Up to 280 yds now on 19/29, the game isn't on in the Y-Town area, is anyone actually watching it? Statistically looks good.

Ryan Grant(notes) 1 80yds 80.0avg 1 TD


Browns have anyone that can take it 80 yds?

...and 7 different rcvr's

I say the Browns do not have 7 players capable of catching a pass in game time

He was also aided by a dead ball jump ball to Nelson, and a long mob td late in the game.

THAT being said, WOW. What a freaking game...definitely got a big contract.coming.

He won a long time ago when he started hooking up with former LSU dance teamer and Miss Louisiana, who is now his fiance. She's a fucking piece if I've ever seen one.

or Matt Schaub'd haha, I know he's the exception to the rule, possibly the only one I can think of, but if we win this game, I wouldn't mind taking a flyer on Flynn.

I was just thinking that it's about time someone started a Matt Flynn thread. :hide:

I didn't see the game. I just hope it isn't an excuse to not go up and get Luck or RG3.

Bottom line is someone has to take snaps next season.

And the Browns tried to pry Flynn away from the Packers in the summer of 2010. It wouldn't surprise me if the Browns were the ones to get Scott Mitchelled this offseason. All it costs is Lerner's money and he's shown he's more than inclined to piss it away.

This org has also shown it's more than inclined to fuck shit up.

Flynn is 6'2" tall and 220lbs with an average arm and good accuracy.

That sounds like every fucking QB Holmgren talks about, signs and drafts. Let me know when he finds one.

I'd rather see them get Griffin in the draft than take a chance on someone's backup. Isn't that what they did with Wallace? He's not bad but he's not the answer as a starting QB.

If they draft a quarterback, it will have to be Griffin, since Luck is presumably going to the Colts. Hopefully with the #4 pick, and St. Louis and Minnesota ahead of them, the Browns won't have to trade up to get him with their top pick.

Any other bottom-barrel franchise would take Griffin, and the best WR or RT available, in the first round (the other two positions that need addressed the most). But this is the Browns, and that would make too much sense. So I bet they will overpay the Packers for Flynn and end up with two backup quarterbacks competing for the starting job.

As a wise man once said, if you have two quarterbacks, you really have zero.

Everything else aside, this board is assuming Matt Flynn would sign with Cleveland.

He's no more likely to sign here than Peyton Manning if the Colts cut him.

There will be a big market for FA QBs this offseason, and Cleveland will not be at the top of ANYONE's list.

I'm already bracing myself for Seneca Wallace in Week One. SSDD

On this team, if nothing else changes, there's not much difference between Seneca Wallace and Matt Flynn. You can lose with either.

Can the Packers slap the franchise tag on Flynn and then try and trade him, as opposed to just letting him walk?

They could. But then he's making about $16m/yr to back up Rodgers if they don't deal him and that franchise tag is a one year tender. That means the team he's dealt to would have to negotiate a long term deal if they wanted to keep him anyway because the team that trades for him doesn't get the exclusive negotiating rights.

Section 8. No Assignment: No Club may assign or otherwise transfer to any other Club the exclusive negotiating rights or any Right of First Refusal it may have for any Franchise Player, nor any Right of First Refusal it may have for any Transition Player, nor any designation rights it may have.


http://www.patscap.com/franchise.pdf

* An "exclusive" franchise player must be offered a one-year contract for an amount no less than the average of the top five salaries at the player's position as of a date in April of the current year in which the tag will apply, or 120 percent of the player's previous year's salary, whichever is greater. Exclusive franchise players cannot negotiate with other teams.

* A "non-exclusive" franchise player must be offered a one-year contract for an amount no less than the average of the top five salaries at the player's position in the previous year, or 120 percent of the player's previous year's salary, whichever is greater. A non-exclusive franchise player may negotiate with other NFL teams, but if he signs an offer sheet from another team, the original team has a right to match the terms of that offer, or if it does not match the offer and thus loses the player, is entitled to receive two first-round draft picks as compensation.

Non-exclusive franchise tag for QBs this year? $16m

Which is why not one QB is franchised. The Packers would be guaranteeing Flynn $16m in 2012 hoping someone else would sign him for two 1st round picks.
