Terrelle Pryor could dominate, prefers winning

Terrelle Pryor hasn't made much of a secret of the fact he's felt a bit disrespected this season.  He started the season as a Heisman contender, but quickly fell off the radar thanks to guys like fellow quarterbacks Cam Newton, Andrew Luck and Kellen Moore.  Heck, Pryor wasn't even named to the Big Ten All Conference teams, instead being passed over for guys like Denard Robinson, Scott Tolzien and Dan Persa.  Which was something he's already voiced his displeasure over via Twitter.

It's obvious that this all bothers Pryor, whether he wants to admit it or not, because it seems like every chance he gets to tell somebody that he's better he takes it.  This time Pryor was talking to the Chicago Tribune when the topic of those other quarterbacks came up, and he made sure to point out that if he was in a different type of offense than the one they run at Ohio State, he'd be dominating college football.

"I'll put it like this: You put me in any of their offenses — any of them — and I'd dominate," Pryor said. "I'd dominate the nation. What those guys do, that's what they're supposed to do in their offense.

"They carry the ball 30 times a game. I carry the ball maybe five times. There are times I didn't even run the ball in a game. You put me in any of their offenses, where I can run the ball and have a choice to throw, I would dominate college football."

This is where I point out to Pryor that he could have been in one of those offenses had he chose to.  After all, he was being recruited at Michigan too, but chose Ohio State.  Which Pryor is fully aware of, but at the end of the day he makes sure to point out that while he may not receive all the accolades that the others do, there's only one thing he really cares about.

"People get into the statistical thing, and at the end of the day, what's the statistic that really matters?" Pryor said.

"We could have done better, but I'm 30-4. I want nothing else but to win. If I was having a lot of stats and I was losing, I would really be kind of mad. My competitive nature wants just to win, by any means. By any means, win. That's all I really care about, to tell you the truth, man."

Which is nice to hear, but it's obviously not the whole truth.  I'm sure Pryor cares a lot about winning, but if it's the only thing he cares about, why is he spending so much time complaining about everything else?

Travaris Jackson??? Must be tranny twin brother of Tarvaris Jackson... Oh yeah last time i chacked comparing "Tarvaris Jackson" to Troy Smith in the NFL meant nothing. Except that Troy Smith will start more games than Tarvaris Jackson this year.

Jerome76......your welcome it really is a blessing to see him do well as an Arkansas Razorback fan but also chaps my ass as a Denver Bronco fan.  That trade was one of the nails in the coffin for McDumbass!  Here's to Hillis going for a 1000 yards every year.  Goes to show what difference there is between college and NFL.  He was merely a fullback for McFadden and Jones and this year is kicking their tales in the NFL.  The guy is awesome!

He won the Rose Bowl last year and will take down a good SEC team in a few more weeks. Next year he'll dominate, win the Heisman lead the Buckeyes to a NC and be a 1st round draft pick at QB. I only wish he could find a better mentor than LeBum.

HAHAHAHA Pryor will not dominate!!! he wont be a qb in the nfl!!! Arkansas has put out better QBs in the nfl then Blohio St... Joe Fergeson ring a bell!! hall of fame!!  Ryan Mallet will be the next pure passer closest to Peyton Manning!! Travaris Jackson has done better than troy smith and whoever else ohio state has put out in the past 20 years!!

Lol Stanford has not produced a good NFL quarterback.  Andrew Luck is no guarantee to become a good NFL quarterback.   Also, Ohio State has had a quarterback who has started and won games this year...

Also Who ever was knocking the MAC........... Go Check the Stat's Although the MAC is a Weak Conference they do Produce alot of NFL QB's.

Also Agreeing with the other poster, If you want to be a NFL QB you dont' go to Ohio State (I dont' even know of one great OSU QB) You go to school's like one's in the MAC, or USC, Tennessee, Texas, Oklahoma, and Now even Standford (andrew luck)

So Just because he went to Ohio State, and Plays in Tressel Conservative Offense? He Should Be handed Everything? "I don't Think so my friend " (i Love Lee Corso). I will agree he will do well in the NFL as a Tight end or a Reciever Or Hell maybe he should go play basketball like the one article said. The NBA has plenty of 6'6" Pre Madona's (i.e. Le Prick aka La Quitter aka The Queen aka Wade's Side Kick)

Also did you guys know that Le Prick is Pryor's Mentor?

We See What kind of person Le Prick turned out to be.........Pryor can only Hope he learns from that Idiots Mistakes
