Raiders coach brushes off comments by Pryor’s agent

The Oakland Raiders will turn back to Terrelle Pryor for Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos. This will be Pryor’s first start since Week 10 but his agent saw it as nothing more than a chance to see the quarterback fail against a Denver Broncos team trying to claim the No. 1 seed in the AFC.

On Tuesday Pryor was left to apologize for the comments of his agnet Jerome Stanley. One person who is not taking the agent’s comments to heart is Raiders head coach Dennis Allen.

Allen is on the hot seat and can ill afford any missteps as even a win over the Broncos on Sunday would hardly guarantee Allen a third year in Oakland. Under Allen the Raiders are 8-23.

When asked about Stanley’s comments Allen referred to them as “stupidest thing I’ve ever heard.”

“This isn’t the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” Allen added. “This is football. This is a time where you have to separate player from agent.”

Pryor has one year left on his rookie contract with the Raiders. The Raiders figure to draft a quarterback early in the 2014 NFL Draft.
