    Oakland Raiders giving Matt Leinart, Terrelle Pryor equal work in Wednesday's drills - Inside Bay Area



    Oakland Raiders giving Matt Leinart, Terrelle Pryor equal work in Wednesday's drills

    ALAMEDA -- Quarterbacks Matt Leinart and Terrelle Pryor were getting equal work during warm-ups and drills Wednesday as the Raiders began preparation for their regular-season finale against the San Diego Chargers.

    "Both of them got reps with the ones and I'll continue to monitor it as we go through the week and we'll make a decision at the end of the week, which way we're gonna go," said Dennis Allen. "It was evenly split"

    Both were expected to get work with the first team during the team session, which is closed to the media. Coach Dennis Allen said Monday both would get first-team reps and was open to the idea of starting Pryor.

    That came a day after a 17-6 loss to the Carolina Panthers, after which Allen said Pryor wasn't ready to be a backup.

    Five players were not on the field as the team session began -- Palmer, right guard Mike Brisiel (concussion), defensive tackle Richard Seymour (hamstring), strong safety Tyvon Branch (ankle/foot) and cornerback Phillip Adams (groin).

    Rookie third-round pick Tony Bergstrom was getting work with the first team at right guard in Brisiel's absence. It was Brisiel's second concussion of the season, and he must go through the NFL protocol in order to be cleared to play.

    Pro Bowl selections will be announced later Wednesday, with Sebastian Janikowski having the best and possibly only chance to be named to the team.

    Janikowski is 31 of 34 on field goal attempts with misses from 51, 61 and 64 yards. Cleveland's Phil Dawson is 28 of 29 and Baltimore's Justin Tucker is 29 of 31.

    Last season, when Janikowski made his first Pro Bowl, he was 31 of 35 on field goal attempts.

    Dark horses or potential alternate selections would be tight end Brandon Myers and fullback Marcel Reece. Myers has 75 receptions for 753 yards and four touchdowns, while Reece has 52 catches for 496 yards and one score. Reece also has 271 yards rushing on 59 carries.

    Raiders at Chargers Game Notes


    Raiders at Chargers Game Notes

    Raiders Media Relation
    THIS WEEK’S NOTABLE STORYLINES:

    The Raiders travel to face the San Diego Chargers Sunday, marking the Silver and Black’s final game of the 2012 season.

    K Sebastian Janikowski has been good on 31-of-34 field-goal attempts this season, hitting on 91.2 percent of his tries. Only 10 kickers in league history have hit at least 90.9 percent of their attempts during a season while perfect from 49 yards or less.

    WR Rod Streater enters the season finale with 35 receptions, which is tied for the fifth-most by a non-drafted rookie player in the NFL since 2000.
    Streater’s reception total ranks fifth among rookies in Raider history. Streater’s 35 catches are the most by a Raider rookie wide receiver since Tim Brown had 43 receptions in 1988.

    DT Tommy Kelly has made 79 consecutive starts, the longest active streak by a defensive tackle in the NFL. Kelly has not missed a game since sitting out nine contests due to a knee injury in 2007.

    The Raiders will be looking for their third straight victory at San Diego, which would match the Silver and Black’s longest winning streak at Qualcomm Stadium (2000-02).

    With 19 more pass attempts, the Raiders will break the 2002 team record of 619 attempts.

    QB Carson Palmer became just the second quarterback in Raider history to pass 4,000 yards in a single season with 4,018. Rich Gannon holds the Silver and Black’s all-time single-season record with 4,689 passing yards in 2002.

    RAIDERS CLOSE OUT SEASON AT SAN DIEGO: The Oakland Raid­ers wrap up the 2012 campaign at San Diego Sunday. The game will mark the second straight year that the Raiders have played the Chargers in a regular-season finale.

    THE SERIES: The Raiders and Chargers have squared off 105 times in the regular season dating back to the formation of the American Football League (AFL) in 1960. The Silver and Black holds a 57-46-2 advantage in the regular-season series, and won the lone playoff game between the two teams. The Chargers snapped a three-game Raider winning streak vs. San Diego in the 2011 season finale, and took a 22-14 decision in the 2012 season opener at O.co Coliseum on Sept. 10.

    LOOKING AHEAD: Below are the Raiders’ 2013 regular-season oppo­nents, according to the 2012 NFL Record and Fact Book:

    Home: Den., KC, SD, Jac., Ten., Phi., Was., AFC North (TBD)

    Away: Den., KC, SD, Hou., Ind., Dal., NYG, AFC East (TBD)

    AT HOME IN QUALCOMM: The Raiders will be aiming for a third straight win at San Diego, which would match the Silver and Black’s longest winning streak at Qualcomm Stadium (2000-02). Oakland posted a 28-13 win at San Diego in 2010 before recording a 24-17 victory last season.

    STREAKING STREATER: Rookie WR Rod Streater, who totaled just 19 catches as a senior at Temple, is among the most productive non-drafted rookie receivers in recent NFL history. Streater’s 35 catches this season is tied for fifth most among non-drafted rookies since 2000.

    ROD AMONG ROOKIE BESTS: WR Rod Streater’s season receiving to­tal ranks among the top rookie performances in Raiders franchise history. Streater’s 35 catches are the fifth most by a Raider rookie.

