    No, they won't. I'm still hearing how the Niners are the most amazing story of the year and the Saints are the best organization in the league.

    The Packers have a long history of letting backup QBs go to become starters on other teams. They should let Flynn have his shot at starting on another team. Since he's already a free agent, there isn't much else they can do. (Unless Flynn shows an incredible amount of loyalty like the practice squad guy did.)

    Some of me hopes for this, but he is a good player and deserves to make more money than sitting on our bench...

    Indeed he does. He's paid his dues for 4 years on the Packer bench. He should get a shot at being a star.

    Flynn is worth too much to let him go for nothing.

    Flynn to Denver for Brian Orakpo.
    Or Flynn and our #32 pick for Miami's 1st rounder.

    Exactly, I think he would understand if we traded him to improve our team. It's a win win for both teams.. I'm sure once he's gone he hopes well for the Packers too.

    I'm curious and hopefully you guys can enlighten me; in a tag & trade situation (a la Matt Cassell), once the tagged player is traded, can the team then designate another player as their franchise guy? This is in regards to tagging and trading Flynn, then reapplying the tag to Finley. Though in the meantime, Finley would most likely have already signed someplace else.

    I believe he was showcased today to let other teams see what he has to offer. Some team is going to offer him big $$$$ that the Pack can not match. Good for Flynn. He is a class act and a soon to be great QB!

    I dont believe you can "reuse" the franchise tag. Wish I wasnt that way.

    Lets be honest folks, this is a great problem to have.

    Matt Flynn is the 4th QB in NFL history to pass for 450+ yards and 6 TDs. The other 3 are Joe Montana YA Tittle and Joe Namath. All 3 HOFers.

    No. Teams only have one franchise tag to use during the year. Tag hime and pay him what is probably $14-15 million for QB's. If no one is willing to trade for him, the Packers are stuck.

    I'm afraid the Vikings might go for him. That would make me break down and cry like a baby.....

    Methinks someone needs to get their facts straight.

    Yes and no....They have to settle this by the draft...I think they have to know by then in order to get a q/b in the draft to replace Flynn

    The Packer quarterbacks have that lumberjack thing going; cold weather, beards and plaid shirts.

    I agree with your point. Still, today's performance will help the media better understand how the Packers' highly successful organization works.

    There are threads on the Jets, Chiefs, Seahawks, Browns, and Dolphins boards about Flynn. This was a real coming out party for the bearded one.

    Everyone is forgetting that he is a free agent this offseason. If he doesnt get tagged then he will sign with someone else and we will get squat.

    True, guess they could always get another project to work on. Since Green Bay has always had good success doing so.

    Not at all, people are trying to figure out what can happen if he is tagged then traded

    I personally think the Packers franchise Flynn and flip him for something close to a Matt Schaub/Matt Casell deal. Flynn should get the Packers a second round pick at the least. Teams like Washington, Cleveland and Kansas City could all use him.

    If the Raiders go ahead and enlist the services of Reggie McKenzie and Eliot Wolf I can see them making a big push for Matt Flynn.
