AND I THANK TERRELLE PRYOR FOR RECOGNIZING THAT!
and i also thank pryor for working hard staying in the books and seeking help from other sources to get better cause his chances were looking dim if it weren't for flynn's elbow tendidintis. well, good. it's settled and it's his job now!

Still not happy we have a running qb. But glad he put in the work and thinks about how he got where he is. Our playbook has to open up now. There is now film on Pryor's running. jags are focusing on it...so will the next team. Eventually a team will figure out the best way to contain him. Our o needs to be ever changing.

I hope he gets better at throwing. I just hope that the Raiders get serious about trying to win.

His legs should slow pass rush a bit, running game must improve and we MIGHT be on to something special, tuff to game plan for a guy that excapes the rush like he can...defence made strides second half, I see our secondary improving each game, just need our front 7 to hold up....im still on board for 8-8+ season

i gotta say, "pryor this and pryor that, and can pryor save the RAIDERS" and alllll pryor, and it's all about pryor! and no offense to anyone here cause even i've got caught up in the mix cause he is surprising so many and proving to so many that he is the man so far. but my opinion is that terrele pryor needed to have the spotlight to show that he is! but it's all going to have to change soon and he's gonna have to start realizing that he has a team. that it's not just a one man show. and that it consists of knowing where his (wr's) and (te's) are going to be exactly. sharing the runs with his (rb's). and being fair to his linemen to know where he's going to be so they can protect him better. one more game of spotlight, maybe two? then, he better start settling down and get serious! like i said, his legs will move naturally. but, try to stick to the plan! good luck pryor and watch how you slide or get tackled.

When your offensive line is not consistent, a pocket passer only will not work.

Ya, less than 2 designed qb runs a game please. Run Darren more. Run different plays. Keep up the tempo. Short passes, get Pryor going. There were some good things last week with a few pretty big boo boo's, but i like the kids talent, work ethic and apparently, his general awareness to thank Al Davis for the opportunity.

Usually the big boo boo's are easy to fix, it's the thought process and decision making that is a challenge.

well, we got what pryor is or what can do. and it's not so much about him being a pocket passer, but it's more about using the rest of his team to make things work,
terrelle pryor "it gets tiring, i had 13 runs and a couple of them were pretty long on top of that i'm trying to lose guys and find players down field to throw the ball. you just get winded and i've got to keep getting better".
me, me, me, me! see what i'm saying? maybe by holding himself in the pocket a lil more often he may make a play without getting so winded on just running. the only time he should have to run is if it's a designed play or if the (O-line) isn't holding up. it keps him healthy, he won't get so "winded", he'll know where his receivers are, he'll use dmac the way he's designed to use him and his (O-line) will know where to move when he is on the loose! he has all the ability and skill. we can't take that away from him. but he should share the ball if he wants to last. he's complaining and it was only one game!? gotta remember, this (O) was not designed for pryor. they're working on his ability's and yet because of what he's capable of, they want to "up the tempo" to the "kind of a new thing in football" according to d allen. so with that, they better start using the rest of the (O) to help pryor last. 15 more games to go!
