What follows are a handful of noteworthy early-week quotes from Packers players fresh off Green Bay’s 31-27 primetime loss to the Patriots

QB Matt Flynn on the team’s game plan against New England with him under center: "The plan was to go out and cut it loose. The plan didn't change because I was in. We went after them." (Source: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)

DE Ryan Pickett on the fact that Green Bay can guarantee itself a spot in the playoffs by winning out: “We love it. We control our own destiny, last two games at home. We’re working and getting better. We like that.” (Source: Green Bay Press-Gazette)

WR Donald Driver on the team having a chance to beat New England in the final seconds of the game: “You look at the clock with 15 seconds left, you’ve still got an opportunity to win. If you get the first down, you’re able to clock it and you still have two chances at endzone.” (Source: Packers.com)

S Charlie Peprah on his chance to tackle Patriots OT Dan Connolly on his 71-yard kickoff return: “I tried to go for the ball thinking he was a big man without ball skills. I should have just made the tackle.'' (Source: Associated Press)

WR James Jones on Flynn’s play in his first pro start: "I'm speechless. He came in and took control of this team. He played flawlessly, besides the turnover, which was my fault. He came in and stepped up. He's a great quarterback and he's got a bright future in this game." (Source: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
