What to do with Flynn?
Wed Mar 13, 2013 7:18 pm
  • I have read here over the last few days that a number of people want the Hawks to trade Flynn. I understand trying to free up cap space but let's not overlook our high powered O is led by a QB that can and does run. I am aware he does not seem to take the big hits however we are one bad break (as all teams are) from having to utilize the backup QB. With this said I would rather keep an expensive backup than cheap out. Unless a good backup comes available and is willing to accept backup pay I would rather play it safe especially with all we have invested. If this is our best shot at making a real SB run we need to be fully covered at the most important position on e field. No guarantee that Flynn is amazing but he is probably better than most as a backup.

  • Well this has been discussed :)

    But time to go again?

    We differ in opinion but I say trade and sign a backup that fits like Vince Young or anyone not name Tebow.

    I am ok with the money spent in the qb position but Flynn isn't a natural fit in our system now.

    Cutting Flynn doesn't save enough. Has to be a trade in my book even if a 7th rounder :)

    Gives us the Russell Wilson like (at least in athletic ability) backup that Pete supposedly craves.

    i like that idea Terrell Pryor is a good back up QB

  • Cassel to the Vikes. So one less team and one less QB out there.

  • Saw John Clayton on ESPN today talking about a possible trade of Flynn to Oakland for a swap of picks, if Palmer is released, citing the Reggie McKenzie/Green Bay connection. How high of a swap would be worth it? I'd also be a fan of Flynn for Pryor straight up as mentioned prior.... hah. Anyways... your thoughts?

  • La Canfora tweeted that the Jags, Bills, & Raiders have all discussed Flynn & a trade could go down by the draft.

  • I want a third or higher.

    Rapoport just tweeted that New England won't trade Ryan Mallet unless it's for a first or maybe a second. Ryan freakin' Mallet. Even if no team will ever bite on New England's crazy demands, shows the value a good organization places on a capable back-up QB. Also, Hasselbeck is going to make $5 million next year to hold a clipboard for Luck, so don't give me the money argument.

    I'd take that. We'd almost be getting our original first round pick back. Plus Jacksonville has the #1 pick in the second round, if I remember right. That gives us all the time in the world to consider who's left. That's a pretty good deal for our first pick of the draft.
