Who cares about Flutie's days in SD, folks? At 38-39, it was obvious to the world he was going there to stand in till the next guy could be brought in.

I refer to his Bills days, where he was a decent QB in the NFL. Won his share of games, and lost his share of games. At 34/35/36, one of the more exciting guys handling the ball in Buffalo. But, again, two things there conspired against him:Wade Phillips coached like a bum, especially toward the end of his tenure there, and the team around him was aging beyond effectiveness or too inexperienced to be counted upon. Remember, he came off the bench to get the Bills going beyond the wild card game... until the Music City Miracle played its role.
