Well, if he was not scared why would he pick up Flynn? This is the first year he carried 3 qb's on the active roster in a long time. GG has been in the system and Flynn has not so you would figured he would have a leg up. So why is he still 3rd string?

Because we lost a veteran QB to injury. Payton has always liked veteran back-ups while a young one develops.

He can't place Grayson on the practice squad so he's decided to go with a 3rd QB.

Where did you hear Grayson was 3rd string? I think Grayson may even be active against the Redskins, and Flynn inactive.

You guys read way too much into every move that you know virtually nothing about.

Flynn may be had experience in green bay as holder? he were so good anywhere else buy he got his signing bonus when he left GB he.had a chance to be a Delhomme in the making but the teams o-line ruined that chance.

I think due to inexperience it's fair to say Grayson will be behind Flynn. Maybe not this week, as Flynn JUST got here, but I think we all saw how far away Grayson was from being ready all training camp. Flynn was signed because of McCown's injury, yes, but probably also will get more reps as the backup than Grayson will.

If Drew should get hurt, I can't imagine Payton wants to throw Grayson to the wolves, especially with as poorly as we are pass protecting.
