Palmer is good but not elite n def not worth double digit millions..he's a Damn bandaid that's getting wrinkly n dirty we need to take it off n throw it away .TP6 is the heald scar for our team, yes alot of u wont agree with me n some will but TP has it n him I know he does one game he showed what he can do throwing two TD's n rushed for one .before that game we had two weeks with out one single touchdown n he comes in n gets 3 I mean its not rocket science,even Ray Charles could see that.we need to give him a chance we seen what he can do yes he needs some work it can be fixed this off season..what he needs to work on is his accuracy n timeing with his recivers n making smart choices in critical situations,something Palmer couldn't do he was looking like tony homo choking...Pryor can escape n extend the play or just run we know he has speed on him its obvious..so let's give him a chance to be our starter I mean we have nothing to loose seriously were rebuilding our team n if doesn't work n we have another crappy season then we can pick up a QB n next years draft..but let's c what happens this September ...RAIDERS!!!!!!!

Agreed Palmer is mostly a band aid. But you cannot argue that this past season, or this next season, the Raiders will win more games WITHOUT Palmer than with. You simply cannot argue that because it would not be true. Maybe in 2014 and onwards, Terrelle Pryor can really step up and become a franchise QB, but right now, he has nothing but potential. And throwing young QB's in before they are ready is never a good idea. Vince Young? David Carr? Sam Bradford? All talented guys who got too much too soon on their shoulders, and fell apart physically, mentally, or completely stopped developing.

Convert half of Palmers salary to a bonus, and it half's his cap figure. Problem f'ing solved.

Good idea Corran. I do think this may be Palmer's last year with us if Pryor shows to have a bright future here.

I like Palmer for one more year but only if he redoes his contract. He is not worth 13MILLION he makes poor decisions and turns the ball over at critical times in the game. I believe He is one of the Raiders best leaders and gives them the best chance at winning next year but he has to come at a much lower price so they can sign a true number one reciever

It's time now,T.Pryor has showed is promise this last pre-season& last game of year,so I say get him in there,never know defences still might struggle with read option&we strike a genie in a bottle next year..but realistically we will prolly be lucky to be around 8-8 so y not give Pryor a year to groom under fire...Palmer is Palmer period,been that way since cincy...

This is unwise. QB is and was the BEST position on our team in terms of talent and production last season(maybe outside of Fullback)

You all need to get off Palmer's back. He did a great job with a bad, bad team and worse playcalling.

QB is not this issue here.

Palmer is easily our best player....and he is paid as such.

I like TP's athleticism and ability to scramble--I've always loved QB's who could scramble. But until he learns to throw the ball, he is not a starter. His accuracy is horrible. I'm sure (I hope) he will improve with time. This year definitely isn't it. Maybe 2014????

If Reggie & Allen decide to throw it all in and start "rebuilding", then, yes, trade Palmer and Start TP and get him seasoned......but get used to a couple more years of 4-12 and 6-10.

IMO, getting rid of Palmer (for TP) would guarantee no playoffs for us until 2015 or (more realistically) 2016......unless TP makes HUGE strides in his accuracy.
