NOW: Rodgers’ morning meeting with QBs and WRs leaves impact

GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- When your two-time reigning MVP/future Hall of Famer speaks, you better listen. Aaron Rodgers voiced his opinion on the lack of consistency from his youngest receivers yesterday, Aug. 16, and they responded with a much better performance one day later.

"It's a different type of intensity being here," said Packers wide receiver Sammy Watkins.

All of the newcomers got a full example of that today. Aaron Rodgers held a meeting with all of the QBs and receivers emphasizing the little things, reiterating a message his coach approves of.

"I appreciate this about Aaron, the urgency to get some of this stuff corrected. You can't make the same mistake twice, not in this league. We don't have time for it. I think it's good for these guys to feel that," said Head Coach Matt LaFleur.

It's like one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time if not the greatest so you got to take it to heart. He's a team leader. He's definitely a voice that we listen to," said rookie receiver Samori Toure.

Rodgers' most trusted receiver Randall Cobb says they've been sharing the same message in the receiver room, and knows it’s a daily process.

"Seeing the full picture. It's not always about your right and what you have. It's about the how you fit into the play concept and being in the right place at the right time," said Cobb.

"I'm confident in our room because we got vets that are experienced and that have played this game. Going to be able to teach us some of the little things that can be the biggest part of our games," said rookie receiver Romeo Doubs.

Sammy Watkins is not a rookie, but in his words, he's studying his butt off to make sure he too reaches the standard set by Aaron Rodgers, Randall Cobb and Allen Lazard so that he can contribute when his number is called.
