Despite an ugly loss yesterday in which the Kansas City Chiefs racked up 10 sacks and Oakland once faced a 4th and 48, Terrelle Pryor still has faith in his suddenly semi-relevant Raiders.
“We have to come together and start creating,” Pryor said, per CSN Bay Area. “We’ll be back; 2-4; we’ll get to the playoffs.”
While most people will scratch their heads at the comments, Pryor’s saying the right things, and it’s not incredibly unthinkable if the Raiders can get Darren McFadden healthy and establish a consistent running game. With McFadden playing through injuries for most of the season, it’s made guessing Oakland’s play calls far easier for opposing defenses, but Pryor and company have certainly proven that they can create some big plays from time to time.
What do you think? Do Pryor’s comments have legs? Can the Raiders sneak in as a Wild Card? Or will they be on the couch watching the playoffs like the rest of us?
