For the third time this preseason the Raiders made their case for why they could be the worst team in football. At one point Friday night they trailed the Bears 27-0 in the first half and the starters -- on both sides of the ball -- looked overmatched for much of the evening. That includes quarterback Matt Flynn who was 3-of-6 for 19 yards and two interceptions. Meanwhile backup Terrelle Pryor was making his case for more playing time. Pryor who recently switched to No. 2 JaMarcus Russell's old number was 7-of-9 for 93 yards and a touchdown. He also ran for 37 yards on four carries including a rushing touchdown. Coach Dennis Allen perhaps realizing that things could get much much worse before they get better is keeping an open mind about who will be under center when the season begins even if Flynn is considered the favorite. “I think obviously we have to look at it” Allen said when asked about the starting quarterback situation. “I think when you look at it I don't think Matt played well in this game. Obviously I thought Terrelle came in and gave us a spark. I thought he played well in the game. I think that's something that we have to go and look at it. I'm not going to make any decisions on anything obviously tonight. I want to get a chance to go back and look at the tape and see how things went. But it was obvious that Terrelle gave us a little bit of a spark tonight.”
