Raiders 38, Seahawks 21 — end of 3rd quarter

Giorgio Tavecchio accounted for all the scoring in the third quarter when he converted a 47-yard field goal for the Raiders.
Not much of note happened in the quarter, as the game turned in to an extended performance by Terrelle Pryor and Matt McGloin, the two who combined for 15 of Oakland’s starts at quarterback last season.
Both are their respective teams’ No. 3 quarterback now, with that being solidified for the Raiders by Derek Carr’s stellar play in the first half for the Raiders.
Still, the Raiders might need McGloin at some point this season, so coach Dennis Allen has to be thrilled by getting him most of three quarters of action tonight.
The Raiders defense got in some good work against Pryor, which figures to help them in the regular-season opener against the New York Jets on Sept. 7, given the Jets also use some of the read-option stuff that the Seahawks favor.
In retrospect, how well wide receiver Denarius Moore played in the first half can’t be overstated. He caught three passes for 58 yards and made the most of his extended playing time, with Rod Streater and James Jones on the sideline taking it all in.

    Get ready for it. And if Schaub has a confidence problem, obviously, playing on a short leash is going to rattle him further. Could be an ugly start.

  • Back-N-Black

    If Carr was pushed to start against NY and threw 3 ints in a crushing defeat, how far would that set him back? If Schaub is healthy I think he gets the start, but would not be surprised to see Carr get reps by game 3 with starts after the bye if Schaub looks flat.

    After Pryor got injured,right?

  • Howard Benner

    Carr even absorbed a hit right after releasing a throw & didn’t contort his body while getting hit. . .

    He displayed a quick release, threw without having to replant, thus displaying his arm talent & athleticism. . .

    He looked the part tonight; but the defense was vanilla. . .but I was encouraged by the proposition of what he can become. . .& the fact he possesses awareness, athleticism & ample arm talent. . .can definitely play in this league. . .

    Still prefer Bortles, but that’s who I am. . .

  • Back-N-Black

    Some dude on USC team lied and told media he hurt his ankle jumping from the balcony to save his nephew from drowning in an attempt to hide how he really injured his ankle.

    That’s how these simple minded clowns think.If you agree with or like one person you must hate the other.Look what they are doing now.They’ve fallen in love with 1 QB so they want the other QB cut even though he could be helpful in mentoring the young guys.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    New post.

  • Rico Stifler

    Exactly. I mean, we’re gonna pay Schaub that 8M either way, so might as well just keep him versus letting him get more money from another team that signs him as their starter/backup like the Rams.

  • Rico Stifler

    What if Carr outplays Bortles by a good margin when they are both starting QBs?

  • Howard Benner

    you should seen it from Seattle. . .as refreshing as a cold beer on an 85 degree day. . .

    That slow sucking sound emitted was the hot air escaping the collective Seaslug faithful. . .

  • Howard Benner

    Did you witness DA’ fire tonight? He was coaching up the player’s mistakes. . .with a fire I have yet to see him exhibit. . .

  • Rico Stifler

    No. I didn’t pay much attention to the sideline this game.

  • Howard Benner

    He stepped in lucky dung. . .better to be lucky than good. . .

  • Howard Benner

    In the fourth “exhibition” game. . .against a vanilla scheme. . .with many starters & key players on the sideline. . .@ home. . .

    i do have more confidence facing the proposition of traveling to New Jersey. . .with a young QB who actually can throw off his back foot with zip. . .

    Still worried about the accompanying “baptism under fire” Carr will face. . .if declared the starter. . .

    unless Schaub’s tendinitis is “elbowmageddon. . .

  • Howard Benner

    My fraction of French must be showing; haven’t shaved my legs or pits. . .ever. . .

    But I have great pins. . .

  • Howard Benner

    One step @ a time. . .it’s a process to excuse the vet QB for the more talented youngster. . .

  • Howard Benner

    You got this one. . .

    My comment would merely be a case of piling on. . .

  • Howard Benner

    That was the intangible ingredient I noticed the most. . .

  • Howard Benner

    He has way too much confidence in his running skills. . .when he rolls out he exponently shrinks the field, thus reducing the chance for success. . .

    For a guy that should extend more plays he actually achieves the opposite; he gives plays away. . .

  • Howard Benner

    That was classic. . .he obviously needs another pre season game; pointed the wrong way on one occasion & announced penalties on the wrong team twice. . .

    Is he on steroids? HGH?!

    Can he get suspended?

  • Howard Benner

    You know my stance well enough to realize i don’t even entertain that as a plausabe outcome. . .

    I could say I don’t deal in hypotheticals, but that would be disingenuous. . .

    Please promise to be this the entire f%&king season … It gives us no end of pleasure. Its a meaningless game, therefore you’re critique is equally meaningless.

  • Thomas Bennett

    His decision making is slow and often bad, his accuracy is spotty, and I was wrong – he didn’t last until Saturday.

  • Howard Benner

    Only technically. . .I thought the fourth stringer outplayed him. . .
    Now he has decisions to make; CFL, Arena league, position change or join Tim Tebow as a college football analyst. . .

  • Thomas Bennett

    Agreed. Daniels sparked that offense when he came in. They were quicker in and out of the huddle, he was more decisive after the snap, and he had a quicker release. Pryor is an amazing athlete, but he hasn’t put it all together to be a NFL QB…and if he hasn’t done it by now, history has shown its not going to happen.

  • Howard Benner

    I was hoping Pete Carroll would hold onto Pryor & release Bennett & the Raiders would pick him up. . .

    Trade Schaub to the Lambs & bring in David Carr as the third string QB. . .
