Former Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Flynn is one of the poster boys for being a one-hit wonder in the NFL.

Late in the 2011 season, Flynn filled in for Aaron Rodgers and threw for 480 yards and six touchdowns in the Packers' regular season finale against the Detroit Lions. The onetime LSU star parlayed that performance into a three-year, $20.5 million contract with Seattle.

Flynn would play in only three games for the Seahawks after being beaten out by Russell Wilson. He finished his career with the New Orleans Saints in 2015, but joked today on Twitter that the rash of COVID absences around the league has him thinking about a comeback.

When a Twitter user tried to dunk on Flynn by asking him about the time he got all that money from the Seahawks, the retired signal caller had the perfect response.

"Hell yes that was awesome," Flynn wrote.

Hey, it's not Flynn's fault the Seahawks wanted to pay him, and he wound up getting beaten out by an eventual Super Bowl champion in Wilson.

Sounds like the dude has no regrets with how his career played out. Good for him.
