You have to be really talented to have a flaw that can cripple a football team, but still be considered for the starting quarterback job.
Raiders quarterback Matt Flynn is smart, accurate, and gutsy. Those intangibles together don’t out weight the fact that Flynn reportedly can’t throw the football beyond 25 yards.
According to Vic Tafur, the Raiders have accepted Flynn limitations in the downfield passing game.
The Raiders seem content to ride Darren McFadden, and spread the ball around with Flynn’s accuracy and precise decision-making.
