Packers coach Mike McCarthy is feeling confident following the Packers’ last on-field practice before Super Bowl XLV.
McCarthy told Jim Trotter, who’s serving as the pool reporter at Packers practices, that he’s excited about how confident his players seem heading into their showdown with the Steelers.
“The one thing you want to see in your football team is that the players have maintained confidence throughout the process,” McCarthy said. “Our guys have done that. They totally believe what’s in front of them. They believe in what they’ve seen on film. We respect Pittsburgh, but we feel that this is our time and Sunday will be our night.”
The Packers still have one “jog-through” practice on Saturday morning and regular team meetings Saturday and Sunday, but as of their final full practice, McCarthy thinks his team is ready to bring home the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
“I feel good about preparation,” he said. “I thought today was sharp.”
