Dennis Allen on agent's theory: 'That's the stupidest thing I've heard'

If you thought it was stupid of Jerome Stanley, the agent for Terrelle Pryor, to say he believes the Raiders were trying to set up his client to fail by allowing him to start in Week 17, Oakland coach Dennis Allen agrees with you.

Like, really, really agrees with you.

"That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard," Allen said Tuesday, via CSN Bay Area. "This isn't the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. This is football."

In case you missed it, here's what Stanley said.

"I think they're putting him in hopes that he fails,” Stanley told “That's what I think Coach is doing. I think they're putting him in hopes that he has a bad game, so he can then justify the Matt McGloin situation. I think that's what's going on, I do and it's ridiculous. ...

“You have to understand the [situation] Coach is putting him in, he doesn't want him to look good,” Stanley continued. “And you can write that. He doesn't want him to look good because, if he looks good this week, it makes the past five weeks look like a bad decision. [Allen] doesn't want [Pryor] to look good, he wants him to look bad. That is what is going on.”

Pryor went on Twitter to apologize, and he also had a conversation with Allen to work through the issue. Said Allen: "This is a time where you have to separate player from agent."

Oh yeah, Pryor and his agent also had a chat.
