Mike McCarthy Pregame Show on 620 WTMJ:


Opening day: It’s very special – just to be able to hear the drums outside sitting in your office, looking forward to that lambeau atmosphere. We’re excited to get started

Do you have a special team? Well, you definitely think you do. I go back to an old Ron Wolfism – the bad teams don’t even know they’re bad at the beginning of the year. We have a very difficult matchup, but we’re excited to go for this victory and grow as a team

Successful camp?: Very much so. Look at our roster, our players went through a thorough and rough camp, as far as what we were able to achieve and install. I feel we’re very well prepared.

Unscouted looks: The flow of the game dictates that. I’m not obsessed with the first 15 plays, as has been the case with this offense. – I let the game take me where it takes me.

SF: Very good football team. Playing them the prior 2 years, a team that always has a number iof talented playetrs. It will be interesting to see which way their offense goes with ther new additions, but surely their defense is what they hang their hat on.

Willis & Bowman: It’s a defense with a number of playmakers, a very stout front. It will be a challenge to run the footbnall, but it’s something we will have to do today.

Alex Smith & new targets: I would expect them to be more diverse. Smith has a litle more playmaking ability than peeople realize. Cerebral and a very good athlete.

SF-GB: There are going to be a lot of good football players on that field today. This game has everything you’re looking for
