09:49 AM ET 08.24 | Raiders coach Dennis Allen said he's still undecided on the team's starting quarterback following their Week 3 preseason loss to the Bears. Coach Allen: "I think obviously we have to look at it. I think when you look at it I don't think Matt [Flynn] played well in this game. Obviously, I thought Terrelle [Pryor] 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."

Pryor should start because he can make plays behind that OL. Flynn gets very little time to throw before he gets sacked. Pryor looked really good last night and he is more confident in running the offense.

Pryor had 1 play where he ran around for 5 seconds before making a nice completion that turned into a long gain.

So much for my 8-8 prediction...

The Cowboys should do better than that.

Flynn will be the starter.

Not many people do.

All Flynn needs is an NFL caliber O line. But as Oakland's more resembles that of an Arena Football team, the Raiders need a QB who can run for his life and that's not Flynn.

Not in pre-season, it's not.

A moment of silence is in order...Thank you.

First, who said Flynn could play QB. He didn't wow them in GB, was a bench sitter in Seattle and Oakland says they aren't sure. I got a 100 that says Oakland starts Pryor and that bet was before pre season. Its the age of the running QB. Drop back QB's are a dying bread. You got a couple that are still pretty good but the running QB like Pryor will rule the world since it keeps the d line from charging.
On thing you got to admire about Flynn, he gets paid dam good money to sit on the bench. I wonder if they can cut him as a lost cause and save a ton o money?

Brady, Brees and Manning disagree with you.

Maybe, but that doesn't mean he should be. In the preseason, Flynn is spending more time on his back than a hooker.

Flynn is awful.

When he gets time to throw he's fine. But, the OL sucks at protecting him and giving him time to find an open WR.

I think so too. He's their big-money quarterback. Not real big money, of course, but the rest are all small-money quarterbacks. So, he is the presumptive starter and will have the job until he loses it.

The question is, how many weeks until he loses it? Colts, Jags, Broncos and Redskins, in that order. They could start 3-1, or they could start 0-4.
