Mike McCarthy announces Matt Flynn to start


“Our sources” just confirmed that Mike McCarthy has promised the 2008 starting QB role to rookie Matt Flynn “until he gets hurt”. McCarthy noted that he bases most decisions on starting roles for each position on the performance at Family Night. Morency will be joining Flynn in the backfield based on his per carry average of 29 and Patrick Lee will start at all 4 secondary positions, occasionally helped by Charlie Peprah. Alfred Malone will start on the line and nobody will punt. When pressed for more on the reasoning for starting Flynn, McCarthy pointed out that Flynn doesn’t wear a totally prohibitive, giant knee brace (Brohm) make poor hair-experimentation decisions (Rodgers) and has not recently behaved like a “flippin’ 5 year old”.

    Glazer (once again) has the scoop:

    “Another agreement from the meeting was that, despite reports to the contrary, there would not be an open quarterback competition as even Favre felt this would not be in the best interests of the locker room. Thus, Aaron Rodgers is the team’s starting quarterback.”

    This has me torn. On one hand I’m happy to see that privately Favre gives a rip about this team and its chemistry. On the other hand: what the hell does he think he has been doing for the last month?

    Thanks for the piece. Stranger things have happened. Wasn’t Brady a low round (6th?) pick and Unitas a free agent?

    Just heard on WSSP that MM told Brett that there will not be an open competition for the starting job – it belongs to Rodgers.
