    He wasnt, but what does it matter? Wasnt Kurt Warner was benched in favor of Matt Lienhart?? So being out a year isnt that big of a deal is it?

    Well, in all fairness, Josh McClown was never Kurt Warner. The Giants just pushed Warner out the way so they could get to their 2004 draft pick Eli Manning..... who was actually drafted by San Diego but was forced to the Giants, for Philip Rivers, who caused the Chargers to dispose of Drew Brees, who was scooped up by New Orleans, after Miami passed on Brees, in favor of the more athletic prototype sized Daunte Culpepper.

    Which proves that GMs and teams do, in fact, make mistakes that often times the fans called ahead of time.
    Why deny that?
    I mean nobody here should expect the GM to be perfect, as we don't expect anyone to be perfect.
    Only Eagles fans expect perfection and boo otherwise.

    Easy to defend buddy.
    No draft and develop system is without it's flaws. If picking players were like picking flowers every team in the NFL would know the marching order of talent. It's a crap shoot there champ.
    I'd just like to know who you think they should have grabbed or nabbed and at what point?
    Look Rodell..... the best answer to your question is this: Did they address it and is it solved to your satisfaction? Yea, I thought so, now your only point is to say they should have done what you thought but only earlier.
    Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in awhile Rodell. I don't think anybody was truly against Flynn coming back. You only need to go search old posts to find out what most fans here thought of him back in the day. We loved him and still do.
    Follow the timeline and the information you seek should reveal your answer. It just didn't work out before. They had backups, they can't just go throwing them out the door willy-nilly and expect the locker room to respect them. Flynn came at an opportune time and a good price and it's all good. Why the heck can't you acknowledge that they did their jobs?
