Raiders wake up Matt McGloin is bad; 1-4 in first 5 starts, Pryor is 3-5

How is Matt McGloin still the Raiders’ starting quarterback after he threw four interceptions, lost a fumble and seemed to force throws when he drifted in the pocket in the Raiders’ record-breaking 56-31 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday?

McGloin’s record as a starter is now 1-4. Terrelle Pryor is 3-5

The only thing helping McGloin is the fact that he has an NFL-high 15 completions of at least 25 yards. The QB with the second-highest number of such throws in that time frame? Some dude in the Arizona desert named Carson Palmer, with 13.

Terrelle Pryor is a game changer though, I cannot go back to the Pittsburgh game enough.  That run to start the game was huge, while McGloin has been able to capture a few big plays, he is not winning.  What is more important right now?
