During an appearance on NBCSN’s Pro Football Talk, Raiders running back Darren McFadden was asked if Matt Flynn is their starting quarterback.

“Yes, pretty much,” McFadden told Erik Kuselias, via ProFootballTalk.com.

“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.”

It’s been obvious since training camp started that Flynn was going to be the Raiders starter this season, but McFadden let the cat out of the bag a little early.

    I knew Matt was going to be the starter. QB has to be able read the plays and defenses and throw the ball accurately! Pryor cannot.
