Mike McCarthy is as eager as ever to get training camp started going into his 10th season as coach of the Green Bay Packers.
Players reported on Wednesday. Most of the starters have returned from a team that came close to reaching the Super Bowl, only to collapse late in the 28-22 loss to Seattle in the NFC Championship game.
McCarthy said he was so pleased with the team's progress during offseason workouts that he hopes to get camp off to a fast start when the first practice is whistled into session on Thursday morning.
He's also dealing with uncharacteristic off-field issues for three players in unrelated cases. McCarthy said he was disappointed by the players' mistakes.
