My opinion I'm glad we have someone who can get the receivers the ball as we find our future QB! I think we forget the last ten years of our qb's;
2010 Jason Campbell (12) / Bruce Gradkowski (4)
2009 JaMarcus Russell (9) / Charlie Frye (3)
2008 JaMarcus Russell (15) / Andrew Walter (1)
2007 Josh McCown (9) / Daunte Culpepper (6) / JaMarcus Russell (1)
2006 Andrew Walter (8) / Aaron Brooks (8)
2005 Kerry Collins / Marques Tuiasosopo (1)
2004 Kerry Collins
2003 Rick Mirer / Rich Gannon / Marques Tuiasosopo
Does anyone really know the implications related to releasing Palmer? Truly? I've seen a lot of radically different notions reported.
I was Palmer's biggest supporter if you look at previous posts of mine, but at this point in our organization I just don't think Palmer is worth the price tag. Their are plenty of other guys in the league who can throw INTs and make bad decisions (my biggest gripe on Palmer). It is one thing when you are down in a game and you have to force some throws, but Palmer does it regularly and isn't mobile enough to succeed behind our OL.
I was doing some research on Pryor and found this little video of him working on his throwing motion about a year ago with Chad Ochocinco, a little raw but not to shabby...
"The Greatness Of The Raiders Lies In Their Future"-Al Davis
Terrelle Pryor - QB - Raiders
Raiders coach Dennis Allen reiterated that he came away impressed with Terrelle Pryor's Week 17 spot start.
"He’s obviously somebody that we’ve got to take account of and know that he’s a guy that can create things," said Allen, praising Pryor's athleticism and "playmaking" ability. "His presence on the field was what I thought impressed me the most. The game was not too big for him." Pryor completed 13-of-28 passes for 150 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception against the Chargers, and ran nine times for 49 yards and a third score. He'll likely be Oakland's primary backup behind Carson Palmer in 2013.

I don't think Allen is capable of giving anyone a straight answer.

Greg Rosenthal suggests it is not gaurenteed here, and this is NFL.com. I read somewhere that only 6-7mil of next years 13mil is gaurenteed so that would be the hit...
This really is confusing...but given the backend of his contract, I want nothing to do with that...
i would like tp to start for us next year, and if it doesnt work out, we end up with Clowney.
