Raiders head coach Dennis Allen was asked if he thought about benching Matt Flynn for Matt McGloin during the game.
“Not really. I just didn’t feel like that was a better option. I think Matt Flynn was our best option to give us a chance and we didn’t play well enough,” said Allen, per Raiders.com.
Allen says the sacks that Flynn gave up hurt them.
“Obviously, I don’t think he saw the field very good today. I think he was obviously part of some of the sacks that we gave up in the game. It was a tough situation for him to go in to and obviously, with the loss of McFadden and Reece that didn’t help him out any. Offensively, we didn’t get it done and that’s really the bottom line.”
He continued, “Really it’s being about seeing the field and what I talk about is seeing coverage and being able to deliver the ball, so some of those sacks are partly on him and partly on protection. Everybody is involved in that, but that’s what I’m talking about.”
The good news is that Terrelle Pryor should be ready for next week’s game.

How did Matt Flynn get a $20 million contract? Flynn has no pocket awareness and reads a defense as if they were playing with braille. QB Terrelle Pryor's job security skyrocketed in the wake of Flynn's performance.
Raiders coach Dennis Allen went back and forth on whether to play Terrelle Pryor against Washington until finally reaching a decision the night before Sunday's game.

In the beginning of the game against the Washington Redskins, Oakland had the lead until the third quarter due to the Redskins’ disastrous offensive performance. What was the turning point in the game that caused the Redskins to overturn the Raiders? Washington’s defense picked up the slack of their offense, resulting in an ending score of Washington 24, Oakland 14.
How did quarterback...
Offense:With Pryor out, the Raiders were in for a long day. Even the strongest Matt Flynn supporters did their best disappearing act after Flynn struggled so much. He holds onto the ball way too long and stared down his receivers all day. Matt Flynn is not a starting NFL quarterback. The offensive line struggled to block with Flynn at quarterback. They gave up seven sacks...

With the news that Vince Wilfork is most likely done for the season with an Achilles injury, it was only a matter of time before someone would contact free agent, and former Patriot standout, Richard Seymour to gauge his interest in a possible return to New England.
Seymour's response? Short, per Ron Borges of the Boston Herald:
When asked if he'd come back...
Reached this morning at his home outside of Atlanta former Patriots and Raiders defensive lineman Richard Seymour indicated that he was not considering a return to New England in the wake of Vince Wilfork's season-ending Achilles injury.
When asked if he'd come back to the Patriots where he was part of all three Super Bowl championship teams Seymour chuckled responding ...
The Raiders didn’t have their starting quarterback and lost their star running back early in the second half.
And the Redskins still struggled to pull out a victory at O.co Coliseum. But Robert Griffin III and Co. made just enough plays in the second half to escape with a 24-14 victory and breathe life back into their season.
At 1-3 the Redskins still have much work to do. But...
The game started out much like the first three weeks have for the Washington Redskins, down by 14 early on. The Redskins surrendered an early touchdown to the Raiders after a blocked punt from Sav Rocca was recovered in the end-zone. Matt Flynn, who was unexpectedly making his first start for Oakland in place of [...]
A dominant defensive performance helped the Washington Redskins head into their bye finally feeling good about themselves.
