Quarterback Matt Flynn, who was brought back to the Packers this week to serve as a backup to Scott Tolzien, said it feels like he never left.

Itís been nearly two years since Flynn last played for the Packers Ė on Jan. 1, 2012, he subbed for a resting Aaron Rodgers and led the Packers to a 45-41 win over Detroit in a meaningless regular-season finale.

Since then heís played and been cut by the Seahawks, Raiders and Bills.

ďA lot of different faces in here, but itís a lot of similar ones,Ē said Flynn. ďIt was a good transition and itís been fun, and itís been comfortable.Ē

Flynn discussed his situation with reporters in the locker room today.

On how things played out with other teams: ďDefinitely never expected to be back here in this locker room. I feel very fortunate and blessed to have this opportunity, but looking back at the last year and a half, last two seasons, definitely didnít go the way I planned on it, for whatever reason that was. But I have no regrets about it. I feel like I worked my tail off everywhere I went, controlled what I could control and things just didnít work out, for whatever reason it was, things didnít work out the way I planned or saw in my head. But I feel like Iím still the same player I was when I left here and Iím still a confident guy, a confident player and whatever I can do to help this team out and hopefully bring some experience for this team back here.Ē

On how much his elbow might have contributed to his lack of success: ďI donít think it played that much of a difference. The only time it ever affected me was during training camp. I donít think, I couldnít really tell you how much it played a part, but all I know is that it didnít work out and didnít happen.Ē

On his comfort level with the Packers offense: ďItís very comfortable, especially passing game-wise. Theyíve changed some stuff in the run game, which is a little bit of a learning curve for me. Iíve just got to familiarize myself with it. It feels good coming back here, itís very comfortable, terminology, the offense, schematically everything theyíre doing, I feel good about it. I feel confident that Iíll be back fluent in this offense real soon.Ē

On whether his elbow is an issue now: ďNo, no issue. I can perform and throw at 100 percent.Ē
