Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur definitely doesn’t like losing. However, in the 2023 season, it isn’t all about putting up wins. While coming out victorious is always a plus, this year is about seeing growth in a lot of young players like Jordan Love. After the game, LaFleur praised the team for their improvement.
Matt LaFleur expressed lot of positives, lot of growth, from his young team. Pleased how #Packers competed 4 quarters on road vs. good opponent. Indicated he sees light at end of the tunnel: “I’m confident if we continue with this that we will end up on the other side of this.”

Green Bay Packers Matt LaFleur Preaches Positives From Week 10
Pittsburgh is not an easy environment to play in and the young team played well. Love looked really good at times and for the most part, they bottled up TJ Watt. The defense, without Jaire Alexander, held their own in the passing game. A couple of the touchdown throws were absolute dimes and the team scored 13 points in the first half. LaFleur is confident that if they keep this up, victories will come. “I’m confident if we continue with this that we will end up on the other side of this,” LaFleur said. There was a lot to like in this game, especially from Love.
Jordan Love Looked Good
While every player is being evaluated, the most important is Jordan Love. While he definitely had his bad moments today, overall he looked a lot better. For a good chunk of the season, the offense looked asleep and disjointed. An opening-drive touchdown that had a couple of great third-down conversions is exactly what Packers fans want to see. Throughout the day, the Packers were able to move the ball effectively. Drops, penalties, and questionable trick play calling were still there but this game is a step in the right direction.
Whatever Matt LaFleur is doing during the week, it is working for this young Green Bay Packers team. The next three games are tough with the Chargers, Lions, and Chiefs on the schedule. If the team can keep showing improvement, the record this year won’t matter and it will lay the groundwork for seasons to come.
