Flynn Signs With Seahawks; Dolphins Conundrum?

Matt Flynn

Free-agent QB Matt Flynn has agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks Sunday. Flynn will likely compete with Tarvaris Jackson for the starting job next summer. Although, with Tarvaris already comfortable with a year under his belt, six total years in the Darrell Bevell offensive system, odds are Matt Flynn will find himself the back-up QB once again.

Free-agent QB Matt Flynn has agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks Sunday. Flynn will likely compete with Tarvaris Jackson for the starting job next summer. Although, with Tarvaris already comfortable with a year under his belt, six total years in the Darrell Bevell offensive system, odds are Matt Flynn will find himself the back-up QB once again.

The hype on Flynn was a little ridiculous in the early stages of free agency. It took only the releasing of Peyton Manning to realize the guy has played only 2 games, and there was far better QB options to go after. Still, talent is talent, and Flynn is a smart young quarterback that has been learning of one the best passing offenses in the game.

I was actually convinced the Packers would go as far as franchising Flynn, to gain extra trade value come free agency. But the QB market turned out to be a little deeper than expected. Don’t tell that to the Miami Dolphins though, who may have somehow positioned themselves in between a rock and hard place. When Peyton Manning looked like a heavy favorite to land Miami, the Dolphins played it cool, yet after Reggie Wayne decided to re-sign with the Colts, instead of going back to the state where he played his college ball, the momentum shift started to swing. The lure of getting rid of trouble maker Brandon Marchall didn’t work, and now the Dolphins are out of the Manning race (as far as we know) lost their plan B. quarterback in Matt Flynn, and are now forced to take a look at Alex Smith from the 49er’s.

Matt Flynn had a great chance to start in Miami, yet for some reason chose Seattle over a reunion with former Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin, now the head coach in Miami.

A bit confusing I know, but in hindsight, the Dolphins should have probably signed Matt Flynn immediately, regardless of having a shot at Peyton Manning. It’s always better to be safe than sorry. If this was a game a blind-folded musical chairs, the Dolphins just fell on their butts.
