Raiders emphasize getting out of huddle

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Friday, September 13th, 2013 at 11:33 am in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders began their final practice Friday in preparation for the Jacksonville Jaguars, and a likely emphasis once the media was excused was being expedient in the huddle.

It was an issue on a few occasions against Indianapolis, particularly after long runs by quarterback Terrelle Pryor. Twice the Raiders had to burn time outs rather than take a delay of game penalty.

“It wasn’t something that was a problem for us during the preseason,’’ offensive coordinator Greg Olson said Thursday. “It was (his) first time for us, live on the road, starting in this system. He executed well in practice, there were a few glitches in the game, so we’re trying to get those cleaned up this week.’’

Pryor conceded getting in and out of the huddle on plays after he ran the ball were a problem. The Raiders had two delay of game penalties and twice had to call time outs Pryor ran the ball.

“It gets tiring. I had 13 runs and I a couple of them were pretty long, and on top of that I’m tying to lose guys and find players downfield to throw the ball,’’ Pryor said. “So you just get winded and I’ve got to keep getting better at that.

“I think I’m just so psyched up in in the game and in the moment, and I’m huffing and puffing and trying to get the way out. I’ve got to get better at that, and we will be better at that this week. I can promise that.’’

– Tight end David Ausberry was working with an athletic trainer on a separate field as practice began and likely will be declared out of the Jacksonville game.

Tackle Menelik Watson, who reportedly underwent arthroscopic knee surgery (the Raiders will not confirm) will also be out.

Strong safety Tyvon Branch and place kicker Sebastian Janikowski were both at practice.

– Media at practice included a television station from Ohio out to cover the Ohio State-Cal game. Pryor, who left Ohio State after being suspended in a memorabilia for cash scandal, is three years into a five-year ban where he cannot have contact with the program.

    You guys are talking draft, like Pryor’s going to last the year, and get us 7 wins, or whatever?
    No way in hell he lasts the year.
    He will have to have two major changes, if that were to happen.
    Get a lot better touch on his passes.
    And stop taking off at the first glint of a pass rush.

  • raidersince87

    @666 you can have a qb who puts up stats but just isnt a winner, his intangibles arnt there, never were, not even at usc..

  • raiderjhawk

    Most Valuable player on D this weekend… Maiava.

  • raiderjhawk

    I think CWood gets a pick this weekend too.

  • raidersince87

    theres going to be a draft whether he finishes or not..i think he lasts the year..he was very durable and never had a major injury 3 years in the Big 10..

  • raiderjhawk

    He’ll last.

  • JLofty

    I can’t and won’t speak for anyone else but for me this WRONG.
    First this year and last year are not the same. THIS year is still undecided.
    Second, I liked Palmer just fine. Can’t argue his career tendencies however.
    Third, while YOU think Pryor has a low ceiling, others, such as myself and many of my Raider fan pals think he different.
    But mostly we root FOR Raider QBs not against them. ESPECIALLY when they are young and working their b@lls off to get better and WIN GAMES!

    The only difference between us losing games by a Palmer INT and a Pryor INT is the fans perception!

    Fans love Pryor so they accept his faults…

  • Whoknows

    For curiosity sake, who gets the vote for best defensive player last week?
    I’d say TP for keeping the D of the field.

    Last year we had a Qb that would move the chains with his arm but the defense and
    =======================================
    where have you been 666 Misty Brown missed you had a meltdown earlier this morning

  • theghostronin79

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

    Read a huge write up on Clowney yesterday…….. Talking about how he’s got some Diva in him. He doesn’t practice too hard, goes by a different set of rules than the rest of the team. His conditioning is a factor because he’s got this “Whatchyou gonna do? Bench me?” (With that GTFOH hand wave off)

    But damn……He comes up big when he needs to, and when it matters the most.

    I’m just not interested in getting any slackers in here…Even IF their play is sometimes Stellar.

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

    IF (and I’m saying if) Clowney is deliberately slacking because he’s sure he’ll be the #1 pick next April, he’s either an idiot or he’s getting some very, very bad advice. If he’s slacking now, how bad it will be once he gets his big payday?

    ===========

    That’s what I’m sayin…..

    Plus, I’d think he’d need to go to a team that he didn’t feel he was already the BEST defender on. Like last years Baltimore team…

    Have a hard time seeing him get outta line or take plays of with guys like Lewis, Suggs, Ngnata, and Reed putting him in his place…..

    Or somewhere with a strong enough coach. Ours is still growing, and he’s got NO clout. If DA had a Lombardi or 2 behind him, guarantee his words would carry more weight.

    What’s funny to me is the Patriots playing their first two games against teams that weren’t very good last year and both with rookies starting QB this year… and barely got out with W’s.

    Before his sophomore year began he ran a 4.33 40-yard dash in a race against Ray Small and many others. He was the fastest Buckeye in 2009.

    Let’s just say that Moore and Ford are KR’s and not
    #1 or #2 WR’s. This has been a problem with the Raiders having no true #1 or #2 WR’s! Look at Brady last night and Smith! They also don’t have the weapons needed! But more so Oakland! You have to go all the way back to promoting Jerry Porter after Brown and Rice were let go! We have not had productive WR’s since then! All wanting to be promoted up but not capable of doing the job! Moore is a PR and Ford is a KR! anything you get beyond that is extra! We need Wide Out’s! No QB will be successful with those two as only options! Go Raiders! Keep it Real!

    The potentially best WR on the Raiders is currently playing QB. It’s likely what Al drafted him to become, just like Porter and Curry before him.

    Don’t believe that? Look at the types of QBs that Al drafted or acquired over his last decade plus of rule. Big, strong armed, pocket passers. JaFatass, Jeff George, Andrew Walter, Jason Campbell, Steve Bueurlein, Culpepper, Kerry Collins … it’s pretty clear that he was always looking to relive the days of The Mad Bomber.

    Meanwhile, Al had a long track record of spotting out of position athletes and turning them into stars by moving them. I think he took pride in outsmarting the league by seeing value others did not through conversion.

    Nobody can say for sure what his intent was, but his patterns above indicate that he was drafting the athlete and not necessarily the QB.

    Playing not your best and still winning is the sign of a darn good football team. IMO

    An ugly win is still a win.

    Sorta like bangin an ugly (Really old ODB) chick is still getting laid!

  • raidersince87

    The bills and jets in particular have up and coming D’s like ours..plus the inexperience at wr for the pats probably led to those type of games for brady..plus a qb isnt going to be on target 100% of the time (take note pryor haters) otherwise it wouldnt be a sport because everybody could do it..
