151029-nn1GREEN BAY — There was a sense of urgency in Mike McCarthy’s voice.

“I feel in the first six games you have to create your identity. In this stage you have to galvanize who you are. This six-game stretch is exactly what we need as a football team. This is where you have to knock off all of the edges. Discipline has to go way up,” the Packers head coach told the media on Thursday.

McCarthy said he broke the schedule into three divisions: the first six, the next six and the last four.

“We looked at as the hero’s journey,” McCarthy said.

This week’s focus is on undefeated Denver, the first game of the second division of the Packers’ schedule. McCarthy said running back Eddie Lacy was beginning to look like his old self after battling through an ankle injury. His backup, James Starks, is rehabbing a hip injury.

“His work was good yesterday. The plan is to try to get him to do more today,” McCarthy said of Starks.
