Game Notes:

 

———————————————

Mike McCarthy Pregame Show on 620 WTMJ:

 

Big Win: The best part is we were able to play a complete sixty minutes and excelled in all three phases of the game. Easily our best performance of the year.

Moving forward:   Consistency is a big part of our business. We’ve been able to do that in the past. it’s time for this 2012 team to do the same.

B Jones / Hayward: They both have practiced hard and are ready to go. Jones is extremely consistent and dependable and he has had a great week of practice. Casey keeps getting better with each opportunity. the game will dictate what we do but I look for both of these guys to play an important role.

Rams a year later: There’s a lot of things different. Their talent level has definitely increased. Their younger players and draft picks are playing well. Jeff Fisher is clearly one of the best coaches in our league.

Ram’s’ Defense: Good depth on the DL, very aggressive on the front seven. It’s a defense that will definitely challenge us today.

Bradford: He”s had a challenge of going through different systems. he’s now in a QB-friendly system that I think he can propser in.

RB Daryl Richards0n: From Abilene Christian – he’s explosive. Watched the Sunday night game against the Cardinals – he definitely jumped out at me.

3rd week on the road: Don’t get me wrong, it will be good to be home next week, but we don’t mind these 55 minute flights.

Packers vs. Rams – First Impressions – First Half:

Packers win the toss and defer.

Rams show early the Packers can expect a heavy diet of running plays. At least as long as the game is close.
