It doesn’t sound like the knee injury to Greg Jennings will change the Packers’ approach to the rest of the season.
They still have to clinch homefield advantage in Week 14. After that, it sure sounds like the Packers will keep playing to win.
“I think I can speak for coach in that he’s going to try to go for this thing,” defensive tackle B.J. Raji said via Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com.
While Raji may not be authorized to speak for McCarthy, he fully expects the team will go after 16-0 record unlike the Colts in 2009.
“You don’t win a Super Bowl by being scared. You just play. That’s the message [McCarthy] is preaching,” Raji said. “Just play the game because . . . that’s the way you’re supposed to play it. You’re not supposed to be playing a game and looking at all of these scenarios of who you want to play. That’s not how football is supposed to be played.”
Would you like to be the one to tell Charles Woodson that he’s going to be “rested” before a bye week?
“Nothing’s going to stop this train,” Woodson said. “That’s our thought. We understand guys are going to go down. No excuses.”
