Mike McCarthy wants higher intensity on offense

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy reveals that he wants to see an increase in the intensity of his side's offense next season.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy has admitted that he would like to see his side run more offensive plays next season and at a quicker pace.

The Packers struggled for consistency on their offense in the 2013 campaign as quarterback Aaron Rodgers missed seven games with a broken collarbone.

However, with Rodgers's return to health along with several other key players, McCarthy believes that his side are due an improvement and wants to see a change in their intensity.

McCarthy told reporters: "We've always been a fast-tempo offense. To me, there are two approaches to playing the game of football. Historically, in my opinion because I don't want to offend anybody, defensive coaches want to slow the game down, run the ball, shorten the game.

"Your offensive coaches more want to pick it up. I've always been of the belief of getting as many shots as you can, so we've always emphasised playing as fast as you can.

"When you have as many three-down players as you can possibly have, obviously your substitution patterns are cleaner. You're not subbing because you have to, you're subbing just when you need to."

The Packers ranked third in total offense in the NFL despite their injury problems.
