Matt Flynn, Former LSU Tigers Star, Starting For Injured Aaron Rodgers

Since this sidebar blog has become nothing but a catalog of former SEC quarterbacks who are getting rare starts for NFL teams this week, here's another: LSU Tigers QB Matt Flynn will get the start for the Green Bay Packers this Sunday over the concussed Aaron Rodgers.

This will be the first start in the third-year passer's NFL career. He's seen time in a few games, throwing 46 times and getting sacked a whole heck of a lot.

In college, Flynn helped lead the Tigers to the 2008 BCS National Championship Game, being named the MVP of the team's win over the Ohio St. Buckeyes. A few years prior, he entered the 2005 SEC Championship Game against the Georgia Bulldogs in the third quarter after starting QB JaMarcus Russell left with an injury (REMEMBER THAT GUY?). Sophomore Flynn threw the interception that sealed the game, giving Mark Richt his second SEC title in four years.
