It has been the hottest football debate in Oakland, who should start Sunday Terrelle Pryor or Matt Leinart. Dennis Allen announced Friday after a week long evaluation the Pryor will be the starter.
â€œIâ€™ve decided to go with Terrelle Pryor as our quarterback,â€™â€™ Allen said Friday following practice. â€œHeâ€™ll play in the game and weâ€™ll see how the game goes.
Heâ€™s the starter, and weâ€™re going to go into it as we would any other game,â€™â€™ according to Jerry McDonald of contracostatimes.com.
Pryor now will get a chance to show what he can do and if the Raiders should have quarterback as their top priority in the off-season.
â€œI wanted to see how each player responded,â€™â€™ Allen said. â€œI thought Terrelle responded well. I think he gives us a unique element of athleticism at the quarterback position and I think he deserves to get an opportunity to get out there and see what he can do.
