Which came first, the chicken or the egg? In NFL terms, which comes first: the trade or the expectations?
Newly acquired quarterback has been a back up his entire NFL career, but now it’s his turn to face the firing squad.
Win and your in, lose and get bruised, this is what Flynn will now take on as the starting signal caller for the Oakland Raiders.
"I want to be a part of something special," Flynn said, via Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times. "And that's a big possibility here, of building something special, building a winning environment and building a really great organization. That's part of the plan."
"I've been pretty fortunate," Flynn said. "When you're on good teams for that long, you just expect it."
‘In Flynn, the Raiders are getting a quarterback with an accurate arm, a firm grasp of NFL offenses and someone with low mileage on his body.
They're also getting a "smart, disciplined player that doesn't like to lose, doesn't accept losing," Flynn said.
Flynn has started only two games during his five NFL seasons.’
