Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is pretty hyped about the potential of the 2018 season.
Rodgers walked around and talked to former teammate James Jones, now with NFL Network, and discussed a variety of subjects on Friday after practice.
Among them were his thoughts on the Packers’ coordinators, which were somewhat interesting.
“I don’t think we’ve ever had as strong of group of coordinators as a whole. We have Mike Pettine, who’s been a head coach on defense and is an incredible leader and orator in front of the room. You’ve got Joe Philbin, who has been a head coach in the league, who can control the room. And you’ve got Ron Zook, who was a college coach for years and can control a room. We’ve got four head coaches on our staff. There’s a different mindset this year and a different feel to the team.”
Yes, Philbin went on to be a head coach after he left the Packers — for the Miami Dolphins. However, the Packers did have another former head coach in the building as recently as last year.
Dom, da-Dom, Dom Dom.
Yes, Dom Capers.
We’ve heard things about how defensive players didn’t necessarily think much about Capers. Apparently, the feeling extended to the offense.
And what of former offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett, who is now the receivers coach of the Oakland Raiders? We may as well assume he couldn’t command a room.
Rodgers also talked about how he’d like to be remembered and yes, he does care about championships.
“It’s about championships. I’ve got one. My time is not going to last forever. I’d like to get at least another one.”
Here’s Rodgers opining on a number of things with our main man James Jones.
