Packers-Cardinals halftime quotes

130809-mccarthy-200HEAD COACH MIKE McCARTHY
(On his impression of the team in the first half) “Well, just what I told the football team, obviously on offense we’ve got to take care of the football with two turnovers, obviously led to scores. And finish drives. We’ve been moving the ball, a lot of productivity, but we’ve got to finish drives and get the points. Defensively we need to tackle better, tighten up the coverage. We need to take away the football. So with that, we need a big play on special teams. We’ve just kind of gone back and forth and hopefully we’ll get it right here on the kickoff return.”

(On what he told the team in the locker room and what he wants to see in the second half) “Win the damn game. We’re here to win. Get the energy up. It’s been a long week, we’ve got that. A lot of guys are getting a big opportunity here in the second half, playing more football than they would normally in Week 1 and just take advantage of it.”

130809-rodgers-200QUARTERBACK AARON RODGERS
(on finally going against another team) “It felt good. I thought we moved the ball pretty well. We would have liked to get that last one in. It looked like James (Starks) might have been able to stick it over the line there with his knee up. We moved the ball, converted a third down, but wish we could have had some points there.”

(on the long throw to James Jones) “James is an excellent route-runner and he does a good job with his hands. He got on top and he flashed on me and I was able to put the ball in a good spot. It is something we have been working on in practice, just trying to get on the same page and get the timing down. James is going to be a big-time player for us this year.”

(on how much it bothered him to not punch the ball in) “Yeah, it is frustrating. We had a good drive there, started back in our zone. We took it down the field and it would have been nice to have been able to finish that one off and get seven on the board. But it is about improving in the preseason. I thought we got better tonight and we’ve got to get better next week.”

130809-jonesj-200WIDE RECEIVER JAMES JONES
(on his 50-yard reception) “We got one-high, press-man coverage and I was able to knock my guy’s hands down and get on top of him. A-Rod threw a great ball. Man, I didn’t keep my feet though. I was trying to put my hand down, but I think that was a mistake. All my momentum brought me down.”

(on the rhythm of the offense) “It felt good. We were in and out of the huddle and established some tempo like we wanted to do. We drove the ball down there. We’re going to get into trouble because we didn’t put it in. A good drive, but we’ve got to score in the red zone.”

(on the performance of the starting offensive line) “A-Rod had a lot of time. He was throwing the ball well. He had a lot of time to get the ball out. He didn’t really run out of the pocket too much or have to scramble. They did their job.”

    Well… time to give Favre a call and see if he wants to be a back up for us this year.
