Mike McCarthy was a man with few complaints Monday, a day after his Green Bay Packers finished up the regular season by thrashing the Arizona Cardinals 33-7.

And why would he have many gripes?

Charles Woodson will have to cover Larry Fitzgerald again on Sunday and will be doing it with Kurt Warner slinging it instead of Matt Leinart.

 His team enters the NFC playoffs having won seven of its past eight, with no major injury concerns and fresh off a blowout victory over the team it will open the postseason against Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

“I feel very good about our football team,” McCarthy told reporters in Green Bay during his day-after-game news conference. “It’s like anything you’re trying to build as far as the vision, the plan. I like the way our football team looks right now. I like the energy they’re playing with, I like the way they prepare, and I like the way they’re focused.”

They’re also the NFC’s best team – at least by record – over the second half of the season. Philadelphia has the second-best mark at 6-2 since the midpoint, but lost its regular-season finale to Dallas, which carries a three-game winning streak into the postseason.

Not many saw a 7-1 finish coming after an eye-opening 38-28 loss at Tampa Bay left the Packers at .500 and any thoughts of a playoff run seeming a bit far-fetched.    Full story here
