With the Jets a surprising 5-4 and Matt Flynn now being released for the second time this season, it made me think of a line that my late grandmother (along with many of my teachers) have preached that "it all works out for the best."
Before the draft, I had been wishing and had even posted on this site, my hope that the Jets would trade Mark Sanchez and his albatross contract to the Seattle Seahawks for Matt Flynn. At the time, the deal made sense since they both had big cap numbers and neither were in their team's future as a starting QB.
Now that Flynn has been cut by Bills, after being cut by the Raiders, I am glad that the Jets did not trade for him in the offseason and I recognize that the Jets inability to make a deal with the Seahawks was "for the best."
Post comments on any other player that you coveted during the offseason that in retrospect you are glad that the Jets did not acquire.
