There has been a lot made of Aaron Rodgers and his relationship with Mike McCarthy and the Green Bay Packers front office and the latest article by Tyler Dunne of Bleacher Report gives a better glimpse on how much pull Rodgers now has with the organization.

One of the most interesting paragraphs in the article involves when Rodgers found out Matt LaFleur was going to be the next coach of the Packers, and that Rodgers wasn't asked, rather he was told that's who it was going to be.

“Right before the Packers announced LaFleur as their new head coach, the source close to the team says Murphy called Rodgers to tell him who they were going with. He didn't ask for permission—he told him who the choice was. There was a brief pause on the other end of the phone before Rodgers eventually spoke. Murphy made it clear that Rodgers would need to accept coaching. “Don't be the problem,” he told him. “Don't be the problem.”

Rodgers has liked to be in control and many believed that the team would hire someone that Rodgers picked so he could continue to run the team, but it's clear with this hire that they want Rodgers to be coached.

Over the years, Rodgers has preferred to surround himself with “Yes men,” multiple sources say. That's why many thought Murphy would hire a “Yes man” to be the next head coach……Instead, Murphy made it clear to Rodgers that the organization was behind LaFleur.

The Packers' brass did not feel the need to get Rodgers' approval on whomever it hired. Murphy wanted a young coach who'd challenge the entire team, not just the quarterback.

Even though Aaron Rodgers didn't get a say in who would be the next coach, it's most important that LaFleur and Rodgers have a good relationship. McCarthy and Rodgers didn't have that and it put a big damper on the team the last few years.
