Allen sticking with McGloin, at least for short term

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.

    your best chance is to pay the down payment and closing costs of any potential buyers

  • spiff

    no killer instinct. we been playing not to lose this whole season. it’s disgusting .

  • RaidO

    Oakland’s inability to make half-time adjustments has been a major problem for Oakland’s coaching staff. While their game plans seem to get the Raiders off to a fast start, they have been wasted in the second half as their opposition starts to figure things out.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    What potential buyers?

  • Jim Jesus

    Are we ever going to see a press conference about why we won? So tired of Allens schtick

  • RaidO

    Can’t score in the second half. Game planning and coaching? All damn season…

    Coming into Thursday’s game, the Raiders were 29th in the league and just ahead of the Arizona Cardinals, Kansas City Chiefs andJacksonville Jaguars in second half scoring.

  • Jim Jesus

    same as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever was, burnin down the fvckin house. SICK OF LOSING!!!

  • RaidO

    The QB has not mattered when it comes to 2nd half scoring= COACHING

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    We def struggle more so in the 2nd half, but just last week we scored more points in the 2nd half than the first half.

  • Rifflicks

    or execution

  • plunkhead

    My best buddy in HS fell victim to sports bettings. For a few years before he lost everything and never recovered, he drove a taxi, hung out at the El Cortez and bet on anything.
    I have lots of stories but my fav is him coming over to watch the NBA all star game sometime in the late 80′s.

    The big joke was bet the opposite of Billy.

    He had the under and it was the highest scoring game in history

  • KoolKell

    The same P’woods here defending a loss.

  • willy91137

    is frustrating as hell to watch them but when it starts getting like this were getting close we need more pass rush so we don’t have to rush our defensive backs up

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    26th in total scoring period.
    Thanks to the last few weeks, we were 29th in total scoring a few weeks ago.
    No sense splitting this as a 1st half,2nd half thing.
    We are just a bad offense.

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    El Cortez? That was the last mob owned place left in LV.
    Billy is lucky he didn’t end up in a concrete mixer.

  • plunkhead

    Bo Pellini just texted Raiders. com with his resume
    Any bugeaters here want him to coach?

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    Maybe the Lbers or something

  • Rifflicks

    Nebraska sucks

  • Jim Jesus

    where is Billy now Plunk?

  • plunkhead

    His mom worked there for years after they shut down the kitty cat ranch out by Alamo

  • Enif

    If Ford comes down with that catch all of you would be calling him Mc-Glow-in.

  • plunkhead

    He passed away two years ago. Could never quit drinking drugging. Same with brother Tom from HS. Died two weeks apart, both from chirrosis

  • PlunkforHOF

    Plunk#1.. how did the garden shake out this year?

  • Rifflicks

    I’d be just as happy if he’d have kept the Defender from coming down with it

  • Enif

    The fact that Ford is even suited up astonishes me.

  • plunkhead

    Before you ask, his mom was Old in 74 and she was a maid. We use to drive out there so Bill could get spending money in HS

  • marks hair

    Ford should not have been on the field.. I mean roster

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    Never been there, but did stop in the “Shady Lady” one time on my way up to see a client in Incline Village.
    That was a sight to see, lol.

  • RaidO

    Does Dennis Allen get one more year in Oakland?

    It may depend on who is available and interested..

  • Rifflicks

    he gets one more year no matter what you people on the blog think

  • PlunkforHOF

    Where was the “Shady Lady”? There was a bar I played at here in Reno called that, but never heard of a cat house by that name.

  • spiff

    yeah, let’s throw the ball to our shortest receiver….

  • plunkhead

    Amazing. I hope to never grow indoors again. I have a mom from the best plant and it is one hitter quitter. Cured dank

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    Beatty or near there

  • Jim Jesus

    sad

  • Enif

    maybe our shortest receiver needs to play like the athlete we saw his rookie season

  • PlunkforHOF

    Outdoor is the way my brother! My 3 trees yielded 4 lbs. Tangerine Dream seems to be the favorite, followed by Purple Wreck.

  • KoolKell

    I don’t think DA will be back. But the Raiders with a lot of cash will be available to Coaches and Players.

  • Rifflicks

    Yes Indeed…It’s Ford’s fault that the DB made a spectacular play on the ball

  • M.Shorter

    He getting another year. Our team has maybe 2 or 3 impact players and we’ve in almost every game this year. But I will say he has lost of games too. Like the Cowboys game

  • spiff

    pretty much, or lack of…………….

  • RaidO

    Hey it’s a fair question..DA does not know how to make adjustments in the 2nd half of games..

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    Not if they don’t win another game.

  • Rifflicks

    you don’t know that

  • Rifflicks

    We’ll see

  • plunkhead

    Did you see where I asked Purv about friends from Vegas who moved to reno area after school. Ever hear of the Tanners? They were carpenters by trade

  • PlunkforHOF

    One of those lonely outpost places.. driven by, but never stopped. Went to the Mustang up here a few times in the old days. Usually driving a customer from the old MGM out there.

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    If they finish going 1-8, he will be the first HC fired in the offseason.
    No we will see.

  • Rifflicks

    depends how the games are lost

  • PlunkforHOF

    Nope.. do know a few folks in the trades though.
