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.

    Lechler puts it at the 2-yard line lol

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Not re-signing Lechler was a dumazz move by McKenzie.

    (a) All he wanted was $1.8 million a year.
    (b) He said he was fine with coming back.
    (c) He’s Sebass’s security blanket.

    @@@@@@

    He’s old. He wanted to be back in Texas. And you have no idea how much he wanted.

    I will miss him holding.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    We don’t know how much he wanted?
    Sure we do.
    He settled for $1.8 million a year.
    And he stated clearly to Cork that he was fine with coming back.

    Also, being old doesn’t necessarily have much to do with competence.
    There is proof of that on this blog.

    I definitely agree about the holding and as I already indicated that was a fair reason to keep him.

    @@@@@

    And if he stated to Cork the sky was green, would you believe that too? Wow. What’s he suppose to say? “Oakland sucks, I wanna go back to my home in Texas”.

    That’s all you got? Ok.

  • RaiderRetribution

    2 pennies, if we had 4 LBs to start, Maiava and Burris injuries holdingunit back from 3-4, unless Robinson or Bass can OLB.

  • Raider Fan in Fremont

    Give Pryor the ball and he will get better over the course of a season.

  • Dakota

    How much will starting Pryor in game 4 of the preseason really show us? Don’t teams usually just go a series or two with the firsts and then it is scrub time?

    my point is they never said it was a “true” competition.

    They saw Pryor vs Chargers, went out and got someone they felt was better, and named Flynn the starter.

    That’s not what happened in Philly or NY, so why should it have played out the same? Pyror worked his way into some #1 reps. That’s ok.
    —————–

    EXACTLY…Then shut up Alex. You contradict yourself with everything you say about Pryor. Yes it was not a legit QB competition. They gave Flynn every chance to succeed and he did not produce, while Pryor was show “2nd” hand treatment. Even with that 2nd had treatment Pryor has managed to ascend.

  • RaiderRetribution

    Could have first dispute between Reggie and Dennis, Reggie wants King for his future job w/Raiders, Dennis wants Kluwe to keep his current job as HC.

  • Raider Fan in Fremont

    If Flynn has a sore arm now, good chance it will trouble him all season long.

  • RaiderRetribution

    Flynn was never named the starter, only the front runner, but then again so was Hilary.

DA always said Flynn was the starter. Why can’t you idjits get that threw you’re thick idjit sculls.Now, go sit in the corner in the back of the class and wear that dunce hat proudly.

  • J Hill

    LOL at the arm tendinitis propaganda.

    Briesel and now Flynn???

    2 big offseason acquisitions are both still suffering from injuries that happened BEFORE they signed with us?

    FA report card not looking too good for the GM.

  • Raiderbuck
  • alex7

    whoa, RaidO

    internet bullying. cool guy!

    Flynn had every reason to be named a starter ahead of Pryor. Better short NFL history, better mini-camp…

    why are you guys so bitter it wasn’t an open competition with #1 reps split? Whiny.

    Hill

    you do realize almost every single NFL player has some type of injury in their histories.

    You know this, right?

  • RaiderRetribution

    So far eleven cuts we are aware of, I expect 9 more for twenty total to bring us to 70, we will sign three other FAs/waiver claims to 73 for Thursday nights game.

  • Raiders for life

    I’m thinking Pryor #1 McGloin #2 Flynn #3. Can’t have tendinitis in your throwing arm 2 years in a row. Flynn is a career back up.

  • J Hill

    Missed JFB’s take on is boy Cribbs getting cut.

    Stayed on that limb until it actually snapped, lol.

  • alex7

    lol RaidO making no sense.

    RR says Flynn was the front-runner.

    You counter showing Flynn started OTAs as the starter.

    Someone had to go 1st, doesn’t make RR wrong.

    Wake up idjit. DA said Flynn was the presumptive starter. That means until Pryor shows something good that can unseat Flynn he will be the 2 QB. Does that help you to understand son.

    I said this morning they would say that Flynn was injured

    wrist tendinitis last two Indianapolis ?

  • RaiderRetribution

    Regalcinemas just trying to start something, so we don’t have to read anymore posts regarding Pryor vs Flynn clamation big fued.

  • big pep

    If we are only suppose to win 4-5 games this year, we may as well go with Pryor. Younger,faster,mobile,bigger arm. its gonna be a long season watching Matt needing arm rest after 3 completions that go no further than 5-10 yards.

    No talk about his elbow since he was traded and now it’s bad again…

    Dakota

    even if Pryor only plays 1 series vs Seattle’s starters, that’s more than he’s done in any other game.

    More importantly, Pryor needs to show that game 3 wasn’t a fluke after looking bad vs Saints and below average vs Cowboys.

    Pryor will start vs Indy. Flynns arm will still be on ice.

    The P-Nut Gallery is gonna look pretty stupid (again) when Flynn trots out as the starter in week 1.

    All this screeching about how it’s over and me and the others that dupported Flynn should just leave cuz we got beat down.

    Gonna look like the clowns they are.

    Watch when Pryor comes out and stinks Thursday. Gulp. “Did I say that?”

    ……….

    That’s what it’s all about. When Pryor sh1ts the bed (he really won’t) you can say I told you so. That’s it. But remember, you started it long ago with the non stop horrible rants about how bad Pryor was and how he sucks. 24/7. So if people are a little fired up it is because of that. But all along Pryor was and is still wearing silver and black. Hmmmmm. Go figure.
    *********
    Wrong. It STARTED with missdick and priest.

    Their ridiculous race baiting hyperbole deserved to get slammed and that’s what we did.

    The Pryor Brigade is populated with hideous liars and know-nothing football buffoons.

    Missdick calls everyone white supremacists.

    Priest posts klan pix and calls people grand wizard.

    Riff continues with every post to talk about hood wearing flynnchmobs.

    These cretins brought this mess to the table and we told them they were idiots.

    Pryor isn’t a good passer and a four good passes don’t change it.

    Flynn has always done well and one bad pass doesn’t change that.
