Sorry, I don't agree about Pryor or Vick. Almost every pass Pryor threw against the Broncos was short. Pocket passer is not his natural game, he's a runner first and a passer second. That just makes our offence 1 dimensional and once opponents take away his ability to run they are prepared to play the odds that any passes he attempts are going to be incomplete.
He spends an awful lot of time running backwards from the line of scrimmage costing us yards and seems almost pig-headed when it comes to giving up on a play and throwing the ball away. He's has what, 2 training camps and 1 regular season and he looks worse now than when he started in September. I know everyone wants Pryor to be the guy because he was Al's last pick but realistically this guy is a bust. I'd be interested to see Pryor moved from the QB spot to an RB spot and let's really see what he can do with those legs.
As for Michael Vick we need to be looking for the next new solid QB not another has-been who has had limited success. Vick is ranked 84th amongst playoff starting QBs with a 2 & 3 record and that's not someone to rebuild a team around. While his regular season career record of 58-48-1 is a winning record his best years are behind him, he hasn't played a full season since 2006 and only played 7 games this year and 10 games last year.
I don't think McGloin is the answer either but, in the absence of anyone better, I'd rather try to move forward with McGloin than I would with Pryor and I don't want to see Vick anywhere near Oaktown.
Raiders have never developed a QB in their history.
I'm not going to fault Pryor for that because it's just fact. whether it's Russell, Maravich or Andrew Walter we just draft bums.
If you say Pryor doesn't have it after 8 starts & a doghouse decision by Dennis which flushed the Raiders chance at competing this year then that's your right. I just believe if we are going to give this pathetic coach another season to show us what he has got then Pryor has earned the right to come back & compete for the starting job.
