Dennis Allen: Matt Schaub is the Raiders’ starting quarterback

mattschaub AP

Matt Schaub will not need to win a quarterback competition in Oakland to become the Raiders’ starting quarterback. He already is the Raiders’ starting quarterback.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said after Schaub arrived in a trade with the Texans that Schaub will open the season as the No. 1 quarterback.

We brought Matt Schaub in to be our starting quarterback,” Allen said. “We feel very confident that he is going to be able to come in and function in that role and be outstanding for us. Obviously, we love having competition within the team, but right now Matt Schaub is our starting quarterback.”

The Raiders also have Terrelle Pryor, Matt McGloin and Trent Edwards on the roster, and they could draft a quarterback like Teddy Bridgewater, Blake Bortles, Johnny Manziel or Derek Carr. But Allen, who was an assistant coach in Atlanta when the Falcons drafted Schaub in 2004, says Schaub is his guy.

“This is a guy that is a two-time Pro Bowl player. When you get an opportunity to add those type of players, that’s what we’re looking to do,” Allen said.

Now the Raiders have to hope Schaub looks more like a two-time Pro Bowler and less like the guy who was benched last year.

    I wouldn’t be bragging about that, Dennis…..

    Reggie can’t pay Houston or velhder because he says production didn’t match pay t. his administation is two faced mike brisel sucks overpaid him now 10 million and next year 14 mill and 16 mill after that for Schaub really Reggie still no core players after 70 million cap space you suck

  3. tuberippin says: Mar 22, 2014 7:25 AM

    “Matt Schaub to James Jones” was not a QB-WR combo I anticipated in Silver and Black going into the 2014 season.

  4. bigwinintx says: Mar 22, 2014 7:26 AM

    The good thing about having Schaub on the Raiders, he won’t throw a pick six to them.

    The Raider-Nation is unlike The Texans’ fans, when he does a crappy job in Oakland, he’s gonna hear it all game and week long.

    Matt Schaub > Michael Vick

  6. joeflaccoallday says: Mar 22, 2014 7:32 AM

    Must be hard to be a Raiders fan.

  7. elmaxoh says: Mar 22, 2014 7:33 AM

    Good luck raiders fan …

  8. atlfan31833 says: Mar 22, 2014 7:36 AM

    He was good as a Falcon and it would’ve been nice to have kept him because shortly thereafter was the Vick fiasco. I’m hoping for his sake that last year was just a terrible fluke.

  9. peytonsneck18 says: Mar 22, 2014 7:37 AM

    pick 6’s for every afc west squads, congrats yal

  10. craigkintexas says: Mar 22, 2014 7:37 AM

    I hope Matt does well with the Raiders. I still don’t know what/where his confidence went last year. He obviously has/had the ability as he showed us over the years. Good luck Matt.

  11. peytonsneck18 says: Mar 22, 2014 7:37 AM

    it could be worse, he couldve gotten traded to the…………………………………….well nevermind

  12. supremekingz says: Mar 22, 2014 7:43 AM

    I still think Shaub got dissed in Houston. The last 5 years he’s been pretty much good/great when healthy. He’s even lead the lead in passing yards before. He had one absolute dreadful year and then he was thrown in the garbage.

    I think he can have a bounce back season in Oakland. No matter what, he can’t do any worse than he did last season

  13. jredshoes says: Mar 22, 2014 7:51 AM

    This move should just about lock up 4th place in the AFC west

  14. chargersdiehard says: Mar 22, 2014 7:52 AM

    The super bowl express just found its magic coal!

  15. huskerguy says: Mar 22, 2014 7:55 AM

    And the revolving QB door that is the Raiders continues.

    Not sure who has worse luck- them or the Brownies.

  16. arwiv says: Mar 22, 2014 8:07 AM

    In a draft when more and more experts are saying that there are no true stud QB’s coming out, Id rather get a guy like Schaub, who has at least shown the ability to QB in the NFL, then to waste a 5th overall pick on a crapshoot. Basically every pick in the top 10 this year who ISNT a QB will probably be a slam dunk all-pro caliber player.

