After Sunday’s performance against the Indianapolis Colts, Coach Dennis Allen addressed the media and revealed who his starting quarterback was for the rest of the season. The man to lead the Raiders is Terrelle Pryor.
Terrelle Pryor will likely get some work running the Oakland Raiders’ first-team offense in practice this week following an impressive preseason performance. Whether he can win the starting quarterback job remains to be seen.
Freshman quarterback Jared Goff was picked to start for California by new coach Sonny Dykes. Goff has been competing since the spring with redshirt freshman Zach Kline and junior Austin Hinder.
Cardinal coach David Shaw announced Tuesday that the junior won the lengthy and close competition against sophomore Brett Nottingham. He replaces the NFL’s No. 1 overall pick and two-time Heisman Trophy runner-up Andrew Luck.
Say this about Alex Smith: The guy’s resilient. The top pick of the 2005 NFL Draft, he’s still trying to prove the San Francisco 49ers right and make it as their starting quarterback.
California coach Jeff Tedford said transfer Zach Maynard will be the team’s starting quarterback to open the 2011 season.
