Is McGloin the future?

I know this site has seen the QB discussion for the Raiders rage on for this entire season. I will hold my hands up as bring a Pryor fan in the early games. He seemed to possess the requisite skills to recognise a defense, albeit with simple concepts thrown in, such as the zone-read and option plays, but he did seem to have improved. However, after the Chiefs fiasco, I now am of the opinion that Pryor will never be able to perform as a QB in this league. His athleticism is without question, but I don't think he has developed mentally enough to be a productive QB.

However, McGloin. I've watched all his tapes, and as before, I see a QB with good vision, with a much better arm than you would expect, like he has one of the fastest deliveries I think I've ever seen, and he shows the character and the work ethic that you want to see in a QB. My other thinking was that Allen and McKenzie have repeatedly said, after season's end, that they don't know if the QB of the future is on the roster. Previously, I've taken that as they're not sufficiently impressed with McGloin, however, with all these smokescreens being thrown around, I'm starting to come to the opinion that that was just an early, early smokescreen. For example, nearly all QBs that have been released/dropped/replaced have had their coaches in weeks before their removal from the #1 position, have always been that of support. Cassell had Leslie Frazier's full confidence, as did Freeman have Schiano's before his release.

I am not ruling out drafting a QB in the lower rounds, I would love to see Garoppolo/Fales/Shaw/Mettenburger/McCarron come to Oakland, but not before the mid 4th round, perhaps even later. Anyway, just my musings, and in case we've all forgotten, here's McGloin in his first NFL start against the Texans. :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgJRY2TfaPM
