I think Hawkfin needs to relax and have a couple of when it comes to our QB search.
This staff know's what it's doing. I don't have to post anything new that Philly hasn't already said.
It'll come, and them sticking to their gameplan and not throwing away draftpicks or money is music to my ears.
Sure, I could go for some
- As much as you're worried about pressuring the QB, I see our lack of a good offense/scores/drives/consistant Off as a MUCH bigger concern.
Since I agree (Staff seems to know what they are doing) I hope to see Flynn signed this week.
We've already spent draft picks and money on QB's. It's to late for saying that. I'm saying don't spend more on the foolishness that is Henne, when he is NOT the answer to anything. Flynn is not costing draft picks.
Sure, Flynn will compete with T. Jackson if brought in. Anybody brought in will (Less Manning)
But, Flynn as I see it will beat out T. Jackson easily. Then grow from there after a good year on the job.
If there is no QB worth going after as a franchise type QB, then fine, don't do it. But, why bother with Henne?
Plus, this is where we differ.
I have a real good feeling about Flynn. From what I've seen, I think he could become a franchise QB. At least major potential to be one. And I don't see us getting one next year either. Who do we get next year?
Flynn fits well within our system as he can move out of the pocket well. Comes from similar offense too.
I'm also not sure where his arm strength is in question either? He throws it DEEP and is accurate. He has a perfect touch on his deep ball. He is an "accurate" QB when given the chance and always finds success. He won his bowl game in college. Accuracy with Deep ball is what I'm looking for and he's got it. He's young and learned from a great system/QB play. I'm not sure what's not to like. His TD's to Int's are great and way better then Kolb.
He's got rushing TD's. Played in some big games. And if you watch him against NE, they were blitzing the cr@p out of him.
I also don't see how you guy's can possibly be happy with going with T. Jackson much longer?
I guess you want to suck/7-9 football for another year or whatever. Draft a guy after realizing how bad it is, by spending a 1st round pick on a rookie who may or may not be the franchise QB, which could mean more years of sucking. After all this, you're looking at 5 years and possible destruction of what's built. And during all this, teams will be picking away our nice Def young pieces that we had as they all become free agents.
Our Def. is close - We put some nice weapons on Offense - We need to shore up this QB thing sooner rather then later.
I'm not panicking as much as I see Flynn as a great option. And even if it doesn't work we have T. Jackson for another year to back it up. If this happens - We could then cut QB ties with everybody and put all the chips/draft picks in on a top prospect.
See what happens. See what they do. I'm still a fan just giving my .02.
