Former Packers QB Matt Flynn strikes a deal with the Seattle Seahawks

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It didn’t take long for the former Green Bay Packers’ back-up QB to find a new home.

Matt Flynn has accepted a three-year deal worth up to $26 million, including $10 million guaranteed to join the Seattle Seahawks.

Flynn isn’t the first back-up in Green Bay to leave for Seattle as did Matt Hasselbeck in 2001 when he was traded to the Seahawks for draft picks. [Read more…]

With Joe Philbin in Miami, Could the Packers Matt Flynn End Up In South Beach?

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Friday, the Miami Dolphins ended their search for a Head Coach by naming the former Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator, Joe Philbin, to the position. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what Philbin’s first course of action should be in Miami.

The Dolphins’ most glaring need is at quarterback. Whether they have already planned to draft one in April or stick with the inconsistent Matt Moore or Chad Henne has yet to be determined.

With Brees’ hot finish to the season and Rodgers’ safe ending, here’s why I think the award should be split for the third time in history. [Read more…]

Matt Flynn for the Win: Packers Embarrass Lions Without Key Starters

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With Aaron Rodgers resting on the bench, who would have thought the Green Bay Packers would put up 550 total yards of offense and 45 points?

Back-up QB Matt Flynn had a career day with a franchise record six touchdowns and 480 passing yards in the 45-41 shootout win at Lambeau Field.

Since 1970, Flynn is the 3rd QB to throw for 3 or more TDs in his first two starts. The other two were Dan Marino and Kurt Warner.

For the Lions, QB Matthew Stafford put up college-like numbers with 520 yards and five touchdowns. And there was that Calvin Johnson guy with 244 receiving yards as well.
