Not really. He'd cost a draft pick to acquire (we shouldn't be doing that) and there is nothig about him that screams improvement or franchise QB.


Well it seems like he won't be available afterall. Here's what new Eagles Head Coach Chip Kelly about Foles in 2011:


I’ll tell you what; I’m glad Nick Foles is graduating," Kelly said at the time. "I catch myself watching him in awe sometimes. ... Nick is a hell of a football player. That kid’s a warrior. He’s as good as anyone in the country." Kelly's Oregon Ducks faced Foles' Arizona Wildcats annually in the Pac 12. Kelly was also effusive in his praise of Foles at Thursday's press conference

Can the Jets land QB Matt Flynn next ?

Now that the New York Jets have hired a new general manager, the next big question is can former Seattle Seahawks executive John Idzik find a quarterback to compete with or supplant Mark Sanchez ?

There is a backup in Seattle that should now catch New York's attention: Matt Flynn. Idzik was part of a front office that liked Flynn enough to sign the quarterback to a three-year, $19.5 million contract. It turns out Seattle drafted a better quarterback in rookie standout Russell Wilson. That makes Flynn a tradable asset this offseason.The Jets will definitely be in the market for a quarterback. Sanchez had four years to prove he was the long-term solution and regressed. He is due $8.25 million in guaranteed salary next season. However, that doesn’t mean a starting job is secured.

Many have mentioned the idea of a straight-up trade involving Flynn and Sanchez, but I doubt that would happen. Pete Carroll was Sanchez's college coach at USC, but that doesn't mean Carroll and the Seahawks are willing to pay $8.25 million in 2013 for a struggling backup.The Seahawks are smarter than that. If Idzik and the Jets want Flynn bad enough, Seattle would be better served securing a quality draft pick (or two) in order to continue building its team.

Jets unlikely to add Michael Vick, may target Tarvaris Jackson

Posted Image

When Marty Mornhinweg was named the Jets’ offensive coordinator, speculation immediately began that Michael Vick could be the next quarterback to join the Jets’ circus. But that does not appear likely.Although Mornhinweg and Vick worked together for four years in Philadelphia, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Vick and Mornhinweg weren’t on great terms and wouldn’t want to work together again in 2013.And anyway, the Jets are already bound to pay Mark Sanchez like a starter whether they want to or not, and they don’t want to add another expensive option, which Vick is likely to be, assuming he gets cut by the Eagles and becomes an unrestricted free agent.

The New York Post reported that the Jets would be unlikely to make a move for Alex Smith of the 49ers or Matt Flynn of the Seahawks for the same reason: They’d be too expensive.Still, the Jets do want someone who can compete with Sanchez. So who might that be? Schefter says new Jets G.M. John Idzik has always been a believer in Tarvaris Jackson, who was the Seahawks’ starter in 2011 while Idzik was Seattle’s V.P. of football administration. The Post also reported that Jackson could be a possibility with the Jets, as could Matt Moore, Jason Campbell or David Garrard.

Jets fans probably aren’t going to be excited about any of those names. Actually, Jets fans should probably just go ahead and resign themselves now to the fact that they won’t be excited about any of their quarterback options in 2013.

Seahawks appear poised to move Flynn

If the right offer comes around, expect the Seahawks to be willing to part with backup QB Matt Flynn. Everything we’ve heard from around the league matches what GM John Schneider said on a radio show — that the team would have to field calls for Flynn if they came in.

Although the team has not spent a ton collectively on the QB position as a whole, with rookie starter Russell Wilson making only $660,000 in base salary, with Flynn’s $5.25 million base for 2013, that’s a lot to pay a backup.

Is there a team willing to trade something for Flynn ?

A handful of clubs offered him free-agent contracts a year ago, and there are some expected QB jobs to be open. With not every GM and head-coaching job filled, it’s difficult to compile a complete list of teams that might be interested.But sources indicate that there should be a tepid market for Flynn’s services. If the Seahawks don’t ask for much in return or can find a way to pay some of his salary, there could be a trade to be made.

The only issue :
Wilson and Flynn currently are the only QBs on the roster. The team had four in training camp a year ago and could bring back a familiar face or add new ones through the draft, free agency or trade. The Seahawks also could aim to match the skills of the backup more to those of Wilson.

Jets Ponder Another Running QB

The Jets appear to be the most interested suitor in Michigan quarterback-turned-wide receiver Denard Robinson.After a season in which the Jets failed to turn Tim Tebow into an asset, they are seriously considering plucking another jack-of-all-trades quarterback in this year's NFL draft.The team appears to be the most interested suitor in Michigan quarterback-turned-wide receiver Denard Robinson. Jets brass met here with Robinson on Monday night, his longest meeting with any team so far. He said Tuesday that he felt the interest was genuine, calling the meeting a "great deal."

