Mike McCarthy got his JPP on today.
“We fully expect to win the game,” the Packers coach said in response to comments from defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who voiced the Giants’ confidence in the upcoming meeting between the two teams.
McCarthy may be banking on a different result, but he said he does not begrudge Pierre-Paul his opinion. In fact, he said, he would have been surprised if the Giants were not in that frame of mind.
“I would expect a team that is playing in a divisional playoff round to think they should win the game,” he said. “That stuff … What are they supposed to say, that they’re going to lose? I think a guy should expect to win. That’s the National Football League.”
