    Pryor will be the starter if the Raiders are trying to win.

    Flynn is a limited dink n dunk, low mobility, no deep ball QB.

    If Pryor improved on is intermediate and dink n dunk throws he will be the starter. He brings way more to the table. Especially how defenses will have to scheme or try to scheme with Pryor in there. Different ball game then with “dink n dunk” Flynn.
    Teams will already be keying on the running game and a dink and dunk passing attack will be bottled up along with the running game. Flynn does not offer enough variety especially with this offense’s personnel. The O line is a big “?” and the Raiders’ receiving corp are not short route runners. They are most effective at going deep and stretching the field.
    ———-
    Agreed if Pryor gets better he should get a chance to start

    John Middlekauff ‏@JohnMiddlekauff 5m #Raiders WR Brice Butler is having himself a camp, making play regardless who’s covering him

    =========

    Butler is a polished receiver imo and will see plenty action this season.

    Btw, has anyone considered yet that “Allen paying close attention to the details” will see us trading Matt Flynn to a team in need of a QB if something should happen to one of them, and Allen/Olsen end up realizing Pryor is the best bet?

    So who would you rather have, a guy that can throw deep, run if he has to, has chemistry built up with WRs from offseason get togethers, and that will have you at the edge of your sit because you don’t know if he will score a TD or throw an INT, or a guy that will always throw the safe throw on short routes, it’s new to the team, but that’s ok because you can know what to expect from him every time, and will try to run but will most likely never get that first down with his feet.

    Which one will you rather have?

    >>>

    If we were playing Madden, Pryor hands down.

    I want to win actual games though… and a lunch pail guy that can make all the short throws demanded of him in the WCO (You DO know that is the offense that is installed, right?) is my guy.

    If Flynn can’t make the short throws with Gannon-like consistency, by all means the job should go to Pryor… hands down.

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

    I hope for both Flynn and Pryor to succeed. It would be for the best of the team. And then you let the best of the two be the starter. So if I hear Flynn is doing good, I’m all for it. If I hear Pryor is doing good, then I’m all for that.

    Though if they were both dead even, I would go with Pryor, because he gives you that extra dimension where he can use his feet to make plays. He is more of a dynamic player. That’s not taking anything away from Flynn, it’s just saying that Pryor can run better.

    I guess we will have to wait for the preseason games to see if he can make you a believer. If that is even possible….lol

  • the famous dr robert

    As soon as I hear someone try to act like flynn’s record day was less than great, I know they’re stupid. Or simply have no clue about football.

    If u can’t admit he had a great day. Without adding anything negative. U have no credibility as a football evaluator. At all.
