Raiders: Flynn demoted to No. 3 QB, Pryor will start


LINK

quote:

Oakland Raiders coach Dennis Allen's critical post-game comments about Matt Flynn's poor play was a bad omen for Flynn. On Wednesday, we learned how bad.

Matt McGloin, an undrafted rookie quarterback, was taking second-team snaps ahead of Flynn during the media's window to view practice on Wednesday, according to ESPN. Terrelle Pryor, who is returning from a concussion, was back with the starters. Allen confirmed to reporters that Pryor will start Sunday night against the San Diego Chargers.

Flynn's demotion is a strong statement by Allen. Oakland's front office gave up a draft pick and more than $6 million to acquire Flynn this offseason, and the coaching staff values him less than an undrafted rookie. Allen believes Flynn isn't even good enough to be a backup. General manager Reggie McKenzie also drafted Tyler Wilson in the fourth round. Wilson was released, and now resides on the practice squad.

"It is what it is. It didn't work out," Allen told reporters about Flynn's demotion.

It's fair to wonder if Flynn and McKenzie are on the same page when it comes to quarterback evaluation.

Why wouldn't they start their franchise QB that gives them a chance at the SB?

He got sacked 7 times and he was just standing there waiting for it on most of them.

This obviously has nothing to do with football and is only due to anti-LSU bias

I didnt see the game but i think the INT was a pick six and i believe he fumbled too. and had 7 sacks. Their O-line is so bad Flynn has no chance. Pryor really isnt a good QB but at least with that Oline he can possibly make a play when the protection breaks down, 2 out of every 3 plays.
