Terelle is going to get to play tonight. Will they use the wildcat? Reports are that he is finally showing progress in camp.

The San Jose Mercury News said

"Pryor ended a recent kill-the-clock drill with a bootleg in which he swept right end. He looked part freight train, part sports car. At 6-foot-4, 233 pounds, he is nearly as big as Tim Tebow and has speed to rival Michael Vick.

Wow, that is quite a statement. But coaches say they are making sure Pryor is a capable passing QB, so they are working on his footwork. They also say that Carson and Matt has both played in the NFL and so far Pryor has not. Essentially he is a rookie and this is his first camp.

He has speed, size, and tools. He was a very sucessful college QB. Will he become a good NFL QB?

I can see Terelle Pryor being a potent weapon on 3rd and short- hopefully the Raiders will not just have him rot on the bench and use them in those type of situations where he can do some major damage.

So far I'm not very impressed by Pryor.

^^Yeah he definitely needs to learn not to take long sacks. Throw the ball away or just bit the bullet and take the shorter sack.

I'm not impressed with Pryor's play at all, but I'm very impressed with his attitude.. After the Dallas game, Pryor blamed himself for the loss, and said "I played like dog crap"...

Way to be accountable... If we all remember JaWalrus Russell, he'd have a 9-25 game and say "I thought I played well"...

Way to be accountable Terrelle, and here's hoping you continue to get better...

^^Yeah that's the right attitude- way to go Terrelle. He's got the tools and I hope he won't rot on the bench. Even if both QBs ahead of him are healthy, the Raiders need to get him in there in game situations to get some valuable experience.

In his 3rd rookie preseason game, all he did in one half is.............

Roll out of the pocket and run for 60 yards..........

Fight on a sack and scramble out of the pocket and run for a 17 yard TD....

Throw a long touchdown pass to Criner...........

Throw another long touchdown pass to Criner.......

Finish the game with a QB rating of 143...........

Excite the Raider Nation like no other QB in quite some time.

I wasn't able to catch all of yesterday's game due to me being at my Godson's bday party at a pizza joint, but I did manage to see both of Pryor's TD passes. He looked damn good! I really want to see what this guy can do with the 1st string team.
