Carson Palmer is out with broken ribs and Matt Leinart’s name is bigger than his arm. In the final game of the season, Raider fans don’t want to see a retread like Lienart, they want to see if Terrelle Pryor, the second year quarterback from Ohio State has some of the ingredients to become the franchises next starting quarterback. Raiders fans have been calling for Pryor to play all season and Sunday would be a great opportunity to get him a start. Pryor has all the physical tools, but Allen feels his mental aspect is still lagging. "He's still a work in progress as far as that's concerned," Allen said, noting Pryor doesn't have full command of the offense,  NFL.com reported. "I wouldn't expect a lot different out of any other young quarterback." We like Allen, but this is the perfect game to throw Pryor out there and see what he can do. If Allen feels he doesn’t have command of the entire offense, then game plan around it. Pryor has Cam Newton type of athletic ability and just maybe if Allen gives the kid a shot, he might surprise. However, if he starts Leinart, Allen could be hanging himself in the eyes of owner Mark Davis, who is watching the development of young players closely and stunting that growth by not playing them is not a good practice when you 4-11.   var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
