Mandatory Credit: Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY SportsAfter the Oakland Raiders’ loss on Sunday, Coach Dennis Allen said that quarterback Matt Flynn struggled to see the field. The fill-in QB was asked about this comment and gave a totally convoluted answer.

"Um, I don’t know, I felt like I was, you know, seeing things fairly ... there were a couple times on play actions I was. There was big jumble on line of scrimmage, I had a hard time making sure there was guys open, so I didn’t want to force it and make any blind throws. I didn’t think I ... I wasn’t, I just didn’t make the plays."

This sounds like the long way to say, “Yeah, I didn’t see the field.”

Flynn had to play in Terrelle Pryor’s place because he was still experiencing concussion-like symptoms on Saturday night. Pryor had asked for a visor on his helmet because he had a sensitivity to light. So, the team wisely chose to sit him.

He’ll likely play next weekend, so Flynn will have a lot of time to work on reading the field.
