The Eagles have maintained a similar level of production after the departure of McNabb. Why any QB take should excessive credit or blame for another part of their team's fall from greatness is beyond me, but you continue to engage in that misattribution by using the stat of wins over looking at yards per game or passing touchdowns.

Hence, Andy Reid doesn't have to concern himself with his quarterback. Out of all the problems going for the Eagles, the starting quarterback is the least of his worries.

McNabb only threw for 3377 while Grossman threw for 3151, but Grossman had 14 fewer attempts and ten fewer completions. Most of McNabb's wins for have awful stat lines(every win except Tennessee), and he too had a 10-game interception throwing streak last season.

And what exactly is Donovan McNabb's record since leaving the Eagles? I'm sorry, what was that? I can't seem to hear you, must have a bad connection. What? You know, if I'm THAT big of a Donovan McNabb fan, I think I'd just follow him to the team he's currently on and start rooting for them.....oh wait....that's right, he doesn't have a team! Because he was cut midway through the season. Certainly sounds like a strong case for McNabb over Grossman....lol!

What CAN'T be debated is the fact that neither Grossman NOR McNabb are or was the right choice for the Redskins and their future. Live with it.

re: What is Matt Flynn Worth to the Redskins

Matt Flynn either needs to be a Brown or a Redskin. Right now the teams only two targets should be Flynn and RG3

re: What is Matt Flynn Worth to the Redskins

I am thinking that the green bay packers are going to franchise matt flynn. Then they will be looking to get a second round draft choice for him. . Similar to what the new england patriots did with matt cassel.

McNabb is a winner. Doesn't matter where he goes or how low his completion percentage is or how many Int's he throws. The guy just wins.

re: What is Matt Flynn Worth to the Redskins

Per Football Outsiders:
Flynn is 26 years old and has four years of apprenticeship in one of the best offenses in the league. His ceiling is Hall of Famer; his realistic floor is something at least close to a Pro Bowler. That's got to be worth more than an unproven rookie, doesn't it?



Quote:
Maybe Flynn will never win a Super Bowl like those men did. So let's not look at the best quarterbacks who have played this well; let's look instead at the worst quarterbacks to ever hit 290 DYAR in a game. In alphabetical order, that leaves us with Marc Bulger, Randall Cunningham, Green and Scott Mitchell. The first three names on that list were Pro Bowlers, and the fourth was essentially a league-average starter for a half-decade in the mid-90s.

Going a little further down the list, down to the 260-DYAR level, gives us more of the same: Pro Bowl quarterback after Pro Bowl quarterback, from Rodgers to Matt Hasselbeck to Carson Palmer to Rich Gannon to Steve Young to Drew Bledsoe to Bobby Hebert to Troy Aikman to Neil O'Donnell to Daunte Culpepper to Jeff Garcia. Obviously, some of those names are a lot better than others, but with the exception of Mitchell, every quarterback who has ever played even one game anywhere near Flynn's level played in Hawaii at least once in his career.

re: What is Matt Flynn Worth to the Redskins

Disagree with FO that his floor is pro bowler. His floor is career backup with misguided starting stint.

The problem wasn't the stats analysis, it was the way the question was asked: "what was the worst case outcome of a player who exceeded 290 DYAR in a single performance?" But the real question that wasn't asked there was "what parameters are consistent in any 290 DYAR performance (specifically, Scott Mitchell's)." It just so happens that Aaron Rodgers, playing in the Packers offensive system, with the Packers offensive talent, is having one of the greatest quarterback seasons of all time. Is Aaron Rodgers one of the greatest quarterbacks ever to play pro football? Maybe. But it's more likely that he's in the prime of his career right now because of the fertility of the offense around him.

Great stats -- ones that I use regularly -- poor analysis of the performance in a limited sample.

It all depends on how the FO sees him. If you think he's Matt Schuab you go for him . Even in spite of RGIII. Personally I love RGIII, he's a great QB prospect. However with all the injuries this year I can't take the idea of finally getting a QB only to have to worry about how often he'll be injured. Then again Vick has been surprisingly durable given his style of play.

Well, yeah, but the FO thought Donovan McNabb would be a pro bowl performer, and that John Beck would be a largely mistake free starter capable of executing the offense. What they think of Matt Flynn says nothing about Matt Flynn. Good or bad.

Bottom line, let someone else overpay for Flynn. Someone's going to do it. I just hope it's not us.
