Flynn to sit out Seattle game _ tendonitis

Quarterback Matt Flynn will sit out the Raiders final preseason game with tendonitis in his throwing arm, with Terrelle Pryor starting Thursday night against the Seattle Seahawks, coach Dennis Allen said.

Flynn, who was 3-for-6 for 19 yards with two interceptions, also had tendonitis issues last season with Seattle, during which time Russell Wilson seized the starting position.

Allen said he still has not made up his mind regarding a Week 1 starter against the Indianapolis Colts, and that he wants to get Flynn’s arm up to speed before making a decision.

    Seattle robbed the raiders and Reggie is an idiot

  • RaiderRetribution

    To Parsons & Session, thank you for giving Raiders a 110%. You were on practice squads multiple years, Parsons you even played and started.

    You both will always be a Raider. Raider Nation thanks you.

    Somewhere in bizarro land, there is a Steeler message board where lunatics are calling for the Rooneys to sell the team shortly after they fire Mike Tomlin.

    Yo, Giordano led the Raiders in interceptions two years in a row, three key ints that led to our last 8-8 season, so don’t even go there.

    “Grading a Gm less than 2 years into his term is crazy. Comn on. Enough with this Reggie sh!t.”
    =============================
    My general policy is to give rookies, be they players or coaches or GM’s at least three years to get it together. I actually like RM and definitely want him to succeed, but 2014 is just too damn important. And if Flynn really has tendonitis- and no it didn’t just pop up suddenly- then trading for him is just about unforgivable. This tendinitis was present when Flynn was in Seattle. That’s why I keep thinking he is intentionally being fed false info. He couldn’t possibly be this oblivious.

    And I have to ask again, how in hell do the Flynns and Kolbs, and Linerts and Harrrells of the world hang around and get picked up and other types of QB’s, much much much more talented QB’s get thrown on the trash heap?

    Admitt it Kooky racist, you only want Pryor to start because he’s black. If Pryor was white and Flynn was black you’d say start Flynn. You know you would.

    You’re right

    Giordano >>>>> Flynn

    That much is clear. However, Flynn pulling a page right out of his book in coming up gimpy after getting absolutely exposed on the gridiron.

    Sign him, he’s better than Jenkins. Tomlin is a gawd dam retard. He’s a crackhead.

  • mcthompso

    I don’t see how Seattle necessarily robbed the Raiders. a future 5th, and a future conditional (which is probably going to be a 7th)? That’s nothing for a guy to come in and compete for a starting job. OK, so he will probably end up the backup–sweet. Still a future 5th rounder for your backup? I’ll take that too. The 49ers made the same trade for a guy that won’t even make their team this year, knowing he was a backup at best.

    Also, Reggie restructured Flynn to where he pays him all this year, so that if we get Bridgewater, or someone like that, next year: no dead money. Even if Flynn is as bad as many of you say, this is not a bad trade.

  • 0ak r8rs

    Speaking of Reggie. Wth ever happened to the whole Director of Football Operations or COO thing anyway? I mean, it would be nice for Reggie to just be able to concentrate on player personnel issues and have someone else pay the light bill and cut the grass, if you know what I mean?

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    Stoking the fire-

    Pryor starts: 1st play, run off tackle; 2nd play, draw, 3rd play, screen pass…

    Fair shot or playing it safe with your starting QB?

  • raideralex99

    When ever you play the race card for the QB … You know he’s crap.
    I never hear that crap when they talk about Peterson or Fitzgerald … Why?
    There is no race issues in the NFL … It’s all about winning or in some cases only about making money seriously in this day and age who would not want the best player on their team regardless of skin color … Morons!

    Can’t answer that last question but I can say Gm’s and coaches have the belief that they can try get something out of players that other teams couldnt. This happens everywhere around the league.

    I really dont know what info Reggie was given. Im guessing he didnt think the tendintis was that serious. He still drafted Wilson and picked up McGloin. Flynn wasn’t going to be the franchise Qb by any means. So in my eyes its not a big deal.

    By “highest,” do you mean the most number of morons under the influence of high-producing substances. Or, do you mean the quality of the morons assembled (the most moronic bloggers)? Or, do you mean simply the greatest number of morons ever assembled in this blog? Or, do you mean the level of the morons is the highest because Kell’s presence is weighing it heavily in that direction? Please clarify?
