Overall grade - B
He wasn't bad but he wasn't great — for Pryor, however, that can be seen as progress. His passes were far more accurate than at the beginning of the preseason, so if he ever finds the right balance between running and passing, Pryor could be a usable weapon in the near future.
Q4 - B
Another un-impressive quarter put forth by Pryor, but in the grand scheme of the entire game, it was just about the best thing to happen to Oakland. Pryor made a few nice throws in the final drive to get the Raiders on the board with a field goal.
Q3 - B
Like Leinart, Pryor got just three pass attempts in his first quarter of action, however, Pryor looked slightly more comfortable and effective. His best play was the one in which he eluded the defensive lineman and lobbed a pass up to a wide open receiver down field. Was it a perfect pass? No. Did it work? Yes.
Overall game grade - D+
While the offensive line didn't do Leinart any favors, he passed that feeling along to the receivers by throwing behind them consistently. The second-string job is still Leinart's for now, however, if he struggles in limited action, the calls for Pryor will come loud and clear.
Q2 - D
After a 1/3 first quarter, Leinart went just 2/8 in the second quarter, including an interception. Unfortunately for Leinart, that stat line is a pretty accurate reflection of his performance. With lots of passes behind his receivers, Leinart wasn't doing anyone a favor.
Q1 - B-
With just three pass attempts, Leinart didn't have a lot of time to prove himself, but he looked flustered for most of the quarter thanks to weak pass protection. Leinart did make a nice pass to the rookie Brandon Carswell, but Carswell juggled it heading out of bounds, leading to an incompletion.
I'm guessing Leinart will get a few more reps in the second quarter, so we'll see if he's got a few decent passes left in the tank. He wasn't bad, but if Pryor impresses again, this won't bode well for Leinart.
