When you put Oakland Raiders and break out together you know the first thing that comes to mind is one of their players escaping from jail. And when you think about the Oakland Raiders and jail you know this man comes to mind.
But this man is not breaking out for the Oakland Raiders in 2013. Partially because he is a Brown now, which brings me to my next point – if you live in Cleveland you should probably lock your doors at night or risk waking up to find the man pictured standing in your home.
But let’s not get off track here.
The player most likely to break out for the 2013 Oakland Raiders is none other than:
Flynn would probably have been my 2012 breakout player for the Seahawks, but don’t let that deter you from reading the rest of this article. I mean, who really saw Russell Wilson coming? The Jaguars sure didn’t. I’m looking at you Bryan Anger.
Flynn was an absolute beast when he started in Green Bay, which albeit was only twice. In his first start he went for 251 yards and three touchdowns. His second was even better at 480 yards and 6 touchdowns. So, in two starts Flynn threw for 731 yards and 9 touchdowns.
Flynn has gotten a little bit of a bad reputation because of his lack of experience (Ron Jaworski ranked him lower than Mark Sanchez, Christian Ponder, and Chad Henne (who isn't really a starter), but let’s be real he wasn’t taking over for Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay and it took wunderkind Russell Wilson to stop him from getting his chance to start last year in Seattle.
It won’t be easy this season with Terrelle Pryor making some noise and a receiving corps that’s more no-name than Miami’s defense in ‘72. But this year I think Flynn rises to the occasion and finally shows the world what he has to offer. If his starts in Green Bay are any indication I think Flynn has a chance to be something really special for Oakland in 2013.
