The Raiders are going to have scoring problems this season but two punters?

Oakland cut its roster to 53 players Saturday. But once the team gets done picking up players perhaps many off waivers from other teams it won't look like it does now. So Raiders fans kicking themselves over the decision to keep both punters Chris Kluwe and Marquette King can relax a little bit.

The decision to keep four quarterbacks who struggled in offseason workouts and finished the preseason with ratings lower than 75? Now that's a head-scratcher. It looks as though Terrelle Pryor may have beaten out Matt Flynn for the starting job (coach Dennis Allen isn't saying yet) and the Raiders decided to also keep Matt McGloin and fourth-round pick Tyler Wilson.

McGloin an undrafted free agent out of Penn State won the third-string snaps at training camp over Wilson and Wilson didn't even play in the second and third preseason games. But general manager Reggie McKenzie wasn't ready to cut Wilson.

McKenzie and Allen will not be available for comment until after Monday's practice.

They will be asked why a team so desperate for a pass rush cut both 13th-year veteran Andre Carter and seventh-round pick David Bass. Carter a Cal alum has 78 1/2 career sacks and was one of the team leaders but at 34 may have lost his burst. Bass had a fumble-forcing sack that resulted in a touchdown in the preseason.
