11:45 AM ET 12.17 | With the Raiders in the midst of a lost season, head coach Dennis Allen decided to treat QB Terrelle Pryor to his first NFL snap Sunday in Oakland's 15-0 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. Three snaps to be exact. On the Raiders first series of the second quarter, Pryor replaced starter Carson Palmer with the coaching staff anxious to see if the young signal caller could possibly get something started. Unfortunately, that's not what happened as Oakland racked up a quick three-and-out after a false start on first down. Pryor attempted only one pass on the possession-an incompletion directed for Darrius Heyward-Bey. On the other two downs, he simply handed the ball off to Darren McFadden.

Might as well. Palmer ain't the answer.

Wasn't the big wheel at Ohio State that he thought he was.

Didn't give him much of a chance tho only 3 plays, they given Carson 2 seasons and he ain't showed them anything either......might as well let him play a whole game see what the kid can do,only thing he can do is win the game and screw up your draft slot.

I think at some point, he will he will be a better Quarterback than Carson Palmer, true it's not saying much!!!

If after all this time that's all the reps Pryor gets, I think he's not the answer either.

Yep... but at least they didn't kill themselves by wasting a pick....




Oops.

I hear they are having a Pryor day at OSU to thank him for leaving early, distroying their 12-0 season and Nat bid and getting a fine coach fired. What a great guy. He constantly talks about all the things he is sorry for like he's: sorry he doesn't get to play, sorry he isn't starting, sorry he wasn't traded somewhere where he can star like Cam and RGIII.

KC could use him, ditto Arizona

He didn't get the coach fired.....that was the coach's own doing for trying to cover it up and not coming forward.

The guy is the Raiders' version of Tim Tebow. They'd might as well play him and give him reps with the first team in practice. Give him a chance to show what he's got.

It might not be much, but every guy deserves a chance, right?
