According to Adam Kaplan of ESPN’s NFL Insiders, the jury is still very much out on Terrelle Pryor.
In an interview on 95.7 FM The Game, Kaplan expressed serious doubts about the viability of Pryor as the future quarterback of the Oakland Raiders:
.@caplannfl had some real talk about Pryor saying “he has regressed” but believes Denarius Moore can be a number 1 http://t.co/V7cVyAI2tr

When pressed on the issue Kaplan didn’t back down. On the widely held notion that Pryor is improving, he stated:
“I’m questioning it a lot. I don’t know what people are looking at.”
People are most likely looking at plays like his 93-yard run touchdown jaunt. The critique seems a bit harsh, but in a sense it also makes sense. Clearly, the template has been set for the Raiders’ offense under Pryor. The team jumps out to an explosive star only to follow it up with a dismal second-half performance.
That trend was no more evident than in the 21-18 win over the P...

Through eight full weeks of the 2013 NFL season, football fans have already seen more than their fair share of surprises.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are (gasp!) 0-8. The Cleveland Browns have already started three different quarterbacks – making that 20 different starting signal-callers for the franchise since its 1999 reincarnation. And Peyton Manning has had no trouble molding...

Philadelphia Eagles (3-5) at Oakland Raiders (3-4)
The Raiders won a close home game against the Steelers as underdogs last week, winning 21-18, but they didn’t play that well last week. If it wasn’t for a breakdown on a fluke touchdown run by Terrelle Pryor (the longest in NFL history by a quarterback) and two missed field goals by the Steelers that easily could have been made...
Last week: 30 (+1)
Aside from his NFL record 93-yard quarterback run, Terrelle Pryor struggled against the Steelers, who are one of the best defenses he’s faced this season, completing 10 of 19 for 92 yards and 2 interceptions. We know he can run, but his struggles in his last two games against the Chiefs’ and the Steelers’ defenses have to be concerning for the...
Chip Kelly is very familiar with what Terrelle Pryor can do as a quarterback.
Kelly tried to recruit Pryor to Oregon when he coached there, lost to him in the Rose Bowl, and now gets the chance to face him in the NFL when Kelly's Philadelphia Eagles visit the Oakland Raiders.
"Terrelle was always driven to be a quarterback, which is an awesome thing," Kelly said. ...

What happened in Oakland in the first 19 seconds last Sunday, when Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor faked a handoff to Darren McFadden, when LaMarr Woodley instructively crashed from his left outside linebacker position, when right guard Mike Brisiel pulled and linebacker Lawrence Timmons and safety Ryan Clark followed, when Troy Polamalu couldn’t escape the block of wide receiver...
The Philadelphia Eagles entered the season under the new Chip Kelly regime, riding a wave of excitement, which had been building ever since his first day news conference.In an intriguing matchup in Week 1 against the Washington Redskins, they took the NFL by storm, marching up and down the field with ease and confidence, two traits that have been missing ever since.On the other hand...
When the season began, a lot of people thought the Raiders had the look of a four-win team.
Not many had the Raiders getting those wins by midseason.
The Raiders can improve their record to 4-4 Sunday with a win over the Philadelphia Eagles at O.co Coliseum, a mediocre record until last season's 4-12 record and subsequent roster purge is taken into account.
The Oakland Raiders are hoping to make a push toward the playoffs, though it won't come easy if their offense continues to vanish after halftime.
Thanks in part to their instability at quarterback, the Philadelphia Eagles are having trouble producing any offense at all after a hot start.
Now the Eagles will turn back to Nick Foles, who will try to make the most of another chance...
