Mike McCarthy Press Conf. Transcript - Sept. 25

Posted Sep 25, 2010


(How does Chad Clifton look today?)
Chad was in a limited practice mode today. He came off of yesterday’s practice feeling OK, so we’ll see how he gets through the next 50 hours.

(You have no more concerns about Daryn?)
Well, Daryn … I didn’t have all the information when I stood here yesterday. I feel a lot better about him today than I did yesterday. I think he’s going to be OK.

(Jones came back after that knee. Has he just not progressed?)
Brad Jones? Brad Jones, he’s struggling a little bit the last couple days. We’re going to have to give him a chance here throughout tomorrow and Monday to see if he’ll be ready to go. He’s gotten better each day, but he’s struggling right now.

(Are you thinking Chad and Daryn will start?)
Really, Chad Clifton is our starting left tackle, and if Chad is ready to go, he’ll play there and our rotation will be the same as it’s been. It’s a medical decision. He’s in the stage of his career that his particular knee situation is a little bit unpredictable, so we’ll see how he is Monday.

(The players have said they don’t like the wait and all the buildup before playing on Monday night. How do you feel about it?)
Monday night, that’s probably one of the negatives, the day. Monday is a long day. You try to be very smart with your time. It’s exciting once the ball’s kicked off, but I do echo their sentiments. This is the game of the week to play in, but if you take today’s practice -- it’s a Saturday, but we’re in a Friday mode, and their energy level was very high, because their clock is telling them it’s time to play a game. So it’s a long week.

(Where are you at with the D-line, with Neal’s situation and Ryan’s?)
I think Ryan’s going to be OK. We’re just being smart with him. Mike just doesn’t look like he’s quite ready. Probably very similar to where we were last week.

(You’ve had a lot of success against division teams. Is there something you can point to?)
Well, they’re important games, and we go about it with high importance. We spend extra time on our division opponents in the offseason, which I’m sure every NFL club does. We just try to focus on our opponents with the offseason studies and apply it in our training camp, and we’ve been fortunate to play big in these big games. Your path is through the ability to win games in the division. On top of it this is such a great rivalry. It’s exciting to be able to get down there and play Monday night. But there’s no secret, football is still football.
