It didn’t take long for Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy to go public with comments about the release of the NFL schedule tonight.

McCarthy’s comments were issued this evening by the Packer PR department.

The following are the comments as released by the Packers:

(on playing in the NFL opener in Seattle)

“It’s a tremendous opportunity for our football team. We have experience playing in the kickoff opener three years ago, and we will draw on that. Obviously, being the visiting team this time presents new challenges. It will help sharpen our focus even more during training camp and the preseason.”


(on whether talk of the “Fail Mary” rematch will create a distraction)

“This game won’t be about the past. It will be about the 2014 Green Bay Packers.”


(on playing three consecutive division games in 12 days in Weeks 3-5)

“Two of our division opponents have new head coaches, so that’s an added challenge, but division games always carry extra importance, no matter when they’re played. We played three in a row late in the season two years ago, and that was a key stretch in our season. This will be no different.”


(on being scheduled for five prime-time games)

“It’s an honor. I know our fans around the world always appreciate the chance to watch us on national TV. Playing under the lights always adds to the atmosphere at Lambeau Field, and on the road.”


(on having the bye right in the middle, after eight games)

“Ideally, that’s how you draw it up. It will be a great time to re-evaluate and re-charge heading into November and December football.”


(on coming out of the bye with four home games in five weeks)

“That’s a potential plus, but we have to be in position to take advantage of it. That will be the third quarter of our season and it will be important to make the most of playing at home during that stretch.”
