McCarthy: Questioning Packers toughness is "nonsense"

We all know that the Packers are looking to strengthen their running game in 2013, something that should help the team's image. But some people have instead decided to criticize the team for not doing this earlier and essentially calling them weak. In response to those speculations, Mike McCarthy said this. 

"I think it's a load of nonsense because I think the proof is in the pudding. If you watch the tape and the film and you win 12 games a year and you don't win the Super Bowl, people have to question something. I get that," McCarthy told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "That was the line that some people took and hey, when you play good football teams week in and week out, you're always looking for a hole in your opponent. And sometimes when people don't see too many holes, the easiest and biggest target to go after is a man's will. His toughness."

Well said. Just hoping that this thing won't be blown out of proportion.
