Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy does not agree with critics who feel his team has grown soft over the last couple of seasons. "To me, we're a physical, tough football team," McCarthy said. "I totally disagree. I don't know how you can put the tape on and say the Green Bay Packers aren't physical." McCarthy added the team plays the same way it did during their Super Bowl campaign. "How do we play any different from the approach, the identity today that we did in 2010?" McCarthy said. "How do you swing that far? You don't go from here to here." The Packers are a passing team that struggles to run against base defenses. On defense, they have ranked 26th each of the past two seasons in average yards allowed per rush.

Green Bay Packers RB Alex Green will get the first carry in the team's Week 6 game. After that, however, head coach Mike McCarthy said he will go with the "hot hand" between Green, RB James Starks and RB Brandon Saine. All three running backs received first-team reps in practice Wednesday, Oct. 10. "Alex and James both got reps today and so did Brandon Saine," McCarthy said. "The first carry will be Alex Green. He's a little farther ahead than James is right now and that's the way we'll go. But we have three halfbacks and we'll utilize all three of them."
Fantasy Tip: Owners must take a wait-and-see approach when it comes to the Packers' backfield at this point as it appears to be a fluid situation. Green may be the man moving forward, but keep a close eye on how the carries are distributed in Week 6 to get a better idea.

Elliott awarded Seattle Seahawks WR Golden Tate a game-winning touchdown Sept. 24 on a Hail Mary pass that appeared to have been intercepted by Packers FS M.D. Jennings. "He called me at my house last week because he had heard I was having a rough week with all the calls and everything," Elliott said. "Wanted (me) to know that he thought what I did - controversial and maybe he didn't agree with it - (but he thought) I handled it with class." Elliott said he would probably change his ruling now. "I'd probably call interception. I learned a rule by screwing up the rule," Elliott said.

Our defensive line and our linebackers did a very good job of bringing the pressure and, more importantly, the finish and the extra effort of always seeing two or three or four hats on the ball."

The team also has little depth at the running back position. "I don't know what's going on, I've never seen anything like it," McCarthy said. "I've never dealt with numbers like this before, just the number of players missing practice."
Wed, 27 Jun 2012 06:46:25 -0700
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said he has high hopes for the team in 2012. McCarthy added he believes the current edition of the Packers is the most talented team he's coached. "I just feel with all returning players, our fourth year in the system defensively, fifth year in the system with Shawn (Slocum) ... we have a lot of experience with the players in this system," McCarthy said. "I just feel as a whole, it was a very athletic offseason program and I've been impressed with the quality of depth and the competition we're going to have."

"I don't want this to come out the wrong way, because that win is special, that's a great win for their football team. The margin of victory they won with, too, is definitely to their credit. But I feel like we beat ourselves in this playoff game. Or better yet, we didn't give ourselves a chance to win the game."
Thu, 29 Mar 2012 07:38:29 -0700
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said if he had to do it all over again, he'd still rest QB Aaron Rodgers in the meaningless Week 17 finale against the Detroit Lions with homefield advantage wrapped up. Some critics believe rust was the reason the Packers lost to the New York Giants in the NFC divisional playoffs. "As far as sitting players, I wouldn't change that at all," McCarthy said. "A fresh team is the best team because you can accomplish the things you need to accomplish leading up to that game if you go about it the right way."

Mon, 26 Dec 2011 06:33:31 -0800

QB Aaron Rodgers added he thinks the team should worry more about getting healthy with the No. 1 seed in the NFC locked up. "I think we need to get healthy," Rodgers said. "That's the main thing. Now that we have the top seed sewed up, the priorities may shift a bit."
Mon, 12 Dec 2011 15:53:09 -0800
