Mike McCarthy expects "fun" game next Monday night


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Mike McCarthy has no interest in revisiting or rehashing the details of last year's messy divorce between the Green Bay Packers and the player who once was considered the face of the franchise, Brett Favre.

The Packers coach could do without a week's worth of media hype leading up to Monday night's showdown with Favre's new team, the Minnesota Vikings, at the Metrodome next week. But McCarthy is looking forward to facing his former quarterback on the field.

McCarthy expects the matchup with Minnesota to be competitive and "a lot of fun," provided he can steer his players through the extra media attention they're certain to receive.
