The paper noted
"I think we definitely need four, so I'm hopeful that we can get a young guy in the draft," coach Mike McCarthy told the paper. "That's something we're looking at and maybe taking even a harder look this year — well, that's not true, we've always taken a hard look.
"That's something that we're focused on."
While Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) went through individual drills Tuesday,
"Matt Flynn took the starter reps today. That's where we are. Still want to make sure both quarterbacks are ready," McCarthy said.
Flynn came off the bench Sunday against Minnesota in the third quarter to replace an ineffective Tolzien, who made a second straight start. Flynn rallied Green Bay to a 26-all tie. McCarthy said Flynn "played very well and deserves to start," but said he will prepare both quarterbacks.
Tolzien got off to a promising start, as his 6-yard touchdown run on the team's second drive in the first quarter put Green Bay ahead 7-0. Tolzien showed some nice athleticism on the play. After rolling to the right, Tolzien cut back to the middle of the field, spun away from a tackler and dove into the end zone for the score.
Unfortunately, it went downhill for Tolzien from there. He was pulled after completing just 7 of 17 passes for 98 yards. He rushed for 25 yards on two carries. The Packers are back in action on Thanksgiving at Detroit.
