Part of me thinks Carrol and the GM are playing a charade by sticking with Flynn as the " guy whose job it is to lose". If they didn't dump a huge contract on him Russell would be starting preseason game 3. Although he played against 2nd team D, Russell made great decision after great decision while engineering 3 td drives. Don't be surprised if Russell finishes top 15 qb this year.. Not even joking.
People don't realize Russell finished with the highest single season qb rating in college football HISTORY.
