Starter Pack: Mike McCarthy's last presser

1/21/2015

A roundup of what's happening on the Green Bay Packers beat.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Yes, the Packers' season ended with Sunday's overtime loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game, but in one way the season doesn't really end until coach Mike McCarthy puts a cap on it with his final press conference.

That takes place on Wednesday at 11 a.m. local time.

Among the questions McCarthy is likely to face include:

  • Does he regret not being more aggressive either in the first quarter when he settled for field goals or late in the game when the Packers were trying to run out the clock?

  • Why did Julius Peppers tell Morgan Burnett to take a knee on his fourth quarter interception?

  • And why did Burnett listen?

  • Why wasn't linebacker Clay Matthews in the game late in the fourth quarter yet played in overtime?

  • What changes, if any, does he have planned for his coaching staff?

  • How can they fix the problems on special teams?

This likely will be the last time McCarthy addresses reporters until next month's scouting combine in Indianapolis.

McCarthy's assistant coaches also will be available to the media on Wednesday.
