Flynn's stock was elevated solely by that 1 game against the Lions. He is not starting material just ask Joe Philbin or Pete Carroll. I can see why people are clamoring to replace Sanchez ( although I believe for unfounded reasons entirely) , I just can't see why they want to replace him with a question mark who's never been good enough to start anywhere he went besides HS. It would take 3 weeks for the fanbase to turn on him , if we're going to upgrade the position , then upgrade it , don't just throw **** at the wall and hope it sticks.
You are saying that people wanting to replace Sanchez is unfounded? I never saw Flynn play in College so I can't speak to his abilities then but I've watched Sanchez for 4 years. He is not a starting caliber QB. He is a head case and a butt fumbler. I'd like to replace him with anyone. Flynn played well in his one start that I watched. Granted he may be the next Scott Mitchell but at the cost of a 4th round draft pick the risk reward seems worthwhile to me. The alternative is a guy like Taylor Bray or EJ Manuel in the 3rd or 4th round of the draft. I don't see how those guys are more NFL ready or have higer upside then Flynn but if they are drafted and start I will root for them and hope for the best.
