i believe g smith will go to arizona or buffalo. cause RAIDERS ain't gonna take geno smith as their 3rd pick. if they call t pryor unexperienced, than so is geno smith. if they call palmer too old, then gino smith is to unexperienced. and if they decide to release palmer, than pryor would be the best bet. trust me, gino smith is not going to come in and be a starter the way people envision it. and if palmer was released and pryor were to start, we'd probably go after matt flynn and in that case, AND, keep m leinart. best bet of all? keep palmer if he decides to restructure! under palmer, while pryor learns, i'd say keep m leinart and simply keep things the same at (qb) till next season.

Swear I just read the other day that the Raiders had already decided to use Palmer as their Starter next year!

decision is all well said and done! problem is palmer has to come to an agreement to take a pay cut. so, until that happens? nothing is on paper that say's he will be the starter.

Ok I wasn't sure about that. But that's ok my team will be a little better next year. Raiders are our rivals :).

Palmer isn't getting any younger and the Raiders aren't going to the SB in the next 2-3 years. If he wants a shot at a ring, he is better off looking for another team. If he goes Free Agent, he would be the top FA outta the bunch and should have no problem getting that nice payday. He is still a top 10 QB in this league.

If the coaches feel that TP isn't "cutting it", maybe they want Geno to 'groom' behind Carson for a couple seasons....????

Maybe they're looking at Geno to use as trade bait.....???

I don;t see Palmer's contract as a big problem. A small problem? Yes. But with Seymour gone and Kelly maybe gone, that should free up enough cap space to cover Palmer easily.....and then some. Maybe a simple restructuring to split the cap hit over a couple years.....but they already did that last year, didn't they?

However.....if the team releases or trades Carson to free up some more $$, that would give us enough to stack our secondary with FA's.:)

If I'm not mistaken, Carson is under contract for 2 more seasons--so he can't just become a FA. The team would have to cut him.....and if the team cuts him, how much $$ would we owe him? Anybody know his contract? How much would we have to eat (and how much cap space) if we cut Palmer?

Smith has a couple of issues according to a sports blog. He has small hands which means more fumbles. Andy Reid drafted McNabb the same year Dante Culpepper was drafted and dropped him from consideration because of it. The second issue is at the combine there were reports that Smith was having trouble understanding what the coaches on the field were asking him to do. this may not mean anything, but that is a cause for concern. Next year's QB draft is supposed to be good at this point.

Yup. Because Air Raid QB's are spoon fed the offense. There are primary reads on each play and Geno was horrible at going through progressions. Even "Madden" video game players can remember one route. Hence, his success.

to tell you the truth, palmer is better off restructuring and staying his two years that he has left for the benefit of the RAIDERS. but? for his sake?, he's better off taking a job elsewhere and keeping his money and getting an extra year and be a starter!
we still won't take geno smith as our first pick. we'd rather pick up a later pick at (qb) that might turn out just as good as g smith or better yet? pick up matt flynn just to be safe in case pryor stumbles.
