Without a doubt..Flynn looked so much better! But I'm still not wanting him as our second string. I would rather have a veteran.

It's not out of the question. It might've been discouraging for him to get drafted by a team that already had a young QB moving into the starting role. Brohm had been "the man" throughout high school and college, and now he's just a bit player. So maybe it's been a little weird for him. But I still think he can shake it off and get his act together eventually.

Here are two things to consider:

1. Brohm played one series after Rodgers left, then they alternated between the two QB's. So Flynn pretty much got equal billing.

2. With the Packers down to two minutes and a chance to tie the game, Flynn played QB and led the Packers to a TD, although they missed the two-point conversion that would've tied it.

Brohm had a few good moments as well, and he came very close to throwing his first TD as a Packer, but the catch was overturned (correctly) by the officials. But mostly Brohm still looked kind of flustered to me and he made more bad decisions than Flynn did. (Holding onto the ball way too long on a sack when he was out of the pocket and could've thrown it away; some short throws in long yardage situations.)

Because of Flynn's performance, I think the Packers can get by without signing a veteran backup QB. And both of these guys should be improving with every week that goes by.


Another Good,and insightful post. A good read and food for thought.

Well done Greg.

Flynn is the better QB right now. Brohm is way to indecisive when making the decisions. He holds onto the ball way too long and he really doesn't look comfortable.

Flynn looks more relaxed. He's by no means perfect. I certainly don't like the prospect of having a 7th round pick be the #2 QB at all but out of the two, Flynn has proven to be the better QB. I like the fact he's willing to run and he seems more aware of what is going on.

I agree 100% He looks more relaxed out there. But is he ready to lead this team if A-Rod goes down?.....Well I am not too anxious to see what happens..

8 for 13, 77 yards and 2 TDs. If Flynn isn't the #2 QB come Monday night someone needs to be fired.

He even managed to make Allen upchuck from the sheer force of his awesomeness.

I know.......and they got it on FILM! I was glad i wasn't eatting at the time. :pukeright:

Wasn't watching the game. Just noticed that Aaron attempted one pass, and it ended up in Gregorious' hands. Good call. Not watching the game, I can only imagine what happened. I'm thinking it was a short pass and Gregorious let the entire D try to tackle him. He just kept walking, dragging all 11 defenders into the end zone until the referee threw up his arms and blew the whistle. made clowns of them all.Considering Flynn's our 2nd best QB, that wouldn't be a good thing.


Anyways, back on topic, from what I've seen, glad we didn't get a Vet QB. If we did, Brohm would be #3, and Flynn would be gone.

Thats +1 for you Zombie!!! LOLOL!!!

Wouldn't they keep Flynn if that were the case? I mean, Flynn has done better so far, so would he be #3, and Brohm would be gone?

That would be tricky. You never cut a second round pick at the end of training camp--you just don't--so if they got rid of Brohm it would be through a trade. And they would get very poor value for him if they traded him now. Brohm has a lot of potential, and I would be surprised if they gave up on him so quickly. Sometimes these cerebral-type QBs get off to slow starts in the NFL because they are overthinking.
