Matt LaFluer, Greatest Coach in DML History?

Matt LaFluer, Greatest Coach in DML History?

Head Coach of the Green Bay Packers, Matt LaFluer, is being regarded as one of the best head coaches in football history… Is Coach LaFluer the best ever?

Coach LaFluer at the start of the Madden 20 cycle, was a level 1 head coach with only one expertise and that was coaching the QB position. He did not have any wins and this was his first head coaching job. Over the course of 8 seasons, he has led one of the greatest dynasties the league has ever seen. In year 2026, Coach LaFluer is now a level 30 head coach and is an expert in every aspect of being a head coach. Coach LaFluer is currently ranked as the #1 head coach in the legacy leader board and is only behind Packers Owner R. Embro in overall legacy.

Out of 32 teams, only 5 teams have had the same head coach the entire 8 seasons. Kyle Shannahan (49ers), Doug Marone (Jaguars), Dan Quinn (Falcons) and Pat Shurmur (Giants) are the only coaches to have survived black Monday’s in addition to Coach LaFluer. The Packers success and consistency this cycle has everything to do with Coach LaFluer being the stable leader for the organization!

Coach LaFluer has compiled a total 110 wins and only 17 losses in his 8 seasons as the head coach. That is a win percentage of .86 which is #1 all time! Coach LaFluer’s playoff record is an amazing 19-1 with his only loss in the 2020 wildcard round to the eventual SB Champion SF 49ers. That amazing playoff record has a win percentage of .95 which is also #1 all time! Coach LaFluer has led the Packers to NFC North Division Champions in 6 of 8 seasons. Coach Lafluers divisional record is 43-5 with his only losses coming to Da Bears. Coach LaFluer won DML coach of the year in 2023 but has finished in top 4 in 6 of his 8 seasons. Coach Lafluer and the Packers have not missed the playoffs in all 8 seasons which was a goal from day 1!

The Packers have had two undefeated seasons (2021 & 2026) and have won a Super Bowl as a wild card team (6th seed). Coach LaFluer has been able to weather many storms and have his team mentally and physically prepared for the most important time of the year, the playoffs. The Packers have faced a lot of dominant teams in the NFC Playoffs & Super Bowls but LaFluer has had a knack of having his team ready for war! We have seem Coach LaFluer make some big time decisions such as starting a rookie 2nd round pick Quarterback, Martin Teague, over one of the greatest of all time in Aaron Rodgers.

The Packers have had a lot of great playoff games this cycle with sometimes the ball not bouncing their way most of the game. DML media reporter, Christoper Murray, has made it known the Packers were underdogs in many games, even the Super Bowls, and Coach LaFluer has used that to fuel his team. The Packers have been down as many as 17 points, Cardinals in 2024 NFC Divisional Round, in a playoff game and have come back to win. In the 2023 Super Bowl against the Dolphins, the Packers were down by 10 going into the 4th quarter. Coach LaFluer rallied his team and provided the spark they needed to make a comeback to secure their 4th Super Bowl Championship!

Coach Lafluer & the Packers have won a total of 6 Super Bowls which is 2nd all time in the DML but the hunger is still there for the Packers lead man. When interviewed by the media just the other day, LaFluer said “I coach to win, not to lose. I hate losing more than I enjoy winning”. The Packers had a vision in 2019 when Coach Lafluer was hired at only 39 years old and they wouldn’t want any other man to lead their organization!

The Packers look to close out the 2026 season against the Patriots and prepare for another Super Bowl Championship run! Coach LaFluer and the Packers are seeking their 7th Super Bowl Championship!
