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.

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

    Plenty of us said it when happened

    ——————
    At least we have a “winner” at qb….oh wait.

    Palmer haters were just either blind to their own hatred for the guy and just idiots.

    At least we have cap room next room. Maybe we can pick up another 2nd string QB.

    3 of 6 for 19 yds.
    2 picks?

    Oh geez..just heard Flynn is coming back in.
    Oh my

    Pryor, Reece, Rivera, Butler, and Moore should start.

    @@@@@@

    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.
    —————
    or maybe reggie got taken advantage of just like the fins owner crowed about

    @@@@@@@

    Really? So turning a 1 into a 1 and 2 when NOBODY else wanted to trade after the two tackles were picked was a bad move to you? Don’t is this shlt as an excuse to push your hate. To say that was a bad trade is ridiculous. We lost on the “point scale” but he got what he could. NOBODY that knows anything about football said that was a bad trade at the time. He got what he could get.

    I’m not defending Reggie. But that was NOT a bad move.

    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.

    Slob is a coward.
    If Flynn would have started out hot, the cowardly racist Slob would have been all over this board.
    Now he’s in the shadows, wondering what his racist ass can now say.

  • Twocents

    Perhaps Flynn would look better if we had an OL and a running game, but the man has no vision, he rarely sees the open man.
    Play Pryor. It probably won’t save us but at least it will be entertaining.

    Greg Papa is too much of a homer for my tastes, but, I can see why the dude took all his chips away from the Pryor-side of the table.

    He talked him up big on Chronicle Live after Cowboys game. But his tune started to change after Saints game.

    There are no encouraging signs from either Pryor or Flynn.

    I watched Rashad Jennings step up in pass protection only to let Peanut Tillman spin and slam Flynn to the ground on cornerback blitz. Pathetic effort all around by offense.

    keep the blinders on. THERES NOBODY ELSE. unless you wanna sh!t can 2013 and move toward draft 2014 for Teddy Bridgewater.

    And Pryor circus act gets another WR killed. Just as I’ve said they will for the entire offseason. You can’t throw ducks that hang WRs up.

    If Pryor starts, the WRs will not go up for balls for him after seeing this.

    Pryor kept the play alive for a few more seconds, through up a prayer and Streater came down with it. Yup… thats a modern day NFL offense.
