Packers WR has great quote about getting on same page with Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers has a reputation for being a difficult teammate to play with at times, but the Green Bay Packers star became one of the best quarterbacks in football by demanding excellence. According to one young receiver, living up to the two-time MVP’s expectations is not all that difficult.

Allen Lazard, an undrafted free agent out of Iowa State last year, played a huge role in Green Bay’s win over the Detroit Lions on Monday night with four catches for 65 yards and a key touchdown in the fourth quarter. When asked this week about the difficulties of getting in-sync with Rodgers, Lazard had a great response.

Davante Adams is expected to miss another game this weekend with turf toe and both Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison have missed practice all week, so Lazard may be asked to play a big role against the Oakland Raiders. If his fourth-quarter performance on Monday is any indication, he should be up to the task.

Rodgers supposedly had some serious issues with his receiving corps last season, but former Packers head coach Mike McCarthy may have been a big factor in that. At the end of the day, Rodgers is probably no more difficult to play with than Tom Brady is or Peyton Manning was. As Lazard said, all you really have to do is pay attention.