Robinson is an intriguing prospect since he isn't expected to even attempt to play quarterback at the pro level, and for good reason. He is listed, generously, at 6 feet, and he broke Pat White's record for career rushing yards by a quarterback. In two of his four seasons at Michigan, he had more rushing attempts than he did passing attempts.And so at this week's Senior Bowl, Robinson—who isn't cleared for contact after a nerve injury in his right elbow sustained during the season—is trying to prove to the Jets and the rest of the league that he can do something else.Robinson returned punts Tuesday and said he is picking the brains of fellow Michigan receivers Roy Roundtree and Jeremy Gallon about playing wideout. When he leaves Mobile and resumes training, Robinson said he would focus on catching live-action punts with his Michigan teammates. He is expecting to play in Saturday's Senior Bowl, an annual showcase of top college players.

If Robinson can play receiver, his quickness could help the Jets, who ranked 30th in pass yards this season. Their biggest receiving threat, Jeremy Kerley, had a respectable 827 yards this season, but the Jets had little beyond that. Jeff Cumberland was their second-leading receiver with 359 yards; Chaz Schilens (289), Stephen Hill (252) and late-season addition Braylon Edwards (125) rounded out the mediocre group.It is unclear where, exactly, Robinson will be drafted since this week is more or less his debut as a full-time wide receiver. He would constitute a pick of luxury for the Jets, since they have major holes at offensive line and safety, one of which they likely will address in the first round. They spent a second-round pick on Hill in last year's draft.Robinson said he is trying to model himself after former Kentucky quarterback Randall Cobb, who has become a star with the Green Bay Packers as a receiver and returner, and former Indiana quarterback Antwaan Randle El, who was a standout all-purpose player last decade with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Clearly, Robinson shouldn't model himself after whatever it was that became of Tebow with the Jets last season.

Once envisioned as someone who could play a mix of quarterback, running back and punt protector, Tebow never found much of a role with the Jets, and his use in the "Wildcat" package failed to make much of an impact. Tebow finished the season with 39 passing yards and 102 rushing yards.The difference is that Tebow was married to the idea of playing quarterback, while Robinson, it seems, is open to doing anything."I'm just focused on receiver and trying to get better at that," he said. He noted that he enjoyed his role in Michigan's loss in this year's Outback Bowl, where he lined up at running back and rushed 23 times for 100 yards against a talented South Carolina defense."There's certainly no question about his quickness, and there's certainly no question about run-after-the-catch because he's a talented guy with the ball in his hands," said NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock.

"So the questions are [whether he] can run routes—and by the way, we can teach that—and most importantly, what are his hands like?" Mayock said. And right now it's way too early for me, after one practice when he competed against defensive backs, to say whether he's a natural catcher of the ball or not, and that's what we need to figure out."

Jets gauge weak QB class at Senior Bowl

Jets general manager John Idzik and senior personnel executive Terry Bradway fixed their stare at the quarterbacks at the North team’s Senior Bowl practice yesterday morning.The two watched North Carolina State quarterback Mike Glennon zip passes to receivers, practice his footwork and try to prove he is worth a draft pick in April. Quarterback is the biggest question mark on a Jets team featuring plenty of them. Four-year starter Mark Sanchez is expected to be back because of his contract, but he will have competition. The Jets could find that competition in the draft.

Posted Image

ARMED & READY: N.C. State’s Mike Glennon is one of the QBs at the Senior Bowl this week whom new Jets GM John Idzik and personnel exec Terry Bradway have their eyes on.

This year’s quarterback class is considered weak by the draft experts, and it is possible there is not one taken in the first round. The Jets could target a quarterback in the second or third round. Lately, that has been good enough. Russell Wilson (third round) of the Seahawks, Colin Kaepernick (second round) of the 49ers and Andy Dalton (second round) of the Bengals have shown you don’t need to be a top-10 pick to start at quarterback and find success. “That position is dictated a lot by supply and demand,” one NFL scout said. “But you look at those guys and you can see that you can find a quarterback outside the first round.”

Glennon has been impressive in the first two days of Senior Bowl practices. At 6-foot-6, he towers over the huddle. His size has drawn comparisons to Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, a comparison he is welcoming this week. “We’re both tall guys with similar throwing motions,” Glennon said. “I don’t know Joe personally, but from watching him on TV I think we kind of have similar mannerisms and personality. That’s just from watching him. … I wouldn’t mind being compared to him with him going to the Super Bowl. Obviously he’s done a lot, and I have a lot to prove.” Glennon sat for three years behind Wilson at N.C. State. He stepped in and played well over the past two years. ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. is high on Glennon and believes he could be the first quarterback taken in the draft.

