Mike McCarthy said:
We weren’t regimented enough. That’s definitely the case. The way we practiced the last month of the season wasn’t conducive to getting ready for the kind of scheme that was going to make you play defense and hunker down with your fundamentals.

Yeah. It was his responsibility, was it not?

Mike McCarthy has got to upgrade himself if we are going to make any significant changes in improving the team this season. He called horrific games at the start of our season v. SF and SEA. We couldn't afford that. Those losses were squarely on him.

Two thoughts:
1. It worries me that we weren't prepared. Okay, early on in the season you can get surprised by teams, it happens. But by the postseason, you know what kind of teams people have and there's not that much room for surprises. Absolutely a coaching failure.
2. I'm glad that he's actually taking responsibility, the next step is to not repeat these mistakes.

I'd rather SEE toughness than read about it as a concept. I hope he and Ted can transform our team into one that shows real toughness, every week.

I felt we severely lacked toughness twice against SF, and v. SEA, IND, NYG, MIN. We looked like boys amongst men. It's Mike's charge to change that with attitude and preparation. Your team simply cannot show up unprepared.

The Packers were woefully unprepared in the playoffs against the Giants, and came into the playoffs unprepared again this year.
Add in his tunnel vision with regard to play calling and one could start to doubt Mike McCarthy regardless of his stellar won loss record.
He just may be too stubborn to make necessary and timely adjustments.

My memory of the San Fran game is fading a bit, were there major offensive adjustments that needed to be made? All I remember is getting killed on the ground - And that's Capers' territory, not McCarthy.

http://scores.espn.go.co...d=330112025&period=3

Down 7 midway through the 3rd, Mike McCarthy on GBs 3rd possession calls goes with 5 WR shotgun spread 6 straight plays in a row, runs no time off the clock and sends his D, which is already running on fumes, back out to field after the Keapernick 56 yard run for the TD. The previous dive (2nd of the quarter for GB) had GB going out of the shotgun with only 2 rushes by Cobb. If it hadn't been for Aaron Rodgers running for a 1st down on 3rd and long on the 3rd rive it would have been a 3 and out. Mike McCarthy was leaving the defense hanging out to dry and not even bothering with time of possession.

Sorry, I should have been more clear on that.
I was actually alluding to adjustments in training regimen and practice regimen preparing to face the opponent.
If he sees the players not practicing up to his expectations, I think that as head coach he would take steps to somehow rectify that.
It seems that the Packers have a tendancy to come out flat in big games.
As head coach he is supposed to ensure that that doesn't happen.
Sometimes I think Mike McCarthy is too soft on his players.

I'm happy that the Packers are in contention every year, but not satisfied with our playoff preparedness over the last two years.

THIS is the quote that worries me.

Quote:

"To me, we're a physical, tough football team," McCarthy said at the National Football League combine. "I totally disagree. I don't know how you can put the tape on and say the Green Bay Packers aren't physical."


Several others of you have also alluded to the team's lack of toughness. I just wanted to get his quote into this thread as well.

Another time Mike points to the ST as being tough ergo the whole franchise is "tough". #-o

It takes more than one player or segment of the team to be "tough" to make the whole team "tough". Why not talk about the 2/3 of the team that is actually out on the field for 90% of the snaps?

I have an issue with the original quote because it illustrates he didn't learn from last year as he said something nearly identical. How can you expect a team to be 'on board' with you when you commit the same failure in back to back years?
