Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer has had to make an adjustment to a new offensive scheme this season, his first full year with the team, and his grasp of it will be part of the conversation during Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network on Wednesday afternoon.

Erik Kuselias will speak to Palmer as he prepares for this week’s divisional game against the Chiefs. A win Sunday would improve the Raiders to 3-4 and leave them no more than a game out of first place in the AFC West. We’ll find out how Palmer will go about getting that win and what he thinks the Raiders need to do to win enough games to remain in playoff contention this season.

Pete Najarian and Amani Toomer will hold a Players Only meeting about the Raiders’ prospects and they’ll also weigh in on several other topics up for discussion over the course of the hour. Mike Florio will be on hand to break down all the news from around the league on Wednesday and, as always, he and Kuselias will take your questions via Twitter.

It all gets going at 5 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network.

  1. You are an idiot^. Name one QB who hasn’t thrown a pick6..?
    I guess Brett Favre wasn’t a good QB….look up CP’s stats son, a couple of pro-bowls, playoffs & if it wasn’t for the cheap shot to his knee, our Captain would be more if a threat… Off the couch last year to rank us up in the top 10 offense in the league…w/H. Jack.

    Struggling a bit under another new scheme but is making big plays and keeping us Alive…defenses get paid too and ATL CB are beats…. Great read on their part… Moore could have tried a bit harder to come back…. This game is a team effort not a one man show….CP in my eyes is still a top 10 QB in the league and improving…. #RAIDERNATION

  2. @L1onhe4rt Bravo my good raider nationer….exactly what the heck i be thinking. Asante samuel is one of the best CBs doesnt matter how old he is and carson is throwing to (i hate to say this as a fan) youn receivers that could be dubbed second rate…so please stop the hatred and silliness. There are no qbs in the league throwing to guys the caliber of the raiders wr’s that are having phenomenal seasons…it just doesnt happen.

    improving?…..hes like 40 years old!…..why are raider fans so blind with everything?
    He’s 32. 6’5″, 230 lbs. His arm isn’t shot. He lacks established receivers. His line isn’t very good. He’s not the best QB in the league, but he’s not the reason they aren’t winning. Not every Raider fan is blind to everything, but most of Palmer’s critics are ignorant. Like you.

  4. That chump has never won a damn thing. Just like Romo, Sanchez. They’re not good, they just give off the illusion that they do ok because of their crappy teams.

    That makes no sense. They appear to do OK because they are on crappy teams? Sorry for calling you ignorant. I was giving you too much credit.

  6. I am more confused over the Raiders getting play on this site. I don’t understand it and I don’t get the obvious lack of a Raider stab or a Steeler prop.

  7. CP3 is having a good start to the year. He is a true leader on this team. But he will be the first to tell you his personnal stats do not matter its the W-L he worried about. Im tickled pink to have him a raiders. QB id rather have then him is a short list. Rodgers, Brady, Brees, Eli…. Now the raiders 0-line has struggled and McFadden is not getting any wholes opening up for him. That is a serious concern. However its fixable. CP3 is definatly is a asset not s liability.

  8. Palmer is an average QB. He’ll lead your team through the rebuilding phase, but I can guarantee you within a year or two, when the other parts start to develop it will be his ridiculous pick sixes, poor clock management, and overthrows that are holding your team back.

  9. jm91rs: Have you seen him play yet this year? He had one pic 6 that Samuel made a great play on the ball. Not many CB’s in the league would of done it. Then he recomposed himself and lead the team down for a TD. He has been excellent in clock management in his two come back win this year. Game winning drive against Steelers and also the game tieing drive against Jags. He had one bad INT that he flicked the ball out avoiding pressure trying to make a play. The other int Moore fell down on the play, you can not blame CP3 for that.

  10. It has to be humbling yet frustrating for CP3 this year. With the preceived prestige, the talent he has, working with Knapp, another offense to learn, the critics, the haters, the doubters, new front office, new HC, team is rebuilding, and everyday he is one day older. Let’s hope he get’s better with age like Gannon.
