Broadly speaking, it's hard to view Packers coach Matt LaFleur and quarterback Aaron Rodgers's tenure together as anything other than a success.
In four years with Rodgers, LaFleur coached Green Bay to a 47–19 record, good for a winning percentage of .712. That is the fifth-highest percentage in NFL history; the four coaches ahead of LaFleur—Guy Chamberlin, John Madden, Vince Lombardi and George Allen—are all in the Hall of Fame.
LaFleur, meanwhile, helped Rodgers rejuvenate his career. The quarterback won MVP awards in 2020 and ’21, averaging 36 touchdowns and seven interceptions per 17 games.
Despite this, the Packers never won or even made the Super Bowl during this time, leaving LaFleur with regrets as Rodgers stands on the cusp of a trade to the Jets.
“I’ve got nothing but love and appreciation for what Aaron has done for so many in our organization," LaFleur told reporters Tuesday morning, while conceding that their lack of a breakthrough on the game's biggest stage was "ultimately disappointing."
Rodgers slipped slightly in 2022, throwing 26 touchdowns against 12 interceptions in Green Bay's first losing season since 2018.
