Aaron Rodgers sees the Packers’ offense trending upward following Sunday’s 34-24 win against the Cowboys in Dallas.
Appearing on Brett Favre’s SiriusXM NFL broadcast Tuesday, Green Bay’s quarterback said that while they’re still trying to decide how to best utilize players “in this system,” Rodgers seems pleased with the progress made thus far under rookie head coach Matt LaFleur.
“I like the way we’re going and I’m not going to put a timetable on when everybody is going to feel totally comfortable,” Rodgers said, according to Pro Football Talk. “I’m just going to say that I’ve seen progress since Week 1 where we struggled and Week 2 we came out and played a little better. Three and then four, you know, we got the passing game going and a couple days ago we got the run game really rolling.”
Rodgers and LaFleur had clashed on team strategies ahead of the season, leading many to speculate as to how the Packers would perform after Mike McCarthy was fired amid a strained relationship with Rodgers. The seven-time Pro Bowler appears comfortable trusting the process as the offense continues to mature.
“I like the way we’re going, I really enjoy our team. I think it’s a bunch of really good guys,” Rodgers said. “I enjoy the staff and I’m not going to put any time tables, expectations on it, I’m just going to say that I’m really having a lot of fun right now and I think the guys are too and it’s kind of contagious and we’re going to embrace that feeling.”
The Packers may want to hold on to that euphoric feeling until Monday’s showdown against the Lions.
