Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor Misses Big Opportunity Thursday Night | Bleacher Report

100 to No. 1 on offense and on defense, 10 per day for 10 days. What is #NFLRank? #NFLrank is the Twitter hashtag to use if you want to get involved in the discussion or just follow along. You can also follow along here: @ESPNNFL (NFL on ESPN) and on Facebook . How did we rank the players? We polled 63 experts to rate each player on a 0-to-10 scale, with 10 being the best regardless of position in the NFL. Ties, as denoted by an asterisk, were broken by determining which player had more ballots with the higher number (if players are tied, the player with three 10s is ranked higher than the player with two 10s; if the tied players had the same amount of highest numbers -- each with two 10s -- we moved to the next number: three 9s beats two 9s). Here is the full list of voters from ESPN.com, ESPN TV, ESPN Radio, ESPN The Magazine, ESPN Insider (including Football Outsiders and Pro Football Focus), ESPN Fantasy, ESPN Boston, ESPN Chicago, ESPN Dallas, ESPN New York and ESPN Stats & Information. #NFLRank Rankings

With offenses focused more and more on throwing down field and putting points on the board, the battles in the trenches between 300-pound linemenoften becomes unremarkable. Its a job for the selfless and the brave. Protecting the quarterback and making holes for the running backs is dirty work; work that resonates with Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Jim Turner. You see, 24 years ago, a young Turner decided to enlist in the United States Marine Corps like his father did before him. A tough kid out of Boston, he felt compelled to join the fight with Iraq the first one, for those counting and do his part for America.

So Thursday night against the Seattle Seahawks was a big opportunity for Terrelle Pryor , who's fighting it out with veteran Matt Flynn for the starting quarterback position. Pryor finished the game 3-of-8 for 31 yards and an interception, also adding 48 yards on the ground on just three carries. While Flynn continues to deal with a sore arm and has been unable to practice, Pryor had an opportunity to step up and earn the starting position with a solid performance, but he failed to make that decision clear for Allen. While Pryor still may get the starting nod, he could have made that decision much easier. Pryor completed just 3-of-8 passes Thursday night, one of which was this fantastic grab from TE Jeron Mastrud. Coming into the game on Thursday night, Pryor had completed 14 of 24 passes for 190 yards, adding one touchdown and one interception through three preseason games. He had also rushed the ball 11 times for 83 yards, with a touchdown on the ground as well. But Pryor looked inconsistent at best against the Seahawks, and that inconsistency is what made Thursday night a lost opportunity for Pryor. Below are two plays from Pryor and the Raiders offense against the Seahawks. This first play shows the natural athletic ability that Pryor brings to the Raiders offense. It's thekind of game-breaking ability that could propel Pryor into the starting position. Because while Flynn may be the veteran with more experience and a better natural passer (with a healthy arm), the Raiders offense isn't as explosive with Flynn under center. In this first picture, you'll notice the Seahawks bring six guys on the blitz on third down. As soon as Pryor gets to the top of his drop (right foot planted), he sees the blitz, and before he even considers throwing it down the field, he takes off running the ball. With a quarterback like Pryor, who has exceptional athletic ability to run out in space, when there's a lane to run when you're facing six on a blitz, then you go ahead and run the ball. This next picture shows you Pryor's ability out in space.