  17. justwinsomeday says: Mar 22, 2014 8:13 AM

    The options to find a staring caliber QB were limited, so trading a 6th and absorbing the salary when you have to spend anyway to hit the threshold was a no brainer.

    There’s no guaranteed money so he can be released anytime if it doesn’t work out, so it doesn’t impact future seasons with dead money.

    Plus if Shaub and the Texans wouldn’t have struggled last year, he wouldn’t have been available this year.

    Now that said, McKenzie and Allen might have hitched their future in Oakland to the Shaub wagon, so I hope it works out.

  18. ez4u2sa says: Mar 22, 2014 8:16 AM

    The Raiders season is now over before it has begun. A fourth place finish is guaranteed

  19. diegiantsdie says: Mar 22, 2014 8:17 AM

    What a joke of a franchise. They go and spend money and picks on washed up players. Are they trying to be last this season. Everyone over there needs to be fired

  20. whyuknowdat says: Mar 22, 2014 8:23 AM

    Just like the GREAT Tom Brady and the GREAT Peyton Manning, if you can’t protect Schaub then he sucks. IF they can keep him upright along with a solid running game, this should work out quite well for Oakland.

    And yes, I did put Schaub in the same sentence as those other two because it doesn’t matter who you are when the line cant protect you.

  21. chiadam says: Mar 22, 2014 8:28 AM

    Obviously, we love competition within the team. We’re just not going to have any at the most important position on the team.

  22. filthymcnastyog says: Mar 22, 2014 8:32 AM

    The fact that certain organizations feel the need to announce who there quarterback is (or isn’t) in March is just sad to me. Take a page out of Belichick’s book and just be quiet. What if they draft someone that looks 10x better in training camp then Schaub did? Then what? Make Schaub WIN his job.

    How about answering- “We will evaluate all the talent we have in training camp this year and then make the decision that’s best for the team.”

    Was that so hard?

    Maybe ANY publicity is GOOD publicity when your a bottom feeder? Or maybe that’s why your a bottom feeder. Lovie Smith made the same mistake this year.

  23. thefiesty1 says: Mar 22, 2014 8:33 AM

    Good luck with that.

  24. donkey0143 says: Mar 22, 2014 8:38 AM

    Good luck, Matt.

    Not really a fan of any of your previous teams or your current one.

    Just pulling for you to get it turned around.

    People, not everything you post needs to hate related. Have you never had a bad year? Chill out and be a little more compassionate for Pete’s sake.

  25. clownsfan says: Mar 22, 2014 8:48 AM

    Thank God. Did NOT want this guy in CLE.

  26. patriotsdefense says: Mar 22, 2014 8:49 AM

    Trent Edwards still exists?

  27. colv says: Mar 22, 2014 8:49 AM

    He bounces back and Raider Nation is on the rebound if the GM turns around. With that much cap room and the great needs Reggie misfired on the majority of hires so far because it’s not the team for the future. He has some rentals when he could have went a bit younger.

  28. TeamBalco says: Mar 22, 2014 9:00 AM

    This is what my Raiders call, “subtraction by addition.”

    #FML

  29. steelerdeathstar says: Mar 22, 2014 9:00 AM

    Agreed that Schaub has been overall a pretty good, productive NFL QB, and a change of scenery and fresh start can often do wonders for a guy like that. I think he’d have a better shot at bouncing back, though, with better overall talent around him.

  30. ballreaper says: Mar 22, 2014 9:01 AM

    Lets see the Texans are loaded with talent yet this GUY was the WEAK link and couldn’t cut it with that franchise , What are the odds on how this movie will turn out , with him going to a franchise that only wish it was the Texans in talent. I think we have seen this MOVIE before.

  31. blox96 says: Mar 22, 2014 9:07 AM

    Schaub is pretty much out of gas but he will keep his wife happy with the paycheck. There just arent enough QBs to go around and once the last tier of real QBs retire, Brady, Peyton, Brees, Rivers, Big Ben. Rogers will rule the roost and then its gonna be a free for all with Russell, Cam and Kap running the show. Foles may surprise. Poor Teddy will end up like Bob Griffin. Manziel will never surpass Mangione unless he learns to play the trumpet. Thank God I am getting old at 48. The NBA turned to crap and hopefully will survive with Roger doing everything possible to make their billions and cut off the REAL FANS with every rule they can think of to ruin the game. I played for Syracuse and would never have wanted the rules they are using now. I never got past training camp in the 80s, but getting to play the sport I love for money would have been awesome. My uncle played Pro ball and laughs at these players now. It not a game of passion anymore its a money grab. stay strong Ronnie, Lott was the toughest player I ever met.

