Many of the Detroit Lions own a reputation, sometimes deserved, for playing "chippy," "dirty," "below the belt" and other not-so-nice adjectives.
When asked about how the Green Bay Packers will respond to that in their key divisional showdown Sunday at Lambeau Field, Packers Coach Mike McCarthy made it clear how he wants his team to play: clean.
"I'm a big believer in that you've got to stay above the B.S., whether it's on the football field or in the game of life, more importantly. It's about winning," he said on "The Mike McCarthy Show" which airs on TODAY'S TMJ4 and NBC26.
"That has never prove in my time in the league that (dirty play) wins football games. The identity that you want to football team to play with, ours has always been disciplined, tough, fundamentally sound. That's what we adhere to. That's what our players are coached and trained in. That's the way we want to perform on Sundays."
