Mike McCarthy Press Conf. Transcript - Nov. 5

Posted Nov 5, 2010


(How did Daryn look today?)
Daryn Colledge looked fine today. Coming off of yesterday, he had a lot of improvement. So we’ll see how he sees tomorrow. I’m hoping he’ll be able to start.

(Is your concern with him over?)
Tomorrow will answer that question. I think anytime you have an injury and a player comes off of not practicing and then practicing, it’s really the next day is the true indication. Knowing Daryn’s history, I anticipate that he will go.

(How did Clay respond to the way you used him this week?)
Just being smart with Clay, and it’s important for him to get the jog-through and the mental work. We’re just taking a cautious approach. He’ll be ready to go Sunday.

(What do you think you’ll do at kick returner?)
We’ve worked those guys all week. Frankly I need to sit down with Shawn and we need to make some decisions on a number of things. Kickoff return, as far as if we’re going to bring Al and Atari up. That’s really what our 1 o’clock meeting is for. Ted Thompson, he’s been on the road scouting, so he’s back in town and Ted and I will also sit down, and frankly, you wait until Saturday to do that. It’s just smart business. Those are the decisions that will be talked about this afternoon, and we’ll finalize those with the players in the morning.

(Are you leaning more toward bringing those guys up?)
We’ll have those conversations today. I’m not going to get into ifs and buts and percentages. I feel good about the body of work of the team this week.

(How much was Pickett able to do today?)
Ryan looked the best he’s looked in a number of weeks. A lot like last week, if he responds after treatment, we’ll look at him tomorrow. I’d much rather make the decision tomorrow than to wait until Sunday night and do a pre-game workout. We worked him extensively today. Mike Trgovac put him through a number of drills and specific things to test the ankle. We’ll see how he is in the morning.

(Barnett is a big loss, but what have you thought of Hawk and Bishop together as the full-time duo?)
I like what A.J. Hawk and Desmond Bishop have done so far. I think A.J. has been extremely consistent. He has excellent command of the defense, and Desmond, he’s making plays. You always appreciated Desmond’s anticipation and his ability to tackle and make plays. He’s a good pressure player. But those two have been very consistent for us. Very pleased with their production and performance.

(Where is Starks at after two weeks?)
James looks good. He’s a talented young man, and we’re excited to get him back out there, but he’s very young. He has a lot to learn. Just the opportunity to go through a week’s practice, game plan, this has been a very good experience for him. But he has missed so much time. There’s so much fundamental work that he needs to benefit from.

(Where is Quarless right now?)
He did not practice today, had a little bit of a setback after practicing yesterday. We’ll see how he is tomorrow, but like I said, he took a step backwards today.
