To nobody's surprise, the Green Bay Packers' quarterback situation remains under scrutiny as we approach Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons with few answers as to Aaron Rodgers' availability. At this point, it looks like Matt Flynn will start, so it's of course time to continue examining what the offense looks like with him under center and what it will take to move the ball successfully.
Good thing the Falcons have a struggling defense, especially in the pass rush where they rank 31st in the league with just 22 sacks.
