Giants 37, Packers 20: Post-Game Reactions From Mike McCarthy And Aaron Rodgers

It is tough to come out of Lambeau Field with a victory, especially in the playoffs during the winter months when the Green Bay Packers most seem to be in their element. During Sunday's NFC Divisional playoff loss to the New York Giants, it was the Packers who seemed out of sorts, however, coughing up the football three times and notching eight dropped passes on the night.

Head coach Mike McCarthy said after the game that his team had done a good job of preparation the week before the game, and even spent extra time making sure they handled the football properly in the cold weather.

"The turnover ratio was something we take a lot of pride, something we spend a lot of time in," McCarthy said. We've been excessive frankly, handling the football in the winter weather preparing for the opportunity in playoff games, and we did not do a very good job handling the football."

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers echoes his head coach's sentiments on his team's preparation, while expressing his disappointment in falling short of the Super Bowl coming of a 15-1 regular season record.

"You forget about how bad this feeling is," Rodgers said. "We had it after the 2009 season when we lost to Arizona, it sucks."

He added:

"[It's] dissapointing, because every year is unique to itself and different guys, different oppsortunities. ... So that's probably the most disappointing thing, to stand in there knowing that is probably your last time together with these guys."
