Maybe a 7th round pick with a 62% completion percentage, 9 TDs, 5 INTs, and 2 fumbles in a limited number of games isn't that great? He's got more of a chance to be Kevin Kolb than he does Tom Brady IMO.

I'm not saying that we shouldn't get him but...Flynn is very high risk because there is such limited film on him and he played well under relatively ideal conditions (several years learning one system). If you are risk-averse, Flynn may not be your guy.

Again I see the stats but coming from a team that just had rex and beck, idt we should skip on anyone

Re: The Big Rumor: If The Colts Take Luck, Then Manning Could Be...

It sounds as if Mel Kiper came out with some breaking news that the Redskins have declared they are not interested in Matt Flynn.

But that's not the case at all, Mel was merely on a conference call with reporters and in answering one of several QB questions said that he has heard (and I've brought this up here before...since Mel and I are the same person...j/k) that the Redskins are not really interested in Flynn, that they don't value him as highly as people believe.

On the other hand, Chris Russell says they are indeed very interested.

It's all informed speculation at this point. No one knows for sure because it's simply too early to know. It's no report per se. Look, a couple of years ago I told you all that the Redskins had no interest in Julius Peppers based on what I'd heard. Other "insiders" said they did...turns out they didn't. Last year both Chris Russell and I heard (perhaps from the same source) that the Redskins were serious about Sidney Rice...turns out they weren't

All I'm saying is, while Mel and I (and others) don't think the Redskins are seriously interested in Flynn, there is nothing to really report. So don't take what anyone speculates at this point as gospel.

I feel like we go through this same drill every offseason. People get all riled up over rumors and speculation.

It's boring waiting for April. They should do what NASCAR does and have a 2 month off season.

Kids are inching closer and closer to the cliff.


I especially get a kick out of reports like this.

NFL Draft 2012: Mel Kiper Jr. Says Washington Redskins Could Select Quarterback, 'Don't Have A High Opinion' Of Matt Flynn - SB Nation DC

Kiper hears info from "grapevine" they aren't interested.


The same day, this article and report comes out.


Report: Skins 'very interested' in Matt Flynn - Rotoworld.com

Skins very interested in Flynn.





The days of reading Vinny like a book are over. You never know the types of smokescreens are being thrown around. I can see Shanny sitting back telling reporters bullshit just to get a storm created and laughing his ass off. Point is, you can't believe anything until it happens. Even if it is correct info at the time, chances are it'll change before it ever happens. That said, we aren't interested in Flynn.

Re: The Big Rumor: If The Colts Take Luck, Then Manning Could Be...

If I were Shanahan I'd say I'm interest in any QB the throw at me

"Coach, how would you feel about getting Peyton Manning?"
"Oh I'd love to have Peyton on this team."

"Mike how do you feel about Luck?"
"He's the best QB in this draft, I'd sure love to have him"

"how about RG3?"
"Oh man I'm going to do whatever to get him"

"Flynn?"
"Oh I'm very interested in him"

"Jeff George?"
"He's the great QB we need"

haha

Excellent points you make. I played fantasy football this year, and so I watched the talking heads on the NFL Network every week. They were always frustrated with Shanahan because they never knew who would start for the Redskins, especially at running back. Mike husbands his information, gives nothing away. Same deal in the offseason; he gives nothing away. He guards every morsel of information. Makes it hard for fans and analysts to get solid offseason info. That leaves us with nothing but speculation to talk about, which can be fun, but probably not worth getting too excited about. Just have to wait and see what happens.
