“Matt’s got a great game-day demeanor. He’s able to keep his emotions in check when there was obviously frustration,” Rodgers said. “You feel that. But I think he just couldn’t get in to a rhythm, and as a quarterback a rhythm is very important. And those rhythm throws you can have, whether it’s a quick-game (throw) or a checkdown, we just couldn’t get those things going. We had a lot of third-and-long plays, and those are just tough to convert. And when you’re not converting third downs, you’re not getting yourself more opportunities to throw it on first and second down, you’re going to be playing uphill. It was tough – tough to watch. [There was] a lot of frustration on the sideline.”
Flynn is hoping for less of that and more production Sunday. It’s hard to imaging things getting worse.
“Not getting any rhythm as an offense or a quarterback, that’s kind of an empty feeling – where the harder you keep trying, the more you keep digging yourself in hole,” Flynn said. “From getting the ball out, to making the right protection checks, to everything, just offensively in general, we were pretty bad.
“Obviously we didn’t do very well against it this past week. We’ve just got to do a better job, just go out there and execute and really (just) get some completions. Because once the offense catches a little bit of a rhythm, then I think we can do some good things.”
