The Green Bay Packers are entering a new era, as they team fired Mike McCarthy after missing the postseason for two consecutive seasons. In a corresponding move, the Packers hired Matt LaFleur, a youthful mind to help bring the team into the next generation.

The big question mark for many was how somewhat-feisty quarterback Aaron Rodgers would handle LaFleur's offensive scheme.

Well, Packers fans will be pumped to hear that Rodgers is all-in on the new offense, and expects to have it down pat within the next three months.

"I've got to be honest, I don't know the whole offense yet," Rodgers said on Tuesday, via ESPN.com. "I've been studying it but the difference between understanding it on paper and actually getting reps in it -- the minicamp, those two days, and then the two days [of OTAs] that we've had so far is not a great sample size to tell you everything about the offense. It's going to be different. It's going to look different formationally and the motions and some of the things that we're doing. But I think it's an offense that I can infuse creativity and put my stamp on."

Last season, the Packers offense struggled under Coach McCarthy, and there was a reported rift between the former head coach and Rodgers with regards to play calls during games.

LaFleur does own a rather strong track record, of course. He was the quarterbacks coach for Matt Ryan during his time with the Atlanta Falcons, and played a role in the signal caller winning the NFL MVP in 2016. LaFleur would jump to the Los Angeles Rams as their offensive coordinator, and developed Jared Goff.

To hear that Rodgers likes the different look of the offense and that it allows for him to add his own input should excite the Packers fan base.

We will get our first look at the new Green Bay Packers offense once the preseason kicks off this August.
