Raiders GM surprised by the play of Terrelle Pryor

Today Raiders General Manager Reggie McKenzie admitted that he was surprised that Terrelle Pryor beat out Matt Flynn for the starting spot.

From a standpoint of taking this offense, what Olie (offensive coordinator Greg Olson) has done, yes,” McKenzie said. “I mean, he’s come in … to compete and learn this offense, and he’s taken it and he’s done a good job. I’m pleased. Very pleased.”

McKenzie spoke with seven Bay Area-based reporters at the team’s headquarters in a half-hour roundtable chat and broached topics ranging from Pryor to team expectations to pending free agents to the need for the Raiders to get the ball more to playmaking fullback Marcel Reece.

The highlights, though, revolved around Pryor, whose work ethic has been uncanny.

“I’m going to give it all I’ve got until the wheels fall off,” Pryor said earlier in the day.

I myself have been really impressed with Pryor, because the kid doesn’t like to lose and you can see that in his play.
