Re: Flynn traded? Where does that leave Mallett?

In response to Muzwell's comment:
What does Flynn have to do with Mallett? Someone will trade for him or they won't, I don't see the connection? There are still a bunch of teams that need a QB. What they get for Flynn will be interesting, although he has a much bigger contract than Mallett, so it's not apples to apples.
I don't know too many people saying he's worth a top 10 pick. The early conjecture was Mallett and the 29th to CLE for their 6th pick, which is not the same as a top 10 pick. The 29th pick has a lot of value.
I never heard any talk of a long delivery with Mallett, nor have I seen anything like that when I have seen him play. I don't think there's any doubt about his arm, it's probably as strong as there is in the game. There's doubt about other things, decision making, accuracy at times, etc.
And Hoyer appeared in two games for AZ, one start. 30 of 53, 1 TD, 2 INT, 330 yards. Start was vs. SF, 19 of 34, 225/1/1.
what does Flynn have to do with Mallett? Are you serious? Firstly, there are only a handful of teams looking for a QB. If one of them does trade for Flynn, that takes away one team that may have traded for Mallett. Second, correct me if I am wrong, Didn't Flynn establish his worth from 1 game with GB where he threw for 5 or 6 TD's? What would Mallett's worth be if he had a body of work other teams could draw upon?
I also think teams have serious doubts if Mallett can make all he throws, not meaning the deep, strong arm types, but the throws where touch is needed, the back shoulder throw, the end zone corner lob etc, etc. Having a strong arm is not the final decision on a QB.
