NFL  > Dallas Cowboys  > Is Matt Flynn being overlooked??
January 25, 2013, 11:35 AM
is there any interest in Matt Flynn from any team? seattle is not going to keep a $5.0 million/yr backup QB. he's almost certainly going to be dealed again. why won't dallas at least consider him? he always did an outstanding job at GBay when he was put in. he's 27 yrs old and could be a good backup or potential replacement for romo. just a consideration...

Because JJ would rather draft some bum that will never make it past 3rd string status.

he does seem to like looking for those players that no other teams seem to want!

Or draft them where nobody else has them slotted (hello Quincy)!!

Don't see it, 77... they are really up against it with the cap.

I agree Otis, expect the Seahawks to trade Flynn.

your probably right... wishful thinking. wondering if maybe JJ is assembling a staff that Gruden would be comfortable if garrett has another .500 season? just a thought....

That's probably who JJ has been seeking advice from.

Jerry Jones had Al Davis as his mentor.

Considering Jones was taking advice from a geriatric Davis is indeed depressing.

JJ used to be good friends with Al Davis. Look back in history and you see Al made some good drafts [back in the 1970's- 80's] one particular one was Bo Jackson, everybody knew he was going to play baseball and Al used a very low round pick, 7th round or later in those days, and in the end considered a very wise move. Al was praised for his abilities to make great picks.

Now I am probably wrong but my guess is JJ is trying to do the same thing, Romo going undrafted from a school no one ever heard of makes me think JJ enjoys being a GM a little too much and thinks he is good at it. When of course it is a crapshoot at best, Matt Millen with the Lions drafted some great players and they fizzled in the NFL and is he to blame?, no, those players would have gone to some other team in the next few picks. The system they go into has more is what matters, JaMarcus Purple Drank could have made it as a NFL in the right system, but Al told his coaches to go easy on him and he turned out to be the poster boy for over paying rookies.

Some talent is required but also a good system to bring these rookies into the NFL is also vital.

Because JJ is obsessed with showing how much smarter he is than everyone else - rehabbing injured players, drafting players with issues, or looking for the next unheralded no-name pro bowler vis-a-vis Larry Allen.

A good scouting system and a knowlegeable GM is the key to building playoff caliber teams.

It's not just lousy drafts when it comes to JJ but some terrible trades that he made too, like the Galloway and Roy Williams trades. He has one good trade to his name but that was more Jimmy Johnson than it was Jerry.

The Herschel Walker trade was more luck than skill as the Vikings were willing to give away the ranch for Walker. Jones has lived on that trade for the last 20 something years.

That is chiseled in stone here with the Bengals.

But they're slowly drafting a competitive team,maybe this year or the next,hopefully yer owner will do the same.
