"Turn out the lights, the party's over" Hue. Carson Palmer is NOT the second coming of Jim Plunkett. He's not even the second coming of Rich Gannon. Maybe equivalent to the Pastorini years.

who's better lbf, palmer or cuntler? i'll tell you what. cuntler may need (wr's) to make him "that" good.but even if he had them, he loves throwing int's. palmer, has receivers to make him that much better. so, if palmer "isn't"? he will be!

OG. Look at Cincy now and last year. Last year they had 85, TO, and Rosey Palmer. They didn't do so well. Now they have rookie Dalton, rookie Green and are 4-2. Rosey did not elevate those around him. He whined, quit and became a Holer

i couldn't have said it better! but truth is, you know how it goes. we gotta hope things will be different. we honestly know he is a decent (qb) at work. oakland is different and maybe he will get the point that this may be his last stop and he has to make the best of it. those things you wrote are facts. but for our sake, he was the better choice out there, besides garrard. and garrard was contacted but let the RAIDERS know he had surgery comming up. i mean, what other (qb) is out there? we went on a betting spree and put all our marbles in. this is it! do or die! but palmer was our best choice, and honestly? he's decent. as long as he does not come out with that same attitude as in cinci. he doesn't injure easily? that is a big plus.

Pastorini lasted less than one year. Some of us were around at that time. To say Pastorini years, shows your ignorance. Palmer is more like Plunkett than Gannon. Gannon could not throw the long ball and made his living on having receivers that could catch. Plunkett was a #1 overall pick, like Palmer, and I expect the same result when it comes to winning and play-off appearances.

If Palmer catches on to our offense well, We should be good. Our CBs still suck though.

The CB's are young. Plunkett had Lester the first Superbowl and Hayes and Haynes for the second. I suppose Palmer will have to do a little more than Plunkett to get the same results. For the record, correction to Hue Jackson, the Raiders trading for Mike Haynes (and how little they paid and when he came to the team) was the "Greatest Trade".
