OK..

Who is Mike McCarthy referring to when he say's he does not want a "Punk. Loser Mentality" in Green bay?

He said that exact phrase for a reason... It was not something regurgitated and just pulled out of Vince's fedora. I think he was specifically referring to a specific person or persons.

I have my own theory, but I am not in the locker room so it is just speculation.

Mike is pissed. I like it. I am putting money on the Pack this weekend (Plus 3.5 Points)

it may be from the blaming outside factors for losses and not taking accountability for losses due to the last few elite years they may think they are by default better than everyone.

I've heard people say that we think we're too cocky, or too full of ourselves, etc.
I refuse to think that because this team is not unselfish.

I mean we should go in every game with the mindset that we'll win right? It's not like we're Rex Ryan saying we'll win the super bowl before a season starts. The players and coaches preach taking it one game at a time, ecspecially Mike McCarthy

Here's the actual quote when asked about there bay any panic within the locker room.
Mike McCarthy said:
You don’t overreact. I’m not a panicker. I think it’s a punk mentality, frankly. I think it’s a loser mentality. It’s time to increase the urgency. We have a great opportunity on Sunday night football. We’re excited to play this team. This is a good team. They’re undefeated. We know how that feels. We know what that position feels like. But we’re going down to Houston to win a football game. That’s what we’re focused on. We got off to a great start today.



Packers played like punks in the second half of the Colts game.

Thanks Zero.

It sounds like he wasn't referring to anyone specifically in that context. It's more saying who we're not.

He can talk like that, because he knows his teams always play up to their competition.

Unfortunately they also play down to their competition.

Yeah I don't believe that this was directed towards anyone in particular. Like stated earlier, he was basically saying what we weren't.

I actually like it when he gets like this.
Mike McCarthy was like this before the Superbowl too. WE'RE NOBODY'S UNDERDOG.

It shows emotion and confidence. It shows that he's got at least some sort of emotional connection with the team.

This regime can be very antiseptic with their tendency to always be "on script," saying the right things. This was VERY important for instance, during the Favre fiasco.

But sometimes it's good to hear that emotion isn't a matter of indifference to MM.

It was balanced AND effective. They knew WHERE to run the ball tonight. It was a match up win for the Pack tonight.
