I think most of us were impressed with Flynn's huge game against Detroit. I know I'm not the only one who was drooling over 480 YD's, 6 TD's and 1 INT. Now, i know that a few people will say "It's one game, you can't judge him on that one game." Noted. Okay, lets cut the stats from that game in half, 240 YDS, 3 TD's and I will even stick with 1 INT. Now for the fun part. Colt McCoy's top 3 games this year: 215 YD's 2 TD's, 0 INT. 350 YD's, 1 TD, 1 INT. 213 YD'S, 2 TD's, 1 INT. That's out of the 13 games Colt started vs the ONE Flynn started. Which would you prefer?
"Okay, well Green Bay has a much better offense than Cleveland." While this is true, why not take a chance anyways? I would settle for half of Flynn's stats in that game. I am no longer a believer in McCoy. He's a great kid, but I don't think he has what it takes to be our franchise player and from what i read on here, plenty of you agree. Flynn has spent 4 seasons as an understudy to one of the NFL's elite Quarterbacks and not to mention they run the WCO. Getting Luck is out of the question, besides if the Colts did want to trade the 1st pick, it would cost 2 arms, 2 legs and a ear. Yes, there is talk about the Pack slapping that Franchise tag on Flynn, but that is still not certain because they might need it for Finley. So best case scenario, he hits free agency and we get hit straight up without losing any of our draft picks. Awesome, now we can spend them on getting him some weapons and filling the remaining holes on defense and not worry about spending a pick on a QB. Worst case scenario, Pack franchise him and we would give them our ATL 22nd pick or if H&H can wheel and deal, they take our 2nd rounder. Now if that happens, their are a few teams that have shown solid interest in RG3, and we could possibly trade down for a 1st and 2nd or 3rd. Not bad for dropping a few spots down if you ask me.
Maybe Flynn will never be a Brady, Manning or Rodgers, but i know he has more of chance than anyone that has been a QB on our team since '99. Yes it might be risky, but to me at least, the rewards far exceed the risk. Tell me what you think.
