Love Mike's response to @PackerReport when Bill asked how he expects to improve his team's tackling: "Practice tackling."— Aaron Nagler (@Aaron_Nagler) February 24, 2012
McCarthy: 'Our tackling will be better' The Green Bay Packers need to do a lot better job on defense next season, that's obvious. Every season should be about trying to make your team better, even if last season's record was 15-1. Mike McCarthy's always been a coach who's talked about improving the fundamentals, so this line of discussion was no surprise.
I did get a laugh out of this line from Packers.com: "when Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks bounced off a defender at midfield and and turned a short pass into a long touchdown run." Who could that unnamed defender have been? I guess
Charlie Peprah he must not be named. UPDATE: Maybe he deserved a pass today since it's his birthday.
Vic Ketchman says most of the discussion focused on Matt Flynn. McCarthy said "he's ready to be a starter." The Detroit Lions would agree.
He seems happy, unsurprisingly, that they've re-signed Jermichael Finley. And he seemed to hedge his bets about the return of Scott Wells.
