On Wednesday, the NFL's annual meetings wrapped up in Arizona, and with NFC coaches meeting with the media yesterday we may have had the last chance to hear from Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy before the NFL Draft.

He addressed numerous topics during his discussions, and expressed some disappointment about one of the proposed rules changes that did not get passed.

Then again, he didn't go on a "profane tirade" about a refused proposal like another NFL head coach. We've got that and much more in today's curds.

It's a "win-win" according to McCarthy, because Suh leaves the NFC North and his good friend Joe Philbin gets to improve his defensive line.

Expect to see that alignment quite a bit more in 2015, regardless of any injury status to Aaron Rodgers. If he has his normal mobility, that formation could be even more deadly.

One aspect of the changes to instant replay that the Packers would have supported was challenging certain penalties. That would have come in handy on the interception in the NFC Championship Game, when Michael Bennett jumped offsides but was not flagged by the referees.

I can't believe I'm agreeing with Bill Belichick on something, but it's fun to imagine him going on a "profane tirade" about this issue.
