Packers QB situation still up in the air

Green Bay Packers coach McCarthy reacts to a call during their AFC-NFC NFL football game against Kansas City at Arrowhead Stadium

(WNFL) - The Green Bay Packers have not said who they'll start at quarterback on Sunday at home against Atlanta -- but whoever it is, they hope to protect him a little better.  Last week, Green Bay was in the N-F-L's Top-10 in the fewest sacks given up with 25.  That total is now 32, after Matt Flynn was sacked seven times in the Packers' 40-to-10 Thanksgiving Day loss at Detroit.  Rookie left tackle David Bahktiari said it's been a top priority to make the quarterback feel comfortable.  That was after Aaron Rodgers was sacked a league-high 51 times in 2012.  Rodgers only went down 18 times this season before he broke his left collarbone on a sack against Chicago on November fourth.  The offensive linemen and their coaches believe a stronger running game has helped cut down on the sacks.  Guard Josh Sitton said defenses can no longer quote, "tee off every time knowing it's going to be a pass."  The Packers are 5-6-and-1, and they'll host an Atlanta team on Sunday that's 3-and-9.
