Carson Palmer May Have Started His Last Game For the Raiders

Raiders QB Carson Palmer has had his share of mistakes, being intercepted in 9 straight games, including one Thursday night after getting into field goal range against Denver (along with a lost fumble backed up in the Raiders’ own territory).

However, it looks like he may get benched more to see potential franchise QB Terrelle Pryor in action than for any set of bad throws Palmer’s had.

This is an opportune time to make a switch with the extra three days to get ready for their home game against the Chiefs, and head coach Dennis Allen admitted that he would like to get Pryor on the field this season.

Palmer is a testament to how much the NFL game has evolved (and, to a lesser extent, how often his teams are failing to run to ball and how often they’re trailing). He has 28 career 300-yard games. Troy Aikman had 18.

Offensive coordinator Greg Knapp’s play-calling is often lacking, but it may be awhile before Carson Palmer gets another shot at a starting job if he loses this one.

    Thank Christ. Give someone else to screw it up. Palmer has been exceptionally efficient doing so this far.
