Why didn't Matt Flynn play yesterday?

Yesterday, as you all probably know, the Packers lost their third straight game to the Giants, 27-13. In the contest, recently-signed backup QB Matt Flynn never appeared, surprising me and probably many others. In his career, Flynn hasn't been that good, but at least he's had a career. So, I must say that I am very disappointed in the fact that Scott Tolzein was the only man we saw play in the loss. Tolzein wasn't good last week or this week, so it's a mystery to me why everybody keeps praising him. He only deserves criticism. So I beg Mike McCarthy, give the actual professional a chance here. Because if the Packers keep gambling by only playing Tolzein, they'll defintely stay at 5 wins as long as Rodgers is out.

Really? Flynn's start against the Redskins (with the Raiders) was brutal and led to his release. His last extended playing time (2012 preseason with Seattle) lost him his starting job. Tolzien's 3 INTs were awful but he's playing like a decent backup and he's outplayed Flynn in their combined three starts. They could have won that Bears game with Tolzien instead of Wallace.

I agree Tolzein's better than Wallace, and maybe Tolzein is better than Flynn as well. But I still think Flynn deserves a shot here. At least the split the playing time between the two
