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.

    Correct that, Rivers just sh*t talked Giordano after that TD pass to DX.

    Ok, enough. We’re are the plays designed for TP? Time to start bringing them out.

    Pryor needs to work on his blocking and catching in the offseason…..

    =====

    After seeing the way he exposes WRs himself over the middle, I think he has no interest in taking that kind of beating.

  • alex7

    that’s an NFL QB throw.

  • mastercez

    Game over..

  • Al_is_theraiders

    lmao…but we have good corners…norv beatdown of DA…and you want to keep DA….f vcking stupid.

  • DJ Johnny

    Rivers just exposed Brandian Ross for what he is…a garbage practice squad hack.

  • mcfadden20.

    Who just got beat?

  • Priesttj12

    Brandion Ross has been getting ripped this game. Get Adams back in there next year. Huff and adams our best corners this year by far………..the rest have been BUMS!!

    But we didn’t neeed DVD he can’t play……..lol

  • J Hill

    Where’s Gio????

    We need a FS BADDDDDDDD!

    Ed Reed type player picks that off.

  • radraider

    tp should be at least #2 next year.

  • RaidO

    When the Raiders were eliminated from playoff connection TP should have been playing. DA saying he is not ready to be back up is pure BS. He may be ready to be a starter.
    Palmer $17 mill against the cap in 2013= Bye bye. Put that money some where else.

    Here’s why everyone hates Philip Rivers: chirped the backup practice squad pickup (Ross) after throwing the TD. Acting like he beat Deion Sanders.

    He’s a whiny bully.

    Pryors problems are the same problems Palmers had…. The rest of the team…

    I would like to take this opportunity to mention that Carson Palmer somehow passed for 4000 yards and 22 Tds with this team.

    A very good point.

  • jackasspuria

    There was a report from Yahoo’s Jason Cole saying ‘sources’ said both Mark Davis and Reggie McKenzie are speaking to confidants on what to do with DA.

    Who knows what will happen.

    Maybe Mean Mark fires Machete McKenzie and the whole lot of them.

    I’m one who said Pryor would suck. He doesn’t suck, but he isn’t the answer.

    Yup Tarver sucks too. They all have to go. This is bs.

    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.

    I would say zone blocking too, however, DMC ran in that scheme at Arkansas.
    ___________

    All that matters is what he did in the NFL imo. And that is play better in power blocking. You don’t go from what we was last year to what he is this year with out blowing out your knee unless there is some serious scheme problems

    And yet you predicted playoffs.Smart.

  • DJ Johnny

    394,

    I agree. It’s the same schytt Palmer has had to deal with ALL SEASON.

  • MiamiRaider78

    Alex7,

    They are idiots. Obviously he has much to learn but there are somce facets of his game that will make the transition easier. I like what I see so far and dropped balls aren’t helping.

  • alex7

    lol Booty

    you think DHB was standing still facing Pryor when Pryor MADE the throw?

    You do know it’s hard to sprint downfield 30 yards then stop and move the opposite direction, right?

    Underthrown, get over it.

  • Try Some Reality

    You guys honestly think this staff is safe? You have a coach on the other side of the field that’s getting canned at the end of the year and they are smacking us around. What positives were there to build off this year? Cause if this staff is held over, next year will be ugly and it will truly be a long term very gradual rebuild.

    More recent reports (not from Hue’s press agents at Yahoo) state DA is safe, but a bunch of his assistants (particularly Knapp) probably won’t be employed by us 12 hours from now.

    I am curious, just respectfully, what you like about Pryor as an NFL QB.

  • RaidO

    Yeah, they could bring in a REAL creative OC. Run a little option read with TP. Like RGII, Newotn, Kap, and wilson

    if Pryor is making the same mistakes he made throughout his career at OSU and during pre-season,

    then no, it’s not nit-picking.

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    He lost 4 games in his OSU career. And hasn’t played for 2. It was a bad pass. Although I bet Criner or streater would have fought for that ball harder.

  • http://www.raiders.com KoolKell

    Ugly ugly throw.

  • dr_robert

    Unfortunately, Pryor has maybe done just enuff to make it seem reasonable to keep him at qb. But I don’t think he will ever be good.

  • 8RaiderReign8

    You guys are hilarious. If DHB doesn’t make a brilliant, subtle push off and then a falling backwards catch previous, Pryor has no TDs and and 2 picks. He underthrows a very poor, hanging ball to a covered receiver and it’s the receiver’s fault?

    He also has “fired” about 3 balls now into receivers across the middle with defenders draped on them. One was almost a catch and fumble (saved by a roughing call) and two have been incompletes. You have to put the WRs in position to catch the ball, and better yet hit them in stride so they can run out of trouble.

    his decision and weak arm are going to get a lot of Raiders WRs on the IR.
    ______________________

    I knew you were going to do this Zymurge

    Jerry Rice made a career of making the tough catch over the middle. Most of the balls over the middle have been clear drops and everybody knows it. You can spin how you want.

    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

    DMC wasn’t bad in his rookie year under Cable’s ZBS either. The turf toe is what killed him.

  • mcfadden20.

    Behind Moore , would have probably been a TD
