Pryor ready to roll when called upon

Second-year quarterback Terrelle Pryor spoke at length Wednesday about what life is like sitting behind Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart, how he spends his time and how much progress he has made since training camp.
One thing he doesn't do is look at the rapid ascension of 49ers second-year quarterback Colin Kaepernick and wonder what if?
"I don’t judge myself by other people," Pryor said. "What he does is what he does. I’m just confident I could go in and make some plays as much as I can. If God gives me the blessing to do that, I look forward to it. But if not, I’ll roll on. I’ll be OK. I’ll be back for next year."
Coach Dennis Allen said Monday that he and his coaches have "discussed" the prospect of playing Pryor in some capacity this season.
Allen said Wednesday that there's a possibility of Pryor being active Sunday against the Cleveland Browns as the No. 3 quarterback. Pryor hasn't been active for any of Oakland's first 11 games.
Pryor has little chance of playing in a game if he's the No. 3 quarterback. Yet, at some point Allen said he wants to get a look at Pryor.
"There will be a time where we’ve got to look at him and see what he can do," Allen said.
Especially if the Raiders have any intention of moving on from Palmer anytime in the next two seasons. Palmer is signed through 2016, Pryor is under contract through 2014.
It's on thing to see Pryor play in an exhibition game, it's quite another to see him play against, say, the Denver Broncos in a game that counts in the standings and has huge playoff implications for the Broncos.
To that end, Pryor said he has the playbook down pat and feels as if he is ready to turn it loose in a game.
"It’s kind of like picking an opponent on paper," Pryor said. "You can say you’ve got it, but once you get on the field, you don’t know if you’ve got it. I don’t know if I do or not, but if we were to talk and you were to give me a formation for this upcoming week I’d know every single play. I’d know where everyone’s at, I’d know all the responsibilities. That’s on paper, that’s not on the field, with four guys 300-pounds are flying at you. So, I don’t know."
Pryor is confident that he has improved a great deal since training camp, when he talked at length about the need to get better with his footwork and accuracy.
"I’ve been doing a lot of footwork," Pryor said. "It’s amazing, the accuracy that I have now. I’m able to step into my throws and throw exactly where I want the ball at, and I just keep getting better at that. As a quarterback, you never get to that level where you stop working. There’s always room for improvement and that’s all I’m looking for."
Palmer has mentored Pryor since the day he arrived in a trade from the Cincinnati Bengals last October. He said he realizes that Pryor is in a difficult situation. At the same time, he is impressed by the way Pryor handles himself.
"There’s been zero dropoff," Palmer said of Pryor's commitment. "He’s in a tough spot being the third-stringer, where you don’t get a chance to dress out, but (he) studies his butt off, continues to work, gets as many reps as he can in practice, is completely in it."

-- Nos. 1 and 2 running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson returned to practice today after missing the past three games.
Allen said, "They look like they’re working their way back."
Which is another way of saying, they have a ways to go before they're as sharp as they were before they suffered high-ankle sprains Nov. 4.
Allen said McFadden and Goodson took reps with the first-team offense, even though they were limited in their participation. The weather Sunday won't impact the decision whether they play against the Browns or not, Allen added.
Regardless of how well and how fast they heal, Allen said fullback Marcel Reece will continue to be a vital part of the rushing attack.
"Marcel has earned the right to carry the ball some," Allen said. "We’ll still use him in that capacity, yes."
Palmer said it's a benefit to the Raiders just having Reece on the field, especially when he is in the backfield at the same time as McFadden.
"It gives you something to worry about defensively preparing for us," Palmer said. "You don't know. Marcel's been in the backfield to block when Darren's been in the games and now gives us a little more unknown, you don;t know exactly what's coming at you.
"Marcel can catch a ball out of the backfield, he can run it. Darren can block, Marcel can run it. Gives us just kind of another dimension. That's the right way to say it: earned the right. Because the way he's run and you don't expect a fullback to come in and be the starting tailback and be as good as he's been."
Reece rushed for 225 yards at an average of 4.8 yards the past three games, whereas McFadden averaged only 3.3 yards in the eight games he played before the injury.

-- Rookie wide receiver Rod Streater started the regular-season opener, in part because of injuries to Denarius Moore and Jacoby Ford. Now, he is at the point where he played only five snaps last Sunday.
Meanwhile, fellow rookie receiver Juron Criner is headed the opposite way. Criner went from not playing early on to 40 snaps against the Bengals last Sunday.
This is yet another sign of the Raiders doing the pruden thing, taking a look at younger, inexperienced players between now and the end of the season.
"It's more of a situation where we want to get a look at Juron Criner, a guy that we drafted, a young guy that we think highly of," Allen said. "He’s getting more comfortable in the offense. ... There are some young guys we want to make sure we get a look at, and he’s obviously one of those guys, that we drafted, we like him. We've got to let him play."
Criner said there's room for all the receivers to fill a role on the team, given their diverse talents.
“There’s a lot of things that we all bring to the table that one of the others don’t," Criner said. "I just add a bigger frame to the run game on the outside blocking, red-zone, coming across the middle. I’ll try to be whatever you want me to be and do whatever you want me to do.”

-- Allen shot down any suggestion that he took a more active role in caling the defensive plays during the Bengals game. He said the play-calling was handled the same way it has been handled all year with he and defensive coordinator Jason Tarver in concert.

