Highlights from Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthyís end-of-the season press conference on Wednesday:

*Finishing season with win, I donít know how Iím going to handle all of these positive questions. Great time for organization. Great to interact with fans. Been overwhelming, Parade into Lambeau and the event yesterday. Weíre just starting to go through evaluation process. New season has begun for myself and (general manager)Ted Thompson.

*(Wide receiver) Jordy Nelson had bursa sac injury to knee. He will be fine. Significant injury he fought through in 4th quarter and played through.

*Donít anticipate (left tackle Chad) Clifton having surgery on knees. Charles Woodson wonít need surgery on his collar bone.

*Approach of coaching staff in our meeting yesterday, we have to prepare for the now. First order of business is draft. This year we will concentrate on draft immediately with our staff, make it a higher priority. Will forge through scheme evaluation.

*Itís an honor that they would consider naming a street after me.

*Sat down with (defensive coordinator) Dom Capers this morning, went through evaluation. Take a lot of time as far as re-evaluation of what we do. Already started reviewing Super Bowl week structure. We felt we hit the mark on our preparation. We were nervous not going down there until we absolutely had to because of our excellent facility here. Did not want to disrupt that. Part of reason why I started work week so late. Also wanted people to have time to handle administrative duties. Our plan is we hit the target, 90% of work done before we arrived in Texas.

*Donít have anything today about a contract extension for me. Time will determine that.

*Likely will go to White House sometime this spring. No date yet.

*(Wide receiver) Donald Driver would probably not be able to play if we had game. (Cornerback Sam) Shields shoulder sprain. Jordy bursa. (Linebacker A.J.) Hawk wrist injury, will have scope on that.

*Not going to get into whether I have had calls about assistant coaches.
