#FriendGoals: Aaron Rodgers-Matt LaFleur 2.0 opens new possibilities By Rob Demovsky - September 10th, 2020
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Rodgers is about to begin his 16th NFL season. He’s about to start his 175th pro game, his 193rd if you count playoffs. He’s on his third head coach, sixth offensive coordinator and sixth quarterbacks coach.
There’s little he hasn't seen on a football field or in a film room.
Except he has never had a second-year head coach since he’s been the Green Bay Packers’ starting quarterback. Mike Sherman was fired after Rodgers’ rookie season of 2005. Mike McCarthy’s second-year jump came with Brett Favre as the starter and Rodgers as the backup for a third straight season.
“It will be a big deal,” former NFL quarterback and current ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky said. “The analogy that I like to use is like when somebody gets LASIK surgery. All of a sudden you go from glasses to LASIK surgery, you see things more clearly now and understand them at such a higher level."
