If the regime likes Flacco so much

He’s the 3rd string qb, a veteran willing to teach, a super bowl winner, and dirt cheap…

Flacco is the 2nd stringer and the darling of our HC.

He was on the Eagles because the jets did not offer him a contract then we had to trade to get him.

A big fail by Douglas.

I think it went down like this, douglas wanted him back, saleh and his guys said don't need a vet then once we had the injury the jets panicked.

Flacco is awful and should not be on this team at all. 

wrong. @T0mShane got it right.

He wanted a chance to start and thought he could beat out Hurts. Philly then went and traded for Gardner Minshew, who immediately won the #2 job. Douglas and his old boss Howie Roseman had had conversations about a Flacco trade, and when the Patriots finally put Zach out of his misery for a few weeks, Douglas threw Philly a pick

cant force a guy to sign with you.

It was absolutely a catastrophic mistake to not have a veteran QB on the roster to mentor Zach Wilson. Say what you want about him, but he was still a 23 year old kid from the suburbs of Utah. Everyone pounded on the Jets for going through the summer without a safety net guy. Hughes reported recently that Douglas tried to get a veteran (Hoyer, iirc) to sign here in that role, but nobody wanted to do it.

There has not been one shred of evidence that he is teaching anyone anything.

Zach called him dad in a tweet when he re-signed, they must have somewhat of a relationship. But sure, I haven’t physically seen him mentor zach…

Catastrophic is a strong word. Would it have been nice to have some type of proven veteran to lean on? Sure. 

In the end it really means nothing. 

Well, yeah, Zach was going to struggle no matter who was backing him up, but it was probably not the best idea to give him no one to talk to other than LaFleur. They had to go out and pay a premium in-season to bring John Beck in to be his binkie.

Lol I’m well aware of what happened. Just of curiosity who would you have wanted over Flacco? 

I agree trading for Flacco was silly, they should have just resigned him last offseason. Flacco imo was better than any of the FA’s available and the cost to get him back wasn’t that high. It was only what a 6th round pick, right? 

He brought the Vet presence JD wanted and also, was a proven super bowl winning QB when he was in his prime. So, for Zach that’s an ideal situation, getting to pick the brain of a former super bowl mvp.
