New environment raises Raiders intensity
Monday marks the first round of pads as NFL teams trim rosters to 75 players so one guy I'm not going anywhere. For the Raiders is Terrelle Pryor who shined in Saturday's win over Detroit. Accounting for 227. Yards of offense and three touchdowns including one on the ground. -- -- court with more on the silver and black. There's still one more preceding gave -- go go with the Raiders back on the practice field at the team headquarters in Alameda. That 2012 seed did just got real. Every time you change your surroundings you know people realize there's a little something different so. You know I think getting back here it's kind of finds time you know really. We're getting close. It's good to be back but it kind of gets you. Get your mindset in the right place. Third string quarterback Terrelle Pryor has his mind in the right place. After taking thirty to 40% of the reps in camp and he finally got to see his hard work pay off in game action. Had a great time. And just assume you know the tossing him and good food and some of teammates you have to do and they're as good as you -- -- you know sort of. The biggest improvement that he's made his.

At headquarters in Alameda I'm Kate longworth Comcast sports net. It's no surprise that the Raiders punt return game has really struggled this pre season it's only averaged four point four yards. Per return and that's by Brian McCann Jacoby Ford. An undrafted rookie -- -- Mohammed so what Dennis Allen head coach of the Raiders is trying to do is -- infuse some new blood in that punt return game. Expect second year cornerback the speedy demarcus van -- to get out there and get some run as the punt returner and I talked to the markets and van -- a little bit in the locker room today. And I ask what's the biggest difference between being outside -- as a quarterback by yourself and being a punt returner. He smiled and he said well imagine eleven angry -- all running down the field at full speed trying to take your head off. That is where demarcus van -- the bats -- -- it become ninety years ago hopes it is the case in.
