Re: What is Matt Flynn Worth to the Redskins

I keep telling people that Matt Flynn is overrated. What is all the buzz about with this guy? He's a measly back up quarterback for one. A lowly 7th round draft selection. He's never been a starter like Carson Palmer, Peyton Manning, Jason Campbell, Donovan McNabb, or Michael Vick. He's a back up quarterback that just happened to play well in two lousy games. To just look at those two games that he played well in and to miss the fact that he's been in bench warmer in all the other games is to not to properly evaluate him.

Re: What is Matt Flynn Worth to the Redskins

If the coaching staff really thought highly of Matt Flynn, would they come out and say as much? Probably not.

It's not about each QB in their hay day or when they were drafted it's about at this moment. No he's not better then Palmer, Manning, or McNabb when they were drafted, but he's better then them right now. He's healthy which McNabb is not usually which is why I didn't want him. Palmer has not looked like himself after his ankle injury. Manning is not healthy and wouldn't probably start day one 2012. No one compares to Vick... cause his style is so much different. He's a Cam Newton or RGIII. They are more of a scramble first type of QB. Vick is changing though. But he has had trouble staying healthy a full season.

Then there is JC. I know what we had in JC and I was ready to move on. I'm not sure why but he stopped running for the 1st downs. He threw a lot of dirt balls like McNabb. He hardly looked down field to the open WR. He never moved in the pocket to buy himself time to let plays develope. I'm not sure Flynn will do it, but he did have a really good game against a really good team. It's not like he played some piss poor team and barely won.

Re: What is Matt Flynn Worth to the Redskins

The reason Matt Flynn is such the popular choice for me is the fact he is a FA or supposed to be. The Packers can not tag him and trade him. If they tag him they are keeping him. So they have to make a decision. keep him or let him walk. If he makes it to FA, we don't have to give up draft picks to get him, we don't have to trade away players to get him. It's just throw money at him to get him to come to the Skins. Dump Grossman and Beck, bring him in at whatever cost, and draft whoever is the next best QB on the list that fits our system for developement. Someone to take over later. Because I'm betting Luck and RGIII will both be gone by #6 and I don't want the Skins to just toss picks away for one player.

Pick up one or two WR's in FA and draft a WR for developement. I like Banks but he's a preseason monster and it does not carry over to the regular season. He takes up one roster spot for one position for one good run every year. Austin has looked good preseason but otherwise is invisible.

And they could still draft a QB in the second or late first if they trade down. If it doesn't work out it will be far less devastating than if RGIII doesn't work out after giving up several picks for him. They'll at least have a fall back with the rookie, and will still have all their picks in tact to make a move for someone like Barkley the following year. Flynn doesn't need to be all world for the Skins to be contenders. Niners and Ravens proved that.

Everyone seems to be no one side or the other on Flynn. He either sucks or is going to be great. Is it the end of the world if he just turns out to be solid? A solid QB with a little improvement to the D and running game would be enough to make the Skins a threat. The Skins won 3 Super Bowls with good, not great, QBs.

Re: What is Matt Flynn Worth to the Redskins

Matt Flynn – Flynn was a 7th round draft pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. He became hotly discussed after week 17 in 2011 when he started in place of Aaron Rodgers and went 31 for 44 for 480 yards and 6 TD’s (All now are new Green Bay Game records that are held by Flynn, not Starr, Favre or the aforementioned Rodgers.). At any rate Flynn has lined himself up for a big payday (Remember Matt Cassel in 2009 he signed a 6 year, $63 million contract with $28 million guaranteed, now think bigger than that). The simple signs point towards Flynn reuniting with his previous OC, now HC in Miami as a Dolphin. How do you keep him out of South Beach, “Show him the money” (If you think he is worth it with as little experience as he has, Im not necessarily sold on Flynn as a NFL Franchise Quarterback yet). I think Flynn flying south for the winter makes sense to me.

I think you nailed it.

Would ping on Smoot for this but some team tried to trade for Flynn at the start of the 2011 season. I wouldn't be surprised if Skins were involved.

Know we talked to the Broncos about Orton. Never heard anything about Flynn
