PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
I've been watching this shit game to see him in action. The Raiders have some pretty bad receivers so this should be interesting.
He hasn't looked very good yet, had one good check down to a TE for a first down.
Favorite Buckeye: Obviously BJ Mullens
Just pulled off another familiar run for a first down.
Run_Fido's favorite word is strawman.
That 3rd and 7 run just brought back memories.

Looking good to me so far. Can't bring the big man down. Can't wait to see him down the road for the Raiders.
Had a good throw for a first down, lets see if he can lead a game winning drive here.
Nice 15 yrd dart for a 1st. He has the look of humility about him. I hope he does well. He's gone through a lot in the last 2 years: lose OSU, lose mentor, lose father. That'll age you.
Watching this, so much deja vu...

Definately rooting for Pryor in this game even though I'm a cowboys fan. Love seeing the guy play regardless of whatever happened while he was a buckeye.

I think he's got a long way to go to be a good NFL QB.
Fan of bacon since 1981
Rooted for Pryor, but his throwing looked something awful. I miss watching him play, though. I realize it was the end of the game and circumstances required he play a certain way, but his mechanics and general throwing was bad. I saw more than a few floaters.
He was behind a turribl scrub o-line, but yeah, much work to be done. I think that missed practice time when he was suspended by The Roger set him back tremendously. At least he's getting paid to ball. <--tee-ball'd one right there, which UM fan wants a swing?
Same T.P. I remember, Amazing scrambler, qusetionable throws.... He does seem to be making better decisions and taking what the D is giving him instead of making one or two reads and running.
Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.
This guy is not an NFL qb. He doesn't have the accuracy or decision making ability to make it. He throws too many touch passes and lets the ball float to try and make accurate passes; even across the middle of the field. If the first read isn't there, he tries to tuck the ball and run and make a play. You can get away with that in CFB or even vs 3rd string def but not against a first team NFL defense. He's a terrific athlete and needs to be switched to WR/TE sooner rather than later. IMO they are wasting his talent trying to keep him at QB.
And just to clarify, I'm not a Pryor hater. I want him to succeed but I don't see it as an NFL qb. I think a switch to WR/TE would be the best way to utilze his talent.
Looks like he still thinks he's playing in the Shoe, hasn't changed at all, I always thought he would make a better WR than QB in the NFL.
Dude may never be a starting NFL qb but will never be effective at any other position...Simple as that
No clue what he will end up in his career but i will give him more then what this game shows till i make up my mind.
TP was a kid who made some boneheaded mistakes...but at the end of the day, he was a great QB for tOSU! 31-4 as a starter. Beat Oregon and Arkansas. Always had a knack for the clutch play. There were plays he made that nobody else could make. I, for one, am glad I got to witness his 3 years here. Hell of an athlete. Unfortunately, he got caught up in some bad stuff. But hey, so did Mo Clarett, and like TP, we hated Mo for a long time after that, but we came around because in the end, we all will remember that TP was a Buckeye first and foremost! I hope people give him the benefit of the doubt...
As for the NFL, I don't know if Terrelle is ever going to make an impact? The athleticism is off the charts, but that can't "save" him any longer at this level. He is young and has time to learn and grow. One preseason game is not enough to dictate success or failure. I'll admit that he struggled last night; He has happy feet, makes questionable decisions, and his passes are inconsistent. But he did bring some excitement, just ask the Raiders fans. So for the TP "homers" out there, including me, there's a bright spot. After watching that game, he truly doesn't have far to go to get a look. Palmer and Leinart both looked horrendous. If TP ever truly learns to read defenses and develop some consistency throwing the ball, he could be dynamic. It's a long way to go but I'll be watching and rooting for him!
And trust me, it'll be a long time before I ever forget some of the performances that TP delivered in the S&G, especially against top competition like Oregon and Arkansas!
