I am not sure how the cap would affect either team but if the Bulk of Sanchez's contract hit the Jets and Seattle could extend MS to an incentive-laden deal then it would help their cap situation by us taking on Flynn's deal.
I think Flynn would be light years better than what we have endured on offense, specially if we could get some competent coaches.
I would draft someone like Wilson, Nassin, or Murray for insurance.
+1 and +1That right there pretty much assures me that it won't happen.
Jenkins is just a talking head IMO....
There is a small chance Sanchez can be traded however I'm not counting on it and it would be blissful. I think acquiring flynn while drafting qb this year have to be the FO's main priorities at this point in time. The O line is decent enough we just need a RB. On the defensive side of the ball we're all good if Landry is re signed and Bell doesn't retire.
Basically I believe if and only if we're able to acquire a game manager + type QB in the right system a la Alex Smith or possibly Flynn and draft young talent simultaneously at QB and O-line we can be and will remain competitive in future years. We need a strong offensive presence guru type coach with some leaders on O like Tj or Trich or even Lt types.....
I think this is what Jenkins wants, not his predictions.
Who says Flynn is any good after 2 games? Russell who no/1 knew would be good beat him out...kudos to Carroll
Since we are all repeating opinions for the umpteenth time I say again: Even if we bring someone in, it will be an open competition next year and Sanchez will end up starting again at some point. I get the impression he looks as good in practice as Tebow is bad.
And if he does fix some of his problems, is that really such a bad thing?
I'm not a Sanchez homer or apologist, just a realist. And I think he is going to look good on Sunday which will complicate things even more. You know Mangold, Slausen, Edwards and Keller will be playing their hearts out for him, and that could make a difference.
OK, I'm hunkered down, fire away.
Not an expert on NFL trades but wouldn't the team trading for Sanchez have to pay him what the Jets agreed to for next year?
Was he in, or out of a post knee surgery brace when he made these going out on a limb predictions?
Based on what ? His 2 game stint in GB. We'd be better off just drafting and starting a rookie QB , because essentially that's what Flynn is. Sure he's been on two pro NFL teams with offenses that look nothing like ours. He would be starting over with a new playbook , new terminology and new recievers. Plus if we get Flynn it all but insures Rex will go back to his ground n pound ways and want to use him as a game manager, so your not going to see the 400+ yards 6 TD GB performances.
Bottom line after this past year its unlikely that any team will want Sanchez w that hefty contract unless we ate it which really defeats the purpose. We are probably stuck with Sanchez battling a rookie and journeyman for the starting QB position next year.
Rex isn't going to get an RGIII or Luck anytime soon...if he stubbornly sticks with the ground/pound in a passing league that's on him not on whatever QB comes in.
Some people on this board crack me up.
When they're not busy attacking posters who they disagree with, they're attacking former players (Namath, Woody, Jenkins, etc.) who have opinions as well.
I imagine if Wayne Chrebet chimed in, those same people would accuse him of having brain damage.
But I think Jenks makes some good points. I am not sure what your issue is. Is it that you think he is a hypocrite?
