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. “He gets us in the right position, when it comes to making plays he goes through great reads. You know something, he don’t turn the ball over much there, also. It’s going to be something that’s going to help. 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.
