Fans, media absolutely shred Packers coach Matt Lafleur following NFC title game loss

Sharing is caring!

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Green Bay Packers in Sunday afternoon’s NFC championship game by a 31-26 final score, bringing their season that saw them win 13 regular season games to a screeching halt.

And Packers head coach Matt Lafleur will have some explaining to do for a head-scratching decision that came late in the 4th quarter.

With his team down by eight points and facing a 4th-and-goal from the 8 yard line with 2:05 remaining, Lafleur instead elected to trot out kicker Mason Crosby for a field goal. The Packers weren’t able to get a stop after that, as the Bucs prevailed by a 31-26 final score, sending Tom Brady to his 10th Super Bowl.

Meanwhile, it’s now been 10 years since Green Bay participated in the Big Game.

Afterwards, Lafleur was being put through the wringer by angry fans and puzzled media members alike. Take a look at a sampling of the reactions below.