  32. seatownballers says: Mar 22, 2014 9:10 AM

    Pryor should become a receiver to help his new qb. Senseless if the cut him

  33. joetoronto says: Mar 22, 2014 9:11 AM

    “Dennis Allen: Matt Schaub is the Raiders’ starting quarterback, until Matt McGloin is ready”

  34. raiderlyfe510 says: Mar 22, 2014 9:27 AM

    Matt Schaub is going to do just fine here. West Coast Offense QB’s peak years are in their early to mid- 30s when they gain a sense of mastery over the system.

    Schaub just needs to chew up last season and spit it out. He won’t be running that same ole’ predictable Kubiak offense here.

  35. reed20fence says: Mar 22, 2014 9:30 AM

    The man is in Oakland because of Arian Foster’s back issues, plain and simple. When your passing game is based on a credible zone stretch threat, you aren’t going to do much when the run goes away.

  36. thevikesarebest says: Mar 22, 2014 9:34 AM

    Thats very laughable.

  37. vikingdoode says: Mar 22, 2014 9:38 AM

    add Sammy Watkins…..poof FUN

  38. iccrmkd says: Mar 22, 2014 9:38 AM

    The Raiders needed a Experienced QB….NOW….Hope the Raiders can add D.Jackson….RAIDERS4LIFE….

  39. jetsjetsjetsnow says: Mar 22, 2014 9:43 AM

    He sounds like Rex did toward Sanchez.. Reminiscing in the fleeting achievements of the distant past and unable to see clearly for the present.

    Good luck with that Raiders fans. Your team will continue to struggle in obscurity..

  41. GO FOR TWO SPORTS says: Mar 22, 2014 9:50 AM

    I feel like this is another Rich Gannon in the making. Remember when The Chiefs benched Gannon for the younger Elvis Grback, Gannon was having a horrible year looking over shoulder. Chiefs fans and the whole organization turned thier back on Gannon.
    Gannon goes to Oakland where he becomes the best QB in the NFL, Turns into a pro bowler, NFL MVP and takes his team to the Superbowl…
    Only if his own coach did not rig the Superbowl.
    But I know Trey Wingo, Tim Brown, Jerry Rice, Jon Richie and even guys on The Bucs are lying…

    Matt Schaub is a perfect fit for Raiders, This is exactly what he needed. A Fresh start. I think next year Texans fans will be mad that Texans traded Schaub

  42. ugadogs21 says: Mar 22, 2014 9:54 AM

    Maybe he can rise again like Jim Plunkett….Schaub and McFadden could benefit each other. Let’s see who they find for him to throw to (cough, draft Sammy Watkins…cough)

  43. beckzhere says: Mar 22, 2014 9:55 AM

    Schaub will give the Raiders the best season they’ve had in a decade next year. Not a difficult task, but he instantly improved this organization. One bad year doesn’t negate his skill set.

  44. WestCoast 49er/Bolts says: Mar 22, 2014 10:11 AM

    You got that right

  45. dfwhawkguy says: Mar 22, 2014 10:13 AM

    Perfect match. Aging, broken down, mistake prone, past his prime joke of a QB starting for an aged, broken down, mistake prone, past their prime joke of a franchise.

  46. raidrz27 says: Mar 22, 2014 10:15 AM

    It’s too easy for morons to jump onto the Raiders Hate Wagon. They all think their comments are funny and original. But all they are doing are laughing to themselves. One bad year does not doom a QB for life. Lots of changes coming this year, just have to wait and see.

  47. aceakking says: Mar 22, 2014 10:22 AM

    Raiders keep trading for washed-up QBs only to get rid of them later on. Raiders never learn.

  48. jjackwagon says: Mar 22, 2014 10:23 AM

    And the Raiders still don’t have a QB. SMDH.

