Pretty sure this was the same awkward attempting to connect the dots argument that people were making with Gamble and Alex Smith.
We have no idea what Idzik's opinion on Flynn is, he might be a Russell Wilson guy and part of the reason Flynn wasn't even starting for all we know. If that's the case odds are against him bringing him into here. Having inside information does work both ways.
I still say it's far more likely our next QB will be drafted, but if we did trade for someone it's probably someone on a rookie contract like Foles simply because of the salary cap situation.
I have no clue what Flynn is. But I do know what Sanchez is and have no interest in seeing him as our starter on opening day
Am I the only guy that's watched Sanchez these past 2 seasons
If The seahawks trade Flynn they take a 4 mil cap hit for the prorated SB
So it will cost them 12.75 mill and all of their available cap space (after rookies) in order to get a worse back up qb.
And why do you think the seahawks would ever consider such a thing.
Now if the jets wanted to do a salary dump, the would need to identify a team like the bengals who have 40 mill is space and trade him and a good pick for a 7th. The Bengals get closer to the 90% cap floor and and pick up another top 100 pick at cheap labor prices for 4 years.
- totally agree Sanchez sucked this year, absolutely sucked. can you name me one quality player he had on offense supporting him though? he had peicemeal garbage.
- in 2011, the man had 32 TDs, and have you ever seen a QB with a 32-TD season get absolutely berated by the media all offseason long with "hes not the answer, hes terrible, etc." after 3 seasons of 2 AFC champ's, and one 8-8 season?
Philip Rivers had just as many turnovers, and talk about regression....but he is in San Diego, so to the "fan-public", he is not as bad as somebody in NY..
why do people want Flynn? he was beaten out by a rookie.
why would Idzik bring Flynn? he saw, first-hand, how he got beat out by a rookie.
im realistic. Hes not great and hes never going to be Manning or Brady - good luck finding that. I say we draft Barkley (who gives a crap if he went to USC, he is a different person than Sanchez. I went to college with my best friend and we are different people - it doesnt mean we throw the ball the same way), or draft Nassib or another QB, have them come in and compete, learn under Sanchez. If we see more of the same with Sanchez in the first 3-4 weeks, we throw the youngster in there. If Sanchez finally plays how he is capable of playing, we stay with him.
the main problem isnt Sanchez, it is way more than that. RBs, WRs, TE, O-LINE - all needs to be blown up or pumped up. If we get that, Sanchez can be good for us...
I don't think the unknown Flynn is the answer to Jet's problems. It feels good but he couldn't even start on his own team.
I don't think ANY GM is going to hamstring themselves in 2013 by making such a bold deal. 2013 is a rebuilding year - any way you cut it - and Rex may be gone in 2014. A GM is going to want to take a conservative approach and build through the draft.
So what - even if we stick with Sanchez - it's one more year that isn't going to be great anyhow. With a few better players the Jets are capable of going 6-10/9-7 with Sanchez - why bother hunting for some panacea when the rest of the team isn't ready for a big push? Far too much to fix atm - and far too little flexibility.
I'd be in favor of taking a chance on Flynn for a mid-round pick. It's a quarterback driven league and we don't have one, that is priority #1. Been reading countless times that the upcoming draft doesn't have many promising QB's and I don't want to wait another year to at least try to address this
Guys. Are we really trying to make the playoffs in 2013? If not, who gives a crap if Sanchez starts or not. I'd rather do what's in the best interests of the 2014 cap at this point and if that means Sanchez starts in 2013, I'm fine with that.
He has zero trade value. It sucks, but we are stuck with him. The only change that makes sense is if a rookie can come in (like Wilson) and beat him out. No worries about Sanchez sitting on the bench:)
Rivers didnt have a great year, I could care less about him.. he still had a qb rating of 88 in his worst year..and still has a career 94 rating.. He threw for over 4,600 yards last year..over a thousand more yards than mark.. Sanchez rating 78 last year, 66 this year.. He ran for 6 tds last year. I cant even understand how fans still defend this guy..
That the Jets ineptitude regarding QB grooming has made the whole Sanchez thing probably not repairable. I think that the Sanchez who showed up here four years ago had a chance to be a good to a very good QB. Not one poster before he was drafts said that he was Montana, Brady, Kelly or Elway etc. for the Jets to act like he was insanity of the highest order.
Did Sanchez go around calling himself the "Sanchize"? No
Only are HC and FO did that. They had a real chance two years ago to trade Sanchez if they just wanted a game manager and aren't going to build around him and they said no. Now we as fans reap the salute of their folly.
