The Raiders are on the brink of turning around this once great franchise. The GM and HC finally has accept to let Terrelle Pryor compete openly for the starting QB position and are wising up to drafting an OL or DL, or even trading the 3rd pick for 2 picksin the later rounds.
If there is any QB that can come close to matching the performance of Collin Kaepernick it's Pryor. They are both listed at 6' 4", 230 + and have tremendous football speed [ Pryor is just a tad bit faster ]. Pryor has a strong arm and played in a tougher College conference, the Big 10. He has played on the big stage many times and starting for the Raiders should not be too much for him to handle.
Sure there will be some setbacks with a first time starter, but Pryor's athleticism will hide the flaws on the Raiders OL anduse thier draft picks on building their defense. The Raiders have to start on that side of the ball, specially when you are playing Peyton Manning 2x in a season and now potentially an upgraded offense with the Chiefs and Alex Smith.
Raiders starting Pryor is a good start. If anything Pryor will entertain the Fans more than Carson Palmer would. Pryor buys time for the Raiders to fix the OL and concentrate on the defense. Ultimately it's Pryor Time....
