Quarterback Terrelle Pryor told Raiders.com that he worked out with a throwing mechanics coach during the offseason that also worked with Tom Brady and Drew Brees. I went and worked out with a guy named Tom House. He’s [Tom] Brady and [Drew] Brees’… I’m sure you guys have heard of him, he’s a baseball pitcher. He’s a throwing mechanic freak. He breaks everything down scientifically, and I found out that I was leaving my chest open a lot so it was making me late. So when I was coming down to throw with my left arm, my right arm was saying it’s time to go, the timing wasn’t right. He kind of helped me with that. It’s definitely helping shoot the ball a lot more and better. My thing looking in the mirror last year was I need to be more accurate. That’s what it is and somewhere I have got to get there, and I will get there, and I’m getting close I can feel it. It seems like the coaching Pryor received might be helping him. Some people have noticed that he’s looked better throwing the bal

Week Two: Terrelle Pryor is not that bright When you do something stupid as a college kid.
You sorta have an out, or a do over or something.
In Terrelle Pryor’s case, he went from being a stud preparing for the NFL to a dud begging for mercy in the supplemental draft.
Why? Because he did something stupid.
Common sense would like us all to think that after you do something...
Oakland Raiders backup quarterback Terrelle Pryor picked a fine time to come out and admit a severe deficiency, just as the 2013 NFL season is getting underway.
Pryor is as athletic, and gifted a player you’ll ever meet, but was never the strongest passer. Pryor did his best to fix that deficiency, by hiring Tom House to be his quarterback coach this off-season.
Jerry McDonald of InsidetheBayArea.com believes wide receiver Rod Streater could end up becoming Matt Flynn’s go-to receiver this season. Rod Streater has been the most consistent player and could emerge as the go-to receiver for Flynn and Co. because they’re relatively certain he’ll come down with the ball. If Flynn is going to have any success this season, he’s going to...

Ever since Google Glass, Google’s uber-expensive computer spectacles that make people look like awkward-looking human robots, was unleashed on the masses a few fortunate select individuals, we’ve seen our share of POV videos during sporting events that have given us unique perspectives we rarely have had access to in the past. But never has it been used during actual live NFL...
The raiders had their fourth day of camp today and their second padded practice. Here are some notes. My information comes from Raiders beat writers via Twitter and can be found on Twitter as @LeviDamien @ChrisMcClain @CorkOnTheNfl (Steve Corkran) @VicTafur @AsherMatthews @ChrisHansenNFL. I will be compiling all of their information throughout training camp. For all Raiders...
Darren McFadden hopes that going downhill will be just the tonic to revive his career with the Oakland Raiders.
Back in a familiar offense that suits his running style perfectly, McFadden is looking to bounce back from a disastrous 2012 campaign and return to the big-play back he was for the two years Hue Jackson ran the Raiders' offense.
Oakland switched schemes after Jackson...
We’ve already reported that Raiders quarterback Matt Flynn has looked like the top quarterback so far in training camp.
The San Francisco Chronicle considers the Raiders starting job Flynn’s to lose right now, despite the fact that Terrelle Pryor has looked good so far in camp.
Pryor may have the better arm and be more athletic, but the starting quarterback’s job is Matt...
Here are some quick hit thoughts on the Raiders' Saturday training camp. The team has practice on Sunday at 9:20 am, their first session in pads:
-UDFA Conner Vernon has been a fan favorite ever since the team signed him immediately following the draft. He earned further support after Dennis Allen mentioned him by name, saying that Vernon had caught his eye after minicamp...

The NFL seems to have a growing issue (no pun intended) involving players throughout the league. This problem is the use of HGH (Human Growth Hormones). Commissioner Roger Goodell and other officials have been working non-stop to get a testing agreement settled with the NFLPA. After the lockout back in 2011 was settled, this topic was supposed to be among the top issues that needed...
This year, Raider fans will have the opportunity to experience Training Camp in a totally new way thanks to punter Chris Kluwe. The veteran kicking specialist has brought a “Google Glass” to the training facility located at Napa Valley so the Silver & Black faithful can get into the action through his view of what’s going on, like never seen [...]

Oakland Raiders fullback Marcel Reece has a theory about the NFL's new rule pertaining to illegal contact by an offensive player with the crown of the helmet.
Pay the league or pay the price with your coaches.
Any use of the top or crown of the helmet to intentionally initiate contact outside of the tackle box will now draw a 15-yard penalty. Like with defenders who illegally...
A few thoughts about the Raiders training camp, trying to make sense of all the information that is generated every day:
-It’s no big secret that the Raiders lack a true #1 wide receiver – someone who can take over a game and who requires opponents to plan their defense around covering him – but that doesn’t mean that they won’t be able to move the ball in the passing...
The Raiders on Monday agreed to a deal with free agent linebacker Omar Gaither.
The team is currently banged up at the position with Miles Burris, Kaluka Maiava and Sio Moore among the linebackers dealing with injuries. Gaither was originally brought on in the second half of the season but was mostly ineffective starting at middle linebacker when Rolando McClain was busy being a...
