Just like you reuse the same topic. Rolling Eyes Even Pryor thinks your number 54. Embarassed

Why not. It's his number. Unless its a retired number which al Davis never allowed, then who cares.

Let me give you some advice, and I'm being real so I apologize if it comes across as sarcastic:

If you want to be taken seriously in this forum, have your threads and posts actually appreciated, and have people stop ragging on you, then you need to ease back with some of this Pryor nonsense. There is nothing wrong with liking him, wanting him to succeed, or even wanting to see him start. However, when you throw around phrases like "all the potential in the world" or "become the best #2 in Raider history", it makes people just want to ignore your thread or post nothing but gifs in repsonse. There is a difference between jocking a player and playing him up to be a living legend. Go ahead and promote your boy, but try to be realistic about it.


I have made one or two threads about Pryor.


Its not just the threads, its how you come across in every post about Pryor. Rather than saying he has "great athletic ability" or "potential" you go way over the top and say he has "all the potential in the world". Rather than saying he "has a chance to erase the bad memories of Russell" you say he will become "the greatest #2 in team history". Theres nothing wrong with supporting him, recognizing what he has done, or saying what you hope he becomes, but whenever you talk about him it sounds like you think he is already a top-10 QB in the NFL.

Out of curosity who is the best #2 in franchise history


Probably Leo Araguez who, with one season as a top-5 punter, has been more valuable than Pryor thus far.

There's a lot of crap posted which I read religiously. A lot of winning of little importance. What right does anyone have to criticize another poster?

Pryor looks like he's on fast forward in that

If I may interject. The reason Mr. Prior is not allowed to wear number two is the teams lead doctor. Said Dr did some testing and research and concluded that the Raiders organization has indeed developed a severe allergy to quarterbacks who wear a number 2. Mr. Russell was just the last to wear the number. When it almost killed the Organization the Dr. decided it was better to let punters wear the number than to risk the teams welfare.So maybe your guy will become an awesome qb BECAUSE he is not wearing number 2. Or I may be just a little bit full O poo.

I think the word synonymous with Pryor ever since high school has been Potential. The problem is that he didn't even full fill the potential that most envisioned for him in college. That word potential is how a lot of fans still see him. He is however way behind the curve and a long term project at best. The NFL is an entirely different level still. Coming out of high school compared to his pears he had freakish ability, but he isn't that unusual anymore and many others along with having developed QB skill are at or close to his athletic equals. I think a lot of people are just tired of hearing the word Potential linked with Pryor and think it's time that some results are seen. So until that happens it's just better to stop the tiresome unwarranted hype.

I wasnt making fun of the dude, I was giving him actual advice. I know for a fact that there a lot of posters in here that, when they see ANY poster displaying blind homerism for a player who doesnt deserve it, they dont take that poster seriously. If I constantly found ways to bring up how Carson Palmer is a top-3 QB or that Rolando McClain has so much untapped potential and is going to be the next Ray Lewis, then people would stop responding to me and/or ignore the majority of my posts.

He doesnt have to take my advice, I'm not the king of this forum. I just figured that since the dude is new and not many posters have been taking him seriously I would let him in on how a lot of people seem to operate in here.

+1

Pryor got by in high school and college on his athleticism. At those levels just being flat out faster than everyone works. In the NFL it doesnt, just ask DHB. In high school and college, a fast QB can do a ton of damage- so much so that coaches dont need to develop them into great, good, or even effective passers. Compared to 18-21 year olds, Pryor was a man among boys and his physical talent seperated him by a good margin. Unfortunately for him, those people have since caught up and surpassed him due to their football skills.

How about everyone stop discussing other members and start talking football?

Instead of attacking members when they start a topic you don't like, just ignore it and don't post. If you don't like a topic, don't reply. Topics that don't get a lot of activity will fall off the first page and disappear.
