If it had been up to me, I'd have started Flynn too. Barring injury, I don't expect we'll see Tolzien on the field again this season. However I was surprised that Flynn didn't seem to be adjusting to the Lions' defense. This tweet explains why he seemed unprepared.
Flynn only had about 90 minutes of practice last week preparing for Detroit.The good news here is that if he has to start against on Sunday, and it appears that will be the case, at least he'll have a full week of practice. He'll also get to play against one of the two defenses, Atlanta's, that is actually ranked lower than the Packers. I'm expecting a lot, lot better from him next Sunday.
