Terrelle Pryor has performed well as the Oakland Raiders quarterback this season. The Raiders are coming off of a bye week, which Pryor spent working on his mechanics.
“There have been big improvements; I’m proud of my work,” he told NFL Media’s Albert Breer earlier this week. “And I have confidence that if I continue to work hard, I’m gonna get where I wanna be — and I wanna be one of the best. … I know I can do things other people can’t.”
“I see myself as a starter in the league, leading a team and having a lot of success doing it,” he said. “What’s important is that we keep moving forward.”
Even if Pryor isn’t where you want him to be right now, hearing the self-motivation in his comments and his dedication to getting better is certainly a plus. He isn’t downplaying the fact that his athleticism has carried him and his passing needs help.
This week, Pryor leads the Raiders against the Steelers. The Steelers pass defense is ranked 4th in the NFL allowing 197.5 yards per game.
