Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for December 5, 2013

With Aaron Rodgers' shoulder still looking like it will keep him out of this week's game, all eyes focus squarely on Matt Flynn once again.

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.

On to the links!

Jerron McMillian's release serves as a wake-up call to some Packers - JSOnline
People need to be made accountable for their performance, one way or another. It's unfortunate that it's come to the point that people have started to get released, but that's what happens when you go 0-4-1 in a five-game stretch.

Packers' passing game works to regain defensive respect - JSOnline
They sure haven't given teams reason to respect it with Matt Flynn out there. At least Tolzien was connecting on some deep passes on occasion...

Oh hey, look at that. Matt Flynn's arm strength is hardly a guarantee, however. Even in his ridiculous game against the Lions in 2011, he was 3-5 on passes longer than 20 yards and only 12 of his 42 passes went 10 yards or more past the line of scrimmage.

Flynn on last week's game: "Obviously we have to play better on offense. That was awful." Yup.

If a former Packer signed with the Bears, would it be any different? I doubt it.
