I have seen here how some people like flynn or manning etc or how they feel we should gut 2 drafts for Luck or RG3 .
My question is what do you guys want to do ? let me go over the options with the assumption that Luck and RG 3 are gone . I dont see the need to go over how to get either guy or whether we should . Any reasonable fan knows if we can get them we should .
Lets look at Flynn . he has 2 NFL games on his resume' and has done well in both . Some say that isnt enough and that he is the next Kolb . They also say he isnt a franchise qb and his WRS do the heavy lifting . Ok I say that is fair enough. However the question is what do you want Flynn to do ? Do you sign him because he is better then Rex/Beck and their 31 turnovers ? Are you signing him to be "the answer " ? For me personally i sign him because he is better then any qb on our roster and if he can cut the turnovers in half then I think that can give us 3 more wins . I would definitely still draft a qb before round 2 ends and then another late . I dont expect Flynn to be "the savior" . I expect him to allow us to actually compete in some games
Now here is a list of other qb s that could be available via trade or free agency Cassell , He is a stop gap that shouldnt turn the ball over much . Orton same thing . Sanchez , young guy who had a better season then any of our other qbs . He is avg and will need play makers around him . Alex Smith another avg qb Again he is better then Rex/Beck . Moore again he is better then what we have and he is AVG .
Thats the problem people we are looking bat bringing in an AVG vet qb to manage the game but that seems unacceptable to most of you .
Now lets look at Manning . He is 37 years old , has health issues , but he could be the best temporary solution we have albeit an expensive one . Personally if we sign him this says we are close to a playoff run and would be the same mistake we have made throughout the Snyder era . Then our draft will be all about putting offensive play makers around him and protecting him . We can benefit from this but to me signing Manning wreaks of Jason Taylor , and the rest of the signings of the over 30 player in hopes of catching some glory .
To me our most likely scenario is we sign or trade for one of the above AVG qbs , and then we draft a Tannehill, Foles, Weeden in round 2 or something . We would then hope you can get them up to snuff by midseason . I would then draft a Wilson or Lindley type later in the draft as well .
So my question to the anti-Flynns or avg qb guys is what do you do if Luck and RG 3 are gone or we cant make a deal ?
