The Oakland Raiders showed some life today. I usually love to clown on that team any chance I get, but having Terrelle Pryor running the show made a big difference. He is not an accurate passer, but he is a quarterback that can move around in the pocket and run with the football and can make some plays happen. He is the Oakland Raiders version of Tim Tebow. He is a much better quarterback for the Raiders over Matt Flynn.

The Raiders are going to put up a fight. They won’t be at the bottom of the barrel this year. That will likely be the Jacksonville Jaguars. I still don’t see the Raiders winning a ton of games, but they will put up a fight and will battle it out with some teams. They stood with the Colts for all 4 quarters and made them work for that win.

It will be fun when the Chargers meet up with those Raiders. We have seen Pryor out there already once and know that he can make some plays happen with his legs. We better be prepared for him twice this seaosn.
