Raiders about to trade for Matt Flynn
 
According to Ian Rappaport on NFL Network.

Amazing. 2 of the top 3 teams in the draft trade for a QB and apparently the Jags are strongly considering not taking a QB either.

Never seen this in the draft before. This QB class is terrible.

Really when you have Flynn and Alex Smith as two of the three QB's you face in your division do you really need a pass rush? Then you think remember the other QB you face has like one returning starter on the OL. LOL

Typical Al Davis move.

SouthStndJunkie 03-29-2013 01:37 PM

Wow, the Raiders got a lot of return on investment from Carlson Palmer.

OBF1 03-29-2013 01:40 PM

And it only cost them their draft future for Palmer. I wish Al would have lived to be 100

A 1st and a 2nd for averageish play for a year and a half....

Jesus that I think this has to be the worst trade in NFL history

Now they are gonna trade for another team's backup

I dont see how Oakland is not the worst team in the league this year
There is nothing good about that team

Alex is no Payton manning nor is he a tom Brady,but he is far better than cassel or any QB they've had since Trent green. Say what you want about Alex Smith but he is quite an improvement over cassel.
As far as Flynn is concerned,the jury is still out but from what little I've seen,he's improvement over Carson.
The raiders & chiefs have upgraded their QB position,Andy Reid is no slouch when it comes to developing/working with QBs.

They gave up a first and second for Flynn!? NO WAY!?

Next years QB draft class is gonna be filled with elite, big time NFL calibur talent.
Logan Thomas, QB, Virginia Tech- Dude is 6'6 260 and has a cannon. An even bigger Cam Newton clone.
Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia- Just plain ol good. Kind of a bigger Drew Brees.
Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville - Kid is gonna be a superstar. Just oooozes with big time, NFL talent. This kid could make an even bigger impact as a rookie than both RG3 and Tyler Wilson.
Tyler Bray- Another 6'6, big armed passer.

And Chokeland trades away even more of what they already are in short supply of for a back-up.

Requiem 03-29-2013 02:05 PM

Tyler Bray declared this year, socalorado!

That's Al in his prime. :~ohyah!:

OBF1 03-29-2013 02:08 PM

I think the 1st and 2nd were for Palmer

It all depends on how they do next year.

Matt Barkley was a for sure top 10 pick in last years draft and Geno Smith was the best player in college football until late October.

Lot of things change in a year.

I am just sayin that most analysts and fans will agree that next years QB class is looking like its filled with some serious talent and instead of drafting and developing players, Chokeland once again does its annual "go trade away picks for some random QB" move just before the season starts.

A 1st and a 2nd is what they gave up for Carlson Palmer.

If they do the same for Matt Flynn then they need to be kicked out of the NFL for stupidity.

Reggie McKenzie won't give up more than a 3rd round pick for Matt Flynn.

I think you are dead wrong...Alex Smith was a first rounder who struggled to stay on the field and off the bench until coming to SF which has a stout defense and consistent run game.

Cassell had one good year in NE................

They both will end up the same with mediocre talent in KC...........

AJ Mccarron from Bama, he has won 2 BCS championships already and I will be damned if I don't like his odds of making it a hattrick. There is going to be a fair amount of people in the league who will get some really awkward feelings about him.

This thread is full of fail. Alex Smith was drafted by the 49'ers.

Anything raider oriented will attract fail.

I was gonna say.....

In fairness to Alex Smith, he had like 3 HC's and 5 OC's (not sure of the numbers, but the 49ers had no continuity or stability for him)

However his two seasons under Harbaugh saw him lead the 49ers to NFCCG and he also played quite well before being replaced by Kaepernick.

He will never be a Peyton Manning, but on the right team he can become a Phil Simms
