One of the great things about working at The Landry Hat, and the FanSided Sports Network, is our access to different experts. Since our network has a site for every NFL team, I’d thought I’d get an insider’s take on the upcoming Dallas Cowboys vs. Green Bay Packers game from “behind enemy lines”. Therefore, I present these five in-depth questions with a staff writer of our Packers’ site, Lombardiave.com, Dan Dahlke.

1. What are the chances quarterback Aaron Rodgers plays? If so, what do you expect from him? If not, what can we expect from the newly re-signed Matt Flynn?

DD: Right now, it’s still up in the air (as of Thursday). Rodgers has been practicing on a limited basis and took some reps with the first team offense this week. It seems he’s set to return soon, but it looks like the chances for that happening this Sunday is 50-50. The team should make a decision by Friday or Saturday.

 If Rodgers does play, I expect him to be pretty rusty. He hasn’t played in nearly six weeks. It might take him a bit to get on rhythm and play at his usual high level.

Flynn is a decent backup quarterback, but he lacks arm strength. If he starts, expect a lot of short passes as the Packers will rely on the run and efficient passing game to move the ball. Flynn also tends to hold on to the ball a bit too long, which can lead to more sacks than he needs to take.
