Packers coach Mike McCarthy was asked at the Scouting Combine if his team has grown soft. McCarthy was asked what it says that the Packers are more of a passing team than a running team offensively, and that they’ve struggled at times to stop the run defensively. Allowing 579 yards and 45 points in a postseason loss to the 49ers has raised questions about the Packers’ defense, and McCarthy acknowledged that they have work to do. McCarthy's wife, Amanda, was among the skeptics after watching him drift in and out of sleep for a week in the hospital. He struck out four batters in two innings and looked fully recovered from the incident that forced him to undergo emergency brain surgery and jeopardized his baseball career and his life in September.
