Matt Flynn is getting the same old song treatment, and again with a new team.  Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie has made it known that Flynn is was acquired to be his starting quarterback. “We’re going to begin with Matt Flynn,” McKenzie said before the draft. “Now, the quarterbacks who will be on the roster from that point on, they will all compete. Like I said, every position, it’s all about getting players that can play and competing.” “I think he’s going to be a solid quarterback,” McKenzie said of Flynn. “Now how good can he be? We’ll figure that out, but I think he’s got a chance to be a good, solid quarterback. He hasn’t played a lot of games so that’s what’s ahead of him, to see how he plays. He’ll get in here and compete and try to see if he can show his team and coaches if he can play.” McKenzie let it be known that Terrelle Pryor would have the opportunity to compete for the starting quarterback job.  All that was said even before the Raiders drafted strong armed Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson on Saturday.  McKenzie was asked after drafting Wilson where things stood. “He’s a rookie,” McKenzie said of Wilson. “I want him to learn the playbook first. Get out here and make sure he gets behind the center, not behind the guard. You want these guys to come in and just show the coaches and their team, number one, that they belong. Then all the other stuff will come.” Matt Flynn has to be dealing with Déjà vu at this point and time, and unfortunately unlike most starting quarterbacks in the league, can’t spend one moment comfortable about his job.
