James Jones gives Matt Flynn new nickname

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 18, 2013 – 4:37 pm

WR James Jones

WR James Jones

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.”

    Nah, Matty Ice is too similar to Natty Ice. NO ONE LIKES NATURAL ICE BEER. How about Flynnactive since Mr. Rodgers is back? That’s preferred. Secondary would be Flynnsurmountable.

    For all you pretend poets, how about Sunday it is unwinable with Flynnable.

  43. By KyPackerFan on Dec 19, 2013 | Reply

    I think that MM should activate/clear AR but start Flynn. By clearing AR to play on Friday it will cause the Steelers’ to be prepared to face both QB’s and be less prepared for either. Only bring in AR if we start to fall too fat behind; this isn’t Dallas or the Vikings we’re playing this week. Go Pack Go

    Everyone needs to chill.
    QB controversy. No way. ARod is still our guy.Keep Flynn as he knows our Offense, absolutely. Backup, let’s get Tolzien some more time under his belt and let’s see.
    Its the frozen tundra so everyone chill!

    I hope Flynn stays with us this time. Every time he has time to game plan the guy is solid. He works well in the GB offense. As for Dennis Allen of the Raiders, He’s clueless and will be looking for a job soon. But hey, keep lusting after that “mobile” QB

    Gotta love a player like Flynn. Odds are against him from the start and he adapts and overcomes to where the Pack is now. Maybe not the best skill set in the league but, he’s a leader, without question. That can’t be coached. The team is totally supportive of him as is the Coaching Staff. Talk about DRAMA unfolding in Lambeau. Sunday can’t come soon enough. If “The Ice” (as some are calling him)doesn’t melt against the Steelers, then it’s HOPEFULLY, all good. We get Rodgers back for Da Bears! Go, Flynn and Go Pack!

    Flynn wins today he’s legit and a the latest green bay hero. Loses today and he’s a forgotten man and a mere footnote in the green bay record books.

    Go get’em today Matt, the green bay nation is rooting for you!
