Although Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy sounded more optimistic this week than he has in past weeks, Flynn still got most of the snaps with the first-string offense this week.
The Packers’ website noted “pessimism” about Rodgers’ status, while Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com said it sure looks like another week of Flynn as the starter. A source told Adam Schefter that the only way Rodgers will play on Sunday is if something significantly changes with the doctor.
And so as the Packers continue to fight for a playoff spot, it appears it will be Flynn leading the charge. The good news for Green Bay is that with Flynn at the helm, the Packers have won two in a row, and if they win two more in a row, they win the NFC North. But they’d feel a lot better about their odds if they had Rodgers.
