This isn't like Cassell's situation where he played good the whole year and got the team to 11 wins. They aren't going to franchise this guy, and nobody would pay him that type of money even if he were franchised.

They will prob franchise Finley (if there is no deal) instead of Flynn.

re: What is Matt Flynn Worth to the Redskins

Flynn is more likely to be Kolb, Scott Mitchell, AJ Feeley, etc. than Schaub or Brees.. He's got a great team he's on and 4 years studying the system. I'm not sure he's got anything elite that he does that would be worthy of spending any real $ or picks on.

Agreed and by the time Kyle is through with him, he would be Ryan Leaf.

re: What is Matt Flynn Worth to the Redskins

Reposted from the other thread because it fits better here:

I'll probably say this a lot between now and mid-March, but Chad Henne is younger, more proven and has better tools than Matt Flynn. See for yourself:

Chad Henne NFL Football Statistics - Pro-Football-Reference.com

Matt Flynn NFL Football Statistics - Pro-Football-Reference.com

I'm not even sure I understand the argument for Flynn over Henne. We don't know how good Flynn is? The Packers are better at developing QBs than the Dolphins? A mixture of weak reasoning?

Henne should get at least one and a half times what Flynn gets in guaranteed money.

re: What is Matt Flynn Worth to the Redskins

re: What is Matt Flynn Worth to the Redskins

My concern with Matt Flynn is that he's played himself into beach front property value, while there's a lot of "under construction" and "foreclosures" on the market. Moreover, the market will irresponsibly set his current value based on one internet photo without performing proper inspections and/or due diligence. It's absurd. Doesn't make common sense and it doesn't football sense.

For that simple reason, I say pass on this dude. Too much risk incurred overnight, too many unknowns.

I'd be in favor of bringing in Henne to compete for a backup job and/or as a bridge starter. He hasn't been all that bad in Miami, just hasn't really developed into a frontline starter.

Right.

I wouldn't go out and put all my eggs in the Henne basket, but the Chargers didn't exactly put all their eggs in Brees' basket when they drafted Rivers high in the draft in 2004.

Chad Henne is not the best quarterback in free agency, but he's better than Flynn and he's the best "rest of career" bet in free agency. If you're going to give a deal longer than three years to any QB in this free agent class, he's the one you should give it to.

He's also a really good fit for our offense, but that doesn't even seem to matter to people anymore.

I wouldn't be against looking at Henne. He could benefit from a change of scenery.

I thought Henne was really turning a corner this year before he getting injured. For all the reasons you cite, I would take him in a heartbeat over Sexy Rexy as a stop-gap starter, long-term back up.

re: What is Matt Flynn Worth to the Redskins

I'd try henne as a backup, but he looks like a whole lot of average to me.

The perspective is that Flynn had one great game so he is the savior.
