McCarthy reacts at halftime of #GBvsKC

Posted by Duke Bobber on August 29, 2013 – 8:34 pm

HEAD COACH MIKE McCARTHY
(on his impression of the team in the first half) “Well, we just told the offense it’s a bump-and-run, man-to-man game. This is great work for our quarterbacks against pressure. We’ve got to extend the play more, whether it’s the run-blocking unit, the pass-protection unit—get after the guys on the perimeter. Defensively, I think we’re doing a heck of a job, particularly keeping them out of the end zone here. We had the one penalty that extended the drive. We’re doing a great job on third down. Special teams is always a challenge in this game and we’ve just got to do a better job keeping our sideline management, making sure we’re coordinating who is in this game.”

(on how it feels to return to Kansas City, the place where he began his career) “It’s always special coming back here. Great place.”

Matthews and Perry share thoughts at halftime of #SEAvsGB

Posted by Duke Bobber on August 23, 2013 – 9:04 pm

GREEN BAY PACKERS vs. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS, Aug. 23, 2013, at Green Bay, Wis.

LINEBACKER CLAY MATTHEWS
(on how it felt to keep the Seahawks’ running game in check) “Obviously it feels good. That’s what we pride ourselves on, especially the front seven. To be able to go out there and shut them down, especially on first and second down, to create favorable down and distances on third down, which I thought we did for the most part. A few runs here and there, but for the most part I thought we did well. We got after the quarterback, kept him in the pocket and overall I thought we did a good job minimizing their big-play ability.”

(on his sack of Russell Wilson) “Obviously that was a big emphasis for us last year and even more so this year, is limiting his ability to create plays by running out of the pocket. He’s going to make his plays, but I felt for the most part, not only myself, but as a rushing unit, we did a good job of keeping him bottled up in the pocket, forcing some errant throws and getting after him.”

(on how he feels coming out of tonight’s game in preparation for the season) “I feel real good about where I’m at. Obviously tonight is a great tune-up and we will continue to do so over the next week getting ready for the San Francisco opener.”

LINEBACKER NICK PERRY
(on the defense’s performance overall in the first half) “We’re just doing our job out there. We’re just playing football. We’re doing a pretty good job of containing him (Russell Wilson) and we’ve just got to continue to focus on that and make plays.”

(on his tipped pass) “I knew he was coming to my side to throw the ball. My reaction was to just throw my hands up and keep him contained. It played out well. I was able to get my hand on it and we got the interception.”

Packers-Rams halftime quotes

Posted by Duke Bobber on August 17, 2013 – 9:19 pm

GREEN BAY PACKERS vs. ST. LOUIS RAMS, Aug. 17, 2013, at St. Louis

HEAD COACH MIKE McCARTHY
(on his impression of the team in the first half) “Well, I thought the defense did a heck of a job keeping them out of the end zone. Real impressed with our defense being able to do it on third down. One thing missing from the game is we need to take the football away, either from our coverage units or defensively. So offense, put the ball in the end zone. First downs, taking care of the football, we’re doing that. I think we’ve had a solid first half.”

(on Eddie Lacy’s first-half performance) “Yeah, you know it’s great to have Eddie back healthy. You know that’s number one. He felt good out there and did some good things. So obviously we wanted to look at the run game tonight. I feel good about the way it was blocked and we’ll take a look at the video.”

QUARTERBACK AARON RODGERS
(on moving the ball but only coming away with six points) “Yeah, it was frustrating missing on those third-and-ones, but there were a lot of positives. Jermichael (Finley) carried over what he has been doing in practice. He’s big and athletic and he’s playing very fast right now. He’s going to be a big weapon for us. Jarrett (Boykin) stepped up and made a nice catch. We’ve just got to finish off those drives off with touchdowns.”

(on how the offensive line handled the test of coming into a road environment) “The noise wasn’t like a regular-season game, but I thought they did a good job. David (Bakhtiari) is going to have a tough test every week on that side. (Robert) Quinn is soon to be one of the premier pass rushers in the league and I think he did a pretty good job on him. He obviously let him beat him inside on the one, but I thought the tempo was good, the protection for the most part was good, and we moved the ball well.”

(on Lacy’s performance) “Eddie is a talented guy. He just needs to stay healthy and get more opportunities. He’s a big-time player with a bright future in front of him if he can stay in the moment and not get content and continue to do the things he is doing. He’s very gifted.”

TIGHT END JERMICHAEL FINLEY
(on the first-team offense) “We felt good out there. We got the running game going early and then that opened up the passing game. We’re feeling good right now.”

(on the rhythm he is in with Rodgers) “That just comes with talking off the field, just getting things right. We talk a lot and we’ve just got that chemistry going. I feel like we have got it but there are always things to work on and always things to improve on.”

(on the frustration of only coming away with six points) “Yeah, the first group will go in and we’ll dissect the series we had. We’ve got to finish and put the ball in the end zone.”

Packers-Cardinals halftime quotes

Posted by Duke Bobber on August 9, 2013 – 8:59 pm

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.”

Packers-Chiefs halftime quotes from McCarthy

Posted by Duke Bobber on August 30, 2012 – 7:46 pm

HEAD COACH MIKE McCARTHY:
(on Graham Harrell) “I think it’s nice for the second- (team) offense to have some success. They need to continue in the second half like we talked about … He knows what he’s doing. He’s had some opportunities. I thought he played well in the first half.”

(on whether players stepping up today make roster decisions easier or harder) “It’s going to be hard either way. Just the fact of where we are as a football team, it’s extremely competitive. I just want to make sure that everybody gets an opportunity here in the second half.”
