In a way you could say that Matt Flynn can't catch a break, but you could also say that he has caught a tremendous break and his moment has come to pass. It has been reported that the Oakland Raiders have decided to go with former Ohio State star Terrelle Pryor as the starting quarterback over Flynn.
Yes, Flynn has been passed over yet again.
Early Monday the word was that Raiders Head Coach Dennis Allen was going to hold off on naming a starting quarterback in hopes of gaining some sort of competitive advantage over the Colts (copying all the college coaches that waited as long as possible, eh?).
But apparently he told Flynn and Pryor what the plan was. So either someone was happy and talked or someone was angry and talked.
Either way--Pryor is starting.
The move is not too surprising. The NFL is trending towards mobile quarterbacks that are a threat to run as well as pass. Pretty much Terrelle Pryor in a nut shell.
For Flynn you have to wonder what's next. ...
