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.

Thanks I wasn't really sure what happened.

    • We know... we are all here because we love the game and we love the colts, can you please stop acting like the forum shrink - it's nauseating lol. We as fans are allowed to comment what we want on this forum, its not always going to be rainbows and daisies, deal with it. We all want to see the colts win and when we s*** the bed on a sunday afternoon we are allowed to have a vent and discuss where we need improving etc even if that does occasionally come with some over reaction sprinkled in. You probably thought this was a random comment to quote but its a build up of your posting as a whole and I chose to reply to this one lol.   Anywayyy, Phil did have a good game against the Bengals no doubt, but he has been very average or perhaps below average for the most part. I hope he can hang with some of the better teams we have coming up on our schedule but I do have my doubts that we will see more of the bengals type play from him very often.         
    • we'll see where we're at right after the Ravens game
    • You could be right, but the certainty with which you talk is a bit premature and lacks the fragility of how the league frequently pans out. 
    • Yep. We are going to get beat by the Ravens, packers, twice by the titans, split with the Texans and then the Steelers. So an 8-8 season and maybe worse bc imo the Lions and raiders games could go either way. Just don't think this Colts team is good enough to beat the top tier teams and it's a toss-up with mediocre to bad teams.
