"I'm angry at myself," Pryor told Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. "I don't think I played well. I thought Matt (Leinart) played great. I thought Carson (Palmer) played great. I thought everyone else on the team played great. I just think I played like dog crap.
"So I'm mad about that, about how I played today. So I'm angry and I'm going to come back stronger next week."
Pryor's primary challenge in camp is wrestling away the No. 2 job from Leinart. Other quarterbacks have shown this can be done, but Pryor failed to make a compelling case against the Cowboys, finishing 8 of 15 passing for 50 yards with a pick. Pryor's best work came on the ground, when he showed some of the scrambling ability that made him a household name at Ohio State.
