Matt LeFleur has coached the Green Bay Packers to identical 13-3 records in his first two seasons. Had the 2021 NFL season ended today, it would have been three in a row, but this season is a 17-game season, so the highest record would be 14-3. Consistent and effective. Sounds suitable for his first Coach of the Year award.
After all the drama surrounding the Packers through the regular and offseason, specifically Aaron Rodgers, LeFleur has kept the Green and Gold in contention and now has them once again locked as the No. 1 seed in the NFC. Once again, the road to the Super Bowl goes through the Frozen Tundra.
However, LeFleur’s only blemish is that he has not won an NFC Championship, either at home or on the road, and Rodgers has not won a conference title since 2010. This may be the year that trend is reversed.
But time will tell if Green Bay ends up playing for their legendary head coach’s trophy in Los Angeles.
