i believe g olson likes t pryor. problem here was mainly d allen and and probably mckenzie that had to do with pryor getting his opportunity. and of course, pryor himself has fault cause he's taken a lil longer to develop than he should have. hard work pays off and pryor has studied hard. so, we're here. everything that was set up for flynn has been put on hold. pryor is going to have to learn flynn's plays and they are going to have to add just a few more to pryor's style of play. i'm excited to see pryor play cause i always wanted a (qb) with the likes of a steve young, randall cunningham, even john elway, from way back then. i liked their ability to scramble for yds. problem is, i started to see injury waiting to happen. and it started to happen to those (qb's) when they started to scramble and take hard hits on the run. then m vick perfected the run and also perfected the "injury waiting to happen". and now rg3 is the perfect example for that. even he is trying to be a passer first today. right now you have the kaepernicks and the r wilsons that are perfecting that style. AND? to me? if terrelle pryor becomes a (qb) first and a scrambler as needed? i will be happy with his style 100 percent. but be a passer first. try to complete your passes first unless it is a developed run play. but be a passer first. your legs will automatically move as needed. concentrate on completing your passes forget the run and you will be a great (qb) i say. i gotta say, that is what worries g olson as well. "how long will he last"! it makes no sence having a passing running scrambling (qb) if he can't finish the season. it's a setback! just as rg3. anyways, i accept t pryor as a starter. GO RAIDERS! and good luck to pryor and his preseason starting debut!
RAIDERS 2013!!!!

Sounds to me like Pryor is making the biggest positive difference at the QB position so it sounds like he should be the starter.

Ya, no more diamond triple option crap unless its goal line. It's like telling the defense "we are running all slants".

Nice to see Pryor win the job in a true open competition, as McKenzie and Allen have been professing. Same as with McGloin over Wilson, (happy to have him back on the practise roster tho), and Robinson over Bass (altho I liked the way Bass flashed on occasion). Rewarding the guys who deserve to be rewarded. I like it.
