After the Packers' 19-17 win over the Baltimore Ravens, 620WTMJ/NBC26's Larry McCarren talked exclusively with the coach of the Green Bay Packers. Mike McCarthy.
Here are McCarthy's comments:
On the happy scene after the game:
"This is a great locker room. These are the times you always remember...great locker room. Lot of fun. An incredible football game, one of the most challenging, adverse regular season games I've ever been a part of."
On how the players responded to Randall Cobb, James Jones being knocked out of the game with injuries:
"It's a credit to the players. Our staff did a good job making adjustments on the sideline."
"I thought Aaron did a great job managing the football game...our line did a hell of a job. Eddie stayed patient. The clutch pass plays in the end. The defense played remarkable all game. I can't say enough about our defense."
On how the theme of the week was made reality:
"Our message was true grit. We had a whole bunch of it today."
On the condition of Cobb and Jones:
"They were both very positive with me, but they always are. I'm the last guy and the worst guy to ask a player how he's doing. We'll hopefully have more information tomorrow."
