Well, exactly. I've seen tape. From LSU, Green Bay and Seattle. Enough now to know what he is physically. Enough to appreciate why there wasn't much of a market last year.
You suggested Flynn's financial package is attractive, but not really. It's still $7-8m. That's a lot for a career backup. And people need to get over this being a crappy draft for QB's. There's still three viable first round options. Three options that are still more attractive than a near 30-year-old backup. It's wishful thinking that any 'desperate' (or not) GM is going to turn to Matt Flynn. The best we can hope hope for is to off-load his contract for minimal return. I still maintain what is more likely - he will be cut. He'll go somewhere else for an 'opportunity'. And probably not win the job there either.
No offense but were you not the person that stated nobody wins if they don't take a QB in the first 10 picks in todays pass happy NFL this last season?
Before e get into a pissing contest, Flynn when able has shown he can get the job done, both at LSU and at Green Bay. Just becasue a guy can't run a 4.5 40 or have a Newton like arm doesn't mark him as a failure.
Wilson has shown having a brain can take you much farther then physical attributes, Unitas, Tarkenton, Montana, Flutie, Brees, Jurgenson, Stabler, all had limitations in size, throwing motion, arm strength etc, but all were wiley and smart and competitors.
I love seeing guys that don't fit the cookie cutter have to be this way or will bust prove everyone wrong because the measurable of intelligence, heart, and competitiveness can't be put on a chart and has shown it's face time and time again to be the difference maker at all levels of sports.
Flynn has proven he is a quick thinker and works hard by reputation, when asked has stepped up when ever asked. I believe his injury derailed him this pre season and Wilson just took it and ran, not Flynns fault that we happen to draft an enigma.
