Easiest decision ever. Regardless of the player.Why?
He's a mediocre qb at best and he'd never see the field.
As a player, he's an athletic freak. RG3 looked 5x better than Pryor in his first season. But Pryor looked 2X as good as an injured RG3 last year.You explained why this was good for Seattle but this is a redskins site and it makes no sense why you said "I wish it was us" when speaking of the trade
It would only have made sense if we cut McCoy, or if we thought we had the luxury of using him on some gadget plays like Seattle may.Ya think? How many non-starting QBs do we need? We have way too many needs (and QB is absolutely not one) to waste resources.
They didn't cut him though. He said he wanted out after they signed Matt Schaub, and named Schaub the starter.Lol
Dude, the Raiders wouldn't have basically cut him if he had such a grea upside or traded for a new qb if they thought there was a future with him.
All the YouTube clips in the world won't change facts
He isn't a great passer. But he is 6'6, 235 pounds and runs a 4.38. And he's only 24 years old. He's a freak.Because he's third string and Pryor is second and has an actual chance to play. I don't know who you are calling Mr irrelevant either.
Gadgets aren't a solid offensive option and you never hear of a guy drafted because of his ability to run the gadget.
Pryor was barely good in Ohio St and if I recall he got in trouble up there just to be taken by the Raiders and barely start over Jason Campbell.
A 97 yard scramble play isn't what you hang a quarterbacks skills on.
No one said anything about trading Cousins. He'd remain the backup.Aren't majority of people skeptical of Pryor's ability to become a legit QB anyways?
I mean a 7th round pick for a guy like Pryor isn't a bad deal in fact it's probably a steal generally speaking, but I'm certainly not going to fret that we weren't in the running for him. I have faith Griffin will be healthy, be smart enough to avoid banging up his knee again, and will be the starting QB for the foreseeable future.
I'd rather have Cousins in if Griffin goes down than Pryor anyways...
