Raiders sign OT Tony Pashos

Share

The Raiders added another tackle to their thin offensive line Monday with the addition of veteran Tony Pashos.

Pashos, 33, has played in 89 games with 67 starts with the Baltimore Ravens (2003 through 2006), Jacksonville Jaguars (2007-2008), San Francisco 49ers (2009) and Cleveland Browns (2010-2011).

He was an offseason addition with the Washington Redskins before being released.

Pashos started 12 games for the Browns in 2011 and 31 of 32 games for Jacksonville in 2007 and 2008.

With the Raiders waiving Alex Barron to make room for Pashos, they still have only three healthy offensive tackles. The other two are starters Menelik Watson and Khalif Barnes.

Jared Veldheer is out following surgery with a torn triceps and is eligible to be , designated for return list Tuesday, meaning he will miss a minimum of seven games. That would open up an additional roster spot.

    All Raider fans need to unite now and get behind Allen, Reggie and Pryor and show support. Pryor is now the QB. Time to move on and put the Flynn squabbling to bed. No more crying. It’s Pryors ball. Lets go.

    >>>

    I will show support as usual by wearing Raider gear, and watching every game, but I will not “get behind” Allen and Reggie until they SHOW IMPROVEMENT.

    Everything they have done so far is a step back. Why should I get behind that? I don’t wish to become the new Detroit Lions.
    ————

    I think we are actually a step or two behind the Lions at this point, I mean they do have Megatron, Stafford, and a recent playoff appearance.

  • I’m far from convinced that Pryor starts. There’s too much evidence to contrary. First one reporter states that no media is allowed to see the starting 1st unit while another claims Pryor drilling with them. Smoke screen city.

    Allen knows that his best shot is to keep the decision in his back pocket just as long as he can get away with — which is until the Vegas boys make him disclose so that they can set the odds. He’s doing everything in his power to not show anything, which means there’s nothing to see and report on yet. Anything supposedly reported is subterfuge.

    I’m not banking either way because like the rest of you, I don’t know. The difference between me and many is that I admit that I don’t know and don’t pretend that I do.

    Meanwhile, the 4th preseason game followed a pattern that indicates Flynn is the starter. Many teams rest their starter entirely in game 4 and use some excuse like a “sore arm from camp”. NO TEAM ever plays their starter more than quarter. Pryor played the whole half despite having guys like McGloin and Wilson that needed a deeper look based on the way they handled their decision on which to keep.

    The argument that Pryor had a chance to win the job in the 4th game might make sense. Problem is he stunk up the joint against the #1s and then continued to smell bad against the #2s. That’s not winning a job. That’s not even backing into one.

    If I had to guess I’d say the plan is as expected: Flynn starts and gets between 60-80% of the plays. Pryor is change of pace. Indy has to prepare for both equally without knowing which. Showing Pryor enough during the game forces the Jags to prepare for both. This is DA playing the best hand he is dealt, which is a pair of threes.

    ————————————-

    McGloin is not solid, though. Am I the only one who watched him play Thursday night? I know the game was out of hand by then, but surely at least one other Raider fan saw that atrocity of quarterbacking against Seattle scrubs. Jesus, he had two INTs and should have had two more if the Seahawk defense could catch better. He’s terrible and they’d be better off without a 3rd QB, then use the roster spot for more OT depth.

    When you’re the Patriots or 49ers, it’s OK to whiff on 4th rounders. When you’re basically an expansion team, it’s not.

    I know. We are closer to the lions than we’d like to believe. But let’s take it one game at a time. Anything thing less than 6 wins this year and I’d say we have a verdict.

    Bradshaw played in the 70s when it was a very different game. Few specialist, smaller playbooks, way less complex defenses.

    Show me one QB of Bradshaw’s intellect that has been a top 10 in the 2000’s.

    The closest I can come up with is Vince Young, and he was a flash in the pan. Once teams knew what to look for (and when he no longer had the #1 running game) he was exposed for being too mentally slow to handle what the defenses threw at him.

    Coach Dennis Allen said Monday he will not say whether Terrelle Pryor or Matt Flynn will start the season opener at Indianapolis until game time for “competitive” reasons.
    Pryor did take the first snap with the first-team offense during a drill in the portion of practice open to the media. Flynn is healthy after missing last week with a sore right elbow.

    McGloin threw 2 picks against the Bears – and could have easily had 2 more… and 1 or 2 dropped picks against the Seahawks – in addition to a strip fumble this guy is very careless with the ball. He has thrown some nice passes at times when guys are wide open on crossing routes and he’s got plenty of time – but has turned the ball over alot and gets very small in the pocket – especially with any kind of a pass rush – he has to backpedal to get space to throw – he’s only about 6ft tall at most and has very small hands – smaller than Wilsons…

    From the small amount we’ve been allowed to see and the reports from mini-camp and OTA’s which were very positive, Wilson has looked like the better prospect and we dropped $500k to sign him.

    For some unknown reason, he got in DA’s doghouse like TJones and Ausberry did last season and like then he simply shut him down.
