Mike McCarthy makes Green Bay Packers QB decision

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy announces that Matt Flynn is going to start against the Detroit Lions on Thursday.

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy has confirmed that Matt Flynn will be the starting quarterback for the game with the Detroit Lions.

McCarthy was previously on the fence regarding whether it would be Flynn or Scott Tolzien to start in the absence of the injured Aaron Rodgers.

However on Wednesday the coach made his final call, with the newly-signed Flynn getting the nod over Tolzien, who had started last weekend in the tie with the Minnesota Vikings.

McCarthy told the club's official site: "Yes Matt Flynn will be the starter. He's taken all the reps this week and he's ready to go.

"I was focused on getting both guys ready but it will be Matt who lines up against the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving."

The Packers are third in the NFC North, and still have hopes of making the playoffs.
