Every time I read an article in the media about Matt Flynn they bring up that he was beat out in training camp last year by Russell Wilson. So what! Colin Kaepernik was beat out by Alex Smith. And there have been other Quarterbacks, who have gone on to success after losing out on the starting job in training camp.
Jim Plunkett lost out to Marc Wilson in 83. ( Plunkett came back in to start and won the SB).
Kurt Warner lost out in camp to Tony Banks, Steve Bono and Matt Lienart In his career.
He was even benched in favor of Lienart at one point.
Rich Gannon was beat in camp by Wade Wilson, Tommy Kramer, Sean Salisbury, Mark Rypien, Cary Conklin,Steve Bono and Elvis Grbac.
With any luck Flynn will use last year as motivation. But lets just wait and see what happens before we decide if losing out to Wilson really means anything.
