    Will be interesting to see if this quiets all the discussion on Flynn being traded.
    Somehow I doubt it since this board likes to speculate on anything and everything under the sun.
    I mean, we win the SB and there are fans who still aren't satisfied and still thinks there need to be good players replaced.

    Ted doesnt tip his hand. So anything he says I dont put a ton of weigh into.

    I think alot of fans feel like its just better to get something now than nothing at all later on.

    No, I mean that if we had won it all, would there be talking of trading him for xplayer(s)?

    Why would we trade him? He's making adequate money as a backup at only $400,000 a year. A salary of $1 mil a year or less is more than enough to keep him. If Rodgers has an injury, Flynn would give us a decent chance to win the game.

    Exactly.

    Funny thing is that most of us saw the potential in Rodgers when he had to replace Brent during THAT Dallas game.

    Why can't anyone see the same potential in Flynn?

    I would HATE if they traded him unless they got something unbelievable

    Yup.

    We can't make the same mistake the Falcons made.

    They have probably still been kicking themselves since '97.