Some of the top qb names are not here this week like Matt Barkley of USC & Geno Smith of W. Virginia.Arkansas’ Tyler Wilson is an intriguing possibility who is projected as a second-round pick. He said he had an interview scheduled with the Jets last night. Some people thought Wilson should have left Arkansas last year, but he stayed for his fifth season there. He believes that works in his favor.“I think it gave me confidence,” Wilson said. “Even though we weren’t winning and the numbers weren’t quite what they were the year before, when you’re a senior there’s a confidence about you that it’s your team. You know what to expect. I think that serves me well going forward.”

The Razorbacks had a disappointing year as they experienced coaching turnover and went 4-8. Wilson threw 21 touchdowns and 13 interceptions after throwing 24 touchdowns and just six interceptions the year before. He said NFL teams are curious about what happened. Wilson said the adversity he experienced last season only can help him.“You have to battle through some of that and learn,” Wilson said. “Especially at the next level it’s going to be tough the whole time.”

Flynn is scheduled to make $5.3 million in base salary in 2013 and count $7.25 million against the salary cap. That is going to be too much for the Jets to handle unless they can find someone to take Mark Sanchez off their hands, something highly unlikely. Even if the Jets somehow found a trade partner for Sanchez, his cap number is still going to be high. It would be $8.9 million plus the amount of money the Jets had to pay of his 2013 salary. No team is going to trade for Sanchez unless the Jets eat a significant portion of his $8.25 million salary.If the Jets cut Sanchez, the cap charge would be at least $12.4 million in 2013 with a post-June 1 designation.All of that means the Jets already have a large amount of money tied up in the quarterback position. There is also the cost of the trade. The Seahawks are most likely going to get a mid-round draft pick for Flynn. With so many holes to fill, can the Jets realistically trade away draft picks ?


First of all, it should be noted that Sanchez costs $12.85M if he's on the roster this year, so that's sunk money. It's done.

Second, John Idzik should have a rare, first hand perspective on whether or not it's worth it to trade for Matt Flynn. I have no problem with whatever call he chooses to make here.

There is an idea Carroll might trade Flynn for Sanchez because he coached Sanchez at USC. Forget it. Carroll said Monday that Seattle realizes it needs to find a backup with a similar skill set to Wilson so that if he gets injured it does not need to revamp its offense. Sanchez is not running any zone-read-option plays.“It’s a good point and we’ve talked a lot about that,” Carroll said. “It would be nice to have another guy who might be able to be a factor in that way. There’s some really good kids out there. We’ll see.”


Third, doesn't Tim Tebow fit that mold?

Its looking like Crapchez will stay, a cheap vet minimum guy will be brought in as a QB and a drafted Qb will be brought in as well. So you will have:

1) Cheap Vet QB
2) Rookie Drafted QB
3) Crapchez

Will be Battling for the QB spot. Now because of the $$$ involved, the Jets will not draft a QB in the first round. I see them with a Round 2-4 QB pick. Crapchez can fetch hotdogs and grab GQ covers while the real QBs battle it out.

If there was a QB worthy of being picked at #9, I really don't think they'd hesitate.

To me the best option is to spend on other players. Sanchez is what he is and his contract is what it is, if Marty is any good, maybe he can get more out of him. Remember Alex Smith sucked and Harbaugh wound up in the NFC championship game with him. And they still found Kapernick. I'd rather the Jets find some young QB in the draft, find other position players in the draft and free agency, and develop the new young QB. If Sanchez starts and sucks or Greg starts and sucks, oh well.

I really don't see a point in wasting more money on a QB like Flynn who is way overpriced for what he is, and/or a Matt Moore who might be cheaper, but how much cheaper for a guy who really isn't good enough to be an NFL Backup.

The reality is they need to find a QB in the draft who might become good enough to lead a team. This pipe dream of "waiting till next year to find a franchise QB' is what most teams, including the Jets, have dreamed about since the beginning of time.

Sanchez on the field for one more year would be impossible unless he has a very strong training camp. The fans will chase him out of the stadium. Last season we knew right of the bat that Sanchez sucked in the training camp, then in the pre-season and the rest as they say is history.

The JETS will need to have some options at QB not named Tebow to have some competition for the QB's job in training camp. Matt Moore is an option. Campbell or T. Jackson maybe too. Flynn has a decent sized contract like 3 yrs for 19.5 mill but if we can trade a bad contract (like Holmes) for him it may not be a bad option. Again no perfect solutions here but it's about upgrading a position and hopefully have enough time to prepare for the future.