  49. bigmarv77 says: Mar 22, 2014 10:27 AM

    Shaun has been rated one of the higher rated play action in the league……the problem is he is rated at the very bottom without play action…..the zone running game afforded the ability to play to his strength…..that game in New England two years ago exposed him because they took the run game away and forced Schuab to make plays…..he cannot. They haven’t been the same team since as they fizzled out in the playoffs and film gets passed around the league pretty quickly…..Foster being hurt last year didn’t help as SSchuab asked ddo more. Good luck in Oakland but I’m somewhat sceptical.

  50. slick50ks says: Mar 22, 2014 10:28 AM

    Whats funnier than listening to the fade fans wax on poetically about how good Shaub will play for them, is when they throw in what an asset McMarshmallow will be to him too.

    Always the pre season champs, always the post season chumps.

    There’s a Matt Flynn joke here somewhere

  53. raiderej says: Mar 22, 2014 10:33 AM

    This guy is NOT a Raider! His mental makeup tells you that! A Raider is BORN and this Schaub is too weak. A true Raider would have handled the situation in Houston differently. If he had been injured doing whatever it took to chase down an stop JUST ONE of those pick six interceptors last year, I would have tons more respect for him. Instead he revealed how weak and loser-oriented he is. His stats don’t show that he is a winner because, what has he won? His stats show that for a few years he had one of the most prolific WRs in the NFL in Andre Johnson and one of the best all-around backs in Arian Foster. Schaub is a loser and unfortunately MY Raiders now own this POS. Reggie McKenzie and Dennis Allen are trying to save their jobs, not our franchise. They’re just buying time until the inevitable. I hate to say it but 4-12 or 5-11 is a real possibility again. Fan since 1976 I’m tired and mad!

  54. realfootballfan says: Mar 22, 2014 10:36 AM

    This guy never learns. Didn’t he proclaim something similar a year ago for another guy named Matt? Just sayin’.

  55. tinbender2000 says: Mar 22, 2014 10:42 AM

    He won’t be the first quarterback to come to Oakland and revive his career ( See Gannon, Plunkett).

  56. rabidboy says: Mar 22, 2014 10:43 AM

    So Schaub is a “Pro Bowler”?

    That’ll help out on Thursday league night at the Oakland Bowl-a-Rama.

  57. blueballz77 says: Mar 22, 2014 10:48 AM

    And nothing was learned with Carson Palmer deja vu

  58. realitypolice says: Mar 22, 2014 10:51 AM

    I love all of the people thinking they are being so clever pointing out how many “pick sixes” Schaub had last year.

    For the record, he had four. And if you care at all about facts, the fact is that just about every year, some QB in the NFL has at least four pick sixes. In the past six years, it’s happened eight times. Would you like to know what other QBs have thrown four pick sixes in the last six years?

    Brett Favre
    Peyton Manning
    Drew Brees
    Philip Rivers
    Carson Palmer
    Matthew Stafford
    Andy Dalton

    Eight starting QBs had more INTs than Schaub last year, including the last two Super Bowl winning QBs before this year: Manning (27), Flacco (22).

    Do yourself a favor and look at his numbers. Then consider the fact he’s 32 but didn’t play his first three years in the league. If you don’t think a player like that is a better risk than what you would typically get in the 6th round (and I don’t care about the money, the Raiders have tons of cap space) then I don’t know what to tell you.

  59. tdubdizzle says: Mar 22, 2014 11:00 AM

    As much as I hate the fact we gave up a six round draft pick, this makes all the sense in the world considering Reggie Mckenzie has to spend X amount of money before the 2016 season because of the new CBA. That is probably another reason Reggie will stay beyond this year, he has the Raiders financially set. At the very least Reggie has been a damn good Accountant.

