We have a link this morning to an article by Ryan Van Bibber over at SB Nation, where he discusses potential overreactions that were generated by Week 1 action. One of these overreactions was deeming former Buckeye Terrelle Pryor a star in the making, and Van Bibber goes on to investigate whether the Raiders truly have something to get excited about when it comes to the prospect of Pryor starting under center in the long term.
Here’s an excerpt from the article:
Oh sure, we all had a good laugh when Terrelle Pryor revealed that he finally learned how to throw a football this summer after two years in the NFL and three seasons at Ohio State. (Hey, nobody said Jim Tressel was perfect, except Jim Tressel.) Apparently, he wasn’t exaggerating. Whatever the Raiders did with Pryor this year, it worked. A week ago we were penciling in Teddy Bridgewater as Oakland’s next quarterback. And it may still come to that. For now, the Raiders and their long-suffering fans have to be happy about the fact that Pryor almost single-handedly engineered an upset of the Indianapolis Colts.
