And being willing to accept that represents a huge step for Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor.
After he ran wild against the Colts in the opener, the Jaguars were playing to keep him in the pocket and make him throw. So Pryor avoided mistakes, handed it to Darren McFadden often and left with his first win as a starter.
“Everything we do with Terrelle is a growing process,” Raiders coach Dennis Allen said, via Scott Bair of CSNBayArea.com. “That’s what you deal with having young players. He also plays a position where there’s a lot of learning involved. Every play, every game is a learning experience.
“There were some good things he did in the game. There were some things we have to work on, but that’s part of football. We’ll keep working and he’ll keep getting better.”
