    Here we go!

    I'm thinking 2nd and 3rd round draft picks.

    Unless it's a 1 or a 2 I say keep him. He's a nice insurance policy to have around. Rodgers isn't made of steel like the last guy, this probably won't be the last game he misses.

    When is his contract up? Gotta trade him before then. For what? Too early to tell.

    Flynn showed he can play at the pro level tonite. Allbeit against a beat up D and a dumbed down offensive gameplan.

    I would take a high 3rd to low 2nd minimum for him. He is still under contract through 2011.

    At this point, no one will trade a low first for him, unless it is in a crap shoot draft. He showed a lot of heart tonight.

    Flynn's game last night will be reviewed by every NFL team in the league looking for a QB. A rookie QB making his first start against the oh-so-mighty New England Patriots, looking cool as a cucumber for all but the final minute of the game; almost 300 yards passing, 3 TD's... you better believe there are teams salivating all over themselves wishing they had him.

    But I agree, unless it's a 1st round, keep him.. it's much easier to sleep at night knowing we have a back up QB that can take over at a moment's notice.

    Pats got a high 2nd for Cassell and were rumored to have been offered a 1st. Cassell did well for almost an entire season, so the value of Flynn would be a bit less. I would say a mid 2nd, but this should be a relatively poor draft, which could push the pick higher. Then again, there are a lot of good QBs in this draft, so the pick could be later.

    Flynn played with a lot of poise. That is the biggest thing for a QB to be successful - and you never know for sure when you draft them, if that will translate to the NFL. That has some value.

    1 year left on his contract and its foolish for us to pay him after that the money he would want. Trade him during the draft. A 2nd or higher would make me happy. A 3 and a 5 would be fine too.

    Maybe we could get that QB from Kilm MS to back Rodgers up... ;)

    I have to agree with the idea of an insurance policy, Three concussions in one calender year raises red flags.

    Im willing to take the risk if I am TT. If Arod went down early the season would be over reguardless. Who knows if Flynn plays again and throws up a couple duds then what happens? Little trade value. Buy low sell high.

    I'd say a 3rd Rounder other than that, there has been less seen of him than say Kerry Kolb.

    IMO the following teams need a QB

    Dolphins
    Raiders
    Titans
    49ers
    Seahawks
    Vikings
    Cards
    Bengals
    Panthers
    Broncos

    about 3 of those can draft a QB with the idea of starting him. McNabb and Palmer should be available so that takes another 2 off the board.

    But what does a team like the titans do? Collins is almost as old as favre so I think at that point you need to look at the future. They are not bad enough to get a top pick, so they would be a good team to trade with. Another team is the 49ers, they are not bad enough to get that top 5 pick most likely.

    I think you could even bring up teams like washington or the Jets.

    So are you saying the questions is - Which QB should we trade?


    I think we can get 2 #1s and a good OT. for AR.



    :wink:

    I say why even bother trading him? We need a solid backup in case Rodgers ever goes down again for some reason. Why build a qb for someone else to use? He had one game, and yes it was a solid one, but we shouldn't be singing Flynn praises based upon one games performance.

    We will have to pay him starter pay if we resign him. Otherwise let him walk? No thanks. That makes no sense. Should we of held onto hasselbeck too?

    Why pay a backup starter pay? I don't think he's the type of primodonna that would want huge money. Not every nfl backup that starts one game demands starter pay his next contract renegotiation.

    If you dont think the packers will get trade offers your kidding yourself. He knows that and so does his agent. We resign him and its going to cost us.

    No one in the NFL wants to be a back up. Thats a fact.

    TRADE HIM FOR WHATEVER WE CAN GET. I'm sorry but hes not very good, he's ok, but hes not a great pocket passer. And we have A-ROD, if we can get a 3rd, I say trade him, even a 4th I would do it. We need depth all over the roster, TT can go get another solid college Qb and MM will coach him up to be an adequate back-up. however we still need starters on OL, DL,LB, DB,RB, etc etc the list goes on.
