Will Matt Flynn get beat out for another starting job?

By Sid Saraf, FOXSports.com

Who will be under center for Oakland when the regular season starts? Yes, Matt Flynn is on top of the depth chart, but after his performance on Friday night against the Bears, questions are growing.

Flynn threw a pair of interceptions in the first half and finished 3 of 6 passing for 19 yards as the Raiders fell behind 24-0. The boo birds came out in force.

And the calls for backup Terrelle Pryor began.




Mr. Schrager brings up a good point. Flynn has been underwhelming this preseason … how much longer will they continue to roll with him? Backup QB Terrelle Pryor is still very raw, but he did play well on Friday night.

Pryor led four scoring drives, two of which went for touchdowns: He ran one in from 25 yards out and then found Nick Kasa for a 19-yard strike. When he left the game in the fourth quarter, the Raiders had cut the Bears’ lead to 27-20. Not bad.

Will we see a repeat performance of 2012, when Flynn was beaten out for the Seahawks quarterback job by Russell Wilson? At this point, you have to say that it’s very possible.
