Unfortunately for Flynn, Russell Wilson flourished under center in the “Gateway to Alaska” and the youngster is the man Seattle will build its franchise around.
The 6-foot-2, 225 pound Flynn, whose 480 yards passing and six touchdowns versus the Detroit Lions in January 2012 remain Packers single game records, became a hot commodity after replacing an injured Aaron Rodgers for two contests in 2010.
Flynn, the winner of the BCS National Championship Offensive MVP award with LSU in 2008, completed 61.7% of his passes for nine scores, against five interceptions, and 1,083 yards in two games as a starter in TitleTown.
Based on a measly 120 minutes of action, Flynn insanely morphed into a general manager’s wet dream and his value skyrocketed.
Considering Jacksonville’s 2-14 record and primarily atrocious 53-man roster, it’s impossible to claim the 23-year-old Gabbert has been afforded a fair opportunity to succeed as a leader in “The Bold New City of the South.”
Rather than gambling on Russell Wilson’s water boy, Jacksonville’s suits need to groom the embattled Blaine Gabbert and attempt to improve elsewhere.by