    I have never seen a head coach/gm

  62. WestCoast 49er/Bolts says: Mar 22, 2014 11:08 AM

    Its funny that this is a Raider lovers home. I wonder how many raider fans have ever been to a game or 2. I lived in San Jose through the years of Stabler Casper Branch Belitnikoff Lester Hayes and his stick em mike Haynes kenny hill alzado hendricks Blanda Guy banazak and Mark Vaneegen how ever it is spelled, I would tee all his balls up at the Stanford driving range because he couldnt bend his knees. Howie Long was still pissin in his pants, but he still does today. That is the best years raiders ever had, now it is simply the colors east San Jose, Oaktown and L A gangs wear. Best of luck I won 10 dollars when they beat the Vikes in 5th grade, they were a legend, Stabler played more games half drunk than anyone ever. He played better that way cause he had no arm. Go silver and black

  63. psly2124 says: Mar 22, 2014 11:12 AM

    In two years this idiot Mckenzie has wasted 4 draft picks on…Matt Flynn, Tyler Wilson and Matt Schaub. So much for not trading draft picks. Didn’t you say that Reggie In Your first interview. How is Schaub any different the Carson Palmer. Oh yea he’s not as good. Congrats you bum.

  64. madroaddog says: Mar 22, 2014 11:14 AM

    His success like every QB is tied to how good the O-Line is and whether or not the Raiders can mount a sustainable running game.

  65. crisis182 says: Mar 22, 2014 11:17 AM

    I’d love to see us take Sammy Watkins with the 5th pick and really give Schaub someone to throw to. What I’m most bummed about is not keeping Rashad Jennings at a nominal salary. McFadden clearly doesn’t have what it takes to stay healthy and we’ll need a decent run game to setup the pass.

  66. Wineshard says: Mar 22, 2014 11:18 AM

    Matt Schaub = Tommy Maddox.

  67. r8dernation says: Mar 22, 2014 11:29 AM

    Here’s hopping that the Texans can go back to their glory days, you know, the David Carr years. Schaub makes them all forget about Carr and what a terrible franchise they were, then he has one bad year and it’s OMG, he’s Mr. Pick Six, we got to dump him, just cut him, get him off the team. I can’t wait to see them F up this years #1 pick.

  68. vegasgreek says: Mar 22, 2014 11:36 AM

    If the Raiders can get a top notch running game and offensive line ,Schaub can win in Oakland. my heart says draft WR Sammy Watkins , my head says LT Jake Matthews to protect Schaub and especially if they can trade for D JAX. at least now the Raiders have a shot to go 8-8 in 2014 if Schaub stays healthy.

  69. tdubdizzle says: Mar 22, 2014 11:37 AM

    Matt Schaub is this generations Jim Plunkett. Just call me a prophet already!!!

  71. rajbais says: Mar 22, 2014 12:03 PM

    Schaub with a beard??

    I wish he could at least be angry on the field.

  72. ajgreenhof says: Mar 22, 2014 12:05 PM

    He’s a two time pro-bowler because the fans are naive and actually believed he was a good QB when he was a product of a good team.

  73. casradionetwork says: Mar 22, 2014 12:07 PM

    Schaub is better than anything they have in house.
    Hardworker solid QB. My issue is giving up draft picks
    In the best draft in 15 years. RM should just keep Palmer
    And his draft pick. Schaub and Palmer are about the same level. RM also gave Seahawks picks for Matt Flynn.
    I would draft Watkins or the Tight End out of Carolina. Give Schaub as many weapons as possible.

  77. babygaga19 says: Mar 22, 2014 1:16 PM

    How does it feel when your starter was garbage on the worst team in the NFL last year?

    Just curious-

  78. kenstabler says: Mar 22, 2014 1:19 PM

    It was really no choice for the Raiders to make a late pick for Schaub. He was the best QB on the board.

    The fate of the Allen/Reggie era just began, or is it Reggie/Allen. It does not look good from here. I have huge doubts about this team in a conference that has become one of the best in the NFL.

    To little, to late. I think Reggie went to church and prayed that Darren McFadden would stay healthy for a year. I think if that happened, the Raiders would have a fighting chance.

    They need to draft a true center in the draft, and move Wiz to guard. The offensive line is key to this team. John Madden always preached a team starts with the offensive and defensive lines. In the trenches baby.

  79. renorocker2014 says: Mar 22, 2014 1:59 PM

    Great move Oakland. The off season is going as planned. Keep up the great work

  80. drunkraider says: Mar 22, 2014 2:12 PM

    haters going to hate, but know this. He is better than anything the Raiders have on the roster and thank god they didnt get sanchez.

