The Packers have not officially named their starting quarterback for Sunday’s game against the Steelers. But it sure looks like Matt Flynn will start again, and Aaron Rodgers will miss another week.
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.
