It’s Pryor, then McGloin . . . Flynn No. 3

The Raiders are now paying their third string quarterback a guaranteed $6.5 million.

Coach Dennis Allen said Wednesday Matt McGloin would be the backup quarterback for Terrelle Pryor against the San Diego Chargers and not Matt Flynn. Pryor is free of symptoms from his concussion and will start against the Chargers Sunday night at O.co Coliseum.

“It hasn’t worked out like we anticipated and we’ve got to make decisions and we’ve got to move forward and continue to go,” Allen said. “Matt’s going to continue to battle and scratch and claw and I still believe that he’s a capable quarterback, but we’re going to give McGloin a chance.”

McGloin, an undrafted free agent, beat the odds once already with a Raider, winning the spot as the third quarterback over fourth-round pick Tyler Wilson. Now he’s supplanted Flynn, who was tentative and unsure in a 24-14 loss to the Washington Redskins while Pryor recovered from a concussion.

“I like what Matt brings to the table as far as his competitiveness, he’s got some moxie to him,” Allen said. “He just understands how to play the game and I don’t think it’s too big for him. I think he’ll come in and if he’s called upon to run the offense I think he’ll do a good job. He’s smart, he throws an accurate ball, he’s got good arm strength. He’s good in decision-making, so I like what this kid has to work with.”

    U going to call ur wife on him? Going for the family muscle, huh? She has u jumpin when she says jump, so she must be scary.

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    I’d take that bet, but the street cred isn’t there.
    Unlike those that antagonize you, I find a few of your takes rife with humor.
    However, I also remember you saying you would only post on game days.

  • Papertiger

    You already lost a bet when Pryor was named the starter. Take a hint and just get out of here already. No one will miss you except your other handles, I promise.

  • Al_istheRaiders

    a top ten qb lost? no say it aint sooo..,,

  • Breaking_Black

    Letting go of Lechler looks even dumber now.
    We would’ve had a bigger arm at 3rd string QB.

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    Hire Saunders now (HC).

  • R8derdiehard

    Lmao dr slobert and Alex I dedicate this article to you. With your non stop rants about Flynn he is the F-ing 3rd string qb behind an i drafted rookie hahahahahahaha

  • J Hill

    onder if Watson gets some run at OG??

  • the flynnatic dr robert

    You have no balls. No job. No friends. No life. You fake fly, and your wife is halloween ready. You’ve been trumped.

  • seymour bush

    Again, Bradford lost Steven Jackson and Danny Amendola. And they replaced them with seemingly dudes from this blog. That has to hurt Bradford. But my point is watching the fans resoundingly boo Bradford made him and their team play worse and worse. The same thing happened here.

  • Al_istheRaiders

    the most obvious thing was his lack of arm strength…the velocity of his throws was sorrly lacking…

  • cliftonpugh

    I think Watson would be better at tackle bookends would be sweet we can get a guard in like the 2nd or third round next year, especially if you are looking for run blocking mauler type. http://thegoalpostjournal.com/raiders-are-weak-at-the-most-important-postion/

  • seymour bush

    Well said both of you. Let’s move on, and try to rally around one player.

  • Papertiger

    I don’t think we have the cap space to claim Freeman’s contract. Besides, he’s probably done with pirate-themed teams for the time being.

  • the flynnatic dr robert

    when I’m 78 I’ll probably feel the same. You know, the foolishness and all.
    Until then shut up.

  • Scourge of the East

    Kooky, you old pootbutt, how are ya?

  • the flynnatic dr robert

    When u sober up, and read that, u’ll realize how ignorant u come across.
    then again, maybe not

  • Scourge of the East

    Good evening, all!

    Shout outs to P-man and Crawfishdaddy Joe!

    Long Live the Beeeech Diggs!

  • nolimits3333

    Shrek is possessed by Al’s spirit. He even drafted a DB in the first round!

  • KoolKell

    Weak as usual, Troll.

