    It’s a smart move to keep Aaron Rodgers out of the game. We have home field advantage already. Why risk getting #12 hurt. The playoffs are in a couple weeks. We need to be healthy.

    I’d rather find out today if Flynn has the cajones to play a big boy game than when he HAS to play due to injuries or bad press due to camera phone misuse…

  19. By Brandon on Jan 1, 2012 | Reply

    i can understand this, but i think they might be going a little too far. resting their best players for playoffs, but they have the by week anyways, and just because they are the number 1 seed in the nfl, doesn’t mean they are automatically going to win their mathcups. just like what happened with the chiefs. my idea would be start rodgers and atleast matthews as well, and when the time comes that they have an out-of-reach lead, sub them. just those two atleast.

  20. By Nick on Jan 1, 2012 | Reply

    i would rather see it this way. simply beacsue we need healthy startede for the post-season. its better to save the starters fro possible injury before the post-seaon. it will be interesting seeing Shiends filling in for Woodson.

    I think it is a smart move too. This game is almost like a preseason game, not worth much to either team. I would think the Lions could rest their starters too anyways since they are in the playoffs also, it is meaningless to both teams.

    All the Packers need to do to win today, is PLAY LOOSE, like it was practice. They will pile up yards and scores not thought possible with most of the starters on the bench. Hope no one gets hurt!

    Staying healthy is #1… can’t go into the playoffs with serious injuries. This gives healing one more week. Not having some key players out there decreases the negative impact Suh might have. Playing well will do more than sitting on the bench. These guys know they have to bring their “A” game — the whole team is depending on it.

    I just went on nfl.com and looked at the inactives for todays game. Nothing about Rogers being inactive. Also McCarthy wants to play all 3 qb’s in todays game. There was a vid on the packers website of the coach in a news conference.

    Thats good let flynn start, so aaron doesnt get hurt. They already clinch first round. Thats good he is giving the the starters the staters the day off. We cant afford for them go get hurt. Good job coach mike.

    So many are saying Rodgers should start/play. Would you still feel the same if Suh or Avril gets loose and crushes him? Most of the other inactives have injuries.

    Bad choice. The last thing we want to do is kill any momentum we have going into the playoffs. This team will have had 3 weeks off going into the playoffs, and no practice can give you the game experience you need to stay sharp. I think this is too long of a break, and very generous to the lions for practically handing them a win and a ton of momentum going into the playoffs, something they’ll need as a wild card team. We, of all teams, should know the value of that. This may turn out very bad for us in the playoffs, I’m not sure we can get to the super bowl again and this isn’t raising my confidence at all.

  57. By Bill on Jan 1, 2012 | Reply

    Maybe it would have been better to play to win now rather than to increase the risk in the playoffs. At 5th seed, the Lions have a much better chance of meeting the Packers in the division round. If Suh wants to hurt Rodgers today how much more motivated will he be in the divisional round?

    Showing fear does not exactly help win the psychological battle in the playoffs and with our defense we need all the advantage we can get. Go Pack!

  58. By Todd on Jan 1, 2012 | Reply

    Smart move, Flynn will be fine but the Lions will throw alot of different blitz packages at him early on to test him. It would be very cool if he beat the Lions D. But if it turns out to be 14-2, oh well…..

    wow I wonder how Matt Flynn feels knowing most of you guys think today is gonna be a lost. Flynn is a good qb (otherwise he wouldnt be the packers back up qb) and he will bring us that win.

    I think Mike has made a great move; protect the key players for the post season. Matt Flynn is really better than people seem to be giving him credit in the comments here, and the other lot of subs are all pretty good or they would not be here.Be positive! The Pack is BACK anyways.

    As much as I love watching Aaron, I think this is a great time to let Flynn find out what it’s like, that way if we ABSOLUTELY need him, he will have some game experience. Think back to the “F” days, when he decided to leave most people thought Aaron didn’t have what it takes simply because he was never given a chance. Just think if we can get Flynn up to speed, we will be unstoppable!

