McCarthy Still Pissed About Loss To Giants

Like most of us who feel like last season was a complete and total waste, Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy is still pissed off his team lost to the obviously inferior New York Giants.

Any given Sunday, right Mike? Not really.

McCarthy firmly believes the Packers beat themselves. Their bumbling four turnovers and inability to tackle anyone would seem to support that theory.

“I felt in ’07, we were beaten in the overtime game, they made one more big play than we did,” McCarthy said, referencing that season’s Packers-Giants NFC title game. “And for them to go on the road, I don’t want this to come out the wrong way, because that win is special, that’s a great win for their football team. The margin of victory they won with, too, is definitely to their credit. But I feel like we beat ourselves in this playoff game. Or better yet, we didn’t give ourselves a chance to win the game.

“The ’07 game was a heck of a football game and they made one more play than we did. We didn’t give ourselves a chance to win this one. You’d rather someone beat you.”

Certainly, you’d probably also rather that someone wasn’t a team led by a doofus like Eli Manning.

    Yeah I hate both the mannings. I hope they shut the giants out this year. Giants got so lucky last season. They won’t even make the playoffs this year.

    Giants didn’t get lucky last year. They were hot in the playoffs, and the Packers were not. That’s what it is all about. The Packers probably beat the Giants 7 out of 10 times under normal circumstances, but it would still have been tough to win the Superbowl with a defense as bad as ours was last year.

    A doofus that has more Superbowl wins than Erin. According to what genius Packers have been saying the last few years, that should automatically make him the superior quarterback. Not my words, yours.

      that doofus was missing playoffs like his passes were missing recievers, now his defense sacks guys 4 times a game, he’s all of a sudden “elite”…smh

    It never used to be about the ‘hottest’ team winning. It used to be about a dominating defense and a strong and balanced offensive attack. Remember the 90s? Not just for the Packers but the 49ers, Cowboys…those were balanced and highly ranked teams on both sides of the ball. We need to get that defensive ranking back up to top 5 or top 10 and we should be right back where we belong.
