Don’t think this is necessarily breaking news, more like confirming what you already should have known.

Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden was on NBCSN’s Pro Football Talk and when asked if Matt Flynn would be the starter for the team this season, McFadden was pretty straightforward and honest.

“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.”
