Just how valuable is Aaron Rodgers? The Vikings, shredded by the Packers just a few weeks ago in Minnesota, are beating up on Green Bay at Lambeau Field in Week 12. Things got so bad that Scott Tolzien was benched for Matt Flynn.

With the Vikings up 20-7, Mike McCarthy cranked up the time machine and took us back to 2010, the last time that Flynn was under center for the Packers.

It didn't do a whole lot of good, as the Packers ended up punting the ball to the Vikings on Flynn's first drive anyway. But they at least looked a little frisky, except for Flynn going 2 of 3 for 4 yards.

With Tolzien under center, Green Bay couldn't manufacture much of anything. Tolzien was 7 for 17 passing for 98 yards.

Of course, no matter how things end up going in the future, we'll always have this #NeverForget moment from Tolzien:
