Matt Flynn was signed to a contract to battle Tarvaris Jackson for the starting position with the Seahawks this coming season. This should be very very interesting. It will be a battle in training camp for sure.
But again readers, why the hype over Matt Flynn? I don’t understand. Flynn did very well in TWO games. The last game was the last game of the year when he started for the Packers. They had already wrapped up their position in the NFL playoffs.
We here in Seattle are acting like we just signed Payton Manning or Dree Brees or a young Johhny Unitas! Give me a break!
Seattle fans just want to see T-Jack fail. They say they saw enough of him last year so they have named Matt Flynn the starter for next season already without a battle between Flynn and T-Jack in training camp and pre-season games. This is VERY unfair to Jackson. Jackson is taking a beating on sports radio and on letters to the edtior etc.
In reality, Jackson did not to do bad last season. Not to good, not to bad. Here in Seattle fans have said T-Jack is a back up QB who was a starter most of the season by Seahawks coaches.
Yes T-Jack did not do well the last few games of last season. He has his faults for sure. I will not deny that. But also he was running for his life a lot of the time when his o-line did not give him time in the pocket. Payton Manning or any other QB would not have have done well as QB with the Hawks last season.
Before Seahawks fans and sports radio hosts (on 710 ESPN and KJR) crown Flynn the almighty savior of the Hawks, let Flynn and T-Jack have a battle in training camp. All this Flynn talk here in Seattle is a flat out dis-service to Tarvaris Jackson in my opinion. Gordon Curvey