    I am entertained by folks who think that playing starters in a meaningless game is wise. Odds are, if you were coach, similarly bad decisions would lead your teams to 3-13, or 2 – 14 and the honor of being the worst team of the year.

    There in the playoffs already. We really don’t need this won, yes it would help us,but it is not a most.

    Anybody who can’t understand resting starters when the Packers have nothing to gain against the dirtiest team in the NFL doesn’t have a clue about football. Only bad can come from allowing the starters to play. MM has already tried the approach of playing his first team in meaningless games in the past for “momentum”, and that didn’t work out very well. This was a smart move; and I believe we can beat them with Flynn. Go Pack Go…

    I feel it should be pointed out, with the exception of Rodgers and maybe Matthews all those players the Packers have made inactive are injured.

    Like the preseason this game will be a chance to evaluate non-starters, hopefully find a second pass rusher(D’Soto?), and trust me Flynn is more than capable. He’s not as good as Rodgers but Flynn is a better QB than most teams starters.

    Also while everyone likes to cite the Colts remember how the Saints lost their last 3 games in 2009? No you don’t because they won the Super Bowl and those games meant nothing.

    People relax! It’s a smart move! Yes, the Colts rested Manning once and they lost. But a few years back the Patriots chose to go for the perfect season and Brady was injured. It can go both ways. I have faith that Mike made the best choice for the team he has. Go Pack!

    When did ballet dancers afraid of their own shadows take over the NFL? Lombardi is rolling over in his grave. Did Nitschke ever sit out a game because he “might” get a booboo? One of the most disapointing displays of money screwing up the game of football. WHAT THE HELL’S GOING ON OUT THERE?

    I don’t like whats been decided! I understand why but our good players should atleast start the game. Seen their the ones that got us here!! The fans didnt pay the price of the tickets to see our second and third string play. As a fan the Packers should play to win each game.

    Rodgers are the rest of the uninjured starters need to start the first half. The second half can be all Matt Flynn, who really is good and could start somewhere else. I’m glad we have him.

    Everyone who is complaining about Rodger not being in is a bafoon. I’d hate to see how you guys act when the Packers are having a losing season. It’s to keep Rodgers healthy, grow up.

    I see you are all Super Bowl winning coaches and knows what’s best. Oh wait…

    Also, Flynn has 3 touchdowns and 280 yards in the first half. Is that exciting enough for all of you complaining that people aren’t getting their moneys worth?

    How’d the game go for all the armchair coaches/quarterbacks out there?

    Well, after reading everyone’s complaint about sittin’ Rodgers, I wonder how you all feel now? Don’t EVER count anyone out. Flynn just shut the mouth of everyone of you who had doubts, and rightfully so. This is the best Packers team EVER ASSEMBLED!! Go Flynn, shut ‘em up!! GO PACK GO!! See ya in the playoffs!!

    Matt Flynn proved he has what it takes to lead this team sans Aaron Rodgers. Doubters should thank the Green Bay front office for keeping a star like Flynn, he’d be a starter for any other team in the NFL. One game at a time… don’t even think about the Super Bowl yet. Thanks for another win boys!

    Yesterday I told all you doubting Thomas’s to quit your whining. How many of you still doubt Matt Flynn today? Wasn’t a real pretty win, but Matt did what he was asked to do, and he did it with what he had to work with. CONGRATULATIONS to Matt and the rest of those who played, and thanks to coach McCarthy and his staff for putting together a very memorable preseason. I wish the entire Packer organization the best in the post season. Let’s keep the Lombardi trophy in Green Bay!

    Brilliant decision, Coach McCarthy. Now the Pack will not only have Aaron Rodgers ready, but also the offensive line, and Defense too.

    Go beat the Saints on Super Bowl Day, February 5, 2012.

    Hail to the Superbowl XLVI Packers, and defending Champs. Who is going to beat or even tie 18 wins, and 1 defeat.

    @ Howard Paley: I’m with you 1005 on that one. Coach McCarthy deserves a sizable pay raise for his efforts this year.
