Report: Terrelle Pryor To Start Season Finale For Oakland Raiders


According to a report, Terrelle Pryor will start at quarterback on Sunday when the Oakland Raiders host the Denver Broncos in their season finale.

Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reported via Twitter:

 

 

Pryor did not play in Oakland’s 26-13 loss on Sunday, two weeks after coach Dennis Allen said Matt McGloin would start the final three games of the season and that both quarterbacks would play.

Pryor started eight games earlier this season, with Oakland posting a 3-5 record. Pryor completed 57.7 percent of his passes for 1,591 yards with five touchdowns and 11 interceptions for a passer rating of 66.0.

McGloin has started the last six for the Raiders, completing 55.9 percent for 1,547 yards with eight touchdowns and eight interceptions, a passer rating of 76.1.

McGloin has five interceptions and just two touchdowns in his last two games and the Raiders have lost five straight games with McGloin starting after he won his starting debut in Houston on Nov. 17.

    This is why DA should be fired.

      Reggie knew from the beginning that DA was gonna suck. He just needed a warm body wearing a Raider cap to get thru these last two years. Deconstruction is complete.NOW he can begin the rebuild. DA was never in the plans of a true rebuild. He got used. Now they can lure a good coach and players.

        Hope you are right.

    Exactly! Like Raider fans cant see through this one! Using a young kid to step on to make himself look good! What a bitch he is!

  • TribalX

    In the past, DA has always strategically waited ’til the last possible day to say who would be starting. That way the opponent wouldn’t know who to prepare for. Suddenly he’s making this known on a Monday? He knew the writing was on the wall for his dismissal when he was told his staff would not receive a contract extension. Now he wants to screw Pryor on his way out the door by giving his old team a heads up on who’s starting. It wouldn’t surprise me to find out that he’s sent tape on Pryor to the Broncos. Dennis Allen is a fucking snake! If I were Mark Davis I’d fire his ass right now so he has no chance of coaching next Sunday.
