You should want Flynn to be our starter this year


There is nothing wrong with wanting RW to be our QBOTF, in fact I do and would encourage you to. The problem is, starting RW this wouldn't be maximizing the teams assets.

The thought of starting RW this year is exciting and fun, but starting a rookie is always a crap shoot. Would we be stunting their development? Would we be sacrificing the season? We won't know unless we do it, but there are obvious concerns with starting a rookie.

Assuming the competition goes how most think it will, Flynn will win and give us the best chance of winning this season. Not only that, I contend if gives us the best chance of continuing to build the franchise.

Flynn starting would give RW a year of development on the sidelines and in the film room. That time is invaluable, especially with a cerebral guy like him. I don't know how long he should sit, but I think its safe to say that in the least it won't hurt him.

If Fynn proves that he is starter quality, he then becomes a valuable asset. After this season, his contract becomes very team friendly in the near term. We could hold onto him as a backup, or better yet trade him. As a true starter, with his contract, he would be a valuable asset. If we never start him, we can't prove that he is worth anything and would then most likely cut him loose eventually.

So yes, you should want Flynn to start, to help out RWs development and maximize our assets going forward.
