Charlie Casserly Thinks Skins Should Not Target Matt Flynn
Former Redskins General Manager Charlie Casserly joined “The Sports Junkies” on 106.7 The Fan and talked about some offseason moves around the league ranging from open coaching vacancies and the top candidates for the jobs along with where coveted quarterback free agent Matt Flynn will land.
According to Casserly, Flynn is not a good fit for the Redskins system and thinks he will be an average quarterback if he’s not in a similar offensive system to the Packers.
“I think [Flynn] in this system he plays in is really good. So Cleveland, Seattle, if Joe Philbin ends up with a head job in Miami.” Casserly said. “I’m not sure if it’s exactly the same thing the Redskins want in their same system. I’m not sure if everything they’re doing right now is some of the things he’s good at,” he added.
He also said the knock on Flynn coming out of college was his arm strength and unlike the Packers system, where passes are based more on timing and reads, the Redskins rely on the deep ball.
Casserly couched himself a bit, however, saying that even though he’s watched every pass Flynn threw this year and last year, there is still not that much tape on him
