It’s not unheard of to see an NFL quarterback and his head coach have a difference of opinion during a game. We saw that today between Aaron Rodgers and Matt LaFleur.
It happened after Rodgers had to throw a ball away under pressure late in the first half of today’s game against the Minnesota Vikings.
After the play, you could see Rodgers gesturing and pointing toward the sideline. He seemed to be voicing his displeasure with what had just transpired.
He and LaFleur had a dialogue at the end of this clip.

Listen, we know that Rodgers and Mike McCarthy had an acrimonious relationship by the end of the former coach’s tenure in Green Bay. Still, this is minor.
Stuff like this happens all the time in the NFL. It is when it happens repeatedly to one team that it becomes an issue.
Green Bay jumped out to an early 21-0 lead over Minnesota at home but now leads 21-16. The Vikings are back in the game and have gotten virtually nothing from quarterback Kirk Cousins before he threw a touchdown pass moments ago.
If the Packers lose the game, that will be much more concerning than whatever minor sideline beef Rodgers and LaFleur had.
