The Raiders are on the field today for yet another practice in Napa, with the media permitted access at 2:50 p.m. PDT.
So, stay tuned for Tout videos, Tweets, Twitpics, blog posts and a story in the paper. Beat writer Jerry McDonald has the day off, so I’ll be doing double time keeping up with everything Raider today.

    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 wasn’t talking about Madden, but this year I am interested how they have Pryor and Flynn scored.

    Yea, I know the WC offense is back. I personally like this offense a lot. But if you notice on my post I said IF THEY BOTH WERE DEAD EVEN. Now if Flynn is doing better in the system they have in place, then obviously he would be the better choice to start. But if Pryor shows he can throw the short ball, than I think he should get the nod.

    well at least you can admit he has no arm strength, now all we have to do is throw 40-60 3 yard outs a game, since there will be 8 in the box and 9 at times to stop dmc…

    Was that the same play? Because “taking a pass away” and “well placed throw” are two complete different things in my book. lol…. goes to show how different perspectives and opinions influence what you see on the field.

    Personally I don’t trust a person that recently admitted he didn’t know how to throw a pass until just this year to run a WCO.

    His slant passes vs SD were HORRIFYING. There should have been two picks minimum.

    Flynns the guy until he proves he cannot run this offense… sorry.

    Retweeted by Vic Tafur

    Flynn doesn’t have that “in the bag”?

    These tweets don’t make it seem like Pryor is a guy who can’t play QB.

    He needs to improve his short passes it appears but chicks dig the long ball. Most fans dig it too.

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

    Al Davis football is the long ball. Raiders may be headed in that direction. Flynn is no Montana. Once teams start watching him on film, he may struggle. Pryor has much greater upside with a stronger arm and running ability. Coaches will teach him how to read and adjust.

    The coaching staff won’t take Pryor seriously until Flynn gets injured. It’s how Kaepernick got his foot in the door and it’s how Pryor will get his.
