Dear Mr. Allen,
I understand why Pryor hasn’t been active until late in the season – I really do. I know you were saddled with him after the Raiders gave up a pick in the 3rd round for him and while he’s just the kind of guy that Al Davis liked – big, strong, fast and extremely athletic – he’s incredibly unpolished.
I know you likely don’t think he’s the future of the franchise. I know you’re more worried about winning your fourth game than you are developing a young guy like Pryor who you doubt will ever develop into a starting QB. I know that your coaching seat is hotter right now than you ever imagined it would be in your first season taking over a team that admittedly had a lot of issues before you got there.
Look, I understand all that and I sympathize with you –we all have employees, coworkers or superiors that we think only got the job because someone made a mistake when hiring (or in this case drafting) them. And I have my own reservations about Pryor’s future to be honest. I mean, he lacks accuracy on many of his passes which is really a fundamental necessity for an NFL Quarterback.no comments
