Even with surprisingly good recall of the Packers’ playbook after his time in Seattle, Oakland and Buffalo, Matt Flynn still had only a limited menu of plays and wasn’t always certain of the play he was running (against the Lions).
“I’m definitely looking forward to getting some work in this week and getting some timing down and running a few of the plays I wasn’t as familiar with. But that’s no excuse. I knew where people were supposed to be and I knew the plays we were running,” Flynn said. “[It’s a matter of] just getting time with the receivers, getting timing down with some of the new plays we have here that I haven’t necessarily really run in practice, just getting timing down and getting the communication down with the O-line and the running backs and things like that – all the little things you miss out not being here a while. Just getting back on that rhythm.”
