    Terrelle Pryor

    I understand Carson has been a big reason why we've been able to compete offensively this year and I'm not one who's going to say it's time to start Pryor...
    but, why waste the talent Pryor has on the sideline?

    I wonder if any other team would do what the Raiders are doing this year with Pryor.

    Why not try him in some packages. I mean would today's game not be time to try, since we have our top 2 RB's out?

    I still feel like the coaching staff is unable to make the most out of the talent that the team has.

    Id rather lose seeing what Pryor can do. No reason to play Palmer anymore.

    Knock it off... Pryor isn't a QB and never will be. Pocket Qb's do not win in this league, all Cam Newton's RG3's and michael vicks are just for stats. Name me 1 scrambler that's won a SB, just 1

    I personally don't think it's time to start Pryor. Why leave him on the sideline, why not bring him in for a play or two?

    Your' wasting more talent with Palmer on the side line. If there is a silver lining in this garbage ass season for me, it's that if we can get some more talent around Palmer, and some more help with the play calling, Palmer could make the pro bowl next year.

    I'd be all for putting him or Leinart in now. What is the point of getting Palmer hurt in a blowout loss.

    This is perfectly fine but my point still stands...we arnt winning with Palmer so why not see what he can do good or bad?

    funny... i was about to make a thread with the exact same title a few mins ago LOL


    It's pretty evident this season is over.... as far as I am concerned it was over before the season started but at least there was hope before having stumbled onto the field


    Palmer is a decent QB.... but were never going to win a playoff game with him (perhaps never even break .500)


    At the very least we could see what we have in Pryor and draft accordingly moving forward

    Your wrong.... They made him change from a scrambler to a pocket QB and that's when they won the SB!

    An astounding number of people on this board, even though they have never seen Pryor play, don't think he can.

    In my humble opinion, I have not seen anything out of Pryor to suggest that he is an NFL-level quarterback. I would much rather have Tim Tebow than Pryor, because if you are gonna compare what each one did in College, Tebow absolutely blows him away. I think Palmer is improving at quarterback...most good quarterbacks have their best years after 10 years of experience (ex: Rich Gannon, Elway, even Manning). Anyway, I think Palmer at quarterback gives the Raiders the best chance to win, not just now, but even for the next 3-4 years. And if the offense can stay in the same system for a couple of years, not necessarily this one (let's hope), then all those interceptions we see where Palmer and his receivers are not on the same page in terms of adjusting on the fly, will turn into receptions and big plays.
