A 1st round pick for Palmer??? WTF lol
They have Terrel Pryor on the team for what???
Its easier to do this on here than Twitter.
The first round pick going to the Bengals will be no higher than #5. The Raiders will win more games so by seasons end, the pick will most likely drop out of the top 15.
You can't be serious about Pryor? The Raiders are not going to put in a rookie QB, who was taken in the supplemental draft, to try and lead the team to the playoffs. As of now, he is more of an athlete than quarterback, so Pryor is not an option.
Palmer is younger than Brady and Manning so age is not a factor.
His interception rate needs to improve, but many of his interceptions are due to the fact he takes chances often. His top target was OchoCinco and that was a bad situation for the last 2-3 years. He still almost threw for 4,000 yards last season with a bad receivers. REMEMBER THIS (I'm not comparing the two because Favre is one of the greatest), but Favre threw 15+ interceptions 14 times in season, 20+ interceptions in a season 6 times. In 2005, he threw 29 interceptions. You have to look at what type of quarterback he is. He is not a Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers or Peyton Manning pro style QB, he is a QB that will throw down field for big plays.
Palmer will be the best QB in Oakland since Rich Gannon. He fits their style perfectly and will enjoy being back in the sunny weather on the west coast. It's easy to forget about a comfort level with players and right now, motivation is a factor with Palmer. He has a chance to prove the doubters wrong.
The situation for Palmer is a perfect one. As a player, after being tired of a situation somewhere you are then presented with a chance to go to a team hoping to get back on top (like you are), back to the west coast where your from, and to an offense that will allow you to make big plays with your arm? Despite what people may think about Palmer, he's not a scrub and it was just a few years ago where people thought he was in the top 5.
