Matt Flynn: Could Green Bay Packers' Backup Be the Next Tom Brady?
No Aaron Rodgers, no problem for Matt Flynn and the Green Bay Packers. In his first NFL start, Flynn is currently picking the New England Patriots secondary apart the way I pick the diced onions out of a McDonald's hamburger. By the way McDonald's, I hate your new commercial poking fun at the Dunkin Donuts' "New Englander" ad campaign. Not a good idea to make fun of people who dress up for Patriots games when you're advertising in New England.
Anyway, Flynn just threw his second touchdown of the night, this time to his top receiver, Greg Jennings, who until this point had been a non-factor. Flynn, thus far, is showing remarkable poise under pressure. During the first few drives for Green Bay, Flynn seemed flustered by the blitz. During the last two drives, he settled down and calmly got the ball out to his hot read.
In a wild turn of events, the Packers now lead the New England Patriots by a score of 17-7. The Patriots haven't lost at home this season, yet somehow the Packers have come into town with a backup quarterback making his first start and have made a game out of it.
It's way too early to start calling the upset, but things are certainly shifting in Green Bay's favor.
To make matters worse, the Patriots are killing themselves with penalties. On the touchdown drive New England committed a personal foul for helmet-to-helmet contact, then committed pass interference to give Green Bay a fresh set of downs at the goal line.
If the Pats hope to beat the Packers they need to stop beating themselves.
