Oakland Raiders: Terrelle Pryor Is The Inspiration


Getting ready to play a team who has already been dubbed the AFC West Champions, AFC Champions, and a contender in the 2013 Super Bowl, can be a daunting task for any team.  How do you prepare for a game that you’re supposed to lose?  Simple, use the inspiration that has been harnessed by Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor.

Talented, yes he is, but talent alone does not win football games.  A player must give inspiration to himself and others in order to bring out the most in every player.  Pryor is doing just that, single-handedly.  Where does his inspiration come from?  It comes from his family, from his hard work, from the late Al Davis, from the people who said he couldn’t do it, from the Ohio State debacle, and from deep down inside his heart.  His inspiration is beginning to rub off on the other players on the field.  The Oakland Raiders were supposed to be the worst team in the AFC West, no scratch that, worst team in the entire NFL.  The Raiders were written off by all the pundits.  Then, the Raiders faced the Indianapolis Colts and shocked the entire world, but Raider Nation wasn’t shocked.  Neither was Terrelle Pryor.

Pryor knew what he had within him.  He has the drive to take the rock down the field and do what is needed to score points.  He will make mistakes, but he will learn and grow from those mistakes to be a better player and manager of the game.  He’s prepared for the matchup about to take place on Monday Night Football.  He will give the Raiders the edge to win against a team that is thought to be a giant.  Both the offensive and defensive players will feed off of his inspiration, and the Raiders will shock the world when they play head to head with the donkeys.  It doesn’t matter who thinks you’re going to win or lose, it only matters what takes place upon the playing field.

I can’t wait for Pryor’s quickness to surprise the Denver Broncos defense like the Indianapolis Colts were shocked.  Even if the Broncos keep Pryor in the pocket, he will beat them with his arm.  Pryor is going to open up the field for his receivers and Darren McFadden to have success against the donks, and his inspiration will drive the Raiders to a victory!

    Each game TP2 has to get better and not make mistakes.

  • Shane Schilperoort

    Just Win Baby!!!!! Oh, and, he makes the #2 look good!

  • Shane Schilperoort

    I believe he will. He’s a student in the film room. Players like Marcel Reece, Charles Woodson, Darren McFadden, Rod Streater, and many others make comments about how much time he spends in the film room trying to get better. Have faith, TP2 is doing it.

  • Angel

    Hell yeah. Go Raiders

  • BigNinaRoss

    Yes baby! Win or lose, The Raiders will show the world that they are a force on Monday night!

  • Jay Haskins

    Don’t even worry about it. Like I have been saying since LAST preseason, when TP outplayed both Palmer and Lienart, that he only knows one way to do it. He’s a natural playmaker, and a winner (HATES to lose), with Bo Jackson ability at the QB position. Do some research on his high school basketball career to see where I’m coming from. I stand by my prediction I made when the Raiders finally made TP the starter, 9 wins or more.

    What a terrible article, this writer has a serious case of Fandom. The Raiders didn’t shock the world by losing the to colts. The Raiders will win 5 games max, by the way Raider nation, I know 5 wins is good by your standards, but it’s considered a terrible records by the upstanding citizens, and fans of the Denver Broncos. 30 years of Raider misery is about to be 31 years.

  • Ricky Bobby

    It was a CRIME watching da hose this guy last yr . If not for John zmadden, Flynn would be starting now.

  • The_Civilian_James_Trapp

    Talk all you want donkey dik, the only reason you ponies have any super bowls is due to Bowlen cheating the salary cap. BTW, your whole fan base should be put on Planned Parenthood posters as a motivation for birth control…And your uniforms suck too.

  • Nick doucher

    Well, you just proved me right about the Raiders and thier fans, all talk and no game. RAIDERS Embracing losing since 1984!

  • Phil Mokate

    Yet, if we are losers, we still have the out right lead in wins against the Denver Broncos (107 meetings, Series= 60-45-2 including the playoffs). All you hater donkeys can do is spout about the Raiders not winning a Super Bowl since 1983. Fine, but your team hasn’t won a Super Bowl in the last decade, or been to one, and we’ve been to one within the last 10 years. I realize that it’s easy to slam on a team when it’s down, but even with Manning last year the Donks couldn’t get it done in the playoffs. Don’t believe all the hype the media is spinning about the Broncos, or you’ll be seriously disappointed at seasons end. Speaking of Super Bowls, the Raiders have been to the SB 5 times and won it 3 times, while the Donkeys have been 6 times and only won it twice. I like the Raiders odds better.

  • Raider Grant

    Let’s go Raiderrrrs!

  • Nick doucher

    It sounds like your Dads Raiders were pretty good, but your Raiders are a poor team. Ask him to sit down and tell you stories about what it was like to watch a winning team.

  • Shane Schilperoort

    First and foremost, I’m 41. Maybe you should realize who you’re talking to before you touch the keys with your fingers. Been a Raiders fan longer than you’ve been a donkey fan, I guarantee it!

  • Nick doucher

    Wow 41!! So the Raiders were good when you were a young child, my bad! Do you have any memories from way back then?
