07:12 AM ET 08.08 | So much for any extended intrigue. The Oakland Raiders haven't officially named a starting quarterback. Unofficially, everyone knows that that Matt Flynn, barring injury or a preseason collapse, will be the guy. If there was any doubt about that, running back Darren McFadden removed most of it on Wednesday, during an interview on NBCSN's Pro Football Talk. "Yes, pretty much," McFadden told Erik Kuselias on the question of whether Flynn will start. "Matt is a very smart guy," McFadden added. ... "We got a quarterback who stands there and is not going to turn the ball over. That's something that Matt has been doing in this camp so I'm looking forward to getting out there with him and just putting everything together on Sundays." So there you have it. Matt Flynn will be the starting quarterback in Oakland. If there was really any doubt.

I was hoping to read about how they were bringing back JaWalrus Russell.

McFadden spills the beans on Oakland QB

I thought this was going to be a story about clumsiness at the buffet table.

I've noticed that barbeque places have upped their game on the baked beans. They used to be almost straight from the can, but now we're seeing them made with multiple varieties of beans, and even chunks of brisket thrown in. Better sides, better beer on tap, better barbeque.

So much for all the geniuses that thought Pryor would beat out Flynn a few days ago when there was a TP thread about him getting snaps.

Beans are more than just a condiment when it comes to quality BBQ. We BBQ fans in Texas have known this for quite some time. A little shredded brisket added to the mix is always a welcome enhancement. Takes those Boston baked beans to another level of wonderfulness.


Gotta have quality potato salad too... and creamed corn.

Coleslaw (and hush puppies) goes with catfish.

Flynn was a great acquisition for the Raiders.

Sounds like someone's upset that the "Natinals" got swept.

Looks like Flynn will probably get his shot, will he take advantage of it?

That may be true, but I would wait until at least mid-season before making up my mind about it.
