4th quarter woes puzzling to McCarthy


Green Bay, WISCONSIN  Much of the discussion outside of Green Bay is about the quarterback position and how soon Aaron Rodgers will return.

But in Wisconsin major red flags are being waved in regards to the shaky defense the Packers have played the last two weeks.

Coach Mike McCarthy identified another issue: the fourth quarter.

Sunday, they allowed the Eagles a nine and a half minute drive in the fourth, not to mention the 27 points the defense gave up before the final quarter even began.

"What I'm disappointed in, and it's gone on all year, is our 4th quarter performance. We're not playing our best football when it counts. To see it happen again Sunday is disappointing and frustrating," said McCarthy.

"We've certainly tried to address it. The last two weeks we've had 3rd down situations, 3rd and 9 a week ago and 3rd and 8 Sunday, we missed tackles in both those situations," said defensive coordinator Dom Capers.
