Q&A with Raiders CB Tracy Porter

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013 at 12:21 pm in Oakland Raiders.

A transcription of a conference call Wednesday with newly-signed cornerback Tracy Porter and Bay Area reporters who cover the Raiders:

Q: How appealing to play for Dennis Allen again?

Porter: It played a pretty significant part, because he was my defensive backs coach my first three years in New Orleans. I’m very familiar with what he likes to do. I mean, he’s familiar with me and it was just a natural comfort zone there.

Q: How is your health, a lost season last year . . . are you 100 percent?

Porter: Oh yeah. I’m more than 100 percent ready. I was actually late on the phone call, I’m in the middle of the phone call right now and I just remembered I had to talk to you guys. I’ve been out for the past two or three months, perfectly fine, doing defensive back drills, haven’t had any setbacks. I look at last season as a learning experience as well as just a setback. Any setback, there’s always an opportunity for a comeback. It was a setback last year, now I’ll have a major comeback.

Q: When you say no setbacks, are you referring to the seizures?

Porter: I mean, the seizure, that was just a one-time deal. They never really found the cause. It may be the altitude. Maybe I wasn’t adjusted to the climate. I don’t know the reason that it happened, but it happened. It’s in the past. I’ve been cleared of everything and I’m ready to go. I’m 100 percent.

Q: Talked about Dennis’ style, what do you envision this defense looking like?

Porter: I look at it as a little bit of the things that allowed those guys to be successful last year. I mean, corner play is huge, not only for Dennis but for any team to be successful in the NFL. If you don’t have successful guys on an island that can help you get off the field on third down, then it’s going to be hard for your guys to rush the passer and affect the quarterback. I just look for him to put pressure on the corners to lock those guys down out there on the edges, and he’s always done a good job in developing his corners. I came out, yeah, I had talent, I could do certain things, but he taught me things along the way, technique wise. He taught me things mentally to prepare to go out there on the field and give my all each and every play and that made me a better corner on the field. It provided me with a lot of success. Having that history with him, I was hoping we could just pick back up where we left off up in New Orleans.

Q: Visits to other teams? Other opportunities?

Porter: A visit to New Orleans, I took a visit there, but it was just mainly between New Orleans and Oakland. A few teams inquired about me, they didn’t make a move, I don’t know if they were scared that I had a real problem with seizures or not, but that clearly wasn’t the case. I’ve been cleared of that whole element. That’s in the past now, I’m even concerned with having another. I’ve been cleared. I’ve been taking extra care of my body. If feel great. I feel wonderful and I’m just ready to embrace this opportunity to get my career back on track because of the setback I had last year and show people I am a corner who can play at this level and play at an elite level.

Q: With all you’ve done, Super Bowl championship, etc., still only 26, feel a lot of football in you?

Porter: Absolutely. For one, I haven’t really taken a lot of banging on my body through the years. I started playing football my 11th grade year in high school. Most guys, they start to play football when they’re 4 and 5, so they’ve been getting knocked around a lot more than I have. I still have a slight edge on guys from that aspect as well, I mean, I didn’t play much last year, so my body had enough time to recover. I haven’t taken a lot of nicks on the body. It’s a plus for me, I wanted to be out there on the field but at the end of the day, playing in this league, you’re going to get banged up, but that allowed my body to heal for any nagging little nicks that I’ve had, any little injuries that I sustained. I feel brand new. I’m as healthy as I’ve ever been. I’m just looking forward and I’m excited about the opportunity before me.

Q: How tough to not only have seizure, but not get back on field?

Porter: It was tough. Being the competitor that I am, I wanted to get back on the field once I was cleared and healthy, but this is a business and those guys, they played great, they played tremendous in my absence, they just felt comfortable with those guys on the field and I mean, that’s the nature of the business. You get hurt, guys step up and I mean, you have to watch those guys play. No player wants to sit back and watch another guy play, but at the end of the day it’s a part of the business. I accepted it for what it was, and that’s just what happened.

Q: When you look at Raiders, get sense they’re rebuilding?

Porter: I mean, they have a lot of talent, a lot of speed on the roster. We played those guys, when we were in Denver I played them, and I mean, like I said, they have talent on offense, they have talent on defense, we just have to put all that talent on the field collectively and not back down from any challenge. I don’t know how the locker room is right now because I haven’t had the opportunity to be around the guys yet. My whole mind frame is, I don’t look at anybody as unbeatable. I don’t care who I’m playing with, who I’m playing or what history the team has. They can win 100 games in a row, if they come up and play us, I’m expecting to beat that team. I’m just hoping that the guys in the locker room take that same mentality out there.