-- The recent struggles of right guard Mike Brisiel haven't gone unnoticed by Allen.
Yet, Allen doesn't sound too concerned about Brisiel getting to the point where he is a reliable asset and not a sometimes liability.
"He has obviously struggled some," Allen said. "But he’s working extremely hard to try to get better and he knows he needs to play better. And he takes a lot of pride in it. It’s important to him. And that’s important to me, to make sure, I want guys that want it to be important to him."
Brisiel said he wasn't pleased with the way he played against the Bengals.
"We did some things, me personally, that hurt ourselves," Brisiel said. "I just got to go back and work on it."

-- Palmer is 9-3 against the Browns all-time, with 25 touchdowns, 14 interceptions and a 90.6 passer rating.
He said the Browns have a slew of new faces on the roster since the last time he played them -- he wasn't here last season when the Raiders beat the Browns -- but their overall approach remains the same.
"A lot has changed personnel wise and look-wise, but they always seem to be a big physical group that can still rush the passer," Palmer said. "There’s a lot of teams that you play that are really big and physical and are there to stop the run and push the pocket, but they have two guys on the edge that can rush the passer. Just a good, physical group up front."

    If you think a new GM is going to announce that they are re-building in his first year, basically cementing bad ticket sales, then you are somewhat of a idiot.

    Buddy Ryan was once asked why he predicted a division championship his first year with the Eagles, when the team was terrible. His response? “If I don’t think my players can win, who IS going to think that? Them?”

    No, I’m not an “excuse factory” for this staff. I believe a number of assistants should rightfully be given their walking papers come January (starting with Hoffman, Pollack and Williams). But canning DA and Reggie would be a terrible move that would cement this franchise’s joke status for another decade, if not longer.

    If the Raiders show any improvement at all Reggie, DA, and the entire staff will be back.

    But if the Raiders completely tank down the stretch then Reggie will have to admit his mistake in firing Hue and scapegoat the entire coaching staff.

    Reggie knows this will be his last GM job so he will stall for as long as possible with his five year plan.

    I still say Reggie’s gonna look at signing Stupar off the Eagles’ PS. He knows the system and started at MLB for Linebacker U.

  • GreatWhiteRaider

    - and while I’d rather watch the offense from last year than this year’s abomination…..how come we always got shut down in the 2nd half?
    - Al never wanted anyone to challenge his status and control. What kind of established coach would come and work for average to lame $, the owner is also the DC, players sign here for their “Retirement Contract”, the owner (allegedly) will call you at 330am to go over things.
    - My personal take, I have no proof, but I bet a lot of the motivation behind trading Chucky was the fact that Al realized it was Chucky, not him, getting credit for the Raiders revival.

    I loved Al, but c’mon.

    Hue is not our problem anymore, The new guys are. I just don’t like how these coaches are getting a pass for lack of talent when Hue getting blown out in the last two games was all his fault. Where’s Dennis Allens blame? He certainly deserves some. At the same time i’m tired of defending someone who isn’t here anymore, But Hue and Cable for all their deficiencies at least tried to make it work with what they were given. The current regieme seems content with wasting a year until everything is perfect for them.

    In an honest answer, the games were at least fun to watch again after 10 years of humiliation. I don’t care how bad teams like the chiefs are, thumping them is always good. Breaking the losing streak to the Chargers is good. Setting a scoring record on the donkeys is good. These games are getting unbearable, and you can’t deny that.

    He did. More than once,but you will never get the bottom lip suckers around here to talk about that!

    Who freaking cares , if the guy couldn’t put up points with playoffs on the line , who fukin care I don’t hate Hue for what he did but I’m freaking tired of guys propping him up like he was 2nd coming of bill Walsh or something , and it wasn’t like the hue was scoring in 30s range , we saw what the O could do down the stretch , it wouldn’t have been any different this year
    ——–

    Hue is not our problem anymore, The new guys are. I just don’t like how these coaches are getting a pass for lack of talent when Hue getting blown out in the last two games was all his fault. Where’s Dennis Allens blame? He certainly deserves some. At the same time i’m tired of defending someone who isn’t here anymore, But Hue and Cable for all their deficiencies at least tried to make it work with what they were given. The current regieme seems content with wasting a year until everything is perfect for them.


    I’m not hating on hue all I’m saying is this team want that good and It just took advantage of beatable schedule, but these guys want to put him in HOF, I mean if you guys want to put Jim in HoF jus consider how the heck he ended the season ,we were like so close from going 0-6 down the stretch , again Hue was def creative n stuff but he wasn’t all that these guys think he was, and I’m telling you guys again Knapp sucks but it wouldn’t have mattered anyways who we had calling the plays , or who was freaking our DCO, we freaking finished last in nfl last year while we barely faced 5 top 15 Os last year these guys want to see improvements when we are facing top 15 Os week in and week out with worse pass rush

    Lost in all of this is the very likely scenario, that Al Davis would have possibly fired Hue Jackson anyways, after an 8-8 season following an 8-8 season.

    Unlikely, maybe, but certainly possible.

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

    Except we wouldn’t have finished 8-8 last year with Al alive. Al would not have made the Palmer trade, so it would have been Boller and a greener-than-grass Pryor down the stretch, which means 4-12 and either Jim Fassel or Rob Ryan as our head coach right now.
