    Personally, I think, if we are truly going to a WCO, Devlin would thrive.

    1st off I am not saying Flynn is Brady, but like the Patriots, the Packers have no idea what they have on the bench, considering Flynn has yet to start at least 3 games in a season, and finally did you happen to see who is starting for the Packers, very doubtful Flynn will ever start for the Packers other then during injuries, cleanup time, or maybe a game at the end of the season if they have homefield through the playoffs.

    I have a question for you: Do you know for a fact that Flynn can or can never be a franchise QB? The Patriots had plenty of time to start Brady over Bledsoe, yet needed to have Bledsoe go down for the season, before they even gave him a shot. It's tough to know what kind of a QB the backup will be, and it's even tougher when the QB starting on your team is one of best today.

    So what you are telling us, if you were given a choice, you would take a young healthy Jeff George over a young healthy Pennington. Got it

    The deep pass video from the combine shows me he doesn't get enough air under the ball for the wr to make the play. That takes more arm strength. Maybe over the last year he's added strength, Brady made huge strides physically in his first few years. But there was something up with Devlin that had everyone pass on him in the draft.

    yeah, actually there were 2 things: he went during his last season from being a player several teams including the Pats were keeping their eye on to being undrafted largely due to uncharacteristically coming late to his own Pro Day and having a bad showing during the East West Shrine Game. Otherwise he'd likely have been a mid round pick.

    Keep in mind that going UDFA was in essence one round later than Matt Flynn, everyone's popsicle of the month.. surely there was something wrong with him too, right? Damaged goods then translates into damaged goods now, eh?

    Actually, some analogies can be drawn to Jeremy Lin, his going undrafted, the conference he excelled and came from, even the alleged smarts. Who's to say that Devln can't end up amounting to our own version of him where the solution turns out to be sitting at the end of the bench?

    Hopefully Manning/Flynn/RGIII/Tannehill with have something to say. If none of them than Moore will.
    "Fundamentals, technique, execution -- primary. Scheme -- secondary."

    "We will incorporate an aggressive, up-tempo, attacking style in all three phases of the game."


    "Our team will play with discipline, poise, and maximum effort."

    "I want us to be the best tackling team in the NFL, the best team in pursuit, I want to take the ball away from other teams, I want to rattle the opposing quarterback every opportunity we get."

    I can bet you that Chad Henne has a stronger arm than Matt Moore and Matt Flynn.
    That said, I would rather have Moore or Flynn.
    Decision making, pocket presence, and throwing the right type of ball in a given situation is more important for success than blowing up the receiver on a dump off with a canon shot.

    Devlin doesn't have elite physical tools.
    IMHO, he made the most of his talent in college. He is lucky to be a practice squad player.

    Being late to your pro day doesn't move you down in the draft. Have a flapping piece of roast for an arm does. The key is he didn't have the arm strength. Does he have it now? He's had a year to work out and get stronger. But last year we opted to have Losman backing up Moore, and that's not exactly a ringing endorsement.
