So, TP’s first practice with the Oakland Raiders is in the books! And I see the rumors were true that he chose #6. But after seeing that he was told he could not have #2, I gotta wonder why. Hmmmm lol Doesn’t matter. I’ll be coppin’ one!
As expected, it was a little shaky/rusty, but dude has had a whirlwind of a journey leading him to California. To think he’d step into his first practice and be lights out would be a ridiculous expectation. But I’m positive that won’t stop the skeptics from prematurely proclaiming that he’s a bust. If it hasn’t happened yet, it will soon. Just wait.
Honestly, nothing Terrelle does this season is going to affect my thoughts on his NFL future. Let him take in this season, be a part of the team with a full off-season, and full camp (next year), then maybe I’ll start to take inventory. But not until then. I suggest y’all do the same.
After practice, Coach Hue Jackson had the following to say about Terrelle:
“…looks like a quarterback, feels like a quarterback, sounds like a quarterback, and I’m very excited to work with him.”
So, can everyone just chill with the hyperbole already?
