Mike McCarthy On Adversity Situations

Rob Demovsky interviewed Mike McCarthy at the NFL annual meeting. From the Press-Gazette:

"Pass defense will be an emphasis," McCarthy said during a break at the NFL annual meetings at the Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes resort. "We haven’t really presented it to the team yet, but the two biggest things defensively (are) going to be tackling and handling adversity. Our adversity situations (last) year were not close to what they needed to be and did not match up to our production throughout our defense."

McCarthy is a pro with coach speak clichés, but what the heck is he talking about when he said they are going to work on "our adversity situations"? Will he tell his defensive backs that getting torched is a learning experience? Will he quote some Shakespeare? 

I'd prefer he teach CB Brandon Underwood and CB Jarrett Bush how to stay within 5 yards of a wide receiver. Or require them to all watch film with CB Charles Woodson
