    Time will tell on Tolzien, but given what we saw last season, if the Packers season is on the line and Rodgers is unavailable (injured), I’d rather take my chances with Flynn. Tolzien needs to over come his case of color blindness (interceptions0 before I’d trust him.

    Like the guy but something is missing. I DON’T question his toughness . It’s what going on inside his head while he is in the pocket and what he is seeing I question. I Feel he will be better as he learns by the best QB in the league. I’m with Brian above “Flynn”. Scott should get plenty of chances to work out flaws and shape his craft during up coming preseason action.

    I liked what I saw of Tolzien last year given his chance to prepare. Extremely strong downfield arm strength, something Im genuinely concerned with Matt. Matt has the experience and playbook knowledge, but a diminishing skill set witnessed by Seattle, Oakland, Buffalo first hand. I think MM, TT and MM will see what they need to out of ST and opt for him and save +$1mil.

    Don’t read too much into Flynn’s inability to stick with other teams. Had he been healthy last year, chances are we’d have never gotten our hands on him. Seattle dumped Flynn because they were paying him starter money and they had Wilson. When he was in Oakland and Buffalo, he had an elbow injury that barely let him throw. He wasn’t even 100% healthy when he came back to play for us last year.

    step one: acquire a used dirty diaper
    2: cut the diaper into small 1”x1” squares
    3: place under your lip as you would chewing tobacco
    4: enjoy your journey into ”flavor country”

    Both players will get hurt. I just know it.

    Flynn needs to stay the back-up. Experience and oversight of defenses is more KEY in that role than is ability/skill sets. Flynn is a smart back-up QB with the knowledge and leadership needed to run the offense in the event rodgers gets hurt again. Tolzien still is 2 years away from that role.

    More of this pointless garbage. Go find a Scientology site to spew this stuff on.

    No way, Matt Flynn is a much better QB. Tolzien needs to be under Matt Flynn.
