Terrelle Pryor plays a series for Raiders, McGloin returns

Terrelle Pryor AP

The Raiders started Matt McGloin for the fourth staight week on Sunday, but coach Dennis Allen didn’t give him much time before deciding to make a change.

Pryor entered the game on the Raiders’ third offensive possession. McGloin looked hurt on the field and is standing on the sideline with his helmet on while Pryor leads the offense. There’s no sign of medical personnel examining him either, so it seems that this was simply a coach’s decision by Allen.

McGloin was 3-of-4 for 28 yards on the first two Raiders drives, leading them to a punt and a 52-yard field goal attempt that Sebastian Janikowski left short and right. There wasn’t much to make you stand up and cheer, but memories of the Pryor-led offense don’t do that either.

The Jets lead 10-0 after Geno Smith’s first touchdown pass since October 20 extended a lead they grabbed with a field goal on the opening possession of the game.

UPDATE 1:55 p.m. ET: Pryor led the Raiders to a field goal, cutting the Jets lead to 10-3, but McGloin is back in for the next Raiders possession. Raiders coach Dennis Allen has said recently that Pryor would get a look. For now, it appears that’s all it is going to be for the erstwhile Raiders starter.

    This is the stuff that gets coaches fired if it doesn’t work out.

    I’ve been a Raider fan my whole life. From what I’ve seen from the Raiders so far, I’d fire the entire coaching staff at halftime. Absolutely horrible.

    Why take him out this early in the game? Pryor in the snow? :-(

    And McGloin comes back in and throws a pick.

    Anybody else hear Gannon say he’s gonna have a verbal confrontation with Dick Allen for yanking QBs?

    Mcgloin throws a pick.

    Just wow.
    Denis Allen please get the hell away from my team.
    Al Davis would have smacked him up for what he has done today.
    WOW

    Dennis Allen is going to ruin whoever we have at qb. Where is Greg Olsen to tell Allen to shove it?

    As a Raider fan I must admit DA is an idiot for yanking McGloin. Maybe he’s just an idiot altogether, but it’s a totally stupid move. This coaching staff is incompetent and sure enough we’ll get yet another overhaul before 2014. The only promising coach on the team is Tarver.

    Dumpster fire.

    Didn’t think we’d miss Lechler this bad. Geesh, another blocked punt for a TD, not to mention all the missed FG’s by Seabass with this kid holding.

    Fire Reggie McKenzie the worst GM in Football.

    I’ve seen enough of McGloin to take a position on him. I wanted to give him enough time to be fair. It’s safe to say now that McGloin sucks.

    bottom line the raiders scored with pryor at qb
