The fact that Flynn is the choice does not surprise me in the least. MM loves to have people who know the system. He kept Kuhn because he doesn't have to coach a newbie.

He wanted Pickett back and Jolly back for the same reason.

All the practice squad guys were ours. That would not be so unusual except, some have been there more than once so why are they with us and not replaced with people who have abilities.

It all comes down to one coach keeping players and not looking for play makers.

My gutt says this year Ted and Mike get bit in the arse for keeping too many what if players and not going free agency other than an old Peppers.

Apparently some people don't get the salary cap and the money it takes to sign high priced free agents. Guess they should do a little research to find out why the Packers are one of the best sports franchises around.

I agree that many people do not, but we really need a DL. I would love to trade for a DL veteran (or get one in FA if we can find one). That would also give us help this year and would offer long-term protection in case we lose Raji. It just makes sense.

I have no idea why some people here are so high on flynn.
he got lucky last year and had a lot of help. he is not a player in my eyse.
bad move to keep him in the mix, tolzien is so much moore a qb and gives you a way better chance to win.

flynn basically had one great game.........an thats about it. he makes a living out these 6tds and he will never do someting noticeably ever again.
its a fairy tail that he saved the season last year. We got lucky and flynn got lucky even more.
tolzien on the other hand is a qb with a future. A bright one if he gets half of flynns luck. and if you cant see this you pretty blind.
No idea what you meant with "more points in the pre".....thats a joke right?

go pack go from germany
