Matt Flynn Likely Headed To Miami


The Seahawks are looking for a Quarterback, and one of the best free agent options might now be out of reach. If I had to bet, I bet that Green Bay backup Matt Flynn will sign with Miami Dolphins.

Why the Dolphins? Because Miami will be installing the same offense that Flynn ran in Wisconsin. Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin will be the Dolphins head coach next year. Obviously, that doesn’t rule out a move to Seattle or anywhere else, but it certainly makes it much tougher on anyone else trying to acquire the services of the quarterback.

Miami now can offer Flynn everything he’ll want. A guaranteed starting job, the right offense, a coach that he knows and trusts, a decent offensive line, weapons like Reggie Bush, and a boat load of cash. No other team can offer him all that.

For a team like the Seahawks, getting Flynn to join them is now a pretty tough sell. Flynn would have to learn a new offense with a group of coaches he doesn’t know, and with an offensive line that is talented but struggled in 2011. The Seahawks can’t offer Flynn a comparable contract to what Miami is offering, or he’ll simply chose the Dolphins.

The way I see it, the only way Flynn comes to Seattle is if the Seahawks overpay, and why would you want to overpay way more than the coaches who know him are willing to pay. That simply doesn’t make sense.

    If the Seahawks thought Matt Flynn was the answer, John Schneider would have known that, since he was with Matt Flynn in Green Bay for a couple of years. If that wast the case, I believe John would have traded for him last year.

    Matt Flynn is going to make a career off one game, and it’s not exactly fair. He’s not nearly as talented as Matt Cassel, who again, was over-hyped because of the team he played with.

    Signing Matt Flynn to a big contract would be like giving a pitcher a big contract because in the one game he ever pitched he threw a two-hitter.

    @Hawk_Eye Flynn wasn’t really an option a year ago. Players couldn’t be traded until too late, and Green Bay didn’t have another backup ready, so he wasn’t available.

    @Michael.Castillo It’s not the 1 game really. Anyone associated with Green Bay over the past few years just Raves about Flynn. Apparently he’s just awesome in practice, and the Packers have thought he could fill in for Roger long term if needed because of an injury.

    @Keith_12thMR@Hawk_Eye You might be right. I never considered that aspect.
