Raiders gearing up for dynamic Newton; Pryor playing more Sunday

When a play breaks down against the Carolina Panthers, the Raiders won’t have Brady Quinn to bail them out this time.
No, the Raiders know they’re in for a stern test Sunday when they get their first look at second-year quarterback Cam Newton, one of the numerous dynamic quarterbacks that entered the NFL the past two seasons.
Newton struggled early this season on the heels of a transcendent rookie season in which he passed for 4,051 yards and 21 touchdowns and rushed for 706 yards and 14 touchdowns.
But Newton of late is looking more and more like the player many expected to see in his second season. He has 10 touchdowns and no interceptions in his past five games, as well as 293 yards and three touchdowns rushing.
Raiders coach Dennis Allen said game-planning for Newton is a handful.
“He creates a lot of other issues that you have to worry about,” Allen said. “You have to worry about him in the passing game. just scrambling around and keeping the play alive. Obviously, they use him in a lot of different ways in the running game also. He presents some unique challenges. He’s obviously a tremendous talent.”
Newton, 6-foot-5 and 248 pounds, is a threat to run at any time. For instance, he rambled for 72 yards and a touchdown against the Falcons a couple of games ago on a designed play.
Even so, Raiders defensive backs can’t leave their assignments too early if Newton shows run, for rish of Newton pulling up and throwing the ball over the top.
“You don’t come off,” Huff said. “When he’s scrambling around, you really have no idea. Especially, our back will be turned, so you gotta cover until you think it’s two, three seconds later.”
Raiders middle linebacker Omar Gaither spent one season with the Panthers and went up against Newton in practice every day. He said defenders have to be wary of Newton to run at any time.
“He’s big and fast,” Gaither said. “If he were playing a different position it would probably be defensive end. And a guy who can run. He has every tool you need in a quarterback, and he can beat you with his feet. So you basically need to keep him in front and contain him on the edges. You see the highlights every week of him getting a 60-yard scamper. Those are the kind of things that kill your defense. You just have to contain him.”
Raiders outside linebacker Philip Wheeler played against Newton last season, when Wheeler was with the Colts. He said the key is swarming Newton and getting as many bodies on him as possible.
“It’s just very important to stay disciplined in your responsibilities,” Wheeler said.

– Sebastian Janikowski won the fan portion of the voting for the Pro Bowl. He’s one-third of the way to his second straight Pro Bowl selection.
The man standing in his way is Phil Dawson, the kicker who spent 1998 in the Raiders training camp after signing as an undrafted free agent out of Texas.
Dawson has converted 26 of 27 field-goal attempts this season. Janikowski is 29 of 32, with his misses coming from 51, 61 and 64 yards.
Coaches and players each get one-third of the voting, too. Selections will be announced Wednesday at 4 p.m. on NFL Network.

– The Raiders are last in the league in rushing touchdowns this season, with three.
To put that in perspective, only three teams since the merger in 1970 had fewer in a season. And Buccaneers rookie running back Doug Martin had four rushing touchdowns against the Raiders in their game Nov. 4.
Worse, the Raiders had 16 rushing touchdowns last season and 19 in 2010. Hue Jackson called plays during both seasons. Also, five times during Jackson’s two seasons, the Raiders had at least three rushing touchdowns in a game.

