So any poster who dogged Ireland for not landing Flynn two yrs ago going to admit that he knew exactly what he was doing? Plus anyone seen a "We were wrong" by any of the media folks?

Quote:
Matt Flynn’s short tenure in Oakland has come to an end.

Flynn, the quarterback acquired by the Raiders in a trade with the Seahawks this offseason, has been released, according to Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated.

Although the Raiders traded for Flynn with the expectation that he would be their starter this season, he was beaten out in training camp and the preseason by Terrelle Pryor. When Pryor missed a game this season with a concussion, Flynn played so badly that he was demoted from second to third on the depth chart after Pryor returned. And now Flynn isn’t on the Raiders’ depth chart at all.

For the Raiders, who traded away a fifth-round pick for Flynn, this is an embarrassment that is compounded by the embarrassment of spending a fourth-round draft pick on quarterback Tyler Wilson and then cutting him before the start of the regular season. The good news, however, is that Pryor looks like a keeper at quarterback.

Now the question is where Flynn will end up. After failing to earn a starting job in Seattle or Oakland, there may not be another place where he could compete for a starting job. What might make sense is a return to Green Bay, where Flynn did good work as Aaron Rodgers‘ backup.

I'm shocked people aren't already yelling to sign him.

My instant Madden mentality said trade Matt Moore to a competitive but QB deficient team for a serviceable RT and sign Flynn.

Reality says...go back to Madden Land.
