Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur wants a tripping penalty that was not called during the third quarter of their game Sunday, October 3, 2021 at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wis. Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-17. Packers04 14

The Green Bay Packers are getting an early start this Sunday. They’ll kick off against the Cincinnati Bengals at noon on Sunday. That’s the first noon game of the years for Green Bay and head coach Matt LaFleur is definitely in a prime motivational mode about it.

On Thursday, LaFleur was talking to the media about how the team was preparing for the early game and his explanation was, well, a bit different.

When asked about how players needed to get right for the early afternoon game time, LaFleur said that the Packers “gotta wake up with their piss hot.”

Packers reporter Rob Demovsky followed up with the question that we were all then thinking. “How does one get their piss hot?” To which LaFleur replied, “It’s a mentality. It should naturally be hot, right?”

Good question, Matt. Not everyone seems to agree with that sentiment.

And apparently, this isn’t the first time LaFleur has gone the piss route to make a football metaphor.

Sure enough, before a recent game, LaFleur told reporters that “every time they pee, you want it to look clear.” What’s going on, Matt?

We just hope Packers players pee in a way that seems normal for them and perhaps the training and practice they’ve done will do more to prepare them for this Sunday’s football game. Otherwise, urine trouble.
