Terrelle Pryor will get another chance, at some point

Terrelle Pryor AP

Undrafted rookie quarterback Matt McGloin has started three straight games for the Raiders.  He’ll get a fourth.  Eventually, however, Terrelle Pryor will get another chance.

That’s what Raiders coach Dennis Allen said Friday, a day after a 31-24 loss to the Cowboys.

“I don’t think he’s done anything to play himself out of that position,” Allen said of McGloin, via Steve Corkran of Bay Area News Group.

Eventually, Pryor will play again, as the Raiders try to figure out what they have and what they need at the quarterback position.

“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.”

For Allen, the bigger question is whether moving forward he’ll be involved in figuring out who the quarterback will be moving forward.

    If a coach can not figure out who his starting QB is … he should not be a coach.

    Remember, it was the GM who signed Flynn to be the franchise QB….

    I don’t agree with you. You have to consider who gives you the best chance to win now and who gives you the best chance in the future. Those two situations are not the same. Then does the draft have a QB that’s better that the two you already have?

    I rather have McGloin as the starter but I also rather have a team that plays 4 quarters instead of 2. I love my Raiders but this club has got to be the worst second half team in the league, regardless of who’s under center. *looks at coaches*

    Or maybe Coach Allen needs to evaluate why his team has a record of 7-4-1 at halftime of all the games this year, but his actual record is 4-8. Let’s ponder that for awhile shall we. What once was a storied franchise is an annual punching bag. 11 straight non-winning seasons….in a row……..end rant from disgruntled Raiders fan.

    I still don’t understand how Pryor went from doing well and being ‘the Future’ to being a bum after suffering an injury. McGloin hasn’t looked all THAT great, and he’s lost games. Does anyone in the Raiders (or the punditry) have any clue as to what they’re doing/talking about?

    I like Pryor, he’s the type of player I can relate too and get behind and support regardless of the team… Mcgloin too given his story and what not, but it comes down to production and so far mcgloins done just about as much as Pryor has in a shorter time frame… But you gotta give Pryor a fair shot with the O Line improved from what it was, and maybe he can prove he’s the one…

    I’m disappointed yet excited with how this season went, I look forward to 2014 and what’s gonna happen.

    One Nation!!!

    The Raiders have had three times as many top 10 picks in the draft than any other team over the past dozen years and just can’t get it right. McCloin and Pryor will make capable backups in the NFL, but the Raiders still lack a real starting QB.

    Well there is no doubt mcgloin got the benefit of playing teams that all have a losing record.they all let him play against the jets, and then have Pryor play against the better teams

    Christian ponder is available for you raiders. Lol

    As a Die Hard Raider Fan, Im starting to wonder if Dennis Allen is the answer at HC. I genuinely believed in him until the Dallas loss. I dont know what his strategy is in the 2nd half of games, but clearly its not working. Its a shame too, because I was really rooting for him to be the next great coach. I really thought he could do it, and granted he’s turned around our defense. But lately, every game is a tale of 2 halves. I just dont get it. The highlight of the Raider season has been the return of Woodson which I love, but the year could have been so much more. What a drag.

    He’ll get another chance at what?

    Losing his job……again?

    Dennis Allen is making due with the team he was given. Reggie Mackenzie’s decision making so far (Flynn Contract, Tyler Wilson) is what’s bothersome.

  15. joetoronto says: Dec 1, 2013 5:17 AM

    He’ll get another chance either through injury, or a small package of plays here and there, as it should be, IMO.

    Pryor was sliding badly before he got injured, he was very easy to figure out was completely overwhelmed in some games.

    They have to let McLovin finish the year and then decide whether they go with him or draft a QB.

    It’s great to see players like Glennon, McGloin and Foles get their shot and do well. All three guys pretty much coming out of nowhere.

    Once again…without a playoff caliber O line, the QB will be running for his life, no run game will keep the defense on the field and we see how well that has been working.

    Everybody saying we have to look at the coaches because the team plays good in the first half and not in the second half. I think you need to consider the roster. The Raiders have no depth whatsoever. Therefor they fade in the second halves of games. The cap money next yr will allow some more depth. Remember they have 45 mil in dead space cap this yr. Thats 45 mil that couldn’t be spent on PLAYERS!! I agree they have to become more draft and development oriented. But that extra money ain’t gonna hurt as long as it’s being spent wisely. One of the things McKenzie has done well. Finding players that have come in and helped change the culture. Football players. Change doesn’t happen over night. Your never as close or as far away as you think in today’s NFL. GO RAIDERS!!!!!!

    Let both these guys compete all the way into training next year. This team is missing talented player on both sides of the ball primarily receiver, d-line, o-line. We will now be able to build around those two . I still believe Pryor has not reached full potential. He’s just gonna take longer to develop. Imagine him with an AJ green running down field getting wide open while Pryor is scrambling. Deadly !

  20. bambamraider says: Dec 3, 2013 3:17 PM

    Translation: No Way I’m let that running back wannabe Qb Pryor screw up any hope we might have for a playoff spot…. McGloin gets the nod.

    Apologies for the bad grammar…
