You know, I’ve heard some of you out there calling for Matt Flynn. Well, you won’t be getting your wish. Scott Tolzien will start at quarterback for the Green Bay Packers for a second week in a row.
Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed that on Monday.
So despite throwing three picks on Sunday (and now five in two games), the Packers will ride Tolzien for at least one more week. That suggests that the coaching staff still has confidence in him and that Aaron Rodgers won’t be back this week.
Of course, McCarthy didn’t have any new information to share about Rodgers, other than to say it would be a collective decision on when he returns. It’s obvious the Packers have a target date in mind. They just aren’t sharing it with anyone.
Meanwhile, Tolzien actually had some good moments on Sunday. He was just doomed by the three INTs. He did, however, throw for 339 yards and his deep ball looked great. As did his accuracy.
The good news here is, Tolzien is already far more polished than whatever piece of garbage the Minnesota Vikings decided put behind center this week.
Christian Ponder, Matt Cassell and Josh Freeman. It’s a veritable grab bag of shit.
