Raiders quarterback Matt Flynn told Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times that he wasn’t the type of quarterback that Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll was looking for in his quarterback last season.
“I had to find a medium ground last year because I knew that Pete was high energy, all over the place in practice, and I knew he probably wanted that out of his quarterbacks a little bit,” Flynn said. “But I still didn’t want to be someone I wasn’t.
“I think Russell and I had two different personalities. But I don’t think any of that played a part in the decision. The bottom line was, Russell took a hold of his opportunity and made the most of it.”
Sounds like Flynn is trying to make an excuse for why things didn’t work out in Seattle. The fact of the matter is that he probably isn’t a starting caliber NFL quarterback.
