The Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy believes in his team just as any coach should. But with a shaky defense all season, many wondered and questioned whether the Packers are a tough team. And after allowing 45 points and 500+ yards to the San Francisco 49ers in the playoffs, many are convinced the Packers are just a passing team with no physicality on either side of the ball.
McCarthy was quick to make it clear that that is no the case.
“To me, we’re a physical, tough football team,” McCarthy said, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “I totally disagree. I don’t know how you can put the tape on and say the Green Bay Packers aren’t physical.”
“How do we play any different from the approach, the identity today that we did in 2010?” he said. “How do you swing that far? You don’t go from here to here.”
While I cant be upset at a coach backing his team, the questions about the Packers physicality have some merit in my eyes.
With a porous offensive line and a defense that couldn’t stop a nose bleed, one has to wonder how they can be considered physical.

According to Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the Packers may try to move OL Bryan Bulaga to left tackle in next season.

If the Green Bay Packers plan to ask tight end Jermichael Finley to take less money for next season, that topic will apparently be a nonstarter.
"I'd have to walk, for sure, meaning I couldn't take a pay cut," Finley told ESPN's Josina Anderson. "Maybe I'd restructure if it's a deal that I like and it makes sense, but I'm not the guy that&...
It's still early in the NFL offseason, but the Green Bay Packers' roster has gotten younger in a hurry. During the past month, the team has cleared out its three oldest players with the release of Charles Woodson and the retirements of Donald Driver and Jeff Saturday.

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley has the third-highest salary cap number on the team for 2013, and is willing to restructure his contract, as long as it doesn't include a pay cut. Head coach Mike McCarthy wants him back, and Finley wants to come back.
Depth at cornerback could enable the Packers to move Davon House to safety
The release of Charles Woodson leaves a potential hole in the secondary heading into the 2013 season. And while both M.D. Jennings and Jerron McMillian played a significant number of snaps in 2012 and both showed potential, there’s no guarantee that either youngster is ready to be a full-time starter.

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley told ESPN’s Josina Anderson that the Packers haven’t told him anything yet regarding his future.
“The Packers are barely talking to me right now. I know they’re just doing it the Packer way and playing it close to the vest.,” said Finley.
“I haven’t got a call. I haven’t got a text asking me to take a pay cut or to restructure...
The Green Bay Packers are normally very quiet during the NFL free agency. They concern themselves with re-signing their own guys. The players they have drafted and developed and have earned a second contract with the team. Those are the players championship teams are built with and those are the players Green Bay spends money on.
