Ugh. According to ESPN here, he is getting the first team reps this week with Rodgers not expected to play (though apparently that hasn’t been determined conclusively just yet). While I can freely admit McCarthy doesn’t have a pleasant decision about which guy to start – because TT has left him with 2 weak options at QB, I am not sure how McCarthy can justify going with Flynn after Flynn’s performance last week. That was one of the worst games by an NFL QB in years! I realize he gave us a spark and helped us tie the Vikings – after Tolzien wasn’t doing anything – but man he was so bad last week in a hugely important game that I actually wondered if he’d be cut!
I will say this, if Flynn gets the start, McCarthy better be giving Tolzien plenty of first team reps this week too so that he can be well-prepared to come in if Flynn is a disaster once again.
