65% sounds good, but it also might be misleading.....now, how many passes were thrown downfield, 15-20+ yrds downfield? I am not saying it was this way, but he sure doesn't look that accurate at this juncture of his NFL career.....I have bashed him from the get go, but I kinda like the kid now....his attitude, work etchic, etc. He may be our QB down the road.....who knows?.....one thing's for sure, he's trying HARD to get there.....and I commend him, and respect him for it.....if only Jamarcus had his heart, we wouldn't be in this place.....sad.....really.....sad...
Well, there are coaches out there that "teach" away a QB's accuracy- ie Art Shell+ Tom Walsh and what they did to Andrew Walter.
Pryor won't become more accurate if he only gets to throw the ball 5 times in live practices.
RAIDERS. ARE. BACK.
No one here expects Pryor to be Steve Young, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers. What we are saying is with experience and the chemistry between him and his starting receivers that come with it, some changes to his delivery, and an offense built around his strengths, he can be a more accurate QB and a good QB overall.
Of course, this is just my opinion. You all don't have to agree with it. That's why forums like this are interesting.
Pryor does't quite have the arm and acuracy of Kaepernick....But he does have a lot of the same qualities. To me he is more like Cam Newton. When Newton came in the league he had a lot of those same questions about his game also. With a good qb coach and a new OC, Pryor just may be up next as the starter in Oakland. The one thing the OC's of Griffin III, Wilson, Newton and even Vick back in the day was that the offense was built around them, That is what Pryor will need to be successful.

ONE NATION, DOMINATION, RAIDER NATION!
The read option is not the easy to defend. For those who do not understand the schemes let me help you. Because you do not block the end on a read option it creates and extra blocker for the run game up the middle. If you crash on the run the qb keeps it and runs around you. If you take the qb the rb takes it up the middle for 5 yds plus. Now at that point the defense brings a safety down to take the qb and the end crashes on the rb every time, problem with that is it creates one on one match ups on the outside for the play action read pass. Furthermore since the lbs have to respect the read option (qb or rb) it keeps them in the box and creates passing lanes behind them for drag routes, slants or tight end option routes. This is a truely pick your poison offense. Defenses will learn to slow it down better but there will always be an opening in this type of package. I think it would have to do player types more than schemes to stop this.

Pryor has a chance to prove me wrong. I hope he wins that job. like i said in the other thread im sure he can match the 4 wins. but hopefully with fixing the OL/DL he can win us more. I wish we can still bring in dysert if he falls, and have a 3 man competition.
