Reggie McKenizie's Guys

The Raiders have experienced plenty of change since the days of Tim Brown, Rich Gannon, and company. New coaches have arrived and brought new assistants, pursued new personnel, and implemented new schemes. While change is sometimes necessary, successful ideas and productive players have often been shunned simply for the sake of change.

Reggie McKenzie has taken this to a new level. For the most part, anyone associated with Al Davis has been shown the door. This has left the Raiders with a bare cupboard. There is no question the team has regressed from back-to-back .500 seasons as a result of this fire sale.

Terrelle Pryor is one of the few players remaining from the 2011 team. He has made some mistakes this preseason, no question. He will never be an elite drop-back passer. However, in a league in which Robert Griffin III and Colin Kaepernick are leading tailor-made offenses to the playoffs, Terrelle Pryor's value becomes evident. It is beautiful to watch Pryor operate on the run. He is simply bigger and faster than anyone on the field.

Matt Flynn has exceeded my very low expectations so far this preseason, but he needs solid protection to maximize his potential. The Raiders are in no position to capitalize on Matt Flynn's strengths. The surrounding cast is not talented enough.

Pryor has the ability to move the Raiders the length of the field in two minutes. Pryor can turn a blown protection into a 50-yard gain. Pryor most likely gives the Raiders the best chance to win this season. But he is not a Reggie McKenize guy.

Matt Flynn is.

The staff has two weeks to choose a starting quarterback. Whether it is Pryor, Flynn, Matt McGloin, or Tyler Wilson, I only hope the decision is made in the best interest of the Raiders.
