Friday Wisconsin Sports UPDATE


Here is the latest Wisconsin sports from The AP

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy says there's one thing his staff isn't spending time on while getting ready for Saturday's playoff game with Seattle. McCarthy says he and his assistants haven't watched film of quarterback Brett Favre's playoff appearances since coach Mike Holmgren left to joint the Seahawks. According to McCarthy, those games don't factor into the way the team is playing now, or the way Favre is playing with a different offensive style.
