Mike McCarthy: We Can Beat Steelers With Matt Flynn


Green Bay received the same piece of news on Aaron Rodgers that they’ve been privvy to for the last 7 weeks.  Rodgers will again be inactive because of his broken left collarbone.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy referred to the news as bad, but not devestating.  McCarthy told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that the Packers can beat the Pittsburgh Steelers with Matt Flynn at quarterback.

“We feel that we can beat Pittsburgh with our football team,” McCarthy said. “We came in here Monday morning preparing to beat Pittsburgh with Matt Flynn, stated that all along. We feel very good about the preparation.”

What else was McCarthy supposed to say.  The Packers can still beat this version of the Steelers defense as long as they can protect Matt Flynn, and give him room to throw.
