    For everyone who bashed Mike Brown for holding onto Carson (myself included)

    The guy was right…

    For once…

    Dear Carson,
    Thanks for a couple of good seasons (2005 was your year, dirty Steelers) and several bad. The best thing you did, was allowing Gruden to get his man, Andy Roadhouse Dalton!Don’t the door hit you on the way out. Who Dey!

    I never thought id say this but Mike Brown is brilliant.

    Brilliant trade for the Bengals… did anyone over by the Raiders see Palmer play the past few seasons… I swear, Favre would have been a better choice, at least you wouldn’t wreck your draft for the next 2 years

    I’m a Palmer fan…But one 1st & a second potential 1st?? to much for one player over 30 & post peaked…

    Hold on to him, until someone gives up the farm to acquire him. Great GM move…..

    Dang!! How could have Mike Brown done any better? I respect how he handled this situation. Bengal fans have alot to smile about right now. Andy Dalton is a winner. But still GO STEELERS

    We just lost our best Scout when it comes to the draft( Al Davis). The Raiders have the youngest team in the league (age average). We don’t need the draft next year..Pick up a free ageant here and there. Jason Campbell isn’t Coming back in 6 weeks ..its his throwing shoulder people !!! great trade for the raiders

    I wanted Palmer traded – As a Bengal’s fan.. I wont even lie.. I am kind of sad.. this was a guy who gave us so much hope. I really wanted it to work for Palmer.. sadly it just didn’t happen. I will miss Palmer on Sundays in a Bengal uniform- I love Dalton but even when you get something better- you still remember your ex and the good times you had. I’m not going to wish Palmer bad luck.. he could have did what that loser Corey Dillon did and went on national TV and forced the hand off Mike Brown. I respect Palmer.. he did it the right way- I can guarantee if he went on TV and pulled those Corey Dillon stunts.. he would be have been traded sooner- He forfeited 6 weeks of his career to do it the right way. Best of luck to you Palmer.

    Shock and awe don’t even adequately describe how this trade feels. Seems like an incredible overpayment for a 32 year old QB. I guess the thinking is he gives us 2 or 3 solid seasons to get Pryor eased into the lineup. Flabbergasted.

    Now we Bengals fans have to root against Palmer so we get a high pick next year then root FOR him in 2012 to win a playoff game so we get upgraded to a 1st in 2013

    Congrats Mike Brown and Bengal fans. This could effect the franchise for many years.

    ROADHOUSE!

  14. conjecture101 says: Oct 18, 2011 12:46 PM

    would you trade 2 1sts for a chance at a super bowl? because thats what the raiders just did.

  15. purplekoolaid1 says: Oct 18, 2011 12:53 PM

    Get rid of that hideous wig homie.

  16. sniffles sports report says: Oct 18, 2011 12:55 PM

    i am a little surprised by the majority of the reaction being negative about Palmer. He is only 31 years old, threw for nearly 4000 yards last year with 26 touchdowns. He should fit this offense better than Campbell w/ his arm strength and down field accuracy. Oakland is looking too good early in this season to just turn the team over to Kyle Boller.

  17. raymondtx says: Oct 18, 2011 12:58 PM

    Geez..that seems like too much. People thought the talent around him held him back last year…but, the red rifle seems to be doing OK with that same talent. I thought those crazy trades went with Al.

  18. medialovesthecowboys says: Oct 18, 2011 1:05 PM

    It’s a long shot, but both Cincy and Oakland are 4-2 and playing fairly decent ball.
    Bengals have a very underrated defense that’s younger than both the Steelers and Ravens. If they have a monster November and December, they could be in the post-season.

    If Oakland continues to play well and starts limiting the mental errors I have no doubt they can surpass San Diego who once again is an overrated team in a fairly weak division.

    My point is can you imagine a Raiders/Bengals playoff game?? Wow.

  19. ampatsisahypocrite says: Oct 18, 2011 1:12 PM

    Here’s the REAL breakdown: acquire Palmer, and just make sure you surround him with an all-pro line, an all-pro RB, and three top-shelf WRs, so Carson can pad his stats.

    Otherwise he’ll sulk and quit like a little baby.

    ——————————————–

    Correction: Palmer threw for 32 TD’s last year. Six went to the defense.

    Wow, I love Al Davis for what he was for the game, but I thought after his passing deals like this would end. A 1st rounder, and possibly another 1 or 2 CRAZY! Desperate! What the hell where they thinking! He is not the guy we all thought he would be out of USC. Then quits on his team, takes his ball and goes home abandoning his team for selfish reasons(big baby). 1st rounder for that guy, man this is an absolute disaster of a move. What about how well JC was playing. Next year what do u do? U gave up a 1 and maybe another 1 or 2 for a guy thats not better 4 u than your (injured)QB. All that for almost half a year. Raiders do it again!

    —————————————–

    Actually you are wrong.. you’d better hope he plays well this year.. the condition is that the Raiders win a playoff game THIS year.. 2011.. not next year….

    I get the need to bash the Raidas…

    I get that this is a high payment, high risk…generally speaking, but not as much specific to Oaklands situation.

    Oak doesnt really need much from the draft in 2012…they are a young team that is good most everywhere.

    They get 2 good 2012 picks (comps) for gallery & namdi…surely used to sure up the defensive backs.

    What is so wrong on the payment side here? 2013 2nd or 1st…same story, but obviously only one round.

    On the receiving end, they get a gun slinger who is proven. A leader who had good reason to want to leave a mess. That mess was likely the reason for any decline in performance.

    Oakland can excel with a “decent” QB a la Cambell since it the D line, running game, and special teams that have done it for them thus far. Oakland has a ton of speedy YOUNG receivers that often miss poorly thrown balls. Palmer is a long ball accuracy stud.

    Adam Shine wont shut up about how this is such a lopsided deal, but then again that just shows his typical stupidity….
