When asked today if he was expecting to start at quarterback again this week, Matt Flynn replied: “I don't know. I'm going to prepare like it. My mindset is I'm starting. Obviously, we all hope that Aaron Rodgers plays, but my mindset is I'm starting just so I can prepare myself.”

Flynn said it doesn’t bother him not knowing Aaron Rodgers’ playing status from week to week.

“I've felt like I've gotten my preparation, I've gotten my work in in practice,” Flynn said. “Mentally, I've felt really good the last two weeks. Preparation-wise, for me, it hasn't been a problem.”

Flynn isn’t worried about the Packers suffering a letdown after their emotional victory over the Cowboys.

“I feel like I've never really experienced that, coming off an emotional high and then people playing bad,” Flynn said. “We're all pros. We're all adults. We know how to handle ourselves. We've played this game enough. We know how to forget about the past and focus on the present.”

Flynn said he is getting more comfortable with the offense with each passing week.

“I feel like since I've been here, every week I've progressed,” he said. “The more reps, the more practice, the more time I get with the guys, the more comfortable I feel. Hopefully, that carries over into the games. Hopefully, I play a little bit better each week. But right now, I feel really good about the offense.”
