QB Terrelle Pryor is going to be getting his first career start in this one, and we’re going to take the words of Head Coach Dennis Allen to tell us how we’re going to be playing this one. “We don’t feel like [Pryor] is ready to be the backup quarterback.” Ok, coach, explain this one to us, then. If Pryor isn’t ready to be the backup, what makes you think that he is ready to be the starter? The Raiders have packed it in and did so a long time ago, while the Bolts have played well down the stretch of the season for the sixth straight year for the outgoing Head Coach Norv Turner. The Chargers are actually 20-3 in their 23 games played thus far in the last quarter of the season under Turner’s direction, and in spite of the fact that the road team has won and covered four straight in this series, there is no reason to think that this game is going to be even remotely close. Look for another San Diego blowout with another big time defensive performance.
