    Does Dennis Allen have something against Pryor?

    He seems to have something against Pryor, he doesn't seem to want to put him in the game at all.it seems like he almost resents having the calls for Pryor to be put in the game. I'm betting he names matt as the starter this week with Palmer being out with injury.

    Put it this way: right now, Pryor is as good an NFL QB as DA is a Head Coach.

    Both are in way over their respective heads.

    I think either him or knapp have made it personal. No CP3 why consider a washed up waste of space Matty L?

    Truthfully from what I am told he is not impressed with his progress. He sees he is working hard but he does not feel he is ready. That being said there is a good chance Pryor will either start or get play time if Leinart ends up starting and falters again.

    It's real simple. Carson will be the starter next season. Leinart on the other hand is no lock as a backup. Pryor is still young enough and raw enough to hold the clipboard and learn the game from the sidelines. He's not rotting away on the bench and if he is showing up in practice, his time will come. A kid like Pryor who was a star in high school and college needs to be humbled before he gets his chance, plain and simple. My prediction is he'll still be the 3rd string QB next season and Leinart will be gone. I have nothing against Pryor, I like his potential. I just think like with a young D.A., people have to be patient.

    We have to see what we have in Leinart before we start messing around with TP. Any coach would do the same thing.

    I think when RM made it known he would like to evaluate Pryor in a game that might be exactly what happened. Either Knapp or DA decided that it was knock on their evauation skills and come hell or highwater they weren't going to do it.

    If Pryor had the talent to start in the NFL he would have at least sniffed the field by this time. Fact is, that his college football career was a mirage where he never developed the passing skills or ability to read defenses that is necessary to be successful in the NFL.

    So you're saying with all the film and time Knapp spent with Leinart at Houston he still doesn't know what he has in him...

    His talent evualation may be worse than we thought!

    *edit I think Palmer should be our starter next year, but he's out...what do we have to lose?

    And from what I am 'told' Dennis Allen doesn't know how to coach a football team. Works both ways I guess..

    I wonder if he has something against not just Pryor but the whole team cause they suck under his coaching hires and under his direction. I don't trust any of these coaches with talent evaluation

    TP has been playing footall since he age of 6, number 1 recruit coming out of high school.. I hardly believe he cant' play football in the NFL.. He looked pretty good in the 3rd preseason game.. Dennis and Staff are a bunch of Idiots... This team is lost without a real head coach....

    Pryors confidence which would be the end of the road for him. Maybe DA has nothing against him except he thinks he's not ready so he doesn't want to see him lose his confidence from a ba game.

    Leinart is way worse than I remembered. He threw numerous terrible balls versus Carolina and showed no heart at all. He has no arm and is able to throw just screen pass.
    Pryor can't be worse then him.
    We need to start Pryor.
