Edit: this really is a "i like skittles" vs a "i like m&ms" type of discussion...but instead of 2 things that are really good it is about 2 things that are really lousy like arguing if liver or anchovies is better.
On top of that you have a 3 way split in preferences of the type of QB not only that we want but that this team needs. Some like the prototypical, plain, safe consistency of an "M&M" like Flynn. The recent success of other "skittles" around the league has more people than normal liking the more athletic, flashier, wider variety of a "skittle" like Pryor. Then you have the majority of fans who really dont care, candy is candy and give me the one that gets the job done.
Whats often misunderstood in these debates are the terms. I think Jason Campbell was better for this football team than Palmer was but that doesnt mean i think Campbell was better than Palmer. Many people want Pryor but that doesnt mean they think Pryor is better than Flynn or even the long term answer. Its relative to what we have now. Give me a better offensive line and a solid running game, im probably completely backing Flynn. Take those two things away and i can see where Pryor would be more beneficial. I think if you look at most fans, most of us are in that box and we dont care, we just want the guy who has the best chance to move the chains and put points on the board. The reality is, Flynn, Pryor, McGloin, Wilson, Gannon, Plunkett, etc....etc....... any QB is going to struggle to see any success with this current football team.
At this point, i dont care who the QB is, i just hope they all make it through the season healthy. Both Skittles and M&Ms taste like **** when they've been thrown on the asphalt and smashed into the ground.
I couldn't help but chuckle but you guys remember SF Raider fan? If TP gets the start for the season, you know he'll be getting the last laugh. I never agreed on his analysis of Pryor or the game in general but you know he'd be rubbingt in that TP is getting the start.
And absolutely no one would care because we'd still lose the football game.
Frozen bite-sized Snickers FTW! Does that make me a Pryor or Flynn fan?
Oh wait I guess snickers would make me not a DIVA anymore so I guess your right. Carry on.

On Friday, August 23rd, against the Chicago Bears, Pryor had one of his best games as a professional.
Pryor ignited the home crowd with his unique skill-set that allowed him to scramble away from trouble.
His passes were accurate with a lot of velocity behind them.
His decisions were, to me, some of the best I have seen him make.
They say that the “cream rises to the top,” well Pryor is definitely rising.