  81. bworacle says: Mar 22, 2014 2:41 PM

    Don’t be deluded into thinking that last season was a fluke. As a long suffering Texans fan including both the David Carr and Matt Schaub eras I have seen the best and worst of Schaub. I have seen every play he has made in every game he has ever played for the Texans. Even at his peak with the Texans, he would have great games but there would always be even in those games where Schaub would have 2 or 3 bonehead plays that cost them a victory.

    Schaub’s current struggles started the last quarter of the 2012 season. His lack of arm strength means a lot of 5 yard dunk passes and easy anticipation by defending cornerbacks. Under pressure in the pocket he folds easily either throwing an interception or collapsing to the ground from sensing defenders without any physical contact. The Raiders better have A++ offensive line protection or Schaub will be a disaster. Kubiak’s offense relied a lot on deception to make Schaub look better than he was. It also doesn’t hurt to have Andre Johnson to come back to the ball to save Schaub’s ass.

  82. savojah says: Mar 22, 2014 2:53 PM

    People hate on raider fans, because they wish their fan base was as well known as raider fans.

  83. jgreg8330 says: Mar 22, 2014 3:39 PM

    Dennis Allen and Reggie McKenzie are complete jokes. It’s now obvious that the “build for future” project has been abandoned just so these two blokes can try to keep their jobs. I hope baby Davis fires their asses at the end of what will be another miserable season. Core talent has been let go, only to bring in veterans. I wouldn’t be upset or surprised if MD fired them in the middle of the season.

    How does it feel when your starter was garbage on the worst team in the NFL last year?

    Just curious-

    They needed a veteran QB, and he’s a better option than Vick or Sanchez. He wasn’t the only player on that team that sucked last season.

    Ya gotta love the Sandy Eggo fans. Peruse articles about the dolts n they never comment. Just spew hate on the RAIDAHS! I think someone got lil brother syndrome. What’s it like to be the only team in the AFC west wit nothin in the trophy case?

    Another short term move that doesn’t cost the Raiders anything but immediate cap space, which they have to spend anyway. McKenzie and Allen are likely on their way out of Oakland after 2014.

    I still think Shaub got dissed in Houston. The last 5 years he’s been pretty much good/great when healthy. He’s even lead the lead in passing yards before. He had one absolute dreadful year and then he was thrown in the garbage.

    I think he can have a bounce back season in Oakland. No matter what, he can’t do any worse than he did last season

    I agree. Schaub has done MUCH better than most NFL know he has.

    He has the 9th HIGHEST all time completion percentage in the history of the NFL right now at 64%.

    Right now he has the 13th HIGHEST QB rating all time in the history of the NFL.

    Right now, he is tied with Mr. Joe Montana and Peyton Manning for throwing the fewest INT’s as a percentage of his throws.

    Right now, these men have all thrown an INT on 2.6% of their career passes and that is the 15th best all time in the NFL.

    Yes, he had a BAD year last yr. But the stats above INCLUDE his bad yr last yr and he still is one of the better QB’s in the history of the league.

    I don’t think folks think of Mr. Montana as an INT machine… and yet it took Schaub’s bad season last yr to have his career INT % rise up to Mr. Montana’s has he was better than Joe going into last season…

    Last yr, Schaub threw an INT on 3.9% of his passes…

    Eli Manning threw an INT on 4.9% of his passes last season…

    I didn’t realize Trent Edwards was still in the NFL.

    No question, Schnob is better than both of the Mannings! Thank you Nation for putting us straight!

    Vick no draft picks, $5m.
    Schaub 1 pick, $11m.

    Vick >>Schaub

    Gotta hand it to ya, it takes alot to make the Jets look good. Oakland just did! Wow!

    Terrelle Pryor 3 starts vs. Broncos [2] and Chargers [1]: 58-89, 809 yards, 5 TD passes, 0 interceptions, 112.99 passer rating, 24 carries, 116 yards, 4.8 ave.. Pryor averaged 308 combined passing and rushing yards per game. Somebody is going to raid the Raiders of their most talented player and best QB. SMH…

    Will 6-10 this season save Big Reg’s job?
