Coach Mike McCarthy: "We didn't play very well on defense, so we need to coach better, we need to play better and we'll do better. The ability to get more athletic and the ability to have the pass rush from inside and outside was a focus, and I think that was reflected in the people we acquired in free agency and the draft."

GM Ted Thompson: "It's horrible. I'm not my father's son anymore because my father's very frugal. It's pathetic. But in this case, I felt like it was appropriate. I felt like we had a good, solid team, and I felt like if we knew we were getting quality, we should try to do it. So we made three trades up."
