Packers' lack of fire irks LaFleur; Pettine to stay

Coach Matt LaFleur is bothered that the Packers, especially the defense, didn't play "with their hair on fire" with an opportunity to go to the Super Bowl. Defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, however, will return to LaFleur's staff, sources told ESPN.

After the NFC title game, several players said there wasn't a big gap between the Packers and 49ers. Matt LaFleur spoke reality: "There obviously is. We played them twice, and they took it to us. We'll take a good, hard look at that this offseason. They're the class of the NFC."

Matt LaFleur said he still thinks Aaron Rodgers is "one of the most talented players out there. … I know the numbers weren't what you guys expected, but I'm excited about another offseason working with him." LaFleur said he appreciated how open-minded Rodgers was to change and "being comfortable with some of the uncomfortable things we asked him to do."

Matt LaFleur said one thing the Packers never got to on offense was their uptempo package. He's also excited about the fact that this will be the first time since after the 2015 season that's saying in the same place for a second year. "It's an opportunity to study yourself but also what's going on around the league," LaFleur said.

Matt LaFleur on whether Mike Pettine will return as defensive coordinator: "We're still working through everything right now. I think our defense did a lot of great things. Obviously the last game was really disappointing … It wasn't just the defense. Our offense and special teams weren't up to par as well." LaFleur said he will meet with team president Mark Murphy soon and "then we'll start making some decisions

Stories behind every Super Bowl ring

They're big and small. They've been lost while surfing in Hawaii and dancing at Studio 54. They've been found in taxis and hotel nightstands. Each ring, and its wearer, has a unique story to tell.

The Packers signed their entire practice squad to reserve/futures contracts. They will go on the 90- man offseason roster. The list: TE Evan Baylis, T Cody Conway, RB Damarea Crockett, CB Kabion Ento, TE James Looney, LB Randy Ramsey, WR Darrius Shepherd, WR Malik Taylor, QB Manny Wilkins, LB Tim Williams.

More context to Aaron Rodgers and what his defenses have done (or not done) in his 18 playoff starts: Rodgers and Dan Marino are the only starting QBs in the Super Bowl era whose teams allowed 35-plus in a playoff game 5 times. There are 32 starting QBs with at least 5 playoff losses in the Super Bowl era. Of those, Rodgers' defenses allowed the most points per game in the losses. There are 32 QBs with at least 10 playoff starts and Rodgers' defenses allowed the most points per game, 26.8.

Something to think about when it comes to Aaron Rodgers and the playoffs: W-L record: 10-8. Points allowed in wins: 19.2 per game. Points allowed in losses: 36.4 per game (including a league-high 5 games of 35-plus points allowed). Some context on those numbers: The Patriots, in that same span, have 1 playoff game with 35-plus points allowed in 24 games. The Seahawks have 3 in 17 games, the Ravens 2 in 14 games and Saints 2 in 13 games.

Three Packers added to the Pro Bowl as alternates: WR Davante Adams (for Julio Jones), DT Kenny Clark (for Aaron Donald) and OLB Za'Darius Smith (for Khalil Mack). This is Adams' third straight trip to the Pro Bowl (2017-19), making him the first Packers receiver to make three consecutive Pro Bowls since Sterling Sharpe (1992-94). Clark and Smith are first-timers. Also, no surprise here but Aaron Rodgers has pulled out of the Pro Bowl, replaced by Kirk Cousins.

The Packers finished 26th in Rick Gosselin's annual special-teams rankings. That's a six-spot jump from dead last in the 2018 season. Perhaps the best thing first-year coordintor Shawn Mennenga's units did was reduce penalties. They cut them in half from 26 last season to 13 this past year, fourth fewest in the NFL.

Nothing suggests the Packers need for another starting receiver more than the fact that opening-day No. 2 Marquez Valdes-Scantling played one snap on Sunday. After his lone 100-yard game in Week 7, he caught just six passes for 44 yards the rest of the season. Here are the offensive snap counts the NFC Championship Game loss at the 49ers.

The Packers' defense was so porous that 49ers RB Raheem Mostert gained 142 of his 220 yards rushing BEFORE contact, including 108 of his 160 yards in the first half. CB Tramon Williams said: "The guy was just gashing us the whole night, and I'm talking about it wasn't little holes, it was huge holes." The 49ers' eight total pass attempts were the third-fewest in a playoff game in the Super Bowl era. Here are the defense of snap counts from Sunday's NFC Championship Game loss:
