PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
I am looking forward to see how our former Buckeye performs on one of the nfl season's main stages... I am excited to watch
3 and out for the first drive...
Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...
Wish Pryor the best, but unless that Raider secondary can pull off a near perfect game and prevent a lot of big pass plays I don't see Pryor being able to score enough to keep up with Peyton. So..uhhh....Go Charles Woodson?
Our Honor Defend!
Pryor has literally no weapons to use.
Pryor and McFadden may be the only bright spots on the team.
Oakland is very undisciplined on defense
Also, passing-wise, Peyton Manning he is not...
I could count on one hand the number of people that are.
Class of 2010.
Also in-game knowledge, Peyton Manning he is not
About to start offensive set #2... Broncos defense (read: lack of LA offense) probably to ensue...
Nice OSU props on their info segway, but TP is still short-arming it
TP never learned to throw a football at tOSU...
What we can't do in the air we'll do on the ground.
Screwed terribly by the refs on the opening drive. Gotta say TP looked good on all those passes...made the best of some ugly protection.
He has a quick, yet mostly accurate release
...and 3 and out
Bull-rushed almost the entire time
Three consecutive 3 and outs... I am bad at math, but I am guessing the raiders are at 4-5 total yards on 9 plays from scrimmage. ..
Um no. Pryor had thrown for like 15 yards.should have been more if not for that horrible PI call and then the dropped pass.
I was going with official stats at the time, but yeah... they got hosed
The Raiders are just awful. Pryor really has no chance to succeed tonight. Hopefully they call some roll outs and bootlegs to get him outside the pocket.
Field goal by Denver.... 10-0 non-pryors
TTUN fans would rather talk tOSU failures in the past ten years than their own successes. Probably because they haven't had a lot of success.
Pryor has looked very good. It's hard to be a good QB when your playing behind an awful offensive line.
73 yard TD pass by Pryor
Even with a swarming D, the Raiders and TP, with the help of a broken tackle rock a 73 yard td reception
7/11, 101 yards, 1TD, 0INTS, 1CARRY, 23YDS
Damn Oakland defense
TP keeps building momentum... for his team's offensive stats... defensive vs. Peyton... well
Edit: LA line is lacking
Well the Raiders defense is pretty pathetic as well as their offensive line.
I wish he would have ended up on the other side of the bay. Seeing him in that 49ers offense would be pretty awesome.
I'm actually impressed with how he looks. Throws a nice ball and has good pocket presence.
Fuck it... Bring TP to Clevland and draft some players to surround him. There is absolutely no hope for anything in Oakland at all.
TP has looked pretty good, considering the Raiders O-line is a row of traffic cones and the receivers are made out of bricks.
The Raiders defense might be the worst NFL defense I have ever seen.
The offensive line has mastered the "lookout" block.
just another psycho, irrational, delusional Ohio St fan
TP is doing alright, but that Bronco offense is virtually unstoppable.
Hard not to against Oakland.
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
No matter what, I do enjoy watching the graceful way he drops back into the pocket. TP is a great athlete.

My anger towards TP has passed. Wish him the best now in his career.
We are obviously watching different games. They have no respect for TP to throw an accurate deep ball and it has the LBs and Ss all over underneath routes and run plays. TP just had all day to throw and caused a holding call because he couldn't find a receiver. Finally a quick throw, wr screen. I love him but he needs to dial up Mr Whitfield.
Man this OLine is a total mess. Pryor has no chance at developing with this team. Hopefully his athleticism will buy him some time, but seriously this is just pitiful.
That was pass interference? What has happened to football? I hate all these calls.
They should do Pryor a favor and install some sort of rudimentary spread plays where he can shine. Give him the run/pass option on every play.
I think he's looked REALLY good considering the lack of weapons around him.
18/25 72% 274yds 1 TD 0 Ints
3 carries 38 yds
Couple of dropped passes and penalties on completions haven't helped much either.
I can't believe they didn't call helmet to helmet on that hit on Pryor if that would have been Manning you know they would have called it.

As a runner they aren't protected like that. If he was sitting in the pocket it probably would have been called, but as soon as he became a runner on the draw that protection ended.
I thought they change that rule for the helmet on helmet it doesn't matter where or when it happens as long as the helmet on helmet unless I'm wrong
19/28, 281 yds, 1 TD...not too shabby
Raiders announce Pryor has a concussion. Hopefully this doesn't set him back too much, as he was showing a lot of promise.
I feel like it would be hard to diagnose Pryor with a concussion. He always sounds a bit concussed to me...
I thought Pryor looked good. He mainly stayed in the pocket, well rather forced to stay in the pocket and he made the throws he needed to make for the most part. Receivers got make catches and that was a horrible Offensive PI call in the first quarter, especially when the refs hardly ever call offensive PI. His fourth start and you can see the progress he's making. He should get his 2nd win if he's allowed to start against Washington next week.

Pryor looked really good considering he has absolutely no help. The only problem is he was playing against the computer on All-Madden mode. Peyton Manning makes me feel like I'm not worthy to even watch football.
