Terrelle Pryor to see more spot duty for Raiders

Terrelle Pryor AP

Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor saw his first game action of the season in the team’s victory over the Kansas City Chiefs last week.

He could see an even further increased role as the Raiders take on the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

According to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle, Pryor will see time on third downs and possibly get some red zone snaps as well against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

“We’re going to try and use some of his athletic ability this week,” offensive coordinator Greg Knapp said.

Pryor has been active for just two games in his two seasons in the league and has been on the field for a grand total of four plays. Pryor played three snaps and threw the first pass of his career, an incompletion intended for Darrius Heyward-Bey, in the Raiders 15-0 win over the Chiefs last week.

    Been hearing this for several weeks now…he has been nothing but a spot, having busted his butt for a grand total of three snaps last week.

    I’ll believe it when I see it…and I’ll believe it when take a Knapp’s offense is gone.

    A perfect time to be able to showcase your 3rd string QB for a possible trade: when you are already **way** out of playoff contention and your season is long sunk.

    spot duty?Does that mean we’ll be able to spot him on the sidelines holding a clipboard?

    Non factor games and offseason.. When the raiders make the most noise.. Regular season, crickets

    It took you until week 16 to do this??

    Krapp has to go, Reggie!!

    Even if Pryor plays, does anyone have confidence in Knapp to design or call an effective play for him?

    get rid of knapp and the offense is fine, believe dat!!

    what will be the difference between palmer and pryor….first down, hand off and run the ball all the way east out of of bounds, setting up a second and ten, where we run the ball all the way west out of bounds setting up a third and 10, where we either throw a 6 yard pass that is either an incomplete pass, or caught and tackled, which means lechler is punting on a 4th and four to go. Only difference with pryor is Brisel will either get a false start or hold on the pass play, which the other team will decline.

    same thing every single week with greg knapp. guy has no game plan, and lacks any creative game plays. B_O_R_I_N_G!

    It’s pretty pathetic when even the Raiders 3rd string QB has a stronger arm than that noodle armed ginger, Andy Dalton.

    I don’t mind putting Pryor in for some additional series in the last 2 games…as long as it rightfully convinces McKenzie & Allen that he shouldn’t be occupying a Raiders’ roster spot in 2013.

    Pure athleticism does not equate to football talent and this Al Davis wasted pick is not (and will never be) a legit NFL QB. Hopefully he winds up on the Chiefs or another AFCW rival in 2013.

    Dude, that’s totally unfair! Those aren’t the only calls Greg Krapp makes. You forget all about the times that we rush for 7-8 yards a couple of plays in a row, and then Greg Krapp inexplicably calls for 25 lateral passes in a row.

  16. txraiderfan says: Dec 21, 2012 2:17 PM

    Oh, and we can’t forget his beloved play-action passes that fool no one. Even my grandmother sometimes asks who Greg Krapp thinks he’s fooling with his play-action on third and eight (every dam time). He’s the worst coordinator in the NFL.

  17. txraiderfan says: Dec 21, 2012 2:19 PM

    Joe,
    “noodle armed ginger” or not, he’s still a better QB than Pryor will ever be.
    Pryor should have been moved to WR in training camp.

    “Even if Pryor plays, does anyone have confidence in Knapp to design or call an effective play for him?”

    Yes, Greg Krapp will call his specialty: trips right with two receivers running a cross, and the other other running an out route. Most important part, and this is crucial to a Greg Krapp offense: make sure they’re all short of the yard marker or goal line!

    @txraiderfan^ Your sarcasm is spot on. All year long that same non first down pass short every time . Every goddamn time!

  20. gitchogameon says: Dec 21, 2012 11:43 PM

    This is a Brilliant move by Knapp and Co.

    Play Pryor against a team that NEVER see’s a Athletic mobile QB!

    I mean the week before w/5min left in a game out of reach by the Chiefs. With no pressure on him to do much rather just get some reps. They risk injury to Palmer and DMC instead.

    I swear The Raiders are a secret CIA experiment to see how crazy one can be made as a fan.

    You know I can’t stand a coach coordinator or GM that won’t play a talented player and he moves on too be something special somewhere else what seems like will happen here with this situation makes me question the fact that why the Raiders have been rebuilding since the 2001-2002 season. I mean the season is over why not give this guy a chance to see what you have for next season or in the future instead signing players that are straight off the steets as free agents the reason why there free agents is because their situations didn’t work out as stars on there x teams. So please give the guy a chance.
