Marty Schottenheimer isn’t interested in Terrelle Pryor

UFL_Destroyers_Schottenheimer_Football_0802d AP

The UFL generally is interested in former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor.  One UFL team, however, specifically isn’t.

Former Chiefs, Browns, Redskins, and Chargers coach (should we just like the teams he didn’t coach?) Marty Schottenheimer is the new coach of the Virginia Destroyers, the transplanted Florida Tuskers.  And Schottenheimer said during an appearance with “Johnny D and The 757 Club” on 102.1 FM and 1490 The Game that the Destroyers don’t want Pryor.

Schottenheimer began his response cautiously, hemming and hawing and talking about needing more information.  Once he got warmed up, he was blunt.

“With all due respect, we’ve got a quarterback, and we’re ready to move forward with him,” Schottenheimer said.

Pryor is getting plenty of press because he has a recognizable name, that recognizable name has been in the press plenty of late, and there isn’t a lot of other pro football news happening right now.  In the end, there’s a chance that no team will decide that the talent and potential outweigh the potential distractions.

    The UFL is not relevent.

    Seriously, who’s their QB? Not a Pryor fan. I just want to know.

    If Marty owned a car dealership he would be

    Forget all this CFL& UFL chatter. An NFL team will take a chance on Pryor. Whether it is in the supplemental draft or as a free agent, he will get a chance to play.

    In Derek Devine We Trust!!!

    Marty should be a head coach in the NFL, he’s one of the best out there.

    Even if Marty took him the team would screw up and never go to a championship because of his coaching ineptitude in the big games!!!

    Pryor was the top recruit in the country three years ago, and has been pretty successful at the college level. If Colin Kaepernick was worth a high second round draft pick, Pryor should be worth at least that. There is no difference between Pryor’s career and Vince Young’s in three years of college ball. Young was the third player taken in the draft a few years back.

    The “character concerns” are overblown. Pryor and Tressel are in disgrace at the same time as Newton, Fairley, and Chizik are going to the White House. Does anyone actually think that Auburn ran a cleaner program? Or that Newton and Fairley didn’t take a lot more dirty money than Pryor?

    By saying this… he’s telling the world he would take him in a heartbeat. Marty is sharp… don’t kid yourself.

    Umm…. with this lockout, the UFL is very, very relevant…

    Derek Devine…..I remember him from Marshall, haven’t heard that name in a while.

  12. thestp says: Jun 10, 2011 2:11 AM

    Seriously Mike?!?! Pat White is there, I can’t believe you didn’t mention (gush over) him! Why would you even want another QB playing there?…He’s Uh-Mazing. (I’m a sad, sad Dolphin fan).

    I still think the UFL is Pryor’s best outlet. It’s a chance to highlight his abilities against inferior talent alongside NFL coaching talent (and Denny Green!) during a year that might be NFL-less anyway.

    Dude simply isn’t ready for the bigs. He just isn’t.

    I’ve got a better title for you “Nfl fans aren’t interested in Marty Schottenheimer”

  15. keeponhating says: Jun 10, 2011 3:21 AM

    Or better yet “No Nfl teams interested in hiring washed up former Nfl coach” but I guess to be called washed up you would have had to have been good at one time

  16. freedomispopular says: Jun 10, 2011 3:46 AM

    It wouldn’t really matter. Schottenheimer’s team would choke in the end no matter what..

  17. dmackali1 says: Jun 10, 2011 4:22 AM

    Oh thats where Marty Schottenheimer went…..

    “In the end, there’s a chance that no team will decide that the talent and potential outweigh the potential distractions.”

    Especially when it pertains to someone with very little actual talent (other than being fast) and a ton of distractions.

    That last word, btw is code for being a societal douche.

    I live in Virginia and until I just read this I didn’t even know Virginia had a UFL team !

  20. tominma says: Jun 10, 2011 8:24 AM

    I thnink Terelle could have a significant careeer in the CFL. It’s the sorta of league in which he could run wild!

    You have a valid point about Kaepernick but The VY comparison is incorrect. VY has actually won a championship and Pryor has not.

    hobartbaker-

    I don’t give a rats arse if he was the number one recruit in the universe….THAT WAS THEN THIS IS NOW.

    Players develop differently in college. Some progress, some digress. The unanimous concensus from those in the know is that Pryor is not NFL ready. Does that mean he will never be? No.

    I would be interested to see how many #1 recruits have actually made it and succeeded at the NFL level.

    One thing that you continually look past hobart is the me first attitude that this guy is demonstrating. He only cares about what he wants. He has the potential to be like a Jamarcus Russel as much as he has the potential to be a VY.

    And frankly, I wouldn’t use VY as your supporting argument, cuz he kinda sucks and is an emotional nut job. It’s hard to really say he has “made it” at the NFL level.

    And for all you Marty bashers.. SAn Diego has been a rousing success since they cut him loose after that 14-2 season haven’t they. Marty may have had trouble winning a big game, but at least he could get to the big game. Are any of you going to honestly say you would take Norv Turner over Marty.
