#1-palmer gets injured, "#2"-leinart steps in, "that other (qb)"-pryor has a snap for 5yds and out!
this is what happens when your coach is trying to win through out with his starting (QB) so he could look good. like i say, good enough, i understand, he is trying to keep his job. if mckenzie pretty much assured d allen his job, then START PRACTICING YOUR BACKUP (QB's)! allen should have started giving more playing time for leinart as well as t pryor since last week at least! we could've had more prepared backups!
t pryor had one pass reception for 19yds. i would say go ahead and use him as a (wr) but we are already pretty full at that position. why did they put him in as a (wr)? probably because the fans want to see him.(again), d allen said, you want to see pryor? there you go! it appears d allen does not trust t pryor as a (qb)and it also appears as though terrelle pryor will most likely not be back next season.
next week against the chargers? you can bet leinart will start if palmer cannot go. And pryor? he'll probably see one snap again.

You never want to see your starting QB go down, however, from an evaluation standpoint going into next season, it was ideal. They made the right decision to put Leinhart into the game and he showed that he is not a capable back-up. It was not so much the INT before halftime (you can blame that on lack of reps and playing time), it was Leinhart's inability to throw the ball down field. He does not have the confidence (or arm strength) and settles to often for the dump off. They should be looking for a veteran QB for next season. Ideal situation in the sense that the Raiders can claim Palmer is still sore for next week and Pryor can start the season finale and the team can get a decent read on his progress as the #2 QB for next year.
