Matt Flynn deserves a chance. Statistics are merely one of several indications of ability. Terry Bradshaw (out of Louisiana Tech) had only a 51.9% completion rate during his 13 years in the NFL. But he was the first quarterback to win four Superbowls as a Pittsburgh Steeler. He was a winner. He got the job done in the big games whether by running or passing; he was a leader. A tough competitor, Bradshaw excelled in big games. During his career, he passed for more than 300 yards only seven times, but three of those performances came in post-season play, two of them in the Super Bowl. In all of its history, Pittsburgh was never a champion without Bradshaw and now Roethlisberger. One can assert JR is the best man in every game, but the facts just do not support it. JR has not won the big game. In 2005: he scraped out a last-minute victory at the poor Arizona; he lost AT HOME to a mediocre Tennessee; he barely won AT HOME to a mediocre Florida; he barely won AT HOME in OT to an excellent Auburn that missed at least 5 field goals, several of which were chip shots; he barely won to a mediocre Alabama in OT; he scraped out a last minute victory AT HOME to an awful Arkansas; he was humiliated in Georgia 34-14. Several other games with bad opponents were not put away until the second half. Even in 2004, during the 2005 Capital One Bowl, he not only lost but also failed to put away an ineffective Iowa offense. In the 2006 Auburn game, he bobbled the snap three times and fumbled it once (which LSU recovered), he ran in the 4th quarter on third and twelve, he failed to spike the ball in the last minute, etc. Matt Flynn and LSU’s defense demolished the so-called Miami powerhouse in the first quarter of the Peach Bowl to uphold the SEC’s honor considering the inexplicable losses by Georgia and Auburn. Matt Flynn threw 7 touchdowns in 2005 while JR threw only 15. The excellent Coach Miles, as so many coaches have done, might have become devoted to JR. Coaches are stubborn; that could be why Flynn, and not other factors (visible to outsiders), have kept Flynn from starting. Although it should be unnecessary, I must say I want JR to do well not just because I like him but because it will help LSU.