– Second-year quarterback Terrelle Pryor will be used on some third-down and red-zone plays against the Panthers so that the Raiders “can create a different look the defense to contend with” and “try to use some of his athletic ability.”
Pryor played one series last Sunday against the Chiefs. The series consisted of two hand-offs and an incomplete pass from Pryor to wide receiver Darrius Hewyard-Bey.
Pryor has spent the better part of his two NFL seasons biding his time, learning from Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart and working on his accuracy, timing, mechanics and footwork.
Now he’s ready to take his game for a test drive, which means for more than three plays. Until that happens, Pryor said he doesn’t want to hear about any comparisons to Newton, Robert Griffin III and Colin Kaepernick.
“When it’s time for me, and I really get a lot of reps and get comfortable, I’ll have success,” Pryor said. “I really, truly believe that. Right now I’m just waiting. Right now I don’t want to compare myself to Kaepernick or Cam or any of those guys because them guys and Griffin have proved it. I haven’t proved anything.
“I can’t really say I’d be like them. I don’t know what I’m going to be like because I haven’t even played yet. I can tell from practice and certain plays that they run and certain plays that I run, I could tell I can do that in practice. It’s not when people are watching, so I can’t really compare myself to them.”
Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Knapp is watching at practice, and he said he likes what he sees from Pryor these days.
“I’ve definitely seen the progress during practice on his mechanics, the rhythm of his throws and the consistency of his footwork,” Knapp said. “He has taken to coaching very well. (Quarterbacks coach) John DeFilippo should get a lot of credit because he has spent a lot of time with him, as far as working on the individual part of the game.”
Pryor said he is satisfied with the improvements he has made since training camp, especially his accuracy and footwork. Getting a taste of what it’s like in a regular-season game gave him added confidence.
“I wasn’t really nervous because I studied them so much it was like second nature when I got to the line,” Pryor said. “Obviously, there’s a tiny bit of nerves. Obviously, I would have liked to play a little more and had a couple of different plays I’d really want to use, but I got an opportunity to get on the field and that’s a step from where I was. I can’t really complain. I’m just grateful my coaches let me get on the field.”

– Stat of the day: On passes longer than 20 yards downfield, Palmer is 10 of 50 (20 percent) for 432 yards, with three touchdowns and three interceptions. He went 16 of 45 (35.6 percent) for 618 yards, with six touchdowns and two interceptions last season.

– Defensive tackle Richard Seymour has missed the past six games with a hamstring injury. He hasn’t practiced yet this week, so it’s likely that he is headed for a seventh straight missed game.
Therefore, Allen said, it’s possible that the Raiders will just shut down Seymour and place him on the injured-reserve list.

— Allen and Palmer raved about Panthers middle linebacker Luke Kuechly on Wednesday. Today, it was Knapp’s turn to sing the rookie’s praises.
“When I see a rookie linebacker tackle Tony Gonzalez pretty handily, then get up and not back down, because Tony gets up and tries to shrug him off, and he gets right back in it, and you see it happen two or three more times in the game, you know the guy’s got a little something to him,” Knapp said of Kuechly. “So it does show up on tape. He’s always around the ball. He’s fast to react and he has pretty good instincts, so that does show up on tape.”
Isolate on Kuechly during Sunday’s game. Trust me, it’s worth your investment if you want to see how the middle linebacker position should be played and what you have missed out of Rolando McClain the past three seasons.
Then, factor in that both were selected in the top 10 of the NFL draft — McClain in 2010, Kuechly in April — both won the Butkus Award as the nation’s top collegiate linebacker and you will get a sense for how important it is that a team have a solid scouting department.
Several people cautioned Al Davis about using a first-round pick on McClain. A few others were enamored with McClain. The latter persuaded Davis to draft McClain.

– Heyward-Bey was held without a catch against the Chiefs, marking the second time in four games that he didn’t catch any passes and the third time in 14 games this season.
Knapp said Heyward-Bey’s health is fine and that that’s just how it works out from time to time.
“It’s not by design,” Knapp said. “It’s just the way things have played out. Kind of the same thing happened with Denarius (Moore) for a couple of games. Even, you could say the same thing is true for Brandon (Myers); it’s sometimes the way the game plays out. It’s not by design, but it’s just the ball has been delivered other places because of coverage and/or progressions, but it’s not by game plan.”

    You can’t evaluate the other 10 starters offensively when your QB is throwing 5 yard passes at people’s feet.

    It isn’t about evaluating TP ONLY, it is about evaluating everyone else as well.

    A crappy QB stunts that evaluation process massively.

    I can pretty much guarantee the following regarding the Raider offseason:

    There are no magic wands or quick fixes to 10 years of HORRIBLE DRAFTS AND OVERSPENDING ON OVER AGED/UNDER PRODUCTIVE FREE AGENTS LIKE SEYMOUR!!!

    No coaches are going anywhere. The inmates no longer run the asylum. Accountability exists and any disgruntled players(McClain) will be gone.

    The draft will have a heavy focus on both lines for the next two years. Remember that Reggie is missing 75% of his top two picks with his first two drafts.

    Any free agent acquisitions will be of the practice squad variety like an Adams. No big money will be spent. Never has been worth it.

    Draft:
    1. DT (replace Seymour)
    3. OT (replace Barnes)
    Best available after that.

