Packers end preseason on strong note

(WNFL)- The Green Bay Packers closed out a 3-1 exhibition season with a 34-14 home win over Kansas City last night. Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien each threw a pair of touchdown passes, as they competed to become Aaron Rodgers' top backup. Tolzien threw for 139 yards, and Flynn 102, as they gave coach Mike McCarthy a tough decision on which one to keep -- or both. McCarthy and Packers' general manager Ted Thompson have until 5 pm tomorrow to trim down their roster from 75 players to 53. McCarthy calls it "the worst part of their jobs." Tolzien, a former Badger, said he hopes the Pack will keep three quarterbacks around -- but he has no idea what will happen. McCarthy said he was impressed with how the Packers kept getting better during the pre-season. They led by 13 at the half and rolled from there, on a night when numerous starters never dressed so the coaches could evaluate players on the bubble one final time. Seventh-round rookie receiver Jeff Janis made a case for a roster spot with a touchdown catch and a 62-yard kickoff return. Green Bay linebackers Nate Palmer and Adrian Hubbard left the game with knee injuries, as did tackle Aaron Adams. Kansas City's third string quarterback, Tyler Bray, threw for 116 yards and a touchdown. The Chiefs' reserves committed 14 penalties on the night. The Packers will open their regular season next Thursday night at Seattle.
