Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers are not having a great season so far this year with just a 3-5 record through eight games. The team started out 3-1 but is in the midst of an embarrassing four-game losing streak. While many things are contributing to the struggles, Packers head coach Matt LaFleur revealed one big one: a lack of discipline.

During his press conference after Sunday night’s 27-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills, Matt LaFleur insisted that the team needs to be more disciplined, saying that the Packers are “getting killed with penalties.”

“Every area we’ve gotta improve on. Many things. I think there’s also just the discipline aspect,” LaFleur said after the game. “We’re getting killed with penalties and it’s taking points off the board. It’s extending drives. When it gets chippy, you gotta keep your poise. We can’t be losing players to personal fouls – getting in a shoving match on the sideline. That was disappointing.”

LeFleur seems to be referring to rookie linebacker Quay Walker, who was ejected after drawing a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty Bills practice squad tight end Zach Davidson, who was inactive on the sideline.

While this is one area where the Packers can certainly improve, it’s safe to say that there are plenty of ways the team is struggling this season, this is just one of them.
