Bottom line is that IF Flynn is brought in he is going to be given the starting job. I guess we have to trust Idzik on this one, he has watched him everyday in practice and should know best about him.
I don't think Flynn will be given the starting job. Many said the same thing last year in Seattle. Now if the Jets don't draft a guy in the first three rounds (and find our Russell Wilson, then yes he will be starting).
But also consider this, if we bring in Flynn and hand him the keys for 2013, nothing guarantees he will be starting in 2014.
Look at what Seattle did the past few years at the QB position. They kept bringing in guys every year trying to find their QB. Whether it was Whitehurst, Tavaris Jackson, Flynn. They were aggressive until they go their guy. Now they claim they are going after another type of back up.
I think we need to be this aggressive. This is what doomed Herm. We were complacent with Pennington despite all the injuries. The last 4 years we were complacent with Sanchez despite the fact the signs have always been there that he wasn'tt going to develop. Look back at the opening day game against Baltimore. I knew after watching that game, he was never going to be able to carry this team on his shoulders.
