1) Introduction: After winning a battle for the backup job behind Aaron Rodgers, Matt Flynn showed that his physical skills are extremely limited. The reason that he won the job is because he has the trust of huddle and has a better understanding of the playbook.
Matthew Clayton Flynn
- Age: 29
- Born: 6/20/1985 in Tyler, Texas
- Height: 6’2″
- Weight: 225
- College: Louisiana State
- Rookie Year: 2008
- NFL Experience: 7
3) Expectations coming into the season: Flynn was the charismatic veteran that had the trust of Rodgers and the coaching staff and used his knowledge of the offense to win the backup job.
4) Player’s highlights/low-lights: In limited action, Flynn’s highlight was going 2 for 2 with 26 yards as the Packers throttled Philadelphia. His lowlight was in a home game vs. Minnesota. He threw a pick on the Packers’ 26 that should’ve never been thrown.
5) Player’s contribution to the overall team success: Basically a clipboard coach. He knew he wasn’t going to play much, but his main role was to make the position as a whole better while making the transition for Scott Tolzien easier.
6) Player’s contributions in the playoffs: N/A.
7) Intangibles: He’s a trusty veteran that has lost lot of zip on his fastball. He not only has played his last season with the Packers, but his final season as a pro.

Yep. Could have issued incomplete grades due to small sample size. Could have been lower, too.
Thanks for the Detroit game and Dallas comeback Matt, Good luck
I think Matt should be proud that he was part of Packers and he built in his few very good performances in different games. Unfortunately for him, he is not at the necessary level any more. But, I’m sure his efforts and his intention was to serve Packers the best he can and he did it. Thank you for that. Matt, I wish you all the best….
Time to move on. Give Tolzien his shot at #2 and draft a QB to develop behind Tolzien as the #3. Thanks, Since ’61
Worn out security blanket…
