Matt Flynn looks like he's about to throw like a girl in this picture. Just sayin'.
What we like:
Good, though not great arm strength
Not a scrambler, but not a statue, can move in pocket
Has been productive when given the chance to play
Green Bay’s offensive scheme shares elements with Seattle’s
Familiarity with Jon Schneider
What we don’t like:
If Green Bay franchises him he’ll be expensive, both in terms of draft picks and money
Ceiling is pretty low
Will never dictate tempo, probably a game manager
Very limited sample set of experience, primarily against two suspect secondaries
For some Seahawks fans it seems like a foregone conclusion that the Seahawks will pursue Flynn. While that may be true, it may come at a very high cost. Considering his trade value, the Packers may franchise tag Flynn, and Flynn will still be able to pursue a contract. It may not seem likely that they’d tag a guy who would be their backup, but the Patriots set that precedent when they franchised Matt Cassel. Flynn isn’t good enough for the kind of compensation—both draft pick and financially—that it took to get Matt Schaub, Matt Cassel, or Kevin Kolb.
