Green Bay Packers expected to re-sign Matt Flynn, but why?

How fast have the Green Bay Packers fallen, and so quickly. A  franchise that had arguably the best quarterback in the league under center just weeks ago, to a club which has already named a quarterback, Scott Tolzien, a player off their practice squad as the starter this coming Sunday. Now it appears that Matt Flynn will come full circle and land back in Green Bay. The Packers...

Mike McCarthy names Scott Tolzien starting QB vs. Giants

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It didn't take Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy long after Sunday's loss to pick a new starting quarterback for next week's game. "I'll tell you right now, Scott Tolzien will start against the New York Giants, so we'll answer that question right here," McCarthy said at his postgame press conference. The day started with Seneca...

Packers QB leaves game with injury

Packers quarterback Seneca Wallace left Sunday's game with the Philadelphia Eagles with a groin injury, and his return was questionable. That left Green Bay with Scott Tolzien at quarterback with Aaron Rodgers already out with a left collarbone injury. Wallace, like Rodgers in last week's loss to the Bears, left after the first series. He appeared to get hurt after being...

Aaron Rodgers experience less and less pain

If you listen to Aaron Rodgers weekly radio show, you may have been a little excited at what he had to say regarding his return. "I would like to be back this week," Rodgers said on ESPN540 Milwaukee. " Now whether that's realistic or not remains to be seen. I would never rule myself out on a Tuesday. Now, Mike probably already has, I think." ...

Halftime: Packers 3, Eagles 10

This game could easily be 20-10 Packers... Instead, we head into halftime down 10-3 Scott Tolzien was unexpectedly thrown into the fire immediately today. And all in all, he has answered the bell! If not for his one miscue - an INT on poor ball thrown behind Jordy Nelson in the end zone - he would be just about perfect. Well, as perfect as we can expect from a guy who took...

Looking Ahead to Sunday

Here come those pesky Packers. The problem with Green Bay is that sometimes you just don't know what you're going to get. This Sunday will most definitely be one of those days.

List of concerns grows for Packers

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy is more concerned with the way his defense is playing than he is about the revolving door he has at quarterback or the team's seemingly endless list of injuries.

Week 10: Packers vs. Eagles Preview and Prediction

This is a game which looked ripe for the picking a week ago: the Green Bay Packers playing the Philadelphia Eagles at Lambeau Field. The Pack, so we thought, would be coming off a big Monday night win against Da Bearz, having secured their lead at the top of the NFC North. This would begin a stretch of games for the Packers where the team could separate itself from the rest of the...

Eagles Versus Packers: Staff Predictions

Hal Greenblatt Everything about this game screams trap game for the Eagles. Seneca Wallace starting. Playing in Green Bay. Clay Matthews returning. Yet, I can’t look away from the Eagles.

Whether it's Aaron Rodgers, Michael Vick, Peyton Manning, Jay Cutler or E.J. Manuel, no quarterback in the NFL is safe. A QB could start 200 straight games, but that doesn't mean he's safe. All it takes is a shoddy offensive line or just even a small mistake. That's why we see so many quarterbacks on a roster at the same time -- teams know they need more talent behind...
