Paul & Kate: Leinart's shaky audition
Raiders reporters Paul Gutierrez and Kate Longworth break down backup quarterback Matt Leinart's performance in place of Carson Palmer.
Don't Raiders fans I'm Kate along with an -- on CSN California dot com with your Raiders insider Paul good to hear that we are down on the field after the Raiders loss at Carolina to the Panthers and that. They lost more than just the game has Carson Palmer was knocked out the game with a rib injury. Pretty here is play actually and the first course we saw Matt -- second. What did you see from that play at the very -- game out there and then how lab that handled the duties Anderson. Well it was funny BY it's not funny but from the players perspective it's not a lot of plays that thought it was a clean good hard it and they see the replay you see that the defense player at his helmet lowered. Into the back and that's not a clean play it's it's kind of a dirty play and and in watching the defense of players' reaction afterwards -- kind of mocked Carson when he got up and celebrated over the fallen player in the went over to the Raiders. Sidelining kind of sort of making gestures towards them so you're right it was definitely it should be gained throughout. -- Carson Palmer gets knocked out the new number two quarterback comes in and was the number two quarterback and I I don't know raider fans realize this the number two quarterback is meant liner which is why he was in the game he has the full. Brett the knowledge of the playbook and the fans may not realize that Terrelle Pryor. Has a handful of plays he has a package of plays and there's a reason why win Matt Leinart becomes the number two quarterback he goes in the game. And does a lot of things that didn't go and that's way obviously a lot of rust that was out there he said he was -- and in the pocket. But there's a reason that he was in the game for the duration and Terrelle Pryor was in there as a -- And talk about that knack -- mean he's number two is that they only get to number three Terrelle Pryor today they -- -- mean in a few more plays he was three up there. After the game ready -- that he seemed a little. Maybe not having that at first what did you see from his play and were you surprised perhaps maybe use them more in the reds on the haven't scored a touchdown on him. -- -- See him get out there we kind of got a clue of that from Greg -- this week when he talked about how and when they would use Terrelle Pryor and and you know lot of that is coach speak but it came to fruition you saw. He was in there for a couple of gadget plays and really that's where he is it as far as coaching staff is concerned. And any looked okay and it looked like the game was kind of too fast form and housing and how's he gonna get it against -- he's not in there and I would like to see him in there a couple more times. When they were in there in the red zone that would have been where you could've. Taken advantage of his speed taken advantage of his legs and had a broken play just let him trying to create something is really if he doesn't have full command of the playbook. Then you need to just have something happen just to spark the offense and I would like to see them do a few more things like that he obviously was not -- Yes -- -- -- that we don't talk to them after the game and that you know all these c'mon he's -- pretty by the book hey this is. Carson's team he's training Miette coaches getting you ready but I dictate -- at -- he wanted to be out. Yeah and and maybe a lot of that was because when the starting quarterback goes down and you've told yourself so many times you've -- gonna be the good soldier. You think you going to be able to go out there and makes them have an eight. The competitor in him he wants to help this team succeed and it's a situation where he thought he could help the team succeed I'm sure. And I like I said earlier and he probably could of done some more things in the red zone and created some plays but obviously Dennis -- set themselves they just do not think he's ready to be out there every down. And no doubt this is this guide us out here Cam Newton is -- -- with -- and and at practice a lot of the get under -- in thinking he can do that to him. A the only way you really can prepare them more as if he would've jumped up and dropped it Tommy Kelly in the face mask and punched Mike Mitchell a couple times and punched miles -- oh and then whoever the referees. Where there he could one up and bump them to and that would got a really ready so. Yeah I don't know cam Cam Newton you know. Daly did in and did not get kicked out of the game which. Is kind of remains. All right well there you had it breaking down the prior controversy a little did add that Newton because like he got his -- out on the field. And now we'll join you in -- EAL and that. Seats because we got some exciting coming -- at the -- game it's obvious we got to check it out -- follow -- on Twitter.
