Matt Lafeur and Aaron Rodgers will continue to fight over whether or not Rodgers gets to call audibles. This will lead to Aaron undermining Lafeur's play calling and forcing nearly every pass to Davante Adams because the other receivers haven't earned his "trust". The defense will show glimpses of promise, but ultimately be a disappointment. Kevin King will miss an extended period of time while injured. Special teams will continue to suck and people will wonder why Mason Crosby still has a job. This will all happen on the road to being 8-8 (best case scenario) and finishing 3rd in the division.
LeFleur and Rodgers are not "fighting" over audibles. MLF's offense already has multiple checks built into each play call (think what Madden is). Don't buy into PFT's nonsense (Florio is a BIG vikings fan btw). Rodgers is an alpha, and needs to be challenged. LeFleur knows this, and he also knows that being able to mesh with Rodgers will be the difference between coaching 2 decades in the League or washing out in 3. Rodgers is also self aware enough to realize that he's not 27 and able to play hero ball every play. Give them time to gel.
Also, why is throwing to Adams over and over a bad thing? That's what should
I agree with you 1000% on Kevin King. I don't care if it was the 27th overall pick. Trading out of drafting TJ Watt and Ryan Ramcyzk (sic?), two all pro players from UW, in order to play smartest guy in the room was an all time bad draft pick. The fact that guys like Nagler, Wilde et al defend Ted in that pick and every offseason since the super bowl win in 2010-11, especially when Watt has more sacks than King has games played, is beyond asinine. But then again, the Packers only grant press credentials to bootlicker journalists. At some point you need to fish or cut bait with this guy. I hope they cut him, and I hope King proves me wrong with a different team (spoiler alert, he won't).
Since that debacle in Seattle in 2015, the only things I've wanted were Ted and Mike to be shown the door. The fact that neither one are decision makers for the Packers already makes this year a win in my opinion. It's going to take some time to flush the turds that Thompson put on this roster. It's also going to take some time to get rid of the entitled country club attitude that McCarthy let pervade the team in the last 4 years.
8-8 with four of those wins coming against the Bears and Vikings is the best case scenario for this team in my opinion. MLF gets one mulligan.
