Matt LaFleur has enjoyed a ton of success since he became the Green Bay Packers head coach in 2019.
He has been to the playoffs in all of those years while his offense is led by four-time MVP Aaron Rodgers.
The Packers have also won 13 games in each of his three seasons and have reached the NFC Championship Game twice.
However, they could be facing a grave concern after trading Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders.
They don’t have a wideout as explosive as him, though they signed Sammy Watkins to a one-year deal.
Allen Lazard could also have a breakout season while rookie Christian Watson could be a revelation.
Therefore, LaFleur doesn’t have any glaring concerns leading into training camp.
For that reason, he is venting his frustration in a comical manner.
Matt LaFleur is actually mad that the JUGS machine sucked with punts yesterday.
He said he’ll pay any price for a new one.
“I have never seen anything like that. That was ridiculous … It was awful. You couldn’t get the ball to turn over. It was damn near impossible to catch.”

If only the JUGS machine were a real person, the Packers might have signed him to a contract already.
Gearing Up For Another Playoff Appearance
This time around, LaFleur and the Packers would like to compete in the Super Bowl.
Even Rodgers would like to add another ring to elevate his legacy.
The JUGS machine will help them become better at special teams which has been their problem last season.
A dose of help from that unit could get Green Bay over the hump and claim their fifth Super Bowl victory.
