Flynn to sit out Seattle game _ tendonitis

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, August 25th, 2013 at 1:16 pm in Oakland Raiders.

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.

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

    That’s just dumb junior.

    And yet you waited until for a really long time to say that until you thought I was gone!
    Hilarious.

    That’s just funny.

    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.
    llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll
    Priestt and Misdick like to play the race card.

  • VanHeathen30

    His elbow was bad in Seattle, that’s why i was concerned when RM signed him…
    CP had a cannon by comparison and his issues with tendonitis took a lot of zip off of his passes…
    MF didn’t have a cannon before the tendonitis became and issue and now, you can count the revolutions on his pass as it flies…
    not good and can explain a lot.
    Just wondering who the freakin team doctor is that OK’d the signing…they have heard of MRI’s in the Riader HQ…

  • raiders or haters

    Plenty of fake Raiders on this site!

  • Raider Fan in Fremont

    Flynn look so so average at best ok I suppose vs Dallas.

    NO game was WTF ? Last 2 minute drive had more to do with Payton calling off the dogs cuz he’d already humiliated Allen enough than flynn being any good. Anyway Flynn was WTF here we go. A crap season.

    Chi was brutal.

    It’s been a downward spiral. No stats. Just facts.

  • regallengo

    Come on. admitt it. So many people here want Pryor to start because he’s black. Those that feel that way don’t want Flynn to start because he’s white. Who are the racist here anyway.

  • 0ak r8rs

    Anyone have a link to the Rex Ryan presser? I’d love to see the whole thing.

  • VanHeathen30

    I’d like to think that RM would be so shrewd as to bring MF in to push TP, but be real, he wanted MF to be the starter based on his days in GB and the fact that MF is is guy…
    We’d know what he thought if RM wasn’t in hiding from the media…isn’t he due for another pre season interview…

  • VanHeathen30

    I give Mark Davis a ton of credit for having an impromptu conversation with Kawakami before the game Friday night, RM was right there, and said NADA…

    isn’t it kinda sad you were impressed with Pryor the first 2 weeks?

    6-10 with INT vs Dallas
    1-5 for 9 yards vs NO

    But he didn’t “suck” like Flynn did, right?

    funny how biased these guys are, and they’re blind to it.

  • raiders or haters

    Flynn came here to be Pryor’s backup.He has played and handled that role well in the past.TP is a leader
    by nature.Give him his due.He’s worked his ass off to
    get in this postion and has seized the moment. RAIDER OR HATERS TIL I DIE!

  • RaidO

    I have been saying this would happen ever since Flynn was traded to the Raiders.. I knew they would blame the elbow when he started to suck. Flynn is just a career back up plain and simple. Total waste of time and money on this noodle QB with a bad elbow(allegedly or JUST SUCKS).. He had one over hyped deceiving game. This is on Reggie.

    Elbow tendinitis could depress trade value of Seahawks’ Matt Flynn

    NFL teams interested in acquiring Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Flynn, who was relegated to a backup role last season by rookie Russell Wilson, will want to pay close attention to the passer’s physical exam pending any trade.

    Flynn has spent much of the offseason working to correct elbow tendinitis in his throwing arm which limited him in competition with Wilson last summer, a person close to the quarterback told USA TODAY Sports. The person, who also says Flynn will not require surgery, spoke on the condition of anonymity because the Seahawks had not disclosed the extent of the injury.

    Flynn has been working out at the Athletes’ Performance Center in Gulf Breeze, Fla., this offseason. He signed a three-year contract with the Seahawks last year after backing up Aaron Rodgers with the Green Bay Packers for his first three pro seasons. He is set to earn $5.25 million in base salary in 2013.

    because Pryor is black. That’s all. The white boy can’t cut it but the black guy can and he’s being held back because Reg and DA hate black people. What makes the racism by the coaching staff is that Reggie is black. What a trader to his race!

    Haha. Why would I shrink from an argument? Not exactly my MO

    And moreover, why would I shrink from an argument with you? I proved you wrong yesterday, and again today.

    Funny thing is, we’ve been going back and forth for 2 days, and yet I actually think you r a decent guy and have some knowledge.

    But you’re not a man. You refused to apologize yesterday after being called out for attacking me for something I didn’t say. We went round and round for hours. Still no apology.

    Be a man. Own up to it. And I’ll stop trolling on the 10% of the things you say that r incredibly stupid, and start paying attention to the other 90% again.

    All you gotta do is say “sorry” or “my bad” or whatever. It’s easy. Just man up.

  • logic82

    This is why I’m so up in the air about RM. The sheer absurdity of some of these personnel decisions. He has shown a disturbing trend of buying damaged goods. I could maybe excuse one or two especially given the money constraints. But this Flynn thing has just taken from skeptical to a major WTF. Bartell, Brisiel, Spenser, Hayden, Murry, and now the absolute biggest sin is Flynn. We were involved in a two pick trade, giving him over six million dollars a year and to add insult to injury we restructured his contract- TWICE- so as to give him all his money upfront.

    I keep thinking RM is getting worked. The old boy network of NFL insiders, which he thinks he is piped into, is feeding him major BS and laughing at him, (see Brown and Hue) so that they can palm (er) their trash off on him. He is getting absolutely killed in these personnel negotiations.

    It could be they are throwing up a smoke screen to I guess save Flynn some embarrassment but it makes RM look like a saboteur, at best.

  • VanHeathen30

    R O H; thanks, i just wanted this house cleaning done last year, and to be on our way back up, which maybe we are. Hayden looks like he’s got all the tools for his position,and should be fun to watch develop, just like all the other youngster, like TP.
    Just can’t afford to miss on anyone at this stage…

    BTW;I’M DONE HARPING ON RM. Letting my frustrations get the best of me, just so sick of being a laughing stock franchise…
