The two teams held joint practices in Green Bay on Monday and Tuesday, and Rodgers was clearly not pleased, telling reporters,"I wouldn't Arizona State Sun Devils Jersey Sale  mind if they didn't do it for another 14 years," and "it's out of my control."

Rodgers also criticized certain drills, saying "I don't think doing live special teams drills is very smart."

The remarks were quickly construed by some NFL observers and Packers fans as an early warning sign in the relationship between the franchise quarterback and the Caleb Swanigan Jersey  first-year head coach. But anyone looking forLaFleur to add to the drama by poking back at Rodgers will be disappointed.

"I always TJ Gibbs Jr. Jersey  respect his opinion, just like I do all our players. But I still think it was beneficial for us.

The one thing that I will comment on that I thought that he was dead right on was when you look at the kickoff, they ramped up their intensity level and we didnt match it, LaFleur said. It looked a little, we got it taken to us a little bit. Thats something moving forward I probably wouldnt do again is those  Khwan Fore Jersey full covered kickoff drills.
