As you probably figured out I never made it to the Raiders game. Instead I watched it at home and went through an entire box of Kleenex with my annual fall cold. But I did see the game and Carson Palmer wasn’t so hot, but of course he’s entitled because he had been sitting on a couch and now he was in a real game. So, sure, we give him a break.

Still, here’s a hypothetical. What if Palmer never turns out to be very good? I’m not saying he won’t. I’m just asking. When the Raiders got him, I read all over the place that Jason Campbell had played his last game as a Raider.


If Palmer cannot regain what he had, it sure would make sense for the Raiders to keep Campbell in mind. It is difficult to make definitive statements like Campbell is history when we simply don’t know how things play out.
