Matt Flynn Gets Starters Reps at Packers Practice

Matt Flynn Gets Starters Reps at Packers Practice

After a brief moment of jubilation in learning that Aaron Rodgers practiced for the first time on Tuesday since breaking his collarbone, the air was let out of the balloon by Packers head coach Mike McCarthy.

In response to yesterday's comments that Rodgers' odds of playing in Thursday's Thanksgiving game against the Lions was "slim to none," McCarthy said on Tuesday that it was "closer to none."

The Packers head coach also acknowledged that Flynn received repetitions as the starter at quarterback, as the team prepares to play without Aaron Rodgers, and goes with Flynn in favor of backup Scott Tolzien.

Flynn or Tolzein doesn't matter. Either way Green Bay is going to win this game!! I have an inkling though not having Franklin hurts us big time.

Sorry there Shankman, but, there's a good chance that 'Scotty' never sees another snap as a GB Packer. Flynn will probably be resigned & become the long term back-up to AR. Teams just can't afford to use a roster spot for someone who's unlikely to ever play.

I would not be surprised to see Flynn creamed on the first series and Tolzien play the rest of the game..... the way things have been going for the Pack, this is not out of the realm of reality at all

You're as good at making predictions as I am.
So............

Longshanks's picture

It's not a prediction Cow, it's an inkling. There's a difference. It's something I can't explain. I just know we are going to win this. Never felt this before this strong.

Yes you did. --- Last week.

Cow42's picture

Aaaaaaaaaand the Giants game.

Longshanks's picture

Yeah, I know I did but this is different. I have a fever about this game and I need more cowbell damnit!! I just know the Packers will win this one. You have to believe me on this.

Josh Sitton purposely has called Jim Schwartz "a dick" so this is definately going to be a war and the Packers are the ones picking the fight. They want this one bad!!

Never, ever bet against an inkling which is different and more powerful than a feeling....but still below the highest form of communication man can receive...the spirit message.

Longshanks's picture

You are correct Fishcrane!! Agree 100%.

Well that's fine with me having three pro bowl type quarterbacks. I totally understand you can't keep three great ones so one must go. Whatever they do they must stick it to the other team and get as much as they can for either Tolzein or Flynn. Both are hot commodities on the open market. I am pretty sure some teams are drooling over getting one of these two.

You must be joking. If Flynn or Tolzien weren't playing for GB, I'm not sure either would be on any roster. They've both been dumped more than once by other teams.

They're better than BJ, Young, Harrell & Wallace. That's about it.

Longshanks's picture

It's real simple. If Flynn wins he signs a mulit million dollar deal to be our backup to Rodgers for as long as Rodgers plays. If Flynn loses than the Packers sign Tolzein to a multimillion dollar deal and Flynn probably goes plays for Jacksonville or Houston. It's a win win .

Take a lesson from him as the three of them host the trophy in New York City come February.

...this is the funniest and greatest comment ever on CHTV...

UP-Packer's picture

Per Mac ---- (on GB's run defense after giving up 232 yards to the Vikes)

"When you create leverage and fit in run defense, that's where the play starts, that's not where it ends. We just didn't do a very good job finishing once the leverage and the fit was established."

Translation: "We can't tackle worth a $hit."

The bad tackling rears its ugly head once again.

RunAndHyde's picture

Our secondary gets worse every day ...Megatron might have a seasons worth of yards on Thursday. Yes it matters who is under center for us,and if you don't think it matters you are stupid! We lose this game, and I believe we lose it in embarrassing fashion........damn I hate how much I sound like cow.

Cow42's picture

What's the record for most yards given up in a single game?

RunAndHyde's picture

Ask me Thursday evening lol

4thand1's picture

Your giving the Lions way to much credit. Its the Lions and Schwartz, not New England.

Cow42's picture

There doesn't need to be any sort of plan other than "throw ball to Megatron".

Answer this question...

Ball in the air.
Standing in the endzone are...

Megatron
Shields
House
Jennings
Burnett
Bush
Williams

What's the most likely result?

Exactly.

"Megatron might have a seasons worth of yards on Thursday"

C'mon, don't be so dramatic, I bet he only gets around 600 yds... Hardly a seasons worth.

Cow42's picture

Fine - a Finley season's worth of yards.

RunAndHyde's picture

Lmao baaaaazingggg!

you forgot the 'A' at the end of the baaaaazingggg...
Should be baaaaazinggggAaaa...

I hate Sheldon.....therefore I dropped the a. The woman playin poker on the Doritos commercial says bazing as she slow rolls her hand that's where I got it from.

UP-Packer's picture

Well, Josh, what do you think of your next opponent, the Lions?

"..... They’re a bunch of dirtbags or scumbags. I mean, that’s just how they play. That’s how they’re coached......That starts with their head coach, Schwartz. He’s a dick, too. ....They’re all just scumbags and so are the D-line."

No, really Josh, what do you think of the Lions?

Longshanks's picture

As George Carlin once said, "at least he's honest". lol

Point Packer's picture

The Lions have ascended to be my least favorite team in the NFC North. The Vikings are bad to the point of being emasculated. The Bears are awful, but without Cutler back there its hard to really dislike anybody else that much, well except for Marshall.

The Lions have a parade of dicks: Schwartz, Su, Raiola, that drunk frat boy idiot at QB etc.

Ironically, their best player (Megatron), going outside the star receiver stereotype, seems to be somewhat normal and dare I say, humble?

Unless A-Rodge pulls a Walt Frazier: Lions 34 - Packers 20. And I hope to hell I am wrong.

Point Packer's picture

I meant "Suh" - doesn't deserve to have his name spelled correctly.

Longshanks's picture

You fucking bastard!! How dare you go against the Packers. You have alot of fucking nerve!!
