By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Dec 29, 2013 - UPDATED: Dec 29, 2013

Here are Mike McCarthy's first comments, exclusively on 620WTMJ, after the Packers' division championship-clinching 33-28 win over Chicago.

- On the nature of the emotional win
"Just the way you want it, I would think.  I can't say enough about our football team, the pride I have in them, just to keep battling...such a special group."

- On his team's tenacity
"We knew we were going up against an excellent opponent on the road.  Our guys just fight, fight, fight...it's remarkable.  It was a pressure game from start to finish...I can't say enough about our football team."

- On Rodgers and Cob, the combo who created the division-clinching TD pass
"Both guys were major contributors."
