He's right back in his comfort zone - where he has no direct impact on the game, and gets to take credit for anything that happens to go right. Just like at Wisconsin. Just like in Philly.

My guess is the Browns are going to fight it out with the Phins and Seachickens (both have ties to the PUKERS either at Coaching or GM) for the rights to Flynn.
You then have to look at the teams and see which ones have the best group to support Flynn and the most free in FA.
Phins 16 Mil
Browns 25 Mil
Seachickens 35 mil
In the end, the Browns get Flynn, Seahawks draft Tannehill and Miami tries to beat out the Jets for Peyton.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

I think you really have to take a close look at what that team has done since Holmgren took over. Every decision has been based, at least offensively, on the WCO.
Nice OL, Mass, Little, Cribs at WR. Hardesty/Hillis at RB. Can't help but think that Flynn would really top that crew off, especially if they used the number 4 for Blackmon.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

I see what you mean about the Browns set up but there are two factors that still work against that. Despite the two games Flynn has had he is still an unknown quantity in terms of what he can do. We know the Pukers are going to talk him up if they are going to get something good back but he could be another Kolb. Steps in and looks good, has the league falling over themselves to get him and then doesn't set the place on fire.
Now RGIII is the next best thing since sliced bread and, if you believe the hype, already has a plinth set aside in Canton for him. So that puts a lot of pressure on Cleveland to look at moving up, after all its only a couple of picks in the draft order? lol
They have messed up so much in the past that even they will question if they can't push themselves that little bit more to get the next league MVP, if they don't and he does set things on fire then they will be kicking themselves. So to me the fact that he's not currently a WCO QB isn't a huge factor - in fact Chilly was seen last weekend down at The Home Depot buying a set of chisels and some glasspaperTime spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

From a football standpoint, RGIII is alot more risk than Flynn my friend. At least we've seen Flynn play at the next level.
RGIII hasn't done anything.
Again, a team that has been methodically built to run the WCO would just throw it all away to draft a kid that doesn't fit that plan.
Now if your talking the Deadskins, the opposite could be said. That scheme can be modified to fit RGIII very easily IMHO. The question is, do they have enough juice to move up there to get him.
If you look at what teams have done in the last 25 years, package (Mix of the years 1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 5, 6, and a 7 and a 1rst next year) would seem to be in order.
Reference: trade-ups for top-5 pick QBs in the last 25 years
2009: NYJ - Mark Sanchez. Jets trade pick #17 and #52 (1,430 draft points), plus Abram Elam, Kenyon Coleman, and Brett Ratliff to Cleveland for the #5 pick (1,700 draft points).
2004: NYG - Eli Manning. Giants trade Philip Rivers (selected with pick #4), plus three picks detailed above (1,100 draft points) to San Diego for Manning, drafted #1 (3,000 draft points).
1998: SD - Ryan Leaf. Chargers trade pick #3 and #33 in the '98 draft and their first rounder in 1999 (roughly 3,900 draft points) plus Pro Bowl KR Eric Metcalf and LB Patrick Sapp to Arizona to move up one spot (2600 draft points) to draft Leaf. It was one of the highest-risk (and worst) trades in NFL history.
1995: CAR - Kerry Collins. Panthers break the mold and trade down from the #1 pick to get their quarterback. The Bengals gave up the #5 and #36 picks (2240 draft points) to get the #1 pick (3,000) - a bargain. Too bad they spent it on Ki-Jana Carter.
1990: IND - Jeff George. The Colts moved up without sacrificing their own first-rounder from that year, but gave up Pro Bowl WR Andre Rison, Chris Hinton, plus a package of picks (roughly 1,200 draft points) to the Falcons for the #1 pick and Atlanta's fourth-round pick (3,175 draft points).
