    Are the Jags & Lions gonna fire HC’s ??

    they finished worse than Dennis Allen

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

    And why would we want to be like the Jags or Lions?

    See, this is the problem with many in here. You want so badly to be just like the rest of the league that you fail to see what’s good for the team.

    Pryor is a NIGHTMARE in the redzone it makes all the difference in the WORLD!!!
    ============
    Not really, Priest. Wish it was so, but plays were just executed ugly. Floaters. Bad slides. Horrible throws. Yeah, he floated it in to a wide open guy due to defender slipping, but was Pryors bad play that cost us this game.
    Pryor is not the answer.

  • fingers

    They made it exciting anyway… Been awhile since we said that…

  • RaiderSam

    OK, just a kneel down

    Never stated Pryor was better than Smith.

    Just pointed out Norv Turner was the catalyst to Smith’s escape from the land of bust.

    yeah, i think i’ll take palmer.

  • Priesttj12

    When have the Raiders had a QB that could do that like this kid can…………NEVER!!!

  • http://distyblog.com @distd2

    Are we sure we have the 3rd pick or are there other 4-12 teams?

  • http://goducks.com RaiderDuck

    Ah well. Close loss. Pryor’s play definitely gives Dennis Allen (probably our best HC since Gruden) something to build on for next year.

  • alex7

    Realist:

    At the end of the day, this means TP is promoted to #2 next year.

  • RaiderSam

    Good showing. only 7th rushing touchdown and first rush TD since Jacksonville game

    You folks behind this current staff, what positives do we have to build on? Continuity for the sake of continuity? lol. smh

    ^^^^^^^^^
    That’s the only thing the DA defenders can say.

    Sad!

  • edward teach

    Strange, but true…

    If the opening kickoff isn’t returned for a TD there’s a good chance it’s 21-17 Raiders right now.

    Say what you want about Tarver, but there’s no question that this defense has improved as the year has gone on.

    Upgrade a few positions on that side of the ball and they could be pretty good next year.

    Yup.

    @Distd2

    I believe it was Jerry Mac of SF Chron’s Vic Tafur that stated Raiders own tie breakers to get better/high pick in 1st round amongst 4-12 teams.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNoi_wwzbtQ Zymurge

    The only problem with kind of play is it’s 50% TD and 50% interception when you just lob it up there and pray. For every nice play, there’s the downside where it’s a lost chance to put points on the board.

    Hopefully, he’s done enough to raise his league clout just a bit. I’m afraid his lack of arm on tape will lower it just as much, as it’s Tebow and Vince Young all over again. Still, might get as much as a 4th for him now.

  • 505raiders

    damn had a good chance at that with the sloppy field

    oh well FIRE KNAPP NOW

  • MiamiRaider78

    Good job TP, first game and dropped passes complimented by a great running game/pass blocking with the great offensive mind Knapp. lol

  • dr_robert

    only a moron (plenty of those here) could watch this game and think pryor is ready to unseat palmer. too funny.

    the raiders lost their final two games of the regular season on their 2002 Super Bowl run.

    Momentum matters not in the NFL.

    Good showing? We lost to a crap team.

  • 303Raider

    We will move back in the draft and grab a DE, ML, and SS.

    Sign a top tier WR, Jennings, or DBowe.

    Trade CP, save that money, and build around TP.

    TP will ONLY get better!!!

    Pryor isn’t the answer …. Yet…. I liked what I saw in the kid…. And I understand why this teams not winning… And it’s not Palmers fault…

    WHEW!!!!

    Top 3 pick, and Pryor looks good enough that we can trade Palmer for a #1 pick.

    Perfect set up for a good semi pro Super Bowl party, lol.
    ======
    Wrong, dumbass. Anyone who thinks Pryor should start next year is a fool. The balls caught were off the mark. Bad decisions. I don’t want Pryor starting. Backup, ok. But not starting.

  • CDERaider

    Raiders lose 8 of 9 games to finish one of the worst seasons in our history.

    Not remotely good enough.

    Fire Dennis Allen.

    I will say that was Pryor’s best play of the game. Of his career. He bought time and found the open guy. It wasn’t a progression, it was jail break ad libbing. Sure it helped that Weddle slipped, but buying time in the pocket gets some credit for creating that.

    Nice play, but not what I’d want to count on for consistency.
    ____________________________

    You’re so full of it. He went through his progressions that why he threw to a completely opposite side of the field. Jeez, at this point your analysis is just sad.

    BTW, he was able to do what you said he couldnt ;)

    3 TD’s 2 passing and 1 pick for whatever yards but it was pretty much what I expected and more. Tell me you don’t want this kid at QB and I’ll call you NUTS!!

    Raiders will have 4-12 draft tie-breaker because we have the Chiefs and Jaguars helping our schedule be easier than the Eagles.

  • dr_robert

    i don’t want this kid at qb.

    Who wrote “A pass only a mother could love” in post 346?

    Almost 50% completion % and 150 yards….yeah, lets make him the starter in 2013!

    #1 pick in 2014!

    I mean if we were close to winning the SB, than yeah.

    1) Carson makes too much money
    2) we have too many other needs
    3) TP will only get better
    4) he gives us more options in the red zone

    are we SURE this win is worth dropping 3 spots in the draft?

    For what purpose?

    Even with a win we would have kept the #3 with tiebreakers.
