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.

Cheesey (16m) : Rodgers would have hit open guys. The game plan wouldn't have killed us. Less 3 and outs, and maybe some scores.
beast (53m) : Rodgers wouldn't of abandon attepting to get the ball to Nelson and Adams.
Zero2Cool (1h) : Rodgers with that game plan would have came up short too.
beast (2h) : Yeah the Packers defense got wore out... being on the field so long. Giving longer breathers than 3&out would of helped a lot IMO.
Cheesey (3h) : There wouldn't have been so many 3 and outs, thus keeping our D off the field.
Cheesey (3h) : True, but with the low score we would have had a chance with Rodgers behind center.
Zero2Cool (3h) : Brees is a damn good QB, not giving Capers a pass, not even close.
Zero2Cool (3h) : Saints kicked Packers ass with Rodgers too.
Cheesey (3h) : That's just it. Rodgers needs a DEFENSE as well. And without him, there is NO chance.
beast (4h) : Just fire everyone! Rodgers can do it without them! Hell trade for the healthy Browns players!
Cheesey (6h) : Capers needs to GO. So do players that can't cut it.
Zero2Cool (7h) : Capers presser summed up? INjuries are why we suck. (shut up, coach and adapt)
Zero2Cool (7h) : nearly crapped myself hearing dom capers talk, forgot to close the tab after mccarthy haha
Zero2Cool (7h) : McCarthy said the communication was not good enough on defense yesterday. Injuries in secondary have complicated substitution patterns.
Zero2Cool (7h) : McCarthy again says "I believe in him"... sorry, BS, we saw how you believe in him yesterday.
Zero2Cool (8h) : @The_Green_Gold Highest graded players Kenny Clark & Blake Martinez. It wouldn't be possible to grade an entire defense
Porforis (8h) : Well, it WAS clean until someone 'shouted' in it...
Zero2Cool (8h) : QB Brett Hundley when targeting a WR against Saints: 6-for-15, 54 yards.
Zero2Cool (8h) : clean?
