I don't think Flynn has the arm strength to throw consistently in Cleveland weather. If they look at QB I expect it in the draft. Luck and RG3 will go 1-2 and there is no other 1st round qb talent, imo, after Jones recent play. If this plays out, Cleveland will have to trade up to get RG3 and with Altanta's first round pick they could package it.
Flynn will get a blockbuster deal in the first couple of days of FA but I expect it to be someone like the Dolphins, Seahawks or Jets (if the rumored arrival of Manning falls through). All three could be an immediate QB starter from the playoffs next year.
If this happens, I'd like Colt McCoy for a 3-4 pick and take someone like Tannehill to develop. This would also allow for getting someone like Morris Claiborne, Dre Kirkpatrick or Jayron Hosley (all CB's, whoever they fell is best) with the 6th pick or trade back and get one of the 3.

Cleveland will definitely show interest in Flynn. But from what I hear feeling isn't necessarily mutual

I don't think it asking too much that our QB situation not get worse each year.(Campbell to McNabb to Rex/BEck)

I don't think its too much to ask to have our QB finish better then 28th?

So unless 28th is okay with you there were better options.
My thoughts exactly.

I don't think we are ever going to agree with the "there were better options" part. Sure, but many of those options weren't that big of a upgrade and the cost for that minor upgrade wasn't worth it.

B.S, McNabb put up better numbers and he beat better opponents. Rogers, Vick, Romo, Cutler, etc. Rex has never beat any QB of that caliber besides Eli Manning. Plus McNabb threw for more yards, and less INT's. We would of been a playoff bound team with McNabb if the defense gave him a little more support, plus I can't count all of the dropped balls and missed field goal opportunities.

Are your hearing if the Redskins are interested and Matt Flynn's interest in the Redskins. I am sure yesterdays game will cause the Redskins along with everyone else to reevaluate Matt Flynn. I am sure he just popped on a bunch of teams radar.

re: What is Matt Flynn Worth to the Redskins

So everytime a back -up QB plays well he gets a thread? Did anyone watch that game? Cause I did and Detriot has got to be the worst defense in the NFL. Piss poor tackling, a lot of break downs in coverage. Not saying Flynn didn't do his part but I'm not giving up a lot to get him.

Its not out in left field buddy. He was already the top rated free agent QB. The knock was there was such a small body of work. Well he still has a small body of work, but he went in and blew the doors of the building. He also set a record, C'Mon Man.

Living in New Orleans, I've watched Flynn ever since he took over the reins at LSU from Jamarcus Russell. I have always thought he was underwhelming, not bad, just not impressive. I did watch the Green Bay game yesterday and was very impressed with his play. He played a great game and MADE plays, not just managed the game. I have to say, that I would view Flynn as an upgrade over Rex, but with so small a sample of his body of work in the pros, I fear that most Skins fans will be in for a rude awakening if/when he would become our QB. I believe that in Flynn we would be getting a 'game manager' in the mold of a Brad Johnson. Above average as far as game managers go, but no really outstanding skills or playmaking that bump him into the elite category. I have no problem with bringing him in, I just would hate to see the fans get all worked up, (like with McNugget), only to be let down when reality comes crashing down once again.

LOL! Please put the crack pipe down. McNabb is finished. That's why Philadelphia was willing to give him up to a division opponent.

I hope and think the Skins stay away from Flynn. I could see him playing for the Jets though and maybe Sanchez is reunited with Pete Carol in a three way deal.

I really want to see what Beck can do with OTA's and minicamps.
