Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy would like to run 75 offensive plays per game this upcoming season so the opponents would have less time to adjust. "I've always been of the belief of getting as many shots as you can, so we've always emphasized playing as fast as you can. When you have as many three-down players as you can possibly have, obviously your substitution patterns are cleaner. You're not subbing because you have to, you're subbing just when you need to," McCarthy said. The team ran an average of 67.125 plays per game in 2013, which ranked 11th in the NFL.

Green Bay Packers LB Nick Perry (undisclosed) has not been able to practice at all during the team's offseason activities. "I don't think it helps any player to miss a whole offseason," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Tuesday following the first practice of minicamp. "I talked about it last week with the staff. I told the team about it today. Our coaching staff took a different approach. You're accustomed to being a 15-week program. Obviously we're in a nine-week program going on here in Year 4 [of the new CBA]. To get all that work done, nothing changes. You have a season to get ready for. You have this much work. And to do it all in a nine-week period, and for a player to miss all of it, obviously it's not a good situation to be in.
