MATT MCGLOIN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Why Matt McGloin gives Raiders a little more than depth at QB position

Oakland Raiders quarterback Matt McGloin doesn’t believe in following the script. Sure, the 24-year-old backup quarterback follows orders, but scripts, he’ll leave those for others. McGloin, the undrafted quarterback who beat out 2013 fourth-round pick Tyler Wilson for a roster spot a year ago, instead writes his own destiny. To be crystal clear: McGloin is the furthest thing...

What was good and bad about QB Matt McGloin’s 4th quarter preseason comebacks?

In each of the Raiders first 2 preseason games, third string QB Matt McGloin has led 4th quarter comebacks. Against the Vikings, he fell just short when his Hail Mary pass fell to the ground. Against the Lions, he was successful when his 19 yard TD pass was caught by WR Brice Butler. Of course, anytime your team gets a game winning drive from a back-up QB, it is a good thing. We...

Are the Raiders giving Matt McGloin a fair shot?

McGloin. McMoxie. McLovin’. Call him what you want, but the Oakland Raiders have one of the best third string quarterbacks in the league. Replacing an injured Terrelle Pryor in week 11 last year, Matt McGloin’s first pass against Matt Schaub’s Texans was a five-yard touchdown strike to Denarius Moore. There was no wild scrambling or option-reads. Instead, there were back shoulder...

3rd-string QB Matt McGloin leads Raiders to win over Lions

In the preseason, try and try again, and good things will happen. The Raiders' first-team defense looked terrible early Friday night for the second straight preseason game, and the offense wasn't a lot better. But head coach Dennis Allen left in the starters for a while, and first-round pick Khalil Mack stayed in the game for three quarters, until he beat a third-team tackle...

Oakland Raiders: QB evaluation after preseason week 1

The Oakland Raiders only put points on the board Friday on one occasion, which brings major QB concerns to mind. Especially because the touchdown that made up all six of Oakland’s points came from Matt McGloin, who at this point is the third-string QB. As I mentioned in my last article, the Raiders’ run game is one thing fans can be comfortable with but is Matt Schaub at starting...

Raiders coach: ‘Disappointed in the way that we played’

The Oakland Raiders opened the preseason with a 10-6 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Friday night. Raiders coach Dennis Allen wasn’t happy with the way his team played. “Disappointed in the way that we played,” he said. “I thought we’d come out and be sharper than that and execute better than that. The penalties really were the big story of the game.” “Offensively...

Is Matt McGloin “your guy” if the Super Bowl is at stake?

The Oakland Raiders have not yet found their franchise quarterback. Or have they? At least two players on the team appear to think so. ESPN.com is doing a series of posts reflecting the results of player polls conducted during the season. The other day I wrote about the fact that head coach Dennis Allen received votes from the Raiders locker room as the head coach players would most...

WATCH: QB Matt McGloin's open letter to the NFL

Yeah… it’s safe to say that the Oakland Raider’s starting quarterback, Matt McGloin, has a huge chip on his shoulder.  The quarterback his teammates endearingly call McLovin,‘ plays the game of football pissed off.  Matt not only displayed some serious moxie as he lead the Raiders to a 28-23 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday, but he also shows it in this letter he wrote...

Raiders are considering starting QB Matt McGloin

Matt Flynn was not good this week, and his coach did not hold back to let everyone know: “Look,” he said, exasperation leaking into his usual monotone, “Matt didn’t play well, and we’ve gotta move on. We’ve got to get better than that.” And, when asked if Pryor’s concussion still prevented him from playing against […]
