Mike McCarthy didn't need to wait until the Green Bay Packers completed their crash course on defending the read option or give defensive coordinator Dom Capers time to finish his offseason analysis to know what his team must do better this season.

Mike McCarthy hates the question. He bristled when asked it again Tuesday at the NFL annual meetings: Are the Green Bay Packers a physical enough football team?

I don't get it. Why go to TAM to learn how to defend the read option?
Certainly go and learn how the offense puts it together and what they look for but get your butts down to LSU to learn how to DEFEND the damn thing.

Manziel had season lows against LSU. They must know something about how to shut it down.

The kid was 29-56 a 51.8% for 276 yards. He was intercepted 3 times. Ran the ball 17 times for 27 yards. The score was close 24-19 so it was not a blow out where he had to pass every single time.

The Packers did little last season to support McCarthy’s claim.


see the comments in the other thread on this issue. GB has a long way to go to show they are even remotely "tough". But then Mike McCarthy has no other choice but to say they are a tough team even when they have proven that they are not. He can't come out and say they play like a bunch of pu wimps. Perhaps injuries are part of the reason. We will see if they can beat up teams on both the OL and DL.

So, those who were injured were the "tough" guys? :)

I wasn't making the excuse that it was all injury related. I meant to say some people will claim that.

I was just poking around that the idea the tough guys on the team were injured. They got boo-boo's but yet they are the "tough" guys. [grin1]

They've been called out. That's the first step.

Let's see if they can prove themselves. I'll believe it when I see it.

I would say if the team doesn't respond to the toughness question we have problems. If that doesn't raise your hackles as an athlete nothing will.

hardrocker950 (30-Sep) : Just wonderful - my pick em didn't register....
beast (29-Sep) : I'm not sure if it's still true, but it used to be hard to get sacks on Eli because he'd toss one up when linemen got semi-close (which lead
Zero2Cool (29-Sep) : Slam Eli a lot very early. Once rattled he can't regain composure.
beast (29-Sep) : since slot WRs might be the Packers strength depth/talent wise
beast (29-Sep) : With AR's passing % down field so low, I've been saying they should go with short passes like the Pats used to do, especially since slot WRs
beast (29-Sep) : What's going to be needed against the Giants is OL and DBs (IMO)
Smokey (28-Sep) : Cook(TE) has time to heal, but may not be needed against NYG on Oct 9th .
Zero2Cool (27-Sep) : . Aaron Rodgers has a completion percentage of 33.3 on 10+ air yard passes this season (tied for the lowest in NFL).
Zero2Cool (27-Sep) : High-ankle sprain could sideline Cook
Zero2Cool (26-Sep) : Odell Beckham Jr, Dez Bryant, Alshon Jeffery and Julio Jones on tap for Packers. Yippie.

TheKanataThrilla (25-Sep) : Cleveland loses.
The_Green_Ninja (25-Sep) : I swear, Jacksonville's hot weather must be a huge advantage. Kept it super close with the Ravens
TheKanataThrilla (25-Sep) : Su'a Cravens with a big INT. A guy I wanted.
TheKanataThrilla (25-Sep) : Can Cleveland win?

Zero2Cool (25-Sep) : CB Quinten Rollins will start for Shields. Micah Hyde for Burnett. Julius Peppers for Matthews. Kenny Clark for Guion.
Tezzy (25-Sep) : Probably will not be on the top of the Pick'Em leaderboard after today, soaking it in beforehand
