As far as trading for Flynn... you needed to obtain a QB somehow, since there was only 1 on the roster, and you don't want to be locked into Geno Smith IMO.. the QB crop is infinitely superior next year.
You mean they chose not to carry CP at his current number just like the Broncos chose not to carry Doom at his current number. It's a choice. McKenzie could have bit the bullet, paid CP and insisted the offense be designed around CP and the best RB in the NFL IMHO, McFadden.
