Pryor’s Good Side

Pryor has rushed for 504 yards in eight games with two touchdowns. He has proven that he can run. He is in second as having the most rushing yards in the Raiders squad, right behind running back Rashad Jennings. Pryor’s running abilities is the best thing he has offered so far this season for the Raiders.

Pryor’s Bad Side

Terrelle Pryor’s bad side is his passing abilities. This is the most important part about a quarterback. In eight games, he’s been sacked 29 times, despited his elusive running abilities, and intercepted 10 times. His quarterback rating is 69. His completion percentage is 58.9%.

McGloin’s Good Side

Matthew McGloin has started in three games and has four touchdowns, one less than Pryor, which is five. McGloin’s rating is a lot higher than Pryor’s, sitting at 84. However, McGloin’s passing rating is less, at 56.9. The passing rating is less for McGloin due to the fact that he throws more than Pryor. McGloin is strictly a pocket passer compared to Terrelle Pryor.

McGloin’s Bad Side

The rookie’s bad side is that he was not able to get two victories that the Raiders already had in their pocket. McGloin was shut down in the second half of both games against the Tennessee Titans and the Dallas Cowboys. Maybe it was not his fault! This could easily be blamed on the coaching or the receivers who fail to make any big plays in the second half, even with Pryor at the helm.

Conclusion

Again, both quarterbacks have their ups and downs. However, the Oakland Raiders need to win all their remaining games to stay in the hunt for a wildcard position in the playoffs. So, the big question remains. Who should lead the Oakland Raiders for the rest of the 2013 NFL season? Terrelle Pryor or Matthew McGloin?
