Four-game winning streaks, first place in the NFC North and a 5-2 record are all well and good, but both the Green Bay Packers' head coach and veteran defensive leader reminded Packers planet that there's only one goal in mind.
"February," uttered coach Mike McCarthy in his Monday news conference, referring not to the month itself but the Super Bowl game to be played in New York City this February.
The point about the game came up when a question was asked about statistics. To that, he responded: "There's one statistic that counts, and we're working our way towards that."
Additionally, linebacker A.J. Hawk talked on the Jim Rome Show on Monday and, while discussing his pay cut to stay on the Packers, made this point:
“I’m here to win Super Bowls. Anything else is secondary, so I’m very fine with taking a little bit of a cut and I’m still having a great time.”
