Off-season schedule has thrown wrinkles into McCarthy's QB school

(WNFL)- Green Bay Packers' coach Mike McCarthy has tried not to be too publicly critical of the league's new schedule for off-season practices. McCarthy used to run a quarterback school in March for his signal-callers -- something that could have really helped younger players like Scott Tolzien. The ex-Badger is in his first spring with the Pack, after three years mainly with San Francisco. At the recent owners' meetings, McCarthy said Tolzien was in Green Bay in March but he couldn't go inside the Don Hutson Center to throw. The coach said it was a "different era training quarterbacks and specialists." That era is the product of the league's collective bargaining agreement with its players' union. It spells out exactly when and how long off-season workouts can run -- and what can be done at those sessions. Baltimore coach John Harbaugh told ESPN that the limits were not quote, "thought through enough during negotiations" on the new bargaining agreement.
