Scott Tolzien and Matt Flynn are the healthy quarterbacks on your team's roster, Packers fans. If I would have told you that before the final cut-down day of training camp, you probably would have laughed me off the site. That's where we sit now, though, and the internet is trying to understand how this happened and what it means for the team moving forward.

I think that with games against the struggling Giants and Vikings on deck, it means that we can still win football games. But that's just me.
