From the Packers’ official Twitter account, here’s a summary of the live tweets from Head Coach Mike McCarthy’s Saturday press conference:

Team worked on red zone and blitz today. Good practice, McCarthy said. Four days off really helped the players this week.

Team will have 90 to 95 percent of the game plan installed before leaving. Not a sprint to get ready. Trust the process, use the time.

Jenkins’ return to full strength has helped defense. “When he’s healthy, he’s as good as it gets,” McCarthy says.

Officiating crew will be announced next week, Tue. or Wed. Will be an all-star crew, so breaking down tendencies not the same.

Bigby has practiced well last three weeks, ready to go if opportunity knocks, McCarthy says. But Peprah is the starter.

Heath Miller is legitimate weapon at TE for Steelers. Showed how big and physical he can be last year vs. Packers.

Scott Wells has played his best football the last two years. Has total command of the offense and make adjustments needed.

McCarthy says he “wouldn’t turn down” a street named after him if Packers win. Unique thing in this community.

Team will practice at SMU’s outdoor stadium for practice, on FieldTurf, down in Texas. League assigned the venue.
