Bay Sports Report:
The Raiders had a very encouraging practice on Wednesday, with many key players returning and a shakeup in the depth chart. Here’s an overview of what took place today. Flynn fell hard after that abysmal performance on Sunday. Good news, Raiders fans: you don’t have to worry about seeing Flynn for a while. During his press conference, Dennis Allen confirmed that Flynn is now the third QB on the depth chart, bringing undrafted free-agent Matt McGloin into a backup role. If you haven’t yet watched seen what McGloin can do and are concerned about this move, watch this and this. I commend Dennis Allen and Reggie McKenzie for making such a bold move. Until the end of the preseason, Flynn had the support of the coach and GM, although they preached an open competition. With this reshaking of the depth chart, it’s very clear that this team is going to play the best players possible, and it doesn’t matter where they came from. I absolutely love this, as it promotes serious team growth a...

It’s hard to fathom that Terrelle Pryor has become the heart and soul of the Oakland Raiders after just three starts this season. While Pryor’s detractors have continued to say that Pryor does not have an NFL caliber arm or pocket poise, Pryor has shown that he is capable of being a solid quarterback in this league. What makes Pryor’s performance this year so remarkable...

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released quarterback Josh Freeman earlier today after several failed attempts to trade him, ESPN.com reported. Freeman, who was drafted 17th overall in 2009, played fairly well for Tampa Bay – he played his best during the 2010 season in which he threw for 3,451 yards, 25 touchdowns, only six interceptions and completed...

Watch out society, it is happening again. Vacate the streets, lock the doors, shut the blinds, have 9-1-1 on speed dial because the moment you have all been dreading has arrived. I can smell the sulfur emitting from my pores, hot and foul, cascading up to the sky and amassing into a giant slime green cleat, pummeling the ozone layer into submission...
Veteran defensive end Jason Hunter was another bargain free agent signing by general manger Reggie McKenzie that has stepped up this season for the Oakland Raiders. Hunter is a typical Raiders signing under the McKenzie era as he has played under both McKenzie and head coach Dennis Allen during his career.
The former undrafted free agent Hunter has been a rotational defensive end...
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 running back Darren McFadden hamstring was held out of practice for a second straight day, while fullback Marcel Reece (knee) was on the field practicing with his teammates.
McFadden still out, now where to be seen (bad sign). Wisniewski out, but watching practice. #raiders

looks like McGloin has jumped Flynn on #raiders depth chart

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...
Quarterback Terrelle Pryor will start this week after missing last week’s game with a concussion.
Pryor is symptom free, will start for Raiders vs. Chargers. Matt McGloin is backup. Flynn dropped to No. 3 QB

This is certainly great news after last week’s loss to the Redskins. You would have to imagine that if Pryor played, the...
Terrelle Pryor is symptom-free and will start Sunday night’s Week 5 game against the Chargers. I am exited for Pryor, because he has been pretty surprising this year. Pryor will lead the Raiders into their 11:35 game against the Chargers which will be aired on the NFL Network. Pryor has been putting up at least 18 […]
Raiders HC Dennis Allen announced on Wednesday that undrafted rookie free agent Matt McGloin will take over as the team’s backup quarterback behind Terrelle Pryor.
“It is what it is. It didn’t work out,” Allen said, via Vic Tafur.
As if things couldn’t possibly get worse for Matt Flynn, he’s now lost a job for the third time in less than two years.
Allen basically threw...

Flynn making $6.5 million guaranteed this year was brought in by general manager Reggie McKenzie to be the starting quarterback and was beaten out by Terrelle Pryor in the preseason...
The Chicago Bears (3-1) are looking to improve their situation at the punter position following a rough performance by Adam Podlesh in the team’s 40-32 loss to the Detroit Lions (3-1). Podlesh, 30, averaged 28.8 yards on his five punts on Sunday and helped gift Detroit with great field position when he hit a line drive right to Lions returner Michael Spurlock, who took off for...
The Oakland Raideres will have Terrelle Pryor under center for Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers.

The Raiders have also moved Matt Flynn, who started last week, to third string promoting undrafted rookie Matt McGloin to the backup role.
TIME CHANGE: Raiders and Chargers...
