No Green Bay Packers head coach wants to be two games behind the Chicago Bears in the NFC North at any point in the season.
But to focus heavily on that fact after three games is not worth it, according to Packers coach Mike McCarthy.
"You worry about the race in Week 3, that's a waste of focus. We need to focus on the things we need to do better to win games," said McCarthy on Monday.
"It's not OK that we're 1-2, by no means, but we've played three games. Let's be realistic."
McCarthy talked about how his coaches will spend the next week correcting mistakes and accentuating strengths from a topsy-turvy 34-30 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
"Yesterday's games was one of those different games, as far as the way it started, the way the second and third quarter went, some of the injuries, some of the officiating," said McCarthy.
"These are the things we're going to improve on. These are the strengths we're going to continue to build on."
