Well, this is probably what NFL training camps are for, right? Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who apparently played football in high school AND college, somehow got through both of those levels without learning how to properly throw a football. According to the Bay Area News Group, Pryor has been practicing with famed throwing guru Tom House on his mechanics during the offseason. "I never really knew how to throw a football before," Pryor said. "It's coming along. I'm getting way better. I probably missed four or five throws out of 80, 85 throws today. I might ice my arm as a precaution tonight, but it feels great. "They've got me going in the right direction to be a pretty good quarterback who knows how to throw the ball." Maybe when people saw that the American education has to gone to pieces, they're not that far off. But this is amazing. The fact that nobody had worked with Pryor on these types of fundamentals until now just boggles this mind. Questions? Comments?
