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?

If he wanted to succeed at the next level why did he go to OSU? What QB has come from OSU that has really succeeded at the pro level? Yo seriuosly be looked at as an NFL QB prospect he needed to go to USC, Florida or some school along those lines in order to get prepared for the NFL. OSU is not a school to go to if you want to be a QB in the NFL.

Do us all a favor and check your stats before you pop off at the mouth.  OSU had 22 players with GPA's of 3.0 or better.  Michigan had 7.

He says he can do it?  But can he?  We think so but until he does shut up Terrelle!!!  You had the chance to be the man but passed up to go to Ohio State.

Pryor is a good guy.  He knows he didn't have the numbers this year for Heisman, but he's feeling disrespected because he was passed over in the All-Big Ten teams.  And that was inexcusable.  Do the writers and coaches really think he was not the best QB in the Big Ten?  Who would you rather NOT face in a game?  Come on.

Too bad this dude can't seem to dominate his own mouth.

"I mean everyone kills people, murders people, steals from you, steals from me, whatever."

Best...laugh...ever.

Folks, he chose the right school for him--dumb people go to Ohio State, intelligent people go to Michigan. Simple as that.

See what happens when the pocket collapses Cam Newton can't outrun NFL Linebackers, panicks and throws a pick.
HGHAWK, this is a myth. NFL linebackers aren't that fast. Everyone seems to think they all run a 4.4, but most of the fast ones run in the mid 4.6 range. Look at the combine numbers to see.
