Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy certainly feels strongly about the ability of backup quarterback Matt Flynn. "In my opinion, he’s ready to be an NFL starter. That’s just my opinion,” McCarthy said. “The business side will take care of itself. I don’t know what other opportunities he’ll have. If I was at a club and was looking for a good young quarterback, he’s definitely someone I’d talk to.” While the sample size is small, Flynn has fared well during his NFL career. Flynn got a chance to show what he could do when the Packers opted to rest stud Aaron Rodgers in Week 17. Flynn completed 31 of 44 passes for 480 yards and a franchise-record six touchdowns in a victory over the NFC North rival Detroit Lions.
