We will have some good money to bring more wheeler type guys on D. In the draft with the first pick 8-12 range get our own watt/miller/smith take D threw out but take a RT in between.
    Doubt they cut Palmer I hear the two are very close and that Pryor refers to Palmer as his team dad. Someone that looks out for him and is trying to bring the best out of him as a man and player.

    I don't think they'll keep palmer just to make Pryor happy. Pryor hasn't earned anything. I'm just saying Reggie isn't going to pay palmer anything more than 8 million and I don't see palmer taking a 5+ million pay cut. I keep reading his 13 million is non guaranteed next year and if that's true then he's gone for sure IMO.

    Pryor needs another year before he should be given the keys to the team to see if he can be a legit nfl qb

    I will not say he should be the starter or lets run Carson out of town. What I will say is he played well and if we had some recievers other than Myers and Streater catch the ball we may have even pulled off the win.

    Oh lord.... not only do you suggest cutting Palmer..... but doing it for Flynn lol.


    I would absolutely guarantee Palmer does not get cut. Despite people here running around saying "the sky is falling cut our best offensive player" management is a lot smarter than that. Cutting Palmer is literally the dumbest move we could possibly make. Dumber than cutting any other player on the team. Even guys like Wiz. Palmer played very well with a terrible playcaller, no run game, and no O-line. I am simply dumbfounded right now. Palmer is our only shot at Pryor panning out.

    We'll see. I lol at the fact that people lol at the fact that its plausible to get rid of a horrible contract for a 54-66 starter.

    Sure, why not. Not next year, mind you. But in years following,
    as he continues to work and grow. The passion, heart, and
    presence he showed last night are exactly what this team has
    been needing for over a decade. We need to get rid of our
    expensive dead weight (CP/Leinart) and develop this kid.

    So do the petulant prissy men who are in slots #1 and #2. I'd rather deal with Pryor's "character flaws" any day. At least he knows how to be on a TEAM and he understands that QBs must be LEADERS, not starlets.

    Why is anyone surprised that Dennis Allen - as stoic and bland a head coach as I've ever seen - chose to talk about Pryor in his categorically stoic and bland manner?

    Dennis Allen isn't going to do summersaults and cartwheels after wins; he's certainly not about to do summersaults and cartwheels after a loss when talking about a young QB who's still showing his growing pains out there.
    I agree after reading the transcript that is exactly what I took from it. He gave Pryor credit for the good but also mentioned the bad. I'm okay with that his completion percentage was below 50 and he made quite a few throws with bad footwork. Its easy to see the kid is capable but I would love to see more of the Redskins or Panthers style if he starts moving forward. Maybe we find a college coach that knows how to run it well to replace Greg Knapp.

    He's a real coach whom keeps his mouth shut and says little. No need to praise people and blow up their ego. We don't need a press conference diva.

    I for one like the fact he is stoic. He's a professional and has class, something we haven't had here for a while.
    Couldn't agree with you more,would his comments been different if we'd have won ..maybe but Pryor handled himself as best he could and did some great things on the field...IT WAS HIS FIRST GAME!!! ....and Allen knows this,he was also running a limited playbook to not overwhelm him which is the way any rookie QB should be brought into playing time. Dennis Allen has been consistant all year with his comments on what this team needs to do to improve....nuff'said.

    I have mixed feelings about Palmer, I hope to hell it was Knapp who held Palmer back after watching Pryor I have my suspicions about Palmer. I agree, Palmer will be the starter as long as he's on the team.

    If he does, I'll certainly be in line, plate in hand, ready for a helping of crow. But I'm doubting that'll happen. He's not a QB. He's a superior athlete. He's kinda like Tebow.

    People, let's take it easy. Pryor played a nice game yesterday....but against the crappy Chargers. He deserves to be the back up. He's not ready to start every day, not because of lack of talent, but due to lack of experience.
    I think he's a year away. I think Palmer will be back due to the fact that he's earned it, not to mention he's a big stability factor. It would be interesting to see how well he and DMC do with a decent O line and an OC with some imagination.

    I'll say this - I think Pryor has earned himself a very long, very serious look to be a long-term option at QB.

    He made some very good reads; he made some very good decisions; he actually has 'leadership' qualities on the field.

    After a very poor showing, Pryor rallied the team in the late stages and made a game out of it - even though it was unlikely Oakland would win.

    He earned consideration to start. I read a tweet that referred to him as a "developmental QB" - and I'm fine with that. He's under contract for two more years... so he'll remain in Oakland for two more years.
