McCarthy stresses positives after loss to Vikings

Published On: Jan 01 2013 09:31:48 AM CST

GREEN BAY, Wis. -

As disappointing as their loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday had been -- especially since it cost them the NFC's No. 2 seed and a first-round playoff bye -- the Green Bay Packers had no time to feel sorry for themselves.

With those same Vikings coming to Lambeau Field on Saturday night for an NFC wild card game, the work week is already underway. And coach Mike McCarthy as already stressing the positives.

"It's the playoffs. It doesn't matter who we play, where we play them. We feel confident that we're going to get it done and do whatever we need to get it done."

While the onward-and-upward theme was predictable -- "We have no choice at this point," defensive tackle B.J. Raji correctly pointed out -- it was also necessary with the shortened work week.
