COMMENTARY: Its always better to be lucky than good! Fate & luck are strange bedfellows. The Packers were lucky to get veteran backup QB Flynn back in time to lead to two straight victories. Of course, while the cheesedungtv fools (specifically BC) panicked early calling for laughable backup Wisconsin QB Tolzien, the Packers made the right adjustments at half-time including better play calling & pass protection to open up the game. QB Flynn & big defensive turnovers led the Pack to victory.
