Packers Should Bring JJ Home

You can literally count on one hand the number of players Ted Thompson has brought back to the Packers. Quarterback Matt Flynn, running backs Ryan Grant and Ahman Green and tackle Mark Tauscher. That’s it. And it took some level of emergency to allow for those encores. So while I’m not expecting wide receiver James Jones to be catching passes from Aaron Rodgers next season, I’d...

Grading the Packers 2015 Draft Picks

The 2015 Packers draft was one full of luxury picks. There were not tons of needs on either side of the ball, but there were areas that could have used an upgrade like CB and TE. Luckily, Ted Thompson was once again able to meet need with value and addressed multiple needs. In addition to adding depth to the secondary, the Packers also took multiple players that should help on special...

Cory’s Corner: Kuhn, Bush and Flynn — who will stay?

Ted Thompson has set the standard for keeping his own players in the fold. Of the nine signed free agents, five have agreed to come back to Green Bay. But three Packers remain as free agents. With the NFL Draft looming on April 30, will Thompson bring back John Kuhn, Jarrett Bush and Matt Flynn? I could make an argument to not bring back any of those guys. Kuhn’s role has continually...

Ranking the five best free agent quarterbacks still available

The quarterback class was pretty much a dumpster fire before free agency even started. When a team signs Tyrod Taylor to compete for a starting gig, we know full well there aren’t many options out there. Now that we are practically into the third wave of free agency, there really isn’t much remaining in terms of quarterbacks who can even contribute on Sundays. Here’s a look...

PHOTO: Packers backup quarterback Matt Flynn goes nuts at Pearl Jam concert

Is there any job in the world that’s better than being the backup for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers? I doubt it. Matt Flynn will make just under one million dollars this season for the honor of holding a clipboard on the sidelines and watch the greatest player in the NFL do his work. Sounds like a great reason to go out and party to me, and that’s exactly what Flynn...

Matt Flynn beats out Scott Tolzien as Packers' No. 2 QB

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- When the Green Bay Packers decided to keep three quarterbacks on their active roster, there was still one important question: Who was No. 2 on the depth chart behind Aaron Rodgers? Well, the winner of the job isn't the one who had the better preseason performances. Head coach Mike McCarthy said Sunday that Matt Flynn is going into the regular season ahead of Scott...

Flynn Had To Stay

I was truly amazed at how many so-called experts thought the Packers were going to release Matt Flynn. That’s because there was never any chance Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy were going to discard the veteran quarterback who won two huge games for them a year ago and instead cast their lot with the inexperienced player he replaced. This is no knock on Scott Tolzien. In fact, I’ve...

It appears as though the consensus view favors Tolzien, as he has a much better arm and could develop into a very solid backup quarterback in time. However, Flynn has managed to win a few...

It’s surprising how much attention the No. 2 quarterback job for the Packers has gotten. But then again, judging from last year’s injury-plagued season, it’s imperative that whoever backs up Aaron Rodgers has to be able to lead a world-class offense. However, deciding on a backup isn’t the most important quarterback decision on this team. The most important judgment in terms...
