Joe Philbin Will Bring In Matt Flynn


In all likelihood Joe Philbin will bring in Matt Flynn to be the Dolphins starting quarterback.  Matt Flynn in his ONE game as a starting QB in the NFL showed absolute signs of greatness.  He broke every major statistical mark for a Green Bay quarterback for a single game.

Flynn was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the 7th round (209th overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft.  This was the same draft the Dolphins selected Chad Henne in the 2nd round (57th overall).  Flynn was the 2nd quaterback drafted by his home team, having been surpassed by Brian Brohm (56th overall).  This is only to mention 2 of the the 11 QBs taken before Flynn.  Now, he might be coming in to be our savior.

As a one-year starter for the LSU Tigers, Flynn won a National Championship.  Although he was a Nick Saban recruit, his Championship did not come until after Saban departure.  His college career was mostly spent as the backup to JaMarcus Russel.  So far, Flynn has proven to be a better and more successful quarterback than Russel ever was.  Flynn’s NFL career has been spent as a backup to Aaron Rogers in Green Bay under then Offensive Coordinator and current Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin.

Being that they have worked together in Green Bay since Flynn entered the league, I think there is a high probablity that the Dolphins will pursue and persuade Matt Flynn to sign and start.

After a wonderful performance in the aforementioned single start during this 2011 season, Matt Flynn has quickly emerged as a top QB free agent this upcoming off-season.

    I really hope we get flynn. Keep Moore as a backup. And develop pat devlin some more and then maybe devlin could be the next Flynn and we can get some good picks for him.

    I agree with Bill. Flynn is the lowest cost option from a personnel perspective. We know with almost absolute certainty that RG3 will be drafted before us. When we can have Flynn for nothing more than a few more dollars out of Ross’ wallet, why not!?! Otherwise, say goodbye to our first two picks this year and maybe one next year. Also, drafting a guy like Tannehill would be great, but the season starting with Matt Moore behind center leaves me less than enthused to say the least!

    Flynn started two games in the NFL. His other game was a very good game in a loss to NE.

    If the Dolphins get Matt Flynn, go for Blackmon at WR. I would rather be doing what Green Bay is doing over the Dallas Cowboys.

    I, for one, don’t know much about Devlin, but would be worthwhile to give the kid a shot and see what he can do. Would love the prospect of having Blackmon on the team. Maybe trade Hartline or some of the other receivers for some picks.