  • the flynnatic dr robert

    Not flynn’s fault. All on DA. I can see that. U can see that. Everyone can see that. DA is a fraud. Flynn will finish this season as the starter and all of you will beg my forgiveness.

  • Davy Jones

    Piecrust promise. The mob could cut off your fingers and you’d troll with a dialing wand attached to your Flynn rubbin’ nubbins.

  • the flynnatic dr robert

    Saying good evening all indicates u are of the feminine gender.
    Whats next? U want to know how our day went?

  • Gdog

    Thats what I said all off-season fighting with the Pryor Brigade… I want him to WIN the job because he earned it, not just get handed the job because he’s fun to watch play. To my grateful surprise, not only did he win the job hands down, he’s turning into a damn fine QB.

    That last 12 play drive he had before he got his noggin knocked loose was a thing of beauty. If he can sustain drives like that for the rest of his career, the Raiders will be in fine shape for the future.

  • R8derdiehard

    You have officially reached a pathetic state i will no longer argue with you I will now treat you like a SPECIAL needs person

  • …And Justice for AL

    Wow, it’s like they’re giving us what we asked for…. Can we bring Lawrence Taylor in to start? …maybe?

  • Gdog

    Do you even realize you’re trolling? Nah.. never mind… you don’t. You are a sociopath.

  • the flynnatic dr robert

    Weak? I saw that pic u posted of that lil gremlin.
    Also saw that pic of ur bubbleass and herman munster mug.
    Not weak. scary.

  • Davy Jones

    As a side note to all of this, and I’m just guessing here…you aren’t a REAL doctor…are you? Because yikes.

  • the flynnatic dr robert

    weak, Genital Dog

  • Gdog

    20/20 hindsite that money could have been much better spent on Lechlar and an extra lineman (anyone really.)

    If nothing else, Jani would still be automatic.

  • …And Justice for AL

    Hahahahaha … Now juggle clown

  • Scourge of the East

    I was just passing through. Schoolwork to do.

    Good night from the East Coast!

  • Zymurge

    Apparently very few noticed the new post of the same title. Just sayin’

  • HGDaddy

    It sounds like those QB coaches he hired in the off-season helped him out somewhat. Hire them again next off-season and let’s see more progress!

  • …And Justice for AL

    Wait…. So your admitting that your a cross posting troll?

  • …And Justice for AL

    I’d take that bet, but only if the bet is for him not starting the last 6 weeks because he loses his starting position from performance, not from injury.

  • DutchRaid

    Does anybody know if there is going to be Bart Service for the game?
    Thank you…

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    Not for long.
    Pay cut is next.
    Then the refusal.
    Then the Turk.

  • HGDaddy

    Tweeted this last night: No later BART trains planned past 12:20 am Sunday so get a move on after #Raiders game. They’ll adjust if overtime

  • DutchRaid

    Thank you very much!

  • the flynnatic dr robert

    Ur an idiot Danny. People can click on our handles and see that we have different post histories.

    Pathetic.

  • Raider Rick

    Flynn will only receive 3 mil of the 6 mil salary….so yeah expensive 3rd stringer ….Bet you he gets cut when they bring back Burris or Holmes….

  • nikemike7

    guaranteed, McMoxie will run the offense better than both Pryor or Flynn. And he is just a rookie.

  • nikemike7

    stay tuned, things are just about to begin.

  • nikemike7

    now that’s just consipatorical thinkin. Don’t do it. However, will say this, “anytime your O-line sux, you def put your QB in jeopardy”—-be he mobile or otherwise. Eventually, you’re gonna pay.

  • nikemike7

    Not so, moreso the “best of the bunchsters”.

  • nikemike7

    Pryor is def the best of the bunch. Thang is, how long can/will he last at it.

  • nikemike7

    why would u throw a 1st yr proven college rookie under the bus without giving him a chance ? McMoxie deserves his shot as well as Flynn & Pryor.

  • nikemike7

    and your point ?
