Raiders Get Carson Palmer

Recommended Posts

http://sports.yahoo....?urn=nfl-wp9852

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.

Holy...

That's a little much. I like Carson Palmer but I wouldn't go so far as to mortgage my immediate future for him.

If they were willing to give that much for Carson Palmer, maybe we should have tried trading them Curtis Painter lol

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

Ever since his injury, Carson hasn't been that great. I certainly don't like the way he approached his situation in Cincy either. Not a guy I would want on my team

Now they have 2 picks in the 2012 draft... they should keep Palmer for the rest of the season... then they trade him for a 2nd and 3rd rounder in this years draft.

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.

Well, from Cincinnati's POV, they must be thinking "Wow, we got away with 6 different bank armed robberies."

Or:

"Merry Christmas Harry...

Happy Hanukkah Marv..."
