Don’t be surprised if Byron Leftwich or Matt Flynn is the hero or goat come Sunday night. In the last couple of football seasons, backup quarterbacks have played significant roles in significant games.

This is probably the most media attention Packers backup QB Matt Flynn has had in his career.

What in the name of Bud Grant happened this week? Outdoor football in Minnesota? Rex Grossman? And Tim Tebow having a better fantasy week than Philip Rivers, Drew Brees and Peyton Manning? What a crazy week, let’s break it all down.
What an odd week for fantasy quarterbacks. Redskins QB Rex Grossman tosses four touchdown passes. Broncos QB Tim Tebow is proving to be a dual-threat. And Colts QB Peyton Manning managed to escape again without throwing an interception.

The Broncos will go with QB Tim Tebow, meaning that the Raiders defense will become an excellent play against the rival Broncos. This also means that you will want to bench WR Brandon Lloyd, which should probably be viewed as a good thing considering he has struggled in recent weeks.

The old cliché states that defense wins championships. Well, it might also help you win a fantasy championship, too.
The Packers were dealt a serious blow in Sunday’s game against the Lions when QB Aaron Rodgers was ruled out with his second concussion of the season.
The Packers were one of those must-start teams, where you could feel safe starting all of their notable offensive players. That could be in for a huge change.
The Packers are concerned enough about their backup quarterback spot that they could get involved in trade talks with the Buccaneers, who are shopping Byron Leftwich, Luke McCown and Josh Johnson.

Packers legend Paul Hornung told a crowd of supporters that Brett Favre will not win if he goes to Minnesota. He is the second member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame to take aim at Favre during the offseason.
While the Packers are forced to take a wait-and-see approach regarding whether starting QB Aaron Rodgers will be able to play Sunday with his seperated right shoulder, coach Mike McCarthy spent Thursday’s practice preparing rookie backup Matt Flynn to start.
With the status of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers still uncertain heading into the weekend, Lori Nickel of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel caught up with backup Matt Flynn to see how he is preparing.
Aaron Rodgers suffered a right shoulder sprain during the Packers’ 30-21 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said during his Monday news conference.
Aaron Rodgers remained on the sidelines for the Packers after he appeared to hurt his right shoulder earlier in the second half. Rookie Matt Flynn has replaced him under center.
Rodgers has had a solid start to this season, but injuries have always been a concern. I’ll let you know how serious it is as soon as I find out more details.
The Green Bay Packers — the franchise that launched the careers of players such as Bart Starr and Brett Favre — do not have a quarterback on their opening 53-man roster that ever has started an NFL game.