    Seymour, McClain, Shaugnessy are gone. Carlisle retire (replaced by Bergstrom?).
    If we can get a decent OT in round 3 Barnes will be gone or will be a reserve. He can not compete on his own against good DE’s.(Remember Denver?)
    KELLY IS A HUGE PROBLEM. He represents a $10 million cap hit next year and he can not compete.
    The last major bad contract we have to deal with.(5 years @$70 million. RIDICULOUS). Perhaps he can be part of a DT rotation as a backup but he is a horrible value realtive to his production.

    I recognize that things may break a bit differently than my scenario but we have massive line issues on both sides of the ball.
    Can we get a year out of Carter? Do we even want to bring Brisiel back? The reality is we will not be able to make a playoff push till 2014 at the earliest.
    TOO MANY HOLES AND TOO FEW HIGH DRAFT PICKS.

    Regarding QB talk.
    Palmer is rated number 17 in the NFL.

    On the surface that is average.
    Given the fact that we have had to play catch up all year with inexperineced WR’s and with at best an inconsistent running game, his performance has been rather good.

    It would be nice to get TP some experience to get him ready to be a number two next year.

    We have far greater concerns on the Oline AND Dline as compared to QB play.

    The best thing for the country is to go over the cliff.

    Enough of this band-aid crap, just rip it off.

    If we are going to raise taxes, raise them on everybody. Why do the rich have to pay more? What did they do? If only one class should get taxed, it should be the do-nothing poor people.
    =============================================

    Going over the cliff will no doubt cause the American and thus world economies to go back into recession. The highest earners got the LARGEST cuts under Bush. The reason the rich would pay more in taxes is it is good economic policy. If all the money in the US was redirected only to me, it would be great for me, but catastrophic for everyone but me. That is what has happened with 30 years of conservative dogma. Money has gone to fewer and fewer people, gutting the economy. That has to change or the economy will continue to get worse and worse over time.

    #260 Palmer signed a contract. Nobody forced him to do it. His agent could have requested a shorter one. restructured to the vet minimum so they could trade him. Palmer just decided to stay home like Jake Plummer and abandon the team that set him up financially for life. not the mention the fans, coaches and his teammates. He was the #1 overall pick that Cincy envisioned turning their franchise around. They had high hopes for him.

    i’m sorry but if you sign a contract, you’re obligated to honor the terms. thats life. Palmer didn’t do the right thing.

    On March 8th Reggie restructured Seymour’s contract for the 2012 season.

    Reggie lowered his 7.5 million base salary to 925,000

    AND TURNING THE REST INTO A ROSTER BONUS THAT WILL BE SPREAD OUT UNTIL 2016.

    Reggie tacked on another year to Seymour’s contract to further spread out the hit.

    It’s on Reggie.

  • Charlie

    DR

    I did. Mr Davis signed Seymour to his present contract just before the NFL lockout/strike in 2011. It was a two year deal with $11.5 million guaranteed each year with the potential for a toatl of $15 million each year with incentives. He did that not being sure what the collective bargaining agreement would look like regarding free agents.

    Mr Davis substantially over paid for Seymour and Kelly among others.
    Reggie kept Seymour because of the enormous cap hit cutting him would represent AND HE HAD NO FIRST OR SECOND ROUND PICKS TO WORK WITH.
    HE ALSO HAD RIDCULOUS CONTRACTS WITH ROUTT AND WIMBLEY.

    2. It WAS smart because we were already in cap hell this year, Reggie HAD to spread it out. The cap hit for Seymour next year is only 5.5 mill. In terms of salary cap, all Reggie did was spread the cap hit for cutting Seymour over 2 years, instead of taking it this year.

    BTW, I just had to say that giving Pryor the most playing time he has had in his NFL career this sunday sounds like a questionable move.

    Why you ask? Well, He is going against a defense that is well schooled in defending what Pryor does best.
    I mean Carolina does practice against Cam Newton all week, right?

    I really believe the coaching staff is setting Pryor up to fail even if it is indirectly.

    Lack of thought went into this. Pryor should have been getting his feet wet weeks ago when we knew playoffs weren’t happening.

    Now when Pryor is gone after the season the coaching staff can say “we tried”.

    What a joke.
