Halftime: Chargers 17, Raiders 7

The Chargers countered Terrelle Pryor’s first touchodown pass with an 81-yard drive that consumed 9:43 of the second quarter, ending with an 11-yard pass from Phillip Rivers to Antonio Gates for the touchdown.

Pryor drove the Raiders 80 yards in 12 plays before hitting Darrius Heyward-Bey with a 9-yard score _ Oakland’s first touchdown since the Denver game.

He made nice throws on the run, 10 yards to Rod Streater to his right, and 17 yards to Brandon Myers to his left.

Mike Goodson and Takeo Spikes were both ejected following a fight on Oakland’s scoring drive.

San Diego kept its epic drive going with a 6-yard run by upback Eric Weddle on fourth-and-1 with Mike Scifres back to punt.

    Too many drops. Not great passes but catchable.

    Also, he threw a “fade route” for the TD. Green Bay does it all the time. You’re starting to use words like “IF” instead of looking at the reality

    ====
    Sit down and learn some football son:

    A fade route is thrown over the top to the outside, where the WR’s route keeps the CB to the inside. The throw comes in over the top where ONLY the WR can make a play.

    That ball was thrown in the area of a fade, but it was thrown more like a hitch pattern, except with too much loft. The problem is, DHB wasn’t running a hitch, he was holding the sideline for the throw on that side. The ball ended up to the inside of DHB, where the CB was in great position for the pick. DHB’s push saved his ass.

    No coaching in the world corrects these flaws. He’s not an nfl passer. Lets get ready to move on. Perhaps geno is on deck.

    Underthrown pass by Pryor, no question.

    But DHB needs to catch that too.

    Pryor’s first start. DHB’s 4th season. Who has the better excuse?

    Well, we knew Pryor was fast. Just proved that. Everyone said he has horrible mechanics. He just proved that. What happened? how were we fooled?

  • VanHeathen30

    Grading TP behind his pathetic excuse for an O Line isn’t possible.
    That scramble was impressive…

  • SilverNBlackPA

    If that pass is just a touch more on target, that is played on highlight reels for years

  • 89706Raider

    Pryor is doing a decent job, but he’s sure giving all of you Jason Campbell lovers some deja vu… Realize it’s the kid’s first start, but he’s not able to manage his field well and is quick to bail with a little pressure – more mobile than JC but basically not placing his passes well.

    Brilliant athlete. Poor passer.

  • mcfadden20.

    That could have been play of the year , Pryor does have that exciting factor on every ply

  • nycraider

    give Pryor credit, on third down he hasnt thrown one ball before the third down marker. At least hes trying, its the WRs who are having a bad day and being exposed

  • jackasspuria

    Wonder if Mark Davis and Reggie McKenzie make a quick move aLa the Eagles-Andy Reid on DA and this staff.

    We can say they should be kept or fired all we want, but, it will be those two making the decision.

    Wasnt a bad throw. He actually threw it EXACTLY where DHB was. Watch the play, and watch it again. DHB didnt make a good attempt for the ball, and Jammer actually had to make an OUTSTANDING PLAY to make the INT.

    That wasnt a simple INT right into the hands of the DB.

    Stop it.
    ===============
    Ball was short. Was a duck. What were you watching?
    ————————————–
    The play. Multiple times, from different angles.

    DHB is facing Pryor, of course its in front of him. Pryor isnt supposed to throw it OVER his head in this case, goodness. Watch the play again. DHB is in position, the ball is headed right in his direction, Jammer is BEHIND DHB. DHB STANDS there, not moving forward or making a play toward the ball, but rather just jumps STRAIGHT UP, as he stupidly always does, waiting for the ball to get to him. Quentin Jammer MAKES A PLAY by jumping in FRONT of DHB for the deflection, which he then was able to secure before it hit the ground. That was ALL on DHB. He made no attempt for the catch, just waited for the ball, and also didnt make a play to prevent Jammer from catching the deflection.

    Ive given my entire view of the play, full details.

    Now what were YOU watching?
    ============
    Did TP lead the receiver? No, dumbass.
    did the defender step up and take the ball? Yes, dumbass.
    Did the ball float? yes, dumbass.
    Was it a floundering duck? yes, dumbass.
    Clean your glasses. DUMBASS.
    ——————————————
    HAHAHAHA, you are a clueless clown. Ive always felt bad when this blog went wild on you, but you are a b!tch AND an idiot. I’ll be ignoring youre dumb @ss going forward, but last word, let me respond to your idiocy.

    ScrubKell “Did TP lead the receiver? No, dumbass.”

    Sigh. How the hell do you lead a WR thats already in position to make the catch? Wow. Lead him where, to the end zone, where the secondary was ALREADY over top? Yeah, smart one. If Pryor “leads” him over top, the ball is into triple coverage. He threw underneath the coverage, INCLUDING JAMMER, who was STILL BEHIND DHB when the ball got there.

    “did the defender step up and take the ball? Yes, dumbass.”

    Umm, no. The defender stepped up and deflected the pass so that DHB couldnt catch it. He was not physically in position to “take the ball” as you said. After the awesome deflection by Jammer, he STILL didnt give up on the play, while DHB did, and he pulled in the deflection. He DID NOT cleanly intercept the actually pass, as you have just lied and stated.

    Talk out of your mouth to me sideways again, you f#ckin scrub, I want you to. Everyone here knows youre a hoe cake. Bring it on, you sad little man.