Q: See self as a leader? Come in take on that role?

Porter: I welcome any challenge. If I’m asked to be one of the leaders on the team, I’ll definitely do that. I’m more of a guy that leads by example rather than going in and being the rah-rah guy and say this is wwhat we need to do, this is what we don’t need to do and I don’t do it. I’d rather just show guys on the field, off the field, the way it’s supposed to be done, and it will be up to them if they follow that lead, which I’m hoping they would do.

Q: Seems like strategy is to get guys who are looking for either a second chance or a first chance, serious about football, love it, are short on drama . . .does that sum you up?

Porter: Pretty much. I mean, I couldn’t have said it better myself. I’m a guy that stays out of trouble, doesn’t put himself into difficult situations. I’m a guy who loves the game of football, who wants nothing more than to succeed and wants my team to succeed. And another thing the coaches, and Reggie, they’re doing a good job of bringing guys in and keeping guys that have that same mindset. Nobody wants to bring guys in that are troublemakers that are going to be a cancer to the team and break up the team. You don’t want that, because, that destroys the comraderie, it breaks up the locker room, you have have a bunch of guys that are playing for themselves, no one’s on the same page. So we want guys that want to win, that love the game of football, that just want to take this Raiders team to a new level.

Q: Are you a big film guy, or someone who relies on athletic ability and lets that take over?

Porter: I would say, in the beginning I kind of relied on my athleticism early in my career, but as I began to learn the NFL game, because it’s quite different from high school and college. I mean, you have to do more than just rely on your talent, because everyone at this level is talented. There’s such a small percentage of people that make it to this level. I’ve grown to learn and study more film because it allows you to play faster, it allows you to know what the opposing team’s doing. It allows you to know what the opposing team likes to do, what they don’t like to do. If you’re out there and have an idea of what they like to do, it allows you to play faster. The guy that’s running a 4.7 looks like he’s running a 4.4. The guy who’s running the 4.2 looks like he’s running a 4.1. That’s just because they’re a student of the game, they know what’s coming and they know what to anticipate.

Q: Does playing for Allen bring out best of you?

Porter: Having an opportunity rejuvenate my career is one thing, and like I said, Dennis, he did a great job in bringing the best out of me. I’ve grown to love the guy, he was my coach. He was the one who had a hand in getting me drafted. I mean, he wanted me in that room in New Orleans and he wants me in the room in Oakland. I mean, he and I have along history together and it almost seems like he and I, it almost seems like I’m following him because he went from New Orleans to Denver, I went from New Orleans to Denver. He went from Denver to Oakland, now I’m going from Denver to Oakland. It almost seems like he and I are simultaneously sticking together.

    my take on pryor:

    good arm. decent accuracy. terrible mechanics. can’t make all the throws.

    after college, 2 yrs on the team and preseason game time if you haven’t figured out NFL QB footwork and how to throw a laser you simply will never learn

    for all of the ‘bail out” theorist im noticing a trend.

    This is the same group that constantly tried to sell the “bail out”theory when jc was here in order to discredit his effort as well.

    Yet i have never seen anyone say carson was “bailed out”.

    hmmmmm

    question whena qb is “bailed out” does the td come off the board?

    No? why not?

    Pryor is the DHB of qb’s.

    Pryor has great physical tools but doesn’t throw well. The ONE thing a qb needs to be able to do.

    Well I’m of the mindset that week 17 he did okay and didnt fully trust himself….with that being said I’m happy to see he has been on the westcoast working hard and with his teammates….if he has the proper coaching with his mechanics he surely can make this competition that much more interesting

  • dr_robert

    Dhb didn’t earn his starting spot and Pryor is lucky he ever got in a game.

    They both lack the essential skill required for their position.

    Pryor is just a great athlete running around and then tossing the ball.

    If u think he could start and lead the raiders to a single win, let alone a winning season, then u lack any sort of football acumen.

