Despite currently being the No. 1 quarterback on the depth chart for the Seattle Seahawks, Matt Flynn has still failed to live up to the hype during the offseason. After one of the greatest statistical games in recent memory in Week 17 last year, Flynn was expected to be the next great franchise quarterback in this league.
The Seahawks signed him to a modest three-year, $19.5 million contact with initial hopes that Flynn would become Matt Hasselbeck 2.0. While Flynn hasn't necessarily struggled, he certainly hasn't separated himself from the other quarterbacks on the roster.
Rookie Russell Wilson continues to impress on a daily basis, and even Tarvaris Jackson still has a legitimate shot at winning the starting job this year. The fact that the last half of that previous sentence is true proves that Flynn is far from living up to his offseason hype.
While Flynn will likely enter the year as the starting quarterback for the Seahawks, he'll be walking on egg shells. The first sign of trouble will result in the team going young with Wilson and looking to trade or cut their losses with Flynn.
