McCarthy had a lot of great quotes in response to Jason Wilde of ESPNMilwaukee, but they can be summed up in one word: Championship.
âWe have a lot of confidence in the way we run our program, and weâre always trying to make it better. And I think skeet shooting is going to be the difference in us getting back to the Super Bowl. So there," McCarthy said.
Awesome. For those new to the story, let's back up for a minute. Earlier this offseason, Schwartz said that the Lions couldn't afford to waste any allotted practice days.
âWe had no sporting clays today or no amusement parks or water parks," Schwartz said.
"I donât really worry about what other people do. I donât pay much attention to their clips. Like every team, you have media clips put on your desk every day, and I donât really pay (attention to) mine. I worry about whoâs playing for them and how theyâre playing and what we need to do to beat them,â McCarthy said.
Translation: We're in your head. Keep our name out of your mouth.
âTheir approach is really tailored to the way they go about their business, starting with their head coach,â McCarthy said. âI donât know what the problem with skeet shooting is; I thought that was probably one of the best events weâve ever had here.â
Translation: The Lions are undisciplined, like their coach.
âJust the interaction with the policemen and the players was excellent. You were literally handed a gun, pulled the trigger and handed it back to the police officer. That part of it was in place for the safety,â McCarthy said.
Translation: When we interact with cops, our players don't end up in handcuffs.