    Same thing in 1998 with Eric Allen…he came here by default and played well here…had he not hurt his knee in 98 the Raiders woulda made playoffs in Gruden’s first year

    1997 the defense was horrible but in draft we got Woodson and Ritchie plus made some good FA moves and bam we were competitive….dont know why people dont think we can do it here in 2013

  • irjonny

    the pryor conversation horse has been beat into the ground. more than once. it’s really a dumb conversation. no one cares about how you evaluate QBs from the comfort of your living room. coaches know better, that’s why he’s not our starter

    *****************
    I literally just watched the play again. The ball was caught 28 yards from the line of scrimmage, and it was WAY out in front of Criner. Criner barely snagged it with the tips of his fingers, like I said, an amazing catch on a poorly placed ball. 28 yards IS NOT A DEEP PASS!

    I am not crapping on The Legend for this, I am merely pointing out the HALF TRUTH of Mistic’s ‘Beautiful 76 yard pass’ comment. That’s it. Mistic tried to say The Legend threw the ball 76 yards on the money, so he obviously can throw the deep ball. The fact is, he threw the ball 28 yards and Criner made one hell of a catch. That’s it. Fact, not fiction. Look it up for yourself.

    Another LIE. I NEVER said Pryor should switch positions. I think the guys who say that are just dumb, just because the kid is fast, doesn’t mean he can run a route or catch the ball, and he surely couldn’t beat NFL coverage regularly. I have said in the past based on what I saw, that I did not believe The Legend could become a legit NFL QB, I also said I didn’t like that we used that draft pick on him. The kid is working his ass off to do just that, so maybe he can. I have backed off of that, and have said since the I watched him play SD that he shows a lot of potential. I still believe he needs to improve his passing. Say what you want about that SD game but he completed just 7 passes to WR’s. That is not good. He needs to improve. Period. Why does that make me a hater? Because I don’t agree with you that The Legend is the best QB to ever walk the earth I am a hater? You are ridiculous.

    is i because i called out bcz and asked him to give his opinion if the passes were “deep’ or required arm strength?

    Is bcz connected to the mods?

    Hmmmmm

    LOL! yeah. i’m sure that nfl talent evaluators look at wins and losses rather than skills. IT’S TV DUMMY! they have to dumb it down for the housewives and b@uce’s of the world.

    Hey RobertaMR….is Donovan McNabb a NFL expert?

    Watch how you answer this because I’m about to blast ya

    ********

    no. not a talent evaluator. an ex-player who has some knowledge of the qb position but is like a lot of players, in that they have skewed opinions, especially when it comes to themselves, and they generally repeat what they have been told by coaches they have had.

    some players rise above this. players like steve young or tom jackson and many others.

    Are you seriously trying to same I am connected to the moderators now? WTF is wrong with dude?

    I didn’t say The Legend NEVER threw a 50 yard pass. I said the 1 you are siting against Detroit was not a deep pass. It was a 28 yard pass with a lot of YAC.

    Say or post anything you want. I just watched the play with my own eyes, and I will post the link when I am not at work.

    you are in the archives making it plain that pryor isnt an nfl qb and have suggested he switch positions
    *********
    Another LIE. I NEVER said Pryor should switch positions.

    I have said in the past based on what I saw, that I did not believe The Legend could become a legit NFL QB
    ========================

    excuse me if i mixed you up with the switch positions crowd.

    yet your take that he could never be an nfl qb still stands, and is tantamount to saying he should switch positions isnt it?

    bottom line you dont think he can pay qb in the nfl and none of his completions runs or td passes in pre season or week 17 will change your mind.

    so i will look you up if pryor lights it up

    Haha. I don’t get offended over stupid stuff like that.

    But it does remind me … We have a saying here:

    Why doesn’t Texas slide into the Gulf of Mexico? Because Oklahoma sucks.

    No offense intended to OklahomaRaider if he’s around today.

    After posting that and giving credit to Dan Jenkins(well respected and storied SI writer) I googled him to verify he wrote ‘Baja Oklahoma’ and he was born in Ft. Worth. Hah!

    LOL… that’s fvckin rich… I’m a moderator now. HAHAHAHA. You are insane Mistic.

  • dr_robert

    b@uce u ignoramus. i’m aware that many times , people put up the record of a qb.

    it doesn’t make it a valuable or even sensible thing to do.

    palmer’s failure here was mainly due to his team sucking. he had some personal failings on the field too but the team’s wins and losses were a reflection of the poor talent as a whole.

    bruce arians, coach of the year, chose him as his qb in his first year as a head coach.

    was troy aikman a great qb? no. but he stupidly gets credit for the cowboys being winners.
