Thank You, Matt Flynn

Matt Flynn is my new favorite Packer. The third-year quarterback more than held his own in his first start on the road against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots Sunday night.  He dominated the first half, not making a mistake until a pick-six early in the second half that was wideout James Jones’ fault, […]
