Raiders Get Carson Palmer

I didn't think they'd pull it off, but they did. The Raiders had to give up a first-round draft pick in 2012 and a conditional first-round pick in 2013. The conditional is if the Raiders win a playoff game in the 2011 season, the Bengals will get a first-rounder in 2013. Otherwise, it will be a second-round pick if they don't. In short, Oakland thinks they can win NOW.

Seems like a huge asking price to me, but I guess Mike Brown needed some extra convincing. Bare minimum that's a 1st and 2nd round pick for a 31-year old QB who hasn't had a professional snap in six weeks. Thankfully, Oakland has a great running game to ease Palmer in.

Waaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy toooooooo much for this guy!And to think that many of you wanted the colts to pull the trigger on him!I like his arrogance,but not his productions.

We should have tried to get Palmer the instant they knew Manning was not going to play. If he had come in before the season started we could be 2-4 at least with him which is fine in a weak division like we have. It would have been worth giving up a lot for the chance to make the playoffs in the year we are hosting the Super Bowl. We also don't know if Manning is ever coming back so Palmer would have made a good replacement in the event Manning doesn't return.

Are you crazy? Give up 2 1st rd. picks for a 1 yr. rental. That would be the epitomy of stupid!

Hey, I don't think it's a bad deal at all. Call me crazy, but with Carson I think the Raiders have a Superbowl chance. Not a knock on Jason Campbell, but he isn't an amazing quarterback. Carson has done many things with the Bengals, the BENGALS. The Raiders are a good running and defensive team. Carson gives them their passing game. The Raiders all around were god with Jason Campbell. They have only lost to the Bills and Patriots. Carson gives them that extra oomph.

If I remember correctly Carson Palmer wasn't cut until after we had already signed Kerry Collins. If not I'm sure someone will correct me. rotfl

He clearly was never cut, hence the trade...

This seems like way too much for Carson, but I really like him and hope he can turn his career around in Oakland.

    • First off.. Thanks Superman for writing this up on Young   I would be very happy with either Young or Stroud as our pick     In regards to Richardson   If teams trade up and both Young and Stroud are gone (I think its a small chance)   But.... If that happens, I would consider taking Richardson over Levis   at 4   I really dont want to give up 2 firsts and 2 2nds and a player for a move up to 1            
    • Yes.  I could be negative and see only how every Qb we take could bust...and with the questions each has any one of them could be a bust, but I look at this pretty optimistically.  We need a QB, and I think this draft presents a lot of possibilities and choices that could work out for the best.  Trade up for the elite guy and he works out.  Stand Pat for the second best guy and he works out.  Trade back and pick up a traitsy player who needs a year to develop in a year where we have no chance of going to the SB anyway.   There are about 5 or 6 QBs that could all work for us depending upon if the investment is correct.      As a fan, I can't see me criticizing any of the picks or moves Ballard makes this draft when it comes to QBs.  But, as a fan, I reserve the right to later say...."He should have known better" if it doesn't work out.  He's getting paid to know better.
    • I don't accept your description that its trolling.  Trolling is intentionally saying something simply to stir the pot...to muck up the works.   If this got to a national level.... to a general football loving base, sports loving base, or general population, you don't know that the responses would be limited to just Colts fans.  You may have thousands of people who would see the Jeff hire as simply a rich white billionaire hiring is buddy over more qualified candidates.....maybe even minorities.....and would sign the petition to voice their concerns over such .    Which would be a concern to them beyond caring how many Ws and Ls Jeff might cause.     If Jeff is hired, there will be questions from general football fans, sports fans, or the population asking "What does this hire say about the NFL?"   I'd wager that the possibility of Irsay "hiring his buddy over other candidates" already has grated on enough people to contribute to their existing opinion about whether or not Jeff should be hired.    And this is the type of emotion the media morphs into and taps into.  Effectively, the media trolls the population trying to get them all triggered up.   Besides.  Petitions by their nature are one sided.  10,000 signatures may sound like a lot, but it may be less than the 11,000 votes that would support Jeff for HC if an actual poll was the medium used for fan expression.  Or less than the 150,000 opinions who are comfortable leaving it up to the owner to hire the HC he wants for the reasons he wants.  These opinions would never be known, because if you are comfortable leaving it up to the owner, you are the type of person who is not going to sign a petition in the first place.  Petitions are a form of activism, and most people aren't activists.  And most activists could care less if their opinion is in the minority, they just want their opinion to prevail.
    • If Ballard believed in Br that much he would have drafted him in R2at 53.  He was considered by some to be 1st R talent.  BR slid from where he was projected.  He was there and CB took him, but this certainly wasn’t the strategy .  We will wait until a projected 1st or 2nd rounder whom I really like slips to 77.
