Packers bench Tolzien for Matt Flynn


With Scott Tolzien struggling through his second start with the Packers, head coach Mike McCarthy made a quarterback change, pulling Tolzien in favor of veteran Matt Flynn in the third quarter of Sunday’s game at Green Bay.

Flynn entered the game with the Packers trailing 20-7. Tolzien, who had started the game in good-enough form, was not effective for much of second and third quarters, completing just 7-of-17 passes for 98 yards.

Flynn completed 2-of-3 passes for four yards on his first drive, which ended in a punt. The drive started promisingly, with James Starks breaking a 34-yard run. However, the march stalled soon thereafter.

The Vikings lead 20-7 in Green Bay at the end of the third quarter.

    You can keep Flynn too >.>

    I mean this in the nicest way, Rodgers is a phenomenal QB and the Vikings deserve no praise at all, but you’re not a whole lot better than we are with no QB. Please stop the talk of “our coach makes all players into HoF’ers.”

    all I heard all week was tolizen was the 2nd coming of the messiah and that he was going to throw for 400 yards and 3 or 4 tds, yep funny how he got replaced with a dude who has a weaker arm then ponder

    Too little too late.

    This defense has no heart, no desire. A lot of jobs will be different next year. Keep the faith Packers fans!

    Losing out could be the best thing to happen to GB.

    A new coaching staff should be welcomed and this implosion is the perfect reason to do it.

    Keep Thompson, fire everyone else. Oh, and maybe give a butt-kicking to the strength and conditioning coach on his way out.

    Once again Vince Young is wondering what needs to happen to get his phone to ring.

    What was YOUR favorite Scott Tolzien moment?

    In the absence of Rodgers it’s apparent how lacking in talent the Packers are.

    Wow! This is an eye opener …

    Vikings seem to be playing better than the normally do however … give them credit.

    Doesn’t look too good — that’s ok — a high draft pick and reload for 2014.

    Congrats to the Vikes.

    It was a cold day in hell at Lambeau.

    Once again the Packers genius in being totally unprepared for the possibility of Rodgers getting hurt shows itself. I mean really, in today’s NFL who expects a QB to get injured anyway.

    Here we go packers here we go! Here we go packers here we go!

    Matt “The franchise” Flynn lead the almighty green bay packers to two td drives here and brought the game so much closer!

    Come on pack! I know you can stop my Vikings, and get the ball back and score a td! You have to! We all know you can stop the worst team in the league!

    Here we go packers here we go!

    On a side note….

    Claymaker has such beautiful hair.. I love his long flowing blonde lockes! I really would like to know what conditioner he uses… It’s such beautiful hair

    How long are we going to put up with this pitiful tackling? week after week same crap. I could run for a td and I am 69.
