Just a week ago, Packers Nation was riding high, assuming a 3-0 start was a given before they traveled to Minnesota for World War Four.
Of course, things weren’t nearly as good as they seemed last week. And they aren’t nearly as bad now.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy sounded off Wednesday about the desire to make wholesale changes, especially on the offensive line. McCarthy supported his beleaguered unit.
“Oh, they’re going to rise to the challenge. And they need to. And we
all do, starting with me,” McCarthy said. “We’re going down there to play football the
way we’re supposed to play football, OK? We didn’t play very good last
week. And that’s last week. We’re 1-1 and we’re excited about this
opportunity in St. Louis.”
McCarthy seemingly was responding to critics that want the tackle position addressed differently.
“We’re going to line up and play just the
way we did every day, nothing’s going to change, we’re not changing any
plays, any practice schedules, any linemen, any safeties, OK? So we’re
going down to St. Louis to win a game and we’re going to play our type
of football. That’s our approach.”
