Rumor is Hyde is thinking about bolting early.
RB is so thin this year, it wouldn't be a horrible idea. I think he stays though. If the Buckeyes have major success next year it could vault him into the first round of 2014.
That's true. Plus, no one really knows how Jordan Hall will be integrated next season when healthy (i.e. stealing carries). Still, I think a full year and a 1,000+ yard season would be more beneficial than leaving early.
Terelle Pryor was the leading receiver for the Raiders last week, btw. Granted, he only caught one pass, but he's seeing SOME action (had a run and a throw too).
Supposedly Pryor may get the start this weekend. The Raiders putting in Matt Leinart over Pryor when Carson Palmer got hurt further proves why the Raiders will continue to struggle for years to come.
You know what you have with Leinart, he's bad, and not a starting quarterback in the NFL. He's had multiple chances to prove himself and failed every time. At least roll the dice with Pryor and see what you have. You have no shot at making the playoffs, what do you have to lose? Pryor may not be any better than Leinart, but his upside is certainly much, much higher. Find out what you have with him, before it's too late.
McFadden will continue to get hurt every year, and the Raiders will end up firing a few more head coaches over the next few years and continue to be a laughing stock.
Oakland is the last team I'd want to get drafted by, or traded to. It's an NFL graveyard where careers go to die.
I agree 100%, if nothing else Pryor's a serious athletic talent. If he makes crucial mistakes, he learns from them or gets benched, but I'd roll the dice as well.
Raiders have absolutely nothing to lose by starting Pryor.
He's got the start, after a rocky beginning, starting to look pretty good actually.
