Raiders fans have been looking for quality QB play for about a decade.


The Raiders have moved on to their next “franchise” quarterback (Matt Flynn). It’s been a long search since 2002 NFL MVP Rich Gannon played his last game in Oakland early in the 2004 season, and the results haven’t been pretty.

Only one of the 15 quarterbacks the Raiders have used the last nine years posted a winning record as a starter. A look at how they have fared:
