The Future Is Now: Terrelle Pryor Looks Like Franchise Quarterback

I don’t want to get carried away after just one game but Terrelle Pryor looks like he can be the answer to the Oakland Raiders quarterback problems.

The Slow Road To the NFL (Pun Intended): Who Is Oakland Raiders Tight End Jeron Mastrud

Oakland Raiders tight end Jeron Mastrud was an afterthought in the Raiders tight end discussion this off-season, but he wound up beating out Richard Gordon for the final spot on the team.

Paul George Surprises Colts Fans As Inflatable Mascot

Paul George surprised fans at the Colts game by dressing up as Air Blue, the Colts inflatable version of mascot Blue.  The Colts also dropped a nice little remix of Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.”  We’ve talked about LeBron, but I’d like to see George line up as a wide receiver.  Andrew Luck might like that too.
