Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur went on “The Rich Eisen Show,” where he was asked about a multitude of things. Deebo Samuel made the list.
The offense was the first topic of discussion however, Eisen went onto say:
“The general sense, is the offense you’re running with Aaron Rodgers at the helm is not equipped to win games when it’s snowing and 10 degrees outside, and that you would be better off playing in a warmer climate.”
Matt Lafleur responded directly to the question annotating what they could do to not let past mistakes repeat themselves:
“I think everybody is probably a little emotional about the last game, and it still hurts, but I think one thing you always have to do is recognize your past and try to learn from every situation. You got to give the San Francisco 49ers a lot of credit. We knew that was going to be a tough game. They were such a great defense and a very physical football team.”
“I don’t think myself, more so than anybody, did their job to the standard that we like to do it at.”
The conversation switched to Deebo Samuel after that:
Eisen asked if Lafleur called his “familiar friend” in San Francisco following the news that Deebo wanted to be traded.
“I did not call Kyle Shanahan,” LaFleur responded laughingly. “I’ve been on the other end of that call before.”
Even though Lafleur said he didn’t call the 49ers, he wouldn’t respond to the question if Brian Gutekunst had made a call… in fact Lafleur unprompted said “I am not going to say Gutey didn’t make that call, but I did not.”
While it seems that Deebo Samuel is currently working on a long-term deal with the 49ers, the jury may not be out on a possible trade.
