News now! Packers accomplished two-day practice goals

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 3, 2015 – 12:28 pm

150103-news-now-mccarthy-300GREEN BAY — As the Packers wrapped up their two days of playoff bye week practice on Saturday, Head Coach Mike McCarthy was pleased with everything the team was able to work on, from red zone to third down pressure periods and everything else the coaching staff’s self-scout told them they needed to shore up.

“The team (11-on-11) work was great. It was all competitive,” McCarthy said. “Our young guys got a lot of work. It was a very beneficial practice. We had the half-line drill, got some hard run plays in. That was good for our offense and good for our defense. It’s always good to be in pads.”

The players will report back to work on Monday for game-plan meetings and will return to the practice field on Wednesday for their normal work week leading up to next Sunday’s NFC divisional playoff at Lambeau Field. The Packers will find out their opponent this weekend as the wild card games are resolved.

“Just as we left the field, we said whatever happens here the next two days is totally irrelevant,” McCarthy said. “This is about us. It’s not about who comes out of the south end zone tunnel at noon on the 11th. We’ll be ready to go.”

News now! Aaron Rodgers won’t practice until next Thursday

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 2, 2015 – 12:17 pm

150102-news-now-mccarthy-300GREEN BAY — Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy said on Friday that he was going to have QB Aaron Rodgers sit out of practice until at least next Thursday to rest and rehab his injured calf.

“Aaron’s doing well,” McCarthy said following the Packers’ first workout during their playoff bye week. “He’s been in treatment during the practice period, and we’ll do the same tomorrow. I really don’t see him getting on the practice field until Thursday probably at the earliest.”

The Packers will practice again on Saturday, in pads, and then the players will return on Monday for meetings to begin preparation for the playoff opponent. The Packers won’t know if they’re playing the Cowboys, Cardinals or Panthers until the Detroit-Dallas game concludes on Sunday night.

After Monday, the players will take Tuesday off and then begin their normal practice regimen on Wednesday. McCarthy said he’s not overly concerned about the practice reps Rodgers will miss if he doesn’t return to the field until Thursday.

“I’m not concerned,” he said. “He’s already started the preparation process. There are some things we went through today with self-scout and the direction we want to go. He’ll be prepared. There won’t be a bunch of new ideas or things he hasn’t seen or things he hasn’t had the reps with his teammates.”

McCarthy is hoping, of course, that with the extra time off Rodgers’ calf will be in better shape for the playoff game on Jan. 11 than it was for last week’s Detroit game, which was just seven days after the original injury.

“I would think so, but time will answer that,” he said. “No injury is ever exactly the same, and this definitely falls in that area.”

Packers.com will provide a full report following locker room interviews.

Aaron Rodgers leading Packers to division title voted Never Say Never Moment for Week 17

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 31, 2014 – 3:07 pm

QB Aaron RodgersGREEN BAY — Packers QB Aaron Rodgers’ return from a calf injury to lead Green Bay to its fourth straight NFC North title on Sunday has been voted the league’s Never Say Never Moment of the Week for Week 17. A fan vote was conducted on NFL.com.

Rodgers posted a 139.6 passer rating in the Packers’ 30-20 victory over the Lions last Sunday at Lambeau Field. He completed 11 of 13 passes after halftime, when he was treated for an injured calf that forced him to miss the first offensive series of the second half. He threw two TD passes in the game and rushed for another on a QB sneak.

This marks the third time this season Rodgers and the Packers have been voted the Never Say Never Moment. Green Bay also won for its last-second victory over the Dolphins in Week 6 and its down-to-the-wire triumph over New England in Week 13.

Wisconsin Favorites: Country vs. city

Posted by Paige Curtis on December 30, 2014 – 11:05 am

141104-Week-16-Harley-Davidson-Museum-in-MilwaukeeDo you enjoy the slow pace of country living or the hustle and bustle and bright lights of big city life?

No. 24 Jarrett Bush – Small town country guy.

No. 42 Morgan Burnett – Definitely the big city lights.

No. 10 Matt Flynn – Country.

No. 90 B.J. Raji – I’m a city kid, so I prefer the city lights.

No. 21 Ha Ha Clinton-Dix – I prefer the city lights.

Located at the convergence of three beautiful rivers and on the shores of Lake Michigan, Milwaukee offers plenty of winter fun. Take a tour of the Pabst Mansion, venture inside the warm illuminated Mitchell Park Domes, go ice-skating at Cathedral Square, take a brewery tour at Sprecher Brewery or take in an Admirals game. Still don’t think it’s enough to fill a weekend? Head over to the Milwaukee Art Museum, tour the Harley-Davidson Museum or take a walk through old Milwaukee at the Milwaukee Public Museum.

News now! Packers will prepare for all three possible opponents

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 29, 2014 – 2:21 pm

141229-news-now-mccarthy-300GREEN BAY — The Packers could end up playing any one of three teams — Dallas, Carolina or Arizona — in the NFC divisional playoffs on Sunday, Jan. 11, and Head Coach Mike McCarthy said Monday the coaching staff will begin preparing this week for all possibilities.

“You have to prepare for all three,” McCarthy said. “Everyone knows what the combinations are.”

The game that will determine Green Bay’s opponent is the Detroit-Dallas game, which won’t be played until late Sunday afternoon. If Dallas wins, the Cowboys come to Green Bay. If the Lions win, the winner of Saturday’s Cardinals-Panthers game will visit Lambeau.

McCarthy said once the first NFC game is done on Saturday, that will narrow the coaching staff’s focus to two teams. Then the staff will watch the Detroit-Dallas game together the next day.

“We’ll watch the game here at 3 o’clock on Sunday and we’ll go right into game plan meetings on Sunday night,” McCarthy said.

As for that Detroit-Dallas game, the Lions will be without star defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh, who was suspended by the league Monday for stepping on QB Aaron Rodgers’ leg during Sunday’s game in Green Bay. After the game, McCarthy called Suh’s act “ridiculous” and said there’s “no place” in the game for it. Just before McCarthy took the podium on Monday, he was informed of the league’s decision.

“Frankly, that’s an NFL matter,” McCarthy said. “I gave my opinion last night.”

The players are off until Friday and then they will have two practices, on Friday and Saturday, to focus on fundamentals. Preparation for their specific opponent on the field will begin next week.

Regarding Rodgers, McCarthy said he “feels good.”

“He had some testing done. We feel we have a good plan for his rehab this week. We’ll see how he’s doing on Friday,” McCarthy said.
