End 3rd qtr: Raiders 17, Lions 13

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Saturday, August 25th, 2012 at 6:31 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Shaun Hill threw a 7-yard pass to Brandon Pettigrew to cap a 72-yard, 10-play drive kept alive by an Oakland penalty, and Terrelle Pryor countered with runs of 59 and 17 yards (for a touchdown) with 30 seconds left in the quarter.

A roughing the passer flag against Tommy Kelly against Hill negated what would have been a drive-killing interception by Matt Giordano on a sideline pass.

Carson Palmer took the rest of the day off after playing the first half, giving way to Pryor. Oakland’s second team defense was in the game by the second series of the third quarter. Pryor, giving a glimpse of his stunning speed and athletic skill, accounted for 76 of the 77-yard drive with his two runs.

On the touchdown, Pryor escaped what appeared to be a sure sack and racked to the right pylon, getting a block from Owen Schmitt to barely make it in.

    Debo,

    Great call on the rise of Vince Young, after one OK half.

    Throwing picks against scrubs, as usual.
    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    “rise of Vince Young”?? Not quite sure what you’re talking about, but I like the guy. Looks to me like the Buffalo O has been overwhelmed all preseason. I’d say VY has looked better than Fitz so far though. By the way, since you have such an interest in the “business side” of the NFL, any issues with Fitzpatrick’s contract?

    =============================

    haters gonna hate.

    Raider Nation now…RAIDER NATION FOREVER!

    Should have scored another td to rub it in to schwartz for calling time outs.

    ========

    Dennis Allen doesn’t do crap like that. It’ll be fun to watch Lions go at the Niners in week 3 of regular season….iit’ll be Civil War.

    who’d ever thought that would be a rivalry?

    I just drafted TP #1 overall in my fantasy league.

    Pryor just locked down a first-ballot HOF ticket.

    ===========

    He had a good showing that he can build on. Maybe he has a future.

    I know there are a lot of future trolls out here. But after multiple losing seasons fraud Raider fans are everywhere.

    McClain didn’t make one play in the first half, and in the second quarter weakly pursued the 2nd string QB twice and failed to make the play.

    Why is everyone, staff and Corky, claiming the guy has a great football mind. I hate it when Corky imparts false information to us.

    McClain was normally out of place, lackadaisical, 7-8 lbs overweight in the lower body and most importantly, shouldn’t be in the NFL.

    Hopefully the State of Alabama will sentence McClain to at least 6 months and get rid of him for us, which may void his outrageous contract.

    ****************************

    Lions had 7 carries for 7 yards in the first half.

    The MLB usually gets a lot of credit for that.
    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    In this case we can credit can credit Wheeler and Houston.

    McClain was rarely anywhere near the ball. We really need to get over him. It’s done.

    If CP3 goes down this season Pryor will start before Lienart.

    Pryor is hard to stop and after playing the entire 4 pre-season game will have earned his chance.

    The Pryor is the Raiders 12 man in a running capacity which will be difficult or mostly impossible for the opposition to deal with, considering his passing ability which get better by the minute.

    Way better than Tebow, with those lame and lopsided left handed throws.

  • blackandsilverside

    If McClain is convicted of a crime most likely that will void his contract. Jerome Boyd is better than McClain.

    Anything we have to do to release him, we should. However, the Raiders will hang on to him to avoid the humiliation of admitting they made a big time mistake.
