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.
