The struggles of Matt Flynn are well known and considering he’s had a difficult time winning the starting quarterback job in one of the most dreadful scenarios in the NFL, that’s saying something.
Fellow quarterback Terrelle Pryor hasn’t exactly done much with his opportunity either, though, he’s expected to draw the start over Flynn when the Raiders open the season against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 1.
However, if some in the Raiders organization get their way, it might be Matt McGloin under center in the near future as NFL.com’s Michael Silver is reporting that there are people in the Raiders organization that feel McGloin gives the Raiders a better chance at winning over both Flynn and Pryor.
During a Wednesday appearance on NFL Network’s “NFL Total Access,” NFL.com’s Michael Silver said there’s “a lot of skepticism” about Pryor being the starting quarterback in Oakland. According to Silver, Pryor has an ally in Raiders owner Mark Davis, who would like to see what the third-year pro can do.
Or is he? According to Silver, there are voices in the organization who believe McGloin gives the Raiders the best chance to win.
Considering McGloin is an undrafted rookie, the praise might be more of a lack of trust in Flynn or Prior rather than exuberance to start McGloin.
