Packers Periscope: Week 5 vs Minnesota Vikings

The Past:  The last time the Packer met the Vikings was on week 12 of the 2013 season and was headlined by the “triumphant” return of Matt Flynn.  Much like the parable of the prodigal son, Flynn left the Packers with a spectacular 460 yard, 6 touchdown performance in 2011 to a lucrative deal with the Seattle Seahawks.  However, Flynn didn’t find much success outside the...

Green Bay Packers QB Scott Tolzien named a top-5 hero in NFL from last week

Most people consider the final preseason game as a throwaway; regular starters don’t play, so it’s reserved mostly for guys who will be selling insurance three days later. But that notion, while grounded in some element of truth, isn’t 100 percent accurate. In fact, some on the bubble were able to play their way onto (and off of) rosters last week. Who fell into each category...

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...

Cory’s Corner: Keep 3 QBs but Flynn is the Packers’ backup

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...
