Packers coach Matt LaFleur takes savage shot back at Falcons coach Arthur Smith
LaFleur is entering Year 3 with the Packers, while Smith will be in his first year as head coach of the Falcons.
On Tuesday, Smith took a hilarious shot at LaFleur, noting that he doesn’t spend an hour looking in the mirror before games to get ready like LaFleur does. It of course was a joke as the two are pretty close friends, but it provided some great entertainment nonetheless.
Wednesday, the Packers head coach got his turn in front of the microphone and did not disappoint:

LaFleur from the clouds!
Noting that Smith was apparently using “Just For Men” on his hair while pointing out his own hair by removing his hat was quite the uppercut from the Packers coach. Pouring salt into the wound by mentioning Smith is also younger while insinuating his own hair looks better was the true dagger from LaFleur.
It’s a shame that the Packers and Falcons won’t be meeting up in the regular season, but one can dream and hope for a playoff matchup now.
The Falcons are in a bit of a retooling process with a new coach in Smith and after trading Julio Jones to the Titans in the offseason.
Green Bay had plenty of drama in the offseason but now seem settled in with Aaron Rodgers for the 2021 season and have a legitimate shot to win the whole thing.
