McCarthy Sees Packers Headed In Right Direction


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Despite a bitter end to the season, the Green Bay Packers appear to be headed in the right direction as a franchise.

Now they have some big decisions to make in order to take the next step and contend for the Super Bowl next season.

In the wake of Sunday's overtime playoff loss at Arizona, Packers coach Mike McCarthy says the team has a solid foundation but will need some tweaking to become a title contender. McCarthy didn't rule out the possibility of changes to his coaching staff, and acknowledged the uncertainty the team faces with some high-profile players who are scheduled to become free agents.
