Allen sticking with McGloin, at least for short term

Share

ALAMEDA – Raiders coach Dennis Allen said Friday that he intends to stick with Matt McGloin as his starting quarterback for now. However, Allen also wants to get another look at Terrelle Pryor before this season ends.
It’s all part of Allen and general manager Reggie McKenzie gathering as much information as possible on their quarterback situation before they head into the offseason.
“I don’t think he’s done anything to play himself out of that position,” Allen said of McGloin.
At the same time, Allen stopped short of anointing McGloin the unquestioned starter the final four games.
Most important, the Raiders need to have a firm grasp on what they have in McGloin and Pryor. To that end, Allen said he wants to see more of Pryor this season, too.
“We need to have a good evaluation of what we have at the quarterback position as we move forward,” Allen said. “These last four weeks will be instrumental in us being able to do that.”
Next year’s NFL draft is regarded as a quarterback-rich one. The Raiders can’t afford to overlook that position if they aren’t sold on either McGloin or Pryor as the long-term answer at a position that has been unsettled since Rich Gannon retired.
Pryor backed up McGloin the past two games, and he is the only other quarterback on the roster now that the Raiders waived rookie Tyler Wilson, a fourth-round draft pick in April.

    I love that Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie spent the first seven minutes of the second half eating cookies in the media dining area.

  • marks hair

    need to evaluate our young quarterbacks…. maybe you should have thought of that last year títs..

  • KoolKell

    Of course that conservative p-wood would say such.

    No, McGloin is not at fault.

  • RaidingTexas

    Not easy to justify sitting a $15 million QB to do that. Thanks a lot, Huebris.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    I can’t figure out if you’re just a jerk or are mentally ill. Probably a combination of both.

  • Rico Stifler

    Taking bets.
    Terrell Pryor will not be in the league next year.
    Give you 10-1.
    Sorry Terrell, but you just aren’t an NFL caliber qb.
    Admitting at the beginning that you never knew how to properly throw was one thing.
    Proving it beyond a shadow of a doubt is another.

  • KoolKell

    I can’t win with a 21-7 lead btch?

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    He’s sabotaging his career, Tim Tebow-style, by refusing to move to another position. See also Eric Couch and Tommy Frazier.

  • KoolKell

    That btch can’t do a lead.

  • Rico Stifler

    Kell? Can you explain why it is you spent your whole anniversary on this blog?
    Better yet, tell us why you’re so stupid to tell everyone it’s your anniversary, and then post the whole day and night?

  • KoolKell

    21-7 lead with a good defense, btch?

  • Rico Stifler

    LOL. Kell is drunk.
    Again.

  • willy91137

    they were low-fat cookies LOL

  • KoolKell

    You tell me btch

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    You’re implying he’s ever sober. No evidence as such.

  • willy91137

    And this is the start of his single life

  • KoolKell

    Btch, did you enjoy my anniversary, in a good way?

    Ha ha ha ha ha.

    Translation: The junior Davis has spoken.

  • Rico Stifler

    Well, if laughing at you, while watching others laugh at you is enjoyment?
    Yeah, sure.

  • willy91137

    There is your wife Kelly is she on the phone probably talking to a divorce lawyer

  • KoolKell

    Yeah, how many leads do we need for Tittts to blow?
    -sexually speaking

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Or maybe they just want to see if he’s learned anything and can progress to the next level. Not everything is a conspiracy theory.

  • Rico Stifler

    I suspect Alz.
    Seriously.
    You look at his last 20 posts.
    Not one makes sense, or has an original thought.
    It’s like that guy at the park, sitting on the bench, talking to himself.

  • RTF916

    “we just want to see if he’s learned anything and can progress to the next level”

    Good line! Good! Dennis should have used it. hahaha

  • KoolKell

    Dumbitch, why is that Your Life

  • Blackholepriest

    They know they not continue to screw this up. McG hasn’t shown them he is the undisputed starter. TP has also won some big games for them. And they know damn well the Oline was a mess when he was starting and Holmes is head and shoulders better than anyone TP played with.

    Everything considered TP deserves another look now that the team is healthy………period.

    C Wood done?

    At least four times following the Oakland Raiders’ gut-punch 31-24 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, Charles Woodson referenced the future and spoke of the Raiders as “they” in said tense.

    As in, “they” will be without his services in the future.

    Shocking? It should not be. Woodson is a 16-year veteran on a one-year contract in his second tour of duty with the Raiders. A future Hall of Famer who has to be just torn apart by Oakland’s weekly meltdowns.

    Paging Woodson …

    “I just don’t think we’re quite there yet, as a team, but we’ve got some guys that will fight,” he said. “That’s great to see. Going forward they’ve got a lot to be happy about, as far as guys that they have, that they can build on, as far as the upcoming seasons to get this thing turned around.”

    Did you catch it? Here’s another

    “Offensively, we feel like they gave us enough to win, early on,” Woodson said of the 21-7 lead the Raiders held with 1:56 to play in the first half.

    “When you get leads, you’ve got to hold on to those leads to come out with victories. We haven’t learned how to do that yet. Like I said, I think they’ve got a great group of guys, some guys here that they can build on and get better.”

    OK, you had to see that one, right?

  • RTF916

    Owners are always involved with personnel decisions, ESPECIALLY the QB position, as they are the most vital to advertising. More common sense than a “conspiracy theory”.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Ladies and Gentlemen: This is the fine representation and professional attitude you can expect from Kane and Associates.

    And if O is reading this: I tried to be nice, but when Kell is being such a tone-deaf blowhard…

  • Rifflicks

    OR…they’ll let Prior QB fall on his face again to justify the ultimatum of converting him to a WR or being Cut.

  • Big games? We haven’t won a big game since week 16 of 2011.

  • I bet Pryor starts week 16, unless McGloin just completely lights it up, and depending on how TP does they will see who goes in week 17.

  • KoolKell

    Get a life btch

  • willy91137

    He’s talking about that big game San Diego in Oakland last month

  • Blackholepriest

    McG should’ve won that game with a two TD lead if he was everything they thought he was………period. TP has brought this team back from two TD deficit to lead the game. Was undefeated at home until the defense decided to take the day off.

    These two guys are almost neck and neck now. But who has the bigger upside? By this time next year TP will be the starter with McG providing solid backup work………..period

  • Was that a “big game”? I don’t really think there are any big games in October.
    Sad state of the Raiders if that is considered one.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    You’re the one who came on here insulting everyone. Not the other way around. Now go pay attention to the spouse for awhile.

  • KoolKell

    Wow, you bet Rommney would win too. Is that why you’re living in Alburquege?

  • I don’t know who has the better upside, but McGloin clearly has the better arm.
    Cork also just said as much in his live chat.

  • RaidO

    Would rather see Pryor finish the season. If he sucks he’s done. No more discussion

  • How about you bet me then?
    Put up or shut up.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    You mean Albuquerque?

  • plunkhead

    Don’t forget about about Tyler. You will rue another day

  • M.Shorter

    McG is a really good passer. Its his rookie year. By far ahead of Pryor in terms of a true NFL qb.

  • M.Shorter

    I dont get on here much anymore because most people here are clueless.

  • Blackholepriest

    Get a ova that can coach TP worth a dam and this isn’t even a competition. They wouldn.’t allow him to run the base offense until it was too late in camp. Give him a offseason in the base offseason then we ‘ll see the truth………period

    None of this gimmick crap!

  • Twitter accout is DOCUMENTED above .500 on the year there bubba against the spread.
    You would be wise to pay attention.

  • plunkhead

    Fear the MWC!!
    11 TD’s in the first half with time left
