Re: Saints sign QB Matt Flynn

There was a time when he was on-fire at Green Bay and the most sought after NFL QB free-agent. He never worked out at other teams. Maybe he'll find a home here. It's exciting to have him back, but I seriously hope we have no need for him!!

You are right. He filled in nicely for Rodgers and didnt miss a beat really. Maybe he just needs the right offense.

That sucks for McCown. Prayers for him! Guess that means this was his last day as a Saint. Thanks for the contribution, Luke.
New Orleans Saints quarterback Luke McCown likely needs season-ending back surgery, source says | NOLA.com

Guess that means Grayson is no where near ready.. or will we carry three QBs on the active roster?

Re: Saints sign QB Matt Flynn

It's about time they signed him. I've been waiting for years for the Saints to bring him in as the backup. He may not be the starter that a lot of people once thought he could be, but as a backup he's about as good as you can get.

People are always making fun of him every time another team signs him, and I never get why. He's a backup. There's a reason teams have those. It's understood they aren't starters but you gotta have somebody in case of injury. Flynn is a guy who, unlike most backups, gives you a competitive chance.

We saw how bad the drop off was for the Cardinals when they lost Carson Palmer... Carson freaking Palmer, of all people. As average as he is, the difference between he and his backups wasn't just night and day, it was more like the sun and the north pole.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Eh, this just shows our rookie is not even close to ready to be a backup for goodness sake. I like Flynn but would rather see our newbee there.
