In Cortez Allen's heart of hearts, that may be what he's thinking. It's just not what he's saying.
According to Tribune-Review reporter Ralph N. Paulk, Allen was excited for the challenge of facing him.
"It's exciting to be able to go against a quarterback of that caliber," Allen said, according to Paulk.
Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons summarized Flynn pretty well, all things considered.
"(Flynn) isn't as mobile as Rodgers, but he has a strong arm," Timmons said. "He might be somewhat limited, but he looked like a starting quarterback against Dallas."
Translation, he ain't no Rodgers, but he's capable of having success.
That makes him a dangerous player, even if the most dangerous is on the bench. The Packers have struggled for a while to adjust to life without Rodgers (or wide receiver Randall Cobb or tight end JerMichael Finley), but they may have found a system that works in the second half against the Cowboys.
