[tps_header]5. Green Bay Packers quarterbacks[/tps_header]
Rank the top quarterbacks however you please – Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, etc. – but one thing is clear: should one of those players go down with a season-ending injury, his team’s title hopes are done.
The Packers were without Aaron Rodgers for seven games in 2013, and with Seneca Wallace and Scott Tolzien under center, Green Bay struggled. Matt Flynn was able to rally the troops in wins over Atlanta and Dallas to keep the Packers afloat, before Rodgers returned in Week 17 to send Green Bay to the playoffs with a win over Chicago.
While Flynn has shown himself unworthy of being a full-time starter in the league, he is certainly one of the better backups in the NFL. Having him around as a proven backup sets the quarterback position group for the Packers just ahead of the Broncos, Patriots, Saints and more.
