Terrelle Pryor’s career at Ohio State can be summed up as a disappointment. On the field, he could have been the next Vince Young, and often looked the part. But off of it, he would become the face of the worst scandal at Ohio State since Woody Hayes’s ill-fated haymaker.
Terrelle Pryor was the original Johnny Manziel. Maybe he didn’t have the smile or the child-like wonder, but he walked around with an F-off attitude that was like holding both middle fingers up to anyone who wanted to criticize him.
After his junior season, in which he completed 65 percent of his passes for 2,772 yds, and 27 touchdowns and 11 interceptions and rushed for 754 yards, Pryor was not considered a lock to be a first round pick in the 2011 draft.

Terrelle Pryor is just starting to make his mark in the NFL — he gained his first victory this weekend as starting quarterback for the Oakland Raiders, and has the opportunity to establish himself as one of the league’s promising young quarterbacks.

With the Oakland Raiders’ second game of the season right around the corner, fans are wondering how the team will match up to the Jacksonville Jaguars. With Jaguars’ quarterback Blaine Gabbert out because of an injury, the question is will this benefit the Raiders’ defense?
Absolutely. Chad Henne takes Gabbert’s place, and I think all teams have some adjustment issues when...
Although Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor didn’t have the same types of numbers that he did week 1, I’m sure he is happier with the final result.Pryor 126 and rushed for 50 this week as opposed to his week one show case of 217 passing and 112 rushing yards. Pryor isn’t upset about that.
“I feel like I did my job with the plays that were called in,” Pryor said. “I did my job...
Despite leaving the Lucas Oil Stadium with a loss last Sunday, the Oakland Raiders surprised a lot of people with the way they played against the widely favorites Indianapolis Colts.

Terrelle Pryor still supports Ohio State’s athletics teams, but he seems disappointed that the school banned him from associating with the football program for five years. Pryor watched his school compete against Cal on Saturday night, but he had to miss the second half of the game because of Oakland Raiders team meetings. The Cal-Ohio […]
Oakland Raiders quarterback Terelle Pryor still holds hard feelings toward Ohio State for the way the school has failed to embrace him since his premature departure in 2011.
After notching a 19-9 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, Pryor told the Columbus Dispatch that he currently has no relationship with his former school, and it doesn't appear he will anytime...
Terrelle Pryor didn’t have to do much this time.

Last Sunday, in the Oakland Raiders season-opening 21-17 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, Terrelle Pryor turned in one of the biggest breakout performances around the entire league
For Steve Clarkson, though, who ESPN The Magazine dubbed “the most powerful QB coach in football,” the strong display was far from a big surprise.
“The thing that most impressed me was that I wasn’t...
Ohio State seems notorious for being great to players when they need them and then distancing themselves as soon as the relationship goes south. We saw the debacle that was Maurice Clarett and now we get to see something similar with Terrelle Pryor. CBS Sports is reporting that Pryor may not exactly be on the best of terms with his former school.
After a win against Jacksonville...
Oakland Raiders starter Terrelle Pryor is not at all happy with how everything went down at his alma mater, Ohio State.
The Jacksonville Jaguars were intent on not letting Terrelle Pryor beat them with his legs.
So Pryor was more than content to put the ball in Darren McFadden's hands and watch him run.
McFadden ran for 129 of Oakland's 206 yards on the ground and the Raiders went on to beat the depleted Jacksonville Jaguars 19-9 in their home opener on Sunday.
A week after Pryor set a...
