Conspiracy Theorist Open Thread: Why do the Raiders work out "running" QBs?

There are reports out there about QBs that are being worked out by the Raiders, and it's weird to me that all of them (Vince Young, Seneca Wallace, Troy Smith, Tyler Thigpen) have a thing in common: they have (at least) fame of being running QBs (I say at least fame, because stats aren't very gracious to Smith and Wallace)

Given that, I wonder: Why is Oakland looking for that kind of QB? It's been my view that Matt Flynn looks the part for a "traditional" pocket QB, and that he'd be my favorite to keep the job. However, kicking the tires on some QBs that fit Terrelle Pryor's skills leaves me thinking if there's another view inside the organization.

What do you think?
