Ahead of week 3 NFL it looks like the Aaron Rodgers exchange between him and his head coach is being downplayed. For good reason Aaron Rodgers does not want to rock the boat.
It only took two games for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and head coach Matt LaFleur to get in to their first heated Aaron Rodgers exchange on the sidelines. The exchange occurred when Rodgers came off the field after the final possession of the first half, a three-and-out that ended with a Rodgers throwaway on third-and-16.
“It was about the look on defense,” Rodgers said. “I was actually kind of surprised that he was coming over to talk about that, but we got it all sorted out over there on the sideline. It actually wasn’t a big deal. … We’re a little animated at times. I can’t say we were yelling how much we love each other, but we definitely weren’t MF-ing each other or anything. It was talking about the look there and getting on the same page.”
What Happened in Aaron Rodgers Exchange
After the first drive of the second half, which resulted in a fumble, LaFleur sat next to Rodgers on the bench while the Packers’ defense was on the field. Rodgers said he couldn’t remember many times when his head coach sat next to him on the bench while the game was going on.
“It’s different,” he said, noting that interim coach Joe Philbin did it a couple of times last year in the final four games after Mike McCarthy was fired.

“It’s definitely helpful, when he’s bouncing stuff off — ‘Do you like this? Do you like that? Do you want to start with this? You want to get to this?'” Rodgers added. “Obviously I did that with Mike a bunch, I’d kind of go to over where he was at, but Matt likes to get cozy on the bench.”
For his part, LaFleur also tried to downplay the Aaron Rodgers exchange going into Week 3 NFL.
“That’s just two competitive guys, and I’m sure it’s not going to be the last one we have,” LaFleur said. “But you know, just competitors, heat of the moment, and it is what it is. I would much rather have that than anything else because you want guys that are extreme competitors, and that’s what he is.”
