Full week of work a boost for Matt Flynn

Last week, QB Matt Flynn got a couple of short, walk-through practices to get ready for his first Packers start of 2013.

This week, Flynn was able to get a full, normal week of preparation for his second straight start in place of Aaron Rodgers, and he expects that to make a big difference.

“Without a doubt,” he said. “I feel like I’m calling the plays and not really thinking about where guys are lining up and what they’re running. I feel more fluid with everybody and feel we can get a little chemistry going.”

Any and all fluidity was lost last week against the Lions, a game Flynn says you just have to “forget about.” Detroit packed eight and sometimes nine defenders at the line of scrimmage, daring the Packers to beat them with the pass, and Flynn says it’s up to the offense to take advantage of those situations, which leave single coverage on the outside against the wide receivers.

“It should be a quarterback’s dream,” he said. “Obviously last week we didn’t execute, but that’s over with, and we need to get it done and play like the Green Bay Packers.”

Up front, the Packers could be shuffling on the offensive line again, with C Evan Dietrich-Smith listed as questionable after missing practice on Friday. He injured his ankle on Wednesday, and the Packers have a few different ways they could go in his absence.

Flynn expects the Falcons to give the Packers a number of different defensive looks to try to confuse them with their pass-protection assignments. Given that, it will be important to trust the offense and the preparation. As much as everyone wants to make up for the disaster in Detroit, that can’t be the mentality come kickoff on Sunday.

“We don’t go out and try to make something happen, we don’t go and try to press and be something we’re not,” Flynn said. “We go out there to execute, and if we play our best, it should be good enough.”
