Raiders confirm: Pryor signs

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Thursday, August 25th, 2011 at 11:04 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The following message arrived from the Raiders via Twitter at 11 p.m.:

QB Terrelle Pryor signs his contract. He will be on the field in Napa tomorrow morning.

Here’s a link. Even has Pryor signing his contract, assuming it’s not a prop or a Saints-Raiders press release.

It was also announced on the Raiders Web site.

Amazing how that worked out. Pryor signs at a point right when camp is breaking up, allowing Camp Hue to focus on the team without a sideshow. When Pryor really gets cranking in practice so the coaching staff can see what he’s got, practice will be closed to the media.

Good call, actually. In terms of P.R. strategy and media perception, the best and most shrewd Raider camp I can remember . . .

    Have to say that after watching the last game for the 4th time and strictly focusing on Groves, he is not nearly the stiff I thought he was. When he was playing with the 2nd team guys, it was pretty ugly all the way around. But he only missed one play, imo, when he was in there with the ones.

    Now I can tell you FOR SURE that our dime defense (some want to call it a big nickle) was getting ran all over. I fail to understand why we go with that formation when other teams do not have 4 WRs on the field. SF literally had their base O on the field, with a TE and FB and we subbed in that ridiculous D.

    That D gets ran on at will!
    ***************
    That big nickel package was created to get MM34 on the field. Boyd is no MM34!

    That package works well against SD with Mitchell in, other than that – its not great.

    Preseason!

    Blackout huh??

    That’s cold-blooded by the NFL for blacking out preseason games.

    Chris Carter, former Buckeye alum, said this morning that the only things Terrell Pryor does better than Tim Tebow is run in a straight line.

    ++++++++++

    God, what a tool.

    Pryor has experience taking snaps under center and no gigantic windup in his throwing motion.

    Especially when it is a nationally televised game, AND there are NO other games on TV. Piss on local advertising dollars right.

    GMoms and trial and error.

    I guess I could say Moms b/c she was a single mom raising 2 kids and she didn’t get home from work until 6 or so. That factor got me and my sister in the kitchen for that trial and error, lol.

    Ted,

    Wasn’t the big nickle package thrown on us when Trevor Scott got hurt?

    I remember Wimbley, Scott, and McClain being on the field at the same time in our nickle packages. Scott and Wimbley would line up next to each other and rush the passer.

    Ima have to check out an old game prior to the Pitts game and review that.

    Raiders official twitter account just now:

    RAIDERS OAKLAND RAIDERS
    The Oakland Raiders have signed CB Lito Shepherd who will join his new teammates on the field in Napa this morning.

    He’s still alive? Who knew?

    Saw that too…had that feeling…

  • SilverNBlackPA

    So the CB depth chart is gonna look like this?

    Routt
    CJ37
    Sheppard
    Moore
    Ware
    Chekwa

    WMcFadden gets the axe

    Does that sound about right?

  • J Hill

    Big Ted,

    The big nickle is basically a man defense that matches Mitchell or Boyd up with a TE like Gates or Davis. They certainly have a better chance in coverage than any of our LBs, but we tend to use that package on 1st and 2nd down. That formation is so easy to run on with McClain as the only LB on the field. You constantly see the other QB audible into runs and they ALWAYS get a minimum of 7 or 8 yds.

  • http://www.tedhendricks.com/Ted_vs_Montana.jpg BigTed707

    Lit Shepard?
    *Price is Right Sound* Woh-Woh!
    Oh well, he can Backup CJ37.

    C’mon Al get us a LB with a Nose for the Ball! I thought picking up big fast guys was your thing – You’d think we’d be sick with linebackers!

  • The Oracle

    Chris Carter’s numbers as a rookie almost mirror that of DHB, yet he loved to mock the kid and pick. Carter’s first two years were wastes, but he never mentions that.

  • J Hill

    With Chris Johnson (undisclosed) sidelined, the Raiders are looking for some depth. Sheppard was brutal for the Vikings last season and has drawn scant interest on the open market. He brings starting experience to a team that has youngsters DeMarcus Van Dyke and Walter McFadden looking at significant roles. Aug 26 – 12:51 PMSource: Adam Caplan on Twitter

    *************
    That may be, but I was referring to MM34 out there to cover the TE as a LB/NB.

    It’s to cover Gates, not stop the run.

    Brian the Genital, it’s pretty funny how irritated and worked up you get when I get props.

    I know your mom said you had the build of an NFL corner of WR instead of a chick to make you feel better, but that’s no reason to be so sensitive and insecure.

    Get a massage and a mani/pedi if it’ll calm your hormones, puss.

    Brahs you know where to find me, I’m poolside or manning the Reggae Party Boat. These days I’m keeping 3 or 4 Magnums in my headband or sock, so I’m easy to spot.

    This weekend is going to be TIGHT, I’ve got the UFC fight streaming live on the cruise, fresh Norwegian shrimp cocktails and the Peruvian Women’s Tanning Team crashing in the penthouse.

    DON’T DO ROIDS JUST AVOID THE NOID

    Boyd can’t play it as well as MM34.

  • realtruraider

    Hey Ya’ll why don’t ya head over to ESPN SPORTSNATION and vote for a couple of are boys Terrell Proyor and Jacoby Ford, I think the Jacoby Ford one is for the fastest player in Madden.

  • RaiderRockstar

    LA to TheBay = one hand wrapped around a henny & coke, the other around Jeff Garcia ???

  • J Hill

    Yeah, but if Wimbley and Scott are on the field at the same time, who was MM34 in for?

    Scott Kelly Seymour Wimbley

    McClain MM34

    CJ37 Routt Huff Branch

    ????

    Are Houston and ShoNasty really going to come off the field on 3rd downs this year???

    Those 2 guys are and should be ever down players.

  • The Oracle

    Hello Sheppard, goodbye W. Mcfadden.

  • http://www.tedhendricks.com/Ted_vs_Montana.jpg BigTed707

    You only got 10 guys listed there J-Hill.

    Gotta have:

    Scott Seymour Henderson Shonasty

    MM34 McClain Wimbley

    Cj37 Routt Huff Branch

    Let MM34 cover the TE.
