Notes from Mike McCarthy's press conference today

CREATED Oct 24, 2012

Mike McCarthy addressed the media this afternoon in the media auditorium at Lambeau Field. Below are some of the notable notes.

  • Driver did not participate, Finley was limited, Kuhn DNP, Lang limited, Nelson limited, Perry DNP, Raji DNP, Shields DNP, Woodson OUT.
  • Jennings is receiving second opinion on groin...still waiting for more information.
  • Jordy's hamstring flared up during practice - he was limited.
  • Staying true to the film on Jacksonville. It's an uncommon opponent, with a new coaching staff. Expecting to see unscouted looks.
  • What they se
  • Jacksonville has a good front line on defense. Technically, they are sound and very physical. This week is all about learning about some 'new faces' on the Jaguars roster.
  • When asked what is different about AJ Hawk this year, McCarthy said, "his haircut".
  • He went on to say that Hawk is the same guy day in and day out. A very consistent player who is having a very nice season.
  • Hayward got his hands on the ball a couple more times today. His natural ball skills are outstanding, and he has been helped tremendously by Joe Whitt. Very poised for a rookie DB.
  • Woodson has been at the facility non-stop. Spending time in training room and helping others adjust to greater role.
  • Practice was shortened today due to the medical situation.
  • Eric Walden earned the game ball on defense after Rams game. He's been consistent and having his best year in Green Bay.

Now off to the locker room to budge my way between reporters standing in front of Aaron Rodgers locker. Apologies for spelling errors.
