We need to start Pryor this week. If we don't then it means there are no plans for him in the future of this organization.

First, I don't think lienhart was the problem, he looked decent when the right plays were called. our playing lost that game. As far,as pryor goes, he must no be getting it done in practice. I think the play calling needs fixing to give lienhart a fair assesment. That said, I don't think anyone is ubder the guise that lienhart will be a,starter. So, we need a qb that has starting potential. Give that qb a season or two behind palmer. Palmer is a good qb, but age is a factor. I don't feel like pryor has shown leadership skills, thats my guess why they aren't starting him. The look on his face as he went into the tunnel, looked like a baby not getting his way. The rest of the guys looked professional. Didn't give me a good vibe...but who knows.

no sense of starting leinart unless it's just for trying to win the game for allen himself. i mean,leinart won't win the game either? he will be better at it than pryor but if there is no plans for leinart next season then just let pryor start and finish. to tell you the truth, as long as d allen is here, there is no plans for terrelle pryor!

rantsports ask's "will carson palmer retire?"
i say no! palmer looks tired and shows little expression of frustration, kind of a quiet guy but very concentrated in his game. NO!, palmer is not ready to retire. and i believe he will be back next season unless we get a new (O-cordinator) that straight out say's "i want a new (qb)! but then, palmer would just move on and be a starter elsewhere.

I think McKenzie and Allen are still playing the "Clean House" game and are working towards ridding Al Davis's guys and bringing in their own. Allen already seems interested in Manti Te'o to replace Rolando McClain. If we draft a QB at all, then I don't look for Pryor to be here next year. Look at our first rounders the last 10 years
2002: Buchannon, Harris Both gone
2003: Asomugha (3x pro bowler), Brayton both gone
2004: Gallery gone
2005: Traded for R Moss, Washington Both gone
2006: Huff
2007: JBust Gone
2008: McFadden
2009: DHB
2010: McClain
2011: Traded for Seymour (2x Pro Bowler)
2012: Traded for Palmer

Seems like all the guys that were supposed to be corner stones from what I shamefully call "The losing Era" are either gone or on the verge of being gone due to age or lack of performance.

I'm not incline to take DA's assessment on pryor when he's been a huge part of the problem all year, yet f still giving a chance week in-week out. & thats coming from a DA supporter! I don't want to hear about his mechanics cuz big ben's mechanics aren't perfect yet he's successful. He may never be a manning or brady, butt the only true way to evaluate him is put his ass under fire. At this point, really wut other option do we have

Big Ben got the Steelers what they wanted and that was the championship TWICE. E Manning has done the same. This year, with the Raiders out of it, I'm pulling for the Texans, but it looks like P manning will be the first starting QB to win it all twice with 2 different teams

I always go wit the underdog. So on that note, idk who going for. 1 things for sure, I will be hoping to see some improvement in are last game of a dreadful season. Statistically both QB & WRs all performed well this year & we all know both would've done even better with a run game. I'm not as worried about the off as much as the def. We'll get (can't spell his name lol!)manti tayo. That should give us 1 of the best lber corp in the league & Phillip Adams and Ross both earned the right too fight for a roster spot next year. Jerky & Seymour both should be gon so besides timer Tyvon Branch & maybe Huff we may be looking at a total overhaul. Just hope RM starts cutting in the right spot cuz this season was more a coaching failure than the players.

I think Pryor played well. The rest of the players all looked like they each regressed other than Mcfadden. Receivers couldn't catch, life couldn't open no holes & I haven't seen 1 DB stop anybody this year. Dont know wut to expect next year, but Pryor made his case that DA & RM ought to give him a real look next year.
