Terrelle Pryor’s bye week plans have changed. The Raiders quarterback planned on visiting private mechanics coach Tom House during the NFL-mandated four-day bye-week dead period but he’s going to stay home instead. Schedules didn’t mesh with House this weekend so Pryor and offensive coordinator Greg Olson are going to hunker down and study while most other Raiders are away. Pryor planned on taking a few days off during this stretch but Sunday’s loss to Kansas City changed things. “I planned my schedule thinking we were going to win that game” Pryor said. “Three picks changed some things.” Pryor’s break shrunk to a Wednesday afternoon off and a Thursday morning met without an alarm. He’ll sleep in and then get back to work studying film. It’ll be the latest start and the earliest finish since the season started. Pryor and Olson will analyze decision making in detail why he makes throws and how he can play smarter. Pryor wants to avoid a repeat of Sunday’s debacle where he threw thr

Broken Down Ford: Jacoby’s Days Are Numbered In Oakland

When track athlete Jacoby Ford ran the fastest 40-yard dash time of 4.28 seconds at the 2010 NFL draft combine, everyone knew he would be drafted by the speed addict Al Davis and the Oakland Raiders.

Raiders taking it slow with LB Miles Burris

Oakland Raiders LB Miles Burris hasn't practiced since last season and underwent offseason knee surgery followed by a slow rehab that has kept him out much longer than even the Raiders calculated. Burris was an active defender in 2012. He made 15 starts last season and had 96 tackles, 1.5 sacks an interception. The team is bringing him along slowly, but would like to see him...

Denarius Moore’s Growth to Raiders’ Best Receiver

Denarius Moore has been a talented receiver for the Raiders since the moment he stepped onto the field. A year after finding Jacoby Ford in the 4th round, beat reporters hailed Moore as another late-round steal from Davis’ final draft for circus-like catches. It didn’t take long for the nation to see Moore’s talents, as he exploded for a 5-catch, 146 yard effort in his second...

Bye Week Studying: Greg Olson Should Copy the Seahawks Offense

The Oakland Raiders are heading into a much needed bye week after a disappointing 2-4 start to the season. What makes the Raiders slow start so frustrating is that they have played much better than expected and they should probably be 4-2. New offensive coordinator Greg Olson has done a fantastic job building an offense around Terrelle Pryor on short notice, now he can finally have...

Raiders want to build around Terrelle Pryor

Terrelle Pryor has been quite the surprise early in the season and it looks like he may be the quarterback of the future for the Raiders. However, Pryor and the Raiders struggled last week against the Chiefs.

Raiders need to get Marcel Reece more involved

Where has Marcel Reece been in the Raiders offense? There is little doubt that Marcel is a difference maker with the ball in his hands but he has not been able to get going yet this year in OC Greg Olson's offense. The Raiders need to do something about this mismanagement of assets because Reece is too damn good of a player not to utilize. Marcel on the season has touched the...

Pryor shows signs of fulfilling Al Davis' belief

The Oakland Raiders spent the first two years after late owner Al Davis' death looking for a quarterback to return the franchise to glory. They traded for Carson Palmer and Matt Flynn drafted Tyler Wilson and pursued Josh Freeman all while being deeply skeptical of Davis' final draft pick in Oakland. Now the Raiders finally appear to be firmly behind Terrelle Pryor as their...

Oakland Raiders: Was D.J. Hayden the Right Choice?

Misguided trades and underperforming draft picks are exactly the kind of mistakes that get an NFL executive fired. The Matt Flynn deal nailed the misguided trade part. Now, Oakland Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie is hoping that top pick D.J. Hayden won’t fall into that second group. NFL.com’s Chris Wesseling recently released a list of the top 15 rookies through the first six weeks...

Chiefs on pace to set sacks record

Texans coach Gary Kubiak felt an overwhelming sense of empathy for Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor when he watched video of him against the Kansas City Chiefs last weekend. If Pryor turned one direction, he ran into Tamba Hali. Turn the other, Justin Houston was on top of him. Try to step up in the pocket and Derrick Johnson was waiting. Pryor was sacked 10 times in a 24-7 victory...

Oakland Raiders: 2013 Week 7 NFL Power Rankings (#30)

Last week: 30 (+0) Record: 2-4 The Raiders faced a 4th and 48 in their loss to the Chiefs this week, which is, unofficially I believe, an NFL record. It was so bad that even a solid punt, 46 yards, didn’t reach the chains. Negative plays were a theme of the day for the Raiders, as they were sacked 10 times. Terrelle Pryor is to blame for much of it, probably more than the offensive...
