But four days into camp, Flynn clearly has been better. Mike McCarthy and his coaching staff can't say enough about Tolzien's work ethic and character, but the fourth-year pro still is holding the ball too long, too often. While he's had the occasional sharp throw, he's also been delivering his share of checkdowns and scrambling more than he'd probably be able to in a game.


Flynn says his arm is feeling better:

"This camp is the first time I've thrown 100 percent without pain since the middle of Seattle's camp (in '12)," Flynn said.

Makes sense but they gotta keep three this season. Both guys should make it through.

Only if both players make it clear they are worth keeping. A third quarterback who is utter shit doesn't hold much value to us.

Flynn is accurate but lacks zip. Tolzien lacks accuracy but has zip. Do we have some kind of human molding device?

I would take accuracy over zip any day.

Montana didn't have a great arm. Jeff George did.

I'm partial to Flynn, he's shown he can come in and win games. Tolzien seems to have a lot of potential but not much else, seems like more of practice squad type. Was he active for too many games to be eligible for the PS?

I would be happy going with 2 if Flynn is the #2. Sure you can point to last year, but any team down to their #3 and #4 QB is going to be in real trouble. Chances are your #3 QB is not going to be much better than the guy who you would keep on the practice squad. The real problem with last year was everyone behind Rodgers sucked. I feel much better about Flynn.

Flynn may not be a starter, but I do think he is one of the best backup QBs in the league, especially in the Packer's system.

TheKanataThrilla (5h) : Salt mine. Love it.
TheKanataThrilla (5h) : The refs kept that game close. We should have blown them out early.

Zero2Cool (15h) : Jordy has "legitimate hope" to play, per @RobDemovsky.
Zero2Cool (16h) : Packers had one call on defense if called, no issue, wans't called. I didn't watch OL so dunno. I watched WR's

uffda udfa (16h) : I think the Pi vs just a holding call is a legit complaint. Terrible call.
