And, on the Flynn thing, it's the same as with the Niners and their two QB's. Sure, they can afford it because Wilson and Kaepernick are cheap right now. But, do they want to spend a lot on a backup QB? We'll see. It's hard for me to believe the Hawks would keep Flynn if they had 100% certainty that Wilson could maintain the quality of play he exhibited for the last half of last season. The reason Alex Smith will be playing somewhere else is that the Niners coaching staff is absolutely certain they've got a franchise QB in Colin Kaepernick. I would expect the same kind of equation in Seattle if they're sure up there.
first off, Flynn is not making AS money, and RW is not making Kap money either... our QB money situation is not a problem in the least when it comes to cap Space... the only way they release/trade flynn is if we get something of value to us in exchange.. there is no other reason to release him... other than they feel bad that he's not getting a chance to start somewhere, which i think we both know is BullSh*t.. they could care less about his feelings..
and sorry i'm not buying the NFL didn't see Wilson coming story... all NFCW teams faced him in the first half, and had film on him from those games and other games.... and yet nobody could seem to come up with a plan to stop him the second time around.. why? because you can't... you may stop a play here and a there, but you're not going to stop him all game... and you're not going to stop him next year either.. again i posted this here before, you guys seem to think the key to shutting him down is forcing him to play in the pocket.. but his numbers are actually better in the pocket than they are outside.. that game plan has been tried and failed on more than one occasion....
i'm not trying to be cocky here, but let's be real.. he's the real deal, just like Kap.. you can game plan all you want, they both just have too many ways to beat you.. your best bet is to shut down the surrounding players instead..
