‘Postseason is what counts’

QB Graham Harrell and Head Coach Mike McCarthy

Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy made these comments during his welcome-to-training-camp press conference on Wednesday:

- “I think everybody would be happy with 15-1 in the regular season, but I think everybody knows the postseason is what counts.”

- “The (preseason) games are very important for Graham (Harrell). He has very good command of the offense. He needs to play. He needs the live reps. I want to see him play tough in the pocket, transition and make plays.”

- “It’s clearly a different defense and it’s going to be a different offense, too, frankly.”

- “These young guys have added a lot of energy. It’ll be exciting to see them in pads,” McCarthy said of the team’s draft picks, the first six of which are defensive players.

    Damn right. We saw what happened last season. I don’t care if the Pack have another 15-1 season. I wanna see the title brought back to Title Town. That’s the only thing that really matters. GO PACK GO!!

    Yeah, should have given that speech before the lowly Giants had packers for dinner yet again. Makes me sooo sick of football. Not even hungry for this season at all.

    That game started to get me worrying. Maybe we were a one year wonder, I hope not, but it almost seems like it.

    This team will go far… Super Bowl a real possibility. that is all any fan can ask, true? Fix some defensive shortcomings and keep 12 upright, thats a pretty good recipe… the best I have seen in my 50+ years of packer fandom!!