The truth is, who cares what the fans think. If it is about the future, being forced to keep Sanchez and pay him or cut him and Pay him, while signing some guy like Moore or Jackson or Campbell does what ? It's a wasted spot. it's not an improvement. Do people watch football outside of Jets games? Jackson is not any better than Sanchez. Thinking so is just having way too much hate for Sanchez. Sanchez sucks, but thinking Jackson or Moore is an upgrade is just delusional.

It's one thing if the Jets draft some 3rd round QB, he winds up being the best QB in pre-season, and winds up starting next year. I am all for that. it's another to pay Sanchez no matter what, and pay him a hell of a lot of money at that, and then search for some guy who isn't any better than Sanchez.

The reality is, none of these options are better than Sanchez. And even worse, Moore already proved he couldn't win a starting Job, he couldn't even win the backup job. And he came into pre-season as the starter. Ryan T wasn't impressive in preseason. It was just that Moore sucked. As much as we all love to bash Sanchez, it's just as likely that Moore looks worse in pre-season than Sanchez. Suddenly you sign Moore who can't even beat out Sanchez in pre-season. Same realities with jackson, Campbell, and all those other names.

it's one thing to bring in guys like a McNabb or even a Vick who were starters, are starters, think they are starters and can win the starting job. It's another to bring in 3rd string QBs who can't even win starting jobs on bad teams. Fans can boo all they want and Sanchez deservers all those boos, but how does having Moore or Jackson or even Flynn improve the Jets next season? How does it improve them for the future?

best case scenario is the Jets draft some young kid in the 3rd round, he beats out everybody like Wilson did, and he's the QB of the future. Pipe Dream? Maybe. But I'd rather have that as a scenario than go 6-10 with any of these other QBs and then hope firing Rex and the new regime picks the right future QB. And hoping the new DC is half as good as Rex is when it comes to defense.

Woody ensured that he always cared about the JETS fans by instituting PSL's.

Moore is better than Sanchez. Just one man's opinion i guess. And that's why having a competition for the starting QB in training camp is a must. If Sanchez suddenly improves he should start by all means, other than that he should kept on the sidelines.

To me the best option is to spend on other players. Sanchez is what he is and his contract is what it is, if Marty is any good, maybe he can get more out of him. Remember Alex Smith sucked and Harbaugh wound up in the NFC championship game with him. And they still found Kapernick. I'd rather the Jets find some young QB in the draft, find other position players in the draft and free agency, and develop the new young QB. If Sanchez starts and sucks or Greg starts and sucks, oh well.

I really don't see a point in wasting more money on a QB like Flynn who is way overpriced for what he is, and/or a Matt Moore who might be cheaper, but how much cheaper for a guy who really isn't good enough to be an NFL Backup.

The reality is they need to find a QB in the draft who might become good enough to lead a team. This pipe dream of "waiting till next year to find a franchise QB' is what most teams, including the Jets, have dreamed about since the beginning of time.


I think the Jets will try everything possible to move Sanchez off the roster. I think they'll be willing to eat 80-90% of his contract if it means getting a late pick back and Sanchez removed from the team. The Jets do and should care what the fans think, and the fans are done with Mark Sanchez.

If their choice is to cut him or keep him, they'll probably keep him, though. In that case, you hope Mornhinwig can do something with him, but you can't bank on that. My personal opinion is that Sanchez might eventually be salvaged, but his confidence is shot right now, and the fans here will not give him a chance to get it back. I don't know what his teammates think of him, either, but they seemed to be energized when Sanchez was sat down. I just think getting something out of him here is a serious long shot.

And finding a QB who can start as a rookie in the second or third round is another long shot. But this is the problem the Jets face this year, the draft is QB weak and so is the FA market. I think in this situation, you need to take a multi-pronged approach. So you grab the inexpensive vet -be it Moore, Campbell, Wallace, some CFL or arena guy, whatever- and you have QB as a focus of your draft, hoping to take one in the second or third that can surprise. Thing is, you don't want to force that QB pick, either, because you have a bunch of other needs, too. Draft has to be BAP straight down the line. If you've got a QB close to the top of your board in any given round, take him, but don't pass up prospects you have as clearly better than that prospect for the QB. When you get to the fifth or sixth round, and still haven't taken a QB, then you just grab the best one left.

I am not an expert at sorting out trades and i do not know the contract situation of Matt Flynn.

But can we do a Matt Flynn for Santonio Holmes trade. Seahawks might want more weapons on offense for Wilson and we NEED a QB.


They have Lynch, Rice, Baldwin, Tate and Zach Miller. They like Turbin a lot too. Why would they add a malcontent wide receiver coming off an injury with a terrible contract to an already solid group?

Also, the Jets could have signed Matt Flynn last offseason. They didn't. There is a reason why. He's not an improvement over the current QBs.
