Before you and others said he'll eventually switch positions (based on virtually nothing). I was simply saying he, in his third year, once again has a shot at being an NFL QB. Simple!
anybody not blinded by hate sees the improvement from his first preseason game up until his last regular season game. I would list the things he has improved on, but that would require an opposition that's rational, which you're lacking on your part.To say he has shown improvement since the preseason is funny to me.
okay, now you're starting to sound rational. I'll share with you what I've saw him improve in:The guy hardly played, or got any reps, and he looked good in his last preseason game, hard to say he did or didn't improve.
-Pocket awareness (he only left the pocket when he felt the pressure)
-Looked to throw first (every single snap, he looked to throw first, before it was one read, panic and run. watch the film)
-Command of the huddle (Not one false start or ill-advised time out the entire game, players were lined up correctly)
-Leadership (goes without saying)
things he needs to work on:
-setting his feet into his throws, which should correct:
- ball trajectory
right now, he may be the most athletic QB in the league when you think of terms of speed, height, and strength. Just as strong as cam newton, just as fast as RG3. The way he shrugs off DE's with a stiff arm frightens me. It's a no brainer to do everything imaginable to get this guy up to speed, because there's nobody in the league like him
all the intangibles you want in a player are all there, I really don't see why more people arent getting behind him.
But you have no substance to back up why you feel this wayPryor has a great work ethic, and attitude, I just don't think he is the future of this franchise, or any franchise for that matter, not at QB.
let the guy get some reps, put a little investment in the guy and let him prove himself.
sitting back watching buckeye videos and repeating what other bitter old men on here say on a daily basis doesn't make that opinion any more valid.
Nobody knows what Pryor is gonna do or be in the NFL.
What I want is for the Raiders to give him a shot before we invest in another qb. We are rebuilding so the time is right.
Going 4-12 with Palmer is worse in my eyes then going "whatever record" rebuilding a team around a new young qb, Pryor or a rookie like G Smith.
The only reason I can't see a true pistol lasting more than 2-3 years, is the brutality, the physicality and abuse the QB will take for it. Baltimore was already sending a scout to shove Kaep on almost every run play. Some thoughts in the league circle is that they need to make .......drum roll...... new rules to protect the QB out of the pocket on an option. Either way, I don't like it for Pryor at this point, now if you bring in Tebow and let him do it, fine. But Pryor is just trying to get command of being an NFL QB, throwing another wrinkle, too much for the kid.
Eventually you'll see maybe half of the designed QB runs next year, I mean RG3 took a hell of a beating and can a franchise afford that a blind side hit, a hit low, sure you get 15 yards, but if that means 4-8 weeks without your franchise player, OC's will think twice.
Excellent point that I failed to mention... your back ups will need to have similar skill sets... and on this level, they aren't exactly a dime a dozen. Injury will surely be a factor going forward with these offenses.
Found this interesting
Think Raiders should bail on Terrelle Pryor? Colin Kaepernick had 0 TD's, 5 INT's, took 8 sacks, fumbled twice in first 4 preseason games.
Also..Looks like Streeter/Pryor are back in Oakland in the playbook or maybe this is something else.

Pryor needs to get to an Alex Smith level of consistency/accuracy/zip. If he at least gets to that level...combined with his athleticism...we might have something.
There is no shame in saying Pryor isnt in Kaep's league as a passer.....few guys are (I'm talking arm strength, zip, etc.)
Pryor has got to improve to adequate (for the NFL..) level of consistency in terms of zip/accuracy......will he? We'll find out in due time.
