How Packers coach Matt LaFleur is doing what other first-year coaches haven't: Win
6:00 AM ET Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- No one wants to be on what Blake Martinez called "The Bad Tape."
Sometimes, however, the Green Bay Packers linebacker knows it’s coming. And as much as he wants to sink lower into his chair in the team meeting room, he knows he has to sit tall and take it.
"Every single time you go in there, everybody’s talking about it, everybody’s saying, ‘Oh no, I might be on 'The Bad Tape,’" Martinez said. "It’s just the concept of [not] letting each other down."
It happens in every team meeting -- whether it’s after a practice, a walk-through or a game. First-year coach Matt LaFleur shows two films. "The Good Tape" is always played first. Then comes "The Bad Tape."
"He’ll make sure he puts every single thing on there that could potentially lose us games," Martinez said.

Really good read. I like that he is holding everyone accountable.

Very happy that the article states that 12 is held accountable in front of the team as well. Maybe this is why he has been hitting his checkdowns the last couple of weeks.

If "The Bad Tape" sometimes gets long, it’s because LaFleur lets little go unnoticed. And no one -- not even quarterback Aaron Rodgers -- gets an exemption.
"Whatever we’re doing he’s making sure we’re doing it right, whether it’s running off the field, whether it’s warming up, whether it’s breaking the huddle -- doing all those little things that are going to count in the game and focusing on it every single day," Martinez said. "He points it out, he’s praising it. It could be something as little as making sure your shoes are tied when you’re walking out there. It’s been awesome to have a coach like that and hold everybody accountable. It doesn’t matter if No. 12 is doing it or a practice-squad guy."

I really like this. For the longest time I felt that we never came off as a complete team where we seemed to have cliques. It really feels that LaFleur is creating a team concept of accountability which makes for better buy-in when everyone is held to the same standard.
I am not sure who the bad apples were (I have my guesses) but the D looks so tight and their closeness to Pettine that it makes me so excited as to how good they can be. Hoping the O can get to that level at one point.