    THREE OVER 100: Three Oakland defenders have recorded 100-or-more tackles this season, marking the first time since 2006 that three Raiders have reached the century mark. In 2006, LB Kirk Morrison (127), LB Thomas Howard (110) and S Stuart Schweigert (107) all topped 100.

    KELLY’S CONSISTENCY: DT Tommy Kelly has made 79 straight starts since 2008, marking the most consecutive starts for a defensive tackle in the NFL. San Francisco 49ers DT Justin Smith was inactive for a Week 16 contest due to an elbow injury, snapping a streak of 185 straight starts that dated back to the 2001 season. Kelly has not missed a game since the 2007 season, when he sat out nine contests due to a knee injury. His streak ranks fifth among active defensive players in the NFL. He has started every game for Oakland since the 2008 season-opener against Denver on Sept. 8, 2008.

    AIR YARDS vs. YAC: The Raiders rank second in the NFL with 2,049 yards after the catch (YAC).

    GOLDEN BOOT: K Sebastian Janikowski has hit 31-of-34 field-goal at­tempts this season, hitting 91.2 percent of his tries. Only 11 kickers in league history have hit at least 90.6 percent of their attempts during a sea­son while perfect from 49 yards or less.

    LATE-SCORE LEADERS: K Sebastian Janikowski booted a 57-yard field goal as time expired in the first half vs. Kansas City on Dec. 16, giving the Raiders an NFL-high 82 points at the end of a half.

    PALMER CLIMBING THE CHARTS: QB Carson Palmer has produced one of one the most prolific passing seasons in Raider history. Palmer tied for second on the Raiders’ single-season list in attempts (565), third in completions (345), second in yards (4,018) and 14th in touchdowns (22).

    Raiders at Chargers Game Notes

    Hope you guys had a great Xmas or sub appropriate holiday!
    John Madden:They've got a ways to go. He was playing the game without a full deck. To be honest, they don’t have enough players. The cupboard was pretty bare. It would have been tough to do much more than what they did. If he’s going to do well, they gotta get a lot more … some teams need a quarterback or a running back, or a pass rusher … . The Raiders need a whole barrel of guys!

    I was just thinking that Streater could easily tie T Brown in catches if he just dropped 8 less balls. According to ESPN, he has been targeted 68 times. At least 8 of those had to have been balls he could have caught. Let's just hope he continues to improve.

    so let me get this straight...

    all year long, we all said Pryor should get #2 snaps and be the backup because Leinart is just a pathetic QB and if Palmer gets hurt, this offense is so screwed that they might as well go with Pryor because at least he brings some mobility where Leinart brings nothing but checkdowns .

    Yet, the coaching staff continued to keep Leinart as the #2 and had great confidence in him since he was "Greg Knapp's guy"

    now after 1 game, Pryor went from "not capable of being the back up QB" to splitting reps and potentially starting because Leinart is so terrible.

    Really makes you have confidence in this coaching staff.... EVERYONE knew how pathetic Leinart is and what he can do as a QB, yet it took the coaching staff putting Leinart in a game to figure it out

    Gives me great confidence in Dennis Allen as a head coach and his ability to evaluate talent

    Pryor may not be any better as a passer, but he would have benefited much more getting #2 snaps in practice, it would have saved the Raiders an extra game day roster spot by having Pryor #2 and having him available in a package, and he at least brings the running threat from the QB position

    if Leinart starts over Pryor, I'm done with Dennis Allen

    the Raiders have nothing to play for and need to at least see what Pryor can do in a real game

    In hindsight.....yea

    Pryor needed those reps.

    But even Pryor said yesterday, Matt Leinart got MOST of the reps yesterday. Pryor just got a couple, saying "Im happy though because thats more than I use to get"

    So yea...Pryor's been only getting scout team reps for the most part all year. Coaches must feel he's not ready.

    If Pryor does play, and he somehow manages to do good... this coaching staff might be in deep doo doo at least with the fan base. I cant really fault them for making Leinart the back up QB but man...I hope he was a hell of a lot better in practice than in that last game because it looked like Leinart couldnt throw the ball through a wet sheet of paper. I am losing faith in the decision making of this staff I am trying to be patient though.

    Here's my guess. Allen announces Leinart the starter, Pryor to play also, redzone and different situations.
    Then well see Pryor play maybe 8 to 10 snaps.

    They don't feel he's ready. That's been their stance since preseason.

    Our son and I were just discussing Streator on Christmas eve, both of us opining that he's a keeper.

    Anybody remember DHBs rookie year?
    9 catches for 124 yards.

    Kind of shows just how much of a bargain Streater is along with how much of a waste DHB is.

    Streater- 35 catches, 507 yards and 3 TDs with one more game to play.

    Why not bench DHB and start Streater?

    Haven't they? I didn't even notice DHB until late in the game.

    What a bunch of idiots we have as coaches.

    So they don't feel he's ready after having had him for the entire off-season, preseason, and into week 16? So what happens if Leinart gets injured on the second play of the game? How ready does this coaching staff feel he will be when he has to play all 4 quarters?

    Great preparedness, guys. It's their job to get him at least ready enough to play a full game or two if the need arises, but they choose to give him more than 10% of snaps in practice in week 16?

    Man, I hate these incompetent idiots.
