call on Wednesday. “First of all, these are things that we decided collectively with the players association (NFLPA). They're always based on science. The science that at best we understand for public health, but also our own data. We are constantly looking at our own data in every way possible, to see where we might still be vulnerable and what parts of our protocols we think are particularly effective.

Rookie head coach Matt LaFleur suffered his first loss with the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night. The 34-27 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles wasn't your run-of-the-mill game, however. The matchup between NFC contenders was marred by multiple pass interference controversies — one that gave the Eagles a LaFleur threw the red flag during the third quarter of Thursday' s game after what he saw as defensive pass interference was not called on the field. Eagles cornerback Avonte Maddox pushed against the face of Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling with seemingly no intention of

And that ' s why he's now the DC for the Dallas Cowboys and not an NFL HC. Lmao I got downvoted in the Eagles sub for saying Lefluer is a huge upgrade over McCarthy. Matt Lafleur has five more wins in his first two seasons as head coach than the New York Jets have in the past LaFleur seems like a great coach . That being said, definitely doesn't hurt to have one of the greatest QBs of all time.

“The first drive of the game, to go out and get seven would have been great,” said Rodgers before explaining his frustration with the call. “We came back and it looked like there was (pass interference committed) against Marquez (Valdes-Scantling). And that would have been a 10-yard gain. Then we had to settle for a 54-yard field goal (on the second drive). So I think that was definitely frustrating.”

The third flag put Green Bay behind the chains on the first play and led to a three-and-out.

“We were hurting ourselves in the first half a lot with penalties, putting ourselves in first and long, second and really long situations,” wide receiver Davante Adams said. “It becomes tough when you play a team like that with a really good defense at home. We shot ourselves in the foot a little bit with some self-infliction early.”

On defense, three penalties were enough to derail the score. Two came on one drive, each time giving the Vikings a fresh set of downs. The first was a defensive pass interference, moving the Vikings to just outside the red zone. After a stout defensive stand looked to have Minnesota stopped on third and five and given the Packers the ball – thanks to a Darnell Savage interception – a penalty marker swung the momentum pendulum back the other way.

Packers head coach Matt LaFleur is choosing to not add to the conversation. Matt LaFleur when asked about why Aaron Rodgers described his vaccination status this summer as "immunized" said It doesn't help that an unmasked Rodgers was shown all over social media at a team Halloween party.

Rookie Green Bay Packers coach Matt LaFleur thought he saw a foul on the play and challenged the ruling on the field seeking an offensive pass interference call on Gabriel. Remember, it’ s not just pass interference calls that are eligible for review, but plays where officials miss a blatant pass interference penalty , as well. What was LaFleur thinking? Gabriel brushed Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander with his left hand while jockeying for separation on a curl route. It was minimal contact that no neutral observer would deem pass interference, much less a blatant call that meets the standards of being

Roughing the passer on Kingsley Keke, in his first game back after three weeks in the concussion protocol, wiped out the interception and put Minnesota at goal-to-go. Three plays later, quarterback Kirk Cousins hit Adam Thielen for the touchdown.

On what would become the final drive of the day, the defense started off with the aforementioned 12-men on the field call. After a kerfuffle in which the defense looked to have made up for the call with an interception that was then overturned, Cousins and Justin Jefferson took advantage of the short second and 5 off the penalty and converted a first down to head into the two-minute warning. From there, the Vikings milked the clock and kicked the game-winning field goal.
