Matt LaFleur wants ‘hot piss’ from Packers players vs. Bengals
Entering Week 5, the Packers have played two primetime games and two late afternoon kickoffs. Against the Cincinnati Bengals this time around, it will be a 1pm local kick time in Cincinnati. As a result, LaFleur now wants “hot piss” from his players.
Matt LaFleur on Packers players preparing for their first noon game of the year:
“They gotta wake up with their piss hot.”@RobDemovsky: “How does one get their piss hot?”
LaFleur: “It’s a mentality.”

He clarified that this is just a mentality but it’s still a heck of a line from the Packers’ coach.
Green Bay is sitting at 3-1, as are the Bengals and this game could be a real indicator in seeing how good Cincinnati might actually be this year. Most expected and still expect the Packers to be a top player in the NFC but, it’s the Bengals who have surprised with their fast start in the AFC.
“Hot piss” or not, the Packers will have a tough time challenging the trio of receivers for the Bengals in Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins and Ja’Marr Chase without Jaire Alexander in the lineup. Alexander hurt his shoulder against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 4 and his status moving forward for the rest of the year is still foggy.
For Green Bay, it’s an opportunity to pick up a road win against a team that appears to be legitimate in Cincinnati. A win would move the Packers to 4-1 as they continue to adjust with plenty of injuries piling up.
