Report: Matt McGloin could keep Raiders QB job if he plays well
So much for Terrelle Pryor as the Raiders quarterback of the future.
If you thought the Raiders were most definitely looking at Terrelle Pryor as the quarterback of the future, two reports might cause you to rethink that notion.
Instead, there's word that if Matt McGloin, who will start vs. the Texans because of Pryor's injured knee, plays well on Sunday, the team could keep him as the starting quarterback.
The reports are a bit surprising, because Pryor was better than many of us expected earlier this season. But if you look at his stat line (58.9 completion percentage, five touchdowns vs. 10 interceptions, a quarterback rating of 69.0), you could see why Oakland might feel it still needs to find a franchise quarterback.
It's true Pryor is not cemented as Raiders QB of the future in the same way as Dennis Allen not cemented as coach or Reggie McKenzie as GM— Jerry McDonald (@Jerrymcd) November 17, 2013
But the Chronicle also writes that if McGloin doesn't perform well Sunday, the starting job would revert back to Pryor when he's healthy enough to return.
