End 1st qtr: Bears 17, Raiders 0

It’s been all Chicago and the fans are restless and getting angry. Not without reason.

Raiders did zero offensively after a 15-yard Rashad Jennings run on first play. Defense can’t stop run or pass.

    think about it , reggie gave up more for matt Flynn than he got for a qb who threw for 4,000 yards.

    @@@@@@

    Tells you something about what the rest of the league thought about those 4,000 garbage yards, doesn’t it. And oh yea, $15 million a year. That may have also been a factor.

    “Pryor with his mobility dimension least gives the team a chance, not a finished product but better than Flynn. Time to get drunk enough to forget this game….”

    “The entire first team offense should stay out there with Pryor”

    “Pryor looked okay that drive, but Bears played prevent defense. First drive he looked about as bad as Flynn. Answer need a new O-Line.”

    “Allen needs to man up to Reggie and tell him TP is our only chance with this offensive line.”

    “Crazy idea…let DA finish the season and hire Lovie Smith next year when we have a chance to sign decent players”

  • J Hill

    Hayden took all of 3 plays to get back in gear.

    His 3rd play, he made a play that should have resulted in a pick.

    EXACTLY what we pay him for. Causing turnovers.

    I saw them going away from him and towards Jenkins.

  • Jackie Bibby

    Flynn is veteran trash, pryor is a young player with upside who needs playing time to develop.We (pryor fans) expect him to make mistakes so he can learn from them, flynn doesn’t get the same benefit because he’s supposed to be the savvy seasoned vet.

    Pryor might be our only hope. Line blocks better, defense has to stay in their lanes. TP helps the sorry arse line.

    You missed Pryor’s first drive where he went 3 and out (-1 yards on the drive) and they punted.

    Typical TP jock holders – only seeing what they want.

    Pryor and Flynn both suck. Too bad some of you idiots don’t see that.

    The one tackle he has made consisted of Forte power bombing him into the dirt after a 10 yard gain.

    Is anyone really surprised.

    Our offense was 9th in the league and now could be as bad as 2006. For what??????

    Our defense is just as bad.

    He’s thrown two balls that should’ve been intercepted.

    I can’t believe people actually think Pryor is “hope”. There is no hope at QB for this team. It’s Dmac or nothing for 2013.

    DA is a horrible coach. Should of had Pryor with the ones in practice and preseason. Should have been at least spliting time with Flynn. Enough with that “package” talk. He needs to be running the offense. They did not prepare Pryor correctly. If they did he would already be named the starter.

    Flynn sucks.

  • R8erEduc8er

    New poster here. Just wanted to say phuck Flynn and DA. Roll with Pryor and don’t look back. As for Olson, mix it the phuck up man! Enuff with the run, run, pass. And it’s sad that we can’t run a fricking screen. It’s the only way we can bust a big one because the opposing team’s defense has their ears pinned back knowing our oline is trash. And our defense is basically Nick Roach and the secondary. Our dline is nonexistent. It’s looking like 0-16 fella. I’d roll with RM for at least one more season. He created the cap space so he deserves to spend it. DA, hit the bricks! Hopefully it’s David Shaw or Texas A&M’s coach with the team moving to L.A. next season. With Flynn, we’re 0-16 and every home game will be empty! Believe that!

  • lefty12

    Only saw the last 7 minutes of the half,but from listening to the radio and watching the end DB 21 was much wore than Hayden;Flynn was worse than Pryor.Lets see Pryor start the 3rd,then give McGloin and Wilson the 2nd half of the 3rd and the 4th period.We might end with Pryor-1,McGloin-2,and Wilson-3 as our QBs.Also,Ford is leaving right off where he ended last pre-season-dropping balls.What a shame-Ford can’t catch and D.Moore is a scatter brain-and they could both be good WRs.BTW,it wouldn’t surprise me at all if the 1st int Flynn threw,Moore made the wrong read.And before you attack me,Kurt Warner said the same thing.

    thats a tough question to answer…

    Ford is not a wide receiver.

    He should stick to returning kicks.

    I’ll admit, I really thought we’d at least be competitive.

    Oh my gosh, no one ever say Pryor should start ever again. I thought Flynn was bad and hoped to see TP come in. TP came in AND LOOKED WORSE.

    2-14 would be a miracle.

    Take off the blinders folks, both Flynn and Pryor are questionable starters.

    is it 2006 all over again?

    dr rob = zymurge

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    Flynch proved he is not the man.

    Now it’s Pryor’s turn to show up or it’s next man up…

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNoi_wwzbtQ Zymurge

    In the first half for Pryor we have:

    1 – shoulda been pick, that was an easier catch for the safety than the one people say Ford shoulda caught

    1 – poor decision middle dump for 8 yards that took the first 25 seconds off a 55 second two minute drill

    1 – mediocre run where he shoulda dashed out of bounds for a gain of 2 but instead used an extra 3 or so seconds to get a few yards in a very low percentage big gain situation

    1 – good pass on a seam route against a deep prevent where it was the right play call

    1 – not so good hanging throw where he stared down his target and tipped the safety, despite facing a 3 man rush and plenty of time to let the play develop

    Same thing we’ve been seeing all along. Overall poor decision making that some times allows him to make a good throw on the right play call (by the OC) but more often is ineffective. And this is all before defenses are starting to gear for his tendencies after watching film on him.

    Flynn definitely was not very good this game and shows that he’s not good enough to carry a team when they have poor pass blocking and little running threat.

    Pryor was no better so far. His first series against most the Bears first string was a virtual turnover. He then failed to drive for a TD for the second time in the easiest situation Raiders QBs have faced against starters, where Flynn is 1 for 1.

    I seriously think we’re going to see McGloin end the season as the starter. Flynn will have a short leash, Pryor will be exposed for his limitations, and McGloin will get a chance in a season that is already dead by game 5 or 6.
