I wasn't referencing the draft position. Notice I said NOTHING in regards to their position. I said 1st round talent and late round talent. I'm referencing the grades they were given on their abilities.


This whole Flynn shit reminds me of the whole Cult Brennan fiasco. Dude had a stellar pre-season and all of a sudden he's All-Pro.

There is a reason why Flynn was a late round talent and why Rodgers was a 1st round talent. I don't think I see anything identical about those two.
Because Flynn is an unrestricted free agent that won't cost draft picks for years to come and because Green Bay back-ups have a pretty good track record and because he's had 4 years to develop. Meanwhile, Yates is a rookie under contract and his coaches thought Matt Leinart was more worthy of being Matt Scaub's back-up. Doesn't mean he won't turn out to be legit. Just 2 totally different set of circumstances.

Rodgers was once a 2nd stringer behind a great qb and people questioned him based on little play.. not saying he's another Rodgers... but that doesn't mean he is Curtis Painter either

Rodgers was drafted as a #1 QB. He was to take over the reigns for Farve when he walked away. It just happened that Brett took longer than they probably wanted. Rodgers was already telling them if they weren't going to start him, he wanted out after his rookie contract ended.


Flynn on the other hand was drafted to be a backup. They'd laugh if he told them the same thing. Huge difference.

Re: What is Matt Flynn Worth to the Redskins

I don't know if it will be Flynn but we have to sign a QB in the FA period. That way if we decide to trade up in the draft teams can't demand the world. We are going to pay alot to trade up, but it will be alot more if we don't have a contingency plan.

Yup. And that FA can't be Rex, because he gives us no leverage

Re: What is Matt Flynn Worth to the Redskins

Big assumption but assuming MS likes Flynn, I wouldn't be opposed to offering him a contract and using a high draft pick on a QB. I don't think Matt Flynn will get huge money. Let's look who needs a QB:
Cleveland- Will most likely draft one
Miami- Just went thru several seasons w/ Henne, are they willing to gamble again w/ Flynn?
Seattle-Maybe

So you get Flynn & Griffin/Tannehill/Foles/or anyone else MS likes.

Flynn Starts year 1. There's a few scenarios:
1. Flynn is very good. This is the best scenario. Now you have a good problem, a good starter and a legit trade piece.
2. Flynn is bad. You've got a young QB ready to take over.
3. Flynn is mediocre. You've still got a guy ready to take over.

We've got some money to play w/. Don't break the bank but it's worth the discussion and I'm sure they've had it.

We're assuming the Shanahan think highly enough of Flynn.

You think if we found a way to get Flynn and Griffin, and Flynn does well, we would really trade Griffin?

The top free agent QB is going to want to make sure that he gets a one year grace period when it comes to acquiring other top tier QB prospects. I seriously doubt that drafting RGIII would sit well with him not to mention it would negate the flexibility that Matt Flynn would give us in the draft to take the BPA.

And make no mistake about it. Matt Flynn is not going to come cheap. Maybe cheap by Peyton Manning/Tom Brady QB standards. Still look at what these unproven but highly touted QB's got.


2007 - Matt Schuab - 6 Years $48 Million - $7 Million Signing Bonus
2009 - Matt Cassell - 6 Years $63 Million - $28 Million Signing Bonus
2011 - Kevin Kolb - 5 Years $63 Million - $20 Million Signing Bonus
2011 - Ryan Fitzpatrick - 6 Years $59 Million $15 Million Signing Bonus

If any of you think that Flynn would come with a low signing bonus and a $4 million a year cap hit at most then you're nuts.

We would have the option of trading either Flynn or Griffin. If Flynn came in and played very well, we would then have options. One option would be to keep Flynn and trade Griffin. Of course, if MS thought highly enough of Griffin after one year, he would have the option of trading Flynn. Having two QB's gives us a better shot to find one good one and gives us more options down the road.

Assuming we like Flynn, I'm all for it.

Don't think you can compare Flynn to these guys those. Schaub and Kolb were both higher round picks with higher grades on their potential/skills. Cassell and Fitzpatrick played well for more than just 2 games. They did it for a whole season.

I'm not sure he's going to get that type of money, as those 3 above. Flynn has started 2 games, I believe. The 3 above all had 1 season + in starts. Flynn is a bit of an unknown.

I'm not sure I see him getting over 25-30 million. It wouldn't totalling surprise me though. I guess it depends what the scouts see in him. I just don't see that much demand.
