McCarthy not sure about back-up plan at QB

ORLANDO, Florida (WXOW)  There's still some items on the Packers post-season shopping list that need to be addressed.
    One off the radar is the back-up quarterback situation.
    The Packers love Scott Tolzien.
But it was Matt Flynn who rescued the team late and led them to two wins and a tie during the last half of the season.
    Flynn is a free-agent and the Packers haven't kept three quarterbacks in recent years.
    But it's something they'd consider for next season.
"Personally, I would love to have 3 quarterbacks on 53 man roster, but that is why you have an off season program, and that is why you have training camp. We are going to pick the best 61 players that we feel give us the best opportunity to win the World Championship," said Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy.
McCarthy made those comments while attending the NFL's owners meetings in Orlando.
