James Jones gives Matt Flynn new nickname

Atlanta QB Matt Ryan has been known for years as “Matty Ice” for his calm, cool approach late in games, but Packers WR James Jones thinks his current QB, Matt Flynn, can lay claim to that nickname, too, after Green Bay’s second-half comebacks the past two games.

“Matt’s a gamer,” Jones said. “He comes into the game, he’s got ice in his veins. That’s the new ‘Matty Ice’ over there. He just comes out and plays ball. That’s what he does. We have 100 percent confidence in Matt that he’ll get the job done and go out and help us win.”

For his part, Flynn said his cool approach in clutch situations is a combination of his laid-back demeanor and a focus on being emotionally in control as a leader on the field.

“I think I’ve always kind of had that,” Flynn said. “I’m a laid-back guy, and that’s my nature. I make a conscious effort not to get too overly excited or too down, just because I feel like there’s a lot of chaos going around, so when we get in that huddle, a couple seconds before we run each play, it’s good for them to have a calming effect in the huddle.

“I definitely get excited, though, when we do good things and it’s crunch time.”
